 Hello everyone,

First off thank you so much for the Birthday wishes yesterday, I had an awesome day out to lunch with my friend Aileen, and we laughed and laughed and neither of us knew why, so that was fun, we had a lovely meal and a wander through town..then last night my daughter and husband arrived with cookies, BIG cookies, chocolate chip..mmm.. and chocolate, flowers and gift voucher, my gosh I was so spoiled..and off out for dinner on Sunday night too, a big family affair, can't wait..

I also played with my picture I made, and framed it up yesterday..

I may add another mat to break up the black, we'll see...

So onto today, I'm sharing a project I made for the Facebook challenge over at

They have a mood board divided into four, and I used three of them..

Colours, over the edge, and flowers..

Quite a bit of dimension..

Definitely over the edge, love doing that..

Added all the colours I had...

And added white paint over the flowers and edges as it just does something very cool if your colours scream at each other in some places the white helps bring them together..

Gave this pretty lass a balustrade painted black, then mousse rubbed over with my fingers to age it, then some white paint too...

And there she is in all her floral glory...

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

Wednesday today and time for a new challenge over at Little Red Wagon  and the lovely Kate  is our hostess this week and her theme for us is... " IN THE AIR TONIGHT " she wants to see, birds, planes, hot air balloons, which is exactly what I used in my scene on 12" long sheet of cardstock..

There are a lot of layers here, all die cuts and water colouring,
 and I had a blast making this one..

First I had a day of die cutting my elements...

Then a morning with my little helper of blending ink and colouring..

Lots of spraying [it is a lot quicker] messy, but quick..

Water coloured my birds...

And my hot air balloons....


More flowers, theses with markers for better control..

And there it all is just waiting for the cat to go to sleep so I can start glueing..

But not HERE!!...

First up, the sky..and I really was happy with this sky..

The mountains with snow caps, and a long grass area..the balloons were just sitting there for placement..

Added the wheat field and grass

Then the wild flowers and more grass along with a fence so the sheep wont get out!!??

Placed the birds here and there...

A dimension shot..

Close up of fence and birds, flowers and wheat...

Hot air balloons and the sentiment stickers, and they say..
" When nothing is sure, everything is possible "
" Live your dream with passion "

And here is my finished scene..I'm going to frame this and put it on my wall...

Link up HERE

So there we go, all done..
Thank you so much for stopping by, getting my hair done today as its my birthday tomorrow and going out with my friend for lunch, her shout, yay! then out with the family on Sunday night..their shout, double yay!!

 Hello everyone,

I'm back with tag #2 for Tag Tuesday and the theme "Bees"...

This gorgeous stamp was so much fun to play with, I have used it before but differently and used it for todays project as It should be..

Stamped all the extra Bees...

And used the matching dies to cut them all out..

Made a water coloured background...

Added honeycomb die cuts and added some splatters..

Plumped up my Bees after colouring with glossy accents..

I fussycut the bee hive and glued it down..

And added this stuff, it was off a tree, real paper bark, insect free and given to me by my hoarder friend I used to look after, well, I  still do, but as a friend not employee..

Started gluing down the Bee's...

and then added a lot more of the negatives from the honey comb, and inked around the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink..

Cut out vine like leaves and added ribbons...

A close up of Bee's and honey comb die cuts, these ones were cut from different card stock which I had used oxide sprays on and stuffed  messed it up..

Finished tag..

I really liked both my tags this time, enjoyed playing with this stamp set too..
So thanks so much for stopping by...see you soon..

 Hello everyone,

Tag Tuesday has a new challenge up with the theme BEE'S..and I just ha dto play as I love Bee's and all they stand for, and they  are fuzzy and yellow, that helps too...

I went into my dies and got out every Bee die I have..

And saved the negatives from the honey use later.

I made a tag panel using Dina Wakley Gloss sprays..went through a lot of, got it, lost it, got it, lost it,

All my elements ready to go...

Some were from my leftovers like the leaves and one of the Bee's..

Started gluing down my bits...

Added the gold and black bows...

And finally from my new delivery of flowers, made a nice little bunch right in the middle...

Then came the negative cuts...they will be good for all sorts of projects...

Popped on my Bee's.....

And a close up of the flowers and Bee's...

And the final result..

Thank you so much for stopping by and your support I will see you again tomorrow with number 2..
