My mate

What a super start to the week, no snow and brilliant sunshine... yep I can handle that!  I recently purchased a lovely clear stamp from Cuddly Buddly called "My mate", the quality of the stamp is superb.. and I couldn't wait to colour her in. So she has bright pink shiny boots and a matching hat,  the sort of thing I wish I could wear but daren't, maybe when I am 75 or something, and people might think I am just a mad old bat! lol

Big bear hugs

Ah what a cute little bear,  another wonderful digi from Cuddly Buddly,  using Kim's new digi papers too, which are so useful and the colours are superb! Also using Viva Perler pen, in opaque, definately worth a look!  My little bear is coloured with Copics, is there anything else!!  Love using the spring colours, soooo refreshing.

DT work for my work!

Hi guys,  I was set a challenge by my Manager to make something out of a wooden heart and a decopatch frame,  these are the results. My only thought is that the butterfly is too big,  but as they are going to be displayed in the shop to give our lovely customers ideas I figured I would leave it.  But I like how they turned out. Forgive the state of the background, 'im indoors is sorting me out a new photo studio,  this is the trial run..... not bad, but needs improvement ! lol Bless him xx

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely crafty day!  I will, I'm at work! xx

She's a star

Good morning from snowy Suffolk,  yes we still have snow,  about 3 inches or so last night,  but we are good, we've already swept our pathways, on account our Postman slipped over last year, and I must have my parcels!  Seriously he hurt his hip, so now we clear and salt the path.  Anyway I got a lovely parcel today, 100 sheets of the bestest card for colouring in on. Oh yes indeedy! Anyway, this little star is a freebie from Mayzy Art,  the bag was too,  so this all in all cost about 50p !  I shall pass this onto my beautiful Granddaughter who is of course a star!

Thanks for stopping by xxxxxxx

Valentine Mouse

Such a little cutie from Cuddly Buddly... As usual I was going for pale colours!  Why is that they always come out bright and zingy,  I quite like it in the end, ONE day I shall do a pastel coloured creation... yer right! lol   He is so cute though... I might have to give this to myself, as 'im indoors said we weren't doing Valentine's this boo, I'm sure he doesn't mean it (yes he does),  but as I am already spoilt rotten I forgive him! (nearly)

The flowers, leaves and sentiment were stamped with Copics, pen to stamp, blender sprayed onto card, stamp placed on card, an interesting technique which Wendy Kadzidlo taught me recently.

Coloured with Copics, and used the blender pen to create fur.
Thanks for stopping by..... I might even enter him into a challenge or two, he deserves it! lol xxx

7 kids challenge - something old something new

Love is in the air

Well what a beautiful day in Suffolk,  sunny and very cold, about -9..  But a great day to take a photo.. my little shy fellow is trying to tell someone special that he loves them, lift the tag and it says "I love you", he is so shy!!  This is my DT entry for this weeks challenge over at Mayzy Art Blog her designs are F A B U L O U S !  Go check out her digi shop for some lovely lovely stamps. Just right for colouring with Copics, of course!  I also used Raspberry Road designs for the background papers, they are from the "Always and forever" papers, a bit of Tim Holz core'dinations,  flowers from my local craft shop sizzix framelits butterflys and flowers.

Thank you for stopping by.  Big crafty hugs xxx

Not mushroom here

Good afternoon all!  Today I have challenged myself to making a generic welcome to your new home card... yes well, the pink had to come into it.. I blame the papers I chose!!!!  Anyway I think it could go to a man, if he was in touch with his feminine side. My mission in 2013 is to make every card, home decor item count... All last years creations are going to my local Hospice for them to sell.  Worthy cause I know, but this year I want to only make things which will be useful to me... mind you my work continues for our Soldiers abroad.

 and inside too,  another New Years resolution, it makes such a difference.

Thanks for stopping by. xxxx
