Prickly Fairy

"The Holly n' the"
Yes, another song from my Christmas 'Sing-along-with-Jane' cd about to be released to rival anything Cliff Richard throws at you this festive time of year!
My prickly card today is Christmas Fairy Holly from Mo's Digital Pencil. As always, coloured with my trusty Promarkers with silver glitter highlights. I think the papers are from Papermania with glittery snowflake embellies.
Off to stroke my stash, have a groovy day everyone!

Turn the Volumn Up!!

Tiz the season to be!
I will be releasing a musical CD, in time for Xmas, of festive singing from yours truly.
Can't wait for the weekend, when I shimmy much-beloved into the loft to hoist down the Xmas decs. It's so miserable out, Promarker Cool Grey 5 skies by my reckoning, need the tree lights up.
This cheery little beauty is Christmas Package Overload from Sassy Cheryls, coloured with Promarkers, papers from the Docrafts Tulip collection, huge white snowflake sticker (that hasn't shown up very well...DOH!) and a lime green, sparkly ribbon.

Saucy Minx

I know what you're all thinking...have I been modelling again?
Well yes Sir, I have... Mo Manning (AKA Mo's Digital Pencil) often uses me as material for her latest creations, check out this one here, this was me too here and who can forget this one here!!
This is me as Little Present, coloured with Promarkers with the most lush glittery red paper ever & I can't remember where from ... DOH!
Can't stop...I have a Munchkin assignment ...

Recycled Tissues

Hmmm... it has come to my attention that there is a conspiracy in the tissue manufacturing world.
Some boxes are labelled 'Recycled Facial Tissues'...eugh!! That could explain why our house (The House of Colds) is permanently leaking in the nasal's not our lack of hygiene, oh no...!
 No...our disposed of snot-rags are simply being collected up in the dead of night by space-suit clad men, ironed flat & re-packaged as eco-friendly tissues again. As quick as we run out of tissues, off I skip to buy some more only to re-catch another snuffle. Clever ay!!!
My card today is for one of my daughter's pals. It's Balloon Bunny from LOTV, coloured with Promarkers, DPs from the Docrafts Tulip & DCWV pastel collections, with a gorge' ribbon from Hobbycraft and enough glitter to open a glitter factory.

T-Minus 34 days!!

Zoiks!! (Said in a Scooby-Doo voice)
Xmas is hurtling ever nearer and panic-mode has set in.
I've found the most beautifully xmassy papers to use this year from Papermania called Festive Frolics (£4.99 for 40 12x12 sheets of gorgeous, clean pinks, lime greens n' red designs...Bargain!)
This is Figure Eight Snowman from Sassy Cheryls, coloured with Promarkers & glitter. Xmas trees cut from  one of the design sheets, mounted onto white card & cut out again leaving a white edge with snowflake embellies to finish.

Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop

WOW! Where did that past month go? It's Blog Hop time again with the Dream Team of Mo's Digital Pencil.
Our hostess this month is Lori and her chosen theme was to 'Make A Gift' using one of Mo's images.

 I decided to make a miniature box of tissues using a box template found on the net to give as a gift to someone poorly to cheer them up. The image I used is Needs Mummy coloured with Promarkers with flitters of glitter. I've cut it out & mounted it to the box that was made using digi papers from the Valentines collection by Summertime Designs, printed onto card & then run thru' the printer again with the box template. A beautiful pink ribbon, a table confetti flower and glassy stem embellies to finish.

As the box didn't take long to put together, here's another gift idea. Why not make up a selection of cards for different occasions as a gift for someone else and gift wrap it as a beautiful present? For my card at the front I used Love Ya, again coloured with my promarkers, Docrafts Tulip collection papers with die-cut flowers & glittery sticker embellies.
If you're joining in with our hop you should have arrived from Kerttu's blog. I'm amazed Kerttu's been able to join us this month as she had a baby last week!! If you want to start back at the beginning then you need to go to Lori's blog, after me it's Julie. As usual there are two $5 vouchers up for grabs to spend at Mo's Digital Pencil for two lucky peeps who leave comments along the way.
Have fun!!

