FAVORITE HIM OR HER..

 Hello everyone,

Well, that fortnight has gone so time for another challenge over at "As You Like It"  and the theme this time is...MASCULINE OR FEMININE...What's your favourite?, do you have one?..I tend to make a lot of feminine cards but I do love male projects...So sort of went for unisex..


Card bas sorted and kraft card stock and papers..


Made an oval frame then embossed it through woodgrain embossing folder...


Inked it up lightly, and added a MB tree die...


Added dimension foam bits...


Popped it down and added flowers and gems...


love these flowers from Altenew..


Added other little branches from my scrap box



A simple Happy Birthday in the middle and it was good to go...

Thank you so much for stopping by..
Come on over and don't forget to tell us why it is your favourite if you link up a project..



I'll see you tomorrow..

MAKE IT COUNT..DT

 Hello everyone,

Time for a new challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON ...gosh, the weeks are flying by, and our lovely Brenda is hostess this week and her theme..."Make it Count "..she wants to see numbers..


I fished out this neat stencil that my friend Janette sent me, it is very subtle
and ....


looks awesome for a background....


Then I inked those edges up....


and found these chipboard letters in my "kiddy"stash 
so thought a good idea to use some of them up..
Glued them on in random..


Then I made an apple.......okay so it really looks like a tomato, BUT, if I cut it in half I would have put apple seeds in the halves and then you would have said, Oh! look an apple..


Then glossied this baby up..it took 2 days to dry...ha ha ha.


Great big thank you sentiment from Simon says..


small sentiment made on pc..


Oooo..shiny apple...


and there we go..all done..




Thank you so much for stopping by and come on over and join in this weeks challenge..


See you tomorrow...

LADY IN RED...

 Hello everyone,

I had a birthday card to make for my elderly friend and when I found this gorgeous image I had to make two, one for her one for my stash..


Made my back panel..


Then die cut these roses using Tim Holtz card stock and beautiful Marianne design corner lace...sooo pretty and have not used this die for how long?...,I don't remember..


This beautiful image printed out in an unusual red and low and behold, I had one sheet of card stock called Pomegranate which was made for her..and sort of matched my flowers..


Then the decision was, lace corner..


.bottom left...


or bottom right...


I went with left and right top and bottom..it matched beautifully with the lace at her neckline
and the top of her dress...


I love these flowers and been looking forward to more of TH cards stock to come AND...found more Pomegranate..also used two different die sets for the flowers..
TH flowers and Honey Bee buds...



and my two beauties..
Beryl loved her card, adored the unusual red, so that was good...

Thank you so much for stopping by...

I'll see you tomorrow..

READY SET.....GO!

 Hello everyone,

Bit of puppy love today....   



Ready....Set....


GO!!!!!...into it..

Then we wash it down with Mum,
 who will stand there as long as you feed her her treats...


But only for a few minutes....


This is the tiniest of them all, third born, but small...[girl]


This one has been sold...[Girl]


This one smiles at you...[Girl]


And then we have Mrs.Grey..what can I say..

She is so beautiful and such a timid wee thing who was getting bullied as she is different..but,
 the worm has turned a bit and she is now quite feisty and can give what she can take..

So there we go, puppies today and a card tomorrow..

Thanks so much for stopping by...

ROCKER...THEN NOT!..

 Hello everyone,

What a great day, it's raining and cold and Sunday and I'm sitting here in my PJ's doing nothing, love it..

But I have things to share while I'm doing nothing, because very soon I will be doing plenty as I have backgrounds to make as I had an idea and hope it works..so let's go..

I made a rocker card....


I used a stencil and Stamperia gold embossing paste to kick off...


Made the rocker base...


Die cut flowers and birds and things...


Moved the cat and had all my bits ready to go...


After adding my grass border and cutting it into a round shape...


I poked all the flowers in and added the birds and sentiment and it looked so pretty...


I stood it up....and over it went....oop's.
After a few attempts to remove some flowers and rearrange for balance,
 I gave up, I had it sort of right then over it went again....maybe my desk is crooked, I don' t know.....soooo....


I made a rectangle base and glued it on that...


and here she is, all rectangled and not rocking or falling over..

I'm happy with that..

Thank you so much for stopping by..hope the weekend is going well for everyone..

See you tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx..

STEAMPUNK..

 

 Hello everyone,

The first two days are done with those pesky pups and now I'm more relaxed as they are getting so independent..their feeds are three times a day now, breakfast,lunch and dinner, so they sleep and play and are such a delight...

The first day I had 2 of them in the dishwasher!!!!..I was emptying it and they just hopped in..2 were chewing shoelaces in the hallway sand the whole stand fell over, then I had shoes and puppies all over the place...the other 2 were lord knows where but they turned up to see what was going on then off they all went, bounding along, so much fun and so fast.. love it..

So today I'm sharing a simple card using image off the net, hand painted flower from my stash and sharing my costume for the party that I'm going to..but will do that tomorrow as I can't find the folder!


My base was covered in strips of papers that were in a folder as I couldn't throw them away..
just as well they were spot on for a background...





This was the flower I made from Tim Holtz and painted with Vintage photo
 and speckled egg inks..


Then I added this tiny clock charm in the middle..



The image I chose off the net...



The butterfly and hat from net too, printed and fussy cut..



Keys from my stash...



Time to start building the layers...



Flower in the bottom corner..



Top hat top right with added feathers...



Butterfly and you can see I splattered...



Gold embossed sentiments..



and here she is..

I really love this card and glad to know it going somewhere special..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
