CES Challenges DT Card.............A Winter Ragamuffin......

Hello my lovely peeps how are you all? I'm sorry that I'm behind on my commenting again but we changed internet supplier..........HUGE darn mistake but we thought it was better value for money & now the darn thing keeps disconnecting............grrrrrrr!!!! Hubster was on phone to them for 3 hours yesterday & looks like we need an engineer come out!! Will catch up today my dear friends.

Anyway onto my card & it is of course time for CES Challenges......this week our lovely Kaylou chose the theme which is perfect for all those crimbo cards we still need to make lol...........
SNOWFLAKES
Here is my offering...........

Yes I've used another Saturated Canary image by the fabby Krista Smith..............I did tell ya bout my addiction didnt I??? lol.


All papers have had a snow effect using embossing powder. These papers are not christamassy but I'm being good & not buying anymore papers as I have LOADS from last year.........but Emma no longer sells them lol. Anyway to make these christmassy I stamped snowflakes on the bottom sheet of paper with versamark & heat embossed them & on the 2nd sheet I stamped a sentiment.

This beautiful image is called 'A Winter Ragamuffin'.........ner she cant be a ragamuffin she too darn pretty!!
She is of course printed onto Kraft & coloured with Prisma pencils. I added snowdrops using white enamel

Snowflakes were made using a Whimsy die & the small ones from a punch in my stash. They were all cut from vellum & heat embossed with white & silver. White Heather flower (love these) &
 blue cherry blossoms were from Wild Orchid Crafts. Added drops of enamel to everything to make it look as tho its snowed everywhere lol..........I'm wishing for a white crimbo lol, not too bad tho so Ben & Megan can still drive over lol.
Well better go now my lovelies.
See ya soon my lovelies, thank you for stopping by.
Also welcome to my new followers, thank you soooooo much for joining me hope you like what you see.
Huge huggles to all xoxoxoxox

Pink Punkette.............

Hello my lovelies I'm very late today lol. Thank you for the get well wishes regarding my wrist its getting better slowly..........I am struggling to colour tho. I have made a card tho yayyyy luckily I do have a lot of images already coloured up. This is another gorgeous image by Krista over at Saturated Canary & I coloured her a couple of weeks ago at the time when I was trying new colour combo's............
This gorgeous pretty thing is 'Pink Punkette'..........

Isn't she just sooooo pretty I absolutely love her hair even tho its not long & flowing its just as awesome.

Papers are a mixture so here goes........... bottom layer is Raspberry Road - Fight Like A Girl, which let me tell you is absolutely beautiful!!!!
The striped one is Basic Grey I think.....
The top one with the tiny pink flowers is V&A Hanoverian, I think its oldish, I think lol.
All have been matted onto pale grey A4 card & paper edges were distressed with Versamagic 'Sahara Sand' chalk ink.

All flowers were from Crafty Emma's Store, large pink 1 has been sprayed with matt white florist spray.
Sentiment I think is Whimsy.

Image has been coloured with Copics, I will try to find the list of colours tomorrow.....I do have it............somewhere......lol.

Pearls, lace & ribbon from my stash. Corner cut out using Marianne die & bunting cut out using WOJ die, not sure where the spotty paper is from. Butterflies punched out with mini punch.

A CAS Crimbo card..........yeah I know me & CAS arrrgghhhh

Hello my lovelies bit later today. Firstly I want to welcome my new followers & say thank you soooo much for joining me big hugs to you all.
Secondly I want to say sorry as I'm really behind on my commenting I've not done any today yet. My right wrist is sooooo painful, the doc says she thinks I have inflamation in the tendons so if it doesnt settle I've got go have it xrayed. So typing is very slow & last night it was so sore I couldnt even craft. So I thought I would show you a CAS crimbo card I made the other day.
Now you know me & CAS are not great together.......I like all my poofy things to tart it up a bit lol. Still not sure about this card but I'm gonna show ya anyway cus me loves ya lol....
WOW..........I find these sooooooooo hard to do!!!
The paper is 'Country Christmas' by Raspberry Road, yeah I went shopping the other day lol, well a girl's gotta do what a girls gotta do!!! hee hee 
The A4 card used for matting was actually my last sob sob.......need to find more cus it has a lovely sheen to it. The sentiment is a freebie from Bizzy Becs which I got...........a while ago I think lol.
Pearls, pearl & gold button & chiffon ribbon are from my stash. Cut corners out using a cuttlebug die thing.

