Hello Peeps and Happy Sunday to you All,
I am going all pink today - which is not normally a colour I have much to do with on it's own, but in keeping with the theme of this month I dragged out all my little bits of pink stuff to make a card commission. My friend wanted a sweet pink girly creation for a 6 year old so I came up with this.....

I used odd snippets of pink papers and ribbon for the background. The image is called Button Betty but I've had it for so long I don't know where it came from. :-(  I printed it out 6 times and fussy cut it, then layered it up with silicone to make a little 3D image. I used the same border punch to cut an edge down the white insert inside the card :-)
I used an embossing folder for the Happy Birthday banner and rubbed the card with sandpaper to make the words show up.

Thanks for dropping by.

BOO !!!! ... DID I SCARE YOU ??

Hello Peeps and Happy Monday........ only 18 days to go !!! :-D

I had some cutesy card commissions to do over the weekend so today I had to get myself back in Halloween mode and do something darker.... you know how it is ? - I can't let myself go totally to mush or I shall become a Marshmallow !!! LoL

Here is my piece done with an image called Fangtastic Vampire Girl from STRANGE SKIN (I can find the Etsy shop but it seems to be empty !!). 

I coloured her with Copics and then raided my Halloween stash for bits and bobs. I found all these snippets of paper and ribbon etc and constructed this.

I certainly feel a bit more 'creepified' now, so am back to normal LoL

Thank you for popping in

Hello Peeps,

I have been making a Fat Page (6" x 6") to send to someone and I'm only going to show you the front so as not to spoil the surprise.

I have used DILLY BEANS images on the front and coloured them with Copics and Promarkers.

I started with a piece of thick cardboard from a packing box and then covered it with some fabbo Autumn colours canvas that someone sent me as a prezzie (sorry - can't remember who it was). I stitched it to both sides using some yellow string.
Then I placed my 4 images together and printed/coloured them.
I then used the string to stitch between the pictures.

I found a little bit of Halloween ribbon in my stash and a sort of feathered orange monster thingy - that is actually a hair clip. I got half a dozen of these a while back and I don't know what on earth they are supposed to be... if anything !!!!?

I am really pleased with the colours as it can be Autumn or Halloween :-D

Images used:

DILLY BEANS   - Monster Boy
                                   Mummy & Spider Love Candy
                                   Zombie Hearts Frame

And now for todays' cutesy creepy offering and a glorious splash of colour - I thought I would spare you an horrendous gory creation today as it is a day of rest and relaxation  :-D  LoL

The main image is called 'SABRINA' and she is by STITCHY BEAR STAMPS.
She is cutely accompanied by the little kitty image from SAMI STAMPS which is called 'Spiders In My Fur'
Images were coloured with Promarkers and pencils and I used papers and ribbon snippets from my stash to embellish. The little Bat was in a little gift baggy I got in with a Swap last year :-D

Well _ I think that will be just about it from me today as it's nearly kitty feeding time and then I am going to watch some tv. :-D

Happy Sunday Peeps,
I am here with another Halloween creation - and I have on previous 'gored-up' just an ordinary little image, and I have done that again this time LoL
This week's Friday Freebie from SCRIBBLES BY SANDY is a great digi of a Pitcher & Drink, which will be useful for numerous occasions, but I thought with Halloween coming up, I would turn it into something a monster might serve - so I call this one Frightnite Cocktail Recipe :-D

I have set the Scribbles image on a background made up using a digital kit - "Mini Halloween Kit" by DECOSSE's DYNAMITE DOODLES, and  Lisa's Freebie Follower 'blobs' you can find HERE.
