Busy Busy

This Prima  paper is gorgeous IRL, just found it a WEEEE bit hard to make a card with....think I might have gone overboard! It looks kinda busy.... it must be that girl with the paintbrush's fault!  I have all these new yummy prima flowers but couldn't use any on this cos it was TOOOOOO MUUUUCHH!
  Anyway the stamp is a Kraftin Kimmie image called Lola Da Vinci. The challenge at Kraftin Kimmie is to use buttons & bows, and CCT is ribbon-tastic.
  Off to snuggle with my boys ( four-legged hairy ones, as the two-legged one is at work tonight) and relax with a book now I think.

How shabby is that!

The challenge at The Sugar Bowl this time is a sketch including shabby chic.  I've had these MME papers for ages and they are so perfect for this theme. Coloured with distress inks know...shabby equals distressed!  Used  a Gorjuss girl  this time for a change.
 Hope no-one is eating, but I just had to clean a poodle bum...not a particularly pleasant experience I tell you.  This boy is having his butt shaved tomorrow, kling-ons in the curls are so hard to extract!

We went!

Yes, we did go to training! I feel so virtuous! Well...apart from all the housework that needs doing but I just can't bring myself to attend to...!
 This card is for several challenges. I've used some yummy SU textured paper and my new Manga Coffee time and made an easel card this time. I've watercoloured with distress inks, and used distress stickles on my flowers.
 The sketch is from Papertake Weekly,
A Spoonful of Sugar challenge to use Distress Inks, pearls & glitter

At Long Last!

Finally got time to play with a digi or two today...but haven't achieved much else ! This is another Sassy Cheryl image and the paper is BG origins. I have followed a sketch for Create 4 Fun.

 I have results to send in to the Kennel club, house to tidy, washing to fold, lawns to mow......sigh!Can't be bothered! Can I be bothered to take Riley to training tonight? Nah! But I should....but will I ? Watch this space!

Too busy

Haven't done much in the way of cardmaking this week, our big dog show is this weekend and I've been stressed out!!! First , our club secretary forgot to order the sponsors product for prizes,thankfully they did a rush job for us and it has arrived. Secondly the sashes haven't been finished yet!!!!! They were ordered 6 weeks ago! Luckily one of our competitors is coming from that neck of the woods so she will be bringing them for us! Can't wait till Monday and its all over!
  Anyway this card is for a number of challenges. I love these colours together, and I've used some scraps of SU paper for this. The image is one of Mo's Digis.I've coloured with copics, added some glossy accents to the flowers and used my new grass fibre from Meyer Imports. Its so cool!

A bit girly!

Don't know if I like this, not really my colours!  Anyway, had to use this image, its another Sassy Cheryl, and they are so cute!!!  The sketch is for Create 4 Fun, and I've used some older SU papers ( aren't I good?), SU card, ribbon and sentiment, an EK success border punch, Tracy's MS heart punch, Prima bling and of course my copics! Speaking of which , I have been making an MDF holder for my copics, with plenty of room for extras. Nothing like wood, jigsaws, levels, nails, and glue for a bit of therapy! LOL! Tracy tells me that after I have perfected it I can make her one too.....!!!!???!!! We shall see.....

Sugar Bowl

Tiets has a sketch for this weeks challenge over at the Sugar Bowl. She does amazing cards and I love using her sketches!  I've used one of my new Sugar Nellie images, they are so cute.  The paper I've had for ages, its K & Co I think! Can also enter this in the Doodle Palace challenge which is lots of layers!

Blue & Green

Michelle Perkett has a new challenge, to use one of her digis and  create a card in blues & greens.  This is the first time I've got around to using this digi I bought a while ago , I have been busy with dog show it is almost out of the way I'm finding it hard to talk myself into sitting inside and creating. It is so nice outside , tho a bit humid after the rain we had yesterday.
  The card & paper is all SU and flowers are Prima, and I've coloured with copics...of course! Have just ordered more copics...sssh , don't tell Tracy I've been spending again!

We haven't had rain for ages, so its great for the garden! And its still warm so I'm not complaining.  Won't feel so bad stuck at the computer compiling the catalogue for our show coming up!
 I managed to sneak some me time last night and made a card or two for challenges.  This one is following a sketch on Friday Sketchers challenge and using monochrome tones of 1 colour  and white for secret crafter Saturday challenge.  This a lot of purple! The image is one of my new Sugar Nellie Mangas, coloured with copics.  The paper is all Kaisercraft, and the cardstock & sentiment are SU.

Nuther Sassy

I Love these Sassy Cheryl digis, decided I had to use another one.  She has a sale on  for today only so why don't you head on over! Cardstock & ribbon are SU . Am still using scraps of Cosmo Cricket paper. Maybe I need to go shopping.....
 This card is for the CCT challenge, using spots & dots and Stamp With Us: A Thank You card, using something SU.

  Brodie had a fun playdate yesterday with Solomon who is a real waterbaby Golden retriever and Brodie learned how to cool down by plonking himself down in the paddling pool. We finally have a dog who uses the pool for more than just standing in and drinking out of! Here is a pic of Brodie last night, too tired to do much else but keep me company while I made my card. Pity he chose Riley's bed to rest in ! Maybe I need to dot some of his beds around the house too.

The image is a Dustin Pike digi and I've used the colours for Copic Colour challenge ie E18, E42 and E77.
Paper is some old SU bits, and ribbon and cardstock is SU. And theres NO ORANGE Trace!

Brodie Strikes Again!

Brodie really is so cute, you can't be mad at him but poor piggy has been gutted ! Yes, the fluff was everywhere!! Hmmm.... he seems to like his soft toys minus any substance ie gutless!
 And here he is on the poodle bed....well kind of....the lump is too big  to fit of course!Lets just hope he doesn't decide to unstuff the dog beds too!

Oh dear!

My attempt for Magnolia Downunder has turned out a bit....ORANGE!  Didn't mean it to be quite so ORANGE! And the wings kinda changed colour after I covered them with crystal effects and they're very YELLOW/ORANGE! Oh well....the challenge was a sketch and to include girly and ORANGE. Guess I've done that......

Overgrown Puppy

Don't know if Brodie thinks he's a puppy or a poodle or what! Here he is trying to claim a poodle bed (at least he's not lying on top of it this time), and watching TV on Gav's lap! Mr Elegance !

Happy with this!

I like this card...the papers ( K & Co Wild Raspberry)  are some of my favs and haven't ever used this High Hopes stamp before but its a cutie!( Sigh, I have a lot of uninked rubber already and am expecting more soon!!!!)
I followed a great sketch for Create 4 Fun and  thought I could enter this in this weeks Cupcake Craft challenge which is Four legged and furry! And of course High Hopes Stamp challenge which is a valentine theme...well this is as close as I'll ever get to making a valentine card! LOL! The theme for By the Cute & Girly is love. What says love better than a girl and her dog!
