CRAFT Challenge

Good morning crafters - wishing I was at home crafting now instead of at work, but then how would i pay for my addiction LOL

I do love crafting, so this weekend I am off to my little craft retreat armed with lots of goodies (some new), my dog and a bottle of wine.

However, before then I must show you my card I made for the CRAFT challenge - we have a colour combo challenge this week and I got to use a Kenny K digi "Thumbs Up and just perfect for a certain little boy I know and love :)

Lots of blues as you can see, coloured with my Promarkers, and then trimmed to fit around the circle...

Here is the colour combo chart for you 

 Do come and join us and you never know this week could be the one where you win one of our fab prizes

Love and hugs

Decoupage Challenge

Hello again - twice in one week......
This time i want to share my DT card for CRAFT Challenges and the challenge is one we haven't had before
not usually one of my favourites but i did enjoy this challenge - nice to make something different once in a while.

Nw the stamp set to make the border and the sentiment is from Clarity Stamps coloured with promarkers but the gorgeous owl is from "The Stamping Chef" and is called Oohoo Night".  Bet you're really surprised i chose an owl digi to work with...NOT

I have decoupaged his nose and the roses - although you can't tell from the piccies :( nobody ever said i was a photographer - will stick to my admin job i think!!!

Have a great Thursday everyone

Love and hugs

Midway Reminder

Good Morning followers

As I didn't get chance to make a card for the Nutcrafters original challenge I have made this one as a midway reminder to you all.

Our challenge is "Anything Goes" so a nice easy one, do come and join us and don't forget there are freebie digis available and great prizes to be won.

I shall look forward to visiting your blogs as always but for now my glass of wine is calling me (yes this is a scheduled post - even i don't drink wine at 10 in the morning)

I have coloured my image with my promarkers, hunkydory spots and butterfly and freebie papers.

Have a great Wednesday, I am at work all day but then have a crafty evening planned with my super friend Anne.

Love and hugs
