Hi All,
I managed to get a walk in some fresh air this morning as it's not raining (yet !!!)  LoL

This afternoon I have been using my Promarkers to colour a new image I bought - AURORA WINGS - " Mama It's So Fluffy".
I cut it out with dies (don't know the names sorry. ) One is a stitched square and the other is a pretty frame, and a great 2 piece fern/leaf set. I got them from FIKI at her CRAFTY KITTY CAT SHOP.
I used the smallest one and stamped the sentiment using my new 'Stamp Perfect'  by Hampton Art  :-)
The flowers are from a sprig of fake apple blossom that I got at a local e1 shop :-D I pulled them off the plastic stalks and glued some pretty beads in the centre to hold them back together :-D

Have a great day and thanks for popping in.

Hello Peeps.... it's the dreaded Monday again and it's still raining and flooding here in Greece :-(

I am hiding in my craft room again, and today I decided to play with some digital Scrapbooking - which I haven't done in a looooong time :-D 
I bought a cute set from DRAGON's LAIR DESIGNS and a little piggy digi from them too.  If you buy the Scrapkit you get a free Add On. :-)
This set is called "Soft Summer Mini Kit" and the digi image is called "Piggy Love".
Everything was coloured and prepared in Photodraw.

It took me a while to shuffle everything from front to back etc. as I hadn't done any digi scrapbooks for a while, but I had great fun :-)

Thanks for coming by. xx

Happy Sunday everyone,
Continuing my theme of using collected FREEBIES, I have made this card using ' Heart Cats' from BUGABOO paired with papers from the 'Toucan LoveFREEBIE set by LITTLE SCRAPS OF HEAVEN.


Thank you for dropping by xx


My second piece for today is a St Patrick's Day tag to send to a friend :-)
I have used  'CARL O'BRIAN' by SCRIBBLES DESIGNS.  I paper pieced him with some croc skin and enhanced that with Copics, and his hat was done using one of the backing papers.
I cut the card from heavy cardstock. The background papers are from DOODLE PANTRY St Paddy Digi Paper Set . (No longer trading)
I fussy cut Carl and some shamrocks and then I made a little ticket. I tied on a floral button, a beaded stick pin and added some feathers to finish.

I am going to brave the weather down and walk the Doggo down the mountain where I shall have coffee with a chum. psssst.... I've heard she's made cake LoL

Good morning - I hope you are getting a bit of a crafting 'fix' this weekend.  It's still raining here... I didn't even get down to Town as usual on Thursday because it was flooded :-(

Today I have a kitty card to show you.... he's hiding. Can you find him ???   LoL
I have used two images from SCRIBBLES DESIGNS'KITTY FACE' and 'FLOWER POT'.  I put it together in Photodraw. I made multiple pot images and then hid the kitty in the middle before printing it out. I coloured everything with Spectrum Noir markers then cut it out with a stitched circle die. I gave him a set of teeny googly eyes :-D
The background papers are from IMAGINE THAT - SPRING KITTY Set.

Well, it's still dark and very early here so I will pop up and see what the weather is going to do. Hopefully the poor dog will get a walk today. He's a bit of a wuss and won't go out in the rain LoL

Thanks for popping in.

Crafty Friends Challenge #78 - Springtime   10/3

Friday, 23 February 2018


Hi All and happy Friday,

I am here this morning with my card for the LIMITED RUNS FB PROGRESSIVE CHALLENGE. This time it uses this sweet kitty called 'FLUFFY', which is their image for this month.
I have coloured him with Derwent Fine Art Pencils. The backing papers are from First Edition - Animal Antics 8"x8", and the dies are a lovely set from Cheery Lynn Designs.
The sentiment stamp is from Lawn Fawn.


In my Kitty Clan (23 of them) I seem to have had an influx of Gingers recently and I LUV Gingers, so this is a little tribute to them.
At the moment I have Sammy who is about 18 yrs old, Cheesy Puff, Mini Sam, Louis, Clynt - who is a pale ginger and 2 ginger/whites - Kolin and Jelly Bean. There is also a small kittling who creeps in and does a cozy in the cat beds. He is not touchable yet but always announces himself with a small meuw that sounds like "It's Me" so I am calling him Smee  LoL.

