Under the Sea


Good Morning,

Well after missing the last Challenge at Art by Miran as I just couldn't manage to finish colouring this gorgeous digi in time I have worked extra hard & got her finished for this challenge.

As usual the theme is

 Anything Goes


I have coloured up Mermaid Meara using Distressed markers/inks and have added some glamour dust to her tail as she's a mermaid & in my mind they should sparkle.



Most of the embellishments are from the July Crafteeze Collection from Noor Designs & just fitted so well with this Digi


Thank you for stopping by & please make sure you pop over to the Art by Miran Challenge to see all the gorgeous makes from the DT and of course enter the challenge.

Hope you have a lovely Friday

Lets go to the Sea



Good Afternoon,

After having a bit of a bad time with my shoulder it seems to have eased slightly meaning I can get a bit of colouring done. I've been watching a lot of Distressed Ink/Marker tutorials as I never really gave my set a chance when I bought them but I have to say that I love colouring with them now.



I have coloured up Salute Tilda who I have to say I'd forgotten I'd bought, since I haven't been able to colour for a bit I decided to sort out some of my stamps & I can't believe how many I've bought & never used (hangs head in shame) lol



To make this card I have used mainly things from the July Crafteeze Collection from Noor Designs. This is a fab surprise box that you get each month & all you know is the theme, pop over to Noor for more info Here


Aren't this embellishments just so cute, love, love, love the little bottles.


Thank you for stopping by 

Hope you have a lovely day

Having a Whimsical Winter


Good Morning,

Due to my lovely shoulder issues I am so late in posting my card for the Winter Wonderland Challenge but as we are on our Summer break at the Challenge I'm still in time :-)

Right our theme for the month is:

Show us your Gold/Silver and or Use an embossed background
A theme that gives you so much scope you might even make two.
 Please remember Christmas projects only.  This is our last challenge until  26th August so it gives  you plenty of time to decide what you want to do.  We are restricting the number of submissions to 3 per person. 
We have three fabulous sponsors this week so 3 random prizes waiting to be claimed.


are offering a £8 voucher to use in store






I have used the gorgeous Whimsical Winter from Crafts & Me & have coloured her up using my Copic Markers. This took me an age to colour as my hand kept going numb, very frustrating when you just want to get on & finish an image.


The papers are from Michelle R Designs Winter Frost 6 x 6 paper collection. I have distressed the edges using a Tim Holtz tool & have added some Walnut Stain.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have finally bought a Bow Easy to make bows & I really don't know why I haven't had one before they are super & I just want to put bows on everything now.


Thank you for stopping by & make sure you pop over to the Winter Wonderland Challenge to see all the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Team & join is as you have nearly a month this time & as they say in Game of Thrones 'Winter is Coming' so come on & start those Christmas projects.

Right well I hope everyone has a fab day

A whole lotta love


Good Morning,

It's challenge time again over at the Alphabet Challenge & it's team A's turn again, where is this year going? It'll be Christmas before we know it lol

We are on the letter L which this time is for 'Love'. It's my friends wedding tomorrow & I thought for a different kind of present I would make her something to remember the day by.


I have painted an box frame that I think came from the Works & have distressed it up for the vintage look. Her colour scheme is Yellow & White so I had to dig out my yellows which I did find that I have nearly run out of.



I have painted the gorgeous Wycinanka Chipboard Wedding Couple & have added some frantage for that extra special sparkle.


I have gone a tad overboard with the pics but I was actually really pleased with how it turned out, just hope she likes it.


Thank you for stopping by & please make sure you stop by the Alphabet Challenge & join in as we all love you see your gorgeous creations.

Hope you have a fab day
