Hello Everyone...

I'm not sure where this came from..maybe it was a packing envelope and I stored it away...but I was going through this tiny cupboard in my craft space and found it ripped in half right down the bottom and the creative juices started to flow...

I peeled some of the outer paper off...and underneath was this....

I kept peeling and my mind suddenly said "BEE'S"... that is just what it looked like to me...sooo..
Gold Acrylic paint and a wooden stamp flower and lots of fussy cut Bee's I had made this...

I thought the flower was a clear stamp and spent forever looking for it, but it was a wooden stamp from Rubbadubbadoo and probably by passed it 10 times..

I stamped the flower three times...coloured it all in and fussy cut them out...then added loads of dark beads to the centres...

The Bee's, I found on the net and fussy cut them out too...

Hot glue in the honeycomb drizzling down then sprinkled more yellow beads to look like honey was running down...

And that was it really...but I like it and had a lot of fun playing on my day off..

Thanks so much for stopping to work this windy Saturday morning and lunch with"My Lady " today for her that will be nice.

See you tomorrow..

Hello Everyone..

Here today with our new challenge inspiration for  SOUTHERN GIRLS but firstly thank you to all who joined in our last challenge and congratulations to the winners...

This week our theme is LAYERS..I love layers especially when I have a cardboard box floating around..

I used one of our sponsors images Blue Bird 2 from Norma J Burnell  and just  loved colouring him in...

There he is and not a bit of blue in sight [ for a bluebird]..and a  light subtle background which you can barely see, but it is there.

Then came those designer papers just corrugated cardboard..wish now I had added some Gesso for highlights...

And feathers from my stash and the beautiful hessian rose..

Nothing inside at the time these photos were taken, as it was an order and I added details with pockets inside later on...with more feathers.

So there we go..please come and join us in ort LAYERS theme at SOUTHERN GIRLS  would love to see you there..

Thanks ever so much for stopping by....nice easy day at work today and day off tomorrow [Friday]..yay!!..

Hello Everyone..

Not a lot of chit chat today as my card will tell all [I hope]...


All the jumpers were fussy cut out and the wee Bear dressed accordingly..

Here we go..

Teddy went outside to play on a cold snowy day..but, he is naked and it was just too cold.
So he thought he better go inside and fetch a jumper as he had plenty to choose from...

He went  inside to his bedroom...where stacked in the corner were his suitcases and the largest one had his jumpers inside...

He tried the purple one on first....

then he tried the blue one on.....

Then came the green one.....

But he finally settled for the orange one with the fur trim...after all...
A Bear needs to keep himself warm outside...

Mmmm..don't think you will be able to read these ....wish I had made the txt  bigger....
So back I go and will re write the words up for you..

There we go..this book card has been sold already so that was good..a Grandmother had a point to make to her young grandson apparently..

Thanks so much for stopping by..don't forget to check out MISS DAISY STAMPS  and we are also on FACEBOOK  so come join the group for some fun...

See you tomorrow..

Hello everyone...

Nice easy day for me today at work and home already...have a busy evening all this week but nice to be home when the watery Winter sun is shinning..

Going to share a card I made for fun..using this delightful and gorgeous image from JULIA SPIRI

GIRL WITH MUSHROOM  and going to enter their challenge ..anything goes with a twist of Unusual Hair...

Well, to me, any hair that is not light brown is unusual for me to this was a challenge..

There she is..all coloured up with Reno Art Markers and the background with a grey Faber Castell pencil and blending solution..

I love this mushroom border die that Annie sent me.and I .coloured it with markers..
MB die cut leaves...some solid and some framed...cheese cloth and a dragonfly..

I had a lot of trouble getting the white spots to show up on the mushroom so used white corrective pen in the end..did the job. [my gel pen does not like my markers..

One last photo...really pleased with this one...

Hello Everyone..

Sunday evening and the temp is dropping..the winds are up and rain is on the way..well, that is what the weather man says, but I don't think he really knows..

Here today to share my inspiration project for SASAYAKI GLITTER and another wonderful image from the mid May new releases...

Aye..tis' a wee pirate...PIRATE SHY  be his name..all coloured up with Reno Art markers.

Glued some rope [thick string]..around the edge of the card and the background papers is brown wrapping paper with a treasure map printed onto it...then screwed up and spread out..many times to get just the right amount of wrinkles...

I added a Couture Creation Ships wheel die...and we were done.I can add a sentiment and name when I know where it is going..

Hello Everyone...

Mid way through May and mid way through our challenge over at the Creative Playground for..

IMAGINE THAT  and we are having a sketch theme [which I find very difficult]as I'm
inclined to wander off in my own direction and leave the sketches behind, but I really concentrated and this is what I came up with..

This image is called..Well Wishes and is the coloured version from the set..

And this is the sketch...

See..I did pretty good.

Hard to see, but I added the sentiment on the heart digitally...

and then I did something fancy in my editing program..

The papers were from my stash and thank goodness I had a heart punch..

So do come and join in at our SKETCH CHALLENGE  if you can at IMAGINE THAT..

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