Well, thanks for popping in. I'm off for some more colouring now xx

Hello again,
I have some good news.... my chickens have finally started laying eggs again (after about 3 months).
I thought that my remaining 4 were getting too old and the last lot of eggs I incubated gave me no chicklets :-(       It seems though that one or maybe two of them are tired of being freeloading slackers and are giving the goods :-D LoL

Anyhoo - continuing on the chicken theme, here are some more ATCs I have made to enter over at Janis'  celebration over at HER PEACEFUL GARDEN for her 60th Birthday celebration.

These are for her CHICKEN ATC Challenge.

Both were made using chicken Cliparts and using Dovecraft 'Hello Spring' 6 x 6 paper pack.
The first one was cut with a teeny white border and has a nest made from jute strands.

This one I printed out 4 times and fussy cut the parts to layer up for a 3D effect with foamies.

I had a thought....... maybe my chickens knew that I was going to make chicken themed ATCs and the eggs are my reward for doing something 'chickeny'  ? hee hee  :-D

I nearly forgot to put this one before rushing off to make chicken ATCs hahaha

Here is a card commission for a friend's Mum who loves Yorkies. I was inspired after seeing a spinner card on the blog of KT FIT KITTY.

I stamped a yorkie and then copied it in 'flip' mode so he matched on the other side.

The papers I used are from a free gift attached to a magazine - Quick Cards Made Easy. They are  KAISERCRAFT - Sweet Pea Collection.
I used a circle die cut set by Marianne Designs CR1331.

I connected him by sandwiching a beige cord between both images and attaching it to the card underneath the frame.


Good morning All,
Here are some more ATCs that I have made to send to Janis over at HER PEACEFUL GARDEN for her 60th Birthday celebration.

The first one is for her TEA ATC Challenge.
I have used a little image recycled from the front of an old birthday card.
The backing paper is a FREEBIE I got today from FAR FAR HILLS - Spring Love Papers.
I stamped the little cup image and cut off just one of them. I coloured it with Copics and then coated it with Diamond Glaze to make it shiny.

This one uses the same stamp - also coloured with Copics and this time I used embossing glaze on it. The sentiment tag was made using the text from this sweet little set.


I'm off to make some for her Chicken ATC Challenge now :-D
See you later xx

Hi Peeps,
Still raining here in Greece so I continue to colour up some freebies I got recently.  This one is also from MISS RACH and is a 'Baby Moose'.
I coloured him using Derwent Fine Art pencils. I really like these - they are soft and have great colour pigment.

The coloured card is snippets from my box and I made my own Moose background paper in Photodraw. :-)
The moose was cut out with a 'stitched edge' die, and I added some twine I found last week in a local store..... result  !!   :-)

I haven't added a sentiment on this one as I am going to pop him into my stash for a future occasion.
Here's a funny Moose sentiment for you though .......

Hi Peeps,
I am sitting here in not so sunny Greece - it's been raining constantly since yesterday afternoon :-(
I decided to colour up some freebies I got recently.  My first one is this really cute 'Octopus Love' from MISS RACH.
I coloured him with Copics and have used a background freebie from Team Confetti - Fish Colorblok 2, which I picked up from Granny Enchanted HERE.
I picked out colours that go with the paper background. BV00,BV02, G00,BG23,BG09.

Hello Sunday Peeps,

I am doing some more cute schtuff today , building up some card reserves - I know my friend will want some to buy for March :-D

These papers are from Dovecraft and the set is called Couture du Jour.  48 sheets of 8" x 8" with dresses and stuff on them and they have some gorgeous plain papers in there too. I used some of the patterned ones the other day on the bunny card I made HERE.

I used the plainer ones with a Marianne Design CreaTable die...LR0454. The base card is white with a deeper pink back base.
The image is " Spring Bunny Friends " by GERDA STEINER, which is the February image for her  Progressive Challenge.
I coloured them with Spectrum Noir markers and cut them out leaving a teeny white border. They are attached with 3D foamies for a bit of pop. The butterfly is also in that same die set. Then I fussy cut some of the flowers from the same paper set (from the snippets that were left from my card the other day).

Thanks for popping in. 

