back to school

A short and sweet post from me this afternoon to let you know about a colouring comp going on over on the Art by Miran  facebook group.
Miran has asked that we colour one of her cute images in our school colours

Dearie me it was so long ago I don't like to think about it!!!
It's also been a very long time since I had long flowing locks and was a skinny minny into the bargain lol
Anyway, I do hope you'll play along with us for the chance to win some cuties from Miran
Happy Crafting

fa la la la la - la la la la

Morning everyone
Happy Sunday :)  Mine will be spent decorating (sigh)  We are decorating our bedroom and it seems to be taking forever and a day so I've not had a whole lot of crafty time  lately.
I did however make time to do this quick card for the new Christmas release over on All Dressed Up.
Once again Wendy has surpassed herself and cuteness overload doesn't cover it.

Three Little Christmas Girls
Christmas Dolls
Christmas Owl
Christmas Reindeer

Aren't they fab?  They are in the Shop now so if you already have a favourite then you know where to go :)

I have used three little Christmas girls.  They are also available to purchase on their own.

I printed this quite large to fit more or less onto a 5.5" square card and coloured with copics.  I then mounted onto a red backer and that was more or less it.  Why embellish what is already gorgeous eh?
Our blog challenge  Autumn or Autumn colours is still running and  we'd love to see you take part in that  and if your not already a member of our Facebook Group we'd love it if you could join us there too.
Happy Crafting

autumn colours

Evening everyone
It's time for a new challenge over at  All Dressed Up
Our theme for this fortnight is

Excuse my poor wee soul being a wee bit lopsided.  She looks a wee bit drunk lol lol
I decided to fussy cut her and  when I stuck her down she looked fine.  When I had a closer look she was teetering but was stuck fast.  I'd no time to make another card before our deadline so she will need to do.
It's already in the bin though :)

papers- Lidl
ribbon, bloom and brads from stash

do you know your abc?

It's new challenge day over at The Paper Shelter and the theme for this on is

I'll bet there are more than a few happy Mummy's out there this week.  I remember how difficult it was to keep mine amused for the long summer break.  Of course there will no doubt be a few tears too as the wee munchkins head in for their first ever day :)

I thought I'd make a little bookmark for a change.  It's not often I do anything other than cards so it's nice to do something else now and again.
The papers were scraps from my box as is the ribbon.  I coloured the image which you can find over at The Paper Shelter store with copics and added a little set of pencils which I made from cocktail sticks and a wee bit of script to carry on the theme.
Do play along if you have time and again, time permitting go and see what my lovely teamies have created to inspire you :)
