Here is my piece for Day 1 - a Steampunk Poe clock that I made from an old CD and the base is a disk from an angle grinder :-D

I LUV BOOKS

Hello crafting Peeps and happy Sunday,
I am taking a bit of crafting time today.
I must say that I love books and always find joy in the fact that I have the ability to read. I really love the smell of old bookshops :-D
I saw a great Challenge over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and decided to use one of my own digis that I have never coloured up and used before. I drew it as a commission for one of my DT Girlz and I never really realized how complicated it was to colour hahahaha
It is called " THE BOOK DEN ".
Here is my card and I have set the image on a picture of an old crusty book :-D


I coloured it using Spectrum Noir Markers, and found a great quote on the Web.
You can buy this digi at IKEsART.

GETTING INSPIRED

Good morning Peeps,
It's pretty chilly here and this morning I could see snow right up on top of the very highest mountains !!!!   We haven't had any of that since 2004 !!  They had snow on Kos yesterday - it doesn't usually come this far down :-(

I am here today to tell you that I am working on the DT for ARTISTIC INSPIRATIONS. :-)

Artistic Inspirations

The first Challenge of this year is #211 and we are being Sponsored by FABRIKA FANTASY.

I chose to work with " COFFEE MOUSE ".
I coloured him with pencils and paper pieced his trousers using the same patchwork paper that I used for the background, only I resized it to make it teeny :-)
I picked up the quote from the internet.
He was cut using a stitched rectangle and then layered onto red card.



Thank you for popping in today and I hope you stay warm and cozy :-D

This was 2004

FIRST OF THE NEW YEAR

Hello Peeps and Happy New Year to you All.
I am here with my first card of 2019.
I found a new Challenge site which is focusing on getting our Christmas cards ready for this year - I always panic at the last moment for my own as I get lots of commissions for cards then ! :-D
The new site is at JUST A DOTTY PUDDING and Challenge #1 is RUDOLPH & FRIENDS.
I got a lovely new stamp set in my little Greek copy shop just before Crimbo so I have used that.
I stamped and scanned the deer so that I could 'flip' him the other way to fit with my trees.




Here is my stamp set........


It's rare to find stamps or anything much crafty here on my little Island so I was pleased to see this... even if it was rather expensive :-(

Anyhoo, I am off to make something else now.
Have a great crafting year and thank you for visiting.
Don't forget there is Blog CANDY over at the SUYP Cats only Challenge :-D


Challenges I am entering;

Just a Dotty Pudding Challenge #1 - Rudolph & Friends    18/1
Patti's Creations Designs Challenge #154 - Snowy Days/Nights  31/1
Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #182 - Snow Much Fun  16/1

2018 ATCOIN LINKY SWAP WITH LEIGHSBDESIGNS

https://leighsbdesigns.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html

Hi Peeps - LEIGH is having an ATCoins Swap :-D I've never made any of these but I'm going to join the fun. :-D  Here's what she says about how we do it..............................................

Come and join the festivities and play in my ATCoin Christmas linky party and swap!
Everyone who links up their ATCoins in the linky party below are automatically included in the swap and will receive the LeighSBDesigns ATCoin Swap Label digi stamp I designed specifically for the swap❄️

Here's the deets on HOW to PLAY and the SWAP RULES!
❄️Swap is open to everyone everywhere!  By playing you agree to the following:
❄️Mention LeighSBDesigns ATCoin Linky Party and Swap in your blog posts/social media posts and include the link back to this post!
❄️Each player must make a minimum of 3 Christmas or winter themed ATCoins.
❄️Each ATCoin must include a LeighSBDesigns image and then you're welcome to use stamps by other companies too!  
❄️ You don't have to use my new Christmas ATCoins to play, of course I hope you love them and will
❄️Once you link up your ATCoins I will email you the freebie ATCoin swap label for you to use on the back of your coins.  Please make sure the email address you use is one you check often, I don't want you to miss it!
❄️Once you receive your freebie please reply to my email with your name and mailing address!
❄️If we have enough players to warrant it you are welcome to play more than once too but double check the player quantity before linking up a 2nd set of 3 ATCoins or more!
❄️The linky party closes Dec 9 at 5 minutes to midnight pacific!
❄️I will email you your swap partner's info no later than Dec 11 so keep a close eye on your email! 
❄️Please mail out your 3 ATCoins no later than Dec 14!
❄️Do NOT disappoint your swap partner by not mailing out, that will be a sucky thing to do at Christmas and you won't be able to play in future swaps!
❄️However, if you have a legitimate reason for being late mailing out then let me know ASAP so we can make a plan! 

Let the Christmas festivities begin❄️ 

Leigh has made a brand new set of special ATCoin Christmas images.....................


Right - I'm off to sort out images for my ATCoins. They might take forever to reach my Swap Partner because DonkeyMail is even slower at Christmas time but it's the thought that counts - Right ?!!  LoL
Huggies  and Happy Hanukkah    xxx
