I thought I'd do a coloured digi this week, but you'll be getting a black and white one as usual, that way you can make him any colour you like. He'll be here for a few days and hopefully this weeks freebie digi will be here too. Had such a week!! I had dogs everywhere...well, it felt as if I did!! Knocked myself out, so I feel a bit like poorly Tomas! (Or should that be 'Pawly Tomas'? Now I've broken the cheep glasses I was using while waiting for my new ones... another week to wait for them! Anyway here he is, download him HERE: NO Sharing ANYWHERE PLEASE!!! A comment would be lovely! Please show me what you make!! Thank you for stopping by! Email me if you have trouble downloading. Title: PAW TOM

Here's my card, love all that hair!! But she's not really finished yet! (I told you I was late!) I printed her out ready to 3D but all my 'Ice Grey' Promarkers have run out, well, they didn't actually run out (Promarkers with legs suddenly came into my mind then...) but anyway, you know what I mean! I wanted Lucy Loo Bookaholic from Unky's EAST WIND to have black hair, which I'm rubbish at, never know what colours to blend, black looks so dark on it's own, so a quick trundle to You Tube and I found our own blogging friend Kimbley and you definitely need the ice greys! Here's my card so far...I've used the Unky image called Lucy Loo Bookaholic. I only just had enough of the wrong colour grey to do this one. (you won't see her when I 3D her later) She has been printed over the background paper, (as a PNG) so that saves a bit of colouring. The only thing that has been 3D-ed at this time, is the book. The card is 6x6 with a tiny slice cut off the front. (I did that because the paper was a little short.) The papers I've used came as a freebie download from CardMaking and PaperCraft. Always worth a visit for their freebie papers! On the inside I covered up the shortness again by just leaving the black layer showing and covering it with some Oriental peel-offs. The Freebie font is called HongKong. I'm not sure what the puched out sign means, perhaps you do! I wasn't sure which way up it should go either. I think it might mean Blessings or Happiness. When the card is closed you can see the 'Just For You' sentiment. I'll take another pic later. That's it for now... I'll add more soon...
This is only going to be here for 24 hours! I've lost my glasses and no amount of trying to finish off this weeks Wednesday freebie is working, it's so wonky it looks like a snail on speed has tried to draw it! This was going into the store tomorrow price £1.99 but for those of you who regularly pop in, even though I'm a terrible blogger these days... you can grab it for free now. NO SHARING PLEASE ON ANY SITE ONLY DOWNLOWN TO YOUR COMPUTER< NO SAVING ANYWHERE ELSE!! Thank you!! CLOSED downloaded 273
Oh my goodyness, doesn't Christmas come around fast these days!?! There I was, making sandcastles and now it's time to get out those holly reefs and baubles again and make something Christmasy because Spyder's Other Corner is Sponsoring C.R.A.F.T! I'm a bit late, very late actually so I've back dated this! Mainly because I wasn't here, been very busy walked loads of dogs and lost my glasses somewhere from gettng out of the car and getting back in an hour later, so can't see the blinking thing!! Anyway, the CRAFT challenge is nice and easy so go and add your Christmas creations to the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog to be in with a chance of winning some prizes. I'm just one of many sponsors, Dragonsmoore, Spyder's Other Corner will be sending someone FIVE DIGI's of their choice from the store. The C.R.A.F.T. Design team have chose: Five Happy Snowmen and Santa Hedgie. Can't wait to 'see' them! Here's a card I made for this challenge using...Hedgie With His Christmas Poinsettia. He's also holding a Holly Reef with berries to hang on his door. I've decoupaged the hedgie, he got a little bent, so don't look too closely! There's aboutfive layers, all with different bits cut off. I've also used green card and red miri card to layer even more. I've added a reef charm and used a Promarker to colour the little ribbon red. The stars and beads were cut from a red ribbon, the red dotted ribbon is from my stash. The little robin brad is from a Forever Friends set, 'Cosy Christmas', I've also added mock stitching and loads of Stickles glitter. The little holly leaf on his hat is a Woodware punch and the font I used is a freebie on most sites, it's called CurlyShirley. Inside I used Papermania 'Home For Christmas' papers. At the moment I've left the insid blank. Behind the hedgie is one of my always freebies found HERE That's it! Click over to C.R.A.F.T. and join in! Simples!! Because I've lost my glasses, there's no freebie yet, so I hope you grabbed the one day freebie... hard Cheddar if you didn't! (I'm soooo mean) this weeks freebie is half done, the other half, without my glasses looks very troubled!! I suddenly realise how much I use them. Anyway, I have a new pair coming, rather dearer than I expected and I have to wait for two weeks... so typing, reading and card making isn't easy! Hoping to add this to a few...
