Cats or Dogs

Cats or Dogs - I can't decide, eeek!

However, today I have gone with dogs which fits perfectly with this weeks challenge at Wicked Wednesday, and our sponsor is Sami Stamps.

I love these dogs, relaxing in the sun after playing 
(at least, that's the scenario in my head, anyway LOL).

I printed them three times so that I could layer them.  Each was coloured the same way using Prismacolor pencils.  The background is a snippet of cloud paper, the sun is a stamp and the foreground is washi tape.

Please pop over to Sami Stamps and have a look at all the gorgeous images.

As the team at Wicked Wednesday are taking a well deserved break, you have until 31st January to add your entry to this challenge.

D is for Deer Family

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas
and what better present, then a family portrait.

The Deer Family

This week at Wicked Wednesday, the theme is
"Things that start with the letter 'D' "
and our sponsor is

They all look a bit stunned, but perhaps it was just the flash from the camera going off? LOL!

I found a snippet of paper for the background and some wood grain paper which was perfect to make into a frame.  The little Deer family were each coloured, fussy cut and popped onto dimensionals.

Please go and browse all the goodies at Miezo and
join in the fun at Wicked Wednesday this week and you never know,
you could be a lucky winner!

Winter Hats or Accessories

Winter Hats or Accessories?
Really?  Hmmm ..... not in my neck of the woods - just sayin'.

However, at Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge this week,
it is definitely winter!
Our sponsor this week is Miss Rach so please pop over 
and have a look at all the gorgeous digi stamps on offer.

I really like this flamingo, although I'm thinking he is an arctic cousin to the usual pink variety, hehehe!

I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut him and popped him onto dimensionals.

Please join in the fun at Wicked Wednesday

Danger, Top Secret

"Science Geeks" is the theme this week at Wicked Wednesday 
and we are sponsored by Polka Doodles

As I couldn't decide which image I liked most, I chose to do two.
Which one do you prefer?

They were both coloured with Prismacolor pencils which when needed, blend beautifully.

Washi tape makes grounding an image so easy.

The words are stencilled on using 'pumice stone' Distress Ink.

Thank you for visiting.
Please pop over to Polka Doodles and have a look at all the delightful images on offer.

Birthday Quilt

Birthdays always last for at least a week if not more,
so when I caught up with the birthday girl, 
not only did she receive a gift, but another card too!

Card front with belly band removed
This is a Twist & Pop Card which has a surprise mechanism inside.
Inside of opened card
As you close the card, the four panels concertina to close up neatly inside.
Close up of first two panels
The images on this card are watercoloured using Distress Inks in various colours.
Close up of last two panels
This is a fun card to construct and is easy to decorate.
Flannel knee quilt
And this is the gift I gave her, a cosy flannel quilt.
Although I chose the fabric, my BFF is a wiz with a needle and thread
and she kindly made the quilt for me - isn't it gorgeous?
