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!!

Mood Music for decorating too.

Morning -
Taking a very quick break from painting to share this picture of card I made for Dr Digi using an image called Mood Music.
So the building work is still going on but we are able to crack on with some decorating now which feels like we are getting there... but I have run out of most of stash I didn't box up so my cards are super CAS as the mo!! 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!!
Right - back to it! Have a great Sunday folk!

Stay Awesome

Morning -  We have a new challenge starting at  I love promarker and the theme is always anything goes but with the optional extra of using an Animal.
We are sponsored by Dr Digi and I've used an image called Tyson & Topsy 
on a kraft card base and coloured with promakers. The greeting is a stamp from My Favourite things.
Better crack on with my day... busy busy.
Have a good one - Liz (:(|)x

Good Morning - popping in to show you my latest creation with a Dr Digi image called Ronald the Rhino .
 I hope no one is offended by the comment!! Ha! I enjoyed colouring his skin to give him texture and had to keep it fairly simple with my limited craft stash available to me.
Just shows these images can be used for almost anything anytime!!!

Autumnal Monique

Hello - its started feeling very Autumnal all of sudden around my house! The building work is continuing but I am hopeful after this week we will have a working bathroom and maybe even heating!!!
So my card for this weeks challenge at The Paper Shelter probably reflects this a little in the warm coat and colours! I have used an image called Monique
and theme is Embossing. Fairly easy theme really... if I hadn't packed all my embossing folders away at the bottom of a big pile covered in dust sheets... at least I think thats where they are?? But I did manage to use the little flower dies that have an embossed edge which I think you can just about see on the picture! 

We would love to see lots of entries into the challenge - you don't have to use a Paper shelter image to enter but if you do - you can win a whole load more!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Professor Bens Birthday.

Morning - today is Bens birthday and he's returned home from being on a training course all week so
Professor Wiggingson  seemed very appropriate.
I teamed him up with some Maths formula background paper so it kept the scientific theme going and I tried to make him look like he was wearing caudroy tousers.

So I hope it will be a lazy morning (only one without the builders !!) and then a trip out somewhere for some fresh air away from all the dust!

I hope you all have a lovely day too!

Sleepy Time

Hello - have you seen the new releases over at All Dressed Up? They are gorgeous and there seems to be a theme of sleep! Something I def need more of! I would love to go into hibernation and just wake up when all our building work is finished but that's not going to happen so.... we keep soldiering on!!

I got to play with this cute fox image called Sleepy time  which I coloured with Copics and then added some texture using prisma colour pencils. I die cut the image and used tree paper from Websters pages on a kraft base. I added some lace and a gold greeting from Do Crafts.

I hope you like Foxy - and go to take a look at all the other lovely creations with the beautiful new images.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Cute Zebra says HI!

Morning - the new challenge has just been launched at I love Promarkers . This week’s theme is Anything Goes with the option of   No Patterned papers  and the sponsor is  Fabrika Fantasy
I have used an image called  Cute Zebra 3. I love his little fat belly and all the round shapes so I used that as my design as I really struggle to not use patterened papers!!                                                 
I I coloured him with promarkers and used a Lawn Fawn circle die to cut him out and the red mirri card. I added some blue dots from Papermania and a greeting from Pebbles. As I am still only working on minimal crafty tools and goodies - I didn't have any glaze available to make his balloon shiny unfortunatly. I cannot wait to get my craft room back but it is still some weeks off... think a kitchen and bathroom need to take priority!! Its like camping in my own house at the mo!!! 

Right all from me, Have a great day and I hope you will all join in the challenge.

Birthday Bot celebrates

Morning - for todays Dr Digi card I have used an image called Birthday Bot. The picture is not so great as I took it late last night and I still don't have a craft room and probably won't have for some time yet!
It's the Husbands birthday next weekend and he says he doesn't need anything or want anything as we have spent lots of money lately with all the renovations but is it acceptable to not buy a single gift??? Let me know your thoughts as I still think I should get something!!
Right all for now,
Have a lovely day, Liz (:(|)x

Back To School

There is a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and I have used an image called In the Class
as the theme is Back to School.
I used paper from lawn fawn really rainbow pad and pencil paper from Bella Blvd. I die cut the edges using My Favourite things scalloped stitched edge die and coloured the image with Copics.
