Hello Everyone...

Well..part of the problem with my PC was my most favourite game ever " backgammon"..
I was getting on line and playing against the computer [and he cheats..]...and my PC did not like it at all and would shut down and cause many problems now he gets turned of every night to rest and all is well at the more Backgammon.

Here tonight to share a card using another image that was certainly not mean't for Christmas but with a few changes with colours...hey presto!.

These cheeky little fellows are from "Emerald Faeries" called "The Larakins" 

Just coloured them in Christmas green and red..and there you go.

Frolicking Fairies...what could be cuter...

Papers from" Rosies Studio - Basics"...added some very stiff florist netting and my new holly die from "Couture Creations Intricutz dies" [without the baking paper now] and added some red berry beads.
Copics were YG03 - R27 - and a green faber Castell pencil for shading...

That's me done..we are just having a thunder and lightening storm and Harry is trying to get under my desk...the storm is coming from the south which is chilly over here, but better than the heat we have been having..just a bit more noisy..

Thanks so much for stopping by...will see you tomorrow.

Hello Everyone...

I'm having PC issues again and cannot stay connected for too long as the computer shuts me a real headache ...

It is very early Thursday morning here and going to get this  post done and into cyber space before I'm disconnected...
My son is taking me shopping for a new PC in the New money..his advice.

So today it is Delightful Thursday   and time for me to share another wonderful image from the..
Digital Delights Store

Meet Snowflake Sweeny

There he is...coloured with Faber Castell pencils and copics...

Cute huh!

I made a sign post with the Digital delights "Holiday Greetings" sentiment..

Lashings of snow on the Marianne creatables fence..pom pom trims and MC trees which I embossed through a cuttlebug folder and punched out small  snowflakes..

This card  is going to one of the children, where I had been working..they all hit my soft spot really, and walking past their house the other day the kids were in the sandpit out the front and they called out" hello"..and " when was I coming back"..awww..that touched me.

Awww moment over..I need to get going as my PC is starting to roar like a boeing..

Hello Everyone..

Thursday today and time for an inspirational post for Digital Delights 

This week I was able to play with Christmas Saffi ..

So very cute and such fun to colour and if you like her to come to your house you can buy her HERE

I used copics for this image and of course lashings of glitter.

I love the little eyes on the reindeer and the surprised look on the wee girl..

Oop's..the bow went limp..papers from MME "Be Merry" and I made the snowmen 3D along the bottom...

The snowflakes I punched out in red cardstock and added clear glitter which made them sort of gold.

The "Holiday Greetings" sentiment is from Digital delights too..and the ribbon from my stash.

So there we go..

Had my hair cut today and I feel  like a new person.

Hello Everyone..

Yesterday I made a boo boo and called my image "Ballerina Bobbi" was supposed to be "Ballerina Abi"...apologies to "All dressed up."

Another day is half way through here and had a cancellation for this afternoon so thought I would whip home  and put my vintage Christmas card up before I get my haircut.. I was asked to make this card and a 70th Birthday card for the same Lady...

The gorgeous image is from "The Graphics Fairy"...and it printed out so pink and I could not alter it.

Lots of stuff going on here...the papers are Couture Creations" Vintage Christmas"

The holly across the top is actually the baking paper I used to help get the  light cardstock out of the die...but it didn't work, so used the baking paper

Close up of image....

And the side view..everything was from my stash..the music brad from a candy I won a long time ago..the velvet brown bow from "My Lady"..

The large snowflakes were a cuttlebug die and cut them from the DP's..

So hope the lady likes it and I will show you the Birthday card tomorrow..

Thanks so much for stopping by...

Oh! great..a txt just came hairdresser just cancelled, so I will have to spend another woolly hair day ...cant get in until tomorrow...oh! well...I will just have to sit and colour for the afternoon till school pick can be so

See you tomorrow.
