SPRING BLOG HOP

 Good Morning Peeps,

Welcome to the first day of Spring :-D 

Well it's definitely starting to feel like Spring here in Greece - although it only lasts about a month before it gets hot :-) There are baby goats and lambs everywhere and the Almond blossoms are out. :-D

I just bought this new set by LEIGH SB DESIGNS - called ......


I love these quirky cute little guys :-D
I have coloured them up in pale Rainbow colours and set them on some spring coloured papers and card.

There are lots of brand new Spring designs in Leigh's Shop HERE and there's a SALE on now :-D

FREDDY TEDDY's HOUSE

 Hello Peeps,

I have made this card using 2 of the FREEBIES from SPYDER. She gives a lovely FREEBIE every WEDNESDAY :-D 

One is called " FREDDY BEAR " and the other one is " ANOTHER GNOME HOUSE ".

I merged to two of them together and there is Freddy with his first Spring flower. :-D


It was nice to try a bit of colouring as my " Chemo Fingers " are feeling a little bit more like themselves LoL
We are in Dark Red Lockdown here on my little Greek island because the darn Virus has found it's way here, so mostly I am hiding in my house except for trips to the hospital or blood lab :-(

Anyhoo - I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

A BIT OF GOTHIC

 Hello Peeps,

I hope everyone is safe and well ? :-)  My " chemo fingers " have got a bit better so I am trying a little crafting. I must say, my Mojo is definitely hiding away but I was inspired by a new GOTHIC Challenge Blog that I found..... NEVERMORE DESIGNS.

They are giving away an excellent Freebie to play along with so I couldn't resist :-D

I have made a little ATC sized Faux book using papers from my stash, the Freebie and some Smeared Ink stamps from the Nevermore set.

Please have a look at my CRAFT ROOM DE-STASH post HERE.
I am uploading stuff quite often as I sort it all out :-)

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.
