Christmas Card

Good Afternoon all, It’s very windy and dusty here today so that’s an excuse not to do the dusting, so I made a Christmas card for a change, I was going to post it this morning but blogger has been playing up with me again agggg.

I used an image from Bugaboo and coloured him with Copic  and a bit of glitter, the papers are Basic Grey. 

The snowflakes are made with an M/S punch and I cut all the little snowflakes to make them separate, then covered them all in Christmas glitter and added a Kaban bling piece to the centre, finishing off with a nice red bow, plain but I like it.

I have entered the following challenges.

Bugaboo – Red, White and Blue

Christmas Stamping – Photo Inspiration

Paper Play Time – Red, White and Blue

Squigglyfly – Red, White and Blue

I also wanted to tell you about an up and coming event that is happening at Bugaboo, Christmas in July including blog hop, Events, Prizes and lots of Surprises!

I cannot wait for the fun to begin as I love Bugaboo images.

Thanks for popping by my place and I shall see you all later, have a great day all.

Birthday Card

Good Morning ladies
I have not been able to post on blogger for the past few days, is anyone else having the same problem? Or is it just a clitch on my page?

Anyway I am here now and today I have a card to show you I made for a friends daughter‘s Birthday.

The image is from Kathy at Stamps Art Design and called Raggedy Girl, you can find all Kathy’s images at the Whimsy Store, she’s so cute and I loved colouring her up.

Yesterday I decided to clear my craft room up and have a sort out and move things around, now I cannot find a darn thing lol, wish I have never started.

I bought a new tag die and was really looking forward to using it, I remember putting it on my desk and it has never been seen since, it’s either in the bin when I swept the rubbish off my desk and put the bag outside or it’s in such a safe place it will never be seen again untill I have another clear out aggggg, if you see a woman going through the rubbish it’s not a bag lady it’s me hehehehe.

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 post for today is a new card, I could not show you before as we had to wait for the new magazine that is at the Whimsy Store to go live, ok I am a bit late with this but better late than never I say.

Busy Busy

Hi Everyone, I hope you’re all having a good day, it’s very hot and humid here.

Onto my card for today and this is a commission card that is going to the UK for a friends hubby, I have not put the sentiment onto it as I could not remember what she said ekkkkk so I did two for her, one with Happy Birthday hubby and one with his name on, so she can take her pick.

By request is a Bicardi bottle and chocolate image, that I ran through my Xron to make them into stickers then added to the card, so we can guess what he likes lol, I hope she likes the card!

I have used a Bugaboo image coloured with Copic and Sakura glitter pens also using Basic Grey papers which have been distressed with Tim Holtz ink, finishing with a bit of glitz in the corners.

I have entered it into the following challenges

Catch the Bug- It’s a Man’s World

One Stop Craft - Stickers

Kaboodle Doodle - Food Drink

Sisterhood of Crafters – Male Theme

I have just about got the house sorted now and all the dreaded ironing done. I love holidays and coming back home but I hate the rest that goes with it lol.

I did manage to get some images coloured and some pieces of jewellery  made (which I shall show you later when I get my jewellery page up and running) for now I have a card to show you that  I made this morning ( I should have been doing housework hehehe) 

I used Bo Bunny papers the pink swirl paper and Basic Grey purple with flowers and one of my favourite images which I coloured with Copic, flowers are Wild Orchid and the lace is new which I purchased in Cyprus butterfly, ribbon and pearls from my stash.
