SOME MORE WORK.... CUTESY ALERT !!!

Hello Peeps,
Here we are at the start of another week and nearly at the end of September !! Where does the time go ????
I have been beavering away recently making another load of card commissions and here is the first one I would like to show you.

This is another bow card - which have become really popular here on my little Greek island since I made the first one a couple of months ago !!!
Many thanks go to  SANDRA STRIJLAND   for designing the awesome PDF template for this fabulous design. I just can't stop making them. It takes me about 4 hours if I do all the stitch work and stuff, and make a box but I do love this design.



Now, those of you who know me........ don't faint with shock that I actually own a Tilda stamp !!!!! YES - it's true :-D  I have a couple of them hiding away in a dark corner of the 'cutesy' dungeon hahahaha :-D
This card is for a 1st birthday and the proud parents call her their 'Little Princess' so I thought this card would be deserving of a Princess Tilda. I coloured her with Promarkers. I used papers from my scrapbooking box and cut out some butterflies to which I then added glitter. I stitched all the DPs onto the base cards using my sewing machine. I must admit that this time she wasn't very happy about it, but then I have made about 10 of these puppies during August and Sept, so she's worked hard. !!! 
The little no.1 balloon is actually pink miri card but that obviously doesn't photograph well due to the reflective surface, but I can assure you it is a vibrant fuchsia pink :-D

I will show you the others I did over this week when I get my photographs organised :-)

Thanks for popping in.

I'M BACK AGAIN !!

Good morning Peeps and I hope you are all well. I am back again after having some surprise visitors for a couple of days and I have really had such a wonderful time. People I haven't seen for about 28 years !!!!! :-D
So - feeling bright and chipper this morning, I was browsing the Challenges and was inspired to create....... so I made this.........





It's one of those 'Slider', 'Roller', 'Spinner' thingies.... whatever you call it - I can't remember LoL

The image is from The East Wind as I was inspired to join their latest Challenge.
When I saw the Blog title I got a certain song in my head -  which will probably be with me all day - but I sung out loud to it whilst creating this card Hahahaha :-D
I think he's listed as a Rat, but hey - it's my card right ?!! LoL
He does actually roll along but you obviously can't photograph the movement :-) I coloured him with Spectrum Noir pens and Derwent pencils.
I used lots of snippets from my cuttings box to make the card and a couple os little Greek coins.

Thanks for popping in. I will be back again at the weekend to publish some of my latest card commission creations but I have to get the images off my camera first. ! This new computer system that I have doesn't do it the way I'm used to so it takes me a bit of fiddling about !!!

HELLO SUNDAY PEEPS :-)

Good morning Everyone,
I have been away from my Blog because I had my lovely Daughter and her family here for a holiday, so spent lots of time in the pool and messing around with my Grandsons :-D Both she and my SiL had some chillaxing time and everyone got a super tan :-D

I then had a big card order to do, which I will post pikkies of a bit later.

This morning I was playing with the latest FB freebie image from Angie Addison.... a cute chubby little plane and I put it together with a freebie FLAMINGO I got from Little Scraps of Heaven. I used the flamingo twice, flipped one and cut off and re-positioned his head to make him look up :-)



I coloured all the planes using various flags of the world. The background is an image of flamingos on a lake in Africa, where they flock in their trillions at certain times of the year !!!   
I also used a freebie vintage flamingo image. The LSoH flamingos were pre-coloured and they also came with a cutting file and some super background papers. You can find them HERE.

If you want to snag Angie's plane then pop over to her FaceBook Page HERE and join in :-)

Well - I hope you had a giggle and now I am off to finish my card order.

See you later and thanks for dropping in :-) xxx
