Twilight Card.......

I was asked to make a Twilight themed card, so came up with this.  A Greeting Farm Digistamp coloured with my Promarkers and some stickles for Edwards sparkle!  The black dotty paper is from a chocolate box...others are from my scrap box....embellishments from my stash.
Off to bed now...I pulled a muscle in my back the other day and it's still pretty achy so I am off with my hot water bottle!
See you all tomorrow!

Tickled Pink Monthly Challenge..

 Oh it is such a horible dull day here today I just can't get a decent pic!  This is my entry for the monthly challenge over at Tickled Pink.  The papers are basic grey and I have used this lovely Anya image...coloured with my Promarkers.  I have also added some sprinkles to her coat and earmuffs.  I have punched a little border with my Fiskars snowflake punch which I managed to get all jammed! Fixed it tho...just popped it in the freezer for 10 mins!
Thanks for looking....I have a couple of card orders to get finished so I am away back to my cupboard!

2 Posts In a Day!

Wow two posts in one day..not like me at all! Just had to enter the Sugar Bowl challenge this week as there is a lovely sketch to follow.  I have used this Gorgeous Girl and coloured her with my trusty Promarkers......paper is Basic Grey, love all the colours on it.  I had to print an oval shape from the computer then trace it round my image and then cut by hand...I really should invest in some nesties!  All the edges have been distressed and then inked. The ribbon I coloured with  my Promarkers to match then roughed the ends up a bit.  Sentiment is from Craftwork Cards...coloured with inks.

Thanks for looking!

Tiddly Inks Challenge...

It's about time I got my finger out and entered some challenges...So here goes with one from Tiddly Inks which is a sketch....I decided get a move on with my Christmas cards and I just love this image! Coloured with my artstix...the paper is from MME and I have used both sides all inked and distressed.  The snowflakes are my new Marianne Dies.  I have sprinkled them and the edges of her Santa suit with glitter.
I am off to finish my Sugarbowl entry now!
Hope you like!

Last DT Project for this month...

This is the last of my DT work with this months kit from  Simply Create... I decided to have a go at a scrapbook layout (mainly because I couldn't bear to cut up this lovely 12x12 paper!) which I have never ventured into...but have to admit really enjoyed doing, so you may be seeing more!!
Roll on next months kit...really enjoyed myself!!

First of my DT projects.....

Well here is my first ever DT project for Simply Create......I have another two but will show them later.
These gorgeous papers are from My Minds Eye..I Believe....I don't know if you can pick it up in the pic but they are all sparkly!  The tree is a Hero Arts Cling Stamp...I have stamped it on the green Bazzil card with Versamark and then stamped one of the trees onto the burgundy Bazzil card, cut out and added some Stickles.  I don't have a scallop nestie..(or any nesties!) so I have cut out some of the circles from one of the other 12x12 papers (you will see it on my next card) and added them to the back to create a scallop edge. The beautiful lace, ricrac ribbon and buttons are all from Simply Create too!
Hope you like!

Ketto..Gertie................. card orders to do today so I got to play in my cubby!....This gorgeous stamp is one of a few that my lovely Sis sent down to me!  She very kindly went to Simply Create for me when Jacqui was having her fab sale and got me some goodies...I really appreciate her going as she is not a crafter and had no idea what to get for me...if you were there you may have seen a lost soul wandering about with a mobile to her ear!lol
The paper is from a freebie 6x6 pad by Kate Knight...I haven't added much else as it is too nice to cover up!
I nearly wasn't even on tonight as OH has only just managed to fix the laptop! The battery has been dead for ages now so we always have to use the power cable, but lately it has been getting loose and falling out (always seems to be when I doing something important...ordering goodies lol) so this morning he decided to try something to help it stay in a bit better (now he works in IT so I was not worried at all!) but that just annoyed the laptop and it decided it just wasn't going to come on at all!! Anyway he managed to fix it...but for how long I don't's quite old so probably about time we got a new one!
Thanks for stopping by!

WOYWW 66.......

Well I am a bit late posting this...and I don't think I will link it up as I am feeling a bit guilty about not getting round to visit people the last few weeks! There is not much going on on my desk anyway...all I have been doing the last few nights is making flowers...with my new Tim Holtz die.....ribbon flowers and little flowers made with cut out circles of ribbon and melted over a candle.
I also thought I would share how I have organised my punches, I don't know about anyone else but I always forget what stash I have when it is not out in full view, so I have punched them onto little squares of card and attached them to the basket so I can easily see what is there.
