Love bear

He is such a cutie, a digital stamp, can't say from where !  Needless to say I enjoyed using my Copic pens on him and I especially like how his fur turned out.

Enjoy and Happy New Year to you all xxxx

Welcome to you

This is rather special to me, it's using images from Make It Crafty, I love the quirky images, they suit me..... so I am entering this into their DT call. Wish me luck. The brief was to use an image from their range and make something suitable for new friends... after a week or two of thinking I came up with this, and I rather like it!  I am not giving this away, this is a keeper.

Coloured with copic pens, and using paper pad DCWV French Country Stack 12"x12" which is totally stunning. I used my Cricut to cut the embellies, vintage photo distress ink to define the edges. Pearls buttons and seam binding complete the design.

The light is so bad here in Suffolk today,  so apologies for the quality of the photo, I might take the pics again when the sun is out.

Thank you for stopping by, xxxx

I've renamed my blog to lizzydoodles.... I have been asked recently what my blog is and my previous name seemed to cause confusion, hopefully this one is easier!

Molly Blooms

I recently went to a workshop with Clare Rowlands,  and this is the project we made, using her stamps and knowledge!  "Today" she said " we are doing construction" oh dear I thought, not sure about that!  But I really enjoyed the class and didn't do too bad a job to the construction bit.

Hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by. xx

Are you ready?

I seem to be on a roll... long may it continue!  This is my Christmas card for all my neighbours and friends... It is a papershelter image, which I have printed and used my wonderful Copic pens on.. I scanned it, and then using some software inserted it into a photo frame using a scrap layout from Raspberry Road designs.. then I printed the whole thing onto glossy all worked out rather well,  a touch of real embellishments, an insert and hey presto 40 cards! I did the same for my Grandchildren, they coloured several images from Meljen's designs. We made loads of cards in just a few hours.  They just stuck them onto A6 cards.

This is my original art work,  super cute image from one of my favourite digi sites, The Paper Shelter. Sorry about the quality of the photo's but time has slipped past me again today!

You Rock

Happy Christmas, you rock!
Well hello to blogland,  I haven't been here for ages, due to personal reasons, which are now on an even keel!  So Christmas is nearly upon us all,  and as I smugly sit here typing, my cards are made and my presents are wrapped,  oh yes indeedy... my latest card for Cuddly Buddly,  and if anyone of you follow them on Facebook you will  have seen loads of my creations there over the last couple of months!

I didn't have time to crop it.  So you have a lovely view of my carpet in front of my patio doors!  Oh the joy of never having enough hours in the day.  Crafty hugs to everyone...xxxx

Cornelia Indian

What a fabulous image from Saturated Canary, I couldn't resist her.  I was looking for something to make with a food theme,  and this was the best digi I found, she is carrying corn from the fields. I wanted to enter into the Colour by Design blog challenge,HERE ! the theme today is food!  I coloured her in with Copics, and used the Prima Botanical papers, and real feathers!! Super colours hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by xxxx

Here comes Molly!

What a beautiful little Molly Blooms stamp. I took advantage of my other half yesterday, he was at home "working" and said "fancy going anywhere?"  Foolish chap... I took him off to Peterborough to Sir Stampalot.. hence the Molly Blooms stamp and Bo Bunny papers !! LOL.... mind you we also ended up at the train shop (for those that don't know, we have a garden railway layout ! )  So we both got spoilt rotten.  This little card is for a colleague at work, whose birthday is later this month. Hope she likes it.

Thank you for stopping by, and for all you very kind comments.

And a pic sent to Sir Stampalot to show them what I did !

This is a lovely little collection of digi images from Cuddly Buddly,  I forgot to upload this when I completed this a few weeks ago,  so here we go! I used the scrap for a nice side border !!  Love those butterflies from the Sizzix stamp and Framelits range.. I had just taken delivery of my new Copics when I coloured this in,  so don't look too closely ! lol x

Thanks so much for stopping by,  and thank you to my new member!  xx

Plumpy pumpkin

How lovely is he!  A lovely plump pumpkin, he looks like he's had too many goody bags!  The image is from Meljen's designs, and coloured with Copics, and highlighted with a white pen. All the edges have been distressed and mounted onto a picture frame which has had canvas stretched over to give a nice firm base. He is going to sit on my hall table to welcome all the Autumn visitors to my home.

And a close up of Plumpy! Not sure you can see, he has glitter on the image,  and a few spots on his face, they shouldn't be there. Note to self, brush off image before taking a photo !  I have now run out of time today, so this will have to do!  lol xxx

 This shows the canvas, it has been wrapped around the photo frame, which holds a standard photo,  I have distressed the edges with Tim Holz vintage photo, and in real life it's a bit darker than this.  Hope you like it.

Another lovely Cuddly Buddly image and still using the Prima patterned papers too, I love these colours, they are so perfect for a Christmassy image.  I have layered up the papers, did loads of faux stitching, and using my favourite banner shape for the sentiment, which has been printed onto Safmat.  I have used Copics to colour in.

And the inside too:

My little ray of sunshine

My youngest beautiful daughter had her 3rd baby 4 weeks ago, in fact Baby Sebastian is exactly 1 month old!  Goodness how time flies, it only seems like yesterday we were on standby waiting for the call to gather up the other grandchildren ready for the new arrival!  She is the most wonderful "child" you could wish for, she copes like no other person I know,  and has such a positive outlook no matter what problems come her way.

 As a little thank you from me for giving me another beautiful Grandson I have made this card, it sort of sums her up... it will be included into a little parcel, which will include tea bags (her favourite tipple), pretty hair scrunchies, pretty beads, and anything else I can think of, if anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful !

I used a lovely digi from Saturated Canary HERE ! And beautiful papers from Raspberry Road Stacked papers ! I coloured in with Copics, hand made the flower, added ribbon and buttons and 2 die cut hearts from Marianne Designs, one each!

I am going to enter this into these challenges:

Lots of Love

I really am pleased with how this card turned out,  and for whatever reason I love the inside as much as the outside!  I am just starting to realise how important the inside is to the recipient,  so I shall probably keep on doing this.  The image is from Cuddly Buddly, as are the Prima North Country paper stack.  Really only used these papers, I love them lots! 

I coloured her in with my Copics,  yay for Copics,  I love love love them... yes completely barmy!!

Thank you for stopping by.. I will be entering this into some challenges, more details to follow. xx

Playful Peonies

Good morning fellow crafties... it's a beautiful sunny morning in Suffolk, and I'm just about to hang out the washing... BUT I just needed to post this lovely card for my Mum,  it's her birthday on Friday, she'll be 82, still tutoring in altered textile art, going to classes and entering competitions, she is a very clever lady. I tried to get her to blog to show off her work,  but although she has all the lastest gadgets and gizmo's, (Latest Ipad etc) she never seems to have enough time to blog, I know how she feels !! lol.  Anyway, my simple card using Playful peonies from Stitchy Bears was perfect, it's her favourite flower, you can find it here .

I used my wonderful Copics, and the pic shows the inside too,  not the most brilliant of pics but I am still learning. 

Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for your lovely comments, it means so much to me, and keeps me going.

Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by xxx

Yo !

Isn't she cute!  I think she is trying to be a cool dude,  however I think she is just a cute kid with a birthday... she is "Yo" from Stitchy bears, you can find her here I had some fun with this using up some scraps, of course it hasn't made a dent in them,  but I am determined to use some up before I buy anymore... yer right ! lol.  I used my Copic markers to colour her in. She is going to be given to my beautiful Granddaughter Lily who will be 5 at Christmas.

Thank you for stopping by xx
