FIRE!! FIRE!!


Hello Everyone...

THE BIG CHILL...sweeping it's way through both Islands and talk about cold!!...I dont do heat very well.. and I like the Winter, but boy- oh -boy you do forget how cold July can get over here...lol.

We have the Winter bloomers out at 'My Ladies' house and devils of things to get dry..she is 96 and thinks this is the coldest Winter she has ever been through..[.she said that last year too]..and even says it in Autumn...but it is very cold.

I have a card to share today using the ever cute Barry from the Halloween 2 collection..
from Stampfairy

And here he is as a little  'Firebear'..



Such a fun image to colour...using Faber Castell pencils...his hat and fire hydrant with a red copic and shaded with a green pencil.



His cheeks are all rosy..probably from the heat and the papers are Authentique.."Endless and Fair Weather"..love these for boy cards.

The little buckets are off the net and fussy cut out with glossy accent drips on the side and seed beads with glossy accents for the water...coloured with Pencils again.



The side view...I used two stamps for the sentiments....this card went to a young man who has dreamed of being a fireman all his life and has just made the grade..both were wooden stamps...some little cheapies I've had for years...




Last side view....dont know why I've started doing two!.. but there you go..

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a peak and thanks so much for all the comments you leave..means so much..

Off to find some challenges...
Found some!

NEW RELEASE AND NEW CHALLENGE - LACY SUNSHINE



Hello Everyone...

Raining...raining...raining..today and cold!!...but I have noticed,even though this is the coldest month of the season,is that the mornings are slightly lighter at 6.00am...so that must mean we are starting the turn...then I can start to moan how hot I am..lol..

I'm here today to share a new release for Lacy Sunshine and a new challenge starting over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog  ...

I was so impressed with all the entries in our last challenge...all of them were just lovely...so many gorgeous under the sea Christmas cards and projects...thanks to all who played along....

This weeks challenge theme is "Flowers"...

And this is the cutie I was able to play with...she comes in three parts...the pot..the bamboo with leaves and of course the Pretty...

LUCKY BAMBOO...FLOWER POT PRETTIES


There she is...isn't she lovely...


She is coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and copics.

I printed the bamboo out 6 times and fussy cut all the leaves and bamboo stalks
and the gorgeous image!!...that's a lot of fussy cutting..

I embossed a Chinese or Japanese stamped image on the front of the pot and embossed it in gold..then coloured the pot  with R17 red copic...

The stamp spells out "Friendship"...but as I only used one half of the stamp this says either "Friend" or "Ship"...



The side view....the papers from Rosies studio "Regal Collection"...the butterfly from my stash..and lots of liquid pearls...



The other side..I cut a twig off my flowering and messy Camellia and glued on silk blossoms and added a thin gold bow.

And last but not least....this was the inspiration photo I found on the net on how to do my Bamboo....

And there you go...

Thanks so much for stopping by...hope to see you over at Lacy Sunshine and if you click HERE you will see what my very talented teamies have done too...

See you tomorrow..

SAY CHEESE!!



Hello Everyone...

Colder than ever today...brrr...freezing wind and drizzle which I think has ice in it..but it is warm and cosy in my craft space and it’s time for Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights  ..this is when the DT show case some of the fabulous images Wendy has over at the Shop  ..

This week I played with this little cutie called Say Cheese Polly 

She was a delight to colour and really enjoyed doing her hair with Faber Castell pencils....




There she is...a very plain simple card front...the film strip off the internet and just plain black and white...just like the old days...except Polly is into 'selfies'...so here we go...

 


We have a head shot.....





Oops!!...she needs more practice here....




Almost got it....




Aww..never mind...


Here's the whole card inside...a little selfie album card for a wee lass who loves to take her own pictures and still learning.....





Just tied it all together with string bows...a bit of fun and hope she likes it..

Thanks so much for stopping by...will see you tomorrow..

Chocolate fish tonight..yum!!

Hello Everyone...

Another chilly day but I still took Harry..no! wait...Harry still took me for a loooong walk in the icy wind but it was very invigorating [or so I'm trying to kid myself]..

Back today to share another card I made using my sweet little Bear...my most favourite animal EVER.. Barry  ...[well.. apart from my darling Harry [my dog]..

Barry is from the Halloween collection at Stampfairy ..





He is all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils...his hat paper pieced with scraps of 'Crate paper - Portrait collection'...





His cape was coloured with a pro marker in deep purple...but looks blue now..



The side view...just added punched stars...some gold twine from my Christmas box...a sentiment on the PC...and that was about it..

Going to enter these challenges....

CUTE POOCH..


Hello Everyone....

Hope you are all well and happy..

We are having a big chill going through tonight so I'm sitting here in my craftroom all snug and ready to share my DT card for Stampfairy 

This is the cutest little  dog Charlie Happy Life 



 

I coloured him with Faber Castell pencils in a patch work..way...well, I left bits of white showing through which gave him a patchy look.




 

 The clouds are MB cut with paw print papers...Marianne fence and Fiskars grass punch..which I broke...springs and things flying all over the place and was so upset...but number one Son saved the day with his talents of fixing anything..






And the side view...isn't he cute.

Thanks so much for stopping by...off to watch 'My Kitchen Rules'..yep..I'm hooked on that one and have pineapple lumps tonight..yum!!.

Hello Everyone...

Been a long day...chilly and wet and so glad to be home now...had my tea and it was delicious and ate far too much and Harry had what was left...bad habit.. but he loves it.. and it was only veges and gravy left...not too bad.

 
It’s time for Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights..this is when the DT show case some of the fabulous images Wendy has over at the SHOP ..

This week I was able to use this hunky wee fellow called Beach Babe Scottie  



 
 

Isn't he great...he is coloured with Faber Castell pencils...the ball with copics R17 -YR07  and his jandals with  YG17...





His glasses coloured with R17 copic and added glossy accents..

The papers in the background was one sheet 12x12 from my stash and all beach themed so I just cut them down to fit and they were perfect...



Some Marianne creatables Shells and starfish...a bit of fluffed up string..  and the job was done...

So there go...my little bit of inspiration...
