Hi Everyone,
I would just like to thank all my followers for the wonderful
comments left on my blog, this last week and all the good wishes left for me,  I am feeling a
bit better at the moment and I just hope that I will continue improving and
be back to "normal" soon.
The 2nd Lacy Sunshine Challenge  starts today
the Theme is
Your Favourite Colour Comb
All Heather Valentins images are available from
 where you can find lots of inspiration
and of course not forgetting the Challenge page
Right, onto my card, I have used the image, Anemone, and I could not make up my mind
which  colour to use, as I have so many favourites, so I coloured 2 images and chose this one, I will keep the other for another day.
I hope you like my choice

Eleanor & Pickles Mardis Gras

Hi Folks
Not only do I still have a headache, now I have the "runs", I am thinking this is
because of my new Medication and not the horrible bug which lots of
you have got/have.  I have managed to do some crafting, but don't think I can manage much more
at the moment.
 I needed a card that could be posted in a ordinary envelope, so not lots of embellishments and this
is what I came up with, not easy for me to do a card, without loads of flowers and bling.
I have used a Lacy Sunshine image,
Eleanor & Pickles Mardis Gras and you can buy it  at
I hope you like.
I am sorry I forgot to make a note of the copics colours I used
but as you can see, it is mostly Orange

 Hi Folks

Not feeling very well at the moment, will visit your blogs asap.

Back again this afternoon with my DT for Kaboodle Doodles
and this weeks challenge is Valentines
The sponsors this week are Dis Digs
and the prize for the winner picked out at random is
I coloured the image which, is from Stitchybear,and can be bought from here
 scanned it into Craft Artis Professional 2
and comleted the card using embelishments and papers from
Unfortunately the background being white does not show up very well

Hope you like my creation

Tag it

Good Morning All

Hope you are all ok and I would like to say a big thank you to all my
wonderful Followers, old and New.  Your comments are very much
appreciated, wether, they are good or bad, all help to achive perfection,
 so a long way to go for me then.

Onto my card, this is a DT card for Whoopsi Daisy, they are always fun to work on
and this week it was a definate challenge for me.
The Challenge this week is Tag It, now I have never made a Tag, I know 60 +++ and never
made a  Tag I can hear you saying,  in my defence I would say I have only been making
cards for a few years, so I have not got round to the more complicated, and this was to me
I am not use to working on such a small area.
I have used Sheet No. 409 available from here and she is so gorgeous and a
pleasure to colour and the flower started life as a pink rose, so I coloured it
with Tim Holtzs Distressed inks in spiced Marmelade and covered it in
glossy accents. added a heart Doyle and embossed the background and added
some pearls

I hope you appprove of my Tag

Exciting News

Good Afternoon Folks
It is absolutely freezing here, the wind is awful, but the sun is shining
Well I have had some very exciting new
,I am now part of the Jems Design D.Team,
Most of you will know them, for their amazing CDs, and I am sure
you will have seen them on Create & Craft TV,
This is a new venture for me, as most of you know I usually use digi images, with
an occasional trip into CD crafting, so now, I have the best of both,  some CD crafting and some crafting using digi image, now don't you think I am so luck.
Also congratulations to Lynn, Tracey, Jo, Gail and Sandra, who also made the team.

Bo Peep and her Sheep

Good Morning All
Today I have for you my
DT card for lejdesigns Challenge and the theme is
..................... Anything Goes.....................
I have used lejdesigns images
BoPeep and Sheep
I used Serif Craft Artist 2 to make up the back ground, I also used
My Craft Studio for some of the background,  the Tree and the plant at the sides
were printed on both background cards and then matched them up .
also I just had one image of the sheep so made a herd using SCA and coloured
them slightly differently, their colours have not come out as much as they should have
the sheep are a lot dirtier than shown, as here in the Lake District, sheep on the hills
get very mucky, with all the rain.
Apologies for the quality of my photo, I waited 2 days to take a picture
as there has been no daylight,  and it still did not work well.
I hope you like my card, and please take a look at the other DTs brilliant work.
The digi jackpot for using a LEJ Designs Digi is two
The first randomly drawn name will win four digi's of their choice from

The second randomly drawn name will win
This lovely stash from

Mishelflo Creative Crafting
Here is this weeks second prize, it's the last of the stuff from Michelle, I really need to get emailing for more sponsors, but things have been so manic I haven't had much chance, the prize from ewe 2 can craft is still unclaimed so could you ask them if they would like to use it as another sponsorship please hun xx
includes a 6x6 paper pad, 2 packs of tags and 2 mini albums
