Fruity Tilda

Good evening everyone. Hope you're all fine and dandy.

We had the most amazing night last night at the Boyzone concert. They were fantastic.  It was very emotional too. Will definately be going to see them again.

I love this Tilda stamp and haven't used her for ages. Coloured her in with Promarkers and Derwent pencils. Used some Kanban card  that I have had for ages and not used. MS punch. Spellbinder dies, a craftwork card sentiment and candy.

I made this to enter into : Sketch and Stash who have a great sketch and also want you to use your new or neglected stash.  (Tilda & Kanban card)
Totally Tilda who theme is fruity Tilda
Crafts4eternity who want you to make an easel card

Circles all a round

Morning all.  Hope we have a lovely day again today, wasn't it nice to have a sunny day for a change ?

Did'nt end up having  the tooth out, it's still infected. I've got more antibiotics and back in a fortnight. The same tooth on the opposite side is also badly cracked and needs crowning, just under £200. How much stash could I buy with that? lol.

Anyhoo, enough about my piehole.

I'm entering this into : LOTV circles

Can you see the cute little starfish? It was in a yummy bag of charms, amongst the fab candy that I was very lucky to win, from Marianne.

Hope you all have a great day, whatever you're doing, back later to catch up.

Wonky Easel ?

Good evening to you all.

How time flies? Halfway through the week off work and not a great deal to show for it. Mind you, the shed's up and I've had a good clear out of all my clothes. So not too bad.

I had a go at doing one of these easel cards, I think they're actually called a twisted easel though, not a wonky one.

I'm going to enjoy a few hours in front of the TV, catching up with  your lovely blogs.
Having the tooth pulled in the morning, eek!

Crafty Cardmakers #40 Fairies and use at least 2 punches

Hi there, we have a fab new challenge for you all over at  Crafty Cardmakers . Gill has chosen this fortnights theme, use fairies and at least 2 punches.

I just loved making this one. I really enjoy making pretty girly cards, so this challenge was right up my street.

I used a very cute LOTV image and coloured her with Promarkers. I added a little Cosmic Twinkles to her wings but it hasn't shown up very well. I used 8 punches in all, 4 Martha Stewart's, 3 Nellie Snellen's and 1 Mc Gill. The papers I used are freebie's that came with a magazine last year. I did a little faux stitching with a pokey tool and a Sakura gel pen. Then added a Craftwork cards sentiment and some dewdrops from stash.


We're sponsored again by the lovely Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher for her onlne shop which is crammed full of goddies with new stock arriving all the time!  Thanks once again Joanna!

We would love to see your creations to hop over to Crafty Cardmakers and join in.

Did you notice?

..the cat hairs attached to the card candy in the top right hand corner, on yesterdays card. I didn't, until I had already posted it. When I was trying to take the pic, Ely kept knocking over the card whilst trying to get in on the act. His hair gets everywhere and he's a right little pest too. But I do love him and the other little nuisance Saffie.

Anyhoo... hope you're all happy and well and have lovely things planned for the weekend. I'm hoping to have the afternoon tomorrow colouring my new Sassy's in.

Friday Sketchers # 139

Hi there, hope everyone is well.

I spent most of the day asleep yesterday. Managed to get an to an emergency dentist and had the absess drained  but the tooth is dead so got to have it pulled when the infection has cleared. Feel better today though.

Funny how you miss blogging even when you're not well, what did I do with myself before...

 I'm entering this into Friday Sketchers who have another fab sketch.

I coloured Tilda & Edwin in with my WHSmiths pencils & Sansador.

Off to make some tea, will be back later to catch up with you all.
