Life Sucks!

Well, Brodie thinks so! He's had a wee op on his toe, after splitting the nail lengthways by hooning around like a chook with its head cut off, and sliding on our floors.   The Broddley is feeling sorry for himself after having his toe shaved, the nail cut almost right off and and now he's a conehead! Hahaha!

Favourite Colour(s)

Yippee!  I'm guest designer at Phindy's Challenge Blog this week ! As always the DT have come up with some gorgeous inspiration for you so pop on over and check it out!
 I love these images and got to pick one for this card and off course I couldn't resist this gorgeous Christmas cutie called " Riding Rudolph" which you can purchase  HERE . Phindy has her Christmas images on sale at the moment so check it out.
  This image reminds me of my old boy Bruno lying quietly while the nieces sat on him!

 The challenge is to use your favourite colour. Well, mine changes from time to time but at the moment red is number one , particularly with this shade of blue/green so its my fav combo. The papers are BG Fruitcake from eons ago and I've coloured with copics, punched snowflakes and stickled like crazy and the sentiment is from Catslife Press. I used a spellbinders die for the cut out behind the image, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts (and I've twisted them around the crystal stem...again!)

  Phindy also has a huge celebration going on with all sorts of extra fun events happening over at PaperCraft Planet  which you can also read about at Phindy's Blog  .

So come on , have some fun !!!

Lots of Glitter

The challenge this week at Southern Girls is to use glitter. Easy Peasy...except I added stickles to my mushroom house and the red ran! Aaaargggghhhh!  So second attempt I used Sparkly fluff and Diamond dust instead . Hence the chunky bits on my mushroom house.  LOL!  The door is covered in Glossy accents, the fairy who lives in here polishes her door regularly...unlike me, I have dog paw and nose prints on mine!

This cool image is another from Make it Crafty....I love these houses!   

 The paper and flowers are Prima and I've distressed and glittered a doily . Believe it or not I found some cute little mushrooms in my idea why I bought them but I found a use for them !!!!
 So now, head on over to the Southern Girls challenge blog and see what my talented teamies have been up to, and why not join in our challenge. Don't forget we have two prizes up for grabs. You have two weeks to produce a project with glitter!  Easy Peasy! 

I'm entering this card in the Make it Crafty Challenge which is distressing .

Will Pay You to take Him!!!

Yep! Not just FREE to a good home, we'll give you money as well!!! What has the Brodus done this time you ask? Picture this......  two  friends  around for dinner, Pete provided the leg of lamb which I don't get ahead of yourselves, the lamb was safe!  Nestor ( single, cute, Spanish and cooks a mean paella!!!) made a cheesecake which he brought around for dessert. This man is a legend! Anyway, yummy dinner, DIVINE cheesecake, enough left for dessert for several nights...made the mistake of not immediately putting it in the fridge. Hmmmm. Riley was nutting off which he does when Brodie is up to something....I really must pay more attention to the ginga alarm!  Raced out to see paws on the bench and big pink tongue very tidily trimming the side of the cheesecake. He'd trimmed it almost in half the sod!!!!!!!  Hope he felt sick!!!! He didn't eat the biscuit crumb base but looked like he'd sucked all the cream cheese off it!!!!!!!     Cheesecake anyone?

Witchy Gretchen

Great to see the all the entries for our first challenge at Digi's With Attitude!   This week we are showcasing Grumpy Gretchen - Sexy Witch which you can purchase from the shop here.
 This week the challenge is to use the colours orange, green and purple on your project. 
I've used Basic Grey papers from various lines and distressed edges with vintage photo distress ink

I've added green sisal and stamped a swirl on acetate using a SU Baroque Motif stamp,  which I then layered with the papers and image. I've coloured Gretchen with copics. The sentiment is from Digi's With Attitude!

Now head on over to the challenge blog here and see what my teamies have dreamt up this week!

This paper is KaiserCraft Utopia and I've used flowers and ribbon from WildOrchid. The cardstock is SU, as is the metal clip holding the ribbon,  and I've used a MS punch to cut out the circle. The copper-embossed fence is a MS punch also. I've coloured Gretchen with copics then chalked the background with my SU chalks.
The sentiment is a Digi's With Attitude! sentiment.
