Captain Jack!

Ahoy their mateys......lol
well have enjoyed colouring this image as i so like johnny depp! so does my aunt luckily as this card is for her to drool over.
I used my new flexmarkers along with my new promarkers to colour in the octopede capt jack digi and they really are nice to use and blend well.Think i shall be getting some more and thanks to a lovely lady over on docrafts who posted that they were reduced have ordered another cd case to hold them, case is on sale here, not sure how long its half price for though. i have used old paper and walnut stain distress inks on the card,image and map which i made by stamping using En francis stampin up stamp and then going over with old paper and tearing which is very theraputic.....lol and then edging with walnut stain.. Added a tim holtz ticket though i am sure how much my aunt wishes Johnny wont appear! and a charm i brought ages ago.
Oh and by the way what do you think of my music on my blog which i added in a mad moment,anyway off to see what else i can colour,have a great day,x

My wonky Advent Calender

Hi all,well had yet another fab time at the Bristol craft meet,well worth the two and a half hr drive! Anyway i wasnt going to make the project this time and had my bags packed with other items but i am always easily swayed and though its quite repetative i enjoyed making this.
Now dont look too close as its a bit wonky....lol.its 4 sided and has 24 drawers and thank heaven for peeloff numbers is all i can say!
Am going to use it for my beloved dog Sam at christmas to hold some treats as he is not allowed chocolate.
Fell in love with the bauble stamps and bauble punch which i had nabbed from Sue so need to go and buy those now. used distress ink for the bauble stamps and white ribbon on the drawers and lots of white card and papermania textured card. A tip for next time if i make another one that is!! is to really crease the card well to get a neater finish. Anyway am sure my Sam will be most happy to get whats in the drawers at christmas.

Handbag card made at Bristol meet

Hi all,well having a catch up day on projects that i have started but not finished.....lol. Completed a scrapbook and this handbag card which was our project for last months craft meet and as i am going again tomorrow thought i had better do it and add to my blog before i go!
Enjoyed making this using 12 x 12 card and my clare curd papers,added flowers,chipboard letter,brads,pearls and ribbon from stash. Sorry dont have a link for this one but am sure if you go and message sue over at her blog she can help you out.
This is the inside of mine and its going to be used as a retirement card and i have cut blanks of card for people to sign and then be glued inside but wont add til all signed just in case someone makes a mistake....lol
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and i like to repay the favour so see you soon,x

Chest of drawers and a hello :)

Hi all,well just in case you thought i had vanished i am back....lol. Have gone back to work after the summer holidays and its always a shock to the system to be honest so a distinct lack of crafting! and a scare today with my lappy and the blue screen of death but phew uninstalled some corrupt drivers and seem to be ok.
Anyway Tanmo and Angiebabe two lovely ladies i have met through Docrafts came around for some crafting play time and this is what we made

a cute little mini chest of drawers. I found the instructions online and will add the link when i can find it,its somewhere in my very long favourites file! link for drawers is here
Really easy to make using the large nesties and i used the ones that fit in my big shot and the bottom two drawers open and the top one is attached to the lid and lifts so very cute.Going to use this to hold some jewellry as a pressie.
We also made some adorable advent houses but i havent take a photo so will do that for next time as i am slowly going through my not completed projects.....lol
Right off to get ready to watch the celebrity big brother final,x
