Hi everyone,

And yet another post this week....what has gotten in to me! 
Well.....I've been expanding my colouring options and today I have a card coloured
 with Spectrum Noir markers.  Last week I was in my local HomeSense store
and found 2 packs on sale,so after much deliberation they made their way into my basket.

I've coloured a lovely digi that I bought from Delicious Doodles before they closed.
The image is called Helebore and can now be found here on Teri's new Etsy location called ArtiDoodles.

A very simple layout for me....hope the patterns aren't hurting your eyes?
  Graphic 45 papers used and ribbon from my stash.
Spectrum Noir colours used:
Flower: CR1, FS7, CR4, CR2, CR6
GB4, GB1
Leaves:  LG3, LG4, LG1

I was limited in the colours I used but am happy with the outcome
.... and I found them easy to work with.

I am entering the following challenges: 
Crafty Girls Creations #3 - Anything Goes
Try it On Tuesday Challenge - Sending you flowers

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Miss You!

Hi folks,

  Hope you are doing well and perhaps having a crafty day.
I'm a little under the weather today so I put the housework aside
and sat down to colour up this cute Wryn from Tiddly Inks .
She is called Grow a Little Love and is available here.   

Christy had a sale recently and since I can't resist a sale, I stocked up on a few digis
that I have been wanting. But before I start on my new ones
 I thought it was best to use one that I've had for awhile.

I've used a Sizzix Framelits Step-Ups die. 
These are fun to create with as there are a lot of options in the set

I keep making cards for the Tiddly Inks Challenge but somehow miss the date.
Don't you hate when that happens....but I think I'm in time for their current
I would also like to enter Creative Moments Challenge #75 - Fancy Folds

Thanks for stopping by,

Christmas Teddy

Hi everyone,
I hope you had a good weekend. 
We had a great time yesterday hearing about our daughter's trip to France and Holland.
They started their journey in Paris then drove to Holland for our son-in-law's family reunion 
A ride in a hot air balloon in France was a highlight, along with visiting all the tourist attractions.
We were glad to see them home...tired as they all seemed.  Jet lag is the downside of traveling overseas. 
Our granddaughters are seasoned travellers and really had a wonderful adventure.

Today I have a Christmas card to share with you.
I picked up some Faber-Castell polychromos pencils and had a go at colouring this
cute digi from Di's Digital Images that I was lucky enough to win recently
at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge.
He is called Christmas Bertie and can be found here in the sale section.

I liked colouring with the polychromos but need a lot more practice. 
I used a Derwent Burnisher which helped in blending 
....but I won't be retiring my Copics anytime soon.

The gold paper is Recollections from Michaels.  Kraft paper embossed with Cuttlebug folder.
Lily of the Valley tag stamped in Versafine Sepia.
My favourite MB Plush Poinsettia Corner cut in kraft then gold.
Bell charm that's been in my stash for several years
Tim Holtz twine

I would like to enter the following challenges:
  1. CHNC #242 - Something Old
  2. Di's Digi Design Challenge - Twine Used 
  3. Dream Valley Challenges #113 - Add a Charm
  4. 52 Christmas Card Thowdown - For a Child 
  5. House of Cards - August Challenge "Metallics"
