Spots & Stripes

This fortnight at Southern Girls we want to see projects with "Spots and/or Stripes". Our 2 lovely sponsors are Little Claire and Dtsart
For my card I have used a cute image from Little Claire called VW Campervan. I had an ulterior motive for picking this's the other half's birthday in a  couple  of weeks time and he loves our VW van so what could be better?

The paper is MME that I've had for soooo long, still trying to use up some stash!  The washers (well it IS a guy's card!!!) are from a hardware store, coloured with alcohol inks and finished with glossy accents.  

I'm entering this in Deep Ocean Challenge- more than 2 colours
and Tuesday Taggers- Lots of layers

It's Zoe's Birthday!!!!!

We thought it would be fun to share the excitement of today and as a fun way to get everyone involved we have a surprise for you!!  Check out this image especially drawn for Zoe by Little Miss Muffet Stamps which features a Sweetheart dress for any occasion with a festive Gumnut flower sun hat.  The Zoe Hatter image will be available as a freebie for today only in celebration for Zoe's Birthday!!  How cool is that?!  If you want to play along, just email Barbara at and as long as it's September 27th anywhere in the world then the offer is still open!!  Share you're creations in the MiC FB Group too - we'd love to see what you make!

Happy Birthday Zoe !!!!!

It's A Boy!

A  quick card from me this time, my hands are sore ( recovering from building a fence!!!!!!)  so I didn’t really feel the love from my copics! LOL!

A good friend is due to give birth sometime in the next 3 weeks so I thought it was time to make a card for her. They’re expecting a boy……just hope its right or there’ll a baby girl wearing a lot of blue, and a tiny leather jacket and very cool kiddie boots that were presented at the baby shower a while ago…..hehehehehe!

This cute image from MIC is Mother and baby. I had to laugh when I saw the hair being pulled, every time I pick up one of her poodles, he pulls my hair with his teeth.  Good thing he is adorable or I might take offense!

I don’t normally do clean and simple cards, this is as clean & simple as I ever get . The paper is Kaisercraft and the gorgeous chippie frame is another of Zoe’s little masterpieces of cutting, just perfect for finishing off the card. I tucked the image in behind the frame at the bottom and popped it out up the top and it looks quite effective IRL!

Where to start?

My Mojo has gone on holiday, I just couldn't even think what I could share with you all this week!  There is cotton wool in my head.....arrrgh! Must be something to do with the crazy spring weather we've been getting. We've got gorgeous warm sunshine now, half an hour ago it was  hail. There was a huge dump of snow on Mt Taranaki last night, it 's looking magnificent !

Luckily I have a pile on my desk with half-started images and untouched images and orphans....unloved, unused and abandoned!!!!!   and I  found in this mega-huge pile some previous merges I had done and never got around to colouring. What could be better than Sophie day dreaming in Paris?  And pencil colouring on kraft too, something I have really begun to enjoy .  I played around a bit with the skin colours this time and can honestly say I've no idea what I used! LOL! She looks a bit sunburnt  I think.....

The paper is Prima Romantique, perfect for Paris of course.

The Background is the Ivy, window and wall from the paris elements  collection, and I've placed Sophie on a chair which can also be found in the Paris street cafe elements. I merged these images in Microsoft Word , so easy to do with Zoe's fab images as she spends so much time making them user friendly in this way. We LOVE YOU ZOEEEEEEE!!!
