My Altered Jewellery Box.....

Well this is the little jewellery box that was in with my DT kit from Simply Create this month and it has been sitting on the shelf in my cupboard while I just sat and stared at it as I didn't have a clue what to do with it!  But then one night inspiration hit and I came up with this

The paper is a 12x12 double sided one from MME Holly Jolly...I have distressed all the edges and inked with Walnut Stain.....added a couple of snowflakes and a button.

I have not really done much altering before and I am really pleased with the results!
I am loving being on this Design Team cos it's really challenging when you are given something that maybe you wouldn't always go for yourself! And it's amazing to see all the different things that all my teamies come up with using the same kits!
Hope you like!

Dipping my toe into all things Tim Holtz!

I am truly becoming a fan of everything Tim Holtz!  This is my first go at making a grungy type card....I bought some of the diecuts from ebay just to have a play before I invested in the real thing!
I think I need some more practice! Any hints and tips will be gratefully received!
I was on his blog the other day looking at the blog video from his looks amazing!!!!! I want to go on one!

Holly Jolly DT kit......

This is my first make with this months DT kit from Simply Create....Beautiful MME Holly Jolly papers  and a Holly Jolly Stamp Set...some lace and some buttons.
These papers are truly gorgeous and part of me really didn't want to cut them up!
I stamped three reindeer with Versacolor Pinecone and clear embossed.....the edges are inked with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain and then I stamped some little snowflakes round the edge.
The brown ribbon is from my own stash.
I am going to enter this into the challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday which is Anything Goes!
I have a lovely little jewellery box from my kit that I am in the process of altering just now!
Thanks for looking!

Little Peek.....

Been busy playing with my DT kit from Simply Create and will be posting my first card up tomorrow....just thought I would give you a sneeky peek! Lots of lovely papers and stamps from MME.

Not that great a day here today so the girls and I kept the blinds shut and spent the day watching DVDs!

Beautiful Day.............

It's been a gorgeous day here in Fort William so I dragged myself from my cubby and we went off to Eilean Donan Castle for the afternoon! It was great...a few gents dressed in costume and telling everyone about the history of the castle....and as it was quite quiet they let the girls hold some of the cannonballs and showed us some secret rooms! Some lucky people were getting married there later today too!
Living here in the Highlands I don't really stop to take in how beautiful it it is in to Autumn the colours are we were tourists for the day and stopped at a few viewpoints along the way!

Simply Sassy!!!!!

Sore hands or no sore hands I just had to ink up these girls!! She is called "Little Light of Mine" from the Simply Sassy Collection from Funkykits!
They were available for pre-order for a few days and I think they will be released as singles in a couple of weeks. They arrived this morning and I just had to get colouring straight away!

I am off to colour the other five!

Oh what a feeling.......

When your dancing on the ceiling!!! ( remember that song!?)

I love my postie!! (well not really cos he always has a fag hanging out his mouth when he comes to the door!)
Not only did he bring my Simply Sassy girls from Funkykits

But my kit for this month from Simply Create!

And a set of Tim Holtz stamps that I bagged on Ebay!

Happy Days!!!

Quick little card from last night.....I haven't been doing much just now as my eczema has flared up and my fingers are mad itchy just now so they are plastered in my horrible slimy ointment that I have for when it gets bad and there is no way I am going near all my lovely papers and card!  I am thinking it is maybe the new shampoo I have been using so that is getting chucked!lol
I had all these pieces cut and the image coloured already so it was just a case of putting it all together!
I am just hoping that my hands clear up soon as my next DT kit from Simply Create is on its way!!!!

Tiets Sketch at The Sugar Bowl...

There is a great sketch this week over at The Sugar Bowl, with a theme of Autumn.
I hope this still qualifies...I decided to use a larger square card but just use the corner.  I did a couple of cards like this a while back and really liked them. if you want to see them you can find them here.

The papers are all Basic Greys Indian Summer.....this Gorjuss Girl is one of my absolute faves and I have coloured her with my Promarkers...the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards..coloured with my Promarker....and I have used my white gel pen to add some little dots here and there.

The sun is shining here again in Fort William...maybe we are going to get the Indian summer they are all predicting (I won't hold my breath lol). I really should go and wash the windows!

Kenny K card..

This card is for my cousins son...I feel old now cos I remember so well when he was born and we went to visit and he wouldn't let go of my pinky finger! (I was just a teenager at the time so I am convincing myself that I am not that old!)
Went for a sexy Kenny K lady...hope he likes it! Those lace up boots were tricky to colour!

Lucy has a party tomorrow so better get off this computer and get a card made for her!

Been awol.........

Life has a habit of getting in the way of my crafting just now...but as of tomorrow afternoon I will be on holiday for two weeks with the girls....hopefully that will give me lots of time for crafting!
While I was supposed to be tidying up my space I have ended up playing about with bits and pieces and ended up with this little first ever one! I had been watching a few Tim Holtz tutorials ...I can now see why he is a God!lol! I want ALL of his stuff!!

Now I have a question...What do you guys do with your tags?  Do you add them to cards or just keep them as they are?

Gorjuss Girl......

I love this little girl....coloured with my Promarkers and I have used lots of my little scraps for this card...........I also made a little tissue paper flower which I coloured with my PM's and then stamped a grunge flower with Walnut Stain Distress Ink...then just scrunched up all the layers.

Jude has a party today so I am off to help her get ready...goodness knows what she is going to be like when she is a teenager....6 is bad enough!
I will come visiting later...bye for now!