Have a great day xxxx

Cutie Pie Challenge #120 - Valentine or Mum

Friday, 16 February 2018


Hello Peeps,
Sadly we are on the last day of this great Hop hosted by LEIGH and giving my darker side of Valentine's Day a bit of a shake up LoL
We have had fabulous 5 days and I hope that you enjoyed a bit of the Dark Side :-D

For today's piece I  used this amazing " GOTHIC ROSE " from   LEIGH SB DESIGNS.  
The background is an image of thorns (don't know where I got it from). I spattered it with some 'blood'. Then I mounted it onto black and red cardstock.
The Tag came from a digital scrapbooking set which I printed out. 
I coloured the Rose and then fussy cut it out leaving a teeny white border and stuck it on the tag.
I made the sentiment ziggy in Photoshop and glued it on the bottom.

Next using Leigh's awesome - POE LOVE , I made a sleeve using grey and white card which was die cut with a heart edging. Inside is a red tag for writing secret messages on :-)
I coloured the POE LOVE image and cut out the pieces to add on the front.

This one is an oldy but a goody to show you........ a little bookmark made from a large paperclip and a spooky/sweet image from  DILLY BEANS called ' HEART MONSTER'. I coloured him/her and layered up twice on thick card to make it strong.
I can't seem to find anything from Dilly Beans FB page since Dec 2017, so not sure if they are still trading :-(

Well, that's me done for the Hop folks. I am sad it has ended so quickly :-(
I shall spend some lovely time later this evening or tomorrow Hopping round all the other gorgeous entries and leaving some luuurve.  I have been plagued with migraines this week so been slacking a bit :-(

Thanks for coming in and looking.

Helloooo there Peeps,
I ordered some lovely papers from SAMFLORA last week... and they were a bargain too. Well, DonkeyMail must have been rocket powered because they came in a week !!!!  Shock, Horror.... I nearly fell down :-D

Anyways... these papers are from Dovecraft and the set is called Couture du Jour.  48 sheets of 8" x 8" with dresses and stuff on them. I thought they might work well with a set of clear stamps I have which are all to do with sewing and schtuff....... and I can't find those just now !!  hahahahaha  :-D How typical is that ???

I decided to use them with this cute bunny, which is the February image from DRAGON's LAIR DESIGNS in their FB Colouring Challenge.
I printed the cute bunny out twice - once on white card and once on the patterned paper because I wanted to 'Paper Piece' her dress.  I coloured the white image using Copics but I messed up her face a bit trying to give her pink cheeks :-(

I think she looks like she's trying to decide which outfit to wear today ? !! :-D

I used another piece across the card and made a punched border from the striped paper and added a gingham flower from my stash.

Thanks for popping in. I must go and feed cats now and walk the Dawg :-)

Have a great day xxxx

Hello Peeps,
Well - that schmaltzy time has passed for another year.  YaY :-)
 I am delighted to be playing in this great Hop hosted by LEIGH and giving my darker side of Valentine's Day a bit of a shake up LoL
We have a fabulous 5 days of darker schtuff to see and I hope that some of you will come and play along with us :-D

For today's piece I have made a sort of shadow box from cardboard. I painted it with texture paste first and then used some sprayed paint and tulle, with a lovely sort of feathered cord stuff.... looks a bit like teeny tinsel. I was aiming for a sort of "rust" effect but it didn't quite come off right  :-D  Then I splattered it all with 'fake' blood. The winged hearts are stamps from SMEARED INK (no longer trading) with an image from LEIGH SB DESIGNS - Ode to Poe in the centre. I used just the face from Leigh's awesome Freebie - POE LOVE.
The silk orchid is from my local Greek 1 euro shop.

I also have these to show you. I made them previously and have used IKEsART images " Love is Blind " and " Muse 1 ".

 Love is Blind " using scraps from the bits box and border punches, flowers and googly eyes. The image was coloured digitally. She was then matted and layered onto white card which I splattered with fake blood and border punched.

Muse 1 " Tag using embossed card, jute, die cut hearts, lace and button from my local store. The image was coloured with Promarkers. The Font used is called 'Blood'.

I am working on showing 2 pieces for our final day tomorrow.
