Spring Promarker Winner!!

Sorry I am a day late posting the winner of my Limited Edition Spring Promarkers...we were away on the dreaded shopping trip for school uniform for my oldest who is starting High School in a couple of weeks....they have just introduced proper school uniform, (before it was just black and white) so we had to get everything...shirts, trousers, jumpers, proper school shoes(which was a lot easier than how I thought it would go for a girl who lives in trainers!)  She looks very grown up in her shirt and tie!!
Anyway enough waffling you are here to see who has won!

I had 16 comments which I printed off and then my little one helped me cut them out and fold them up into the jar (she loves it when I do candy)

and the winner is.......


Could you please email your address and I will get the pens posted off to you

Okay so I wander round blogland and I see challenges and I think oh yeah I will do that one, and then I go looking somewhere else and then I completely forget to do a card and enter!
But thankfully Designed to Color put a wee reminder about their Washi tape challenge on their FB I jumped back in my cupboard and came up with this.....I had already coloured this gorgeous image by Jessica can find her digi's here
So dug out what few tapes I have and did the background and added a little wooden flower!

40th Book...lotsa pics!

Warning this post has a lotta photos!!

I can share this now as my BFF has been 40 now for a whole 2 weeks!! Unfortunately we were away on our hols on her actual birthday, but I left all her pressies with her Mum to give to her on the day and I also sent her a big bunch of flowers!
With the help of her Mum for the pics of when she was younger (I did ask her permission to share this on here) and a delve through my photo albums I came up with this book as a special memory to keep for her 40th.......this is what was keeping me so quiet for the last wee while!.....
The cover a used some chipboard numbers...coloured with my PMs and a coating of Crackle Glaze

Page 2.....a wee diecut teddy and some washi tape

Page 3.....some doodles and a wee button

Page and stickers

Page 5.......a rolled flower

Page 6.....more stickers and washi just have to have the embarrassing school photo's in there

Page 7...oops and the embarrassing 80's

Page 8.....these are a couple of my fave pics of Gail's wedding ...getting ready in the morning, and dancing in the evening...we changed into our trainers for this dance....everyone thought it was hilarious

Page 9.......Gail and her family!xx

Page this is where I started to struggle as I am normally the one behind the camera there aren't many pics of the two of us...this was in my garden last year

Page 11.....My BFF!! this was taken at my wee 40th gathering at my house (the day we got home from the hospital after Jude breaking her arm)

Page 12...the back page I kept really simple with this lovely digi stamp from Papermakeup Stamps

Saturated Canary #22

Bit late getting this posted....I am still under a pile of washing after our hols....I am sure we didn't go away with this many clothes!!

Here we go with Challenge Number 22 at Saturated Canary Challenges and this fortnight it is

 “Black, White and one other colour 

The usual rules apply you must use either a Saturated Canary Digi Stamp OR a Simply Sassy Rubber Stamp

I have used the lovely "Pigtails" I thought it would be the perfect image to colour black and white and then colour those gorgeous ruby slippers! I have added some sparkle to them too!
I love the bit in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy steps from black and white to colour  :0)
Instead of putting her on a card I have altered a rectangular beer mat that I stashed away after our evening drinks on holidays...shhhhh don't tell!

Now tell me many of the Saturated Canary RUBBER Stamps are you gonna be ordering? Aren't they all gorgeous!!!

Thanks for stopping by

Vampire Rose in Rubber!!

oops that post title sounds a wee bit rude!
The gorgeous Vampire Rose from Saturated Canary is now available in rubber!! Currently showcasing over at CHA with Little Darlings Stamps and stock will be making its way to the UK very soon!
This is one of the cards I sent over for the show and I went for the cracked glass effect...loving this technique at the mo.....I coloured her with my grey PMs with just a hint of red on her lips....I also used my pens to colour the flowers and the flat backed pearls.

Saturated Canary in Rubber!!!

Well we arrived back late last night after our 12 hour drive home from Cornwall....I have loads of unpacking and washing to do but there is something far more exciting to do!! Saturated Canary in Rubber at Little Darlings Stamps....these new stamps are being showcased at CHA just now!!!!!
I had taken all my sneaky peeks with me to Cornwall to colour in and now I just have to make the cards....I think this must be the quickest card I have ever made......couldn't wait to share!!
I wish I could be there as the Little Darlings stand looks awesome and what makes it so much more exciting is that 2 of my cards are all the way over there on the display!!!EEEkkk!!
I will be back later with some more peeks!!

Sunday catch up

Well that is our first week just about up here in Holywell......... So glad we booked two weeks!! We have been very lucky with the weather considering there have been flood warnings here in Cornwall! Wednesday we made the trip over London way to take the girls to the Harry Potter tour....... We had managed to keep it a secret until the night before...... I did want to wait until we arrived there but didn't think it would have been very fair to have them sitting in the car for 5 hours not knowing where they were going! It was amazing!!! The girls and Phil have had a few days on the beach with their bodyboards while I sat and coloured in al fresco!
