Now onto my card , where I have attempted to merge as many MIC digi images as I could.  Ok, my first attempt had so many in it I would've been able to wallpaper my craftroom with it so I had to cut it back to a manageable size. guess I won't win the prize for the most images merged now..... : (

Anything goes

Ever have one of those weeks when 
nothing goes your way?  I'm having so much fun  ,NOT! trying to recover lost digi downloads , photos etc as our brand new computer poo-ed itself over the weekend.   Apparently they call it infant mortality in the electronics business. If the hard drive is going to fail, it usually happens in the first six months, so we got the cot death of computers! Bah!!! Of course, being new, I hadn't bothered yet to do an external backup anywhere....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

The good news is that Vinnie is feeling much better and is almost his old self again. Check up on Friday and fingers crossed we wont have this problem again.
And my little gingernut Riley did so well at the agility champ show over the weekend. He got faster and more confident with every run.  Three clear round certificates with a 5th place, a 6th place and an 8th.  Go the Ginga!   Howvere, we wont talk about Brodie, as one of the judges said to me...." He's a typical goldie , they are BLONDE!"   She's allowed to say that, she has two of them! LMAO!

Now on to my card for the Southern Girls Challenge for this fortnight. Anything Goes! Yay!  Our sponsors are Stamp Fairy and Simply Betty.
I've used a Simply Betty image called  Prezzies for Lola you can find HERE.  

Paper is basic gray, that I've had for years, with a Whimsy sentiment, hand dyed seam binding , some chipboard hinges I found in my stash and coloured with copics.

How about a bit of blue....

OK, blue mushrooms and blue hair? Well, its possible I'm sure!!!!!
  This weeks challenge at Make it Colourful is to use blue , with other colours.   We are sponsored by Tiddly Inks and I've used the gorgeous Briar - Dogs R Fun and merged it with Make it Crafty  Mushroom house .

I've used Make it Crafty chipboard for the flower centre, the butterfly and the leaves. I love these leaves!
Around the edges I used distress crackle paint , a magnolia label die, a heart cut with my silhouette,  SU sentiment and hand dyed seam binding. The flower is made with crinoline and tulle, dyed with distress inks.  The paper is MME Stella Rose Hattie and I love these colours ! 

I'm absolutely shattered after working all week, and stressing about poor wee Vinnie the Poo.  He has recurrent infections in his jaw so had to have four teeth pulled out under anaesthetic yesterday after an xray to find the problem spots. Poor baby is so sore, he cried quite a bit during the night, even with pain relief, wouldn't eat yummy soft food offered last night and all day today.  I did manage to feed him some cat food off a spoon tonight so I think he must be starting to feel better!  He'll probably insist on cat food now! LOL!  Hopefully tonight we might get some sleep........

Turtles are it!

Just back from a fantabulous weekend at a Dog Training conference with some amazing speakers and I'm all inspired about how I'm going to fix my problems ! LMAO!   Met some great people, spent lots of money , now I'm not looking forward to a whole 4 days of work! EEEK!

I was asked a while ago to make a card for a friend's auntie who loves turtles. That was the only direction I got....hmmmm.....but luckily I had this cool image from Crissy Armstrong so I managed to make her a card which she apparently loved.

Bling it!!!

Its a new challenge over at The Emerald Faerie Garden Challenge blog  and we are challenging you to BLING it!  How easy is that!   I've used the darling Ebony from  The Garden Emerald Faerie ( Deb's Creations) .

I have to admit this card went through several transformations. Gorgeous paper but what i first put together was so horrendous I almost keeled over in shock!  EEEEKKKK!  LMAO!
Anyway, after much ripping of paper and gnashing of teeth I managed to alter it enough that I didn't feel too embarrassed to show it in public. Why is it that what you see in your head to start with turns out nothing like you imagined?
So, the paper is Kaisercraft Gyspy Sisters, and the tag comes in a sheet at the back of the pad with other designs. I just stamped on to it .
The corner flourishes are from Make it Crafty , covered in stickles , with no help from the cat this time.  The gorgeous lacy ribbon I bought goodness knows where, and the 
eyelet was added with a crop-a-dile thingamijiggy.
