Shabby, distressed, tattered or vintage......

...but I think any style suits Krista's super gorgeous images..

I coloured this image on one of my colouring playdates with Deb... aka Frecklesplace .

feeling a little Hedgie.......

Afternoon crafty peeps.....just popping in to share my little Hedgie....I have had to make a start on some of the male cards I have to do..... even after years amd years of crafting I still struggle with male cards....
This stamp came free off the Papercrafts Inspirations magazine this month...
this took me ages to do..... still not sure if it's the right colours for the country companions style..... but I've  looked at it for that long now I keep changing my mind......

Top Tip Tuesday - anything goes
Top Tip -  save your markers that are running out out to add subtle shading and highlights to  animals, fur, hair and backgrounds without over doing it.
Anything  Goes -  anything goes

well that's it for the moments folks....thank you so much for all the comments I have been recieving..... mwah!

Magnolia Kraft......

CAS......or too clean and simple, I am really not used to doing simple cards, I always think should I just add.......but this time I resisted,... and I used my Koh-i-nor pencils for a change, not sure it's exactly what I had in my head but I gave it a try.....

I've had this stamp for a while , she hasn't seen much ink so I thought I would give her a go on kraft card.....

Dream Valley Challenge -  anything goes
Cupcake crafts - something new ( a new style of card for me)

January blues

Hi everyone.....well it's just turned midnight here in the uk.... so I thought I would post this while the football is on...
I have no idea why I coloured this little cutie in blue, it just happened, I find this colour difficult to use along with yellow......but I am quite pleased with it..... and I did tell myself that I was going to try out some of the 'stuff' that I've had in my head for ages.... whether it wotks or not!
this is one of the gorgeously sweet images from Sugar Nellie........

I have used my promarkers again, and some more of my old papers.
I also managed to fit this into a challenge at 
Addicted to Stamps with their January blues challenge.....

thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments
