Another Fairy Chrimble Card.

I started this card last week... doesn't time fly! I've only just finished it about five seconds ago. Glue's still wet!
And talking about being wet (and muddy!!) I've been really busy with the dogs. Tommy was staying over on his 6th birthday, so we had to have a doggy birthday party with friends Bronte and Benson. Pictures are a bit blurry but you get the gist!
Anyway, I'll still add this card as a DT card to the Quicky Crafts Blog even though there's only about a day left to join in with my Christmas Challenge.
 I've used the same fairy as last week Mixie from That Crafty Place.
This time I wanted to colour her with Christmas colours, so here she is..
I've used my own freebie snowy backing paper, and printed her over it, then coloured her with Promarkers, used a white gell pen, covered her in Stickles Glitter Glue, added a stick on pressie, some holly and a tree. 
Once again, like my other card, (here) I've 3D-ed the frilly part of her dress.
The Christmas Tree papers, the stick on ribbon and the papers inside the card are from a 6x6 pack by Dovecraft.
 The sentiment came free from a different set given away by one of the Crafty Mags I subscribe to. I've mounted everything on to green red and gold miri card. I think she'd look great in a Santa's hat, but maybe not!
I'm not sure I like her wings this time, but I like her boots!
Didn't get to link up hardly any of those challenges last week, will try harder this time! Craft have a colour combo...I think I have most of them here. And just to get you started Jo has added some freebie papers for you to down load! That's it for now! Thank you for stopping by.

Reminder. Quirky Crafts Christmas Challenge!

I surprise, or maybe that should be scare myself sometimes, 'specially when I (look in the mirror..?) No, manage to get a card finished! 
 It's been soooo wet this week, Hubby has Man Flu, I've had another one of those scans, well it's been a year, fingers crossed I'm not back in Hospital like last Christmas Eve. We also have dogs staying and they all got very muddy! ... then the tumble drier broke down, (Not that we use it to dry the dogs!) Luckily, even with man flu, hubby mended it! but then spilt his red wine all over my papers! Never mind.
So, to cover myself, just in case I haven't finished my card....(I'm typing this before I've finished it..) I might add a little thing I made last year to either hang on the tree, or act as table place names using a Bugaboo digi image. 
Anyway, the challenge is easy! Any Thing Christmas. 
 Come and join in over on Quirky Crafts, with my Christmas Challenge. We're also calling for some new members for our Design Team. You can either add DT to your entry when you join in the challenge or send Cazzy an email.(Details over on Quirky)
Right. Here's my card for this weeks reminder. (It's finished!) I've gone blue. (well, it has suddenly got cold!)
This time I've used Mixie from That Crafty Place.  I printed her out a couple of times after I changed her to a PNG, then scanned in a bit of the blue snowflake paper and placed her over the top of it (Saves colouring in the back ground). I've mounted all the backing papers on silver mirri card, added matching Stick-on Ribbons, tiny cardboard letters, loads of Stickles Glitter, white eye-lash wool, peel-offs, and tiny gems. 
All the papers, ribbons and those little round diecut letters come from a set called Winter Wonderland by TrimCraft/Dovecraft. (There's also tags and tiny shaker toppers too, but I've had them for years so they might not be that easy to find now but look out for their new Winter Wonderland designs.  (Must get me some!)
I've also added some peel-off stars and snowflakes. (I've cheated a bit, where you can only see half a snowflake, I've cut it in half. (No one will know!) and it does mean, if you only have two and you want four...  (obviously you only get to see half but it does save a few crafty pennies)
I decided to only use a few different ProMarker blues to colour my fairy, then added the Stickles to give her loads of Christmas sparkle, I've also 3D-ed the frilly bit of her dress so it pops out a bit.
Hoping to join in with some challenges; every week I think this but by the time I find a spare hour, I've usually fallen asleep!  That's it I think! Thanks for stopping by!! Always lovely to hear from you!

Merry Happy Quirky Christmas!

Happy, Merry? I never know what to say...I think I usually go with Happy New Year and then, it has to be Merry Christmas! Anyway, get your Christmas creations over to Quirky Crafts Challenge blog and join in my challenge, Any Thing Christmas.  The Challenge started yesterday, but as usual, I'm running very late...well, only one day! Perhaps if I hint loud enough Santa will bring me a new computer and printer!! (Ones that like each other and don't fight!!)
 I added an oldie  creation of mine last night using a Bugaboo image to the Quirky Blog, but have just managed to load up my new creation.
Here it is.  I've used Gift Giving Cedric from one of our sponsors Digital Delights. He's quite cute, isn't he!
 I finally managed to print out four of him, my computer and printer just would not work most of last week, so hubby got the sledge hammer out... Anyway, I coloured him (The elf, not hubby) with Promarkers,(I found them!!) and then cut him up so I could 3D him. (I've now got a new tube of silicone glue... I wonder how long it will last before it all goes solid!?) I've added some extra stick-on presents, loads of Stickles Glitter, red gems and a bit of holly as well as a snowflake button and ribbons. The papers were free from a crafting mag. They're called 'Me to You'  I've layered everything on to green card.
 The sentiment was done on the computer. The font is a freebie. It's called Curlz MT. just Google it and you'll find it somewhere. (Better not link it, I get moaned at!)
 I'll add a picture of the inside later as I've added a pocket to hide Christmas tokens or money, but didn't have any... right...that's it for now...must go take out more dogs!!! Here's some of them I'm walking this afternoon! Go and 'LIKE' my page!! Bye for now! xx

Going Crafty with a Quirky Feather....again!

