Patchwork Owl

Where has the Summer gone today?!  Yesterday was lovely and warm and sunny, today even though it is quite warm it has been overcast all day, oh wait....the sun has just poked his head out!  And about time too!

I brought a craft mag the other day and the freebie is a set of cute animal stamps so I made this card with one of them:

The image is coloured with Promarkers.  The blue cloud paper is from a pack of papers that was a freebie with a craft mag.  The patchwork paper is Boofle Designstax.  The sentiment is from a CD and everything else is from stash.

Green Fairy

Hello Bloggers, what a lovely day it is!  Warm and sunny, just like Summer is supposed to be and the best thing is, I am not working today!  Me and Roly have been outside enjoying the weather and he is now sat under my chair fast asleep, such a tiring day for him!

Here is a card I made over the weekend:

The image is a Wee Stamp called Silver Fairy.  I have coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and her wings are glittered.

Everything else is from stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafting Musketeers : Stamped Image
Without Words : Femme Fatale

Pink & Purple

Hello everyone, its been ages since I have taken part in any challenges so I have decided to enter the Without Words challenge this month and the theme is colour using pink and/or purple with green.  

I have used a Wee stamp called Dreamy Dragon and coloured him with pencils.  Everything else is from stash.

I thought I would share this picture with you and hopefully it will give you a chuckle!  Every year where I live there is a 'drag race' which is in aid of our local Hospice and it is for men only to enter and dress up as women!  It is such a lot of fun and I think its wonderful that the men are willing to dress up for charity!  This year our neighbour and a couple of his friends have decided to enter and they have already raised a lot of money between them so well done to them!  This is the photo that I took this morning before they went off to the race.  My neighbour is the one in the pink wig:

Go ladies!

In The Garden

Hello lovely bloggers!  Hope everything is going ok with you all!  

Its the 1st day of May and also time for the Crafty Little Fairies Challenge!  This month the challenge is In The Garden.  Must say I am not a gardener, I really wish I was, my garden has pebbles and a stone circle, but I have got planters and I am waiting for some lovely dwarf buddleias to arrive which will hopefully attract butterflies into our garden, just don't see enough of butterflies so fingers crossed!

Really sorry for the poor quality of the picture, no matter what I did, I just could not get a good image so this is the best of a bad bunch!

The image is from Lili of the Valley and coloured with Promarkers.  Everything else is from stash.

Do pop over and join us, would love to see your creations!

It has certainly been cold enough here for snowballs this last week!  Its been very cold and not helped by that awful smog which made it even more cold and very dull, just like winter - brrr!  Where has Spring gone!  I hope its warmer where you are!

And feeling quite chilly today I decided to enter this card into the Winter Wonderland Challenge: 

The image is a stamp by Wee called Angelica and has been coloured with Spectrum Noir pens.  The card and glitter paper are all from stash.

Add A Tag

Hello lovely crafters, its that time of the week again for Crafty Little Fairies Challenge!   This week the theme is Add A Tag and this week we are being sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and the winner will receive a £10 voucher so well worth entering!  

My design team card is as follows:

The stamp is from the Bebunni range by Crafters Companion and called Special Friend.  I have coloured the image in with pencils, I did not want a lot of colour on the bunny, just a bit of shading as he is quite a large stamp and I decided that too much colour would drown the image.  Everything else is from stash.  I am not sure, but I think the pink paper is from an old Forever Friends pad but don't take my word on that!

Please pop over to the Crafty Little Fairies Challenge blog and join in the fun, you never know, you could be the lucky winner!

Shop 'Til You Drop

Hello everyone in blog land, hope you are all well!  We have had some lovely weather here for the past couple of days, lovely sunshine and no rain, well at least in my little part of the world!

This week's Crafty Little Fairies Challenge is shopping and this little lady certainly seems to be enjoying her shopping trip!  I don't know about you, but I cannot abide shopping, food shopping is a necessity, clothes shopping is a chore but if its crafty shopping, I can spend hours and if I could, a small fortune!

The image is from Lili of the Valley and is coloured with Promarkers.  Everything else is just bits and pieces I had hanging round.  The bow is a die from Die-namics. 

Hope to see you over at the Crafy Little Fairies Challenge!

The image is from a set by Penny Black called Teddy & Company and coloured with Promarkers.  The card is from stash.

I do hope you will come along and play at Crafty Little Fairies!

In The Kitchen

Hello lovely bloggers!  Hope you are all keeping well and warm.  I hope you USA bloggers are managing to keep warm, I have seen the terrible weather you have been having, must be dreadful!  Just one thing, keep it there and don't send it to us!  Joking apart, keep safe.  

This weeks Crafty Little Fairies Challenge is In The Kitchen and we are being sponsored by the lovely people from Whiff of Joy.

The image is a digi but I cannot begin to tell you where it is from, I have had it ages.  Anyway it is coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens.

The paper is from a CD called Time for Tea by Fee J Designs.

The green card is from stash as is the green and purple gems, which were silver to start with and I have just coloured them with Promarkers.

Looking forward to seeing your fab creations so come and play with us at Crafty Little Fairies!

New Beginnings


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got lots of crafty goodies!  Cannot believe how quickly it went by, took all that time and preparation to arrive and then gone in the blink of an eye!  Anyway, I want to wish you all a very Happy 2014 and hope it is filled with happiness and everything that you want it to be!

To start off the New Year, Crafty Little Fairies Challenge is Starting Over, mainly anything that is new and apart from a new year what could be more new than a baby!

Unfortunately I cannot remember what make the stamp is, I have had it ages and have lost the packaging.  It is coloured with Promarkers and everything else is from stash.

For this challenge we are being sponsored by:

So do come along and play!
