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
