Good evening peeps hope you all wrapped up & toasty warm cus its blooming freezing oot there tonight brrrrr.
For the last 2-3 weeks cus I've not been too good with my health (I have kidney & bowel probs I'm in hospital for yukky tests next month....yukkkk) anyway hubby doesnt like me crafting in my hobbit when I'm not well he prefers me to clog up the living room & kitchen & be close to the family....aint he sweet!! The problem with this is while I enjoy being closer to the family my mojo does tend to struggle at time cus of limited space & not having all my goodies to hand......you get too used to a good thing really lol. Anyway I have took all of my craft stuff into my hobbit today to let our home breathe a big sigh of relief......it really does take over everywhere craft stuff does!!!! When I was dumping all my stuff I have decided to have a move around & reorganise things better.......hubby says I'm like Monica off Friends cus I like everything organised & in its own place with a name on everything.......if I can put a label on it I will.....there is even 1 on me lol....its my tattoo lol. I've been on all day but tonight I've took a well deserved break to make a card. There are a couple of challenges this was particularly made for.....Create 4 Fun has a sketch & KK's challenge is 2x2. So I've gone off the sketch & apart from the image it is all 2x2.....
Meet this lubbly-jubbly-cuddly-santy isn't he just adorable!!! Of course he is from none other than KK Downloads I love their images they are soooo easy to colour, I cant wait for the new 1s to be released I've been over & brought the crimbo 1s.....on hubby's orders of course! I have made a circle easel card because the sketch is based on a circle card & as KK is 2x2 I thought well lets make it 2 layers, top & bottom.
The 2x2 list is as follows........
2 of each colour flower
2 gold pearls
2 nestie shapes in 2 different colours.
The paper is My Minds Eye 'Holly Jolly' & its available at Crafty Emma's Store the sentiment came with the papers..... All the papers have been distressed & then heat embossed with white embossing powder to give the effect of snow tipped.....if that made sense lol. The 2 large brown curly mulberry flowers are also from Emma's Store.
Santie has been coloured with Promarkers & Prismacolor pencil blended with Sansador. The deep red & cream roses are from Wild Orchid & all the flowers have had Stardust Stickles added to them. Also Santa's fur on his coat & hat has had stickles added but it was hard to capture. The nestie's are my latest new 1s from Craft Obsessions & the beige/goldy coloured card is from Papermill Direct, I have just put in another order with them cus they had knocked a tenner off their box of card, I dont actually need any but it was a sale & I cant just turn my nose up at a sale.........I mean how totally rude...they had even sent me an e-mail telling me about the sale so I HAD TO oblige!!!!
Right now I have a new release image for you.........
This is 'Ronnie Says Cheers' & is only available here. The fabulous Sally-Ann from Digi Stamp Boutique very kindly donated this image to Emma to raise money in memory of her very dear dad who was tragically killed last September at work. The image costs just 1.50 & ALL proceeds go to Yorkshire Air Ambulance our unsung hero's in the sky who do a fantastic job every single day saving the lives of thousands of people but who soley rely on charitable contributions......PLEASE pop on over to Emma's & help to keep our hero's in the sky!!! Also pop over to Emma's blog she has some fabby-scrummy candy on offer, pic is on the side with the link.
Well I think thats it from me I'm in my hobbit tomorrow reorganising all of my stamps so you may not see me for a few days lol. I have organised my embossing folders & created a little something to make choosing what I want a little easier.......I will post a piccy tomorrow.......altho knowing my luck half of you prob already use this way to do yours, I do tend to be the last 1 catch on to things lmao.
Anyway thanks for stopping by & leaving your fabalicious comments. I am having a nightmare with Mr Blogger at the min I cant seem to follow any1 & its taking soooo long to load people's blogs up, I am on doing my rounds of commenting its just the journey is taking a wee little while longer.....
Goodnight all sweet dreams & take care & do bundle up its gonna get nippy.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