Reminder Time! I know it's hot, and thinking of Christmas is a bit hard when there's no biting wind, rain or snow, but there's still a week left in this Christmas In July- Use your Die-cuts and/or Punches challenge, so there's still time for all that to happen!
Of course if you're lucky enough to live in hot places when it is Christmas, you must be used to it by now so, get crafting and come and join in over on Quirky Crafts..
Stitchy Bear is Sponsoring the challenge, so there's prizes to be had!!
Here's my card...I was going to show you the other bunny, but he hopped off before I
could take a picture and I haven't seen him in days! (I'm guessing he's
buried under a load of toppled over crafty goods somewhere...anyway.
This is Four Calling Birds, by Delicious Doodles, from Stitchy Bears
Digi store. It did start off on a larger card, but it was not my normal
thickness and was sooo thin it kept falling over, (bit like me when....
oh never mind) so that was snipped off and re-fixed to a thicker smaller
card. The strip of red dotty paper was from a Forever friends Christmas set and
was originally higher up the card, but it doesn't look too bad where
it ended up!
Outside I've used Punches. Corner Punch, Holly and Berry Punch
and the Leaf punch, which also embosses. I've coloured using both the
computer and Promarkers and covered it all with Stickles Glitter Glue.
The holly paper you can just see behind was a freebie from a crafting
mag. I've added a peel off Happy Christnas in silver to go with the silver miri card I used to layer the birds.
Inside I used another punch on the money pocket side and a Spellbinders
die-cut on the other side. Papers are all bits from my stash. That's
it!! Pop over to Quirky Crafts and Join in!!
I know, it's Thursday and I'm late again, so I thought I'd do a rabbit...(white rabbit...late...never mind!) Here's Carrots The Bunny, or with those legs he might be a Hare! (but who am I to say that with legs like mine!) NO sharing on any sharing site, no adding the unwatermarked digi to any blog or forum etc! Just save to your computer. Links back here are always welcome! Go HERE to download him. It may be very slow. Any problems email me with BUNNY in the title and I'll send him to you. A comment would be lovely! Thank you for stopping by!
OMG!!! Look whatIke'sdone with him!!! He's now called Rats The Rabbit!!
Here's the card I made for the challenge also using Butterfly Bear. It's a picture inspiration Challenge, all blues, smidgens of greens and a lovely butterfly too. I've used mostly blues in making this card.
The first paper I fixed to the card, you can't really see. It's a freebie, it' from a set of scrap booking papers called 'A Little Spring In Your Step'by Summer Driggs. I think it was green dot paper, but because I'd run out of ink, it came out blue! It was printed onto some fab thick silky paper, which I can't get anymore! (boo!) So I just had to use it! (Aw, shame you can't see it though!) I've also used PinkPetticoat 'Clouds' paper on the card (printed on brochure paper, which is like decoupage paper, sort of shinny) as well as a background behind the bear. (The clouds are a little bit smaller) I've coloured the lilac butterfly ribbon with a blue Promarker to make it a little bit bluer. I've also added glitter, gems, a tiny butterfly charm, a sticker sentiment and the flowers, which I've made using paper sprayed with Comic Shimmer in a sparkly blue. I've coloured the Butterfly Bear with two different shades of blue Promarker and blended the colours together. He's also been 3D-ed (so there's a leg and an arm missing on the top bear) It's just enough to make him pop out and give him a little bit of a shadow. I've also popped the butterfly and added gems and glitter to the body and wings, but his Antonie were snipped off (ouch!) I think the butterfly paper you can see came free with a magazine, might be LOTV, but I'm not sure.
Inside I've used some tiny butterfly
papers also a freebie 6x6 paper pack from Paper Craft Inspirations last month called Lily Rose.
(It came with matching Lily Rose stamps too, which I haven't used yet!) The font on the inside is a freebie on most sites, it's called AdineKirnberg-S (google the name, as I've been told not to link fonts any more to a certain site!) That's it I think! All you have to do now is pop over to [Pin]spirational and join in, don't forget the winner will have a choice of five digis of their choice from Dragaonsmoore, Spyder's Other Corner!Hoping to add this to a few
