Crafty Ribbons Challenge #11

Sorry

Not been with it at all recently :( - still bit shaky and stuff (not good for cutting and crafting lol)

So to keep you going (and laughing lol) here are my efforts for the crafty ribbons challenge I was sent the ribbons for... managed to finish these at least...in my defense I was sent contemporary when I said traditional so... that's why they are dire....lol ... not my crafting abilities (or lack of) at all! ;)


Wasn't sure what to do with different colours other than the 'usual' red so looked through my paltry stash and found green and yellowy card stock... it sort of worked (but I think not quite lol)



I found an orange butterfly so though woohooo this will do hehe




---
We were supposed to make 2 things so I thought I'd make 3 so they had the option of 'losing' one lol....



Mmmmm Haribo heart sweeties!

So there it is :)

...at least I finally got it done and for me I thought I did rather well lol...

*hugs*

Son-of-Mine birthday card and Crafty Ribbons Challenge

Finally finished son-of-mine's birthday card, which is great considering it's only tomorrow lol

I hadn't a clue what to make it with though, until I saw these on the lapashe site


I'd done Flippin' Christmas ones, Flippin' Men and Flippin' Women but the Flippin' Teenagers are Summink Else! lol.... there's a hippy one there too, as well as images of teenagers more drawn to The Side Of Dark Coloured Clothes... :)

Wish I hadn't written on there in a hurry though but he'll love it all the same!





I saw a challenge on the Crafty Ribbons site last week and got all excited and joined... before I realised I just didn't have a clue what to do..... we have to make 2 things at least for them so I'm trying to do 3 so that they can discard the more rubbish of the three.... I'm really worried about it actually.....

*bites fingernails*

Watch this space.....

The Crafty Saga for today

Oh oh oh what fun we is had today!!!

When I got up this morning quite wobbly I thought this would be another day without laughs.... how wrong can one Myz be?!?!?! ......

Little Myz decided today was going to be a craft day as her school is closed so of course I had to watch her... she's only 4 and goodness knows what havoc she could cause trying to alter the dog!... Soooo last year when people were making things with note pads and post it notes I bought a few along with calendars so that I could try to copy their great efforts and make some presents for Chrimble. However, as you know that all went pearshaped due to stuipd fluctuating health fluctuating *completely* the wrong way.......

...so I thought to myself.... Myz, Myz... why not get out all those bits and put them together? ... maybe you'll be able to create something marvellous?...

So I started with bits I already had and papers from my papermania stash I bought last year... (yes yes ... it was cheap ;) )I decided on 'green' as a theme as it was surely as easy as Pi .... seeing as Pi is always the same number innit ;)



So far so good.... but what could I put on the top right? I only had garish coloured post it notes or really huge ones....hmmm....




No! No! No! Definitely not!

...then I thought 'Hey I know!' and a lightbulb went on over my now-quite-hurty head

...I grabbed my scalpel and hacked away at the lighter coloured ones to try to 'make' small badly-formed post-its where there were once perfect large ones...



Ok, thought I, not sooooo bad, but there was altogether too much yellow action in one place... So I had the bright (ha ha see what I did there?) idea of putting yellow brads in the middle of the flowers, so at least there would be more yellow going down ......




So there we have it.... an exciting few hours, a very productive few hours... and do you know what?

...... Little Myz did half a card and then wandered off to watch Chris and Poi on Cbeebies......

Kids!......

Odds and Ends

Firstly some weird cards made with Dufex.... I really struggle with it but I was determined to make 2!



..and then some super hero children ...

I think my main buzz-words at the moment are 'skew whiff' and 'diagonal'

rofl....



*hugs*

Oliver's Orchard .. and a stray bear

Here are the cards I made with my Oliver's Orchard set from create and craft a short while ago. Well some of them... the kit is huge! ... I seem to like diagonals don't I? lol






Not quite sure what happened with this one... I'm a weird one when it comes to experiments lol.... but there you go... I'm sure someone may like it somewhere :) ...

Hello Kitty - Create and Craft

video

LOL I promised some of you to upload this ages ago but I couldn't work out how to get it off my phone as it had hidden it....

I love Nancy... I want her here to be my craft buddy! WAH!...... in fact I'd actually like anyone as a craft buddy.... Little Myz wants to craft in fits and starts according to what's on TV or whether she wants to play outside or not.... so she isn't reliable lol....

LOL how crawly was I in that email they read out?

....the card arrived a few weeks later and the front had fallen off!!!! In an identical one she made on the show Nancy explained you couldn't just use tape on top of the glitter card as it probably wouldn't stick too well... and what had been used on the topper..?... I bet it wasn't My Nancy that made it... prob someone else ;)

... Little Myz was really upset so I have to try to fix it at some point I guess... hehe

....it's the one and only time I have ever emailed in though... I couldn't handle the stress of doing it again hehe..... Little Myz loves watching 'Her Clip' again and again...and again

....so now she can watch it online hehe...

RIP poor next-door poochie :(



Next door's poor little sausage dog had to be put to sleep at the end of last year- she'd been suffering so much that it was obviously The Thing To Do but no easier all the same :(

I made them this card and agonised over the insert...I started with a whole host of condolences and threw away sooo many of them as they didn't feel 'right' and finally settled on a simple one....

...... it's always a blow to have to buy a condolence card but this is my first I ever made....

Pots of Gold!



Fiiiinally managed to get some pots of gold done.... someone put some new boxed Jack Daniels tumblers on Freecycle so I emailed back about them right away (not thinking I'd get anything as usually people swipe my stuff in 2 seconds but I have never got anything lol...) but luck/ providence/ whatever was on my side so I got them all done :)



The sweets were made for family/friends children instead of selection boxes.... that label took me ages to draw!!!! lol... I think they liked them in the end... However, if my health isn't at least 50 percent better this year I'll be getting the selection boxes! hehehe.....

...in the end I was folding labels in between dizzy fits and falling over times so, as with the cards and pots of gold it was rather a miracle they got done really .....

Ohhh the stupidness of the Myz....

Christmas Cards








Here are a selection of the Chrimbletastic cards my friends and family (and some of you lucky people lol!) got for Christmas..... some are better than others but it was a miracle I got them all done in the end believe me! :)



Coaster Calendars

Here are some calendars I finally managed to finish by the end of last term for Little Myz' teachers. Sorry it's taken so long to post stuff- health hasn't been good at all again and it was all I could do to finish all this stuff and couldn't blog it too.... stupid health..I asked Santa for some germbusters for Christmas but he doesn't seem to have brought me any so it will be lots of resting and trying to stress less for a while so I can get back to 'Myz' normal' which is about 75 percent of how I used to be lol.... it comes to something when you would be happy with 75 percent rofl....
