Black ............

This is my entry for the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge..which is to use black...I have coloured 5th Avenue with my pencil...I am chuffed with my flowers...made from an old organza bag, cut into circles and then hold the edges close to a candle, being very careful!

Thanks for popping by...I am back off to my cubby...working on some male cards for my facebook page!

Baby baby.......

I have opened up a Facebook page ( The Cupboard Under The Stairs) to see if I can sell any of my cards as I am having no luck on Ebay.  So I have been beavering away trying to build up some stock for it.  So here is one of the first baby cards to go on.   I love this Mo Manning image, she is so cute and I do love fairies!  I have coloured her with my DI's...added a tag and some flowers and ribbon.

Thanks for popping by...I apologise for being such a bad blogger...hope to be back on track soon!xx

Retirement card and no lines..

Quick retirement card that I hastily threw together for a last minute card order, using a Bugaboo freebie coloured with my pencils.

I have also had a go at this "no lines" lark...goodness it was hard!  But I do like the effect...not sure if I will be doing it too often as it took me ages!lol  Will get her on a card this week and share with you all later in the to go now and tidy up my cubby...been playing in there most of the day and there's stuff everywhere!


I am late drawing my winner....apologies....

Thats Carrie!  drop me an email and I will get your little parcel off to you!!xx

Anyone up for Candy?.........

This is a sticky please scroll down for newer posts
Do you know I thought with being off for six weeks I would get loads of cards made, but I have hardly made any!!
This is the first inking up for this woeful looking little girl....wonder what she is thinking about?
I have coloured her with my Promarkers and had a go at adding some shading with my pencils.

I have a brand new stamp to giveaway and a few sheets of paper....just leave me a comment if you would like a chance to win it!  I will draw a winner next Friday (19th)

Simply Sassy Header Challenge...

Wow...hardly any cards in the whole of my six weeks off and here I am back again!
This time for the Simply Sassy Header Challenge...the two winners get their Sassy in the blog header!
You have to match Elaine's' Sassy which you can see over on the blog... looking at mine now I don't know if it is that good a match!  I have used my Distress Inks which I have dug out again and dusted off my paintbrush!  Really want to go and visit Elaine for some hints and tips...she truly is the Queen of the Inks!

I am a bit worried that swirl is going to be in the way!

The Sugar Bowl #65

This is my entry for the Sugar Bowl challenge, which is a lovely sketch and an optional theme of blue.
I coloured this Gorjuss Girl with a mix of Promarkers and pencils, but when I went to my ridiculously vast amount of patterned papers not one matched!!  Can't believe I don't have any blues!! Well that's a lie I do have some but they were too what a perfect excuse to get on the Internet.(very unlucky to not live near a bricks and mortar shop to go in and stroke all the lovely papers!) I ordered a couple of paper pads but they arrived this morning and are gorgeous but not the right shade of blue! it was back to the drawing board and out came the trusty promarkers and I just coloured some white card to match.  Now I  know that you are all saying why didn't you do that to start with!  Well it has been a long time since I have bought any new papers! ( that's a lie actually shhhhh!)

Thanks for looking...don't forget my little giveaway, which if I have done it right should be a sticky at the top of my blog!

No Simply Sassys....

Hold onto your hats!!  I have made a card today that does not have a Simply Sassy on it!  This is a lovely digi stamp from Mo Manning....I would never eat candyfloss when I was wee as I thought it was real cotton wool! Doh!
Now forgive me as I cannot remember the blog that I saw a card with the name down the side like this......if anyone knows let me know! I am going off bloghopping to see if I can find it again!

I had more or less the whole day today to play in my's amazing how much time I have when I don't touch the laptop!lol
I had a play with my nesties and came up with these cards....

Thanks for popping by...leave me a comment and I will come say Hi!x

Strike a Pose.......

My entry for the Sugar Bowl.......been playing about with my promarkers trying to get the nack of colouring black hair and clothes again.....don't know why I am so scared of the black pen!
The paper is from a freebie Kate Knight stack and this gorgeous Simply Sassy Girl you can get here.

I was delighted to find out that I had won the challenge over on the the Sugar Nellie Facebook page with my Butterfly Girl card....I get to pick a stamp from the store...which took me ages to decide!!

Thanks for popping by!
