New Year....

Morning crafty peeps... hope you've all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year :-) The last 12 months have been pretty busy with work but it paid off and i got a promotion!!... This year, now things are settling,  i plan to get back to crafting... which leads me to a few questions...

I finally changed back to my maiden name and as I haven't maintained my blog so much i'm wondering whether to start a new one and move to word press?... Any thoughts on this would be appreciated i.e ease of use etc...

I'm also looking for new custom stamps and watermarks, but for today i shall be mostly crafting :-)

I'll leave you with a pic of the memory/gratitude jar i cobbled together yesterday, whilst i dig out my pens to see if i can still colour!!

One for the Boys

Evening all...hope we've all had a fantastic weekend??'s been a wet one here so i managed to fit in a little crafty time :-)'s my Nephews birthday next week so i coloured up this adorable Tiddly Inks digi...

He's called "Little So and So" and I've teamed him up with bazzill basics Dino-mite papers :-)

I've kept it simple with a little doodling and a couple of flat back gems.

I've coloured him up with the following copics

Skin - E33, E11, E21, E51, R20
Green - G07, YG17, YG23
Blue - B05, B04, B02

I then added a little more depth with my polychromo pencils.

I'd like to add him to the current Tiddly Inks challenge - One For The Boys

Moonbeam Meadows - Hugs and Kisses

Morning all...hope you're all having a fantastic weekend :-)...I've been awake since silly 'o clock so finished off this super sweet card...

The stamp is  from Crafters Companion Moonbeam Meadow range and was a freebie with a craft magazine a while ago...if you didn't manage to snag one you can purchase the  Moonbeam Meadow CD's from their website.

I stamped the image with memento rich cocoa onto some Daler Rowney Aquafine smooth Hot Pressed paper in and played around with my Polychromo pencils for a change..i'm still learning but love trying something new :-) The papers are Bazill Basics - Vintage Lace and are mounted on a docraft Kraft card blank. I've also used my MFT dienamic dies - Blueprints set 12 and a spellbinders oval die :-)

The pencils i used are as follows.... Dark Sepia, Brown Ochre, Medium Flesh, Warm Grey 3 and 2, Ivory, Light Phthalo Blue, Helio Blue-Reddish, Alizavin Crimson, May Green, Permanent Green Olive and Dark Cadium Orange... maybe next time i'll write down the numbes lol!!

I used Sansador and stubs to blend :-)

Any more questions feel free to ask :-)

I would also like to enter the following challenges

Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
