Rainbow Lady #43 - Fashion

As I was up most of last night anyway I decided to make a card for this week's theme of "Fashion" on Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog. A previously un-inked Whipper Snapper stamp watercoloured with SU pens and touched up with Polychromos pencils. Card is SU, feathers were from Hobbycraft and ribbon from Scrapz. A Glitter Girls sentiment and Swarovski crystals finish it off. The photo is the first taken in the miniature photographic studio I got from Amazon and does show the true colours really well but I need more practice to get the lighting just right.

After feeling so much better yesterday I feel I am back to square one AGAIN today. I had been warned by a few people that this virus does this but it doesn't make it any better when I feel so rotten! Wallowing in self-pity here!!

Penny Black Saturday #31 - Pink & Brown

Again another card I made earlier in the week but as it's Friday I'd better get this on!

Feeling a bit better and have super-strength cough suppressant from the Dr this morning so I do have high hopes of a good night's sleep tonight!!

This gorgeous little PB doggy has been coloured with Promarkers and Sakura clear glaze with a sprinkle of Glamour Dust on the rose. Paper is from Basic Grey Bittersweet 6x6 paper pad. Flowers are Prima and Poppycrafts. Sentiment is from Craftwork Cards' sale which I have coloured with ink and then put peel-off sentiment and rose over the top and coloured the rose with Sakura Souffle pen. Card Candy, again from from Craftwork Cards, finishes it off.

Cute Card Thursday # 43 - Have a Giggle

This week on Cute Card Thursday we want you to have a laugh and a giggle and create a humorous card! This is "Ethel" and this wonderful lady and the sentiment are from Creative Expressions "Murray & Ethel Set 2". These sheets are just packed with really funny images and sentiments and she was just perfect for this challenge.

I have coloured her with Promarkers and Sakura Gel pens. Paper is K&Co Wild Saffron, card is SU and flowers from Scrapfairies and Prima.

Back to square one here - I was awake until 5am last night so typing this with bleary eyes and a sore throat.

Rainbow Lady #42 - Green & Black

See - here we go again!! I made this last THURSDAY and of course tomorrow will be a new challenge from Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog so I need to post this NOW!!

Dee Gruenig "Green" ink pad brayered onto glossy card over-stamped with Whispers Tree stamp and mounted onto light then dark green card and then black.

Cuttlebug Challenge #14 & Stamp Something - NOT!

Well I actually made this card for last week's Cuttlebug Challenge which was "All White" and of course I have missed this but fortunately this week's theme is "Favourite Folder" and Swiss Dots is my all time favourite so I'm still entering it!! Also over on the Stamp Something blog they have a challenge NOT to stamp anything so this fits the bill nicely.

Honestly - I really don't know what day it is, although I HAVE managed to stay out of bed all day today so things really are improving!!

Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges - Something Sticky!

OMG how is it Wednesday already??!! The last few days have passed in a blur of being in bed, coughing, sleeping, getting up, going back to bed etc. and I have so lost track of time. Anyhow I managed five hours of uninterrupted sleep last night without coughing so think I may be on the mend - hurrah! Thanks for all your good wishes - they mean a lot.

This week on Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges the theme is "Something Sticky" which can be a peel-off or sticker etc. Pop on over to see what lovlies the DT and our Guest Anesha have come up with.

I have used New Year's Tilda coloured with Promarkers and the DP is from Basic Grey Euphoria 6cx6 paper pad, cut with a Fiskars border punch. An Anita's sticky ribbon, crochet flower from Poppycrafts, some pink Karen Foster Scrap Floss and magazine freebie sentiment finish her off.

I'm not well - AGAIN!

Well having that throat infection has opened me up for all the little germs to come and have a party in my body. I have a "virus" that's going around. Cough, cough, cough, cough and feel wiped out. In bed most of the time and feel dreadful. It's not fair!!

Be back very soon I hope. Keep well everyone.
