IT's COMING VERY SOOOOOON :-D


A BIT OF CARD MAKING :-)

Well helloooo again,
I have been busy making some card commissions this week and then I had time to create a card with a new image to enter some Challenges. This sweet little Ellie is  from DRAGON's LAIR DESIGNS and is my entry for their colouring challenge on FB.


The elephant background paper is a freebie from the wonderful MEINLILAPARK and I changed the colours to green to go with my ellie.
Sorry I seem to have miss cropped this photo somehow :-(


I still have some commissions to make so I am off to do that now.
Thanks for popping in.

HI EVERYONE

Hello everyone and HAPPY NEW YEAR.
I have returned from my UK trip and am now getting myself back into gear :-D
I have decided to try not to neglect my little personal Blog so much so here is my first card make for 2018.
I have used the Kangaroo from LITTLE SCRAPS OF HEAVEN. He comes from the "AN OUTBACK CHRISTMAS Set" but I didn't cut out the Chrimbo hat because this card is for a Birthday.




I actually printed it out onto white card and coloured it with Promarkers and then cut the pieces by hand (only because I was too lazy to get out my Curio and sort out different colours of card LoL)



The background is a printed mining map of Oz because the recipient works in the mines.  
I have used my new Alphabet Die Cuts to do the name.  :-D
This card was a commission order.

Thank you for popping in. xxx

CHRIMBO TAG

Well Folks, I have printed my flight tickets so am just about set now :-).

 I have popped in with my Tag that I made using my new freebie from AURORA WINGS... " Yorkie In A Stocking ", which I got for spending $5 in their shop.
He was just perfect for some friends who are Yorkie crazy :-D



I coloured him using Promarkers and the background is a scrap of Chrimbo paper left over from last year. The gold card doesn't show up well but looks pretty in real life. I added some KindyGlitz on his hat.

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.
