Just hangin' out!

Nope I haven't disappeared off the face of it...jut haven't been creating lately and have nothing to share!!
Although I did find this card I made with a Sugar Nellie image by Mary Hall.....once I had the image all coloured I felt something was what could it be?.....of course!!....couldn't have two wee lads out playing in trees and all spotlessly clean......oh yes, they look much better now with a few slaps of "dirt" all over their clothes and shoes!! lol bx

Just for fun!

I made this recently using one of Leanne Ellis's images....and some bits n bobs kindly sent to me by bloggin' buddies (thanks girlies)! The MME PP is lovely and shimmery...loved how this turned out!

I haven't been able to "play" for almost a week...I know I'm going to struggle now as it always takes me a while to get back in the "swing" of things! bx

Something Tweet for you...!

I think this little girl is so incredibly "innocent" and pretty...she has a "Cinderella" quality to her....she is a dream to colour...i used the Saturday Sketch No37 to make this creation....and love how it all turned out!

BTW: I came home tonight to a huge amount of bogus "comments" so I have to switch to using the comment moderation function....hope no-one else gets hit!! bx

Somebunny Loves You!

I got this lil cutie image recently from Sugar Nellie...suitable for many occasions methinks...i went ahead and inked "her" up today using Claudia's fabby sketch for Friday Sketchers (ummm...yeah, last tram again!!). Anyway, it was a nice "simple" easy sketch which I love, leaves you plenty of scope to play thanks Claudia, this one's a keeper!!

I found (yep, forgot I had it; in my weak "defence" this doesn't normally happen to me in my crafty life!!) a fun template I got in America last I used it to "doodle" a flourish on the top left hand corner...initially I doodled with my white Ranger's pen, but it didn't show through very well, so I went over with a sparkly my doodlin' makes this qualify for this weeks Spoon Full of Sugar "Doodle Doo" challenge.

I like how this one turned out...think the colours are a bit different for me...? bx

Oh Rats...I forgot!!

Love this new image I got from Whiff of Joy....couldn't wait to use her, so she was the choice for this weeks sketch at Whiff of Joy Challenge ...loved the sketch, loved the image, but I soooo struggled with this card...maybe it was the papers I chose...dunno...I just laboured over it so I left it a couple of times!! And finally...this is my finished result!! bx

Have an Ice Day!

The theme at Stamp Something this week is "Summer in the Winter" - well you couldn't get any more summery than this!! Another gorgeous Sugar Nellie image teamed with a little A Muse sentiment!

I made the card using the current sketch by A Spoon Full of Sugar - I really enjoyed working with this sketch and would use it again - so thanks girlies!!
Although it was not my intention to combine another challenge, today I realised this card also meets the theme at Cute Card Thursday which is "Metallica"....I had already picked this little cherry ear-ring out to add as an embellishment to match the cherry design on Summery Sue's top, and I also added this MM clip!! bx

I Love Moo!

The current theme at The Sugar Bowl is "Love and Romance" I suppose you're wondering why I didn't use a "sweet" little image with a heart, instead of Custard the cow....weeeeeell.....

...I have this Penny Black sentiment which matches Custard beautifully and wanted to use it!! So the play on words here makes this image so versatile!!
Recently Hero Arts were doing a feature on "pockets" on their blog which inspired me...if you look at Tiets gorgeous card you will see another hidden message, and, just before I uploaded this photo I saw this gorgeous card on Inge's it seems to be "trendy" just now!!
I wish you could see how twinkly and sparkly this gorgeous My Mind's Eye paper is...I just love it! bx

Just you and me!

Happy 1st of February everyone - is anyone else alarmed how fast time is whizzin' these days...? Mum reassures me that it's a sure sign I'm getting old - thanks Mum!!

Love is all around blogland this week....I used the Friday Sketchers sketch which is nice and "simple".....although looking at this card on screen now it's missing something; I think I might go back and add a swirly stamp on the top...hmmm, not sure!!

This card also fits the theme of Whiff of Joy and Cute Card Thursday - Valentines! I love these bittersweet papers from Basic Grey, just love the colours!
If you're quick go join in Irina's fun blog candy here...but you only have until 9pm PST today! bx
