LEIGH's 1st BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION CONTEST

Hello Peeps and Happy Saturday,
It is definitely Spring here in Greece, although the wind is a wee bit chilly today.
Here is my 2nd piece to help celebrate the 1st Birthday of  LEIGH SB DESIGNS ART STAMPS.
Leigh has generously given a FREEBIE to play along with so I have used it and paired it with 'ODE TO POE' and fussy cut all the pieces to pop them up on 3D foamies.
I went and bought the new 'PARTY HATS SET' and cut a nice one for Mr Poe in suitably sedate colours for him , coz I mean - he wouldn't exactly go overboard on his colour scheme would he ?!!  LoL





You can find the Challenge Link HERE , BUT YOU'VE ONLY GOT 1 MORE DAY !!!

NO PLACE LIKE GNOME

Hi Everyone,
Doing some more colouring today hiding from the Easter dynamite !!

Here is a card I have made for the April Progressive Challenge with GERDA STEINER.
The image this month is "GNOME COUPLE". I have coloured them with Spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut them. The background is by SPYDER and is called ' One Little Toadstool' (unfortunately no longer trading). I printed it out faded so as not to outdo my gnomes. The background papers are from a free kit by MIGGINS Does Scrapville  called "Egg-Stravaganza".





 













I made a label in Photodraw.

FEELS LIKE SPRING

It's me again,
Spring has certainly arrived here on my little Greek island - it's lovely :-)
I was inspired to make this Spring card having got a new cutting file from LITTLE SCRAPS OF HEAVEN which came with some fabulous matching papers :-D


I cut him out using my Silhouette CURIO and the flowers are die cut with a Crealies Die. I edged the teddy pieces using Distress Ink.
For the card I followed sketch #508 from SKETCH SATURDAY.
I added some KindyGlitz to the little bee wings for shine :-)

                           


I hope you are having a great crafty weekend. xxx

LEIGH's 1st BIRTHDAY CONTEST

Hello Peeps and Happy Saturday,
It is Easter this weekend here in Greece, so I am hiding in my craft room in the basement to keep the dog calm with all the fireworks and dynamite that will occur today and tomorrow. (Sunday night is the worst !!!!)   :-(
Anyhoo - here is my first piece to help celebrate the 1st Birthday of  LEIGH SB DESIGNS ART STAMPS.
Leigh has generously given a FREEBIE to play along with so I have used it and paired it with 'Tangled Vampire Cat' and fussy cut all the pieces to pop them up on 3D foamies. The background paper is from my stash but I can't remember who it is from :-(  I coloured everything with Spectrum Noir Markers and used a bit of KindyGlitz on the cupcake.







I hope to make a couple more pieces before the month is out :-D  You can find the Challenge Link HERE .

WINDY MONDAY

Hello All,
It's windy again here and a fair bit of the dreaded 'Red Dust' floating about :-(
Consequently, I am hiding in my craft room hahaha :-D
I decided to blow the cobwebs off my Silhouette CURIO this morning and made a Tag using a cutting file Bear from LITTLE SCRAPS OF HEAVEN. I must admit that I made the bear pretty small and the machine grunged up the flowers and words. Maybe I don't have the settings right cuz I have a new blade in there but it just chewed the flowers up :-(
This sweet Bear comes with these great backing papers, so I used them all.
The flowers were made with a die cut and the ribbons are scraps from my stash.










I've got some other bits to Post later, so I'll be back.
Thanks for dropping in xx

HAPPY WEDNESDAY PEEPS

Hi All - here we are half way through yet another week and the end of March is looming. !  I don't know where the time goes :-)

Today I have a little Easter/Spring piece for you. I have used a recent Freebie digi I got from MISS RACH, which is called " Easter Basket Sheep "
For the background I have used papers from CAJOLINE - Easter Papers and followed a Sketch from SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY -  SSW2.
I  printed multiple sizes of the same image to make a Flock :-) I coloured them with Spectrum Noir markers. The corner flowers are from my local haberdashery shop.

