Good time of year too to send out some thank you cards for the lovely Christmas goodies so I made a a card and gift bag all from the Funky Seasons CD from Funky Hand a total bargain at the sale price of £1 while stocks last
Non Traditional Christmas is the challenge this week at Delicious Doodles I used the lovely Lycaonia image for card and used papers by Funky Hand there's a stray bit of glitter on her face that makes her look as if she has a glitter moustache so that's even more NON traditional for Christmas !!!!!Shopping nearly complete , couple of doggy pressies to buy and that's me
Hoping to spend the weekend finishing off some orders and making a start on my own cards

This weeks challenge at Delicious Doodles is all about making a scene
I made an ATC using The Graveyard image
Teri has such lovely scenic images to help you with this challenge
Very busy week for me with hardly any crafting- been trying to settle Ellis into a routine and then had to rush Misty to the vet as she ripped one of her claws again and they took it off but she's been limping badly and feeling very sorry for herself
Think some crafting and doggy cuddles are in order for the weekend
The challenge this time at Charisma Cardz is Glitter and Shine so I used glittery shiny paper from my stash- think they ight be K & Co papers, they look like it anyway, I also added glitter to the flowers and on the dress also- but it's quite hard to get all the shiny , glitter effects in a photo
Meet my new baby- ELLIS, the colliewobble loony dog
Got her last Friday night so been very pre occupied with her since then- she has a few issues so we need to see if we can work through them and I really need to find where the batteries are fitted so I can remove them to get a rest !!!
Over at Delicious Doodles the challenge this week is On The Dark Side
For my topper which is not yet a card I used Teri's image Skully Pendant and the Skull and Bones Paper
Doesn't she look cute with her lovely bow....hehe.....
Have a fantastic Friday and looking forward to seeing your entry this week
Also looking forward to a nice long weekend as it's a holiday Monday- might even squeeze in a wee visit to see the Kelpies at some point hopefully
May Flowers is the Charisma Cardz challenge this fortnight- I used some flowers from craftwork cards along with a blue prima flower and some fibres and a black peel off sentiment.
Fab sponsors again this challenge so hope you can join in
Well that's my decorating all finished for a while and I don't want to see a paint brush or a tin of paint for a long long time- should really take some piccies to show, maybe do that at the weekend as I plan on a quiet weekend doing lots of crafting
Have a great Thursday
There's a fab new release over at Funky Hand called Fading Beauty- full of lush green and purple papers for a bargain at only £2.99.
I made a butterfly card and little box using the papers and can't wait to play some more with the papers they are just beautiful
and a new digi stamp called Georgie Night Night- she;s is fun to colour and believe me before Britain's Got Talent come on tonight I will be dressed the same as her !!!
This weeks challenge over at Delicious Doodles is a lovely colour combo- BROWN and BLUE and I used some papers I have had in my stash for so long that I can't remember where I got them from along with the beautiful Blossom image from Teri.
Well today is my Dad's 80th Birthday- it won't be a huge big hulabaloo as he is still recovering from getting his new hip and has only just started being a wee bit more mobile but I'm sure he will still have a lovely day and hoping to manage a wee dinner somewhere.
Decorating all done too, just waiting on joiner to put up my new bathroom door but that won't be until next week so hoping for a nice wee quiet crafty weekend ahead- mmmmmmmmmm wonder if that will go to plan!
Hope you can join in the challenge this week to be in with the chance to win some fab images from Teri
This weeks challenge at Delicious Doodles is PINK AND GIRLY and i used these beautiful papers from Teri and the lovely Lilleth image.
I don't very often do pink and girly so this is as pink and girly as I get !
Carpet is getting fitted today so hopefully should be able to put the finishing touches to the hall tonight- and what is my next project...........nothing I'm never painting again
Have a lovely Friday

Hall nearly finished- getting new carpet tomorrow and new bathroom door arrives today so getting there....slowly but surely and hoping to get in some crafty time today too

This week the challenge at Delicious Doodles is Easter and I used this lovely On the Look Out bunny image for my card. Made a stepper card and covered it with paper from FunkyHand added some borders, flowers and my lovely bunny image coloured with pro markers.
Decided last week to paint the hall and it is turning into a marathon as there is wood half way up the walls then artex and it the wood was stained but I've decided to paint it white so I am currently at the loads of undercoat stage then I have the walls to paint- and that will need two coats then the glossing of all the wood including all the door frames and 3 cupboard doors. If I wasn't thinking of a new carpet before then I am now as I had a little accident with the undercoat. My whole house is a mess with things and paint everywhere- why when there is nothing much in a hall ????????well suppose I'll be finished in time for Christmas !
Hope you have a great Friday
