Bali here I come! and Candy

Wow - almost over night my followers have passed the 100 mark - now I did say there would be a candy - but you will have to forgive me that it is going to be delayed for a few weeks cause it looks like they gave opened the UK airspace so I will be going to BALI after all. YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Only thing is I havent prepared at all so going to be a bit of a mad woman now trying to get organised.

Will sort candy as soon as I am back.

New DT post

No I havent made another card YET just thought I would share a bit of news with you I have been asked to join CJ as part of her DT for CowGirl Up Stamps. Of course I had to think long and hard before deciding to join, YEAH RIGHT for about two seconds whilst I read the email again to make sure I was reading it right. LOL.

There will be a new fortnightly challenge blog, so I really hope some of you talented ladies and men will come over and join us. You can check out CJ's images Here

I will keep you posted on the details..

I am also amazed that I now have 98 followers 2 more and I think there will have to be a Candy to celebrate.

Take Care

Challenge 60 - Black Hair

Same image but coloured in with Copics this time and a bit of flowersoft for the grass.
Sentiment and footballs are from the same set. Added some Blue Denim Distress inks around the edges for a bit of contrast, but all in all kept it quite plain which I think works ok.

Monochrome, Touchy Feely

Well I'm on a roll today and have managed to make another couple of boys cards. This one is using Man of the Match from the Flowersoft Moments In Time Collection.

I made the backing paper with a Sissex Folder that I rubbed with Peeled Paint Distress Inks and embossed.
The image was also stamped and watercoloured with the same ink.

Hope you like

Challenge 98

I soo looved making this card and getting my fingers well and truly dirty!
I have got loads of male birthdays coming up so thought I would make a start on them today.

The stamps are from the Vintage Aviation Set by Creative Expressions.

I made the backgrounds with distress inks and a felt pad and then stamped the planes in the same colour inks.

The main image was stamped with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.

For the layout I followed the sketch at Friday Sketchers

Peter Rabbit

I made this one using the Crafters Companion Beatrix Potter CD. There is just something so special about Peter Rabbit and his friends I just adore them.

I want one!!!!!!!!!

Now this is someone I would like to have a Fairy Godmother to come and make all my dreams come true - I'd settle for my boys being able to find jobs though!

This fabulous fairy godmother image is also from Butterfly kisses and I just adore her. I coloured her with copics and added lots of sakura glitter pen. The sentiment is from the same set which I embossed with silver sparkle embossing powder, although you dont really get the true sparkle in the photo. The flowers were also sprayed with silver glitter spray from Crafters Companion.

Somebunny's thinking of you

Well finally got a bit of good news this week, went back to Moorfields (the eye hospital)yesterday and they say the pressure on my eyes have gone down, they are still a bit inflammed at the back but I am going to be able to fly so hopefully if the volcano ash disperses soon I will get to Bali in two weeks fingers crossed.

Have been having a bit of aplay and tried out some of my new stash that I got from Ally Pally - only trouble is I couldnt decide what I wanted to play with first and ended up playing with it all and not making very much at all lol.

This I did manage to complete though.

The stamps are from Butterfly Kisses from the Around to it collection. I stamped him with Stazon onto acetate and embossed him and then coloured him with ultra fine glitter. Have attached him to the aperture which I cut using nesties with a thin strip of acetate and glued his back on. The flowers and sentiment are from the same set, although I think now I may have gone a bit overboard with them.

Yay - I finally managed to make a card today.

This litle lady is called Lou and is from Cowgirl Up Stamps

I have coloured her with Copics and layered her a couple of times using foam pads and outlined the bottome image with shimmer chalks.

The papers are DCWV Far East stack and flowers are from Orchid Crafts, I kept the inside real simple - mainly cause I dont want to tire my eyes too much as only two weeks for the pressure to come down in them before my hols.

Anyways hope you like.
