Wally Award

OK, no card, just an embarrassing admission, ....I forgot our planned work Christmas dinner then show on Saturday night! Got a text asking if I was still coming as I was climbing into PJ's!  Eeeek! Last thing I felt like but the boss had paid for our tickets to The Beat I had to get redressed and meet them at the show! ( Missed dinner of course cos I'd already eaten  !!!!)  Going to the dog show on Sunday with only 5 hours sleep was no fun either.....

Its been a busy week and today is my first chance to catch up. I've done washing, mowed lawns, made a christmas cake and ...drum roll...made a card!!!!! I've been having withdrawals, and I really found it hard to get into this card....maybe life will return to semi-normal next week!LOL!
 I made this card for The Sugar Bowl challenge which was a great sketch, including a zig zig.  I've used my BG Wassail papers again, as there are a lot of scraps on my desk!  Couldn't find any ric-rac so made a zig zag with some bling. . The image is coloured with copics.

New Moon

Went to the movies last night with some friends from cool!!!! Always been on team Edward but Jacob was pretty hot when he took his shirt off.........not enough to make me shift teams tho !
 Luckily we went to the 6pm session as the Show Parade was on and the theatre wasn't overflowing, but when we got out, the next lot was waiting to go in in there were people everywhere! Marise was buried in that pile somewhere!

Glitz & Bling

Yes, I know I've been a bit slack lately but just can't seem to get motivated. We have two big weekends coming up at Dog Training and I'm feeling worn out just at the thought of them! I have lots of work to do for them......

  This card is for 4 challenges. Basic Grey challenge which is to include Glitz & Bling and of course something from Basic Grey, and In Style Stamps, which is to include a scalloped edge and one of their cute digi-images .Quixotic Paperie challenge is to use Kraft & Red, and I might just make it into Cute Card Thursday which is Glitter me silly !

Totally gorjuss

It's been so hard to get back into making cards after a few days break and I really didn't feel that inspired with this card! LOL! Anyway, its for a new challenge site Totally Gorjuss, where you must use a Gorjuss Girl of course! This week  is add bling. Hope I've blinged enuff! Unfortunately the piccy looks a bit washed out...the paper is lovely IRL, its Wild Asparagus from MME. Another organza flower, with prima centre. You can't see it very well but her stockings are coloured with AtYou spica glitter pen. I've used the sketch from the Sugar Bowl challenge too.

Easel Card

  The fireworks keep going on, I'll be glad when they ban the private sale of them in NZ, the animals hate them so much. Vinnie doesn't care but  Riley barks very loudly to chase the noise away. Abbie must be going a bit deaf, she's not worrying as much as she used to (which was a lot!) .

  There have been so many people making these cards that I had to have a go and yes, it was vey easy . And it's not even for a challenge!LOL!   The image is a Sugar Nellie  Manga that I watercoloured with Distress inks, think I might love this technique! The paper is K & Co Kim Hodges patchwork paper, very colourful!

Back at last!

Have been away for a few days, catching up with my family on the East coast. We had a great weekend, a nice surprise barbecue tea and breakfast for mum. We started turning up one by one at mum's place, she had no idea what we had planned . When I got there she said, " What are you doing here? What a coincidence, Kathy is here and Den & Berni! " I very vaguely said I'd just decided to come for a drive ( SIX hour drive that is!) LOL! Wasn't till the next lot arrived that she figured out what was going on!
  Anyway ,  new releases this week at Doodle Palace are a cute doggie and xmas stocking and a sweet lion. Bet you can't guess what I used....hmmm.... !   I had to throw this together in a hurry to get it in , in time.
