Christmas in July

Hi, another day on the film set .. at least today we had to be there at 6.15am, not sooooo early, but again we finished at 7.30pm. I had a change of costume today to a grey/blue checked dress with a grey cardigan as they thought the other was a bit too bright ...... AND I got to see BRAD PITT again, BUT this time just in front of me............. SEVERAL TIMES .......... and at one point I was also just beside him!!! BUT that is not all.... I am also going to be in a running scene just in front of him!!!! Wooo hooo hooo hooo :))))  AND he spoke to us as well, he said... "you're doing great guys" ooooooo so exciting... he is really really nice........ YES definitely worth it waking up so early!!!

Really can't wait for tomorrow now, hope I can sleep with all this excitement as I have to be there at 4.30am tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, onto some crafty business now.... I wanted today to let you know about the new Christmas in July stamps that Crafty Sentiments will be releasing next week. Look how fun and cute these new stamps are.... 

.. there will be five gorgeous new images

Do you want a chance to win them all ?

A Sketch with Stamp Fairy

Hello everyone, sorry sorry for being a bad blogger lately. I'm either working up till 6.00pm to be able to take all the vacation leave I need, or, like yesterday, being on the filming set at 5.00am........... and finishing at 7.00pm!!! ... I hope I don't give up, this is really tiring! So, unfortunately, blogging is having to take a very back seat at the moment... 

I did manage to make a card though, my DT Card for this week's StampFairy challenge. I used Thank You Jake digi stamp, coloured him with my promarkers, my CREAlies flower die, papers from stash and one of my new corner clear stamps which I got from LOTV.

Hi good morning, another nice sunny day here in Malta, seems that Summer has finally arrived :) Today I have my OSAAT DT Card to show you and the theme for this week is........ TAGS !! ... no it's not Under The Sea ha ha I must have misled you sorry, but I was inspired to put that title on my post today by my card! 

For my card this week I got to choose from one of Teri's gorgeous Delicious Doodles images and I quickly chose this lovely Seahorses image. Thought it would be perfect for any love themed card I would need. 

I coloured the image with my promarkers, added some glitter today as well, paper from my Me and My Big Ideas paperpack, cut the scallops with one of my fancy cut scissors, 'Forever and Always' sentiment from the Forever Friends 'Going to the Chapel' stamp set and small tag, from a freebie magazine stamp set.

Happy Anniversary

Hi I'm back! Yay thanks for all the nice comments in my previous post... I would have loved going to the beach with you all .... what a pity we are so far away!! 

So, having found myself alone at home this afternoon and housework all done, I just kept myself occupied in my craftroom making this card ... 

This card I am posting on the Stamp Fairy World but I thought I would post here as well today.

For my card I used Paul and Pauline image, coloured with my promarkers, papers from a magazine freebie, a butterfly punch from DoCrafts, sentiment is a freebie from Annette and just had to use my new English Rose die again. 

I got this die from My Mum's Craft Shop last time. Everything was wrapped up in lovely green tissue paper, which I decided to cut out some leaves out of, I love how they turned out... so happy to have got this die.

I am entering my card in these challenges.
- Pollycraft Monday 96 - LOVE / MARRIAGE

These are some gorgeous stamps that I got using a gift voucher from Tickled Pink Stamps that my sweet blogger friend Corry gave me as a surprise birthday present :) woo hoo, thank you Corry, I am going to have so much fun playing with these :) xx ... and do you see the stamp on the envelope? I don't collect, but this one I am definitely going to keep .. what a lovely souvenir...

as is this gorgeous postcard which I received from Celine Jo as a consolation prize to four of her candy participants. I used to collect postcards when I was young and receiving this today I rekindled my memories. Thank you so much Celine, I loved it xx

And some news now as well... Just read on the Times of Malta online that Brad Pitt and his lovely wife Angelina Jolie arrived in Malta today!!! I am really getting excited now... I hope I will get to see him.. and by the way, they are calling us Background Artists not Extras, he he so fun this is! 

So it's next Monday now for my costume fitting.. will keep you updated then.

Thank you for looking


Food Glorious Food

Hello, good morning, it's a nice sunny day here in Malta today, just perfect for a visit to the beach and some nice cool ice cream ............ just like the one I have on my card today.

This is my FIRST card for my new DT at Sweet Stampin' Challenge  :)  The theme this week is FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD and all the girls were given some cool fun images from Prairie Fairy to  play with.

For my card I chose this gorgeous triple cone ice cream image which I coloured with my promakers. I printed the ice cream three times and then cut and layered with foam for dimension.

Thought I should make something extra special for my first card ...
and so I made a Joy Fold Card for the first time.
I remember having seen a very similar card somewhere, with the image on the side holding the top fold, and thought it was perfect to go for my image. Unfortunately can't remember where I saw it so as to give credit.

