ICS No 85

Hi there, Dianna over at ICS has given us another lovely sketch, this is certainly one to put into my book to use again, we are also being sponsored by Fairy Knoll for 3 free images, thank you so much.
I've used a Sugar Nellie stamp, coloured with copics and a bit of glitter, the papers were actually a freebie from a magazine, ribbon from Debbie Moore, and thats it, quite a simple card really.
Looking forward to see what you do with Dianna's sketch, the other super talented DT have done an awesome job well worth a visit to there wonderfull blogs and take a peek.

In a Pear Tree

Hi there what a miserable day, we are suposed to be concreting the base for Hubbies new aviary today, got three bays done yesterday and thought we would leave the last one untill today as the old muscles were shouting, then today its not stoped raining, looks like weve got next weekends jobs sorted. Hope the weathers a bit better where you are. I think I'm going to have a break from Christmas cards next week. I've got 20 for the shop made and bagged for them to be getting on with.
Love this digi, I've coloured it with copics then 3D laquered the pears and whilst still wet a light dusting of glamour dust, it looks really effective in real life, Papers are papermania I'm really loving this set very traditional and gorgeous colours. Ribbon's whats left from some wedding invites and charm from stash, 3 little pearls in corner from The Hobby House and thats it a really quick and simple card.
Might get to play this after if it keeps raining although I think it wil take a couple of hours to tidy my bench up, its 3 meters long yet I always end up with a 6" square, why is that?

Hiya, this gorgeous set of stamps was given to me by my sister, I love them, I coloured with copics, some are glittered and some 3D laquered, mounted on gold mirri board and I found this paper in my oddments pack so not sure what make it is. I've used more mirri board this last fortnight than I have all year, not that keen on the stuff but its OK for Christmas cards.

Hiya, this lovey card is for a customer, they've only just got married so I thought this image would be ideal, think its from The Greeting Farm, one of these days I'll remember to add the supplier when i save my image or put it in a named folder, instead i chuck everything in 1 folder named downloads, guess I ought to do some housework on my computer as well as house!!

Coloured with copics and a bit of red glitter on the holly berries, nesties, Papermania paper , flowers from wild orchid, ribbon from stock.

ICS No 82

Hi, this great sketch by Dawn at ICS is fantastic for using up all those scraps that you keep saving, just in case, I'm afraid its not made much of a dent in my bit box, but you get a strange satisfaction from taking out rather than putting in. Try it, you'll be amazed.

We are being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs this week,the winner gets to choose 4 free digi's and they generously gave us DT's 2 images to work from, I had to choose my namesake " Debbie in Denim" I must admit I do live and die in my jeans.

Papers are from my scrapbox, image coloured with copics, lilac and white card from my stash.

Lady in pink

Hi there, well I've had a really good week off work, had a few days away, then got loads of housework (sorry for swearing) done. Havn't managed much crafting though. Here's a little lady I coloured while I was away, the photo is pants, she is far more pink IRL and the black is embossed with swirly dots, but you can't see them, so you'll just have to take my word for it.
I'm entering this into:
ABC Charms
Spoonfull of Sugar Sketch
Aly's Pink
Charisma cardz Song (The Pink Ladies from Grease).
The image is from Kenny K black and pink card from stash, patterned paper from DCWV, pink ribbon of a box of chocky's, charm of an old bracelet.
I think i should be saving this card for a recycleing challenge. lol.
Well its back to work tomorrow, no more lie ins,
Hope you all have had a great weekend , hope to be back tomorrow.
