Can't upload my pics :(

My pics won't upload now. So disappointed. I was just finding my way around the blog and now it won't upload :(  :(    Am uploading stuff on docrafts and splitcoast stampers galleries to enter challenges, but really sad I can't put them on here.

Gorjuss Girls Challenge

I have been taking part in the Gorjuss Girl Challenges in the Docrafts website. Annette is hosting the challenge this time and it is called "Somewhere over the rainbow", to feature a Gorjuss Girl as Dorothy with red shoes, and a yellow brick road.
Am almost finished my Sugar Bowl challenge, and looking forward to Annettes!
Thank you everyone fromDocrafts and Splitcoast Stampers who left comments, it is really encouraging, as I have just started the blog and am still finding my way around.
Hugs! x

I'm playing with Sugar Nellie

I think I might play in the sugar bowl this week. Quite a challenging sketch (for me). Will let you know how I get on!

Note: added pic below on 13 June 2010 (long time after the challenge) as I couldn't get stuff to upload on the day. But just to prove I completed's my card:

P.S. I used string to make the little blue flower!

Kate Knight Papers!

Have been having lots of fun with some free papers I got with a Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine the other day. They are from a new (? new to me anyways) designer Kate Knight who produces some gorgeous floral creations.
Here is one of the cards I have made for a friend who is having triplets. This is also my card for Loretta's Challenge on the Docrafts website, but I can't get it uploaded on there at the moment for some reason. :(

I love love love the little lovebirds she has put in the top right of the paper, and actually worked my card design around those, as they were too sweet to hide, I had to alter the layout a little! (hope that's ok, Loretta)
I stamped the baby bundle image another two times, and attached them to the stork. The sentiment is from Stampin Up, and I inked up the edges of the square backing card to tone in with the fabbydoo paper!

This anniversary card is also for a docrafts challenge, Sunday Stampers, which involved stamping my own background paper (need to work some on my technique for this!) and then using a suitable stamped image to go with the sentiment. I  used some of Kate's deep pink floral paper and mounted stamped butterflies from Ippity and some candy brads from Craftwork Cards. The sentiment is from one of my favourite sets by Susan Branch - I adore her work, and the burgundy ribbon was rescued from an empty chocolate box.

This next card was made for the Gorjuss Girls challenge on Docrafts, the greeny blues backing paper is Papermania's Rose Garden, and the delicate blue that my Gorjuss Girl floats on is another of Kate Knight's fabby creations. I added some sparkle to make it look like fairy dust!

That's all I have for today! x

Happy New Blog Day :)

Have jumped into the world of grown up blog today! I started a blog on the Docrafts website a few months ago, and have enjoyed it so I am hoping to show off some of my card creations here.

The reason I have named it Sweetieshop Papers, is because when I came back to crafting sometime last year , I found so many new delightful and scrummy products, tools and general stash, that I felt just like a child in a sweetieshop, gazing round in wonder at all the goodies, wanting to try ALL of them, but eventually deciding on a few things, and taking them home to enjoy.........always mindful that I can go back another day and choose a totally different "sweetie", try something new, or take home an old favourite again!

I hope you will enjoy my journey as I blog along the way. Please come back and visit often :)
