Another late one!!

Hello there guys!
Here I am back with another creation. I wasn't too late for PFP challenge last night, as it changes at 9.00am, Phew! This time I would like my creation to be entered in The Little Yellow Challenge, which is something other than a card, so I've made a mirror.
I never quite made it... I bought it plain to alter, from my local craft shop- 'The Edinburgh Craft Shop'.
I then painted it black, using acryllic paint, then i stamped 2 swirls in the corners using a clear stamp covered with pink acryllic paints, but it never worked out very well, so i went over it with a paintbrush& the paint.. I then did some dots around the glass with an embossing tool dipped in the acryllic pink again. I then stuck 2 black gem stones,1 pink pearl then another black gemstone on the glass, which you can only see in one picture, as I had to cover the glass with paper to get a decent picture (well my mum did,as she took the pictures... which you may be able to guess as you get further down the post, lol!).
Well here it is...

(that's my mum taking the picture, just trying to get the gem stones& pearls in which are in the top right-hand corner!)

and my swirls...

and the other one...

I hope you like it :).

Big Hugs,

A Little Late! ...

Hello Guys, Sorry I haven't posted for ages! but here I am back with a card, now I think I have probably missed it as I am so late in putting this on tonight but I would like my card to be entered for the passion for promarkers challenge this week which is a sketch and any colours of your choice. I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you'll enjoy looking at it :D! so here it is..

The sentiment reads: 'Hope You Have A Toad-ally Cool Birthday!' as it is a toad on the front of the card, get it? haha.. oh well: I found it funny& rather witty for me:)!

My Recipe:

(Well this is going to be fun& games as i was using old stuff after I had a craft clearout!)
Image: recieved from an imgae swap, I think!
Colouring: Promarkers-I will update this with the colours soon, as I'm at grannys and my mum has ran off wtih all her promarkers.
From a pack 'Cardmaker's Creativity Pack, The Ultimate Collection'

Were punched from leftover bits of my paper with a brad stuck through them.

Printed off the dreaded old computer!! (well its not old, but thats what my granny calls it, just 'cos she cant use it- heehee!)

Thank you so much for looking, I hope you like it!!

Big Hugs,

Good afternoon there all you lovely people :)! hope your all well and having a good weekend. Im here today to show you a tiny little creation I've made!! and when I say tiny, I mean tiny! I was at the gala day today at Mayfield and won a bottle of Red spicy mulled wine on a tombola, and as I dont like wine..
and Im too young =O! and no-one else in my house likes it, I've decided to give it to my uncle&aunty (Stephen&Sarah). So I thought I would decorate it a bit.. and although its not very much I quite like it so I thought I would show it to you guys.

Here you go then ....

and my wee bit of decoration .....

.. and since I haven't really done that much to it, theres no point in giving a recipe, so will just tell you what I done:
* I ran some cream & red CS through the bug with some label nesties to get my shapes.
I wrote 'Stephen&Sarah xxx' onto the cream bit and stuck it onto the red bit.

* Put 3 little red gems going round the side of the curve.

* Stuck it onto the top of the bottle with a glue dot.
* Tied a bow around the neck of the bottle with some cream ribbon from my stash.

I hope you like it, please leave comments if you have a few spare moments - Thankyou to those who do leave comments, it really encourages me, to acctually see that people do look at my work and do acctually like it - thanks again xx.

Hello everyone, hope your all ok and having a nice week (not sure there is such a thing unless its holiday- but ohwell!) This post is taking me ages to complete, cos I have a sore back, I do swimming for P.E at school and think I've pulled a muscle or something, and it hurts the more I hunch forward over this computer- so I keep having to stop every so often and sit right up and back to straighten my stupid back, lol !

This week the Colour Create Challenge sounded good - 'Pink Sorbet,Lemon and Chocolate' so I decided since this is probably my most favourite colour combo, I had to do it!
I just didnt know what to do.. then I spotted my little canvas I bought and painted at the weekend, and realised I didnt really like what I had done with it.. so I decided to 'Reduce,Re-use&Recyle' and I got scissors and cut all the material off the frame to leave me with a lovely little photo frame.. so I decided that should be what I used.. and I painted it white then started to decorate it until I came up with this..

and my image close-up.....

