Hello Everyone...

DT day for Stampfairy  today and I have the cutest camping scene to share..

This is Lenny Camping 

There he is...sitting by his fire with his beans...and just remembered that he forgot his marshmellows...

The great tent image is from the internet and I paper pieced it as there was just too much to colour..but I love the effect and it is nice and thick.

  Lenny  is all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils...his fire with copics and glitter.

The side design papers on this card either..just kraft and pale blue cardstock.

The fluffy clouds are memory box and I cut them out of florist cellophane.. and added a grass border with butterfly.

The other side where you can see the clouds a bit better...I cut out white clouds and glued the cellophane on top as they sort of faded into the cardstock.

So there we go...thanks so much for stopping by..

Hello Everyone....hope the weekend is going well for you all...mine is at a close and looking forward to a good nights sleep as I bought a new feather down pillow today...probably sneeze all night and be allergic to it.. but shouldn't be as my duvet is feathers..

So onto the reason while we are here....a new challenge at Lacy Sunshine is about to start and this week we are looking at "Fairy Dreams".. of course you can use any winged image you like...

And remember if you have used a Lacy Sunshine image for the challenge you qualify to use the free image in the next challenge as part of our loyalty scheme.

To get the free digi, just email Audrey to just write "Challenge Digi" on the subject line.

This week the DT's were given a gift from our lovely boss Heather and were each given a selection of beautiful flowers from our sponsor Petal Lu Flowers

For my card I'm sharing a new release especially for this challenge..

This is "Tansy Plumray" and will be in the Shop very soon..

I have coloured Tansy with Faber Castell pencils in a soft pink and violet and blended the colours together...her shoes and wings in a lemon yellow glitter to match my flowers....

Her eyes deserved to be violet too and made her into a blond..

The gorgeous flowers from Petal Lu ....pearls and butterfly from my stash.

A Marianne die was used as a frame on both sides and added it after cutting it in half..chose lemon yellow ribbon and the Birthday sentiment is a clear stamp from a magazine.

So there we go...a New Challenge  at Lacy Sunshine and would love to see you all there with your Fairies or any winged creature.

Thanks so much for stopping by....another new week starting tomorrow and half way through September or nearly...time is flying along.

OH!! and I looked out my window today and to my total delight my blossom tree has tiny pink blossoms all over one the other side will catch up...very pretty.

Hello Everyone....

It’s time for Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights Blog 
This is when the DT show case some of the fabulous images Wendy has over at the Shop  

This week I was able to play with royalty...

Meet Royal Frog  

There he is...a pure delight to colour using a few copics but mainly my Faber Castell pencils...

I added extra eyelashes....glitter to his spots....and gold gel pen on his crown for that regal look he so deserves...

The waterlillies were from the net and I shrunk them down...coloured with copics and fussy cut out...the entourage dragon flies are brads from my stash...papers from Rosies Studio "Reagal Collection"...just seemed fitting some how..

Thanks so much for stopping by...and you can catch up with my teamies and their wonderful projects HERE

My computer is getting quite old and playing up something awful...keeps shutting itself this post is a real quick one while I'm up and running..

I will see you tomorrow...

Hello Everyone..

Just had to pop on tonight to share a card I made to support Squirrel and her Penguin partners in crime with  their Penguin Challenge..

This cute little Penguin is from "Crafty Sentiments Designs" and he is floating along on his iceberg on bubble wrap water...

There he is...well balanced with his flippers and a pom pom on his head..a lovely glossy accents little fellow..

No design papers...just blue card stock...mountains I hand cut out and slathered in snow and a few MB clouds.. but no chance of

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

Hello Everyone...

Have  commissioned card and box to share today..

My instructions were...a girly girl..loves afternoon tea,rose pinks,likes to be a lady.[never mind about the]

I had an idea straight away of what I wanted to buy for this box and went to the $2 dollar shop and purchased a childs crockery minature tea set.. just for the tea had teddy bears on it, but on the other side it was plain..which I fixed up a bit.

We'll start with the card....

The gorgeous papers are MME " Lost and Found Two"....the big pink roses from WOC
and had them in my stash for ages...the white flower off a hair comb..and the sentiment was PC generated..the tiny gold butterfly is a peel off sticker.[and the pearls were slipping off]

The side view...

There's the box with the little tea pot....very light in weight...and I added a gold peel off sticker on the tea pot as it was so plain on this side.

The box open with the card inside...

The lady who ordered this was very happy and love the teapot...even if my pearls were slipping off when I photographed it they were back on when she picked it

Thanks so much for stopping by...I will have a poke around for some challenges before I leave for work...a bit chilly this morning but hopefully the rain has left us...7 days of rain..ugh!..

See you tomorrow.

Found  some challenges....

Hello Everyone...Sunday night here now and what a stressful weekend.

New Zealand's Telecom [Spark] internet went down...the stress of it was just awful.

I couldn't comment on some of the loveliest projects that were popping up in my reader...I could see them but if I clicked 'comment' they vanished and the internet shut down...Do you know how many times you walk up to your computer when it was off and you knew it was just had to peek and see...sheez..

The worst or scariest part was, I had just uploaded 36 pictures for...[something]...and the PC shut down and I could not find the pictures when I started up again this morning..

With a lot of huffing and puffing I finally found them in my Photo Gallery and was able to edit them this afternoon..phew.

Okay rant over...

Have a nearly CAS card to share for my DT card for Stampfairy 

This is Lenny Music  all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils....

This card was going to be so CAS...until I found these music note border sticker in a drawer and then things changed a bit...but it is still fairly CAS....

I used my music note punch [black] and papers from my stash...

And that my friends is that..

Challenges I would like to enter....

Crafting at the weekend   [anything goes]

Di's digi Design challenge  [all about animals]

My Sheri Crafts challenge  [Celebrate the Piano or any musical instrument]

Thanks ever so much for stopping by...

 Fathers Day today and I have been with Dad most of the afternoon when work was over and we had a lovely time...the food just kept coming [and I ate it] so will not need any tea tonight..maybe just crunch chocolate that somehow appeared in my draw..

See you tomorrow...
