Hello Everyone...

Thursday again..and time for my DT inspiration card showcasing another wonderful image from the

This time I played with such a happy Snowman...FLURRY THE SNOWMAN 

Such a neat image to colour which I did with copics this time...R27..YG03..Y02..added glitter to his lamp and hat trim.

There he is in all his glory with his rosy pink cheeks..

I went around the image and under his feet with chunky glitter ...

Snowflakes punched out with glittered board and some muslin poked in here and there...

Papers and lace trim from my stash and the sentiment from Digital delights too.

The DT have made some fabulous projects which you can see HERE  and then we are having a couple of weeks off and will be back all refreshed on Jan 8th.

That's me done...thanks so much for stopping by..PC still holding up, just very slow.

I've been on a snail hunt as I had snail slime across my carpet the other morning...he must have been hiding in the Christmas tree bucket and comes out at night all the gifts came out and I searched every where...but the allusive little blighter was not to be found.

Went to the craft cupboard where I stand to build my cards..opened the door to get my muslin out to cut into squares and low and behold...there he was..with his kids!!!
FOUR snails on the inside of the cupboard door..YUK!!..need I say.. they have been evicted..

See you tomorrow..

Hello everyone..

Oh! Boy!..I have missed  you all so PC had a total melt down and  has died..[so sad]..I am up temporarily with my hard drive inside another box thing..I don't know...I'm up and running for awhile and that is all that matters to me...a new PC in the New Year hopefully..

I have a cute little penguin to share with you today...Skier Slippy from the fabulous Digital Delights Shop

There he is....zooming down the icy slopes at the ski fields...twisting and turning through the trees..

The gorgeous papers were a freebie from Beccy's  and I only added some snow glitter to them..

There's a close up of  Slippy with his cold rosy cheeks and I made the sign post and added snowflakes using a sentiment from Digital Delights store ... Slippy is coloured with copics and pencils..fussy cut out and popped up on foam squares..

The side view..

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I will catch up with you all over the next couple of days.

Work is starting to wind into top gear as Christmas approaches and I'm working with so many new clients filling in for caregivers who are on leave and not sure if I'm coming or going..

See you soon.

Hello Everyone..

Saturday early evening and a bit sticky on it...had a long day working and watching my grandsons too, so glad to be home now and looking forward to my tea.[ I found my choccies some.]

I have used a CD today...but not in the way you think..that would be asking for a miracle..but used one all the same..

As a decoration..

This little cat was a freebie to use at  The Eastwind  challenge  and his name is La la's Merry Christmas..

Coloured him up Faber Castell pencils and added glitter for his trim and the fish was coloured with gold and silver gel pens...

A close up of La la Merry Christmas with his big eyes filled up with glossy accents...

And I'm afraid I have a bad habit of popping on gems following the circle so some look upside down..or crooked at least..

Lots of punched snowflakes and a raffia bow and sitting on a spellbinders scallop circle

The background was done with a pencil [finally remembered to do it first  ,before colouring my image..a lot easier].

Entering the challenge at Eastwind Challenges 

and Crafting by Design  [anything Christmas]

That's all for to cook my steak  and a night in front of the telly with my eyes shut..[as usual]

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

Hello Again...

Still Thursday...second post, and this time for CRAFTY LITTLE FAIRIES 

A new challenge this month and we are looking for HOLLY AND OR/IVY..

For my card I used this adorable and very cheeky elf from Mo Manning.

Little Elf Finn..

There he is swinging on his Christmas ornament and having a blast...

Skin and hair coloured with Faber Castell pencils and his clothes and hat with a red copic R27 and shading with green with copic YG03..and bauble with B32.

My new Holly die which now working a lot better..and added some gems..

Side one...just as a light breeze blew in and ruffled his feather....

And side two..showing the muslin cloth...punched snowflakes and sentiment...which again is a new die and used the baking paper on my card as I could not cut the cardstock with the die..yet.

Papers are Kaisercraft 6x6 pad [shh..they are new too]..well, it is nearly Christmas..

So there we go...would love to see your holly/ivy projects at Crafty Little Fairies challenge 

Thanks again for stopping by..I'm off to find some choccies...I'm sure I had a box of scorched almonds tucked away..or maybe I've already eaten them..maybe I should just go and coloured something...not so fattening.
