Hi everyone. Hope the world is treating you kindly.
I'm here with my DT make for The Crafter's Cafe. The theme this week is "Ribbon's and/or lace".
We have three sponsors this week:
Lot's of yumminess up for grabs!
I have used Victorian Winter Emily from Lacy Sunshine Stamps and she was so fun to colour. I've used my ever faithful Promarkers. The background is a scrap of paper I found on my desk (forever untidy!), layered onto a Kraft card which I've doodled on to look like a frame. The lace was a bargain find in our local craft shop, and the flower and cameo were bought off Ebay.
Now it's over to you....come join in the fun!

Good Morning Everyone!
Here again with my DT make for Crafting for all Seasons where the theme for the next fortnight is "For The Girls".....easy as pie!
Our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine and we got to chose an image to use! Now, my eyesight is not at it's best at the mo, and I chose Eleanor Shopping, not realising she had holly on her jumper. But with Heather's permission, I managed to sort that little problem out!
I have coloured her in with Promarkers and made a simple background up from dotty paper and mirri card. Flowers from my stash!
Now it's over to us your girly makes!

The image is Snow White by Krista Smith at Saturated Canary. Love Love Love her!!!
I've coloured her in with Promarkers, and I'm quite pleased with my efforts, for a change!
The papers are some freebies from a magazine, and I've added flowers and ribbons from my stash. The sentiment was printed on my PC.
Colours used:
Hair: Cool Greys 1-5
Skin: Coral, Oatmeal and Blush, with a little Pale Pink
Dress: Burgundy, Cardinal Red, Poppy, Dusky Pink, Midnight Blue, Denim Blue, Cool Aqua, Mustard Tulip , Buttercup and Primrose.

 Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well.
I'm here today with my last DT make for Rhedd and Rosies. I have come to the end of my term and am moving on to pastures new. So this is my special "Thank-you" for having me!
The theme for the next fortnight is "No White". I have used some gorgeous patterned papers from my stash, layered up on pink card. I've added a pink swirly die cut, and some spotty  butterflies. The sentiment stamp is also from my stash, it just seemed so apt for this card.
 The prize up for grabs is this:

So now it's over to you. Make anything you like but NO WHITE.

Hello everyone!
Here's my DT make for The Crafter's Cafe and the theme this week is "Bling It On"! We have three fabulous sponsors this week:

I have used Mister Monster Blowing Bubbles from Inky Impression, coloured in, as always, with Promarkers. I had my hubby in mind making this card, so had to keep it simple...he does like simple!
I've added blingy gems around the heart and a little Glossy Accents to the heart bubbles.
And now it's over to you....Bling It On!
We also have a DT call out!!! Please click on the link on the sidebar for details....and don't be scared! We're a lovely bunch!!!

Hi everyone. A little later than planned with this post and the card was a last minute one, and that has absolutely NOTHING to do with hangovers!!! Promise!
This is my DT make for The Crafter's Cafe and the theme this week is "Animal Friends". We are sponsored by Fitztown
I have used "Wild 7", an image I chose because it reminds me of our own doggy. I have only coloured in his eyes, I think that's all it needed. Simple background of neural shades on black card, on a blue base card which matches the beast's eyes!
Come along and join in the fun with your ANIMAL makes!

HAPPY NEW YEAR ONE AND ALL! Hope you are all well.
This is a scheduled post because I'm not sure I'll be on the planet when this goes live! Planning a good old bash with my big sis for New Year!
We're "Going Dotty" at Rhedd & Rosies this fortnight.....make anything dotty!
I have used an MDF door hanger and covered it with strips of dotty paper. I've wrapped it with some pink funky wool, and cut two hearts to which I've added dome stickers. I've layered up some dotty Prima flowers and added card candy to the centres. Lotsa dots!
Our sponsor is Crafty Hands and here's the prize up for grabs:
So now it's over to us your dots!
