Hello everyone...

Phew, it is so hot today, and I swore I would never complain about the heat after a long coldish Winter..[ but I lied ]..

Look what I have accomplished after my first set went to sales when they shouldn't have...

haha!!...  no one will find these cards, I have hid them well, and hope I remember where I hid them before December 20th...

But I will share a card with you that I made for the youngish man I look after and have for a long time now..he is the nicest bloke ever..BUT..the most disorganised and

So here is his very untraditional card as he loves white tigers and has them all over the and stuffed toys, even his duvet..

I found the image on the net..printed him out just as he was but added white paint splatters for extra snow..isn't he regal.

Added cheese cloth and corrugated cardboard box behind to give him plenty of dimension..stamped the sentiment and white embossed it...

See...yummy and thick and NOT going through the post..

Hello Everyone..

Yes, it is Monday and my first day back at work after 10 days..and very lucky to have an easy day as some clients are away, so just cruised along...My lady [yep!..still going]..well, bless her, her memory is so bad that she knew I was away but sort of forgot and it was like every other day to her, just so glad it was me she said...poor old dear...but she is well, and still going strong...or doing her best to..

Here today with my HOSTESS MONDAY POST sharing an easy step stair card  using some more fabulous images from DIGITAL DELIGHTS

We have...Winter Bobby Bluebird ........Ornamental Owl   ...and   Snowflake Sweeny 

All of these guys coloured with Copics..Reno Markers..and Faber Castell pencils..

There's a side view...showing the steps and MB trees with Couture Creations reindeer..who is bounding through the snow mounds that I hand cut out and embossed through the Swiss dots folder.

A close up of Winter Bobby Bluebird and Snowflake Sweeny...and all the snowflakes were cut with my snowflake punch, who really rejected the thickness of the glittered cardstock, but somehow managed to cope...

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

See you tomorrow..

Hello Everyone..

Thursday has rolled around again and time for my inspiration piece using more of those precious images from DIGITAL DELIGHTS ..

This time I used these lovely Autumn cuties..ACORN FALL SET .. and made another canvas..

Yep...another tree, this one even had very cool branches, but I added so many leaves on it you can't see them, but I love the leaves die from Spellbinders..cut on odd bits of coloured cardstock from my scrap box, and a scrapping of gold paint on some of them...

The little Mouse in his basket of acorns is so cute...coloured with Faber Castell pencils..

There is the little girl and her pumpkins and sunflowers...coloured with Copics and pencils..
The mushrooms were a freebie from somewhere..[sorry I forgot where..]

And the final picture is a side view..showing the little plastic bird fighting his way through the leaves to get to his nest..

So there we can check out my teamies fabulous designs HERE if your surfing and need a smile..I'm still on holiday and loving every minute of it..just at home.. crafting and a bit of gardening, watching rubbish on TV and eating junk..

Hello Everyone...

Brrr...a bit chilly today, but I'm home on holiday for this week and loving every minute of it..

The dog..[ Harry].. gives me such a look when I open the door...he takes two steps forward to go out and at least 11 back, then goes to the other door thinking Summer may be there..but is raining both sides of  the house..poor Harry.

Today I'm here to share my mid way inspiration post for Where the heART is  ...lots of gorgeous entries so far..with an Anything Goes / "Winter Blues" theme..

I have another canvas to share...

This image is one from our sponsor Lacy Sunshine and the image is called Snow Bunny 

The background was primed with Gesso then a Blue Gelato rubbed all over with my fingers..

I then made the tree with masking tape and a branch for her to sit on...and painted it with acrylic paints.

Added some snow here and there...and lots of dies cut snowflakes with pearl centres...

A close up of the image and no idea why it went yellowy... but her wings are dripping with glossy accents and I added the tiny gems [finger nails adornments] and sparkled up her tights..

All her trims had the flower soft treatment to give a fluffy look..

There we go...all done..I'm off to find something to thank you so much for stopping by..
and thank you for the fabulous comments on my birdhouse below..much appreciated.

Hello Everyone..

Another week gone by...where is the time going...

Have a bird house to share today...

Was going through some craft magazines and came across this template, so thought I would have a go and just printed it on plain white know, just to see if I could do it or not..

So there it is..the roof went a bit I punched out heaps of  1"circles and tacked them down like tiles..they were crooked too..but I was still playing and not sure if I would even share it.

The tiles then all started to lift... so had to go over it with matt medium and that stuck the little suckers down..they weren't moving now!!

Now I had a white boring birdhouse that was crooked with a heavy well glued out came the masking tape...again.

On went the tape..and this actually made the house stronger..

Then the painting procedure started...I love the painting bit...paint and water...more paint and water until it looked like bark...

Then came the splatterings of white paint...holly dies and berries, and the lovely little bird made out of hessian and calico..with some snowflakes glued on for good measure...

The thick crunchy sparkly roof was coconut and glitter and lots of glue....

And there's a shot a little bit closer...not too close as you will see my glue

A lot of fun to make and may even make more for different seasons...
