Tilda's Blue Christmas !!!

  
Hi

Hurray !!!! I've made a Christmas Card !!!!  I still have loads to make, but at least it's a start.


I coloured Tilda with my Copic Markers and then carefully cut her out.   I embossed my card using my Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder and the blue snowflake paper is from my stash.  I finished the card with some ribbon, a brad and a metal snowflake charm.

Here's a close-up of Tilda.

Spesch Designer Stamps Release Day

   
Hi

Today I would like to show you some cards I made using the new Digis which are released today at Spesch Designer Stamps.

For my first card I've used a digi called Moon.  Isn't she sweet sitting there with her star?



I've coloured this image using Promarkers and I used some Gold Glamour Dust on her star.  The papers and embellishments are all from my stash. 

For my second card I used Forest Elf. 


Again, I used my Promarkers to colour the image.  I found this fabulous big white flower in my stash and layered it with some smaller flowers.  I used a yellow button with some thread tied through for the centre.  The papers are from my stash.

For my final card I used Draggy - he is my favourite from this release. 


I put my Promarkers to work on this one too.  The papers and ribbon are from my stash and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Set. 

So, hop on over to the Spesch Designer Stamp Blog to see what the other members of the Design Team have created with these new fabulous images.

WOYWW 18.08

  
Hi WOYWWers 

So, did you miss me last Wednesday?   I was on my Jolly Holidays.  We spent a fabulous week in London doing the "Tourist Thing"!!!  We saw all the sights Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Downing Street, Tower Bridge etc. We visited Kew Gardens, The Science Museum, The Royal Observatory at Greenwich and The British Museum. Of course we also had time for some serious shopping too - Harrods, Fortnum & Masons, Covent Garden and Hamleys to name a few. I even managed a trip to Blade Rubber Stamps - a great rubber stamp and craft shop in Holborn!!!

We had such a great time that we have already booked to go back at the end of the year!!!  We are going to take the kids to see Santa Claus in Harrods and show them the Christmas Lights, and of course do some shopping too!!!

There's not much happening on my desk today, but I thought I'd show you a few holiday photos. 



My boys on the Meridian Line at Greenwich Observatory


Luckily we don't have room for this giant Teddy Bear at home !!!


Like Father Like Son !!!


Sorry, there are no kitty pictures today - I hope to have some new ones for you next week!!!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to stop by Julia's Blog for a list of all the WOYWWers.

We've been for a family holiday in London.  We were there for a week and we had a fabulous time.  We saw all the sights Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Downing Street, Tower Bridge etc.  We visited Kew Gardens, The Science Museum, The Royal Observatory at Greenwich and The British Museum.  We also had time for some serious shopping too - Harrods, Fortnum & Masons, Covent Garden and Hamleys to name a few.   We were all really exhausted when we arrived home on Friday - It's a good job I don't have to be back at work until Thursday - my poor feet are still recovering from all the walking LOL!!!!

Anyway, the boys have been out in the garden all afternoon, so I made myself busy and created this card.


I've done a bit of masking using two Magnolia Stamps, Noble Tilda and New Year's Glass and coloured the image using my Copic Markers.


I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed & Something Blue

Recipe:

Stamps: Noble  Tilda and New Year's Glass

WOYWW 04.08.10

  
Hi

Wednesday again, and August already - where is the year going?

Here's my desk today:


I still need to get in the mood for Christmas card making.  I coloured two Christmas HM images last week and I've stamped this one to colour too.  I'm not really feeling festive enough to make Christmas cards, but I'm always in the mood for a bit of colouring!!!  I've decided to colour a few images ready to make into Christmas cards when I'm feeling more festive.

I'm also in the process of altering a jar which I'm going to fill with sweets to give to a work colleague.  I want to have this finished by the end of August, so there's no real rush.  Watch this space to see how it turns out.

Here are a few kitty pics for you.


I'm not sure what has got into Pablo, he is usually quite well behaved,  but of late he has been getting into a bit of mischief.  The other day, I turned my back for 2 seconds and he was in the photo tent - whatever next LOL!!!



Anyway, thanks for stopping by today.  Hop on over to Julia's Blog to find a list of all us brave WOYWWers!!!
