Saturated Canary

Hi all,
Over on the Het Canary blog they were giving away this digi drawn by Krista (you can now buy it in her shop). Here is my version of it.

I used  my dcwv papers and my copics to colour her in. Here is a close up of her.

I'm entering this in the Het Canary challenge.
I'm off to a craft fair later so I'll show you my goodies on Monday.

Penny Black

Hi all,

I thought today I'd share with you some Christmas cards I've made. I know it's not Christmas yet, but I needed to make a start. They all use a Penny Black image. I love the snowman. The papers are from Dovecraft. The dies are memory box ones. The snowflake punch is a woodware one.

Well I hope you liked my Christmas cards. Thanks Sheila for having me today at She's a Sassy Lady.
I'll also have some fab news to share soon.

Distress it

Hi all,

I'm waiting for glue to dry before I show you my Christmas cards. I've also made some more, so I thought I'd show you them altogether. Today is the start of a new challenge at Scrapper's Delight. The theme is distress using inks or your scissors to distress the edges. Here's my card.

I chose to distress the edges of my paper with my Tim Holtz distress tool. These papers are the new First Edition ones and I love them.
Here's the image close up.

Gorgeous isn't she.
She is Princess 1. You receive the digi plus the image pre - coloured so lots of use.

Hope you liked the card.

Scapper's Delight

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I did. I had a crafty day with a few friends. I'll share those makes with you tomorrow as today is my turn to share with you a card I've made for Scrapper's Delight.

It's a lovely bright card. The papers are First Edition Boho. Here's a close up of the image.

Thought it was quite appropriate with all of the rain we've been having lately. I think we're all checking whether it's still raining. You can find this digi here.

Here are the copics I used.

Well i hope you liked today's card. Check back tomorrow to see the Christmas cards I've made.

Halloween Basket

Hi all,
Today I thought I'd share with you a basket I made. I was first introduced to this at our Playday on Sunday. I wasn't happy with the first one so I thought I'd have ago at another one. 

First of all here is the net of the base of the basket

I inked it up as I didn't have any black A3 card. Guess what I'm buying at the weekend !
I then put some card across the bottom

I used the triangles that I cut out as templates for the card to put on the sides. I then made a handle and put some ribbon on the handle.

You put it together like a fan opening out. Hopefully you know what I mean. I then made a lid for it decorating it with a Martha Stewart cobweb border punch.

I then finished it off with the special headshot that Betty from Simply B stamps designed for the secret pumpkin swap. This basket will be winging it's way to my partner but what's inside will remain a secret.

I hope you liked my project. Thanks Pam for having me today at The Bugbytes

Hi all,
Today is the Tumbling Buddy 3 Bloghop. You should have arrived from Trudie's blog. If you came straight here you can start the hop with Betty.This time we included hot/cold drink cups.
My partner Leanne sent me some great goodies. First of all it came in a stunning box.

Here's the inside of the box

Here's the fab cup I received. It's one of those really big ones that suits hot chocolate, cream and marshmallows.

Lots of flowers to play with. I've seen a fab tutorial using the faux petals to make some interesting flowers. Now I've got some I can play.

Lots of ribbons

Lots of stickers and papers.

Of course it wouldn't be complete without lots of chocolate and sweets.

I think I got another fab package. Here's the list of the others participating in the swap if you'd like to take a look.
