A tag with Scrappers Delights and TTPHC #61

This week over at TTPHC

Through The Purple  Haze Challenges

We had to use a tag and we were sponsored by the lovely Scrappers Delights!

Scrappers Delights

I am using Genie 1 this week for our tag challenge she is so versatile and i had to cut some of the elements out to make her large or should i say small enough to fit onto a tag.

So i used some lovely papers from my scrap box and then used some peach coloured lace.  Added a little  bit of ribbon to hang the tag with and a handmade butterfly and bling embellishment ( really easy to make) and she was done!  As easy as it should have been it was harder colouring to a smaller scale than i had first realized

Any how there you have my first tage ever decorated with the same theme front and back!

Charlie is 8 today!!

Aww my last baby in the nest is 8 today!

Well i say baby but he isn't so little anymore....and well as will all of us mums they will always be our babies no matter what age they are...

Being a complete Ben 10 addict i thought i would have trouble finding an image but i managed to find one and her it is......don't worry this was for personal use only for my sone and will not be used in any way,shape or form again.

So here is the birthday boy camping this year...

Yes! in the paddling pool and as with most boys posing and messing around lol..mind you it was one of the hottest summers since i was pregnant with him and he spent a LOT of time in water during this summer.

And here is his birthday card...although i had trouble with his hair as i had to try and make it like THE REAL BEN 10 i didn't do too bad a job of it...well i don't think so any way..

I used some perfect pearls and cosmic shimmer on the bubbles.....and i think he will love it although for some reason i am rather nervous?

So to my little miracle ( and yes he was a miracle as i supposedly couldn't have any more children due to previous complications) Happy happy birthday you loads...

How much? the moon and back


Have a wonderful birthday Charlie!

The stamping Chef and a few faux stitches at TTPHC this week

Well its been a while since my last post due to commitments springing out of the wood work which has sadly taken me away from my crafting......but hopefully next week everything will be back to normal and my post wont be so short and sweet.

This week The Stamping Chef is sponsoring us over at TTPHC.

The theme is real or faux stitches and this is what i came up with this week.

This lovely digi is called the artist and she was rather challenging to colour with that curly hair!

I made the wooden scrabble tiles into celebrate  sentiment.  Faux stitching around the outside of the green card that makes up the base and on the fabric.

Lacy Sunshine and Anything goes

Hi there...Well this week over at TTPHC we have an anything goes challenge for nice and easy and just right to ease you all in after the frantic school holidays!  It so good to have the children back to school or nearly...mind you i have to say i did enjoy spending a lot of time with my son and he has been fabulous...not once did i hear i'm bored what can i do? to my ears...

This week we had the lovely Lacy Sunshine sponsoring us....and the whole DT had a new image each!

This lovely little girl sat in her basket is Kenli forget me nots flower pot pretty

I had so much fun colouring this little lovely!  I just had to make her into a beautiful birthday card but the peg sentiment can be removed and reused to change it to something pretty versatile.  

I used some lovely burgundy coloured papers with a mid range blue to complement the image colours and i matted and layered will see i added two different paper doilies a little bit of pearl bling and an accordion flower....i love these...

Hope you like my DT make and if you ever want colour combos just holler!

#55 Photo Inspiration - Nikki Burnett take two!

Hi there!

This week at TTPHC we have a photo inspiration for you!  I was so loving the images that i made two cards for you!

Here it is but don't be alarmed it isn't as hard as you may think! In fact we found it easy lol

Here she is a beautiful mermaid by Nikki Burnette - Arden ....she was lovely to colour and was easy to match up with the inspiration picture...

I loved the blues and greens i chose to colour her in...and for the first time ever i did an unconventional hair colour! yes it green...and it turned out better than i thought it would...

I had a bit of a play with this card i used texture paste and stencil for the background and when dry i used my gilding waxes in about six different colours and blended then burnished them til i was happy with the looks great on the card and the picture doesn't do it any justice at all!

Just to finish her off i gave her a nice simple sentiment and a little bit of black half pearl bling and then she was done...thanks for dropping in and cant wait to see what you come up with!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

#55 Nikki Burnette and a picture inspiration

Hi there!

This week at TTPHC we have a photo inspiration for you!

Here it is but don't be alarmed it isn't as hard as you may think! In fact we found it easy lol

Here she is a beautiful mermaid by  Nikki Burnette - Symphoni....she was lovely to colour and was easy to match up with the inspiration picture...

i have to admit i used a lot of pearls on this one i made them to look like bubbles in some places and i loved the craft time sea shell buttons i added...locked away in my stash but no longer as i used the whole packet nearly! 
I really loved colouring her in especially with all that skin on show...usuall skin is just a little bit here and there but with a mermaid there is a lot of skin so hopefully she looks as svelte as i wanted her too.

Well hope you all enjoy the challenge and look forward to seeing your entries this week!

i would like to enter this make into the following challenges!

Rick St Dennis at TTPHC

Its another one of those days where blogger decided to NOT post my scheduled blog post and i now have dived in to find out what the hey?

Blogger being blogger i suppose!

This week over at 

Wea re lucky to be sponsored by the awesome Rick St Dennis!  He has the most wonderful images with so much detail that the sky is the limit!

I was lucky enough to get to make the beautiful Autumn Goddess into a card for a special friend

I used papers from my paper stash and decided to keep to muted earthy tones.....i love the orange jewels, ribbon and flower that i added to give the card a bit more 3D quality.
I really enjoyed colouring her and for a change used a variety of orange colours from my Copic collection....a colour that i usually steer clear of as i am always unsure of orange and yellow but i think it turned out quite well to be honest

A slightly closer look at the dig that i coloured.
