Hello Everyone...

I had a wonderful day off today...spent too much money when I went out for glue!.. but managed to get plenty of crafting time and quite a few projects done too..

This one I finished a few days ago and it is my favourite Bear of all time from the now closed Stampfairy Store...This is Barry...

My little fuzzy friend with that adorable expression..

He is feeding his birds in the snow[ and I forgot to snow up the trees..]

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils like the old days with Barry..fluffy snow trim on his hat and sparkly on the birdhouse..

Aww..I was just showing off an artsy shot cause it didn't blurr...

Aww..she is just too happy balancing her slice of cake on the tip of her trunk...

All coloured up with markers and pencils..

Then in came ..WINK OF STELLA...don't squeeze it...what ever you do don't squeeze it.

Too late for me..I squeezed that little pen on my cupcakes and out came this sparkle liquid that went worst cupcake is on the bottom.

And the side view..

So there we go..I'm still playing in my room and working hard but will have lots to share soon and photos of the new craft room which I have adjusted to very quickly this time round.

Hello Everyone..

Mid month and time for some inspiration using one of  IMAGINE THAT DIGISTAMP 's fabulous images and this time I am using the featured set called "REINDEER CAROLS "

They are too cute and all coloured up with markers and a few pencils for shading...

Glossy accent noses and on the lamp...pine cones and bells and gingham ribbon..

Papers from my stash  and too lumpy to post...but I'm sure with a few dollars inside one of the Grankids will love it..

You can find this set HERE

Thanks so much for stopping by..see you again soon..

Hello Everyone..

I'm late with this post as I forgot to schedule it and I have smacked my hand and promised not to do it again..

This is my inspiration post for Delightful Thursday with "DIGITAL DELIGHTS "

This cute wee fellow is called "Waiting For Santa "..

My background is all dies with white cardstock then added the coloured image after fussy cutting..
I made the sign post and added white gel pen to the tree and a few white highlights on the string of lights across the kennel..

I love trees and hills and snow and been making lots of backgrounds lately to use up with images..

Now I just have to learn how to take the yellow out of my photos and not turning them blue..

Thanks so much for stopping by and all the wonderful comments you leave..



Happy Thursday crafters!! 

 Welcome to my stop on the "Fancy Fold Blog Hop" with  Imagine That Digistamps  ..   We hope you will be inspired to try some of these card folds, treat boxes or other 3D projects which is perfect timing with Christmas right around the corner!

I made a Tri Fold card using both images from the Lil Drummer Boy     digi set.

After cutting and finding pine cones [seed pods off a tree] I put together my tri fold card..

Drumer boy one....I used the pre coloured images and fussy cut these cute little boys out...

Drummer boy two...I added Marianne trees and fences...

and the third side has a little die cut church,fences,trees and a reindeer..

On top is pinecones, ribbon, snow, bells, berries,...I took the kitchen sink off as I didn't want to over do it.!!

Be sure to start at the Creative Playground!!   Here is a full list of the hop....

Thanks so much for hopping by, now off you go to Deannes..

Hello Everyone...

What a great day..the sun is shinning and it is new release day for SASAYAKI GLITTER

I  have three new digi's to share..

First up is #126..Dancing Reindeer..

Isn't he a charmer..this is just like Christmas in New Zealand and, sunny and reindeer's dancing all over the beaches..well, not really, it is usually me with antlers on and being totally silly.

I used my snow mound dies for the sand straight onto blue cardstock and added the sun and few clouds.

The reindeer and his friend the crab were fussy cut out and added onto the beach scene..

Next up we have #131 "Christmas Monster "..

Oh, he is fun and all coloured up with my markers...

The pack of pressies is a stamp from "Hot off the Press "..stamped onto kraft and highlighted with white gel pen...

I added twine for the candy canes to hang from...


And last of all my absolute favourite..#129  "My Snow Love "..

Awww... I just love snowmen and so does this little girl...

Coloured with my markers and left the card really plain and simple..the hearts were off cuts from another die and they came in really handy..

A few little details with the white gel pen like the dots on his buttons..there is fur on his trims but it didn't come out real good for some reason..not enough glue I expect and close to the dreaded red...

So there we go...thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you Thursday with a blog hop..
