A SILLY BIT OF WORD PLAY

Me again,
I have been meaning to make this card for a while now and it made me chuckle just thinking about it.
I have used an image from MISS RACH called 'Iguana' and here is what I made.
I used Spectrum Noir markers on him and added Glossy Accents to his glasses.

Does anybody know where Miss Rach has gone ?????  I went to link up to her Blog but it seems empty !!!

I used a free vector called ' Jungle Plants ' for the background, some leaves and a photo of a Hibiscus, which has been fussy cut and layered up with silicone.

Well - I think I have to whizz off and feed the kitties now, so that will probably be all from me today.

Week 2 of the latest Challenge over at IKEsWORLD Challenges is up. We have gone totally ANYTHING GOES now for this year and we sometimes have an optional Twist theme.

My Cats Only Challenge, SUYP is on the last week for this month, so if you are an avid kitty lover then why not pop over and play. 
There are Freebie IKEsART images on both these Blogs. :-)

See you all soon xxxx

A BIT ON THE DARK SIDE

Hello Tuesday Peeps,
Well - it's raining today but at least a little warmer. After going down the mountain and back this morning to house/cat sit, my poor Moishe has the definite pong of 'Wet Dog' as he lays next to me in his doggy bed ! LoL Still - it's a good job that I have hardly any sense of smell  :-D hahaha

Anyways - onto my first project for today. I went a little over to the dark/sci fi side this morning and decided to use one of my own images on a Tag. This image is ' ROBOT #2 ' and you can find her HERE. I coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers.



I made the tag with card covered in silver plumbers' tape and then put it through the Big Shot using Die'sire Embossalicious folder - ' Gun Metal '.
I added a strip of Binary code sprinkled with 'blood' and made a couple of computer circuit board mini tags attached with bakers' twine to resemble computer wire :-) (I hope it does anyway)

I'm in a crafty mood today but haven't decided what to do next so I am going to browse the Challenge lists and I may well be back later :-)
Bye for now xxxx

LETTER FROM A DOG

Hello Peeps,
I snagged a great Freebie recently from PATTIE G and got around to colouring him up today. I found a really great  " Letter From A Dog "  ( on this site HERE if you want to read all of it ) and used an extract for my journal page.



I see such a lot of things going on here which show that some people don't actually think  dogs/animals are actual living creatures at all - and it's a shame. I try and do my little bit but it  all still makes me very sad. :-(



Well - I must dash off and finish the kitty creation for my Cat's Challenge  which is due up tomorrow morning  :-D
See you later xxxx

HAVE YOU GOT ANY SNOW ?

I'm here again - just dashing in - to show this card I made with a lovely Freebie from KNITTY KITTY that is called " Dachshund Through The Snow "...... LUV it :-D
Have you got any snow where you live ???



I have used teeny polka dot card - which is reversible and I tried a new technique with an embossing folder by inking on the inside of the folder before putting it in the machine. 
I watched this done by Susan Renshaw on a video HERE. I'm not sure if I put enough ink on but hey-ho. I don't have a snowflake embossing folder so I used 'Gem Flourish' from Craft Concepts as it looked a bit like snow swirling in the wind.


I used Whispers Archival Inks - Whisper Blue, Azure Seas and KindyGlitz. The snowflake is from my bits box as is the gem. The Dachshund was coloured using Spectrum Noir Markers.

SOME CARD COMMISSIONS

Good morning and happy Friday,
I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend and maybe getting a spot of crafting done ? :-D

I've come in today to show a couple of card commissions I did. Decided to go the pretty floral way for a change (well - for me anyways hahaha).. and used handmade flowers and some from SAMFLORA.

This first one was for a lady's 60th. I used dies and punches for the flowers and leaves.


This one was for a young lady in her late teens who is really keen on dancing.
The flowers are by SAMFLORA, and the image is " Tiny Dancer " from TIDDLYINKS. I coloured her with Promarkers.



Thank you for popping in xxx

SOME MORE NBUS

Good afternoon Everybody,
Having a pretty busy day today with a coffee morning this morning and then a rush card order this afternoon. Whilst I was here I whipped up a cute Kitty ATC with a new Freebie paper I got from Pat Martin of PATACAKES PAGES. This little gem is called " SLEEPING KITTY ".
I printed the page down to ATC size and trimmed off a bit of the bottom. Then I printed just two of the kitties a bit bigger and decoupaged them with silicone.
Soooo cute this little kitty :-D




Well - it's that time again Folks - cat feeding, dog feeding then off down the mountain to house/cat sit for my friends :-)  No rest for the wicked eh ?!  LoL

Thanks for popping in xxxx

LET's BREAK OUT THE STAMPS

Helloooo Peeps,
I thought I would go through my stamp boxes today and have a little play, and I realized how many stamps I actually have and how little I use them :-(
So today, I have used 2 sets of NBUS to make this leetle offering :-)  It's probably the closest thing you are gonna' get to Valentines from me !! Bleh humbug !!



For my base, I have used snippets of red and white card left over from Krimbo :-) I stamped the white card multiple times using stamps from my SARNTANGLES limited edition rubber stamp set. These were made by my mate SARN at Stamping For Pleasure.  I have used one of them before but most of the set is NBUS.  I used the Tangle and the LOVE stamp. I edged the card with some Whispers red ink.
On top of that I layered a piece of plain Vellum with a punched edge and attached it with a heart brad.
The Baby Teddy and his Mum are stamped using the " BEAR HUGS " set from Stampin Up.
   

Thanks for popping in. I must go now as it's Kitty Feeding Time :-)
Byeeeee  xx

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCRIBBLES

Good morning Peeps,
I have popped in to say a Happy 4th Birthday to SCRIBBLES DESIGNS.


They are having a Blog Hop where you could win prizes for commenting and also giving away a piece of Freebie Cake.
I have used the Cake and  " Dog Wash " on my card and also a backing paper from DECOSSE's DYNAMITE DOODLES.
I coloured the dog with Promarkers and used some duck tape to paper piece his tin bath and added some Stickles on his bath bubbles.
With the cake, I superimposed some fruit cake on the image and added another candle to celebrate 4 years.




  

Right - I have to whizz off now as I have some other creations on the go and I gotta do it when my Mojo is flowing :-D xxx

GETTING MY MOJO GOING

Hello Peeps,
Well, here we are half way through January and I must admit I haven't been doing much. !! I did a couple of new images for a request but I wanted to get back into some crafting. I have sooooo much stuff that I never even get out of it's packets, so I must give myself a butt kick and start doing things :-)
Today I have eased myself into things gently by making an ATC. I find these are the perfect size to restart my Mojo. I have used the latest Freebie from KNITTY KITTY and he's called a  " FOXICORN "....  isn't that just adorable ? !!
I coloured his horn with gold and silver pens but it doesn't show up that well :-(
