So please accept a heart felt thank you for your amazing comments form anyone who 
has left them in the past and  anyone who will be leaving me something to read over the next few months

It is time for lejdesigns Challenge and this weeks theme is ..... this should please you all...


A while ago Lindsay had a competition on our DT blog, to chose a name for a new image
we then all voted for our favourite name and I won, well, to be truthful, my OH won as he
came up with the name which was Mozica, but as the prize was some crafting goodies, I won!
I hope you like her.

Hi Folks
Just a quick post to let you know I am have awful problems with my Internet AntiVirus at the moment, basically it will not work even though I

So in the mean time will try and do some commenting on my sons VERY OLD LAPTOP but it is soooooooooooooooooo slow.
so please bear with me

For Carolyn

Good Morning Folks
I hope you are all fit and well, if, your feeling poorly a big hug from me.
My card today is a birthday card for Carolyn my sister in law, we are both a
similar age ( she's a "little" older) and  we both remember when shoes like this were fashionable
the 1st time around, but, not with the high wedge, just the stiletto heel, I so wish I
could wear them now!!
I used one of Jems fabulous CDs designed by the very Talented Sheelagh Hulin
Fancy Footwear, available from
There are 12 projects  on the CD all including toppers in numerous shapes, background papers for square and A4 cards, elements and embellishments
This folder is called
Blue Jeans
I hope Carolyn likes this and as she checks out my blog from time to time I have scheduled
this to appear on her Birthday.
I used my new Silhouette Cameo to cut the shoe out,
this is the first time I have used a CD and was able to cut an image
so I am really pleased with how it worked.

Broken Heart

Hi Folks
I have just been colouring over the last couple of days and this card is
one that I made.
I have been using Velvet card to colour on, with copic and it is really good to us. But,
I have found out that I cannot colour the edges with Distressed inks, I  just cannot  blend the ink.
My fingers do not like to cut out, as you can see with my image!! but, the ink made such a
mess on the card I had no option but to cut out the image, has anyone else who uses
Velvet card have this happen, and if so, how did you overcome the problem
Right onto my card, I have used ( surprise, surprise) another of
Heather Valentin's wonderful images, this time it is
Genevieve Melancholy Moppet, and she looks to me as if
she has been left at the Alter, hence, the title Broken Heart
I coloured every thing but hair and skin with my promarkers, just for a change.
I hope you like my creation

eaten to many Easter Eggs!! I have no problem there, chocolate gives me

can buy this and many more images at

inspiration just check out all the other DT's work on the Challenge page
I look forwards  to seeing your wonderful creations later in the week
I you want to get the fuzzy fur look and are using Copics

of the blending ink and dab the image after you have coloured
it of course.

Best Friends

Hi Folks
Today I you have got 2 for the price of 1!!
I was given an image from our sponsors for today's Challenge
at Kaboodle Doodles  Ch 165
The theme is Use 2 different papers, I normally don't have any problems with papers
but I could not make up my mind which I should use, that's the problem
when using programs like My Craft Studio or Craft Artist Professional 2
it gives you too many choices, so I ended up doing 2 and I still could not make up my
mind which to use, so I have put both on here,
and you can choose your favourite.

Our sponsors this week are Eureka and you can win 5 digis from them.
