Morning everyone!

Today the Saturated Canaries are starting our next image showcase challenge over on our Saturated Canary Facebook page.

And its a super duper one this time! we just want to see where your creativity takes you so its...
Anything Goes.

You can make any creation you like be it card, scrap page, an altered something, smash book/journal page etc...just let your creativity go!

The prize, as always, will be 2 digital images of your choice from the shop and the rules are super simple too..

* you can enter ONLY ONCE
( this makes it fair for everyone )

* you can enter with any FINISHED creation but...IT MUST BE HANDCRAFTED
(digital colouring of Krista's images is not permitted in accordance to TOU's)

I could not resist Cuppie Arrows, she is too cute!! Scott is going to get like a million valentines cards this year because I just can't stop feeling all loved up!! lol!!

She really is such a joy to colour though and I was in funky hair mood so she got the blue hair I totally dream of. One day I am going to get it dyed this colour blue, I just need to find the colour first!!

Sooo, in keeping with my card making disasters of the week.. I had a dark chocklit mishap whilst colouring her in!!....



..but all was not lost!! because I had that totally cute target that comes with her! wohooooo!!! 

So, yet again from Lou style bodges came a Lou style card!! go me!!! I sometimes wonder if I will ever get through one week without doing something totally daft and Lou-ish...but then hey I wouldn't be me if I wasn't this dimb right?!!!!!

Huge hugs for you all! I'll be back in a few mins with my fabby friday make for Tiddly Inks!!

Bronte and Louis...

Papers- Bronte paper past freebie from Mo's digital pencil.
Yellow spotty paper...mmmm...can't remember!! lets call it...
 'left in stash pile and looked yummy'?!!!

Hi everyone!!
well it was a gorgeously snowy kinda day here today. I took some time to stare out of the window at the flakes tumbling down and have some crafting fun!!

Now, you will laugh at this one!!...I coloured my super cute little Louis...but the cardstock I chose sucked...I mean like really sucked!! I will not be using it again! lol! but all was not lost because I had a new bottle of crackle glaze to play with and decided this little guy would be perfect for it!!

To give you and idea of how much he needed rescuing..this is how he loooked before crackle glaze fun!.....poor lil guy looks like he has a huge case of chicken pox a la pants no blendy paper!!!
I pushed on though and finished his hair...( couldn't resist colouring them up like my little Mo and Dasher) and then it was time for 2 good coats of crackle glaze. I let it dry and then gave the little guy a good roll in my hands to bring out the cracks some more and then gave it a rub with some walnut stain distress ink.

I am so pleased I didn't trash it because it came out so cute! then I just had to print out the Bronte papers Maurie gave as a freebie ages ago, I chose the blue green one to go with the blues and greens in my colouring, layering it up with a little bit of spotty paper I found in my crafty stash pile on my desk.

I have finished my Twilight marathon and moved onto Blade now!! 2nd one tonight so have tomorrow night to watch the last one and....super exciting.....I get 4 of my new windows in tomorrow!!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!!! we saved hard and can only afford 4 this time and then a few more in a couple of months!! wohooo!! our old ones are terrible!! the came with the new build it was and they suck! they let air in even when they are fully shut!! and Mo is super sensitive to wind and noise and that scares him so I can't wait for him to have a lovely well fitted window in.

Right, time for me to pootle off!! you must all be asleep from my waffling by now!!!

Stamp- Have Heart Wryn clear stamp set from Tiddly Inks.
papers- Huge Funky Love from Funky Hand.
Sentiment- I heart you- Silhouette store.
Cardbase- Lori Whitlock pop out heart base- Silhouette store.

Morning all!!!

well its a hideously blowy and rainey day here...yuck!! but all is good because I have warmed myself up with a quick wryn make this morning!! oooh I love this stamp ( ...family be warned...everything you receive from me will probably have this cutie stamped on it!!)

But seriously, she is just too cute, I might even be brave enough to say she is my fav wryn from the new releases...but that's only until I colour up the next one!! romfl!!!! lol!

I love cards with a bit of poparoo so I used one of the cardbase I have bought from the silhouette store and some delicious funky hand papers I had left on my desk! I love how it turned out! I saw the challenge over on papertake weekly of Fancy folds and just had to give it a whirl!! I haven't entered a challenge in so long so decided to go for it!!

Right, I need to scoot! I am having mummy and Grandad time today! we are going for breakfast....which is good because I only let myself have a yoghurt at 5:30am this morning in preparation and to say my tummy is grumbling would be a complete understatement...even the dogs ran away when I looked at them for fear I may eat them!!!! romfl!!

Have a fab day everyone, thank you for popping in

Mo's DP2 challenge....Anything Goes/ optional Warm ....

Image- Ragged Maggie.
Hi everyone.

I am so very sorry I am a day late posting my DT challenge make for the DP2 challenge blog.

We very sadly lost Scott's Grandad very unexpectedly on wednesday and it left us all feeling very sad and not quite with it at all :( He was such a wonderful man, so quiet and gentle and he will be so very missed. We are so sad to of lost him, yet so happy he had such a long and lovely life and I will be forever grateful to him because without him, I would not have my beautiful family.

So onto my make. Our challenge this time is ...

 "Anything Goes/optional Warm"

so, Just choose at least one of Mo's images and create your own masterpiece (card, 3-D project, etc.) using this fortnight's "Anything Goes/optional Warm" theme. Up for grabs is a $5.00 voucher for Mo's online store!! 

I just had to use Ragged Maggie. She is just so sweet, keeping her little kitten all snuggled up with in her shawl. 

I just added a few little rolled flowers and pearls to embellie this one up, she really doesn't need much else bless her.

Right, got to go! there is a small boy wanting to have a draughts rally! the winner plays daddy!!

Huge hugs Lou xx

I am just drawn to these cuties in their little pjs'!! theres girlie ones too so I might neeeeeeed to get those too!! lol!!

That gorgeous little moon os from the silhouette store, I found it while I was wombling around in there yesterday and thought it would just go so well with this little guy!

Right, time to pootle off! I have some card bases to get ready for adding some bits to later today and I have a ' get me out of the house I've got cabin fever' rescue mission for my mummy! she has been a but stuck in since her surgery with the bad weather ( slipping for her could ruin everything her surgeon is trying to do for her back) so I am going to take her to the garden centre for a womble and cup of tea.

Huge hugs for you all,

its time for another fun challenge here on the Tiddly inks challenge blog. This time we are going all out for the colder weather so the next challenge is...

Snow, glitter, winter

I needed to combine my Tiddly make with.... the challenge set for us by our gorgeous Lou over on the Passion for Promarkers challenge blog. She chose...

New Beginnings.

So I went new home!I have had a couple of friends move recently so this one will be pootling off to one of the soon! 

Now do you know what the best part of this make was?... I left my little make with stickles 'frost' drying on the table and Dasher..little ratbag...decided that licking off all the 'frsot' seemed like an excellent idea...so by the time I came down the stairs there was a rather guilty looking little prince on the table, with a little house on his tongue looking at me.....ot oh!!!

Luckily I was able to rescue it and pop some more stickles on it!!!! so funny!! 

Right, little man is requesting a hot chocolate so I am off to push the button on my tassimo machine!!

Huge hugs for you all
