I'M BACK WITH NEW GOODIES :-D

Hi Peeps,
Well, here I am back from sunny UK and had a great time with my DD and her family (other than catching their kiddy stomach bug which took out my first week - yuk !!!)

I got some new goodies that were sent to her house a month ago awaiting my arrival - yoo hoo.... and I also got the chance to meet up with the illustrious BLACK DRAGON..... not enough time and too much to say so I would deffo need more time to chat with her, but at least we got to meet :-D 

So anyways, I was just rushing in as I have something to enter over at Darnell's Blog for her NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff) Challenge #1, so I better get this in quick.







These digital images are from the Spritus Mortis Kit by itKuPiLLi which I purchased ages ago but have never gotten round to using until now.
The ribbon rose I made myself and the lace is vintage stuff I got from eBay recently.
I made this card as a commission item for a friend to send to a Gothic sister :-D It was one hell of a struggle as I seem to have left my creative Mojo back in the UK :-( Hey-ho !!
Hopefully it will return and I can then play constructively with my new schtuff :-D xx

MEGA MAIL FROM THE DONKEY

It's me again with my second piece of DonkeyMail to show you.

There is the most amazing crafter called CLARE WILLCOCKS - not only is she an artist and does gorgeous water colours but she does this mind blowing thing with ultra intricate paper cutting that you would not believe. !!!
I recently commissioned her to do me one about cats, and it has arrived safe and sound.
Here is a picture - but they are even more amazing in real life I can tell you....



It's in part of it's original packaging until I get it framed up coz I would hate to get anything spilt on it or damage it.
You know, I stare and stare as it's almost unbelievable that she cuts these with a scalpel. The maroon paper is at the back so that it shows up her fine work. She did the Blog Header on her personal Blog, so why not pop over and take a squint at that, and her latest commission - a doggie one for a Scottie called Hamish !!!!  You will be blown away, I assure you !!!

Here's the Blog post with more pics of my commission...  Click HERE

THANK YOU Clare and you will be getting some more work from me !! hee hee  I mean - I would have to have a set of these wouldn't I ?????.... oh yeah !!! :-D



COZZZZMIC HAPPY MAIL

Hello Peeps,
Look what DonkeyMail bought me from CreepyGlowbugg all the way from the US !!!




I got a fabulous card, some ATCs and goodies and the most amazing toilet paper roll tag box. Just take a look at that.... it's AWESOME and it's such a pity that you can't see this in real life !!! I am so pleased and will certainly treasure this. :-D
Glo makes absolutely fantastic things so if you want to go and have a look, then pop over to her Blog at CREEPY GLOWBUGG

Thanks a million Glo xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

CARD COMMISSION 1

Happy Monday Peeps,
Just popping in quickly to show one of the cards I made yesterday.
I used an image from DIGITAL TWO for TUESDAY and then cut her out with a doily die.
The background was made using the left overs from die cutting flowers as a stencil and spraying some inks through it.
Leaves and flowers cut with various dies. I inked all the edges for effect.

IN A HOLIDAY MOOD

Hello Peeps,
I am getting into a holiday mood now that we have hit June as I am off to see my daughter and grandbabies in 10 days time :-D
Much as I don't like the travelling, I am looking forward to seeing her and family.
I think though that my Mojo has left without me already as I am not feeling at all inspired and have commissions for 4 cards which are as yet unstarted :-(
In the hopes of enticing Mojo back, I thought I would mess with some ATCs (start small - right ??!!!) They are going to be on a Holiday theme for a Swap at Card Making World.

I found a really cool Seagull backing paper and it is marked Alice Potter, but I don't know where I got it from.
Then I cut out a snippet of postcard paper from a Vintage Card Pack that I bought from Create and Craft about 10 years ago ... LoL
The suitcase was a freebie and I paper pieced it with a picture of real leather. The little lady sitting on her case waiting to go is 'Angelina Flowertina Sitting' who is a freebie from CREATIVE BUG ON THE LOOSE, and I think she's still snaggable if you are quick :-D I coloured her with Promarkers and Copics.
The mini postcard says "καλό ταξίδι"... which is good journey in GREEK.




So - there we are. In an attempt to lure back my Mojo, it's not come out too bad. :-)
