Black n Blue

Evening all!  Having my own little private party here, headphones on full blast which is a rarity and listening to some old skool tracks on you tube, I've decided I've turned into my mother by saying they dont make em like they used to haha!  Remember The Source with Candi Staton You've got the love, Deee-lite Groove is in the heart and Evelyn Thomas Hi Energy, that kinda stuff :D  Nothing like the aggressive nonsense in the charts nowadays

Got another to share tonight, this one is Deevonne, sorry but blogger is refusing point blank to display the 2nd pic the right way grrr!  I've teamed the image up with the Crafts & Me monotone papers.  The card base and band across the centre is actually a beautiful shimmery deep blue and looks lovely behind the die cut in the centre.  She's coloured in promarkers :)  Dont you just love Hannah's digis and the hair as you can go really wild with the colours if you wish and nothing looks wrong :)

Well I'm off back to my bedroom disco but before I go I'd like to enter into...

Die cuts at Passion for Promarkers

Urrrrrgh what are you making of the new blogger??  I absolutely HATE it!!!  It wasnt broke so why "fix it" 
I cant even get on it on my fone anymore as my browser (Opera mini) isnt compatible or something.  I rely on that as I dont get on PC very often coz of the headaches and they're worse when I've been on pooter so I'm totally not impressed.

Anyway I'm running late again this week as I've had headaches from hell, throwing up, my house looked worse than Octomom's and I'm preppng for a promarker workshop so have a couple to share with you now and will be back later as have another in progress lol!  I'm like a bus me!  Will get back into my stride when these headaches pass, I get them every single spring and its related to low pressure and hayfever so with all the rain I'm sufferin!  Roll on summer!

Now how to work out how to insert a pic on this new fangled thing :?

This week over at Passion for Promarkers we want to see die cuts!  The lucky winner will receive their choice of 6 images from digistamp boutique :)

For this I had a play with the Letraset Limited Edition Promarkers spring set - Hurry up and grab them as production ceases when the summer set are out and thats imminent!
I coloured my favourite Hawaiian Flower Tilda in rainbow using them and piced out papers to match - the Tatty Teddy Spring papers match this set perfectly!  I've die cut the image out and added a die cut garden gate at the bottom and added some sparkle on the top of t with glamour dust.

Do hope you can join in the fun and sorry I'm so late posting up!  There is also a mini DT call on for Passion for Promarkers too so get your names down quick!

Next up is another Rainbow Hawaiian Tilda again using the Limited Edition spring set of promarkers.  This time I went over the dress n the blender pen to lighten it more than the one above.  I added some tapestry stamping around the edge with some sticky gems and pearls and coloured the butterflies at the top with brilliance inks.  Again using the tatty teddy papers as I love how they match the promarkers :)

Bows & Butterflies at Crafts & Me

Good Evevning all!  I'm back for now, missed me?  Been soooo rough lately so just been resting to work through it and on top have had OH ill, Ethan cut his head open in school and then Molly was sick all night so I hope everything has finally passed!  Been absolutely exhausted with it all :(

Back to business and tomorrow we're going on a 'real' train, ie a proper one not a steam train over to Liverpool Museum to go see the dinosaur exhibition that was a school trip a few weeks back but unfortunately Ethan had to miss it through illness so I'd said I'd take him so he doesn't miss out.  I think he's actually more excited about the train ride though lol!

We've been having a spring clean today so whilst the carpets were getting a wash I took them out to go buy some flowers for their pots.  I used to always have tons of flowers before the kids came along but things just get in the way sometimes and just not really got round to it at this house much so friday we've got lots of planting to do and then swimming in the afternoon.  I've no idea what theirs will turn out like as they wanted this that and the next thing so we've got the cheap and cheerfuls (Lobelias, fuschias, violas, petunias etc) that throw lots of flowers out for a long time and they'll be responsible for their own designs :) 
We got strawberries too, hope theyre a bit more successful than our single cherry tomato of last year haha!

Right-o its a new challenge over at Crafts and Me this week and Carol would like to see bows and butterflies.  There was a new release the other day of a fairy treehouse which I think looks absolutely splendid indeed and its got a lot of shading on to help you along so is so so easy to colour.  I teamed it up with one of the Forest Fairy digi papers we have and it just looks amazing.  I've added it onto a few of the papers in that set and it looks great with just those 2 as a lot of the papers already have fairy silhouettes in the background.
I reduced the size of the house to 25% then selected with magic wand and copied then pasted it on top of the papers.  If its in jpg form it will be white allowing you to colour in.

I also added some of the larger silhouette fairies we have in the shop just for good measure, these are Mushroom Fairy (to the left) Nature Fairy (Sat on the step) and For you Fairy (Walking down the trunk on right)

Do ope you can join in Carol's bows n butterflies challenge!