I actually finished this card about 6o'clock yesterday morning... found the camera and surprise surprise, the batteries worked... but there was no SD card in it, and the camera's memory only allows you to take three pictures. (How annoying is that!) But, believe it or not, (and you wouldn't if you could see the mess I made making the last card) I found a SD card under a Very Useful Box in my messy X-Craft room. 
So here I am, only a day late (two days now!) this time to join in with Quirky Crafts latest challenge reminder, 'Put A Feather in it' or something like that. Still plenty of time to enter.
We are sponsored by, the lovely and fabulous
 CRAFTY RIBBONS so there's loads of fabulous prizes! 
Here's my second card... told you it was better than the first one (posted below)...well, I think it is! Still a bit late with the post, but I am so busy with life, dogs, bathroom refits and other things I can never find time. (Which I've said about a million times!) 
I found these penguins by chance, already coloured and mounted on silvery card- (still haven't found where I put my Promarkers) -waiting to be used, so all I had to do was find a nice lilac card to  match.
I mounted everything on silver holographic miri card, added white eye lash wool, tiny clear/silvery gems, silver peel off snowflakes and a Merry Christmas. 
The feathers are purple too, but they look blue in the photo, as do those little flower buds. (who said, 'the camera never lies'?) I dabbled loads of Stickles Glitter glue over certain bits to make them stand out.
 I've lined the inside of the card with the same silver card and lilac papers, giving it a bit more weight so the card doesn't keep slidding down, or as I like to say, stops it doing the splits!
I think that's it... Don't forget to pop over to Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog and join in with anything crafty as long there's a feather!! Easy!! Thank you for stopping by.

Going Crafty with a Quirky Feather

Okay.... it's nearly midnight, (two weeks ago) I'm hunting for something that I may've printed out years ago so I can join in, as Design Team members are meant to do, with the current Quirky Crafts Challenge. It's easy, all you have to do is add a feather to your master-piece.
    As I've said before....I've no craft room as such...unless you count the pile of boxes in the hall, the bedroom, the iron board in the living room, the mess in what was my craft room and the place where my old (steam driven) computer is balancing now. I also own a printer that hasn't printed properly for over a year, I'm in search of  a camera, which most likely if I find it, will only have a battery life of about 10 seconds (or no SD card)...but I'm optimistic...and now, please forgive my smelling, my spell-check doesn't wok. Shoot!!
Shoot again! I've just realised... where the hell am I going to find a feather at this time of night? Hubby remarks he knows where there's a whole load of them...his pillow. Night night.
So... now by the glow of our outside security lights (which come on whenever our cat, Mr Jinx walks by)  I have found, a card, some glue, some backing papers with feathers and some with Christmas parcels in pink and green, (so that's now become my colour theme) I've also found a printed out Bugaboo coloured in Snowman!! (which is lucky because I can't find my Promarkers)
Week Later. Oops...me thinks I missed last weeks challenge, but my card is now finished. (Five minutes ago) I'm feeling so guilty, Sunday afternoon, after walking dogs,  I attempt to make card number two. Great, I find some more Bugaboo digi's already printed and coloured. Yay! Can't find the sillycone glue.(remember, my spell checker isn't working so that's how I spell it until I can find the glue... still haven't found it. This means I can't do 3D. I have foam pads, but the sticky has gone they're so old! Tip...Buy  when you need them, and use them up!
 Well.... here's the first card. I added anything I found, odd bits and pieces really. Pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in... there's still a week left! Anything crafty, just add a feather! Now all I have to do is clear up the mess I made making it! Second card will be here...soon! (I think it's better tan this one) Both will be over on the Quirky Blog sometime soon. (That'll surprise them!!) Thank you for stopping by!!

This Weeks Wednesday Digi. (Late again)

yes, I know...I'm late again! Sorry to those of you who nip in to see if there's a freebie.... and there isn't one...well, not a new one...but on the good side, at least those who forget to pop in, have the chance to nab the freebie when it's been here longer than a week (or so)
 Now, this was a hidden freebie some time ago. It wasn't on long because....(probably too much wine,)  there was a hugh mistake... no one actually noticed but, I put the clouds behind the sun...hmmm (or the Sun in front of the clouds) either way....big mistake! So...here's Out in the country again, with a few changes!
No sharring, no downloading on to shared sites (even if there is a button to do so!) just save to your computer!!  GO HERE to download! A comment would be lovely!! Thank you for stopping by!

Koko The Koala: Card by Christina!

