Warm Hands Warm Heart

Hello - 
We have just started a brand new challenge at All Dressed Up blog. I have created this card using an image called Warm Hands Warm Heart. There seems to be a lot of people going through testing times at the moment with family and health problems so this card goes to all them to send them love and hugs. It certainly puts my little strops about how long our rennovations are taking into perspective!
I might add some embellishments to this card ... when I find them! Its seems a bit empty down the bottom so Ill attach another photo if I do. 

Right - I'm off for a run before it gets too cold!

Connected for sound

Morning all - today there is a new challenge at The Paper Shelter blog and the theme is music or dance. I chose to so Music and used this image called Connected
as I had the perfect paper to go with it. Also all my music now comes from my laptop or phone... the wizardy of wireless speakers!!

 So I now have a virtually completely working kitchen so my morning (Before I go to work) is going to be spent cleaning it ready to be re stocked ! It a small pleasure but I've waited soooo long for this moment - just the rest of the house to finish now!!!

Hope you will all enter the challenge and play along - I love seeing what you are create

New shoes can change your life.

Morning - there is a new challenge beginning at I love Promarkers and the theme is to use 3 of something - fab theme isn't it as I've always been told three gives a good balance in design. For my card I used a sponsor image from Bugaboo called Frame it - Cinderella.
I used three coloured matts to layer the image as well as three colours and three embellishments with the pearl gems. I coloured the image with Promarkers and I added loads of stardust stickles to make the shoe shine... afterall everyone needs sparkly shoes and who knows when a pair of shoes will change your life!!

I hope you will all enter this fab challenge - can't wait to see what you create! 
Hope you like my Cinders!

Happy Buddhist Bernie

Morning - I took this picture late last night as I'm currently staying at my Mums dog sitting -  two benefits... there is no dust and there is a cooker!! Downside is I have even less crafty stuff and had to take this photo with a lamp so apologies for the quality of the photo.
So whilst I have been away from the reno's I've coloured up Buddhist Bernie.
He is such as fabulous image and would fit so many occassions -  I tried to play with my skin tones too! I think they have worked out pretty good.

 So Im hoping by the end of this week I may have a fully fitted working kitchen.... I do now have a working bathroom with shower and bath with running hot water!!! I love a bath but I'm going to wait until its all painted and cleaned properly so I can relax with some music and wine. Can you guess what Image I'll colour that week?? Lol!
Right - Better get back to the white paint being sucked up by the fresh plaster!!

Autumn Enchantment

Morning -  We have a new challenge starting at The Paper shelter and the theme is Autumn colours! What a lovely topic to play with and the colours are so beautiful. I really enjoyed colouring this image called Autumn Enchantment.
I didnt know what colour to do her hair and then earlier this week we had a little frost and dew on the car and ground as I went off to work at 6.30 am so I decide to give her silver frosty hair and it goes perfectly with the colours in the paper from My Minds Eye. 
I also a little Birch tree die I got free with a magazine recently as I thought it need something else down the side and as I've already mentioned my available embellishment stash is running low of choice... (Can't wait to get my house and craft room back!!!)

Right all for now from me - Im on dog sitting duties this week so need to go and tire him out before I go to work.
Have a lovely day and I hope you will all join in the challenge for a chance to win a cracking voucher for more Paper Shelter images!!

Lol! You wait - when I get my new craft room organised and unpacked -my cards will be so fancy and fussy at all the embellishments I re-discover!!
