The weekend is almost here and my Doctor was just lovely today..
He didn't try to lance my finger..just gave me loads of antibiotics and I go back on Monday for another looksee..and then he will probably do something drastic..hmm...like lancing it...but..if these antibiotics do there job over the weekend..and they are very powerful ones..I maybe okay..I am unable to colour..ink..glue...type..[oop's]..for the entire weekend. I must keep my hand up by my shoulder and rest it...the poison has spread up my hand in two red lines and travelling up my arm past my wrist now..so he must stop that...here's hoping.
But thought I could just sneak on and share a card I coloured and made awhile ago now...
This is Izzybella Boo Cute as a Button
This little sweetheart is from Lacy Sunshine all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils.
Papers are MME "Happy Day"....buttons and big red flowers from my stash..
The side view...
Short and sweet tonight...yes..I should not be typing..I give up and will go rest.
Going to enter these challenges...

I'm a sad puss today as I have a rotten finger...and it is my finger I cut on the Mandalin blade and now I've hurt it again..it is infected something yucky and I have to go to the Dr. tomorrow..but..if he thinks he is going to pop it..well..I will pop him..just give me some pills to make it go away and we will all sleep well..[I'm such a sooky baby]..
Today I'm here to share a card for our new challenge at CRAFTY LITTLE FAIRIES
and this week we want to see "Saturday Night at the Movies"...
Now I will admit this stumped me for a few days as there are so many movies I just love..then browsing in my files I found this image and my card evolved from there.
Birthday Cake Sassy from Sassy Studio Designs ...
"Sixteen Candles" - with Molly Ringwald...
She is all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and the sentiment tags I made on the PC..
Lots of pretty flowers from WOC and a neopolitan striped ribbon from my stash..
The papers from "Cre8tiv mini stack" and added some tiny sparkly heart gems down the bottom.
We are sponsored by The Ribbon Girl with a wonderful prize of a = £10 voucher..
So do come and join in this week..and thanks so much for stopping by...cant wait to see what my DT Fairies have done with this one..I bet they are all amazing.
I will see you tomorrow...me and my sore finger are off to pretend we can colour..IT IS MY COLOURING FINGER AGAIN!!!.

Wednesday afternoon while I'm sitting here typing...my work is over for the morning and have the afternoon off till tea time...so hiding away in my craft space...not answering the phone..and just playing.
Today I'm here with another DT inspirational card for STAMPFAIRY ...
NO!!..it is not a Bear...but a Bunny...CLEMENTINE EASTER 1
There she is...sweet little Clementine...nestled amongst the flowers with her Easter egg...
All coloured up with my Faber Castell pencils..and a red copic..fabulous papers from "Cre8tiv paper stack - Hazy Days" and the sentiment I stamped inside the chipboard topper tag that came in the set.
Loads of Spring flowers and the egg nestled in the middle of the flowers is a real sweet...I saw them at the dairy and thought "Why Not!"..so this is a real lickable card..if you don't mind a bit of cold hot glue!!
The side view...
So there is my Easter card for today..Thanks so much for stopping by and all the wonderful comments you all leave..really makes my day reading them all..so thank you.
I'm going to schedule this card and nosey around for some challenges..but in the meantime..I'm off back to my crafty afternoon..

Monday has rolled around again and March already for goodness sake..
The mornings are getting chilly as the sun starts peeping over the horizon...funny that!...quite nice at 5am...then the Sun starts coming up and the air chills down..but only until the sun is totally up then the heat creeps back...
So that it is the weather report in my part of the world and now time to kick into a new
MAKE IT MONDAY ....thanks to all who played along last week and as usual a fantastic selection of cards and paper projects...congrats to the winners..
This week we are being sponsored by Time For Tea Designs and I chose this gorgeous image to play with....Girl with Giant Ice cream
All coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and lashings of glitter on that yummy ice cream...
Gave her a giant bow to match that giant ice cream...and added rubber ice creams and strawberries..the ice creams were on a key ring which I found in Australia last year and the strawberries are actually polystyrene...and I just cut them in half with the bread knife so they sat flat..
Papers from my stash and a few flowers from WOC dotted around...
For my POTW [pick of the week]..I went for this beauty from #250 Diane ..
I love roosters and chickens and the colouring on this is just beautiful...gorgeous card Diane...thank you so much for sharing with us at Make it Monday...
So that's me all done...time to head out the door to work shortly and get 'My Ladies' organised for the day..then a few cleaning jobs today and hopefully by mid afternoon I will be free to rejuvenate until it starts all over again at tea time...lol..
Thanks so much for stopping by and I really do appreciate all the wonderful comments you all leave...
Will see you tomorrow...or Wednesday...but will pop round and leave some love after work..

Okay..okay.. onto matters of my DT for STAMPFAIRY ..
Today it is LENNY'S turn to be on my card front...LENNY PIRATE ..
He is a handsome little Pirate and can kidnap me anytimes he wants.
All coloured up with my Faber Castell pencils and a red copic on his scarf..and I added white gel pen spots...

Back today with my ispiration DT card for STAMPFAIRY
Another Birthday card using my favourite STAMPFAIRY Bear....
BARRY BIRTHDAY ...but!.. by the look on his face..I dont think he wanted a chocolate chip cupcake...I think he wanted strawberry....
Alas for Barry...the rules are 'Be Thankful for what you get'..so my Mother used to say...and you didn't argue with her either when we were little...lol..
There is sweet Barry all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils....
The yummy cup cakes were printed onto these papers, but lost the cover of the pad so cannot tell you what they are...I just added the glitter..
I glittered up Barrys hat too which is sparkling in the sun...
Added a bright orange double bow...made some squiggle lines and popped on a sentiment..one birthday card ready to go..
Thanks for stopping by...will see you tomorrow..
