Candles to show you today

Hi All
Today I have 2 candles to show you and it was Junie who inspired me to try my candles again, thank you Junie and for your great vidio you did too.

I was having trouble with the tissue paper and colouring the image, so this time I changed the tissue paper  I was using, to the kind you get in the shop what they wrap your clothes up in, the real fine soft stuff and it worked perfectly and shading the image was much easier with this paper.

The first one is done using a LOTV image coloured with Copic and Glitter.

The sceond one is done using a digi image which I printed onto the paper.

I decorated them and wrap them in celo bags that have tiny flowers printed on, cut them to fit and just adding ribbon to finish, I hope you like them.

I ahve entered some challenges and I do hope candles count

Stamp Something - Flowers

Cupcake Craft - Cake or Icecream

Thanks for popping by to see my creations I do appriciate it and have a great day all.

Two Cards Today

Hi All  
Tonight I have two cards to show you, the first is a commission card for a friend, she happened to see a card on my blog that she like and asked me to make one for her daughter as she is away at University in America and was missing her, I was delighted to do so.

I used a Meljen image from Whimsy and one of the new postage stamps saying For You and as she likes a lot on her card I used flowers, lace, ribbon, butterflies, pearls and a gold corner. I coloured the image with Pro Markers and Sakurs glitter pens and added a sentiment to finish.

Matching Inside

The second card is a simple get well card with a bit of bling and coloured with water coloured pencils, the image is from Bugaboo and I am going to enter it into their Catch the Bug challenge this week.

Meljen Digi Release at Whimsy and Grand Calibur Card

Hi All
Today we see new releases from Meljen Design and you can find these images at Whimsy Stamps

I used the image called Topsy Turvy Birthday Cake and coloured it with Pro Markers adding glitter and glossy accents to the candles, stripy bits and dots, inking all the papers with rose Tim Holtz Ink, oh forgot to say I cut the card shape with my grand calibre machine, love this machine and yummy die cuts. I found this antique lace down the souk and inked that with the same rose, finishing my card with pearls, my favourite corners and flowers.

Inside to match

I also made a box with matching image


Dutch Dare / Glitter Sparkle Bling

Cute Card Thursday / Shiny Happy Cards

ABC / Oldfashioned, image,lace, flowers etc

I might be away from my blog for a little while, as some of you may know I live in Bahrain and I gather some of you will have seen the news, my internet is getting slower by the hour and very hard to get onto blogs as there is so much content to download with the pictures, so if I do not visit you, you will know why.

At the moment my email is ok, a bit slow but I can still access it and respond, I will most likely not be able to access my blog by tomorrow, for at least a couple of days as we have been warned it might go down but I will be back with you as soon as I can.

That’s all for now and thank you for popping by my place again, it’s so good to see you and also read your comments, I do appreciate it. Have a good day all

 My other headaches and flashes are migraine, luckily I do not get them often, wow I sound like a right old moaner, ok enough of my ails as I call them, I should be thankful thast the rest of me is ok lol.

Thanks for popping by my place again I do appreciate your visits and shall be round to visit you, I have been a bit busy this week and have not been blogging at all, I have now caught up on my work so I can relax a bit this week.

Feel The Loveeeeeeee

This week there is so many love and Valentines challenges I thought I’d join in the fun too and created this card with a Mejen design image which you can find at Whimsy.

I coloured him with Pro Markers and added glitter to the heart, unfortunately it does not show on the picture. I raided my stash as I knew somewhere I had these stick on hearts, which took me an age to find, that reminds me I must do a Love box to keep everything together, a lot easier to find in the long run.
For the border at the bottom I used a EK Success heart punch adding hearts and bling, the flowers are Wild Orchid, the heart on the left is from my new Cricut hubby just bought me.

Love that machine and I always wanted one, so I sent hubby an email with a link to the shop and links to the cartridges I would like and put  a message at the top of the email!  Linda would love these, then waited for the seed to grow into a plant and wayhey the seed grew lol.

Ohh I digress now so back to the card, I placed larger hearts behind the image and distressed them.
I cannot show the inside I forgot to take the picture and the card has been sold agggg, see absent minded again.

I have entered the following challenges:

Cup Cake Craft – Seeing Red

Do It With Digi’s - Valentines

Stamp for the Weekend - St Valentines' Day

Secret Crafter - Valentines

Simon Says -  Love is in the Air

Stamptacular Sunday – Hearts Gone Wild

Sentimental  Sundays –Valentines with Sentiment

Creative Inspiration – Valentines Love

Do it with Digi’s – Valentines

I have not been blogging much this week because of my headaces which I wake up with in the mornings, the doctor wants me to go for a CT scan on Wedensday to see what is going on. The other headaces and flashes in my eyes, he thinks are migrains, luckly I do not get these very often, how is it when you get an appointment your ails go away lol, well for today, so I got in my craft room while the going was good :-)

Thank you for popping in to see me, I do apprciate your visits and all your comments, so from the post today I hope youir all feeling the Loveeeeee.

Hi everyone, I hope your all well and the weather is being kind to you, I am posting a creation I made yesterday it’s an ATC, now I do not make many of these but I do enjoy making them when I do.

The image is one I won over at Bugaboo, he’s so cute, I coloured him with Copic and Pro Markers then cut him out, I used Bo Bunny papers and ink the edges with Dew Drops, the sentiment is an old one from my scrapbook box.

I have not looked in this box for months and found about 200 sentiments, see hidden stash that you forget about lol plus lots of other things. The hearts and ribbon are from my stash and of course the flower is from Wild Orchid, I finished by adding a bit of bling.

I have entered the following challenges:

One Stop Crafts - ATC

Catch The Bug - ATC

Sister Hood of Crafters - Anything Goes

Creative Card Crew - Pink and Purple.... my favourite colours too

Karber -  Use Something Old .... Sentiment I used

I have not been crafting today as I woke with a rather bad head and this has been going on for a month or so, I see the docs tomorrow, I am also getting flashes in my eyes so I went to get my eyes done and only a little change there so I hope the doc can sort me out. I hate it when I cannot craft.
I was also a bit of an idiot yesterday, I made a card for a friend and by mistake took it to the shop to be sold, I realised as soon as I got back home and went straight back to the shop but it had been sold, how dumb is that, so I have to make another one now, hubby says I can now wear the dunces hat for a day (cheek).

Thanks for popping in to see me again and have a really good night all oh don’t forgot Whimsy Seek Peeks start this week.
