Altered CD

Here is an altered cd that I have done for a swap over at PCJ. I used paperbag studios stamp (my all time favourite) I used second generation stamping to try and achieve a faint look, I used BG papers and my trusty crop-o-dile with ribbon threaded through and a pink flower and preety brad to finish. :) :)





Thanks for looking. :) :)

A Couple of Challenges

I've done over at Charmed. :) The first one is a card using Karen's sketch - here is my take on it.. the motifs on the front are actually cut from old t-shirts, lol. And the beautifully hand painted buttons are from Marlou's shop - you'll find her button on the right hand side bar, she has a lovely selection of stuff there.:) :)



The second challenge was to make a Memories Wall Hanger but not to use people pets, bling or pink. Extra points were awarded if you used acrylic paints. It was set by the lovely Sarah

My wonderful, exciting, brilliant, fantastic news (can you tell I am excited, lol)is that I have images that I have drawn and the lovely Leo from Crafty templates has them on her site available to buy. They are all aptly called 'Debs Designs'. You can print, resize and colour them and make some fabby cards. All this should be available from tomorrow from www.craftytemplates.co.uk ( there is a button top right and if you click it, it will take you straight there).

I have huge thanks to a few people who encouraged me to do this and the one who pestered me most, lol, lol... is my wonderful friend Marlou - thank you all and special thanks to Marlou. :) :)

Here is one card I have made up as a sample to show all my lovely blogging pals....

Sneak Peeks Revealed....

Well, here are the card that I showed you sneak peeks for a little while ago. I made on my guest design spot for Crafty Templates. The kit is called Action and Adventure and is available to buy now from the crafty template site. The kit I must say was soo easy to use and the contents are fabulous. As the name suggests - it's a man's themed kit, for all those special men in your life (don't forget father's day). Go have a peek at the kit - it really is worth having. :) :)
Now I know it is a man's kit but I managed to sneak in a couple of girly ones, LOL, LOL.

Thanks for looking and being sooo patient with me. :)























Here is the same boot I made 'girly' - I love my 'bovver' boots. LOL, LOL.







The second cat is a bit shy, lol, and is not ready to come out of the bag yet - I'm working on it, LOL, LOL - but soooon I hope. :) :)
