The perfect day.

Morning - Have you seen the new challenge at I love promarkers -Our challenge is to use Embossing and the sponsor is Bugaboo. I have used an image called PoppiPenguin - Water Toy


I have used a Spellbinders embossing folder and I used Versa Mark inks to colour the waves which were die cut using My Favourite things scalloped stitched edge di. I used a  lawn fawn large stitched circle die, and attached it all together on a Round base card. I added some stardust stickles to the waves and finally a greeting sticker from Echo park Swim collection.

Looking forward to seeing all your entries into the challenge to win a fab prize!
Good luck!!

Some Bunny Loves You.

Hello -  Hopping by to show you my latest card for Dr Digi using the Cuddly Critters again. This one is called Rabbit. I'm trying to practice my fur colouring as its a bit of a sticking point for me so I coloured this little chap up with Prismacolor pencils on a Kraft card base. I also treated myself to a new white pen and wow - its brilliant!!
I thought would add a cute little sentiment and then I could use this as Valentines card... wonder who will be the (un)lucky recipient???


I used Echo Park Dot and Stripes collection paper and just cut little flags. And Lawn Fawn Harolds ABC to stamp the greeting.
My new with pen added the dots in his eyes, nose and a little on his teeth. The pen is a 0.7mm from Posca and its not a roller ball end so doesn't get clogged up by the waxiness of the pencils.

I used these pencils -
White, Cloud blue PC1023, PC904 - for white shading.
Fur - PC 1060, 1063, & 1065 which are  20% / 50% & 70% Cool grey .
I used Pink PC 929 & Blush pink PC 928 on his nose and ears.
For the grass I used various greens including PC 989 Chartreuse, PC913 Spring Green, PC912 Apple Green, PC 909 Grass Green.

Thanks for Hopping by!!
See you soon,

Afternoon - It's the first challenge of 2018 for All Dressed Up blog and I have made this card for my new niece (Is she my niece if its my Husbands sister's baby??)

The challenge is always anything goes with an All Dressed Up image and I have used Little Treasure

It is all mounted onto pink bazzill card. I used My Favourite things inside outside stitched square die on the image and a dienamics banner die for the name. The letters are from My Minds Eye essential collection. The numbers for the date of birth are from Doodlebug and I used a Spellbinders heart die and attached a little wooden elephant embellishment. I also added some little gems and some Wycinanka hearts which I filled a couple with Star dust stickles.

Alistair the Alligator

Good .... Afternoon (Blimey where has this morning gone??!)

Todays Dr Digi card is using Alistair the Alligator. 
I've never coloured him up before and wanted to practice doing texture on his skin (Do Alligators have skin??) Anyways - I coloured him and them once the shading was added - I used white pen and the colourless blender pen to try and make him look a little "bumpy". I think it turned out ok although it maybe doesn't show as well on the photo as it does in real life.


The background paper is from My Favourite things Plaid Patterned Merry & Bright. The little flag greeting I cut from white card and stamped with Paper Smooches greeting. The three little green pearls are from Doodlebug.

I used these promarkers to colour Alistair -
Leaf green, Charteuse, Grass, Lush Green & Forest Green
Summer Sun, Gold, Orange 
His eyes are Cloud Blue
His claws were done with Cool Grey 1, 4 & 5

Right off to try and make this Sunday afternoon a little more productive than Sunday Morning (But relaxing and being lazy is what Suandays are for right?? )

New beginnings

There is a new challenge starting today at The Paper Shelter blog and the theme is New Beginnings. I have used an image called A Papercraft fun 
The reason being that I got new pens for Christmas... I got my first set of COPICS! So excited.. I have umm'ed and argh'ed about them for ages as they are expensive but the Husband bought me a pack of skin tones and I was sold as soon as I used one - that brush nib!! Its brilliant! So I then bought another two sets. I'm still a long way from having a full set but I will get there eventually.

 The patterend paper is from Pink Paislee Fancy Free collection and I used a MFT Dienamics banner which I attached letters from Websters pages stickers on. I also used a die to die cut the "good times" The Image I die cut into a panel using  Mft wonky stitched rectangle. Finally  I added some enamel flowers from My Minds Eye Just Gorgeous collection.

I haven't recorded what Copics colours I used as I was just playing and experimenting really but I will start doing soon.

Im looking forward to seeing all your "new beginning" creations!

The Two of Us

So I have been loving  playing with this image and I know christmas is done but I still have so many images and ideas I want to play with. So I have been playing with this image from Stamping Bella  called Polar Bear and Mousie Stuffies and how it looks on Kraft.  I love this image as the size difference is about right for me and my Husband!
This first one I coloured used Prismacolour pencils and I am pleased with how it turned out. I think he looks quite fluffy!! I particularly love his little paws!! I added a little liquid pearls to make dots and a little stickles on the mouse' hat.

This one I coloured with promarkers and then fussy cut the image and attached it to the kraft base. The little strip of paper is from Lawn Fawn Snow Days. I added some red twine and a little chipboard snow flake

I hope you like them!
I have more Christmas to play with yet before I pack it away for another year so Sorry! (Not really sorry!!)