Another quickie posting...this is Kai in-the-snow from Mo's Digital Pencil, coloured with Promarkers on an embossed framed background, papers from the Docrafts Tulip collection with oodles of glitter & a snowflake embellie.

It's The Weekend!!

Woop! Woop!
It is indeed the weekend...yay!!!!!!!!!
My card today was made with a beautiful digi I've had for ages from Just Inklined called Three Trees. Printed onto white card with an embossed framed border & computer generated sentiment. The trees have been given an autumn feel (but could be adapted for any time of year) by dottily colouring them with promarkers & then adding Autumn Rose guilding flakes for a bit of sparkle.

Off to dig out my mountaineering equipment & to scale the dizzy height that is ironing pile!

On the Punch!

In a 'rare' moment of madness last week I succumed to the Martha Stewart TSV that was available on QVC. As soon as I confirmed my order, panic mode set in wondering if I'd made the right decision in my purchase. I needn't have worried they're excellent.
The background is Papermania cardstock & I've used the 'Stained Glass Pattern All Over the Page punch ' to create the doily effect. The gorgeous digi is Country Birdhouse Duo from Sassy Cheryls coloured with my faithful Promarkers with glittery highlights. I've used the Embroidered Floral Edge punch to create a border strip with silver Ric-Rac ribbon. Sentiment is a LOTV stamp but I may change that to a new home one later.
Off to find things to punch...hahaha!!

I have a bag of fresh baby spinach...but I'm confused (it doesn't take much!)

Now...are there nuts or not?
My bag of spinach was fresh, I've spent so long reading the label, it's gone off!

Sunglasses On...

Apologies to anyone suffering with a headache or a hangover today.
I've gone a bit mad with my colour choice today. Papers & flowers made from the Basic Grey June Bug collection. The little girl digi  'Curtsy' with her 'Mahoosive' feet could only be from one artist and that's Sassy Cheryl. Coloured with Promarkers with a glittery trim on her dress. The flowers are a made using  Papermania Doodles stamps with shimmery red centres, leaves are Crealie die cuts & the sentiment from LOTV.
Let your wind blow free today....

RIP Katie Emerson Renz

I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who joined in with our special Blog Hop last month which aimed to raise funds to help the family of fellow crafter Katie who was suffering from inoperable cancer.
Sadly Katie passed away yesterday with her family beside her.
More details about the fund raising which is still taking place are here at I Heart Papers as well as how to send a sympathy card should you so wish.
Rest in peace Katie...

The Meaning of Dreams...

I've been having some very weird dreams just lately.
Only the other night I dreamt I was 'H' from Steps!!...nuff said...

For those of us about to plummet into the depths of Winter I bring a small reminder of sunnier days.
This is Nesto from the digital quill of Mo's Digital Pencil, coloured with my Promarkers and mounted on to shimmery blue & torn cream Bazzill card. The star fish is a shop bought embellie, the others are real from my holiday earlier this year.
Have a great week eveyone x

Attention-Seeking Washing Machine...

My washing machine 'beeps' when it's finished cleaning.
When I'm in the same room it knows I'm there... the 'beeps' last a few seconds before it stops. When I'm in the next room, the 'beeping' takes on a more sinister sound & it positively yells at me to come in & turn it off. I have been known to yell back but that doesn't stop it 'beeping' even louder!!
Last night I left it running and went to bed hoping it would 'beep' itself to sleep too. An hour later, I was awoken to a tapping on my shoulder...bloody thing had climbed the stairs!!
...and you wonder why I'm a woman on the edge!...

I've been asked to make a selection of baby cards so this is the first. It's a sparkly, shimmery little number featuring the incredibly cute Baby Boy stamp from LOTV. Coloured woth Promarkers, papers from the Forever Friends Springtime collection, oodles of gliitter, a shimmery Kanban ribbon  and rub-on from Kaisercraft to finish.
