It's Quirky Time For Summer Memories!

Hi Peoples, I'm not here at all this week, so for once my DT card for the Quirky Crafts Challenge isn't late! It's on timer, and set to go! So...if you're not reading this... it didn't! Oops! Anyway, it's definitely on the challenge blog! Maybe I should be away more often. This fortnight it's
my turn to set theme. We're sponsored by...  
Bugaboo and Digital Delights! 
so I've chosen, because I'm away sunning myself (hopefully) I'd like to see some of your... 
Quirky Summer Memories
I was brought up on a farm/s so most of the time I played in the hay building camps, scrumped for apples, made dams in the river or fished for minos, but quite often the mums would gather up us kids and take us down to the beach where we'd spend nearly every day of the Summer Holidays just messing about with sand and seaweed! 
Instead of using a little monkey in a boat, which had other memories... I chose to use these five Bugaboo digi's to make a beach scene.
I've 3D-ed three of them to make them pop. I've added orange eyelash wool and punched out crabs using a small Woodware punch. (The one on the monkey's ear is there to cover up a smudge) 
The papers were free from a Crafty Mag some time ago, (You can just see a surf board on the inside) The font I used is a freebie, called Brush Script MT. You probably already have it, if not just Google the name.
Well, that's it! You have two weeks to join in and show us a few of your summer memories! Pop over to Quirky Crafts! Thanks for stopping by!

A Quirky Late Reminder...more Red Red Wine...

OMG We're already galloping through September, where have I been!? It was still August yesterday! (No it wasn't Lyn) I'm sooo behind I'm not sure where I should start, so... I'll have to forget last Wednesday and start with last Sunday instead, which should have been Quirky Crafts Reminder, all and grapes and red and wine and even more red and people drinking it! Pop (No wine!) over and have a look, you still have a few days to join in.  
Even though it's my latest DT card ever, I'll still add it to last weekends post.
So here's my make. Very quick and simple as I have no time!! I love that ribbon and nearly every card I make almost gets it suck on a corner, only to be taken off again, but this time I think I leave it there!
I've used the glass, from our sponsors, Crackerbox Palace. I'd already coloured it on the computer for the first challenge but didn't use it, so decided to just tipped two together in Word and add a sentiment, and once printed out, coloured them again with Promarkers. I  made the  'Congratulations!' sentment using a freebie font called 'Adorable'
The papers are are actually  Christmas papers by docraft Papermania 'Home For Christmas'. Love them coz they're nice and thick! 180gsm. That's it, must go...loads to do!!!! thanks for stopping by!!

Giv'us Some Quirky Red Red Wine!

It's Cazzy's turn to set the theme over on the Quirky Crafts challenge Blog and see would like to see, anything about wine (wouldn't we all!) She would love to see wine glasses, wine bottles, people with wine glasses, (holding them, not wearing them...) grapes, etc. but also, it could be any project with wine or red colours.
 Our team have made some great projects, so pop over and join in! Our sponsor for this challenge is... 
 Here's my creation. Sorry yes I know, it's late and that's a bugaboo image but well, it went so well and for some reason it was sitting in my Cracker Box folder on my computer begging me to join it up with the sentiment and the grapes and the bottle of wine all from our sponsor, so I did. Only trouble was, my computer thinks it's out of ink, but it's not so I decided to print to hubby's computer in the room next door, and like hubby, his computer and printer were snoozing....and no amount of prodding and poking would wake either of them up!
 I wanted to put everything together on my computer and then print it out onto my last bit of nice glossy photo card. My last bit of glossy photo card... yes, you can see it's all going to go wrong, can#t you!?!...hmmm. 
After failing to print nine times... it suddenly printed...agh but I'd forgot to resize it on that last try and it printed it out the full A4 size....but never mind...I think it'll make a great sign for my sis-in-law to hang on her office wall
  My next attempt worked just right, this time printed on some matt photo card/paper 235gsm. It's all one print, the little boats backing paper is by PinkPetticoat, Bugaboo image and the sentiment, grapes, wine bottle, not forgetting the words on the wine bottle, which I nearly did, all come from Cracker Box Palace our lovely sponsors (all coloured on the computer) I then snipped the corners with a corner punch, folded it over and that's it, done...and normally would've taken about two minutes.... not seven hours! 
So now it's your turn, all about wine but could also be any project with wine or red colours!! Thanks for stopping by!!

This Weeks Wednesday Digi CLOSED

Okay, I thought....what shall I draw?!? Has to be quick because I'm up early in the morning and as always...I'm doing this at about ten to midnight. And then an owl hooted...well, since the huge cedar pine tree was chopped down just across the road a few years ago (naughty people weren't allowed to, and some say they/ or someone had it 'ringed' to make it unsafe and therefore okay to chop down..) there's not been any owl noises at night so, on hearing that woo woo...I decided to draw you a Christmas Owl...although he looks a bit like a robin, anyway, NO sharing on ANY sharing site just download to your computer...of course....I could've been wrong... it might have been a pigeon I heard! CLOSED!

Me and My 'New' Doggy Van

Seeing it's National Doggy Day today,  I thought it was about time I showed you what was keeping me from my craft room and blogging and a few of you did say you'd like to see it... My van is now fulling functional, signed and so far has a fabulous cage inside ready for taking dogs out walkies! Quite some time ago I showed you my little drawing of a dog, cat, mouse rabbit, puppy, tortoise and a parrot that I'd drawn for my business cards, well...with a bit of jigging to take out any 'pixelating' (probably not spelt right) I've used the same image on the van too!

John helped a lot with fitting in an electric fan in the roof and driving to Surrey to get our ebay win of a transport cage. It wasn't the font I really wanted but Russel at  The Sign Builder said it was a bit too fiddly and chose this font instead. I quite like it now and I'm very pleased with it! Right! Anyone for walkies!!

Stamp on it Over to the Quirky Post!

Yes, I know I'm late... but I can see by looking at my ratings, no one's noticed! So, a big thank you for popping in today! Here's my DT card for the Reminder of the latest Quirky Crafts Challenge, Put A Stamp On It! It's not as hard as it sounds, honestly! 
Anyway! Here's my effort, but please pop over to the challenge and see the fabulous makes by the rest of the design team, they have all worked so very hard this reminder and made some incredible projects!!
I've used a scalloped card, thinking it looked more 'stampy' and these posting penguins, called Dear Mr Claus from our sponsor Stitchy Bear. Then coloured using Promarkers. I die-cutted the first picture with my snowy background (chopping off a few feet!) It's a little faded, as once again, I'm running out of ink! Once cut out I then added more 3D layers. 
I've also added stickles glitter glue, Christmas ribbon, a little Father Christmas envelope with a tiny stamp on it in shrink plastic and a Christmas flower. The flower and leaves I cut from the Christmas paper stack I used, which was another freebie from Cardmaking and PaperCraft Mag a few years back. They're 'shinny' papers, called Berry Merry by Jennifer Ellory. 
I've used three different background papers, no, four, counting the flower. There's a border punch down one side, which has little holly leaves and then the banner paper, which I've used in its entirety inside.
The inside I've left without a sentiment at the moment but have added the stamped out Santa Envelope I use on the front (which was also a freebie from a mag)As you can see, it shrunk down quite small. I had to chase that little beggar all over my craft room with the heat gun!
Well I think that's it!! Thank you for stopping by! As always, later hoping to add to some challenges...