The gorgeous main sentiment 'YOU are so sweet' is from the All About You stamp set from the All That Scraps store. .. which lucky me had won some time ago. There are twelve different sentiments in the set which all go with the word YOU, love it :)

Our weekly sponsor this week is 
Bunny Zoe who are offering one lucky winner a 10 Gift Certificate
gif maker

and our monthly sponsor is 
Prairie Fairy who is offering the winner 5 digis from the store

Football Fan

Lots of male themed challenges around at the moment, which made me realise I still haven't started my Father's Day cards! This one I did for my FIL, and as you might have guessed he is football crazy. He doesn't look exactly like the guy on my stamp he he :)  in fact he only wears glasses to read, is quite a bit thinner and got some hair as well ..... very different you must be saying, but my son liked this image and it is so funny, so I decided to go for this one. Hope he likes it!

The stamp that I used is Maurice from Pollycraft, and was one of the freebies in the store. I coloured him with my promarkers, and since he likes UK football, went for the red white blue colours. Stars done with my Die Namics die, sentiment computer generated and my lovely MollyBloom flag banner stamp, a magazine freebie woo hoo I love this stamp so much!

Birthday Wishes

Hi, I'm back .... thought I couldn't let today go by without posting an update about my day! Yay it was fantastic, really enjoyed it. So we didn't rehearse on how to walk like a zombie, but how to scream and run away from zombies in one big group ha ha it was so exciting and fun, loved every minute of it... really can't wait for the actual filming now! 

I got a card now as well, can't have a post without a card he he :)

This is a card which I made today with one of the lovely stamps that I won from Debby last time. A very quickie one, but I wanted to have a play with the stamp and my new English rose die, which I have only used once so far.. but getting used to the rolling now. 
Birthday Wishes stamp is from Crafty Sentiments, border and leaf punches are MS, Marianne leaf die, stamp coloured with my promarkers and some digi papers, not sure from where unfortunately, sorry ....must really get me a new ink cartridge now!

Hello good morning. This is a scheduled post today and if you read my yesterday's post, you will know that today I am not at the office but rehearsing ......... woo hooo so very exciting :)

Anyway, I have my Crafty Sentiments DT Card today and the theme this week is SPARKLE! I am not one to like to sparkle my cards unfortunately so again I had a little struggle he he .. You can't see the sparkle here..

but you can see it here... To make my card sparkle I used some Perfect Pearls Mists spray which I had bought and never used. Today I had to use it and aaah it's all so sparkly now ... still unsure if I like the sparkle or not.. but I took this photo in the sun now.

The stamp that I used for my card today is Primrose Sweet Cookies, and is one of the new released stamps this month. I coloured her with my promarkers and then cut around her and popped her up on foam. Papers were a magazine free gift, beautiful pins from Karen and rest from my stash.

This week we are sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs

Two Birthday Cards and Fabulous NEWS

So I have two cards today ... and some news, but first my cards...and lucky me got both the digis for free.

For this card I got the stamp after Kellie, from Tickled Pink Stamps sent out an email this week to all her customers and offered a free digi to the first 50 who answered... woo hoo I was one of the girls who got the free digi and I chose this darling Birthday Cherrie stamp.

I coloured Cherrie with my promarkers, paper was a free gift in a magazine, sentiment from Hero Arts stamp set, Card Candy and flowers with my CREAlies die cut.

And now I have a boy's birthday card. Last week or so I was one of the girls picked for the Top 3 at the CardmadFairy Challenge.. well lucky me again, I didn't know, but I had won a digi as well :)) I didn't take much to decide as when I saw this lovely stamp, Zac, I immediately thought of my youngest son Kevin, who, upon his request, is very happily learning the guitar. 

The fantastic papers that I used to do my card today were freebie ones from Bearly-Mine and I did the stars with my Die-Namics stars die...

... using some lovely shiny card which I had forgotten I had.

Quite a simple card, but I am sure he will like it. ... hoping that he will still be playing the guitar in October, that's when his birthday is ha ha am I finally not getting good preparing my cards SO EARLY :)

This is the sketch that I followed to do my card today

And now MY NEWS ...... my exciting news ....  Remember me some time ago saying that I went to apply to be an Extra in Brad Pitt's newest film World War Z?  WELL ....... I GOT CHOSEN .. woo hooo hooo hooo squeal ....... I couldn't contain my excitement when I got the telephone call today and even now I still can't keep quiet with the excitement. I will be going for rehearsals tomorrow and then on Monday for the costume fitting!!! First time for me doing this, so I am really looking forward and we get paid too...  So tomorrow morning, when you see my Crafty Sentiment DT Card going online, I will be ......... rehearsing........  I wonder if I will be rehearsing for how to walk like a zombie     : )
