CORONA CHRISTMAS

 Hello Peeps,

Here I am with a little creation to play at Clever Dexter's Challenge. Their theme is Gourds and their Sponsor is Oddball so I loved both :-)

I have used ODDBALL's Set - HALLOWEEN CAT to make my card.

                  

I have used the pre-coloured images for this one since you know I have " finger trouble "  Hahahaha.  

I had to cut off and colour the kitty's Halloween had and add a Christmas one instead.

The background papers are from DELICIOUS DOODLES - " Christmas Critters " paper set.


The Pumpkin family have all turned up at Kitty's house but, not only are they too late for Halloween, there are now too many of them for Kitty's Christmas party because of the " Bubble " Rules !!!!!  Oh well - better luck next year :-D

Thank you for popping in and I hope you are all safe and well.

YAY ! A CHRISTMAS CARD AGAIN :-D

 Hello again Peeps,

Well, yesterday I tried a bit of the old colouring again and it didn't come out too bad. Went over the lines a couple of times but I managed to hide it with a white marker :-D The cutting out was awkward but slow and steady - isn't that what they say. ?

I have made a little card for my Daughter for Christmas. Just found out that the price of a Greek postage stamp has doubles since the Lockdowns all started !!!!


I have used this sweet image from MO MANNING and it's called " What's Cooking ". I coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers and used papers from my Xmas snippets box for the background. I raised her up with 3D foamies and added a couple of heart brads :-)

Had a call from the hospital this morning to check if I'd had my 4th chemo and saying that my Surgeon will ring me next week to tell me the date for the operation - so, hopefully not long now :-D 

Thanks for popping in and I hope you are all keeping safe and well ?

SANTA PAWS :-)

 Hello Peeps,

I have been exercising my fingers today with a bit of colouring on a gorgeous Freebie I got from SPYDER, and I've managed to make a little card and only cut myself once LoL

I coloured the kitty with Spectrum Noir markers and used embossing folders for his background and sentiments :-)

I used snippets of papers from previous projects.

There is a lovely SNOWMAN as a FREEBIE from SPYDER this week if you want to pop over and snag it.

I may try colouring him up tomorrow.

Thanks for popping in.

PERCIVAL's REALLY BAD DAY JUST GOT WORSE :-)

 Hello Peeps,

I'm back in here again today with a creation I have made for the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS challenge, which is P for Penguins.

I found this penguin and coloured and added him a festive Chrimbo hat. It made me chuckle to myself about my weather here in Greece and some really chilly weather people get elsewhere in the world at this time of year, so that it was inspired this card :-D   Shouldn't brag really but it's still gorgeous here :-D :-D


Also - he looks like I feel about yet another Lockdown as I am sooooo hoping it's not going to delay my operation, although apparently, I can get a permit to travel for medical purposes :-)  Keeping my fingers crossed. I don't want to do another dose of chemo before we get this done cuz #4 really sh*tted me up:-(

Thanks for popping by today and I hope you aren't freezing your nuts off in chilly weather.
Stay safe out there xoxo

KITTY ATC

So today I tried to make something with my chemo numb fingers  -You should have seen the mess I got into trying to pick up and stick those teeny googly eyes on   :-D :-D :-D  LoL 

A very dear friend sent me this little Kitty die cut and I think he's supposed to be a Bookmark from the way his paws lift up.
I have cut him out and stuck him on an ATC with cat paw background and then I coloured him with some stripes like my Sam  who is a Blorange cat :-D 
 I left the paws sticking up so I can still use the whole thing as a Bookmark :-) 

Well there he is and I am quite pleased to have had a go at crafting after such a while :-)

I have posted him also on my Cats Only Challenge site - SHOW US YOUR PUSSY CATS and I hope you will come along and play there, all you kitty lovers. =^..^=
As always the Theme is FURRYTHING GOES   =^..^=  
The LINKY can be found HERE.

CRAFTY DAY

Hello Peeps,
The weather is very cloudy today so no playing in the garden and it's a bit too dingy to be able to paint the bedroom walls - I won't be able to see if I have good coverage - so today I am having a play in my craft room.
Here's my first card of the day made with images from BECCY's PLACE.
I snagged this Free mason jar and put it with one of Beccy's cats from the " CAT'S MEOW " set.


I printed the kitty twice - one time a big bigger - so that his head is bigger to allow for the refraction of the glass jar.
Inside I have also used the CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRIES from BECCY.
I used paw print backing papers by ERIN CROUCH STUDIO - At The Zoo Set  available from PIXEL SCRAPPER, and THE COTTAGE MARKET -  Free Pawprint Papers.
I also followed the Sketch over at Beccy's MAY Challenge, but I flipped it to Landscape.

  


I am playing with some other stuff to enter more Challenges so I'll catch you all later.
Thanks for popping in :-)

Hello peeps,
I hope everyone is keeping safe and well and INDOORS !

Today I have made a little card with a sweet kitty from POLKADOODLES.  He is called " Kitty Cat Get Well ".  I also used one of their backing papers from the Wallflowers collection.

I have made this card to enter the new CLEVER DEXTER CHALLENGE #3 - Struck By Luck.  Well - they didn't specify if it was Good or Bad luck :-)

I have also gone with Green to play with the sketch palette.




I have coloured the kitty with Spectrum Noir markers and made a little sentiment tag. I then fussy cut him and placed him on 3D foamies for some pop.

Thanks for stopping by.

PURPLE DAY BLOG HOP 2020 - EPILEPSY AWARENESS

No photo description available.

Hello Peeps,
Today is PURPLE DAY and our good friend FIKI has organised a Blog Hop in support of epilepsy awareness.
Please take a moment and read.
PURPLE DAY is a global grassroots event formed with the intention to increase worldwide awareness of epilepsy, and to dispel common myths and fears of this neurological disorder.
Further intentions of this movement are to reduce the social stigmas commonly endured by many individuals afflicted with the condition, to provide assurance and advocacy to those living with epilepsy that they are not alone in their ongoing endurance, and to initiate individuals living with the condition to take action in their communities to achieve these aims.
The day occurs annually on March 26.
You can read more about epilepsy here.

You have from 26-31 march to hop around!
Lets hop!

IKE** You are Here **

Some ladies have giveaways on their blogs and we have 2 sponsors Digi Doodle Studios and Kinda cute by Patricia Alvarez.
I am giving you this image today from Ike's Art and Annabel from Knitty Kitty Designs is also giving images!
I made 2 creations for you to see - One using a lovely image I was given by KNITTY KITTY called " PUDDLES OF LOVE ". I coloured him with Spectrum Noir markers and I added little dogs inside the raindrops, so it's actually " Raining Dogs on the Cat " hahahaha :-D :-D

The 2nd image I used was given to me by SHERRY WEST and she's called "SWEET SALLY ". I also coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers and used a selection of dies to make her a pretty background. She is popped up on 3D foamies.

So what you must do to be in the draw for the prizes ?
It's simple.......................
1. You must comment on each stop .
2. Leave a comment on my blog and tell me what you learnt about Epilepsy.

Here is my Prize list I am offering:






Winners will be picked Randomly from the list of Comments.

Thank you for popping in and I hope you enjoy the rest of the Hop. xxx
