Hi, over at C.R.A.F.T. challenge this week we are being sponsored by Alifactory and the winner will be able to choose two images of their choice. I've chosen 'Cute Puppy Dog' and here is the Colour Savannah pallette.
I've coloured my image with Promarkers and here are the colours I used.: Spice, Honeycomb, Red, Pear Green, Moss & Canary. Added a little bit of thread and a button embellishment which says 'whoof', faux stitching along the edge of backing paper. So come along and join in the fun.
Bye for now. Jeanette

Vintage Car - UR65

Over at MAWTT this week the theme is Vintage, and so I thought I'd bring out my vintage car stamp and enter in the challenge. The image is from Butterfly Kiss and is called 'Old Croak', which is how I feel after the week I've had! I've use my Cuttlebug for the numbers, added swirls, buttons, brads and glossy accents on the headlights. I hoe you like it. Jeanette

C.R.A.F.T Challenge #125 - Autumn

Hello, it's been a busy week here trying to catch up with cards, books, flowers and Christmas Tree books ready for my next batch of craft fayre's. The late nights and very early mornings (before a full days work) is starting to catch up with me and can't wait for the weekend to do more crafting at a 'normal' time of the day.

Over at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge, as you can see from my title, the theme this week is 'AUTUMN' and this is my first post as a DT and I'm very excited to have joined a great team of people and looking forward to future challenges.
Our sponsors this week are:

Prize is 3 digi stamps of your choice


Prize is 3 diecut packs of your choice from their site

I've used an image from 'Rubber Stamp Craft' and used Promarkers to colour. Added glossy accents on her boots and the top of the umbrella. Paper is from my stash, added a swirl, ribbon and some letter beads.

So pop along to C.R.A.F.T and come and join us in the fun.
Bye for now

Sew Vintage

Over at Crafty Pad Designs the challenge this week is Vintage. I I have to admit I do avoid vintage because I just don't seem to get it right but I'm having another bash at it. I love these digi images which is from Crafty Pad Design. Sew I've used two images which I've coloured with some ink pads, used an old page from a book, brown hand made paper, vintage lace, and some sewing elements. Hope you like it. Jeanette

Christmas Book Trees

I have my grandsons this weekend, so not much crafting going on here, however I thought I'd post these Christmas tree books that I'm making this year. I usually use about 190 - 200 pages on an average size book and l've decorated the edges with a little glitter glue, buttons and bows. The older books look very Victorian. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow, if I have any energy left!!! Jeanette

House Mouse - Christmas Sparkle

Now I know I said in my previous posting that I wasn't ready for Autumn challenges yet but I'm certainly into Christmas season already. It seems to get earlier and earlier especially for us crafters! Here I have used one of my fav images from House Mouse called Perfect Harmony. I've coloured this with water colour pencils, glittered the edges, the snow and the candle flame. The background paper is fab. It has glittered dots all over it and really sparkles but my photo is rubbish. Added a large bow, red square gems and glossy accents to the berry's. I'm entering this into House Mouse Challenge where the theme is Christmas Sparkle and Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Sparkle & Bling. Bye for now. Jeanette

C.R.A.F.T. - Bright Colours

Over at C.R.A.F.T the theme is 'Bright Colours' and I'm so glad as I'm not ready to let go of summer yet  or ready for autumn themes that are around at the moment, although I'm sure by the weekend I will be. It's been a beautiful day here in Dorset although very breezy. I'm getting a bit worried about my neighbours tree, seems to be lots of it in my garden. Oh well guess what we are doing the weekend! Slight lack of posting and commenting I'm afraid because at the craft fair Sunday I had a very successful day and need to catch up with some more concertina books and cards. Even my knitting is being neglected but I have promised myself a couple of hours knit knatting on Saturday evening, if my grandsons go to bed early enough...............not!!!

So onto my card. This is the first time I've used this image. It's from Wild Rose Studio and called Toby and Butterfly. I've cut him out and decoupage his ear, coloured with Promarkers and glossy accents to his nose. I created the little background that he is mounted on and decoupaged the butterfly as well. Added a flower and snail puff stickers. Buttons and ribbons from stash. Hope you like it. Jeanette

PBSC Week 171 Down On The Farm

This is a funny image, I can think of many people I could send this image to. At PBSC the theme is Down On The Farm. It was very hard to choose an image for this challenge because you can image we have lots of 'Kow' images but I know somebody who wants a 50th so I chose this one for the laugh. Coloured with Promarkers and a little stickles glitter added to the flames for a bit of sparkle. I used the end of the wooden coffee stirrers for the rickety picket fence and a few added hand punched flowers. Hope you like it. Jeanette
