Hi me again,lol another challenge for you 
this one is for 
and the theme is 
modern Christmas colours

isnt she adorable!
i have to confess i have used a lot of these images for my cards this year i love them so much.
anyway as you can see she was printed coloured with the Spectrum noir pens and pencils then fussy cut.i mat and laered some lovely papers and some fancy shapes, cut a sentiment on the Craft robo, which i assembled and then glazed, to finish it off i printed and cut a lovely little tag and added a pretty pink bow.

the inside is simply a matchign backing paper layer and Robo cut Sentiment

hope you lik eit guys 
come on over and play along with the challenge 
hugs x




guy everyone, 
its time for a new challenge at

and what other theme at this time of year but 
Christmas

well i thought id give it a little twist lol


you know me by now guys not quite normal lol

i just adore this little lady from That craft Place Etsy store
betsy boots , Witchy poo

she has been printed out on the fab super smooth card from That craft Place, this card is a dream to colour on, once she was coloured with the Spectrum noir pens i went over adding depth with the Spectrum noir pencils.
next i cut out some tiny christmas baubles on my Craft Robo, coloured them (i tend to cut everything in white and then colour to match the project) i printed the cat and cauldron, and fussy cut, then cut some candy canes on the Robo, once they are all cut coloured ans the canes assembled, oh and mustnt forget the holly! everything was covered in TTriplethick gloss glaze,( also available form lisa).
then it was just a matter of finding some lovely papers to go with the image matt and layer and once the embellishments had dried i just had to add them to the card.


the inside is just mat with a piece of matching backing paper and then a sentiment cut on the robo.

i hope you like it and come join us in the challenge, maybe you can put a little spin on the christmas theme too 
hugs x

hey guys
well i said i would show you a the things iv been working on, or should i say playing at lol
a friend of mine gave me the idea for this one, so i made her one.
now i know nothing of harry potter having never seen or read any of the films or books so this was all done from pics on google. everything is made from paper, clay or cardboard.


this is the finished cabinet 



on the top shelf we have harrys letter of acceptance, some spell bottles, a map ( dont tknow the name of it) and a book,.these both open and are tiny replicas so as exact as i could get them.


on the middle shelf we have a history of magic book, a wand, a snitch, 
and some scrolls (which do open)


on the bottom is a spell cauldron and more scrolls 
&
monster book of monsters



sitting on top is a finding hat, and a dobbie? i have to say my sculpting leaves a lot to be desired but i did kind of fall in love with this odd little guy even if he is ugly lol .


then we have hedwig, this poor guy was finished and sat drying on the window ledge and my cat took a dislike to him! and i had to do a bit of a rescue on him....


and of course we had to have his broomstick.

the cabinet itself is made from cardboard saved from deliveries, accetat and the hinges are from tim holts grungboard, the keyhole i cut on my craft robo a few times and layered then it was all painted 
in acrylic paint, and finished with a couple of coats of varnish.

i hope you like it guys i had a lot of fun playing with this .

Hello my lovelies
well i am here today to tell you about the new
That Craft Place challenge

theme 
Anything goes

sponsored by 
All Dressed Up

here's mine



this little girl is so cute dont you think, im practicing a lot with my colouring, and loving it, still loads to learn and improve on but its so relaxing to just lose yourself in a  couple of hrs colouring, ( i just cannot get the hang of leaving white bits though !)

So it a simple mat and layer and the image topper which I coloured using spectrum noir pens and then the pencils on top, the pencils really do add depth and vibrant colour.
I added some of the fabulous flowers and a bit of bling both available from That Craft Place .

Now just a little side note to apologize for neglecting my blog somewhat of late, I had kind of lost confidence in my craft, iv given myself a bit of a talking to and as you can see I had a little play and changed my blog a little , made myself a new banner (quite pleased with myself).
So anyway iv been playing and have made a couple of things just for fun which I will share with you all over the next couple of days.

Now come on and get your entries in :)

Hi guys
Well its my absolute favourite time of the year and my all tome favourite day is fast approaching and the theme for this fortnight challenge on the
That Craft Place challenge blog
So as you can imagine I had loads of fun with this one



I started with a cardboard circle cut out the centre and reinforced it with some paper Mache, then painted it black.
I then wrapped it in Halloween tinsel.
The next step was to make some clay witches hats ,pumpkins and spiders
once dry painted and varnished them.


I put the gorgeous wide printed Halloween ribbon across the middle and then added the clay bits with hot glue, added another Halloween ribbon to hang it and there you have it.
So easy and fun to make, all the ribbons , clay and paints can be got from Lisa at
That Craft Place.
