Moved

Hi all,

Well we are finally in our new house. We still have a lot of unpacking to do though.
All my crafty bits are still in boxes. So I haven't been crafting/ making anything for a while.
I am getting huge withdrawal symptoms. Sigh !

Also Facebook is being a pain. I can't log on as apparently I am not me? So I've had to give proof to show I am me but I still can't get on. So I apologise to any of the DT's I am on as I've not been able to keep you updated/ get in touch. My husband can't even post anything on my status either, so it's very frustrating.

I'm hoping to have all my bits in and unpacked by Christmas at the latest but we will see.
Hopefully I'll be back on Facebook soon.

Hugs
Kelly

Scrappers Delights Challenge

Hi all,

Today is my first time posting as part of the Challenge Design Team at Scrappers Delights.

The theme for this challenge is decoupage.
I decided to use one of the pre-coloured images that is a part of this set. 
You can find her here.
So onto my card.


Decoupage is not something I like I do but I enjoyed figuring out what to layer.
I layered her hat, the hat band, the dress ( including the hand muff) 
and then the coat (including the hand muff).
It was easy to cut.
It turned out pretty well.

I hope to see you at the challenge.

Creations

Hi all,

This is going to be an extra long post as I've got a couple of things to share with you.

Firstly I've decided to have ago at mixed media. So I'm going to share with you my very first picture.
I used a cheap watercolour paper pad.
I watercoloured it in yellow and went over half in blue. I then doodled. I drew the flowers, leaves and  borders.
I used my galaxy markers which were great.
I hope you like it.


I'm not too keen on the flower on the left, but not bad for a first go.

Secondly it's the start of the new challenge at Just Inspirational Challenges.

This week we are sponsored by Kenny K and the winner will receive 3 digis.


As always we have a inspirational picture. You could use the colour or decide to put metal embellishments on you creation.


I decided to use the colour grey for my card.


I used the neutrals, warm and cool copic greys to colour this in.

I hope you like both my creations today.
Thanks Sheila for having me at She's a Sassy Lady.

Friday Sketch Challenge

Hi all,
I've had a couple of busy weeks. 
Our friends got married last weekend. Hubby was Bestman. 
Bride looked gorgeous and it was a fab weekend.
School started back so I'm getting to know the new children.
My son won Best Improved Player for under 11's Cricket. 
Pretty good as he's only 8.
Cricket has taken over our lives since May , with three matches a week plus training 
and that's just my son.
  I'm a little glad the seasons over now as my Hubby also plays.
So I'll be glad to get back into normal posting and crafting.

Well that's enough about that, let's get back to crafting.

The latest Challenge at Friday Sketch Challenge has started

We are currently running a DT call, to see the details just click right HERE.
