A lovely long is such a great day to be inside crafting...

Still have to work 3 times a day over the long weekend..but that's dears are part of my life and it is only for 1/2 hour each time for each, still plenty of me time.

Here today to share my DT card using a gorgeous cute image from Stampfairy 

Garden Goblins [image 3]  from the Halloweenfall collection.

He is such fun to colour and using my Faber Castell colouring pencils that is just what I did.

I paper pieced the mushrooms and added pearls this time.....and paper pieced the small mushrooms along the bottom..[cheery Lyn die - from Annie]...

Papers are Rosies Studio called 'My Favourite recipe' and added Memory box Bamboo shoots for the foliage.

One more side view to see the dimension..

Okay...this is a scheduled one as I'm off to work soon and coming home to pork chops..yum!!!well,I have to cook them when I get home but still yum!!..

Been taking it easy with the chocolate bunnies and eggs as I got a good dose of heartburn the other think I have learned my lesson...will cut down.[a bit] and buy more baking

Thanks so much for stopping by...have an awesome weekend..see you soon.

Hello Everyone....still pouring with rain here in sunny Hawkes what our bay has been called for as many years as I can remember...had to take Harry for his morning tinkle with the umbrella again..the things we do..

Here today with a new challenge with Crafty Little Fairies  and our theme..


I used this fabulous image from Meljens Designs - Pilot Puppy 

There he is... flying high over the daisy dotted hills and the trees...and through the clouds without a care in the world...

The sky papers were a freebie download from Bird.

The hills I made myself and painted the daisies with a white gel pen...

The trees were a couture creations border die and I cut it the make the trees fit better.

There's the side view...the plane has been paper pieced with Kraft [manilla folder] and the stars and the Puppies scarf...then popped up on dimension tape to make a very cool shadow.

The banner I made myself and attached to the plane with bakers twine.
and the sentiment says 'Missing you already'..

Hello Everyone...

Still raining and a bit chilly but better than the heat and drought we were going through..and the Farmers are still smiling and happy.

Here today with a card I made last week for the challenge over at A Little Bit Crafty and their challenge is "Birds and Bee's..

So I used this little sweetie from Mo Mannings Baby Fairy Bee  ...

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and a yellow copic and loads of glitter on his wings..

A close up of the cute image and the little bird at his feet is a MB die but I added legs to him..he looked a bit strange sitting on his

The open card.... Wired bird cage die from poppy stamps...with a bird inside.. and the stripe bow went perfect with the papers from 'Crate Paper' - Portrait collection.

Have all the family for tea tonight so better get in the kitchen as I hear some huffing and puffing going on.

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

Lenny Fathers Day 5 

My Dad loved playing golf but getting on a bit and just watches golf games on the telly...all day!!.

Lenny is coloured with Faber Castell pencils and fussy cut out to stand on the 'green'..

His golf ball is a small pom pom and used my Fiskars grass punch..

No designers papers used on this card and you will never guess what the yellow stuff is???

It is actually "Marine Foam backed suede" say that fast and you will doing real good..

I picked this up from a client I go to who is an upholster..and found the yellow strip first on the floor and asked if I could have it...then he gave me a bigger strip of suede and the black dots are actually holes...neat eh!!

The side view...the 'DAD' stickers and  the golf tag are from my stash.
