A digi lo


This is a lo I have put together tonight using a freebie digi kit by A Work In Progress (Vicki) the kit is actually called My Friends Wedding but I loved the colours and elements and thought it worked well with our tops. This is actually one of the few photos of me that I dont mind, usually I strongly dislike them! tfl

Dotties World Challenge - Fathers Day


Well over at Dotties World this week the challenge was to make a Fathers Day card well I had actually already done mine so instead I put together a scrap book page, now I know I'm cutting it fine but I had actually planned this all week but when it came to printing the papers it turns out my coloured ink is on the way out and printed all the colours wrong so as a quick thought I put it together as a digi page, but I will eventually put it together as a proper paper page for the album. The papers are Raspberry Road a freebie kit from ages ago, the image is George and is actually the christening picture which I have altered slightly to fit with my page and the sentiment is from the freebie pack that Karen very kindly offered. A couple of the pics are very early ones of Ria and they remind me of how small she really was, she weighed in at 4lb 12oz (she was 2 months early!) anyway sorry to leave it til the last minute yet again! TFL x

Dotties World Challenge - Holey


over at Dotties World this week the challenge was to use a charmed download and have holes somewhere, well I know I'm leaving it til the last minute again but I promise you I have been working on this for a couple of days in between working. It is an 18th card for our neice who is having a little bit of a do tomorrow night, she actually turns 18 on Monday and her parents are paying for her and her boyfriend to have a holiday in spain later this month so how could I not use Holly in Spain for this card, coloured her with whispers (apart from the skin tones and I used my new copic ciao baby skin pink! also got flesh pink but that seems quite dark but I'm still playing!lol) The background paper is Artylicious Filigree Fusion cd and reminds me of spanish tiles my hole is the one cut for the 18 spinner using my nesties and then I added some little silver fans, also tried a wash with sakura stardust pens on the fan and I'm pleased with the result. Anyway TFL and now I'm off to bed as I've got an early shift tomorrow.

Friday Sketchers #55


Its been a while since I managed take part in a Friday Sketchers Challenge but I managed it this week! I have used papermania paper, daisy e-z rub ons from Royal & Langnickle (had 'em in my stash forever!) coredinations cs, nestabilities, little bee buttons from my stash, the sentiment is a papermania one and the image is Pretty Dottie from the Front to Back collection over at Charmed Cards & Crafts coloured with wc pencils (but no water added)TFL I'm now off to bed as I seem to have lost an hour somewhere so if anyone finds it please make good use of it!lol

2 challenges in 1 card


Seems like ages since I've sat down and made a card. This one started last night but I got to a certain point and couldnt get no further with it it just wasnt uite coming together right then I got up this morning looded at it and hey presto some new ideas came to me and I managed to get it finished and looking how I was expecting it to too! the challenge over at CCT was Nip & Punch - Get your punches and die-cuts out and at SCSC its BLING - we would like to see gems and sparklies on your creations. Ok so I didnt use gems but my papers (doddlebug Inc) are sparkly/glittery and my cs is papermania Gemstones (shiny bit like Bazzil Bling I think) so I hope that counts for bling and as for die cuts and punches well I loved this challenge as it made me think about and sort thru some bits and pieces that I havent looked at for a while! I have used the teddy sizzix die (green) amd the tags and number 1 are sizzix DoodleTag numbers & more set and then I added a couple of little punched teddies and the mats are of course nestabilities. The rectangle one at the back was going to be bigger but didnt have enough cs left so experimented and am actually quite pleased with the result, ribbon and breads from my stash. TFL - wow that was a long post! And now a quick apology from my previous post, I used abbreviations and didnt really stop and think that some people might not know them so PSE5 is Photoshop Elements 5 which I use for my digi scrapping and Netbook is my mini laptop, the screen is only 10inches wide and I love it, will post a pick of 'Samson' later.
