Hello Everyone..

Another card for fun tonight..

I love this cute little Mouse from Meljens Designs called "Autumn Flower mouse"

All coloured with Faber Castell pencils except for the yellow flower I used copics.

I was thrilled to bits with the leaves..I used a spellbinders leaf die set of 3...embossed first.. then cut..then inked...the colours and textures came out really neat and I only used scraps of card.

The flowers are silk from a bunch I had and ripped it apart...

Added wooden beads to spell out 'Autumn' and a mushroom peg.

The paper are from rosies Studio 'basics' and the butterfly was printed..fussy cut out...coloured with copics and thick glossy accents on top..

I added an umbrella from MB up top and the "Hello" on the flower pot are stickers.

Challenges I would like to enter...

Bearly Mine challenge  [Autumnal colours]

Dies R Us  [Fall Festival]

Mema's Crafts  [Fall Theme/colour challenge]

We are having an awful weather change here in NZ...snow and winds roaring with rain...gosh! where did Spring poor blossoms..hopefully it will settle down again.

See you tomorrow..[ I weakened tonight and have a pixie Caramel to munch on]

Hello Everyone...Sunday afternoon here and going to schedule this wee guy as I'm off out for tea [after work]...and really looking forward to it..

This is my DT card for Stampfairy  and this time used a cute Lenny Christmas image and I felt the need for Red and Green...

There he is...sitting on his giant candy cane and looking so smart in his red suit...

A close up of Lenny and his sparkly trim and pom pom's....

And the side view...the sentiment is cut out from the yummy papers Couture Creations "Vintage Christmas"...added some cheescloth stuff...but only little bits and sort of  poked them it in the gaps as I forgot to do it before...but this works so much better as you dont need so much....who woulda thunk!...probably'm always last on the list.
A tiny pom pom trim and some punched snowflakes with red gems and there we have it.

Going to enter these challenges...

Hello Everyone...
I'm so sorry if I have not been by but my PC starts roaring its head off on a lot of sites..the cooling fan I think...and then it shuts itself annoying and having such trouble loading pictures roars again and if I'm not quick enough editing it shuts down again..the poor old thing needs to be put out to pasture...but cannot afford another yet.

So time to share my card while Mr.PC is quiet...

I made this one just for fun ...

This wee fellow is from Pink Gem Designs and is called 'Winter Phillip'..I won him ages ago and only used him once...

Skin and hair coloured with Faber Castell pencils and his clothes with copics..shaded with pencils.
I used a cotton ball stretched till it fell apart for his fur trim on his hat and boots..added a pom pom on his hat.

The die is a Couture Creations Cameo oval die and I never liked it...but this time I embossed it first and the design came out and looked a bit more interesting...

The papers and pom pom trim from my stash and the snowflakes were punched and just added some fawn coloured pearls..

Would like to enter in the challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie  [anything goes]

The temps went soaring today up to 20o[C] Summer is just around the corner..

See you tomorrow...

Hello Everyone...

DT day for Stampfairy  today and I have the cutest camping scene to share..

This is Lenny Camping 

There he is...sitting by his fire with his beans...and just remembered that he forgot his marshmellows...

The great tent image is from the internet and I paper pieced it as there was just too much to colour..but I love the effect and it is nice and thick.

  Lenny  is all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils...his fire with copics and glitter.

The side design papers on this card either..just kraft and pale blue cardstock.

The fluffy clouds are memory box and I cut them out of florist cellophane.. and added a grass border with butterfly.

The other side where you can see the clouds a bit better...I cut out white clouds and glued the cellophane on top as they sort of faded into the cardstock.

So there we go...thanks so much for stopping by..

Hello Everyone....hope the weekend is going well for you all...mine is at a close and looking forward to a good nights sleep as I bought a new feather down pillow today...probably sneeze all night and be allergic to it.. but shouldn't be as my duvet is feathers..

So onto the reason while we are here....a new challenge at Lacy Sunshine is about to start and this week we are looking at "Fairy Dreams".. of course you can use any winged image you like...

And remember if you have used a Lacy Sunshine image for the challenge you qualify to use the free image in the next challenge as part of our loyalty scheme.

This week the DT's were given a gift from our lovely boss Heather and were each given a selection of beautiful flowers from our sponsor Petal Lu Flowers

For my card I'm sharing a new release especially for this challenge..

This is "Tansy Plumray" and will be in the Shop very soon..

I have coloured Tansy with Faber Castell pencils in a soft pink and violet and blended the colours together...her shoes and wings in a lemon yellow glitter to match my flowers....

Her eyes deserved to be violet too and made her into a blond..

The gorgeous flowers from Petal Lu ....pearls and butterfly from my stash.

A Marianne die was used as a frame on both sides and added it after cutting it in half..chose lemon yellow ribbon and the Birthday sentiment is a clear stamp from a magazine.

So there we go...a New Challenge  at Lacy Sunshine and would love to see you all there with your Fairies or any winged creature.

Thanks so much for stopping by....another new week starting tomorrow and half way through September or nearly...time is flying along.

Hello Everyone....

It’s time for Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights Blog 
This is when the DT show case some of the fabulous images Wendy has over at the Shop  

This week I was able to play with royalty...

Meet Royal Frog  

There he is...a pure delight to colour using a few copics but mainly my Faber Castell pencils...

I added extra eyelashes....glitter to his spots....and gold gel pen on his crown for that regal look he so deserves...

The waterlillies were from the net and I shrunk them down...coloured with copics and fussy cut out...the entourage dragon flies are brads from my stash...papers from Rosies Studio "Reagal Collection"...just seemed fitting some how..

Thanks so much for stopping by...and you can catch up with my teamies and their wonderful projects HERE

My computer is getting quite old and playing up something awful...keeps shutting itself this post is a real quick one while I'm up and running..

I will see you tomorrow...
