I did some more applique for a special " Snaily " friend and she received it yesterday so I can show you now :-D


I made it as a wall hanging and hope it gives her a smile every day :-D

I am making another Seagull one but having a really rough week this week so haven't quite finished it yet :-(


Thanks for popping in. xoxo

ANYONE FOR A SELFIE ?

 Hello Peeps,

Gawd I am so tired. Started my follow-up chemo 2 weeks ago and due for another dose on Monday :-( Have to go every 3 weeks for a year !!!   They said it wouldn't make my hair fall out this time but all my eyelashes plinked out in one go last week, so I'm not happy with that.... back to " fish eyes " hahahaha :-D

Anyhoo - I managed to make myself a little card to enter in the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS CHALLENGE - X for EXPOSED :-D This just tickled me :-D :-D

So my kitty is definitely exposed :-D :-D

He is a photo of a very silly purse that I bought that just makes me laugh out loud :-D

The kitty with him is a sticker and I have used a negative frame and some paw print backing paper.


I had a day trip to Kos yesterday as had to go to the Police and register for these new Biometric cards we have to have now to replace our Residents' Permits, because of Brexit. :-(   Really early start at 6am for the ferry and a looooong time waiting around and was out all day until 5pm. Pretty knackered today so not doing much else just now.

Hope you are having a good day.

A BIT OF GREEK ART

 Hello Peeps,

Today I have made a page using the July free image from GECKO GALZ to enter this month's challenge.

I have used a Greek flag, Greek lace and a Greek μαίανδρος *  border for my background.

Greek: Μαίανδρος is a decorative border constructed from a continuous line, shaped into a repeated motif. Such a design is also called the Greek fret or Greek key design, although these are modern designations. Μαίανδρος – a river in Asia Minor (present day Turkey) known for its winding course. This is where the English word Meander comes from.

I changed her dress colour to blue to fit my theme.

I have added bunches of blue grapes to decorate.





Thank you for popping in today.

ZOMBIE FISH STONE

 Me again today,

Continuing my Sea theme - I found this rock on the beach that gave me a mental image of a fish so I brought him home and painted him. :-D  This rock fish gave me the inspiration for my ZOMBIE PET SHOP 1 + 2 collections of digis.



I might collect some more rocks and paint kitties or nice things on them and put them back on the beach for people to find :-D :-D

Thanks for dropping in again xoxo

UNDER THE SEA

 Hello Peeps,

Here is something I made using one of my images - MERMAID 1 - but I only used the top half of her.

I made the background using blue and yellow paint on card, and I smurged it all around with my fingers. I then added "waves" using glitter glue.

The mini shells I got from the beach and I added the scary skull because she is a bit scary too :-D




Thanks for popping in.

I'VE BEEN SEWING

 Hello Peeps,

I have been trying something completely new - QUILTING.  :-D

Now, I didn't have a lot of material hanging around to do this - going to have to beg friends for any scraps as I'm now hooked.

I joined a quilting site a couple of months ago because I fell in love with the Seagull quilt squares that would be offered every month and here is my first attempt. Suzys Sitcom and this is part of the SEAGULL PARADISE QUILT.

I made a wall hanging for my friend's outdoor Cabana so it's stuck onto 2 layers of thick cardboard.

My chemo fingers had an easier time with the sewing machine. I bought this round needle foot thingy so I could see to edge around all the little pieces but I think it's a foot for freehand embroidery because it was very "slippy ", but considering my furky fingers, I didn't do too bad.

I added googly eyes and omitted to do all the extraneous embroidery as I can't cope with that :-)




I can't show you a full picture of the Quilt because we are awaiting the final square next month, so we don't know what we're going to get yet :-D

I am going to do a couple more as pictures or wall hangings, maybe even a table runner. :-D
Thanks for popping in.

CRAFTLANDIA MONTHLY CHALLENGE

 Hi Peeps - long time, no speak eh ?  I'm doing OK and my chemo numb fingers are getting much better :-D

I have used " UNDER THE SEA " backing paper by SPYDER, " SEAHORSE " from the "SEA LIFE 12 piece Set" by me at IKEsART, a SeaShell Border by MY SCRAP CHICK, a saucy lady from GECKO GALZ - TATTOO SUMMER Craft Kit and two images from GECKO GALZ - NAUTICAL 1 & 2 decoupage pages.


I've got something else I'm working on too so I will be back again later :-D
Thank you for popping in.

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.

The feather 'pen' is made from one of my chicken's
feathers - he shed it though... I didn't pluck it :-D

It is nice to be able to do a bit of " dark stuff " these days, so I am very pleased to have found this Challenge :-D

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