OOOOH - CRAFT GOODIES FOR SALE !!!



Hello Peeps,
I have just found news of some mystery parcels of crafting goodies being sold by Fiki :-D
She is trying to raise money for a Driving Licence. With her husband being in hospital recently, she realized how cut off she is by not being able to drive !!!    I know what it's like here for me if something happens to my car... I'm stuck halfway up the mountain and have to walk everywhere to get things !
Anyhoo - the mystery parcels sound fascinating so I have ordered one :-)
You can find the information on Fiki's Blog here:    https://badkittyscraftroom.blogspot.com/2018/05/mystery-box-destash-for-driving-licence.html

I have an update on my latest lot of Foster puppies too...............

I believe "puppies" was a bit of a misnomer !  Yes, OK they were 4 months old but I think their father was a Great Dane !  Huuuuuuuge feet on the boy doggo. :-(
Needless to say my garden 'pen' for them at night was waaaaay inadequate.
They were fine all day, content to lie sleeping on the patio or where ever I happened to be and were very sweet natured. However, once night fell they became a problem. They jumped out of the pen, jumped my railings around the garden and went off down to road to gate crash my neighbour's family gathering. ! He was banging on my door an 0130 hrs threatening (very loudly in Greek) to call the Police amongst other things. Unfortunately - having been chased out of his garden, the 'pups' legged it back to my place and so gave me away LoL
Having tried to secure them in the garden, they subsequently broke into the house through the cat flap and when I came down in the morning I was literally dodging huge piles of dog sh*te and they had peed on every rug I own :-(

They went back from whence they came the following day !!!   LoL

I'm all for helping out with dog rescues but NOT when they cause this much trouble. ! Let's hope next time they give me something smaller that I am equipped to deal with :-)

I've not got any cards to show you as it is rather to hot to work just now, so I'm hiding in the shade most of the time. I have a few commissions to do next week, so I'll tell you about them when I've done them.

Thanks for popping in xxx

AWAITING SOME NEW ARRIVALS

Hello Peeps,
Well - I am waiting for a couple of Foster puppies who will be arriving at the weekend. :-)
I don't know anything much about them yet but will take some photos when they are here.
They will be with me for about 10 days so I hope they will be good and that they like cats :-D

Here is a card I made for the DRAGON's LAIR FACEBOOK PROGRESSIVE CHALLENGE.
I have just managed to scrape in with 1 day to spare LoL


I am going to have a day off from card making at the weekend because my craft room is in such a mess. !!! I must tidy and sort out some things that I want to sell as I no longer use them :-)

I hope you are all looking forward to your weekend and maybe getting some nice weather too. It's pretty hot and storms here in Greece and I think we are due for some more torrential rain :-(

Happy crafting All xxx

CARD COMMISSIONS JUNE 2018

As promised, here are some pretty girly cards :-D

This first one was made using several die cuts and some Greek lace. The flowers were die cut and then tinted with cream ink.



This one was for a Greek lady. The papers and images are from SALT TOWN STUDIOS - Blue Skies Kit  and the card was constructed using a Bow Card Template from SANDRA's SCRAP SHOP.  I printed out the flower elements in different sizes and then fussy cut and layered them. All the bow elements were stitched on my sewing machine. I used assorted dies for the lacy bits and leaves.




I used flowers from SAMFLORA and a lovely floral die cut which was sent to me by a Blogging chum :-)  The kitty was stamped in orange in and then coloured with watercolour pencils. The stamp is from a set by 'Your Next Stamp ' and the Set is called ' Jessica's Kitten '. The background papers are from 1st Edition - ANIMAL ANTICS.



Well - I think that's it from me at the moment. Thank you for looking xxx

SOME MORE BLOKE CARDS :-)

I always find it difficult to make cards for me if I haven't got an idea of their hobbies or stuff. 
I've had a bit of a run on Blokes' cards this week, but at least with most of them I was given a hint LoL

This first one - the lady said her father liked G & T, Music and liked to burn his own music CDs :-)
I used some scraps of hessian too and an alphabet die.



For the fisherman I made a little fishing gillet having seen a picture on Pinterest and drew some fake stitching. I made some little fishing baits and covered them in glaze to make them shiny. Then I fussy cut then and stuck them to hang off his pockets.








This one was for a teenager who's not really into anything except sitting in front of his computer !!! :-(  So I did this......


I hand cut a gamer handset and then used bits from my scrap box for the background etc. The gold number panel is the left-overs from a numeral die cut and then I die cut his name.
Inspiration for this taken from Leslye Lauterbach Designs card ;



This one is for my youngest Grandson - he is into super heroes :-)
The background web was done with an embossing folder . The Spiderman is a colouring page, fussy cut and mounted with 3D foamies.





I'll be along in a minute with some pretty girly cards :-)

SOME MORE CARD COMMISSIONS

Well Helloooooeeee,
here I am with the promised pictures of my latest card commissions.
The first one - the lady asked me if I could draw a guy with a beer and a plastic paddling pool.... so I did  hahahaha
The background is a watercolour painting I did of a little scene on Telendos. The bottle was printed out and covered with sticky backed plastic to make it shine :-)
The paddling pool was coloured and then coated with glaze to make it look like plastic.

**** If anyone would like this image for free (he has a plain bottle in his hand in the Digi) then please leave me a message/email me. ****



This one is for the same guy. The sunglasses were coated with glaze and the bottles covered with plastic. The little shirt I folded using a shirt template and the background is a map of my island -Kalymnos.


I have some more to show later :-)

I'M BACK AGAIN

Hello Peeps,
My Blog has been a bit neglected recently as I have been busy fostering some Rescue Doggies :-)  My Doggo Boi hasn't really been too impressed, but he had an easier time with this last two  in that he was bigger than they were LoL
Here is PAVLOS who I had for about 3 weeks or so.........

Pav and Purr-sephonee


Pav and Moishe




And here is NICOLE. She just stayed for a long weekend before her flight :-)




Moishe is now back to being Home Alone Doggo Boi until we maybe get another chum :-D

I have been making some card commissions this week so I will post some of those up tomorrow.
Thanks for popping in xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