SOME CARD COMMISSIONS

Me again,
Here's the two cards I made this week for a lady to send to Sweden.
Her daughter is horse mad and the other is for her son. I always think cards for men are difficult.... maybe it's because men don't really look/appreciate them and usually just chuck them away. :-( I find it difficult to get mega inspired about a bloke's card unless they are someone who has a particular hobby/theme that they are really into - then they appreciate it more :-)

I was trawling for manly card ideas and I came across one by KAREN DAY that I have CASE'd. I didn't have the same papers but I quite like my effort - even if it does look a bit like Pyjamas  hahaha






The second card is for her daughter who likes horses. I tried making one of those pop-out centres - it's a bit if a bug to get it to fold away smoothly AND in the right place LoL.



Here's a Mothers' Day card I was asked to make for a friend. I used bluetits picture for a background, die cut edge and lilac stamps. I coloured the stamp with Promarkers.

GOSH IT'S WINDY !

Hello Sunday Peeps,
Well - it's super windy here and they say we will be getting torrential rain..... again !!!  Then we are going to be hit BIG time with the red dust from the Sahara :-(   Needless to say I am not washing down my patios/house or cleaning the pool just yet !!! LoL

I am hiding down in my craft room today - even the Doggo wasn't keen on his walk this morning. We nearly got blown over a couple of times !

I have done a couple of card commissions this week and I decided to play with the latest LIMITED RUNS Progressive Challenge image image this morning.
I copied the Sketch from Sunday Stamps - Sketch Fun. The background papers are a set I got from PRETTY GRAFIK called "Spring Owls Papers". 
I printed a big chicken and then resized for smaller ones. I coloured them with Spectrum Noir markers to look like my own chickens who are English Light Sussex breed :-D



    

I'll be back in a mo' once I have sorted out the photos for the card commissions :-)
Thanks for dropping in. xx

CAT ON A SHELF

Hello All and happy Sunday,
Here I am with my entry for the Progressive Challenge for March with Gerda Steiner.
The image this month is CAT ON A BOOKSHELF.

I have made a window scene  using a garden photo at the back, overlaid with a die cut to look like a fancy window. The curtains, fancy pelmet and wallpaper are made using papers from the IMAGINE THAT Valentine Fundraiser set.
I coloured the kitty and bookshelf using Spectrum Noir markers and raised him with foamies.

FLUFFY AND CUTE

Hi All,
I managed to get a walk in some fresh air this morning as it's not raining (yet !!!)  LoL

This afternoon I have been using my Promarkers to colour a new image I bought - AURORA WINGS - " Mama It's So Fluffy".
I cut it out with dies (don't know the names sorry. ) One is a stitched square and the other is a pretty frame, and a great 2 piece fern/leaf set. I got them from FIKI at her CRAFTY KITTY CAT SHOP.
I used the smallest one and stamped the sentiment using my new 'Stamp Perfect'  by Hampton Art  :-)
The flowers are from a sprig of fake apple blossom that I got at a local e1 shop :-D I pulled them off the plastic stalks and glued some pretty beads in the centre to hold them back together :-D



Have a great day and thanks for popping in.

DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING

Hello Peeps.... it's the dreaded Monday again and it's still raining and flooding here in Greece :-(

I am hiding in my craft room again, and today I decided to play with some digital Scrapbooking - which I haven't done in a looooong time :-D 
I bought a cute set from DRAGON's LAIR DESIGNS and a little piggy digi from them too.  If you buy the Scrapkit you get a free Add On. :-)
This set is called "Soft Summer Mini Kit" and the digi image is called "Piggy Love".
Everything was coloured and prepared in Photodraw.











It took me a while to shuffle everything from front to back etc. as I hadn't done any digi scrapbooks for a while, but I had great fun :-)

Thanks for coming by. xx
