One of my poor little furbabies has got an ear infection, this is Fern feeling proper sorry for herself because she has to wear the collar and all the others are laughing at her. But at least she gets to sleep on my bed so Mickey doesn't lick them, been working on a card today but I can't post it in case some ones looking. She will have to wait untill Tuesday.

I chose this gorgeous tortoise that I coloured with copics then the shell I covered in 3D laquer but you cant see that on this bad photo, the papers are My Minds Eye, theres some pearl hearts and prima flowers with a HOTP brad, I also used an old Fiskars border punch.
This card also fits

Blue Bride

I decided to make another wedding card, having doubts about the colour. lol. this one is in the blue paper from the DCWV paper stack, the photo hasn't turned out very well at all, I have actually distressed some of the edges slightly and sanded the embossing but its not showing up very well, roll on the lighter nights. I'm entering this card for The Sugar Bowl challenge that gave us an awsome sketch to work with, the please include option is distressing.
Take care I,m off to tackle bathing the dogs.

I used the sketch from Stampin for the weekend which was brill, Cute daisy may asked for flowers and ribbon, A spoonfull of sugar wanted lots of layers, it's a sugar nellie stamp and DCWV luxury stack paper.
Have a good weekend.

ICS No 50

Hi, what a gorgeous sketch Dawn has given us this week, perfect for using up all those scrap pieces of paper we hoard, lol.
We are sponsored this week by the wonderfull Heather from Fresh Brewed Designs she has some awsome designs so please pop across and have a look, she has very generously sponsored the DT to a couple of images as she is sponsoring us next week aswell,.

With valentine being just around the corner I chose this gorgeous doggy image, are they not the most adorable pair. I coloured with the copics and I think the papers are from Papermania not quite sure as they were a gift.
Pop over to ICS and join in the fun.

ICS No49

Sorry I'm late with my post I've not been too well and my days have got mixed up.
We are being sponsored thisweek by Lulu one of our brilliant DT's she has supplied us with this gorgeous candy.

Hi all, its Tuesday again, how the weeks fly , Dawn has provided us with another gorgeous sketch
this is one I will use again and again, I love it and it was lovely to use. The usual rules apply, you can rotate , flip, twist anythig as long as its still recognisable.

This is another image from Mo's, perfect for an anniversary card.
I coloured it with copics, the papers came from a sale bin at the NEC so not quite sure what make they are.

I felt like doing something bright and cheerfull today and these papers by K&Co are so bright and summery, I've used another image from Mo's Digital Pencil , just loving these images.
I was entering this into two challenges, then I realised I used the sketch from last weeks create 4 fun . So its just the one Mo's Digital Challenge who wanted birthdays as the theme, so that was an easy one as I still need to make 2 to finish this months birthdays. Got a stinking cold so I might be missing for a few days, I just need to type up my DT card for tomorrows ics challenge.

Yet more snow, must say I'm getting a teny bit fed up with all this white stuff. But at least it makes my back garden look tidy, lol.

Hubby obviously isn't, this is his coffee break snowman, its only about 18" high , talk about the boy never growing

I made this card using one of my Lili of the valley stamps, I hear that are releasing some new ones at the end of the month. The are from a Patti Picalicious CD , nesties, copics, ribbon and a thanks brad. This qualifies for five challenges.

Hi there, I'm mega organised this year, trying to get all my birthday cards done before the day before this year, I have six in Jan and I'm on number four so I'm quite pleased with myself.

This one is for my friend Pam she has one of these dogs but hers is a girl so I've tarted it up a bit. Her granddaughters will love it.

I've used another of Mo's digital pencil designs that I got for Christmas and coloured it with my copics, I'm entering it for Create 4 Fun and used their gorgeous sketch on its side, also Pile it on that wanted us to use a digi stamp and Stamp Something that wanted us to use something new.
Sees ya later

Hiya, well I thought we had seen the back of the snow but we had a couple of inches this morning when I finally got out of bed and its 7.30 now and still here, when I walked my dogs it was like a skating rink. Still it was warm and cosy in my bats cave and I managed another card this time for a lovely young lady who will be 17 and itching to get driving, she already has a car a little white fiesta her parents brought of my sister, I'm going to get her a sticker I've seen on quite a few girly cars, its pink and says Powered by Fairy Dust at least it may stop her brother using it,
This card is for the Allsorts challenge they gave us a gorgeous sketch and asked us to use something new or old stash , well this is another digi stamp from Mo Mannings digital pencil that I got for Chritmas. It also goes in to Pile it on challenge that wanted digital stamps. Think I might pop back upstairs and finish a card I started earlier for a friend.
Take care

Happy New Year to all, hope your well and rested after the break, have you put your Christmas stamps away or are you stil playing?
I've had a break from them today and made the young girl round the corner a birthday card she'll be thirteen but acts like a 30 year old, don't they seem to grow up fast these days.
I've used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and Stamp something wanted us to use something new, I was treated to some digi stamps from Mo's so i used one of those.
Hope to be back tomorrow,
Hugs Debs
