Showcase.... SNOWY

Good morning to you all. Ooops I am running late this week, so much going on where do the hours go. I hope none of you were badly hit by the rain and floods over the last 2 days. As you may all know I am off on holiday Friday just for a week so there will be no Showcase next week.

This week it is......... SNOWY 

My Guest DT again this week is the very talented

Unfortunately Tina`s card is a bit late as she did the wrong image for this week lol,   she has been very busy and also had the hospital yesterday afternoon. I will upload when I receive it. Hope everything went ok Tina.
And finally as always MY CARD
For this I have used...
 6 x 6 white scallop card, backing paper from stash.
Tree stamps from Creative Expressions. My Snowy digi,  frame from template and cut out added snow from Sheena Douglas-A little bit scenic and embossed with white embossing powder-Debbie Moore. Image coloured with Promarkers. Gems, sentiment and snowman again from stash, then added touches of fluffy stuff.

I think you have to agree with me the girls have done a FABULOUS job with my digi.

What a wonderful way to be sent off on holiday. Enjoy your week off too girls.
See you all soon :O))

New Week, New Showcase...........

Good morning everybody, first of all I would like to apologise for not being about and visiting your blogs. Life has been a bit hectic at the moment with one thing and another. And for this reason we decided to book a last minute holiday yeahhh. We have not had one at all this year, do to hubby being not very well at all and it did get a bit scarey at one point, with him having a biopsy at one point and at that time the results would not have been through in time for the holiday we did have booked ( which we would have been on now) so we cancelled and thankfully he got the all clear. We will be flying out to more sunny climes on the 28th. This is where we are staying :O).
This week the girls have had my Mask digi to play with.
My Guest DT this week is.......
The very talented   Emma Oliver

And finally my card
5 x 5 white card, layers red backing from hunkydory, the top layer I made in MCS. Feathers from stash. Image printed out and coloured with promarkers. I hope it does not show but this was made in a rush do to chasing about and getting everything for the holiday as I hate doing everything at the last minute
your creations are absolutely Fabulous.
I hope you all agree with me and you will take the time to visit their blogs and leave well deserved comments. Next week we get onto Christmas, which one..... well you will have to wait and see :O). Thank you for popping by and I appreciate each comment you leave

Showcase 19..........

Hi everybody,  the Showcase is........... Westie 

this week the girls have been playing again and they have come up with such fabulous cards, when you look at them I hope and know that you will agree.

As we do not have a GDT this week I think I will go first, but make sure you look at all the girls cards too and pop over to their blogs and leave a comment as I know they would really appreciate it.

My Card Westie sun bathing

6 x 6 scalloped square card.The garden scene came from MCS Countryside Garden,
 I added a couple of butterflies, ladybird and dragonfly to the scene then used the vignette effect to add a border and colour and printed. I cropped the picture and added the Westie which  I printed and used a template to cut out the oval shape, coloured the Westie with promarkers, cut this out by hand them added foam pads to mount over the main scene, and to finish off added card candi in the corners.





What wonderful variety of designs this week.

THANK YOU LINDSAY, TINA, JANET AND GILL for all your hard work.
Please show your appreciation to the girls and visit their blogs.

Thank you.......

Good morning, and welcome to my new followers and thank you.

 I cannot believe that just about 6 months ago I only had about 90 followers and thanks to you all I now have 257 woo hoo, I am a happy bunny.

I had quite an exciting weekend as we have just booked a week`s holiday in Menorca for the end of Sept, just 17 days to go then we will be relaxing by the pool yeahhh.

When we bought our new car just over a week ago I made this quick card as a Thank you to Trevor (NMG) who was so helpful, and he loved it.

The image is from MCS which I added the Sold sentiment before printing out then decoupaged it. The background was also made in MCS, then I just added the Thank you sentiment and card candi.
