40 days to go

40 days. Not going to lie, the excitement/panic has truly set in!! The last couple of nights I haven't been able to sleep as my head has been buzzing with all the things i need to do. I write them down, and have actually been doing them! That makes a change. I've sussed out how to add a page to my blog, so I'll be able to announce the Design Team and they will have a separate area for their work! How exciting.

Today I decided to give myself a Flashback Friday. I like doing this, and seeing what stuff I've done in the past.

The card I want to share is one I made using the first set of stamps I brought out, along with a cd, with Debbi Moore. I was really chuft with this range - and although they were on C&c, they never actually put me on to guest them, or even made a big deal about them. Quite disappointing, but there you go. 


For this card I used my sentiment stamp, and then masked it off, so when I over stamped my trees, they look as though they are sitting behind my sentiment. 



I love that sentiment as well. I'm a big fan of good words :)

Now, it's challenge time again. I want someone to pick 3 things for me to work with. It might be an egg box, string and a Pom Pom. Please don't choose that!! That would be horrendous. Anyway, I'll pick someone's challenge at random - and the piece of work I complete will be won by the person who set the challenge. I like this game, and look forward to seeing what you come up with....go

I haven't seen your stamps before but they are lovely, you're a very talented lady! My challenge is things I have and dont know what to do with them, little pegs with chalk hearts on them, neon tags and a hessian embossing folder. I don't think I'd use them together but it's supposed to be a challenge right? Best of luck with whatever you choose x

My Challenge would be paper clay ( think it is Martha Stewart I have three lots )

Happy crafting

KathMF said...

Love the stamps Leonie, and like others never saw them on C&C.
For the challenge....corrugated brown cardboard, lace and buttons xx

Chrissie Partridge said...

How about glitter, paint and a piece of ribbon xx

Jackie Whiteman said...

gilding flakes, acetate and ribbon - things I have lots of but, don't use much so need inspiration and who better to do it!!

I have been a C&C member for seven years and have never seen your stamp or CD - look forward to seeing your designs soon xx

anne said...

Glitter, string and buttons.

Looking forward to seeing you back on our screens soon

Emma Cronin said...

Sweetie wrappers, Buttons, and Bottle Caps (Plastic or the funky metal ones). Loving watching all the things you are creating Leonie! Much love!

karenlotty said...

I regularly watch C&C although I'm changing tact now as I don't like how they favour a certain person's products all of the time and have never seen your stamps either. They look gorgeous, and look forward to seeing them on your next adventure.
3 things ummm! Something similar to somebody else's comment. SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BLUE.
PS I like quotes/sentiments too

Ann White said...

I keep trying

Ann White said...

yayyy I am in :) but I have to log in each time....

Ann White said...

Will you resurrecting your little birdie designs ?

hollyberry said...

I have your CD but not the stamps and I do remember them being on c&c on a Debbi Moore show. Felt that it was wrong you didn't get to guest with them,Nigel did with his CDs and Dawn with her range.
Oh well things are going too change I hope with your new range(can't wait to see it) and your new home where ever that might be:)
Love this card and I think words are so important on a card. It is great to have something other than Happy Birthday,not that that isn't useful!
Challenge,well I'm changing mine as someone else has already picked the three I was going to so- parchment,pens and gilkding flakes.
Have fun whatever you choose.

Kitty Davies said...

Hi Leonie.
Thank you. I only remember your bird stamps.
I really wish I never renewed my membership, never mind oneday they may have something I need. Your card is so pretty, thank you. Sticky tape glitter and and some buttons.
have fun Take care Kitty.

Patricia Youdell said...

Hi Leonie

Beautiful card, I didn't know you have your own range of stamps and look forward to seeing you, and them in 40+ days!
My three things are:
A plastic bottle
Double sided sticky tape
Glitter glue
Take care
Pat x

Wendy Allen said...

Seashells,string and sandpaper.Good luck.x

lilian said...


Hi Leonie, I never saw your stamps either, wish I had as the trees are fab, will we be able to get them when you appear "somewhere " on our screens in 40 days? not long now.
My three things : parchment or vellum , versa mark pad and embossing powder (that's one) and a flower die, this purely because whenever I try these , the embossing always flakes off, sorry if that's selfish of me.
Best Wishes Lilian in Cornwall

Donna Golby said...

My challenge items would be milk carton, word confetti and newspaper.

Great card

Counting down with you

Donna

jac777 said...

Great card & I remember your tree stamp in your online shop, but it sold out before I could order it :( I actually 'emailed' to ask if you would be re-doing it, so hope you will asap :)

My 3 things are:
Driftwood (or twigs from your garden), an emb folder & newsprint :)

Myra said...

Hello Leonie,
Trouble with being late like yours truly here is that other people pick your products!!
However never say die! What about a jam jar , wire and beads!
Love today's card . Looking forward to seeing your new designs!

Chrissie Roberts said...

Hi Leonie. This is truly lovely :) I liked your stamps but only saw them in an advertisement :( I hope I manage to see your new products when you 'arrive' at your new home.

Whatever you choose to do I know it will be lovely

Hi, love how u have done the sentiment, a really good way of keeping the card flat but not looking flat! My choice of things are:
Wax paper
Dominoe
Rusty object.

jane walliss said...

Anne Chilvers said...

I have this CD, it's got some lovely designs and sentiments on it and it was a shame that you weren't included when it was aired. Love your creation x

Anne said...

I adore these trees Leonie and have not seen anything like them - I'd buy the stamp!
