Some scrap pages :)

and a couple of challenges. Finally got a couple of pages done and am really happy with how they turned out. This first page is the first of many that will feature pics of one of my family on the old tractor. Seeing as we took about 300 photos between us, there are definitely going to be more. I love this picture of Jord.

My nephew Sam and a few of his 'tractor'pics.

My entry in this weeks Simon Says challenge. Criteria was to make a tent card and us a charm. I glued the charm to her hand so she's holding a bunch of flowers.

How cute is the pirate Tilda!!

This card is for the Bizzy Becs competition. Criteria for this is to have purchased something from Bec this month, and use bling.
I had an extra day off this weekend and still didn't get everything done that I wanted to. Perhaps I should have got up early this morning instead of stayin in bed reading til 10.30.

An afternoon of colouring and cards

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend and a spoilt mothers day. This is what I spent my afternoon doing

These first 3 cards are using images fromBugaboo Stamps. Here's a couple of cards using 2 of the Skelekinz images.

This one is for the catch the bug challenge blog. The criteria for this challenge was to use flowers.

These next ones are Tiddly Inks images. I have coloured another one of the Gothic images in but ran out of time. Maybe during the week.

I have some of this stuff and would love some hints on how to use it. What tool do you use to apply it or do you just use a paint brush.
Very happy to have some of my cards on the Victoria Case blog :) I have a couple more Victoria Case images all coloured and ready to go, will try to get these on some cards this week too.

Loving digi stamps

Love the instant gratification with buying a digi stamp. I've got some really gorgeous ones to try and ink up this weekend. Here's the first couple.

This one is Catgirl from Tiddly Inks, she's one of the Gothic images. I love all the Gothic ones and had to get them all :)

This next card I've done for this weeks challenge at Oh,Alice! I've just made it in time but I had today off so this card was part of my plans. It's a Mo's digi and the challenge at Oh,Alice! this week was to make something for a child. I had trouble getting the colours right in my pic and didn't want to muck about too much cause the Stickles was still wet, so I've put a close up here that came out better.

My Copic E00 ran out today. Was majorly pee'd, it's my main skin colour. I've only used it to colour about 14 images and it's already dry as. Lid has been securely on and stored the same as all the other colors. Am hoping with them being $10.50 a pen that they would last longer than that. Am also having trouble with my E53. When I used it on images I've printed from the printer, my image gets a red tinge, like the black ink is bleeding. It doesn't happen with any of the other colours, just this one. Weird!!!!

Tiddly Inks Challenge

On a roll now!!

Thought I'd try a challenge cause I haven't done one in ages.

Found these cute digis when I was wandering around the net today. I've got a Tiddly Inks stamp but it's rubber and I got it from Bella. I'm not sure if it's the same company or not. If anyone knows can you leave me a comment - just curious :)
I see I've left a nice thumbprint on the acetate.

A new addiction

So it's been a long time, hey!!

I've been wanting to update for ages but haven't had any mojo for what seems like forever. Over the past couple of weeks, I've had about 20 people ask me what's going on with my blog. So I am going to try and keep it updated more often.

Mojos been missing for about 5 months now and no matter what I've been trying it just doesn't want to come back. I've got a pile of pages that I've started on only to have them go to the 'I need to think about it'pile.

I have managed to complete two of my Bakers Dozen calico pages. I can't show them completely but I have posted some sneaky peakies of them on the Bakers Dozen 2010 blog.

My new addiction...Copics. I've spent the past few weeks learning how to use these - thank you You Tube. I'm still struggling with them a little - I need to practice colouring in the lines :)

I've finally felt confident enough with the colouring to make some cards with them.

This is Sassy Alice and one of the images I've got from Sassy Studio Designs.

This one is from Mo's Digital Pencil.

The following few cards have images from Victoria Case, I so love some of the gorgeous lady stamps Victoria has. Just a warning though that I've put a cheeky sentiment on the last card and may be found a little offensive for some :)

......the inside

A couple with Greeting Farm stamps.

A frame with Jenni Bowlin butterflies that I made for a gift.

A few pics of a day at my dads. There's an old tractor up the back of his house and we thought it would be perfect for some pics. The first is myself and my brothers and sisters. The second

is my boy Jordan (and depending of what's taking his fancy on the day)
aka Jordo
aka JB
aka Jord
and now has decided he wants to be known as Jordie
