Butterfly Girl........

OOoo I loved colouring this girl in...her hair was gorgeous to colour! I made this for the challenge over on the Sugar Nellie Facebook page which is "Funky Hair"
Now get this...I thought I had better make a note of which colours I have used and then I could post it up...but me being stoopid wrote them on the back of the image and what did I do?  Stuck the blooming thing down before copying them out again! I think the hair was Amethyst, Lilac and Blossom...but the others escape me!
I coloured her out in the garden the other day...the weather is still gorgeous here...that's a whole week!!

Then I had another mild disaster...when I stuck the swirl on I left the card closed and when I came back to it it had stuck to the inside of the card!  Luckily it was still a bit wet so I managed to save it!

A close up of this gorgeous girl which you can buy at here at Funkykits!


Yeah with Marianne and OHs help I have finally managed to get the randon thingy to show on my blog!
I had 17 comments but two lovely ladies just wanted to leave a comment and didn't want to be entered into the the winner is.....

A card and some candy........

Candy Now Closed
Goodness it has been nearly a month since I have made a card!!
This is the first inking of Guinevere and I struggled a bit with colouring her dress...but my new fine nibs certainly helped! I have inked the edges with Walnut Stain and stamped with a TH stamp with Dusty Concord.  The papers are from a L.L.Bowen 6x6 pad that I bought for a quid at the SECC.....a little scrap from my old book and a TH birdcage inked up with the Walnut Stain again.  The heart I have had kicking about for ages and I have added some crackle glaze but it's not really showing up in the photo.  The cute little bird is from K& was in the candy I won over on Krista's blog a while back.

I have put together a few little bits and bobs and a brand new Guinevere Stamp..if you would like to win it please leave me a comment and I will draw a winner on Friday (29th)

Thanks for stopping by!x

Simply Sassy GDT call.....

I have given myself a bit of a pep talk recently and told myself that my cards are good enough to start entering DT calls so how could I resist when I popped into blogland this evening and saw this....

My most favourite blog Simply Sassy are having a GDT call!! Let me tell you my stamping addiction came out big style when the Simply Sassys were released....I have even taken to meeting up in car parks to feed my addiction.....waving to you Christel!lol

I have to choose 3 cards/projects to showcase my style.... I don't think I have a particular style as I like to try all things!
So here are the 3 I have picked out....I could have kept on adding!..and I have changed them a couple of times!!

I love Carnival Girl...coloured with my Prisma Pencils.

Romantic Dreamer...this time coloured with my trusty Promarkers...Loving the new fine nibs!!

My altered frame using Bella Bunting...with Promarkers again.

My finger has been hovering over the Publish button for the last half hour thinking will I won't I!..But what harm can it do to enter! Wish me luck!

I'm back!!

Well I am back from a fab week in Cornwall...really didn't want to come back....we tried to book an extra couple of days but the park was full booked :0(
This was our second time as we went last year too but the girls loved it sooo much they wanted to back again and they want to go back next year too...think we might just have to book the two weeks though as a week just isn't long enough!
The girls fave stop in Newquay, Moo Mooz...the best Choco Smoothies in the world according to can get practically any chocolate bar made into a smoothie! I had to pinch Lucy's hat as my head was getting burnt!

A special thank you to the lovely man at the Dinosaur Roadshow...which wasn't opening until the day we left...he very kindly let Jude in for a sneak peek which she was over the moon with! If you are in Newquay please go along for a look it was fab!!

Also thought I would show you all how Judes little fairy garden is doing, you can see the original post here The original roof didn't make it through the winter but she has used one of her many shells for the new roof.
