Allsorts challenge #16

Hello everyone,
Hope you are all fine and dandy and enjoying your day no matter where you are or what you are doing.
I'm going to start my post this evening with a bit of a whinge. I have had so much trouble lately not only loading pages but leaving comments on peoples blogs so I do apologise if people are not receiving them. I'm always leaving comments but once I hit the button to send them it freezes. I really do hope I can fix this problem and soon it's driving me crazy.
Anyways, I have done complaining this is a card that I finished yesterday but was unable to post it because the kiddies were hogging the computer. gggrrrrr.
This is my entry for the challenge over at Allsorts. This week you AREN'T ALLOWED to use rubber, so I have used one of my digi images done by Dustin Pike. I have coloured him with my wonderful water coloured pencils, popped him onto some stitched star paper by Kaszazz. The card stock is from my stash and the Happy Birthday die cut, is done with my new cuttlebug using a sizzix die cut.
Anyways, off to cook some dinner.
Thanks for stopping by

Secret Crafter Challenge #47

Hello everyone,
Well it has been a while since I have had the time to get to the craft table but I have been able to get into my chair this morning and do a card, let's hope it is the first of many today. This card is for the challenge over at The Secret Crafter. The challenge this time is "Flights of Fancy". (So sorry the picture is not all that great)
I have chosen to use this gorgeous little image by Pollycraft (Part of the sherbet collection) coloured her with, you guessed it, my water coloured pencils and aqua brush. The patterned paper is by Cloud9 Designs titled Fairy Princess Wands. The plain card stock is from my stash and the white card is a bazzill SB. I added a bit of stickles to her wings to add a bit of sparkle.
Well I'm off to visit my in-laws and I hope to be back later today with another card.
Thanks for stopping by

Sketch Saturday

Hello everybody,
I haven't dropped off the planet just a busy little bee with no craft time boohoo :(
I did manage to get one card done over the weekend and this one is for the great sketch over at Sketch Saturday.
They have a fab sketch this week to follow and this is what I came up with.
My image, Tilda of course, is coloured with my water coloured pencils, Flowers by Prima, Rhinestones by Kaiser craft, The background is done with my NEW cuttle bug using a pendant template by Spellbinders. All the card stock and letters are from my stash (leftovers from other projects).
So I'm off, my wonderful hubby brought me a new set of draws for my papers and I have to go fill them and then mmmmaaaaayyyybbbee another card or two.
Take care

Secret Crafter Challenge #44

Hello how is everyone today?

So I have created this little card using my Tilda stamp and coloured her with my water coloured pencils and my aqua brush. The black and white paper is by The glitter stack (It does have a beautiful silver sparkle through out the whole of the pattern the camera just didn't pick it up). The lady bugs and card stock are from my stash.
Now I'm off to play with Scout before she destroys anything else in the

Guess what we got! (take two, newer photo)

I would like to introduce you to our new family member.
Her name is Scout and she is about 5 months old. She is a cross between a Red Heeler and a Pointer. Isn't she a cutie!
We got her from a fantastic organisation called S.A.F.E. . Saving Animals From Euthanasia. These people do a wonderful job in saving these babies and if you have a place in your heart for a pet please pop by their site.
We surprised the kids earlier today (I'm mummy of the year, YEH me!)
She absolutely adores the kids and I think that they think she is the ants pants too. At the moment she is trying her hardest to jump in the bath with the twins. Oh my, what have I gotten us into!
Anyways, I'm just letting you all in on the secret and I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with a few cards. I have to go save the
Bye for now
