MERRY CHRIMBO

Hi All,
I am popping in with some cards I made and most importantly to wish you all a Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2018.
I am off to the UK in a couple of days to spend Chrimbo with my Daughter and Grandsons, so I think it will be a bit colder than here in sunny Greece. :-( 
Luckily I have a house/Dog/|Cats/Chickens  sitter :-D  :-D

So anyway - here are 4 cards I made using the same stamp set. I heat embossed the stamped images in gold and then cut and arranged them in a different way.
I did some delicate colouring on a couple of them using watercolour pencils.






Sorry the gold and glitz doesn't show up very well, but you all know how hard that is to photograph :-)

Well - I am off now for today - I have a couple of other bits to finish.

MERRY FISH-MAS

Hello Peeps,
I hope you are having a great crafty weekend ?

I snagged a pretty cool FREEBIE fish this afternoon drawn by Teresa on the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Blog and I decided to use it for a masculine Christmas card for a fish loving friend.
After colouring the fish I covered it with textured sticky backed plastic to give him some shine - it doesn't photograph at all well though :-(  He is sitting on a pencil sketched fishy tank.
The background paper and overlay are also freebies from PIXEL SCRAPPER.

LEST WE FORGET


Remembrance Sunday is held in the UK and the Commonwealth of Nations as a day to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.
The national ceremony is held in London at the Cenotaph on Whitehall.
Two minutes' silence is held at 11 a.m., before the laying of the wreaths. 
The silence represents the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, when the guns of Europe fell silent.
 This silence is started by Royal Marines buglers sounding Last Post and ended by Royal Marines buglers sounding The Rouse. Gunners of the Royal Horse Artillery fire a gun salute at the end of the silence.


WE THANK YOU ALL


The backing paper came from an old CD of papers. Barbed wire was printed and fussy cut and a couple of poppies were cut also and decoupaged to make them stand out.

I really miss that as we don't celebrate it here in Greece :-(
I hope you all have a fabulous evening.  xx

HAPPY NATIONAL CAT DAY 2017


Hello Peeps and happy NATIONAL CAT DAY.
I have so enjoyed the last 6 days of the Cat Lovers' Hop and am now totally refueled with Catiness :-)
I have a small card to show today and some funny cat memes I found so here we go.....



This little card was made using a Stampendous kitty stamp coloured with Promarkers.


Here's a scary Halloween piece for using using my image POE CAT from IKEsART... which is part of my Edgar Allan POE collection and done especially to illustrate his spook story ... THE BLACK CAT, and how it ultimately got it's revenge :-D  Click HERE to read it.






Many thanks to Janis at HER PEACEFUL GARDEN for hosting another super successful Cat Hop. I sure had fun going round and visiting 190 cat loving people :-D    Now I am looking forward to next year.

I found this photo........ this is very much what my patio looks like at Feeding Time  hahahahahaha



Thanks for purring by today xxxxx
