Bingo...and a little competition!

Hello there! Happy Saturday!

Another week has whizzed by and it's time for another fab challenge from the lovely ladies at Sweet Stampin. This week we're playing a spot of bingo!

So you know how it works....three elements from the board....and don't forget some stamping! As soon as I saw the board I knew which line I wanted to include....

Yep, I had to go with purple....then I decided I wanted to work with embellishments as that's something I don't do very I went with pearls and flowers.

I am really pleased with this card, although my photo is very wonky, I love the layout and think the embellishments work well (I will have to experiment more often I think!). I have used polka dot papers, along with a pretty light grey paper. The pearls are the sticky variety and I think they go well with the polka dots.

For more inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week. You'll also find out all about our fab sponsor....

Now...if you also fancy a bit of a competition...we are celebrating our little afternoon tea blog turning two this month and we are giving away a lovely tea tasting adventure. It's a simple leave a comment competition...take a peek at Tea With Me and Friends to find out more!

Thanks for popping by today, we're looking forward to seeing your creations!

Let's see your stockings..... I'm not being saucy.....over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin this month we want to see your Christmas stockings!

Welcome back to Wedgie's World....I hope you are well and having a fab week so far!

So, I'm not sure where time is going to...but it's already half way through the year and we have another fab stamping challenge for you at Christmas at Sweet Stampin. We want to see your projects featuring Christmas stockings and don't forget you need to include some stamping!

Here is my card....

I have gone with a twist on the usual Christmas colour combo for this card, adding a splash of pink in with my red and green. I am not entirely happy with my paper choices, but it does look a bit different to the rest of my Christmas cards.

My cute little penguin and his stocking have been coloured with my Promarkers and I have added plenty of sparkle with my Stickles. Finally, I have added a little white faux stitching with a gel pen.

For more stocking inspiration pop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin challenge blog where you can see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created for you this month. You can also find out about our sponsor this month....

Any London dwellers who fancy entering a competition to win a lovely tea adventure at Piacha in London should head over to my afternoon tea blog.

Thanks for popping by today,

Something old and something new....

Hello there,

Happy Saturday! I hope you're well and have had a lovely week! I am actually writing this post on Thursday evening and the sun is coming streaming in through the's so lovely! I hope the sun is still shining when you are reading this post!

So, we're back with a fab new challenge for you over at Sweet Stampin....this week our theme is something old and something new. I love challenges like these as you get to have a good rummage through your crafty stash!!

For my project I managed to find an image that I stamped and coloured rather a long time ago...perfect for my something old....

As the image was already coloured in pink and blue using my Promarkers, I decided to carry this theme with my papers. I found the lovely pink gingham strip in my box of papers and also the wonderful cherry DP. The sentiment had also already been stamped....I do wonder which project these were originally meant for!

So, there are lots of "old" things on the card.....but what about the "new" I hear you cry! Well, if you look at the top right hand corner you will see three lovely, shiny pink gems....they are brand new!

For more inspiration for this challenge take a peek at the gorgeous DT cards on the Sweet Stampin challenge blog...while you are there you can also read all about our lovely sponsor this week....

Did you know that Lorna and I have started our own challenge on YouTube? Take a peek for afternoon tea gossip and general rambling....there is a new post every Saturday morning!
