Opps missed a day !

Don't know how that happened I'm sure ! lol... but forgot to put a card on here yesterday doh.... put it down to senility :)...
Well last chance to have a crack for the 6 freebie stamps over at Pink Gem, as it closes tomorrow, also the call for a GDTM.. I have not put a sentiment on this one as yet, as want to keep it to one side for now.. but have left a little spot for one :).. probably not the best thing to do if you trying to get on a DT.. lol. I love colouring up this little stamp, as once again, its just so easy to colour.. reminds me of Ruby in her new red coat. :).
Have managed to dig out an old xmas stamp too, that I never quite got around to doing much with last year, but, made a quick and simple card to show you tomorrow (providing I dont forget again lol)... I do have a lot on my mind at min, so putting it down to that a bit... hehe.. excuses excuses. ! I all for quick and simple, for Christmas cards, as... as ever, I didnt really start them early enough.. pure laziness on my part and was having so much fun with all the new other stamps I have purchased of late, plus all the lovely images I have aquired from DIC, just didnt get around to dragging out the xmas box... yes ... box... I dont actually have much in the way of Xmas stuff... was quite surprised myself, seeing as I got a whole room packed to the rafters of everything else. !! ... good excuse for a spendies LOL... I have bought a few Cuddly Buddly stamps, but... as ever... there are a lot more on my wish list ! ..
As for my poor Robo... he still hasnt seen the light of day... so much for having all those lessons whilst in Spain... at this rate I will have forgotten all I learnt... oh well, good excuse to have to go back again .. LOL...
Right onward and upward... colouring to be done and dog to be walked.. in that order :)... catch you all tomorrow, and hope you all have a fabby day .. hugs x

Challenge Card for DIC

Its that time of the week again.... our Monday Challenge over at DigitalInk...
This is the card I made, with an image from Jules Junk, that can be found over in the Best little shoppe in Town.. :), I think this little snowman is just adorable, and once I had coloured his scarf and hat.... I just had to use the new SU papers I just bought, a computer generated sentiment, a bit of sparkle and glitter, and the other requirements needed for the challenge.

Make sure you check out the other DT's blogs and cards,(in the sidebar) cos the girls have done good again this week (yes I get a sneeky peep at them.. hehe)... and they really have come up with some super fabby cards. Well done girls.
So the challenge this week is.... use glitter, fabric, button/s and a bow... yes our Boni really does like to challenge us !!!! lol... but with Xmas cards being made by so many now, adding that lot on a card won' t be difficult... specially the glitter lol...
A brill bit of news too.... who fancies a free digi stamp each month???? well I don't suppose many of you will say no..... so... take a look at this .... and well.... you know what to do. !!!!!

Right I best get myself motivated and move some boxes before the electrician turns up.. or he wont be too pleased when he cant access certain parts of the house !!!! ooh and I think a wardrobe might need to be emptied and moved too... so its still all go here..

Hope you all have a fabby week.... a nd we look forward to loads of enteries into the challenge... get those thinking caps on people and get crafting...:)

Oh by the way.... once again I am afraid I am having to post this a few hours early, due to the fact the scheduled post is NOT working again !!!! grrrrrr... (as just tried that).... and secondly... I will be without electric in the next half hour for probably a lot of today... so bear with me folks... and check out the other girls later today, as.... I am about 5 hours in front of them!!!!
hugs x

It is a free image by Inger, please drop by her blog and if take it, remember to thank her, and also to show her your makes... so kind of her to give this away...
Yes, usual copics.... although I am seriously thinking I might get the water colours out today, for a change... although I get the feeling I might find them a bit wishy washy now. :), we shall see.
I cuttle bugged the top half of card with the leaf folder, turned it around and done the bottom half with the swiss dots, added a piece of silk ribbon and tied... stamped sentiment and... one card done.. sounds easy when you put it like that doesnt it lol. (so how come it took forever??) lol

New DIC Challenge

Morning everyone... got a fabby challenge this week over at Digi Ink Challenge. This week it is... 'Anything but a card'... I had to use my braincell for this one... lol.. but once I had the idea... it was all systems go... I have made a little bag for Ruby... from one sheet of 12 x 12 scrap book paper.... which I then reinforced with some card stock. Have used a Sewn Together image,called Halen,(which can be found in the best little digi Shoppe in town), and placed on Nesties... added some prima flowers... and hey presto... one cute little girly bag (trouble is mummy (Stacy) now wants me to make her a Halloween bag for her treats lol)...
So gals... get your thinking caps on and we would love to see what you come up with for this one... just remember its anything BUT a card. You have until next Sunday evening to get all your lovely creations in... which the DT cannot wait to go and look at.... so good luck to all.... have fun with this one, Im sure you will...

