I've been published

Morning Girls
All dressed Up are ebing featured in issue 51 of Complete Cardmaking and guess who has a card in ?
Yip little old moi :)
Complete Cardmaking is UK's first magazine which is solely dedicated to digital crafting, and each edition is jam packed with gorgeous goodies on a CD rom for us to use in our crafting.  So, think lovely papers and cute digital stamps etc and your on the right track

I used some of the papers and digital images to make this card in a box.

There are some other makes from my very talented teamies over on the All Dressed Up blog today too so be sure to pop over for a  look see.

As for me, well I'm getting there.  It's a slow process though and, I am bored stiff, yet can't be bothered to do anything.  Even the though of making a card or two fills me with dread.  I'm hoping this passes sooner rather than later and I get back to some form of normality in the very near futute.

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.

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!

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
