Colour some embellies

Easy one for you this week at Make it Colourful.   Add some colour or change the colour of your embellishments.   On this card I've used Mushroom House and hilly lane along with a hanglar girl I've had for a while  .  I've used copics on the sentiment, crackle paint on the chipboard and distress inks and copics on the flower which looks very orange here but is more yellow irl!  Its true! LOL!

Bring out the hair dye...

Cos its time for a new colour!   A New challenge at Make it Colourful and we want to see some different colour hair ( other than red/blonde, black, brown) !  I immediately thought GREEN!!! Then I thought BLUE!!!! Couldn't I went blue/green instead! LOL!

I've used the gorgeous Sitting Annalise  from Make it Crafty,   and merged her with the background Rise & Shine, also from MIC.

I've painted the chipboard filigree jewel from MIC with gesso and stuck on a dew drop.  The paper is MME Stella Rose Mabel.

Now pop on over to Make it Colourful and check out the cool colour creations from my teamies!

Happy Birthday !!!!

This fortnights challenge from Southern Girls is to create a birthday card.   How easy is that?!!!!

I've used an  image from The Paper Shelter which I bought last week . I actually  made two cards , as I've had a request for 20 cards and its time I got cracking  ( they want 6 boy cards that will be hard! EEEK) but the second is undergoing renovations....I'm not happy with it.....

Paper is BG Kioshi, with gesso on the edges, some cheesecloth, butterflies from Make it Crafty, ticket sentiment from Emerald Faerie garden and the gorgeous ribbon I bought from a local quilting shop ages ago and couldn't bring myself to use it!

I'm entering this card in - Shopping our stash- Out with the Old or in with the New

The show is over....

Yahoo!!!   We had a huge weekend, 13 hours on Saturday and 10 hours on Sunday and I was so knackered Saturday night I came home, had a shower and went to bed , totally forgot about food.
Riley and Vinnie ran well, Vin seems to be running faster again, I guess his mouth isn't sore so he's happy to go for it. Brodie got left at home as I didn't have time to run some energy off him before trying to run a course...poor least he got a walk with his dad on Sunday and Solly came around for a play on Monday while I was at work.

Janie sent me this pic from training on Friday, Riley is bouncing along here yapping away he's so happy! LOL!
