Hello everyone..

Mid way through October and time for my inspiration project for IMAGINE THAT DIGISTAMP

and I used this most beautiful digi from the store called PIONSETTIA

Coloured with my markers in a deep rich red and the darkest green I had called Olive..

I just loved colouring this image and also loved fussy cutting extra pinecones and leaves to add a bit of dimension.

I made a little cluster of Christmas cones and flowers with white and red  berries just because I cannot leave things alone..

I also added gold pearl drops to the centre of the flower and the Christmas senitment is my favourite script and going to use it a lot..

This is the FABulous set...gorgeous.

Hello Everyone..

Another Thursday has rolled around and time for some cute inspiration from the store..

This week I have used the adorable  CALENDAR OWLS SET  and used the October Owl..

All coloured up with my markers and every little gold star was glued on individually..

There he is flying over the roof tops with the sparkly moon giving him light..
Those stars were a nightmare but I started it and had to finish

This is the fabulous set and you get all those cute images...

Hello Everyone...

Time to share some more new and super fun releases for SASAYAKI GLITTER

I have three to share today and will post them all today in the one post so it will be a biggin'..

First up is #116 - Autumn..

Gosh, they are having fun and something I love to do...

These cute kids are coloured with my markers and used kraft card for my base...I cut loads of leaves [Cheery Lynn Designs]....wheelbarrow and watering can [Marianne Designs]..  same with the bird on the branch and grass border...lots of dies today...the watering can was cut with silver board..

I also did some stamping...what possessed me I'm not sure but made it most the way round till I messed up this leave die floating in the stamp draw and the urge hit me to stamp.



#118 - Ghost House......

Ooo..this was scary to colour with ghosts and things that go bump in the dark....

Naaa....not really as the image is really cute and really fun to colour with my markers...
I addded gate dies from Cheery Lynn [ first dies I bought years ago ]..

Added a pumpkin and black cat die and added some gold paper behind the cats eyes so he could see better in the dark!!....

And a side view...


And my Third Project is my favourite....

#119 - Witch Frog...

SO much fun to colour with my markers and pencils...

The Pumpkin came out again and so did the spider web dies with the spider down the bottom lurking in the long grass [die]..

The face of the Pumpkin was fussy cut out and I added a little tealight inside the card it is.

FABulous new release as always and thanks so much for stopping by..I know it was a long one..

I'll see you Thursday..

I've been moving my craftroom out of my living space and into the spare TV in there and new tables and stuff..I will share photos soon..

Hello Everyone..

I have had a bit of time to myself last few days so took advantage and made a card for a friends Golden Wedding Anniversary..

He is a very keen gardner and she loves green and they both love between them both I came up with a card and matching box with green and outdoor elements like the birds on the branch and flowers..

This was [is] the front of the box....the focal sentiment was PC generated in gold[ish]

The beautiful die cut butterfly was cut using Wild Rose Studio Butterfly die and the gold foil from the semi soft butter container....wiped clean of cannot have someone walking around licking butterfly wings!!!

The front of the card was the same but without the birds and their names replaced the congratulations..

And a side view..

Well. it is Sunday afternoon while I'm writing this post up and pouring with rain and I have to venture out in it soon to do the afternoon rounds with my clients..[sigh]..

Thanks so much for stopping by..I will see you again soon.

Hello Everyone...

Delightful Thursday time with DIGITAL DELIGHTS  and the first Thursday of the month so time also for a new release..

I cannot share links as the images are not on the blog or in the store as poor Wendy had a family emergency over in Scotland and had to leave in a huge hurry..I'm sure we all send her some love at this sad time.

So at least I have my image already to go so here is "STOCKING GINGER"

They are very cute and fun to colour...I held my breath for a very long time going over and around those snowflakes and stars on that boot and I went all weak and light headed..

I know she is sort of floating a bit so added the snowflakes under her  to ground her as best as I could because I really wanted to use my train die from Marianne Creatables..

All the colouring done with my markers and Faber castell pencils for shading...

Love the papers from MME "O Christmas Tree" ..
The sentiment comes with this set ..

So there we go...Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you soon..
