Girl's Rule and that's official!

I thought I'd decorate the inside this time too....

You have to feel sorry for the poor dragon, as we all know high heels can be a real pain!!

My "Christmas Mojo" finally arrived!

What can I say, thanks must go to Mo Manning!

Have you guys seen her newest creations - go check them out - they are awesome

Little Elf Min
I was going to make it into a card, but I splurged on several other Mo digi's today, so I fear the urge to colour will win over completing the card!

Happy crafting peeps, undoubtedly I will be back with more so pop back soon

Just a quick post to show you my latest Pencil/Kraft card effort......................

This is a combination of Caran D'ache Supracolor Soft and Prismacolor Premier - in other words 252 wooden sticks of gorgeous colour to play with .... heaven....

I'd love to hear what you guys think

Bye for now

Animals Rule!

Well they do over at Dustin Pike's blog this week!!

Yep, it's Pike's Playground Challenge time again, and this week we are dedicating it to all things furry, four legged, slithery or scaly.  Did you know it's National Zoo Keeper week July 17-23?

King of the Jungle Pond!

Colouring: Copics (sorry no list)
Papers: DCWV All About Boys stack
Misc: Machine stitching, Chalk ink, Gold Peel-offs

I am lucky enough to have a garden that backs on to our local river, which means my garden is always full of frogs 'n' toads so I couldn't resist Dustin's uber cute amphibian!

Now it's your turn - "hop" on over to Dustin's Blog HERE - I am looking forward to seeing all your fab entries.

Thanks for dropping by

I've got some great news to share

Now, after a wonderful trip to the US I was planning to hit the ground running and jump right back in to crafting. Unfortunately, I picked up a chest infection and lost my voice whilst away and had to spend my first morning back in the UK at the Doctors - hopefully the medication will kick in soon, but until it does I'm taking things a bit steady.

Anyway, I won't let a wheezy chest or a croaky voice stop me from sharing some really great news with all my bloggy readers.........................

I've been asked to join the "Make it Colourful" Design Team!!

  If you've never paid the site a visit, go take a peek, it's a wonderful mecca for all those like me who strive to learn new or improve their colouring skills with really exciting weekly challenges. Ooh and did I mention that the awesome designs we use are available here at Make it Crafty

This weeks challenge is Colouring Hair (but NOT in normal colours)

and here's the Copic list...

What do you think?

Have a great weekend everyone
