Purfectly happy

Evening girls
It seems like an absolute age since I posted anything but I have a very good excuse.  I've been in hospital for two weeks, very ill with double pneumonia.  It seems  there is a horrible virus going around the middle east and the docs are certain I caught it whilst on holiday in Turkey which two weeks later attacked my lungs leaving me extremely ill.  Thankfully I'm over the worst now although I'm very, very tired and lethargic and cannot be bothered to do much which is not like me at all but onwards and upwards as they say:)

Anyway, thankfully I had this card done for the new release showcase posts over on All Dressed Up.  
Wendy has once again drawn up a storm with five fantastic new images for us to colour.

A Cuddle Makes It Better
Country Girl

Hop It

Hop to it

Summer Swing

Impressed?  I was: and found it difficult to choose which one I wanted to work with but in the end I coloured up Summer Swing.  She's one kewl kitty!

So, that's my little bit of inspiration for you. You'll find loads more over at our Facebook Group where we'd love to see your All Dressed Up creations and of course if you'd like to play along with our challenges then do visit the  All Dressed Up blog.

cocktails anyone

Hiya everyone
Sorry I've been awol for a while, things just seem to keep me from crafting at the moment.  To be honest mr mojo isn't really playing ball either.  Why oh why does the beggar desert us every now and then.
I do however have a card to show you this morning.

The challenge for this month on Art by MiRan  is to make a card using the colours of your flag.

errrrrrrrrm being from sunny Scotland there only are two colours.  Blue and white.  Doesn't leave you with too much scope does it?

This is Cocktail Anne and you'll find her over at Art by MiRan  Etsy store.
sentiment - TLC
flower die - Sentimental Florals
corner die - Doily Corners
brad and centre- Wild Orchid Crafts
ribbon from stash
coloured with Graph It and Spectrum Noir markers 

So, there's my little bit of inspiration for you girls.  We'd love it if you played along with the challenge and showed us your creations.  Hopefully your flag is a bit more colourful than mine :)

favourite image challenge

Evening Everyone
Wow two cards in one day.
It's that time of the month where we set a new challenge over on the All Dressed Up challenge blog.
Our theme for this one is simple.  Choose your all time favourite All Dressed Up image and create something with it.
This gorgeous lady is mine, I adore her delicacy and she is an absolute dream to colour.

papers - Lidl

This challenge actually tied in nicely with a commissioned card.  I love it when I can kill two birds with one stone.  Anything to make life easier works in my book.
Do play along with us if you have the time, it's always nice to see what you create with Wendy's gorgeous images and of course this time it's all the more special as you'll be using your favourtie

best teacher ever.......

Evening girls
It's showcase time once again over on All Dressed Up .  As always, Wendy our lovely illustrator, has four gorgeous new digis for you and can I just say they are all fantastic!!!
                     This is Best Teacher Ever and you'll find him in the All Dressed Up Etsy Store.

Don't ask me where the apple shaped card came from!!  I'd a flash of inspiration whilst I was colouring up this little fella.  Googled apple templates and made the shaped card.  The little pencils are kebab sticks cut to size and coloured with copics.  Well, it worked for me :)

We also have a blog hop going on at the moment in celebration of our  lovely illustrator Wendy's birthday.  You have the chance to win two digital images of your choice on each of our blogs plus there are a couple of special prizes up for grabs too so do hop along with us 

Did you know we have a Facebook Group too.  We'd love it if you joined us.  It's a great place to hang out and of course there's lots of gorgeous All Dressed Up inspiration and general crafty chatter going on 

Have a great evening girls
