My Lovely Friends

Monday, 7 February 2011

Look at me I've learnt something new.....yayyyyhayyyyy.....

Edited To Add; I totally forgot to post this on my own blog DOH!! So excuse it saying good morning unless you feel like another Monday then we could pretend he hee.....but I'm thinking you dont want to do that one lol.
Well good morning peeps its Vicky here....are you feeling bright eyed & bushy tailed after a nice restful weekend? No......neither am I I had an eventful 1 to say the least, well you know that Tracey Payne well it all started when she passed her 'Bad Luck' onto me.....yes thats right she did you know. My pipe burst on my radiator saturday morning in the passage way, now remember I have a disabled daughter so its a big bungalow I live in.......well everywhere in the passage was flooded....its now been fixed of course. The only thing is I have wooden flooring all the way thru & we laid it just after the bungalow was built before we moved we did it all the way through with no joins at the door ways so it would be easier with the wheelchair.... Unfortunately the water has seeped everywhere so far it could be the whole of the bungalow that needs re-doing.....cus they dont do the same flooring anymore arrrgggghhhh!!!!! Think I will be calling mr insurance Tracey just for you sweetie you can now have a chuckle lol.
Anyway today Teresa will be announcing when the new stamps on being released in store unless that is you were lucky enough to go the show......sadly I wasn't :0( so keep checking the store today.
Today I have learnt something new.....dont you love learning new things. I love digi images & I mean love them they are just soooo versatile in so many ways. Well I thought I would combine 2 digi images together to form a scene. I brought an image from here to go with the image I already had from here & went along to the fabulously talented Vix & followed her tutorial on how to do it.....let me tell you if I can follow it anyone can, I'm not the brightest quid in the shopping trolley!!!
Here is the beautiful 'Dusk' from Crafts & Me.

This is the close-up

Of course its an easel card which is just my fave type of card. This is the inside which I decorated & theres room to write your message

The image was coloured with Copics & Promarkers. The sky I did with chalks but it doesn't show up too good on this piccy I'm afraid.
The papers are Prima & you can get them & the flowers from here. The gorgeous crush ribbon you can get here.
Well thats it from me dont forget the 'Red' challenge we have running over here.
Hope you have liked my card peeps.
P.S. For the messages & e-mails about my stamp collection I'm glad I didnt show all of them but can I just say I would love to share & let peeps borrow them if I lived close to any of you as I dont know anyone who crafts who lives near me.....awwww isnt that sad lol. Hubby has spoilt me since I started this but there is a reason. I have NEVER had a hobby when people have wanted to buy me things I wouold always ask for things for the home or money which I could then spend on Craig & the kids lol. I got excited when I got new washer or hoover for crimbo or a new microwave nan said it would insult most women.....I loved it. Anyway this has gone on for over 20 years so last year towards the end of march when I found out about Promarkers & stamps.....well hubby was overjoyed as it meant finally he could buy things for me & that now I could have time for me instead of running around after everyone else......I enjoyed doing that I still do but I now have something for me. I just have the sweetest hubby lol & I am extremely lucky. I'm enjoying it while it lasts pmsl.....only joking..... but thats why I have sooo much in sooo little time & cus of that I think its nice if I share it sometimes with all my fabby blogging friends cus you all rock!!!!
Take care & enjoy the rest of your will soon be the weekend lol.
Tatty Bye peeps, huggles

Janine - Ellabella said...

Absolutely fabulous Vicky!!! Your colouring is out of this world and the layout and use of the papers is fantastic. Terrific creation!!!

Julye said...

I so know what you mean about best laid plans, we too have wood floor and upstairs no joins to make it easier for my son who is also mobility challenged due to cerebral palsy, and when we had a burst in the kitchen cieling it was a nightmare as to get to the pipes we had to go from upstairs so it all had to be taken up and of course I'd laid it length ways so had to take up several rooms , man it was like one huge jigsaw, I ended up writing numbers on every piece, so really don't envy you and hope mr insurance is understanding.

Rach said...

oh hun what a nightmare about your flooring.. :(

I love your card babe, so pretty and beautifully coloured. love the fold in her dress, I always have problems with folds .
Well done on learning to combine two or more images.. you have chosen two very complimentry images that work brilliantly together..
hope that your week improves babe.. hugs RAch xx

Hi hunni. I hope you will not have to wait long for your flooring to be sorted out. Your card is gorgeous once again. I adore your image and colouring and your papers are to die for.


cardmaking bird said...

Oh no!! Sooooooo sorry to hear about your flood - it must be a nightmare with the flooring all run on. I'm pleased to see that you've dealt with it with your usual wonderful attitude! You really are an inspiration.
Wonderful card btw - I'll definitely be looking up that tutorial cos I've never been able to work out how to combine images.
That's hilarious that you ask for things for the home - if anyone ever buys my mum anything like that she goes mad and says it's not a present for her, it's for everyone cos she's not the only one that lives there, but since I've lived in my flat, I've often asked for curtains, carpet, etc - but then it's only me and my son.
I wished I lived closer to you - I haven't got any crafty friends nearby either, which is probably why I love all my blogland crafty buddies so much!!
Hugs, Marie xxx

cebelica said...

Fab card hun! I love the image and your coloring is perfect. I really like how you decorated the inside of the card as well. Great job!

I'm sorry to hear about the flood. :( I hope everything will get sorted out in no time!

Awww, I wish I lived closer to you! I don't have anybody who would do crafting near me either. :( I often wish I could gather some of my crafting pals (mind you, they/you are from all over the world, so that's not really a chance, unfortunately) and we'd have a fun crafting weekend party. Wouldn't that be great?! I am allowed to dream, right? ;)

I wish you a fab day!

Poppet said...
