Fab n Funky celebrate Halloween

Hello Peeps
Angelique has set the challenge for us this week at
and has chosen 

Our sponsor for this week is 

who let us have an image to play with
I always have a bit of a problem with Halloween as I make cards and never send them as its not something we really do in England much
so when I saw this
image I knew I had to have it cos it fits with Halloween
but can be for other occasions!

Im thinking of saving for my mum or my sister as we are constantly referred to as the witch of the west and the witches apprentice's by my mean old husband and kids!!!!!

I coloured image with copics and 
used corner dies with lots of added 
swarovski crystals,

Hope you like

Im just a tad late with this weeks post for the 

(my excuse is at the end of the post)

which is bought to you this week by

who chose the theme of 


There are TWO sponsors this week


I chose Golfing Pa Paw

Coloured him with copics, papers are Nitwit, Country Gent sketch is Mojo Monday.


Having one or two problems crafting at the moment - I will admit that my craft table is always a mess and I end up working on a minute space, but even I cant craft too well at the moment!  

Having just returned home from a week away at Peckforton Castle for our Pearl Wedding, I went to work and when I come home this is what greeted me

A big hole in the floor and my craft cupboard
which by the way is huge in pieces
and my stuff all around the living room and hall in every available space

We have had a major leak and of course it had to be in my craft area - so now we have to dry the beams out so having to live like this for a while

but being a true crafter I managed to squeeze a bit of space on the end of the table (well I dumped more stuff on the floor) and put together some DT cards that luckily I had already coloured the images for, cos I cant get to my copics sob!

Have a great week Beccy x

Yellow Brick Road

This cake was made for my DIL's mums birthday and DIL asked me to do her characters for it.

I found these Wizard of Oz characters at The Paper Shelter. Arent they adorable.

I coloured them with copics and then triple embossed each figure after fussy cutting round them and then glued them onto lollypop sticks.

It's all rock and roll to me -Fab n Funky Challenge

Hopefully your reading this and its Wednesday and Blogger has played nicely
cos I am in Cheshire staying at a Castle for the week
with my hubby celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, I cant believe its been that long!

So big apologies that I am not around to comment but have promised No laptop or crafting!

On to this weeks

 challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challenges

We have the fabulous Kenny K Downloads sponsoring our challenge this week which means the DT had some fabulous digis to play with. 

and Judith inspired by the fab rock images has chosen as the theme

Its all Rock'n'Roll to me!

This means that you can either use a music inspired theme or image for your card
or as an added twist 
You can use a rock'n'roll song as inspiration 
- in which case tell us what the song is in your post

So come on - have some fun with this one - we can't wait to see your rock'n'roll cards

The prize is a fabulous 5 digis of your choice from Kenny K downloads - so what are you waiting for!

I did something a bit different this week and instead of a card
I have made this Canvas Clock.

I covered the canvas with Paperartsy paints and then added some glimmer mists. I painted the chipboard letters and clock with the paints too and added Mica powder to some of the letters.

The figures I coloured with copics.

 Im not always pleased with my colouring but this time im really pleased with how they turned out.

Hope this inspires you to maybe try something a bit different