My next 2 piccies are of my gorgeous Boxer Bailey.

These I took the other day we were sitting in the conservatory & the camera was right next to me so I clicked away lol. This is how he sits a lot of the time, he is actually watching tv would you believe lol.

He really is a character........a big cuddly soft one at that. (psst excuse the mess, I have crafting stuff on the table where I was colouring lol & paint tubs in the corner as the bungalow is getting a make-over in time for santie lol.

Well I'm away now for a hop I will get round to you all but my comments will be short for now lol. I am gonna try to craft later so wish me luck lol........my stocking is on my wrist & I'm stinking of deep heat lol.
Thank you as always for stopping by I really do appreciate your time. mmwah

Christmas Eve Mermaid...........


Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well I took my youngest Jake school this morn he looked soooooooo smart........they had new uniforms in september & they have to now wear blazers, Jake was dreading it. However with the very small children & the very tall ones they had problems with the blazers so it was friday when he finally got his. Jake is tall & has quite a stocky build, he could pass for a bouncer you see at doors when he wears a black jacket lol. So I took him school looking very smart but rather unhappy, he has a maths exam today & also he thinks he looks like a 'plonker' lol.

Anyway its my card for Crafts & Me store blog today & I REALLY need to get a crack on crimbo cards & I went into the hobbit & found this image. I coloured her & glittered her& the poinsettia's just before my break but then completely forgot about her........so here she is now finally on a card.
This is 'Christmas Eve Mermaid' by the fabulous Hannah Lynn exclusive to Crafts & Me Store, I coloured her the same colours as Hannah had for hers.

Lace, velvet ribbon & snowflake charm are all from my stash.

Instead of decorating the inside to match the front I have lined the back with another sheet of card so it feels as strong as the front.....the fronts always feel stronger cus they have so many layers on them. I've then added a sheet of thick paper & part-stamped the image & then added a sentiment. Hopefully it will save me time instead of decorating inside.........unless for family & special ones if you know what I mean.
I coloured her with Copics..........not sure of colours tho. The sky I actually forgot about til I had made my card & then last minute I stuck my finger into some 'Metallic Rub-On' & rubbed it in the background.

Materials used were........ Websters Pages christmas papers, edges inked with Vintage Photo......, matted on top of 'Olive Green' A4 Card, altho they only seem to have the paper I think now.
Suede feeling A4 card for the card base.
2 red poinsettia flowers covered in glass glitter & a gold pearl added to the centre, I removed the stamen thingy's.........my techincal term for things lol.
The holly& cherries was a crimbo decoration thing from last year from Wilkinsons.

Crafts & Me have new shipping charges which you can check out here.

Well thats all from me folks thank you soooooooo much for stopping by & for your lovely comments I will see you all during today.
Huge huggles to you all mmwah xoxoxoxox

Saturated Canary............Nevaeh.......

Hello all you lovely people how are you? Are you all enjoying your weekend? Well I'm back with another of Krista Smith's fabulous images.........I did warn you will be seeing a lot more lol..........I do have a different image for you tomorrow tho lol.
The card today is very much different to yesterday, a lot simpler but still with a beautiful image.
This is Nevaeh by the fabulous Krista Smith
Quite a simple card for me dont ya think lol.
Isnt she sooooo pretty. You can of course get her in the Saturated Canary Etsy shop here.
I've used 1 layer of White Web ribbon on the bottom & a layer of  Raffia Lace Ribbon & a strip of DP on top splodged with some acrylic paint & very light pink pearls from my stash.
The DP's are all Echo Park & I have used 6x6 card blank & pink rose all from Crafty Emma's Store.
Bottom layer had white acrylic splodged around the edge & the pink spotty papers & pink rose got sprayed with Oasis matt spray it just gives a softer look to things its a very delicate spray, the pink paper has been sprayed more than once would you believe.

A close-up of this beauty, she is of course coloured with Copics but she has been coloured up for couple of weeks so didnt write the colours down......sorry peeps. White paint splodged around edge of image & punched the edge with my notebook punchy thing lol.

Grey A4 card used for matting from my stash & both sentiments are Whimsy & I used the postage die to cut them out. I love Whimsy sentiments lol.

Well I think thats it  my lovelies I'm off for a bit of a hop around before I go Ben & Megans. Thank you soooooooooooo much for your lovely comments yesterday on my 'Queen Of Hearts' card it really did mean so soooooo much & from the bottom of my heart I thank you.
Huge huggles xoxoxox
