LOOK OUT IT's THE EASTER CATBUNNY :-D

Hello Peeps.... I'm back again today !! :-D

I have made this card to enter the new CLEVER DEXTER CHALLENGE #4 - Bunny Hop.  Well - they didn't say it had to be a real Bunny :-)

I used one of my images from IKEsART called - " EASTER CATBUNNY ".  A cute kitty sitting in an Easter basket. He has cunningly taped his ears down and added some bunny ears to disguise himself hahahaha :-D
He was coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and his backing papers and eggs are from the Egg-Stravaganza Set " by  Miggins Does Scrapsville.



I have also gone with the colours of the sketch palette.



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

BEE CLEAN

Hello Peeps,
I snagged a really cute FREEBIE this morning from DUSTIN PIKE and it's called " Bee Clean ".

I had a Marianne Embossing and Die Cut set DF3404 which is Honeycomb design so I decided that would be great with this digi image.
The die cut hexagons are actually cut from gold card - Honey is liquid gold right ?? - but it doesn't show well in the picture without flashing back the light :-D

I also used backing papers from ROMAJO Designs called " Of Bears and Bees ".



I've got glaze on the bubbles to but that doesn't show either :-(  I think I might put some KindyGlitz on the water. :-D

Thank you for popping in and keep safe xo

ST PATTY's DAY

Hi there Peeps,
I got a really cute FREEBIE from BUGABOO on their FB Fan Page the other day so I used him to make a St Patrick's Day card for my friend in the UK.
I used lots of snippets from my St Paddy's box. These papers were from DOODLE PANTRY St Patrick's Day set (sadly the Shop is now closed).

I coloured the cute Turtle with Spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut him out.
The Doily is made with a die and then I cut a teeny, thin strip of the green paper to thread through instead of ribbon.



I was Turtley " inspired by JODIE MACKRELL's  card . Instead of adding buttons, I fussy cut a couple of the teeny shamrocks from the backing paper.

This year I decided to join the 30 DAY SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE 2020which is organised and run by MAGENTA SKY PRINTMAKING.

30 DAY SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE - DAY 28 + 29

Hello Peeps,
This year I decided to join the 30 DAY SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE 2020which is organised and run by MAGENTA SKY PRINTMAKING.  

These last few days I have taken on a couple of emergency foster furbabies so things have been a bit hectic.
I am now trying to play catch-up and these are my DAY 28 + 29 pieces
The themes were " FAVOURITE PLACE and  MOVIES ". 

One of my favourite places is here in my garden in Greece looking up at the stars at night. There are no lights up here so no ' light pollution ' so the stars are really bright.
I added cats because if I'm out here then some of my cats usually are too :-D.

This was made by finger painting and cut out silhouette grass and cats added afterwards.

DAY 28



DAY 29
My take on a classic film - pen and ink.



Oh, and here are the Foster Furbabies..... Mother and son :-D

Good afternoon Peeps,
This year I decided to join the 30 DAY SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE 2020which is organised and run by MAGENTA SKY PRINTMAKING and this is my DAY 27 pieceThe theme today is " WEIRD SCIENCE ". 

My take on Davinci's ' Vitruvian Man ' with Perspective background and stripped musculature.

In my usual fashion I went over the top with this and then my pen started to run out and I smudged it a couple of times !!   
I shall be glad when this Challenge has ended - my ideas of quick 10 minute sketches goes straight out the window because my anal brain doesn't seem to be able to grasp that concept !
