A little CAS card



Hello Everyone...Hope your Easter weekend is going good...mine has nearly ended...quiet and crafty and a big tidy up...now if only I could remember where I put everything all will be good..

Made a little CAS card using the sweet mouse from Meljens Designs and his name is "Balloon Mouse"...but I cannot find him on the site..



I won this as a rubber stamp so long ago and this was his first inking..he is so tiny to colour..



A close up of the wee fellow floating away.....I made the balloon 3D




And the side view...not a lot to say about it is there...lol...added some pearls and the cute sentiment is a clear set from "Rosies Studio"...and that about wraps it up..

Going to enter these challenges....

My time to Craft  [Up,Up,and away]

Only 4 more sleeps and I'm off away with my family to Auckland for 4 days...I need the break so bad... so really looking forward to that..[but my Ladies are NOT!! ] and I hope so much that I can find a craft shop..

So there we go...thanks ever so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow...

IS HE LOOKING FOR EASTER EGGS?



Hello Everyone...Happy Easter to you all..

A lovely long weekend...weather is pants...so such a great day to be inside crafting...

Still have to work 3 times a day over the long weekend..but that's okay..my dears are part of my life and it is only for 1/2 hour each time for each one....so, still plenty of me time.

Here today to share my DT card using a gorgeous cute image from Stampfairy 

Garden Goblins [image 3]  from the Halloweenfall collection.




He is such fun to colour and using my Faber Castell colouring pencils that is just what I did.



I paper pieced the mushrooms and added pearls this time.....and paper pieced the small mushrooms along the bottom..[cheery Lyn die - from Annie]...




Papers are Rosies Studio called 'My Favourite recipe' and added Memory box Bamboo shoots for the foliage.




One more side view to see the dimension..

Okay...this is a scheduled one as I'm off to work soon and coming home to pork chops..yum!!!well,I have to cook them when I get home but still yum!!..

Been taking it easy with the chocolate bunnies and eggs as I got a good dose of heartburn the other night..so think I have learned my lesson...will cut down.[a bit] and buy more baking soda...lol..

Thanks so much for stopping by...have an awesome weekend..see you soon.

UP! UP! AND AWAY..



Hello Everyone....still pouring with rain here in sunny Hawkes bay...lol..thats what our bay has been called for as many years as I can remember...had to take Harry for his morning tinkle with the umbrella again..the things we do..

Here today with a new challenge with Crafty Little Fairies  and our theme..

UP AND AWAY!!....

I used this fabulous image from Meljens Designs - Pilot Puppy 



There he is... flying high over the daisy dotted hills and the trees...and through the clouds without a care in the world...

The sky papers were a freebie download from Bird.

The hills I made myself and painted the daisies with a white gel pen...

The trees were a couture creations border die and I cut it the bits..to make the trees fit better.



There's the side view...the plane has been paper pieced with Kraft [manilla folder] and the stars and the Puppies scarf...then popped up on dimension tape to make a very cool shadow.

The banner I made myself and attached to the plane with bakers twine.
and the sentiment says 'Missing you already'..

We are being sponsored by Delicious Doodles 
 
Prize = 4 digis of winner's choice




So hope you can come over and play this week...

Thank so much for stopping by and the birthday wishes yesterday..

BIRDS AND THE BEE'S



Hello Everyone...

Still raining and a bit chilly but better than the heat and drought we were going through..and the Farmers are still smiling and happy.

Here today with a card I made last week for the challenge over at A Little Bit Crafty and their challenge is "Birds and Bee's..



So I used this little sweetie from Mo Mannings Baby Fairy Bee  ...

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and a yellow copic and loads of glitter on his wings..



A close up of the cute image and the little bird at his feet is a MB die but I added legs to him..he looked a bit strange sitting on his belly..lol..



The open card.... Wired bird cage die from poppy stamps...with a bird inside.. and the stripe bow went perfect with the papers from 'Crate Paper' - Portrait collection.

Have all the family for tea tonight so better get in the kitchen as I hear some huffing and puffing going on.

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