And can you believe another fortnight has gone by so fast and it time for a new challenge over at..

The theme this time is a TIC TAC TOE Board...a lot of fun.

Coloured with copics and pencils and all the little flowers were stamped, coloured with copics  and fussy cut were the butterflies and they had glossy accents added all over them for shine.

I added little buttons in the centres..

Papers from Rosies Studio...

Hello Everyone...

Tuesday afternoon here and FREEZING...well, not really freezing, but just got so used to our mild temps that when the mercury drops you get such a rude awakening..

No DT card today..just a card for fun so I could join in with a challenges at WITHOUT WORDS  using the colours pink,blue and Yellow...with the option of floral

This sweet young lady is from THE EASTWIND STORE  and her name is AURORA SUMMER BREEZE ...

She is coloured with Faber Castell pencils and some new markers I bought on holiday called RENO ART MARKERS ..

I used the markers on her hair and highlighted with pencils...same as her dress and added lots of gems to the flowers on her bodice and  in her hair..


The markers are very much like pro markers and they were an amazing price...dare I say it..THEY WERE CHEAP!!...but gorgeous colours and lovely to use.

So there we go..a pretty young lady with a bit of a frown..or maybe just has some attitude going on..

Thanks ever so much for stopping by and any comments you leave are so much appreciated..

Hello Everyone...
DELIGHTFUL THURSDAY  time again and then my day off tomorrow..yay..

This week I have another scene card to share...I love doing scene cards, especially when you have such cute images from the  Digital Delights Store   to play with..

This week I have used BUCKY   and his cute little cowboy buddy,  LIL BILLY  ..

.This is Bucky...all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils....

And here is Lil Billy....copics and pencils for Billy...

The scene behind them I made using distress inks and masking.

The hills are a stamp from Firecracker designs and is actually a rock stamp...I just stamped them in a row to make mountains..the sunset sky with inks and a make up sponge, after adding a punched circle for the moon.....same with the desert...just brushed the ink over lightly with a sponge..

Added some string around the "scene " part of the card...hessian tumbleweeds...grass and a fence..and a cactus from the internet.

Bucky and Lil Billy were fussy cut out and placed into position last..

Hope you enjoy my little scene and thanks you so much for stopping by...
I will see you tomorrow..

A beautiful warm Autumn day here to fact I nearly got too hot while I was working, but I'm home now for the afternoon until school pick up...then the tea rounds with my lovely ladies...back home to relax for the evening...

So by the title today you can see that card 7 has vanished..[I forgot that I had already given it to the lady who placed the order]...but edited 8 & 9 and they were all pretty similar...

Three sympathy cards using the pretty "Swan stamp from Firecracker designs".

Number 8...all in blues....

Number 9.. mainly yellows with that stunning blue lace from my local emporium...hard to see but the little flowers on the lace are yellow.

So there we go...short and sweet today...I feel the need for a Nana nap this will pop this on schedule and have my nap before I get the boys from school..such a lovely sunny day I should be out there enjoying it and doing the gardens...but they will still be there tomorrow [and with a bit of luck it will be