Christina (aka  hoptownracer1) has made a fab card using one of my digi's 'Koko The Koala' and seeing I've once again, not been around to blog or make cards or do anything apart from walk 'Dogs', I thought I would show case it here! I love the fix it papers!

Ike's been busy again!

I know you've probably seen most of these before but I thought they were worth another look! I've been pretty rubbish at blogging for ages, so it's lovely to see Ike's been very busy making  fabulous cards with my digi's and making them look super cool too! Fantastic embossing in the back ground on this first card, with my little hedgie carrying a Christmas present on the front! Thank you Ike! Don't forget to choose your freebie digi's as a thank you!!

More Animal Magic over on Quirky Crafts...

Once again I've had no time to finish my Animal Magic card for the Quirky Craft Challenge, sooo... 'I've had a look out the back... and we're right out of parrots... got a slug!'
Okay....enough Monty Python! Here's a few cards using Bugaboo digi's (one of our lovely sponsors) which I've made over time... (when I seemed to have loads to spare!...time that is...)
 
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-IKouXSOYdD8/UoV5fdGldGI/AAAAAAAAbOs/-VlZb-ltt8Y/s400/Debs+card+1.jpg

Quirky Animal Magic Reminder!

Okay... this'll be quick! (depending on how fast you read it I suppose!) I'm balancing across dozens of Very Useful Boxes (from my x craft room) to try and reach my computer and any second now I might crash down between them all and land in a heap on the floor! 
We have dogs staying and if this happens they'll all think it's a great fun game and jump on me! Go on, try it. If you have a dog, fall on the ground and start rolling about... in seconds they'll be rolling all over you! Guaranteed!!
So? What else is happening? Well, after almost ten months, we have finally managed to fill in the cracks in my old craft room, get rid of the mouldy patches and paint two of the walls! Deep sigh. Still can't make up my mind if it's going to go back as a craftroom or turn back into a bedroom... perhaps I should put it to a Blogger Vote!?!
Anyway, here's my second card for the challenge I've started over on the Quirky Craft Challenge blog. A big 'Thank You' to Monica for starting the Quirky Crafts post off for me!! I forgot what day it was again... (if head...not suck on...lose it...hmmm.)
I've used the same digi as last week, from  Sweet Pea Stamps!   but this time I've used darker colours, (prompted by their fabulous picture)  using Promarkers and made it look a bit more like the witching hour of  Midnight.
This was the darkest blue I had, (or could find) I tried black, but didn't like it. I've used papers called Neighbourwood, half of them are already glittered. I love the animals in this paper stack, mostly Owls, deer and squirrels but there's also foxes, frogs and otters too, so I thought they went well with this image.
I've added loads of Gems and Stickles Glitter glue, as well as a cute little glass jar filled with Magic purple fairy dust! (ok, it's really very fine purple glitter! and can be used as a little cord necklace) There's Pisces fishes on the tiny label plus a fairy charm attached. I haven't added any sentiment yet, but do have one for when I send the card off...

Well, I think that's it... have to go take the mutts out now, it's pee and poop time (again!)

Just A Quirky Bit Late with Some Animal Magic!

Over at Quirky Crafts, my challenge has started! (Last Sunday - better late than never!) I have no craft room at all now so it's really hard to make anything. (plus dogs seem to be sleeping in the most awkward places! bathroon...hall... kitchen... my bed!) 
Anyway! The challenge is nice and easy, Animal Magic! So we want to see animals!! We have some fantastic Sponsors, Bugaboo, Sweet Pea Stamps!  and  Robyn's Fetish! Pop over and see some of the teams makes to get you going !
I've up graded my photos from the beginning of the week to my normal ones. (Found the camera and the daylight lamp, but the cooker is still the best place to take the photos)
The lovely image I've used is by Sweet Pea Stamps. There's Owls, a deer, a squirrel and a baby dragon!
All the papers (and the felt flowers) were freebies from a Crafting magazine, called Simply Adorable. (There's also some animals die cuts included) This was going to be a shaker card, but I have no idea where I've stored my 3D foam pads, so...it's not! The frame was cut from a very thick piece of card (from an old art pad) then covered with contrasting paper to the front.
I've coloured the image with Promarkers and used loads of stickles glitter, a couple of gems, some foam stick on lettering, felt flowers and some eye-lash wool
 I think that's it! Sorry for  being so late, but I really need a few more hours in the day... off to walk more dogs, feed cats and rabbits and take my mum her shopping... (I'll miss breakfast, it's overrated anyway!!)  Don't forget to come and join in my Quirky Animal magic challenge!  I've also added an oldie but goodie Wizard with his owl, from Bugaboo. Thank you for stopping by. My Wednesday Freebie coming up next!!
Challenges (Hopefully!)

Oops...I'm a bit late. Never mind, here's a hopping bunny for you. (Carrot-Top Bunny Hop) The idea came from one of the dog toys I have or did have...It was, I say was, because after Tommy finished with it, it had no ears, no nose, one foot missing and no bottom! But started life wearing an orange hoody with a green fringy bit, giving it a look of a rabbit wearing a carrot... Yes, well, Tommy liked it!! Remember! No sharing anywhere.
