Hi all,
I trust all this summer fun is finding you crafting and happy. I am just about ready for the kids to go back to school. With the third and finally little man off in two weeks it is going to be a fun time.

This is another card to did a while ago for my friend's birthday, which is coming up again so there is another card I need to make. What a shame I need to go play in my room....;)
This little guy is from Magnolia as is the fence I think. I first just put him behind the fence but without his little nose sticking out he just looked strange. So a little bit of papertole he looked much better. 

I coloured him in with copics and the background was with chalks.

Paper was from a retired Stampin Up DSP. I think it was Always Sweet range. 

Thanks for looking.

Merry Christmas

Finally one for the day is my Christmas cards for 2011.

I finished the eveyone ones  back in May but I still hardly managed to get the other ones done. The ones you want to give extra special ones to. Like mums and even mother in laws and GRANDMOTHERS! She was not impressed. :/ Oops 

I have to make her something special soon. I'm going up to see her at the end of Jan!
Both stamps are Stamp it. Clear embossed and then sponged with Broken China distressed inks. Loopy punch is a Stampin Up.

Now I have to go figure out what I am taking to a ATC night. I am thinking about using embroided ribbon roses but I haven't done these for a few yrs so it will b a search to find a book I have. Oh well. 

I plan to play with my new photo studio thing :/ tomorrow and a card I made over the weekend.

Thanks for looking.

Ever wished...

Have you ever wished you  can turn back time and remove some of your old cards you did in the beginning?? Sometimes think what on earth was I on...... With going thru the photos that I want to upload I have certainly discovered the "OH MY  GOSH what was I thinking .." cards.

This was not one tho. lol  It just made me think how far we come in our travels....
(Woo hoo imagine when I start taking photos with my new toy....)

This card I made a few years ago. I made a proto type one and this one is because someone loved it soo much she decided I had to make her one too. Looking pretty plain soo far....

This card was before copics changed my colouring life. hee hee (and I had reinforcements on my nails! :D ) I think I coloured it with watercolours. The little dog pops out. All stamps are Ferntreegully Stamps.


I can't believe how cold it is here for winter OH MY GOSH! I have jeans on and a jumper. :/ 

A package arrived today and it's exciting. I have a portable photo studio, I think they are called so I can get the most out of my photos of my cards. Now I just have to figure out what part vercos onto which! lol

I have been playing with all my photos so I can get some old ones uploaded and get things in here that I want to. 

First one is my sister in laws birthday card. I was having a play with stepper cards.
Yes,Yes they have no mouth or nose but I just love Magnolias. You have give them the expression you want. A friend found the instructions for this in a magazine and couldn't figure out how it went together so I thought I would give it a go.

All are coloured with my copics. The Jeans were done by colouring it all then coming back over with the blender pen to add the definition and texture. I had to convert a "Christmas Present" into a birthday present.

I love the reds and blues together.

Thanks for looking.
