Ooohhh!! new challenge blog!!!

I am such a mix of excited and nervous!!!
I have spent the last couple of weeks playing around making a challenge blog for Lily-boo's boutique and tonight it is up and running!! yey!!!!

This is the card I made (using Sams super cute freebie that is on the challenge blog!!).
The challenge was to make a new home card using a recipe from the kitchen of Enfys!! the recipe was 2 ribbons,3 flowers and 4 brads.
Here's what I came up with using a wiper card tutorial that I found on splitcoast stampers site.

The freebie image is so cute ( thanks Sam!!!). I coloured it using my copic ciao's and mounted it on a cuttlebugged birds and swirls (...bought for me by my big sis!!) background that I had inked over. I added my 3 paper roses and used 4 heart brads to attch the house to the card. My 2 ribbons are a little hard to see, one is a pale blue organza and the other is a pale blue thin satin ribbon on top of the organza one.

Here is a link to the challenge site Lily-boo too!! please pop over and take part!!! have a noseyat the DT's cards, they are amazing.

This is the second swiper card I have made, the first one I will post tomorrow, it was my happy mail to my lovely friend michelle.

Thankyou for popping in, I am off to get a cuppa now!!

My grandad's birthday card!!

Hello everyone!!!! happy sunday!! it has been a gorgeous day here today. We took mo to a new park and spent ages there, there was a litttle climbing wall and rope nests and stepping logs through the woods, it was just lovely. Though the poor little man managed to get ahuge splinter in his foot at home on the decking and oh boy did he cry when we tried to get it out!!! poor thing!!!
Friday was my grandad's birthday so I had to save posting my card on here until over this weekend incase he took a peek at it!!! For this one I used one of the gorgeous boys circles over on Lily-boo's boutique.
I coloured him with my copics and popped some 3d glaze on the bull rush heads,water and the fishes to pop them out a little.
I made the background in my word programme on my computer and made some of the words bold so they stood out a little more from the rest and a little seperate sentiment to pop on top too.
I folded one corner over and added a little heart brad and bit of ribbon to finish it off and with the scraps I had left I made the inside match. I really like this one as my grandad loves fishing so the image seemed just perfect!! the only problem is my older son Ryan saw it and heis really getting into fishing now and has asked me to make hima little book with my BIA with the same image so he can record what fish he catches!!!!!! ( i have to say it is a mighty fine idea!!!!)
Right, I have happy mail to make now and oh by has it gone all dark outside all of a sudden....rain on its way me thiks!!!! at least its the end of the day!!!!!
Thankyou for popping in!!!

Get funky challenge card!

Hello !!! Happy saturday everyone!!!!
I have had one of those weeks this week!! first i got stung by a wasp on my right buttock and oh boy did it go yukky!!! it was hard, very swollen and very sore for a couple of days!! now it is just sore!!!
than just when I really didn't want it to my mojo took a few days holiday without giving me notice!!! (lol!!!! I hate it when that happens!!!!!)
Luckily this morning I woke up with a little thought in my head and this is how it came out!!!! This is for 2 challenges!!! Firstly it is for the excting new Get Funky challenge. Anice gave us a gorgeous sketch to follow so pop over there to have a peek at it (...if I had popped the sketch here you wouldn't of wombled over for a peek now would you!!!! lol!!!!) I needed to se at least one funky hand paper but I decided on 2 and whipped out my salt and peper download ( oooh, its scrummy and YES you do need it!!!) I cut my oval with one of the papers in the collection and then paper pieced tilda's bow,t-shirt and shoes with the other piece which as super cute skulls and crossbones on it. decided to keep to a black and white theme for halloween and coloured ilda with my copic ciao warm grey's. The 2nd challenge it is for is the UK crafters thread where we needed to use swirls ( hence the pretty swirls in the background!!) a bit of black inking, silver ribbon for bling with my computer written sentiment on a stampin up oval and whehey job done!!!!!
Here is a close up of tilda so you can see how cute the paper is.
Right now I've finished waffling on for tonight so quick, click thatlink and get on over to Get funky

Sneaky peek-a-boo reveal!!!!!

Morning everybody!!! it is such a beautiful day here, the sun is out and the family daubney are getting ready to go the our local nature park for a walk with the furry one and tea and cake ( which of course is a necessity!!!)
So here is my sneaky peek-a-boo revealed!!

Isn't the image just so cute!! Find them here at the boutique I love my little SK8R dude!!!!
I decided I wanted to make something a bit different with my image this time and with my nephew Jake's birthday coming up I decided I just had to make him a sketch book ( no surprises here that Jake has inherited some doodling genes from Sam!!!!) He is like a mini version of me and sam combined ( mwhaw haw haw...we have taught him well!!!!!!)
I coloured in my boy with my copic ciao's and trimmed around him. Then I made me a book with my BIA, the pages are just A4 plain paper trimmed down a little, the super cool blue spotty paper is actually a wallpaper sample from my local DIY store!!!!!! I love wallpaper samples, the little blue dots on it are flocked and soooo nice to rub!!!!!!! lol!!!
I attahched a little sketching pop a point pencil with a rubber on to the inside so everything he need to sketch away in in the book!!
I used my george cart to cut some circles and my all mixed up cart to cut his name in normal and shadow settings in some cool silver mirricard. I inked the edges with a dark blue ink ( hard to see in the piccy but because of the pearlescent wallpaper the piccy kept bouncing back on the camera!!!lol!!!) and then I stuck my little boy and circles in a diagonal acroos the front of the book. I couldn't resist a few silver card candy faux brads, they are just so yummy and a bit of blue metallicy thread tied around the binding.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's creations with this collection, they are awesome!!
right then I am off to get my walking boots on!!!!
Thankyou for dropping in on me xxxxxx

Oh my poor little blog!!! i have been sooo busy that I haven't popped a post on you for a while!!! lol!!!!!
I have been so busy with the picking the new Lily-boo DT ( go check them all out, they are an amazing bunch) that my fingers haven't had the will to pop over here!!!
This is my funky little house on the prairie card that I made using anice's fab freebie from the get funky! challenge blog, (it looks ike it is going to be great fun over there so go and have a nosey!! I must get working on my challenge entry!!!) This card is for my lovely friend sharon who has been running around lie a mad lady for the past few weeks decorating and moving into her gorgeous new house. I just had to use the gorgeous papers and when I saw a little house on my wild card cart that I hadn't tried I just had to give it a go (...lou confesseses to only ever using the doilley card cut really on her wild card cart and slaps her own hand in disgust!! lol!!!)

I chopped the tops off and popped the little trees through my cuttlebug with the tiny bubbles folder and the inked them green and the pots silver and popped some foam squares to make them pop out. I also popped the roof and little window up too and 'fluffed' up the roof tiles. oh and a little basic grey brad for the door handle!!

I think this card is a cutie and I will definately be exploring my wild card cart a bit more!!!!!
Right I had better pop off to work now and see what mayhem me and the small peeps can create today!!!!!
Thankyou for popping in on me xxxxxxx
