Flora and Freddie

Here is Flora again with her other half - Freddie, - Debs designs from Crafty templates ( link is in right hand bar) :) :) I think they make a wonderful pair - don't you, lol. :) :) What do you all think??? :) :)

I made a huge mistake by trying to draw in Flora's eyelashes, lol looks like she is wearing extra long false eyelashes. They say mistakes are happy accidents, lol, lol, not when you make the mistake at the very end of your project and cannot disguise it..lol. But Freddie loves her eyelashes - she flutters them at him and then he is putty in her hands, lol, lol. :) :)





I used Kay & Co papers, coloursoft pencils, flower, bling, ribbon and of course my fav doodling. :) :)

Here is Seemore and Cloudia card - such a versatile image it could be used for various occasions.
I have used BG paper, crepe paper, stickers, brad and hearts from stash, coloursoft pencils and my doodling. ;) :)


Here is another card I have made using Cloudia and Sonny. :) :) I have made this as a Congrats Baby Boy card. :) :) BUT I am only showing you half of the card, lol, lol. Why? I hear you ask...... well the on the other half of this card I have used another stamp I have coming out with Spiral Whisper in week 3 :) :) So watch out for previews of it. :) :) This card also fits in beautifully with DCM challenge - 'doodling', which is great because it has been a long time since I have been able to join in on their challengs. ;) :)
I have used Kay & Co paper, coloursoft pencils/gel pens, brads, ribbon and acrylic stone from stash and yes of course my doodling. :) :)


xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Now over at This Thursday's challenge blog the challenge this week is - All Change! So for this challenge I have used a drinking glass that has gone a tad cloudy after so many washes in the dishwasher - you know how they go, lol. Well, rather than just throw it out - I thought what can I do with it??? Came up with this idea.........

Used alcohol inks to give it a bit of a key, painted it all over with red acrylic paint and whilst the paint was still wet sprinkled fine glitter allover. When the paint has dried removed excess glitter. Now I am using it as a vase and I am very happy with the result. :) :)

Here it is in full view with some gorgeous pink lillies in. :)


Here is a close-up view of it. :)


Thanks for looking and all your wonderful support. :) :)

Gerry Family...

Previews are now showing of my Gerry Family - Seemore, Cloudia and Sonny on Spiral Whisper blog. It is a set of Giraffes - daddy called Seemore (because he is tall and can see more!, lol), mummy called Cloudia (because she is tall and elegant with her head in the clouds, lol) and babe called Sonny (because it is happy and bright like the sun, but spelled the name sonny just to be a wee bit different, lol). Really hope you all like them. :) I have 3 samples made up this evening but haven't any pics yet - so will post up as soon as I get decent pics. :) :)
