Hi Folks
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are all ready for the
New Years Eve celebrations, ( or are you  like myself and Hubby, having a quiet evening in.)
I have to admit, I always find New Year a little depressing.
My card for today is for the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge
Anything Goes, so plenty of opportunity to have a go with what every you
feel like creating.
I have used a Jems Designs CD, but, this is a very special CD it was
designed by my wonderfuly talented friend
Sheenagh Hulin, this is the 1st of many, I hope, and is called
Yesterdays' Dream,
this selection is called Timeless, and there are 11 more sections on the CD
as fabulous as this one.
and it is available HERE


please take a peek on the Challenge page, and we would love for you
to take part in the challenge and if you need any inspiration, take
a look at the DT's cards they are all wonderful.

Good Afternoon Folks
I hope none of you are having problems with the flooding, it is dry at the moment in
Kendal, but very cold, we had a massive hail stone shower last night and some of the
roofs are still covered with them, looks like snow, so a great day to stay warm in doors crafting.
Todays card is another of Digis by Jems wonderful images available here
She is called Spirit Holly, and I was inspired to colour her hair, by, the
wonderful cards that our DT Lynn did, with the fantastic Blue hair.

Please take a look at Jems Designs Web Site, as well as the CD's that they are
so well known for, they are building up a fantastic collection of digi images.

I have used Copic Ciao pens to colour her, and the background was
made up of components from
I have also used some Flower Soft and glitter on the top flower bushes, but once again my
picture taking is not so good and it does not show up.

I do hope you like my  card and if you have time, please leave a comment.

Good Afternoon to you all, I hope you are all fit and free from any off the awful bugs going around.

As you probable all know, I have had a week off, we were due to spend a couple of days away, staying with relatives, but, unfortunately, my Husband was not well enough to travel, so we have had a quiet week at home, and as I was having sometime off, from my DT crafting, I took the opportunity to clear out my craft room and give it a good clean, 2 days of hard work, now it looks so spic and span, how long due you think it will last, I would say  a day!!

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon, it is really cold here
but the sun has been shining, so that makes me feel better
While I have been "off" I have been doing some colouring,
my favouite pastime, I have just ordered a 72 pack of Copic Caios so will
have to do lots of practise as I am so use to my wonderful Promarkers, but I
wanted a change and a challenged.
Anyway onto my card, I recently bought a CD from C&C called
Just some Inky Lines ( I think) anyway it is full of digi images ready to colour
and I loved this lady with her posh hat.
I hope you like what I have done with her.
In my photo, the feathers and Velvet Ribbon look more blue, but they are deep purple
my photo skills are  rubbish.

Hello Teddy

Hi Folks
This posting has been scheduled, as I will not be around
this week
This is my Dt project for lejdesigns Challenge
and it is the 1st time I have not made a card for any challenge
I put the Teddy in the bag as the Baby Reindeer is looking up
so thought I would put him in to look down on the Baby Reindeer which is
one of Lindsay wonderful  digi images which is available here
This Teddy was last thing my Mum knit before she passed away, she was a brilliant
knitter and made loads of very large themed stuffed toys and raised
hundreds of pounds for Age Concern Charity which she was a Volunteer  for about 10
years.  He now lives in my Craft room, hanging on the radiator,  which was  my Mums
Bedroom, for the past few years and before that it was my bedroom when I was little.
I used Flocking on the Reindeer, I have had a collection of them
for years but this is the 1st time they have been used
and I think it works well and as he is a baby Reindeer
I thought he might be a bit bitty as his hair grows

the background is holly material, I bought, a few years ago, to make a bag
for my Mum

The Sponsors and prizes this week are
The first randomly drawn name will win 3 digi's of their choice fro
The second randomly drawn name will this set of promarkers From Ewe 2 can Craft
