It's practically bed time before I manage to upload my challenge - I kept loosing my internet connection again. I'm with BT and I think I shall be sacking them if it can't be sorted out. Everytime I connect it swaps itself over to BT's own 'blog' and won't go anywhere !!!
Anyway - I used one of my favourite image - 'Blueberry Delight' although I decided for a change to made them Red berries this time (coloured with Copics) - along with the fun sentiment - 'Eat Dessert First' - I'm a great believer in this and sometimes as my daughter shakes her head in disgust!!
The background papers are some old ones from Hot Of The Press and I added a small charm and and cutlery set I picked up in Germany especially for the Mousies - although I can't see them using them, especially with the napkin - cut aren't they??


Well as it is now about bedtime - and long for a more successful connection on my internet!!! 
Goodnight to you all

lovely hAnglAr or sweet Magnolia......Favourite colour Combo!!


A new challenge at lovely hAnglAr or sweet Magnolia this week - the theme is..............

Your Favourite Colour Combo

I've missed a couple of challenges with being in the middle of moving - so I ended up betting into a muddle and made the wrong card for the wrong challenge and had to quickly rush together another one.  I couldn't made my mind up what my favourite colour combo - either pink with grey or brown, or blue with grey and brown. In the end I use pink and blue -  say no more!!!

I use Magnolia Tilda with Fantasy Flower and coloured her with Copics. The image is  cut with Simon Says Stamp Postage Stamp Edge is used for the stamp and used the Simon Says Stamp String of Hearts and Pointed Feathers.
The papers are from Maja and the flowers a mixture from my stash.

Tilda fun in the Snow


I've just found this image in list of posts waiting to be published. It's probably been there for 2/3 weeks - time to tidy up my craft room and blog details etc.

I wanted to make a sort of CAS Christmas card - I used Magnolia's Snow scarf Tilda from last year Christmas set. I coloured Tilda with copics but used Cotman watercolours to create the background - I've used Cotman paints for years and find them the best results but perhaps I should try another make???. 
 I added a Frostyville Border from Memory Box and added the sentiment also from the Magnolia's set.


A Random Fan Challenge - (Must Include a Hand Coloured Image) Anything Goes

Fan-Tastic Tuesday - (Must Be Square or Rectangular) - Anything Goes
Magnolia Down Under  - Your Favorite Magnolia Stamp
Through The Craft Room Door  - Always Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday  - Anything Goes (Week 2)

Stamp and Create  - (August) Anything Goes

LIM.....................A Sketch


I'm late for my Less is More card this week - I've had builders in causing disruptions including disconnection the electricity. I eventually managed a card using a Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Embossing folder - I've had it for ages and really need to be used!!  The flower is Stampendous Fresh Bloom which I think has been 'retired', I coloured it with Color Box Frost White ink and Zing White Embossing Powder. The flowers are coloured from the inside with Copic Blue Blending Markers - the stamens are added with Ranger Liquid Pearls White Opal and the large centers Melissa Frances Large Trims Baubles. The sentiment is a ancient one which I think is from Whiff of Joy.

I hope you all have a great weekend with hopefully good weather - we in the UK have been promised a heatwave in September - I'll believe it when I see it!!!

50dollar_voucher_600px

This challenge should have been easy - it wasn't because I had too much choice of which of my Memory Box products to use. I wish I had more time (have joiners knocking a partition down  at the moment) so I had little time and couldn't get into my craft room.
I opted out on use the Memory Box Frostyville Border and the Quinn Flourish as I decided it was time to start on Christmas cards. I wanted one a 'pretty' card and used Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass. I cut the circle with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circles and added a sentiment Happy Sentiments embossed with Silver powder.

This Wooden Rubber Stamp will be given away to a third lucky player;

This Stamp is no longer available and rare. It is by Stampa Rosa Inc., House-Mouse Designs, Stamp Design of the Month, from November 2001, #469M, featuring Amanda, Mudpie and Monica.  Stamp is called: "Slurp 'n Chirp".  Thee gang is eating a bowl of Spaghetti. Isn't that just so cute, and so fitting for this challenge theme too?


 I'm late again - I can't keep my head above water at the moment.  I have a builder arriving this week to remove a partition in the bedroom - this means I have to remove everything possible out of the room - the only place I can move it is my craft room. I was just betting my craft room organized now I can't move or find a thing - again!!!

I used the cute Gruffie - 'A very Beary Birthday' - I coloured him with Copics and added Aleene's Glitter Snow - I used Distress Inks Shaded Lilac to colour the 'Icing' . I made a candle with glitter papers - the one on the image was a little small so I added a larger one - I could add more candles 
The papers are Bazzill Gummy Bear (what a great call for a Gruffie BEAR) and the patterned paper is from Maja.
My embellishments are Simon Says Die and Stamp Set - ric-rac ribbon from the adorable America Khun , the Memory Box Precious Stars. and the ribbon is some metal stuff I'd packed up from The NEC some years ago - interesting stuff - make a bow and then pull it into what every shape you wanted - the downside is that hit photographs so dark although it is rather pale Lilac.

Challenges
