Mo's Challenge No. 51 - Altered Item

Good morning all, and today brings a new challenge at Mo's DP2 Blog, and sadly my last week as Guest Designer.   I have had a fantastic time over there, and would like to thank all the girls for having me, (just wish I could have stayed longer) . I suppose all good things have to come to an end. :(

So onto this weeks challenge... we would like you to Alter something, If you need any inspiration, the DT have come up with some totally fabulous ideas and projects...
For my item, I chose a little lidded tin I had in my craft room, I think flowers came in it originally.  But it was such a lovely size I kept it, (as we do) :).  So glad I did, as it was perfect for this weeks challenge, as I always intended to do something with it, just never got around to it... until now.
I have chosen 'B ossy' who can be found HERE, another Mo image I had not got around to colouring up, I actually decoupaged her pinny too, I t hink this image is totally adorable, and a dream to colour.

Skin E11, E00, E000 R20
Dress and shoes RV 10, RV11, RV13 and Rv14
Socks C1 , C3
and just to let the side down, I cannot remember hair colour, sorry..(trust me not to do my normal red hair lol).
Papers, ribbon and butterfly border from stash, flowers made with retro punch,
I look forward to seeing all the different altered items that you girls will come up with. Well done Paola on another fantastic th eme.
Hope you all have a fabby day, and you will need to get your thinking caps on for this one :) xx hugs Jackie xx

Penny Challenge Blog - 39

A new challenge starts over at Pennys Challenge blog today, and the theme for the next two weeks is...
CIRCLES... you can interpret this anyway you wish...  As long as we see circles in some form on your card..
I have used an image from Di's Digi's, called Back in Ten, which can be found HERE.

I am afraid that this one slipped through the net, as I thought I was all upto speed before I went away, but.. somehow I missed this one, so had to do in a rush yesterday, so I have no idea what copics I used... or who the paper is by etc etc... so sorry...  will try harder :) ... lol.. (yes I know you heard it ALL before) hehe.

Will add a few of the cards that I made whilst away for the weekend, when I get around to organising myself a bit better....   went away to relax... come home more stressed than when I went...   7 and half hour journey, which should  have been nearer half that time.. did not do me any favours....  didnt fair much better getting there !! ....   Still, met up with loads of friends, had a fabby time, lots of laughs, and made loads of fabby cards... so not all bad.. :).
Will be back tomorrow with something a tad different !!!!!! .... :).  infact ... something VERY  different .
Have a good evening.. and 'see' you tomorrow xxx hugs J xx

Sketch and Stash No. 45

A good morning to all....
Today starts a new challenge over at Sketch and Stash, and this week is another fabby sketch.  I have rotated, and tweaked it a little.. but with good reason...  cos put something in wrong place,... lol and when went to move it... it not going anywhere... , so had to l eave as was.   Thats what happens when you in a rush.. !!! and so not have time to do it again sadly...

 My NEW stash (as thats all part of the challenge), is the new stamp, Daisy butterfly, which can be found HERE, at Whimsy Stamps. They are this week sponsering us, and will give the winner $15 voucher to spend in their store, how cool is that, they have some totally fabby images there...

Once again copics used, pearls from J.S, flowers from stash and made using the small retro punch, and some glamour dust on the wings, which I light coloured with copics underneath as well.
I do promise to try harder and start putting all used copics in a tub as I going, and try to remember to add them to the receipe.  Things should quieten down a little now, so hopefully I can be a little bit more organised, ok.... so ... just organised full stop lol....  Have a fabby day all... and get rummaging through all your new unopened stash, use something, tell us what you have used, and follow the sketch (hopefully a bit better than I did lol)...   Look forward to checking out all the wonderful cards you girlies make.
hugs Jackie x

Sketch and Stash DT challenge Card - 44

I start on the  DT at Sketch and Stash challenge  today, and I love the way this challenge works..... you have to follow a sketch... fabby.. :)... and for the second part you use either old and neglected stash or brand spanking new.  How easy is that !? ...

So... I have used a  neglected Kenny K  image. (can be bought from HERE)  As had her for quite a while and never used... and the sketch is brill, it can be flipped or rotated if you wish.  You have until 26th September to enter.... so get looking through your craft stash and see what you have not used for a long time... or maybe you have an unopened packet just sitting there waiting to be used..
Make sure you pop over to the other DT's blogs and check out what they have been creating.:)...

I look forward to catch up with you and seeing your fabby takes on the sketch, don't forget to add into your blog which bit of stash you have used.
Have a fab day... Im off to 'Mothers' !! so... thats me shattered before I start lol xxx hugs Jackie

The DT have done yet another fantastic array of cards, they never  cease to amaze me... We are so lucky this week to have Dena join us as Guest Designer, (I just love her work), so, pop over and leave some love for all the girls and we hope you get lots of inspiration from all their m akes this week.

I have used Kitty Katastrophe for my image, and she can be found HERE at the Shop.Copics used for colouring, flowers, papers and ribbon from stash, and the Cuttlebug Script Embossing folder. The sentiment ticket stamp is by Whimsey stamps.

Looking forward to seeing all your fabby work ....  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

oooh forgot to tell you all why I went awol for a day or two... was lucky enough to get some MUSE tickets for Wembley Stadium for Friday night... OMG they were totally awesome, but... one word of warning, if you THINK you might be scared of heights or suffer from Vertigo  DO NOT purchase tickets for the upper tier !!!!!!!!..... I can honestly say I have never been so terrified in my entire life.... and had to be physically escorted from seat.... and given new seats on ground level.... Medical advice !!!!! lol... over an hour to manage to prise my hands from seat and get m e to walk to exit... not nice.. However once in new seats.. thoroughly enjoyed the most amazing gig.... White Rabbits and Lily Allen, plus The Big Pink and Professer Green .... all fabby... but MUSE... OUT OF THIS WORLD  x

Mo's DP2 Challenge - 48 - Folds and Flowers

A brand new challenge starts today over at Mo's DP2 challenge blog, and I'm still sooo excited to be part of the team, as Guest Designer, playing with some of my most fav images. :)
Well this week the challenge is FOLDS and  FLOWERS...  so using super cute Fairy Kiki , who can be found HERE 
 Sorry about the poo photography...  As hard as I tried, I just couldn't get a good shot of this.  the 'boxes' are actually cut... so that the card can either lay flat, or corcatina up to a 6 x 6" for posting. (if you get my drift!) lol
As for the template, this was designed by my very clever and talented friend LYNN... thank you Lynn xx
The gingham paper was from my all time fav CD, Kanban.  Roses from Wild Orchid, sentiment computer generated.
Copics used for image... Skin  E11, E00, E000 and R20
Hat RV14, RV13, RV11 and RV10.   various G's used.. (a bit hit and miss on this) :) loads of glue and plenty of glamour dust ....   yep as helpful as ever on the recipe. ! LOL  ...

Look forward to popping over to your blogs to see your wonderful creations... I think this one will be very interesting with all the possibilities there are on the folds . !!! Well done Paola on a fabby challenge. ...
hugs J xx
