Gorgeous gal whos not !.. shes an Anya LOL

Had this image copic'd up for agggggesss.. and just not got around to doing anything with her.. even deco'd basket and hair... (might do a bit more of that in future). :) Had trouble finding the right papers to match.... I really must get into the habit of picking the papers first, then colouring in the image accordingly. ! .. (she says !) lol... Used crused glass glitter on the main flower, papers from stash, think one might be K & Co... lol... I am totally useless with knowing the names of my stuff... i buy it and 'file' it... so who made it doesnt come into the equasion lol..
Spent a lot of time today making up a challenge card, ready to show you tomorrow... only to realise I cant do it yet lol... so you will have to wait until Monday for that one... Its different !!!! lol
right so back to my craft room again to get a card up and going for you to have a looksee tomorrow .... Have a good evening all....

Hippy Chick

Afternoon all... sorry I'm a bit late in posting this weeks fabby challenge from Digi Ink Co.. But... you know me... always late for everything :).
I am just LOVING being part of 'Boni and Judy's' Team, and all the fabulous designs I get to play with, (plus such wonderful feed back on my creations,.. thanks girls.) But.. with designs like this... how can anyone go wrong?... with my increasing American lingo, coming on a treat LOL... these digi images are just plain AWESOME ...
So onto this weeks challenge.... its a color one (opps American spelling too lol)... Now... Im slightly colour blind, Boni wears bi focals, some of the rest of the DT's computers obviously showing up different... so... rofl... this has been a blast trying to get the same colours going on, on our cards.. so... if they are all looking slightly different in tone or hue.. thats the reason. so just get them as near as you can... and we can't wait to see what you come up with this week... be nice to see lots of fabby enteries as us DT's love to view your wonderful creations.

The Rules are.... any design, any sketch/map, use the colours... burgandy, mint/aqua and navy/dark blue.. (this is how I see the colours rofl, so you can all blame me if colour wrong :))
Take your entry over to our challenge blog... addy link above.... and use Mr. Linky. Hope that answers all questions (Pam !! rofl)

We have used an image from Stitchy Stamps, (which can be found in the Shoppe) called Hippy Chick, we just all love her.. the prize this week for the winning card is.... Honey, by BearyDust Designs. (yep told you lot to keep an eye open this week for some news on Honey !!!)... so.. off you go girls and get creating.. :) x
For my card, I have coloured the image with copics, and as usual, forgot to write down the numbers lol.. opps again... and as for what backing papers I used... not a clue, as it from my huge stash mountain bit boxes.. made the tag myself, added some funky fibre (well hippy and funky just go together don't they?) some prima flowers and brads from stash.

Now for a bit of news.... we, at Digi Ink, are having a blog hop on 2nd October , which will run through until the 8th October, we HOPe you can join us and play along, as there will be prizes to be had !!.... so... mark this on your calenders, diaries or whatever, but just be there and have some fun..

I'm back - and the new Christmas LaPashe sheets

Im back from my jaunt... had fabby time with Lynn and hubby Mike, met up with lots of lovely people... just a shame weather not so brill, but, just meant had to spend hours and hours in the craft room, learning how to use Wills lol.... got home, to power cuts ... tried three times to print out the Robo manual.... will try again later.

Got stuck straight into the new Christmas sheets from LaPashe. All the new ones have a religious theme, so if you would like to pop over to Jak, Karen and Toni's blogs, you can see what they have been up to with them.. My fav image and backing sheet is the Angel Gabriel.. which I will have to show you tomorrow,... as need new batteries in camera. typical ah !!! lol... til then here is my take on the Holy Bible decoupage. I reckoned the Vicar/Priest would be stood at the Altar reading to his congregation... therefore 'we' would see the outside of the Bible. Either way round, it looks fabby. (sorry about awful photography on the inside of the card. )

sorry this is short and sweet... but still million and one things to do... and Roo sitting at mo as well... lost a dog,(Stacy taken 3 or them out for walk), but gained a granddaughter lol... not sure who got the better deal here, me or Stacy lol...

Will be back in full flow asap....

Gorjuss in Blue

A bit of watercolouring and a bit of copics on this one, I wasnt happy with the way the hair was in water colour, so went over in copics.. getting too used to the bolder look I think. :) although I did manage to achieve the look I wanted with the dress.
Got something a little different to show you tomorrow.. just debating whether to add a sentiment to it or not...
Off to do some decorating today, as daughter is due back and I not done anything down the house this week... ohhh will I be in heap big trouble... so best I go down and do something for her.. Have been waiting on the plasterer to finish thou.. in my defence lol...
As for the update on the wildlife here..... plug in music makers, cos Im sure thats what it is... (sposed to be hi pitched noise to deter mice)... is NO T working... infact I think they like it, so much so, they bringing friends in now for a party !!!! I am NOT happy... they will soon be totally evicted when have kitchen ripped out (if it ever happens)... and all holes will be filled and no hiding places ie under stairs cupboards and such, cos I having thou ripped out too. Its a bit of an ongoing saga with this kitchen.... one day she says, one day... it will happen. I thought there was a recession and builders etc all looking for work !!!!! obviously cant be that bad cos I having probs getting quotes, never mind having the work done. glad I off to Spain next week... see how real people live in real houses, with proper kitchens and NO MICE !!! lol..
