Hanglar Happy Christmas

I had a bit of a colouring in session yesterday - I printed off and stamped loads of Christmas images and then had a play with my promarker pens.

I just chose a few colour combos, then hoped I had some matching papers somewhere!

These Hanglar girls were the first to be finished off, still have lots more to do.

My Grandad will be 100 years old!

I can't believe my Grandad will be 100 years old soon. He is an amazing man who still lives on his own and loves growing his own fruit and vegetables. He even has a girlfriend from the nearby old folks home! On the other side of the family, my grandmother just celebrated her 95th birthday so I hope I have inherited their genes.

Charity Cards off to a good home

Like many of you, I make far too many cards for my own use so I advertised them on my local Freecycle site to see if any charity or community group would like them to help with fund-raising. So now the local Womans Refuge, Childrens kids club and MacMillian Nurses will be getting 25 each to help them.

Jade & Teal!

I really got into using the Jade/Teal colour scheme - particularly with brown or rusty reds. This one uses a piece of recycled jade coloured card which was originally a folder from work. I run this through the Cuttlebug and layered it with Kaiser craft Gypsy sisters die cuts and a marianne designs flower

Teal Blog Candy for Ovarian Cancer

I have only just stumbled upon this, but Sue has a fab pile of candy if you can help her with her fund raising for Ovarian cancer - she is asking for cards made with a teal colour scheme for a craft event next week - so you must post them off to her quickly!

These are the ones I am going to send her and I hope she raises loads of dosh for such a good cause!

A Couple of Christmas Nitwits

I've decided that this year I'm going to use a pale blue and purple colour scheme for most of my Christmas cards - mainly because of these fab NitWit papers that are free with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine. I also have downloaded a NitWit Great Expectations kit which is ideal for any New Baby cards. I'm also tempted by their Gone Fishing and Halloween Hooligan collections as well!

Hanglar/Spring Fling Session!

Often I don't have clue how my cards will turn out - I just grab an image or paper and have a play.

But today I was organised and decided to use these lush Spring Fling papers by the Wild Rose Studio that I got from Debbis candy giveaway and team them up with 3 cute Hangler girls. Coloured with my new promarker pens of course.

I think the sitting girl card is a bit too 'busy' but hopefully someone will like her.

Thank You Debbi - Wiccababe

The Blog Candy I won from Debbi arrived today in 2 parcels! There were Sugar Nellie stamps stamps, yummy papers, stickers, gorgeous charms and of course, 20 different promarker pens!

All thought of housework was banished and I dived in to use them and the first card I had to make was to thank Debbi herself. These goodies will keep me busy for ages.

Lili of the Valley Cat

I just love these cute little Lili of the Valley die cut cats, this is the last of them so I think a shopping trip to get some more is called for!

My Grandmother is 95!

My Grandmother, or Special Nannie as we call her, will be 95 years old this week. She is an amazing lady who still lives on her own. Apart from a bit of deafness and forgetfulness she is in really good health and enjoys a glass of Baileys every now and then!
Happy Birthday Special Nannie!

Hanglar Cyclist

The image is a cute hanglar boy on his bike and I've used autumn colours and a little felt bunny rabbit as embellishment.

No time for crafting this week as it is my Nieces Wedding tomorrow - this wedding is a full traditional wedding in a small country church and has been planned over the last two and a half years! Congratulations and best wishes for the future Kerry & Glenn.

Craft Stamper ATC Swap

I received these 2 great atcs as part of the 'Wings and Things' atc swap that was arranged by Craft Stamper Magazine.

The blue one features spring elusive images and is by Karen Cooke and Butterfly flutter has a crackle glaze on the tags and was made by Michelle Baugh - aren't they great!
