HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

'evening peeps!
Happy Halloween!!!
Wow two posting in one day!! you lucky ducks!! he he!!
Well the trick or treaters have been!! and the cupboard is bare!!! this is the first year that my son Logan hasn't even been tempted to trick or treat! but he had more fun scaring the little ones who came to the door and giving out treats this year!! bless him!
So I thought I would honor the holiday by entering the Totally Gorjuss challenge which is Ooooo Spoooky!!!!
Not that I think this cute little greetings farm witch is toooo spooky. more like a friendly witch if you ask me!! she has been coloured with my copics! the DP is ancient I have no idea where it's from i'm afraid! the ribbon is ribbon oasis and the buttons are from my stash!!
Well that's all from me tonight, I'm off to sit on my doorstep and hope Edward cullen (or emmet or jasper or for that matter even carlisle!!) or any sparkly vampire to pass by for halloween....... it's not classed as being a cougar... because.. they're ancient.......aren't they....? he he

Kenny K challenge - 2x2

Wow it's been an immensly rewarding couple of days for me in blogland!!!
Again thankyou to everyone who has visited and those that have been kind enough to leave such lovely comments!! I truly appreciate it!!
This week over at KKKG  http://kennykkraftygirlzchallenges.blogspot.com/  the challenge is to use two of things!
I did this card a little while ago now and she is perfect!
I used the lovely uptown angel image and coloured her with my ever faithful copics. I have used 2 DP's which are american crafts and 2 lots of doubled prima flowers attached with 2 brads!! so I think this covers the 2 criteria Lol!!! I like the bright and breezy feel of this card! especially now with winter looming so real!! but hey! winter means christmas!! alway look on the bright side!!! Oh my goodness I've gon' don' it again!!! another song stuck in my head for the day!!! Lol!!!
Thanks for looking in!

pretty pink baby Tilda

Pretty in Pink!
Am I showing my age!!! Lol! wow I used to Luuuurve all those brat pack films!!
So I am going to combine 3 challenges today! over at just magnolia  http://justmagnolia.blogspot.com/  the challenge is pink! and at Wild orchid crafts http://wildorchidchallenge.blogspot.com/  it's pastels!! and at totally tilda  http://www.totallytilda.blogspot.com/ it's pink and pearls.
Isn't she just adorable!! Is it just me or do stamp companies sometimes make it impossible for you to see how lovely the stamp is with huge watermarks?!? This stamp was one example, It wasn't until I saw a card with it on that I realise just how cute she was!
So I have coloured her with my copics, on this card I used distress stickles, the jury is out on these stickles! I found them really difficult to use, I couldn't get any out, then half the bottle would sploosh out!! how's that for a technical term!! sploosh!!!! Lol and I know they're meant to be a more subtle glitter but they hardly glittered at all!! and we all know I like me a bit of bling!!! the 2 white doilies i puched with a martha stewart corner punch on a circle! the flowers are all wild orchid crafts the leaves and dragon fly are magnolia die cuts! I love the little dragonfly
As you can see I have used 2 and 3d it! Oh and the embossing on the sentiment is cosmic shimmer true white embossing powder! thought I would mention that as it is the best white embossing powder I have found!!
Thankyou for looking in

This week KK releases some new christmas digi's and I just couldn't resist this cutie!!!
She's called Christmas shopping!! And I can tell you I don't look this cheerful when I'm lugging around bags of christmas shopping!!Lol!! I think she must be buying loads of crafty treats for herself!!!
I have coloured her with my copics in my fav. colour comb of BG's and B.V.'s with a bit of red and green thrown in for good measure!! For her fur trim I am rather pleased with myself i mixed some doodlebug flock with some doodlebug glitter, both white!! added just a pinch of martha stewart crystal clear and diamond sparkes and have made a totally yummy glittered flock!!!
The ribbons I must give a big shout out to Ribbon oasis  http://www.ribbonoasis.co.uk/ they sell the most amazing range of quality ribbons, at great prices!!! periodically they do a "ribbon share" where they send you some delicious ribbons and all you have to do is send them pictures of your creations!! I was lucky enough to recieve a pack last week, and haven't stopped smiling yet!!  the snoflake dies are marianne design.

kenny K challenge - sketch

 Happy Saturday!!
Wow the weather here is appalling! I am have real issues photo graphing my cards as there is precious little in the way of natural light!!!! A wee shout out if any one in blogland can give me any tips about taking pictures with un-natural lights I would be truly grateful for any help!!!!!
Anyway that being said I am rather pleased with this beauty!!! I have followed the sketch  http://kennykkraftygirlzchallenges.blogspot.com/ on kenny k's,  she's called devilish Donna! but I think she looks kinda sweet in this card!!!! I can't take credit for the copic colour scheme however!! (as much as i would like to!!) I took inspiration from who is quickly becoming my heroine!! Paper babe! http://paperbabe.blogspot.com/ I am always blown away by her work!!!  the rest of the card I can proudly say is all my own creation!!
Thanks for looking in!
hope to see you soon
