Hello Everyone...
Such a watery sun in the sky here today and a bit chilly..but I'm sure Spring is right around the corner....after we have had the late frosts...the sudden downpours...the winds and a few more chilly days..always the optimist..lol..

Welcome to Delightful Thursdays ..
 
This is when the DT show case some of the fabulous images Wendy has over at the shop...

Today I'm sharing a card with the cutest little Ballerina...Balllerina Bobbi



I have made Bobbi her own little stage with curtains and bows...



Bobbi's skin..hair and bodice coloured with Faber Castell pencils...her tutu..bow..and dancing slippers with a copic B32...

Then she was fussy cut out and placed centre stage..


The pretty floral papers from Rosies Studio and the craft card for the rest of the scene from my stash.[such a shame as the pink card stock looks muddy]..

Added little gems along the front for stage lights and woodgrain papers for the floor.

And aren't watermarks great for hiding boo boo's...lol..gotta love that.

So there we go...another Thursday and another week nearly gone..

Thank so much for stopping by and all the wonderful comments you leave.

GET WELL SOON!


Hello Everyone...

There was a super sweet freebie from Crissy Armstrong over at Whimsey Stamps on Friday...did you get it?...if you didn't you can pick him up for only $1.50...so cute.



There is is..."Scarecrow"...

Sorry the colours are a bit wishy washy...too much sun and couldn't fix it without it looking grainy and dirty...



All coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and a few copics.

The papers from "Rosies Studio - Basics"...added a marianne fence and little bird...



Sunshine clouds with DP papers and  a scrap of mesh and a raffia bow...

And seeing as he was 'Hanging around"...I turned him into a get well card..

Sentiment computer generated "Hang in there" - "Get well soon".

So there we go...off to boy sit tonight, so popping this up on schedule..

Thanks ever so much for stopping by..

See you tomorrow..

PLAY THAT DRUM LENNY


Hello Everyone...

Monday today for me...and half way through the day...but I have the afternoon off so going to see my Dad and maybe a spot of crafting later on.

Have a card to share using a fabulous cute image from Stampfairy ..and turned it into a Christmas card..very versatile stamps these cuties are..



There's Lenny Music  all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils..and made this card into a Christmas card.




I did use copics for his drum and a gold gel pen...the snowflakes are Magnolia and a punch one too...






A Marianne tree die and papers from Couture Creations - "Vintage Christmas"

Now those swans music notes are a punch from somewhere...and when I first glued these in place I thought "Great"..perfect punch...that is until my G/son came in and asked me why I glued black swans on my card..talk about being shot down in flames..
But trust me...they are music notes!!

So there we go...another day almost over...blossoms on all the trees now and strange wet, dry, hot, cold weather..but that is Spring for you..

Hope your week goes well....hopefully see you tomorrow...

Thanks so much for stopping by and a big welcome to my new followers...

Luv CHRISSYxx

DELIGHTFUL THURSDAY DT



Hello  Everyone...

Well, well, well...sitting here eating my pixie caramel [not sick of them after all]...and watching the 11th re-run of "Friends"and my mind snapped into gear...I HAVE NOT POSTED MY POST!!

So welcome to Delightful Thursday and my DT card for Digital Delights 

This week I chose this puppy to play with, and he is a delight..

Meet Speckles ....



This little dog is too cute and so much fun to colour...

Lots of "Marianne Creatables trees" and a big spotty moon peeking through the forest. using scraps..
Papers are from "Rosies Studio - Basics"

Then the Marianne fences to stop this wee fellow from wandering off...although someone has left the gate open..again!!..





I coloured Speckles with Faber Castell pencils...glittered the heart on his collar and glossy accents on his eyes..added some dog bones buttons from my stash....




And the side view..

The emphasis on the "Again"..is this card has gone to a young boy who was forever leaving the gate open...his dog wandered off and it took 3 days to find him...fortunately a nice couple had him [and were going to keep him mind you..] and after a bit of..ummm..choice words from Dad the dog was returned to the boy..

Mum and Dad have done there own sentiment for inside the card...a list of rules!

So all's well that ends well...
