Pencil mania

Isn't it funny, no matter how old you get you always favor the newest thing you've brought. In this case it's the Derwent Inktense Pencils I brought, wasn't content with just using them on the architecture card in my last post, I've gone mad & made these two for starters....

one for the men

I've been having loads of fun this week (must have something to do with being on holiday this week, Lol) made a load of cards, which I hope to up load over the coming days. Had a stash of goodies arrive from Graphicus & the States today, plus I brought a set of those fab Derwent Inktense after seeing them on Create & Craft, but knew as usual I could find them cheaper elsewhere.
Well the card I've popped up today is a great card I think for a man. Not that this was the kind of card I sat down to make, I just wanted to have a play with the yummy Inktense pencils :o)

A birdie told me....

Not a lot as it happens, lol, but I did manage to get him on to my card.... for any concerned people out there no cruel act took place.....honest.

I do love Glenda's stamps & yet again I've used them in this card, (apart from the birds in the sky, they came from cherrypie stamps. You can find the link for both websites down the left hand side under ' Web shops I like to visit') which really reminds me of those wonderful warm sunny days we get in summer, with the birds chirping away.....I can just here them now

Meeko's portrait

I won an auction on a forum run for rescued animals. ( The auction was for a portrait done of your pet & the likeness from Meeko's photo is fantastic, it's been done in pastel which is what the lady Loraine uses in all her portraits. I've now framed it & it will be hung on the wall tomorrow

Pages for the handbag

I've been busy making a start on the pages for the chipboard handbag (pic of which can be found under the heading 'work in progress') With the page titled Fab I decided to turn everything on it's head kind of speaking & flip it round. Instead of doing the backround then stamping the images I used Cosmic Shimmer UT to make the background & then stamp the cheeky little fellow in white & the tree in green in to the still hot powder.... it was fun & turned out well me thinks

White out

Here are a few pic's of Meeko & Milo having so much fun playing in the snow earlier today. The white stuff didn't start falling round these parts until 2pm, before then I think we where the only part of the UK without snow.

Work in progress

I've had this delightful chipboard bag hanging around my room for sometime, I brought it last year in a sale because of the great price & it was cute, I felt it could look so fab when done.Well here I am making a start on it.... hope it's looking good. I used Glimmer mists over the top of white acrylic paint on both the inside & out side, the yummy chipboard flower was embossed with Cosmic shimmer UT.