Image: Daisy, Coloured with Watercolours, I drew the letters to spell Kim and the little flower is just some wee stamp from my stash!
Embellishments: The brown and yellow flowers are punched using my Grannys flower punch, the cream ribbon down the side is from my stash and it has a nice sparkly pin shoved in the bow and last but not CERTAINLY not least - my most favourite embellishment in the world = PEARLS!!! and they are Kanban.
Frame: Well as I have said above, I painted the frame white then just went round the inside bit with some 'Worn Lipstick' Distress Inks and stamped all my images and my name and stuff onto white card and stuck it on the back.. and VOILA! there we have my frame :)!

I hope you like it.. 'cos I do =D ..
I would love to hear your comments if you have a spare second or two :)

Good afternoon everyone !
Hope you are all well..
and yes I am back: twice in one day!!! how have I managed it?!

But I was blog hopping this morning and found this amazing sketch from Crafts For Eternity and I absolutley loved it! So I decided that was it.. I was doing it. Then I don't know what happened but I thought I was doing the Just Magnolia challenge so changed my image from a Sugar Nellie to a Magnolia.. then I coloured it all and stuck it down and finished off the card then I realised that this sketch was for the other challenge and not the Just Magnolia one. So I have started a new card with their fabulous sketch...but back to this one.

This is the sketch:

and this is my card :

and my colouring:

Card Recipe:
-Tilda With Flower

Coloured with Pro Markers
White Gel Pen for shadows.
-Some Pink,Green,Purple,Blue&White dotty stuff from my stash

-Green and purple CS (coordinations) for mounting
-Light pink CS from stash for mounting too
-The green and purple co-ordinations stuff is ran through the bug with scalloped circle nesties to get my background circle and my circle for my sentiment
-'Limeade Daydream' (Doodlebug) for the strip behind the image.
-Creative Cafe Clear Stamps; 'BeHappy'

-Flower was punched using all the CS noted above

-Pearls, Mini Pink,Lilac and White (kanban)
-The white lace is from my stash

I hope you like it :)


Good morning everyone!
Im on rather early this morning.. couldn't sleep much last night 'cos I kept thinking about posting this card! I really wanted to take part in the crafty monkeys challenge this week and couldnt wait for a new one to be posted.. though when it came up- it was 'One for the men' and i can't stand making cards for boys or men.. all my ideas are mostly pink focused!
But I was determined to give it a go.. So I started blog hopping for inspiration and found that the Simon Says Challenge and this week their challenge was 'One for the men' too! Wait for it.. So I continued hopping along on my travels and found that Friday Sketchers had a lovely sketch that would fit well with my card for their challenge this week.. and none of these blogs say you can't combine their challenges with others so I think I have myself a 3 challenge combo!
I would like this card to be entered into:
1. Friday Sketchers - Sketch.
2. Crafty Monkeys - One for the boys/men.
3. Simon Says - One for the boys/men.

Here it is..

and my colouring....

and I didn't decorate the inside as such.. but I did stamp and mount a wee greeting for it, so here is the greeting i used..

Card Recipe:

Image: Freebie Digi Download 'Cool Dude' from Curly Girly Me.
Coloured With Pro Markers.
A bit of white gel pen for a shadow.
Papers: Blue&Green stripey stuff from my stash.
Just some light blue, dark blue and brown CS from my stash too!
Embellishments: Some tiny little blue pearls (kanban)
Some nice light blue ribbon from my stash.

I hope you like it& please leave comments if you have a spare moment

Hello Everyone..
I really really liked the look of the Sugar Bowl sketch this week, which is a sketch by Marlene; with a 'Please Include' of buttons, so I thought I would give it a go. Now its quite late and my mums camera doesn't work very well at night, especially when she does nothing but use it all day.. by the end of the night I think it gets quite tired. So my pictures are a bit dark, and my buttons look red.. but really they are dark pink.

So here it is..

and my image close-up..

Card Recipe:
Image: ' Gorjuss Sitting'coloured with distress inks, then white gel pen on some bits for a shadow. Distress ink colours:
Tattered Rose for Skin
Worn Lipstick for Dress
Frayed Burlap for Hair
Worn Lipstick and Mustard Seed for Tights
Mustard Seed for little flower in her hair.
Papers: Pink cloudy stuff from my stash (well my Grannys!) for the very back bit
Empress Cream from the Porcelain pack for the next bit
Some pink and yellow bazzil CS from my stash for mounting
Yellow CS from my stash ran through the bug with 'Swiss Dots' for the strip down the middle
'Bumble bee daydream' CS (doodlebug) for the 3 little strips at the bottom.
Embellishments: The flowers and buttons used are from my stash (well Grannys!).

I hope you like it, Please leave comments if you have enough time.
