Happy Birthday Cloisonne Card - Michael Strong Stamp ' Cloisonné Flower '

I made this card a few weeks ago just playing with one of the gorgeous Michael Strong Stamp ' Cloisonné Flower ' , used Brilliance ink lightning black and these very fun metallic adhesive dots I sourced from Paperchase (I'm so happy they've opened in the new shopping centre down where I live). The Happy Birthday stamp is from The Angel Company and is a GWP ( Gift with purchase) that means I buy way too many stamps ! LOL

Fab's Big Christmas Challenge has its very own BLOG ! - Update on my Christmas Fat Art Page

After being quiet for a while, my Christmas Cards challenge is on hiatus until next January but it was so popular it needed it's own blog. So today is the big launch and you can still add your Xmas cards and all your Holidays papercrafting bit you've concocted.....share the spirit of Christmas, please. I'll put up a huge gallery with all your work during the year up to the 20th December.

Now I had many emails asking me about the back of the FAP so I'm so sorry Paper Follies chums but I've scanned the back it and need to show's too cute ! LOL I've used Stampin Up markers and tried to colour it so that it looks like he's got a proper coat....don't know if I've achieved the effect but added some glossy accents to the light bulbs.

Stamp is Rachelle Anne Miller from Secret Crafter and paper Bo Bunny. Sorry to spoil the suprise...

Christmas Fat Art Page for Paper Follies and Leonie Tagged Me

It has been so long since my last post.....I was going through one of my blue phases ! I started to feel better today and Leonie Tagging got me posting again.
I created six of these Fat Art Pages (the back is a surprise for my fellow Paper Follies swappers). I saw the lovely cards Amanda made on Making Cards magazine (I'm a subscriber) and she truly inspired me. Papers are Bo Bunny, the cabouchon faux gems - Frosted Adhesives Stones from QVC UK.

Leonie just surprised me with a lovely tagging: I have to list 7 random facts about myself ! I hope these facts are interesting and won't bore you to sleep !!!
1) I was a Sergeant in the Italian army for two years. Funnily enough I thoroughly enjoyed and wasn't missing home. I think I made the best of it.
2) I lived in three countries : Canada, Italy and the UK. Britain is what I call home though, after 18 years living in London.
3) I worked in a Rotisserie place during summer months in my teens. In Britain, I've done quite a few jobs mainly in retail : shops were in Oxford Street, Oxford Circus, Leicester Sq, Covent Garden and finally just behind Piccadilly Circus...yep I know central London like the back of my hand. Also I worked in a call centre where people could swap their time shares ( never again LOL ! ).
4) I love cooking but I will take shortcuts when I can like our Saint Delia ! I can cook Italian, French, Indian, Thai, Chinese and Moroccan cuisine. I can even make Sushi although I don't do it often to my neighbour disappointment.
5) After papercrafting my other passion is linguistics and foreign languages.
6) My first four years in the UK, I lived in a hostel that was run by Italian priests. Our accomodations were just next to the Church.
7) I'm addicted to Kool-Aid and Ice-Tea
Now my chosen Seven are:
