Lets do it.... but what??

Hello - anyone else not really sure what day it is? That weird time between Christmas and New Year when everyday feels like a Sunday... so this image High Score Hugh seemed perfect. We have rarely been dressed before midday and I'll admit somedays the Pj's have stayed on all day!! Its so nice to relax and although we still have decorating to do in the house - the main living spaces are done and we had a big party with all our relatives, friends and neighbours to say Thank you for feeding us and generally putting up with all the noise and mess all year!!

So admit it - how many of you have sat in front of the TV or your games in your comfy Pyjamas and eaten left over buffet food?? Im not sure if "Lets do it" is a rally cry to get up and out or a supportive lets allow ourselves to slob out!!  I applaud you all either way and wish everyone a very Merry New Year!!

Robins? or am I Quackers?

So I've been doing some experimenting lately with stretching my stash due to my little self imposed embargo on crafty spending - so I have been looking at other ways I can use images, altering them slightly through cropping, focusing on one part of an image or colouring them differently to change the image. (Obviously I am aware of copyright etc and abide by all the rules - they remain the original image and are always credited as such!) And here is one such way... I learnt this idea after doing a fabulous Copic colouring course with wonderful Faye (May on your colouring folk will know who I mean instantly) where we changed chicks into Robins and Pengiuns so I thought I would change this Dr Digi image called Quackers into Christmas Robins!
So what do you reckon ?? Am I Quackers at trying this idea?
Have a lovely Sunday

1st christmas

Hello - the new challenge is open at the Paper Shelter and the winners are listed from the blog hop comments. You can see them all here. The comment I picked was Granmargarets comment but I am very grateful to everyone who left a comment and took park in our blog hop - Thank you so much for your positive words.

So for the new challenge I have used an image called Christmas stocking and I've used it to make my Niece a christmas card.

So there is a little holiday for the Paper Shelter DT over Christmas but we will be back in the new year with lots more inspiration and challenges for you to play along with

Have a fabulous christmas and very merry New Year!

Happy Christmoose

Wow - its been a bit of manic week - Rushing to get the house into a fit state as I had some friends staying over after our works christmas do - A promise I made in about September when we still believed our building work would only take 4-5 months!! But we have managed to get most of the important bits done so we have fully functioning kitchen, Bathrooms and bedrooms ! Whoop! Anyways at the christmas do there were dodgems... not the best idea when drunk as the pain in my neck proves everytime I raise my arm so mostly things have been going slowly today.So I finally got round to make this later on today than planned -  hope you don't mind!
How cool is Mortimer the Moose... and we all love a pun here at Dr Digi - so here he is wishing you a Happy Christmoose.

Have a great week, See you back here next week!