I am having to post this a bit early I am afraid... as it not 8am EST, but my electrician is here chomping at the bit, to turn all the power off.... so... work must commence... hope to be back asap.
have a great day... hugs x

Guess who FINALLY got a WOJ stamp :)

Well two actually lol... but only stamped up this one as yet... although the card is very simple for me... I didnt want to overface the image, (I am sure that will come next time round thou lol)...

Yep you guessed, copics, some glitter card and a few bits from stash... and im loving that crushed glass... :)
I spose it might have been an idea to see if there were any challenges going I could have taken part in BEFORE I made the card... lol.. however...

A New DIC challenge.

Good morning all... the start of a whole new week...:)... and a new challenge is (will be... in a few hours time, 8am EST).. set at DIC. (Digital Ink Challenge Blog) .This week it is a sketch.. ohhh I love sketches... so really enjoyed this one.
I have used an image from Judy at M&M's, called Aunt Venie... from the new Body Tots series, which can be found at the DIC Shoppe, they are fun, and there are some brill cowboys and Injuns there to 'play' with too, I think these are just something different, which is always great to find.
I have used copics (surprise surprise LOL), to colour her with, typed a sentiment for the front, added my usual flowers :) bit of ribbon from stash.. and used a Martha Stewart punch to make a scalloped border. I think the papers are from K & Co... although please dont quote me on that lol.. you know I useless when it comes to my papers. The trouble is... I buy them from variouis places, then as soon as got them, I put them in colour folders, hence never remember what the make is.
So, gals.... we over at DIC h ope that you will be joining in the fun this week and take part... as we always love to see what you can come up with. There will be a fabby image giveaway to the winner.. so what you waiting for.. ? Have fun and come join in.

couldn't resist........................

Had my granddaughter over to stay tonight... and I couldn't resist taking these photo's and showing you.
The face of an angel? .. well yeah, when she asleep lol
this is Ruby Tyler with William and Piggy.. looking like every inch of a pure delight and angelic in every way.. oh if only you knew lol.
then a couple of hours later... i snuck up again, (basically to see where Xev dog was, as if I didnt know)... and there she was taking good care of bab. Xev is not known for her tolerance of kids.. nor am I come to that.. hehe... and there were 4 doors/room open for her, one with big double bed all to herself if chose.. and normally she would have, trust me. !!!! i find dog hairs in all the wrong places ! lol. but, when Roo is here.. this is where you will find her.. !!! keeping an eye and ear open., !
In a few weeks time, apparently, Roo is taking Xev into a dog show, as child handler lol.. SHE/Roo is only 2 and a half, but this dog.. is brilliant with her... (well the last few months has been) so, we will see what happens, I will take piccies for you all, and if you see the back end of a pair of shoes, it will be Rubys lol... but Xev seems to dote on her and keeps her safe.... a dog in a million (and a granddaughter) xxxxxxxxx

Autumn/Fall card - D-IC

Morning peeps... oooh I've been sooo excited to show you this card, talk about wanting the days to go quickly so I could add it to my blog...
We have a new challenge over at Digi Ink Co... this week it is a theme challenge, an Autumn/Fall card using one of the Stamping Dragon Designs, which can be purchased at the shoppe, and this is what I come up with. It is quite different for me... (must be having a week of it lol)... defo will be needing to take a chill pill or something, all these changes in my card making.. hehe. But I th oroughly enjoyed making this one.
I bought a little leaf stamp at Ally Pally in readiness for this card, as had the idea to do a background with it, which I used clear ink pad and chalks. then copic'd the leaves and decoupaged th em (not sure if that shows in piccy). coloured up the natural buttons and ribbon with copics too... wonderful little pens they are... (can you tell I love em) :).
So what you all waitin gfor? you going to join us this week at Digi?? I do hope so, as we love to see your creations with 'our' images.
Have a good day.. and happy crafting x
ps you might have to wait a couple of hours before the other girls add theirs, from across the pond) xx

pps... you really must go and look at the other DTM's cards .. (links in sidebar)... they really are awesome... way to go girls xx

I just adore this image and have, what I class as, rough copic'd it, in places... I didn't want some areas totally blended so left them as was, and also some places totally devoid of any colour... to me, its what the image called for .. (not sure if that makes sense to anyone else, other than me lol)..

I am also going to enter this into the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge... as the theme is Celebration... well you cant get much better than Christmas can you. :)...

been playing with glitter glass again, or what ever its called... lol.. made up the tags myself to hang from the ribbon !!!! hehee guess who didnt measure before stuck on ribbon.. hence coming out from under the pointsettia now lol... well.. since when do all cards end up, the way they intended in the first place? (mine hardly ever do thats for sure) lol... right on that note... time for a cuppa or a glass of wine, as after all it is Sunday :) and best go tidy up the mess I made in craft room ... enjoy the rest of your day... xx oh as for the backing paper.... as per usual.. not a blooming clue LOL (oh and did you notice only ONE backing paper too... !!!!, thats quite worrying for me lol)
