On Sunday communication broke down all together so first thing this morning I took it to the camera vet. They will try and order another wire but have taught how to cope with it using the disc.
That was most of a day gone and now I'm just uploading my card.

LHOSM...................Use a Sentiment !!

Our challenge this week at LHOSM is 


I've used the little Tilda with Rouster, I've had her for ages but only used her once so as it is almost Easter I decided to use this one rather than the usual ones.  I've coloured them with Copic Markers.  The flowers are a mix - I think I should start listing these when I received them so I can give the correct details, as at the moment I haven't a clue which sort and size I can give details!!

Lifelong crafters Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea were tired of having to buy full rolls of ribbon and lace when they only needed one metre.  Because they love ribbons and all things pretty, they decided to open their own online shop in 2010 and make small quantities of beautiful products easily available to all crafters. Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis as well as keeping the website updated while Andrea looks after the social side,  The Ribbon Girl Blog and the Design Team. They specialise in supplying small (or large) quantities of ribbon, twine, gorgeous vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, all sorts of buttons, fancy pins, a multitude of charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape and accessories to card makers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. They stock only the best quality products and only offer for sale goods that they would personally buy and use themselves

Simon Says.................Anything Goes !!!


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is


We are showcasing  Spectrum Noir Products, we would love to see them used but you don't have to to join in with the challenge.
Spectrum Noir provided the Design Team with some of the new Aqua Markers to use and we have to say, we all really loved using them. So easy to use and beautiful colours.
Spectum Noir will also  be giving away an Aqua Markers set of the winners choice to one lucky winner !

AND as always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

This week we are showcasing Crafter's Companion Spectrum Aqua Markers Essential and Floral and then my Tim Holtz Bird Crazy arrived and that was it - playtime began, sandly it didn't end for the next 2/3 days!!
I coloured all the images with the Aqua Markers and decided to make them backgrounds.
I played around at using the Crafter's Companion Aqua Markers to use background - I took
Ranger Water color paper paper and painted a coat with Gesso. I used the required markers
 a palette, added water on the paper and blended with a brush or and finger. I then stamped on the Lots of Dots stamp with various shapes and sizes. This was great fun and all turned out somewhat different!!

I couldn't make my mind up which to use so - I used them all and have made box (well almost made a box) to used as a gift set.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Less is More .........Case A DT card!!!_

The Less is More challenge this week is ........


I chose to Sarah's card as I had some just received some Prima  which I was looking forward to 'play' with. I decided I needed some baby cards so I made a shaker card and chose an old LOTV image which is coloured with Copics. 
I added the Crystal Glass Beads along with some Pink Blush Sequins. I used vellum to add the Baby Die embossed with Simon Says Stamp Silver Fine Embossing Powder. This is a lousy photograph and will try and get a better one in the morning!!

LIM....................One Layer - Include am Animal !!

The challenge at Less is More this week is........

One Layer - Include an Animal !!

 I use Simon Says Stamp White Cardstock 120lb for the card itself and use the image from Zoe at Make it Crafty - The White Rabbit and coloured him with Copic Markers.
I couldn't find any suitable sentiment so I used to generated one on my computer.

I love making the LIM cards. I am a very slow crafter and can take a day or more to create one card but with LIM I can start and finish within an hour or so - they might not be very good but it thrills me I can start and finish a card without having to stop and eat etc!!
