Hi Peeps,
Everything is a bit neglected at my end as I have such a lot of work to do on the house before the weather changes.
Anyhoo...... I have popped in to tell you that I am one of the Sponsors for this year's 31 DAY OF HALLOWEEN BLOG HOP - as hosted by the wonderful Leigh SB Designs and she has bought out a fabulous new digi set to celebrate with.
I don't think I am going to have much time to play along but here is the link to this fantastic event.
For those of you inclined towards HALLOWEEN, it's a definite MUST GO  :-D


You can play either as a WICKED BLOGGER by linking up your new and old, cute or creepy Halloween projects and hopping along or be a SINISTER STALKER and simply creep around all the blogs in the linky party and leave lots of love in your wake🎃

You'd be crazy not to join in on the spooktivities coz I've got PRIZES to give away🎃
Full details on how to play and the hop rules are below today's featured project!
Please make sure you read over the rules so you can play and qualify for the prizes!

BUSY, BUSY WITH SMALL FURRY PEOPLE

Hello little Bloggy friends. 
I am sad to say my personal Blog is being a little neglected just now. It is puppy explosion season here on my little Greek island and I am busy fostering some of the more needy ones.
I had Karlos for a while to fatten him up and now I have his brother - Kostas, who is a sad, skinny little guy. He has an eye infection and is generally very thin and neglected. He also has now a separation anxiety, so I can't even go into the loo without him creating a fuss. hahahaha :-D
At least this week he is looking a bit fatter, his eyes are clearing and his coat is starting to get shiny, so I think he will do well.

The kittens are now 12 weeks old and are crating havoc. "Mum" just sits looking at them while they destor everything.  LoL She is still very protective of them and I am hoping to catch her and get her to the Vet to be 'fixed' this week :-D

I will try and get some decent photos of him to put on later. 
Here is a couple of Karlos - the first one I had :-D :-D



Bye for now xxxxx

ARTISTIC INSPIRATIONS DT PIECE #4

Good morning Peeps,
OMGoodness..... I am here to post my piece for the  Challenge at ARTISTIC INSPIRATIONS for May is #215 - ANYTHING GOES, and we are sponsored this month by COLOUR OF LOVE.

Colour of Love

Now I know you might be thinking that I've got all my months wrong but I haven't. !!  This post was scheduled to go up at the beginning of May when this Challenge started and I did not notice that it hadn't :-( My Blog is a bit neglected lately as I have such a lot going on in my life this end, and don't seem to find the time/energy to give to it. I found that it hadn't 'posted' when I went to prepare June's post !!  :-(  :-(

Anyhoo - here is the piece I made using  ' Cliff The Stork '. I coloured him using Spectrum Noir markers. The papers are from my stash. I poked holes around the edge and used some glittery thread to sew in Blanket Stitch around.


Thank you for popping in today and I hope your weather is improving where you are :-D

I shall be back tomorrow with June's Challenge !!!

WEDDING CARD COMMISSION #1

Me again :-)
Here is one of the commissions I have been making this last couple of weeks.
One of the couple works at our local airport so I made a bow card in the colours of the invitation and using airport themed images from their invitations to make my own papers.



The parts were all machine stitched with toning cotton and I added some material flowers and lace in the centre, with die cut filigree. 
I also made my own box for this card as they are too bulky for envelopes.

Thanks for looking.

BUSY,BUSY,BUSY

Hello Peeps,
Well - I have been very busy this end trying to get my garden sorted out and working on stuff to fix the house. I've also had a couple of big card orders so my poor little Bloggy here has suffered. :-(

I have had a major clear up in my craft room too so I have a few things I shall be selling on the IkesArt Fan Facebook Page. I shall be adding them on there in the next couple of days, so keep your eyes peeled :-D

Today I decided to have a bit of crafty play as I haven't done anything for pleasure for a while.
I decided to enter the INTERNATIONAL ART & SOUL CHALLENGE which this time is #58 Ecology/Environmental/Conservation.

I have made a journal page using " Earth Day " globe from BUGABOO  ( I don't think they have this for sale any more) and I drew a hand to hold it, and added a quote from Guy McPherson.


Thank you very much for popping in.
