A Cheeky Peek

I mentioned I was creating a pram blanket for my neighbours daughter.
Well it's not finished yet but I thought I'd give you a quick peek

It's coming along quite nicely and I shall reveal all hopefully the end of next week.
I hope that has engaged your interest.

Space and Beyond

Hello, we have a great little challenge for you over at The Male Room . For the next couple of weeks  the theme;

STAR TREK (or any other space series)

Why Star Trek? Well, it's because I'm a huge science-fiction fan and because the franchise is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year. I started watching the show as a kid in the 60s and I love it. I've just seen the latest Star Trek movie by JJ Abrams and highly recommend it. And because many guys really like sci-fi programmes.

You don't have to stick to Star Trek inspired ideas - and there are thousands from the various TV shows and movies - you can base your space series (science fiction) project on any series from Star Wars, Stingray, Dr Who, Twilight Zone, Stargate, Falling Skies, Six Million Dollar Man, Superman, Quantum Leap, Arrow - and this list goes on!! If your inspiration is not immediately clear, do tell us what show you've picked.

My choice is the best space series to have ever exist. And making cards for small people well.....
Soup Dragon, from the Clangers, the greatest souper hero ever
yeah yeah terrible sense of humour.....can't help it 

I have to confess that I am a big trekie at heart but I have the Clangers saved on my digi box. I'm hoping to crochet a clanger one day when I've got my other projects finished. 

Well, I have a baby blanket to finish (my neighbours will be 1st time grandparents next month).
I also have a couple of little owls that need stuffing so I can send them off into the geocahing world.

Please remember to leave comments on the design teams blogs

Fab'n'Funky in the great Outdoors

A very good morning to all,

I am hostess this week over at Fab'n'Funky challebges and I have a wonderful challenge for you.

Go Outside
 Yes, we want you to go outside and let nature inspire you creation
I have created a collage of my travel photos to help get you going.
(the waterfall shot was me attempting to locate a geocache to no avail, so I settled for a photo)
I hope it gives you some ideas

Our lovely sponsor this week is 
Lacy sunshine 

The prize is 3 digi images  

I had millions of ideas but nothing seemed right, then I remembered
I have several reading-mad friends and so I decided to make one of them a bookmark.
I've kept it simple, the book should always be more than the mark. She loves nature and mythical creatures so hopefully this will be a real hit.

Please remember to stop by all our lovely ladies blogs and leave them some love.

Back soon

Scottish Highlands

Hello from Scotland,
This is the beautiful Glen Affric, a peaceful and majestic landscape. It is a stones throw from the village of Cannich (our favourite place to retreat to). My trendy walking poles are a godsend, no way I'd have made it to this spot without them. Further down the glen is a spot called Kite Rock, where we were fortunate enough to see the golden eagles that were nesting over the hills. I wasn't able to get a good enough photo, I think I may have to consider a bigger lens.

A beautiful break

It took us quite a while to get up here but we made it. The highlands of Scotland are one of the few places I feel fully at home. I seem to be able to relax here, so although the journey up was painful and I had a large dose of codiene sulphate in my system, it was worth it.
(For those who don't know, I fell down the stairs a few weeks ago and have been unable to sit down for very long. I am due to have an MRI scan in two weeks.)
I have seen a Red Kite for the first time and we are fairly sure we saw the Golden eagles in Glen Affric. I tried to get a photo but I'm not sure how clear it is.
I will post photo's when I get a good signal.

Marbled mayhem

we have an exciting challenge over at The Male Room
"Use Shaving Foam"

Yes it might sound a little bizzare but we want you to use it. Please note you need shaving FOAM not gel, gel is too slimy (but quite interesting in it's own right, I'll share soon)

So here is my creation using shaving foam
It was great fun creating the marbled effect and not as messy as I expected it to be.

Check out the other design team memebrs creations and leave some love, it's always appreciated.

who are offering a great prize of 3 digis to our winner this week

Here is my little bit of inspiration, I've unusually used a pre-coloured digi stamp
 This is the Elf Queen. It was strange to use a pre-coloured stamp but you have to try something new now and again, don't you.
It was an interesting experience and I think I will invest in the uncoloured version.

Please remeber to check out our lovely design teams blogs and share a little love, it is always very appreciated.  

I'm also entering this lovley lady int the following challenges

Hello again all
we have a very interesting challenge for you over at The Male Room

Yes, sports is the name of the game. I happen to have a golf mad brother-in-law so my card is based on his passion. Plus it's his birthday very perfect timing

He's not much for fuss so I made a simple card.
The flag-pole is hand drawn using a white marker pen and the hole was done with my black fineline pen.

The stamp is from LOTV - Playing Golf. I used an array of promarkers to colour it. The green background is simply a bit of card from my stash (can't remember the name).

I made a little mistake, I had grabbed and stuck down the grey strips before I realised I had cut some sandy coloured strips. So unfortunately my bunkers are a bit bonkers.

Please visit all our lovely ladies at The Male Room and remember to leave them some good vibes.

Back soon with more to share
