Nearly Halloween

I have been playing with some new stuff I bought from TKMAX they have got a few crafts bits in & I went mad on Halloween Stuff god knows why I normally avoid doing it as it never seems to look right. So I bit the bullet & set to and this is what I made: the peel-off web, fencing & pumpkin are from Making Memories (I also got some of their stamps from TK as well)Tilda's I shrunk a little & coloured them with Promarkers and I added a little bit of Gold metal behind the pumpkin to make it look lit up.

Graces Birthday

Today is my Granddaughter's 5Th Birthday it's really unbelievable how grown up she is, Grace isn't having a party no instead it's a sleep over with 2 friends I mean I was about 45 before I had my sleepover & that was with about 20 kids at the youth club where I used to work haha. Grace is the little girl who loves to be a tom boy one day & all girly the next, she has got her Grandad just where she wants him when I told her she was spoilt when she told me what she got for her Birthday she said " No Nannie I'm not spoilt it's my Birthday" time flies by so quickly.
I have used Crafter's Companion girls CD for the Castle and backing paper, various peel-offs e.g Happy Birthday & 5, the image is from Charmed crafts from the Once upon a time Digi stamps, a little metal heart that says "Birthday Girl" & some flowers. Hope she likes it I know I do.
Happy Birthday Grace 5 Today

I have flattened the card so it is possible to see all sides

Week# 97 - Scrumptious Shelley - Fashion through the years

Morning everyone and a damp Autumny one it is too this weeks challenge has been set by our lovely Shelley & she has chosen Fashion Through the Ages & this is my contribution. I thought this lady looked really Elegant she is a Decoupage figure (I do like doing a bit of 3D), I wanted to add something to her fur to make it look realistic & normal glitter didn't buy it for me so I used a hairy glitter which has longer strands & I think it looks rather effective & the ladies I do cards with thought so too.

The Design team have been really busy with their Idea's why don't you drop by and see what everyone has been up to at OSCC it would be great to see you all.

I would also like to thank all the lovely people who have taken the time to leave all those lovely comments on previous blogging it is better than actually winning so Thank You everyone.

Gone Fishing

There are no photo's with this little blog just a little relaxation with the little one's but I wish I had taken a shot or two when Ewan was excited because we caught 5 or just because he got a blue net, Grace was happy because she was planning on a pink net all the way to Cleethorpes & this was our Game we was to capture just for a little while. Then to the Park.

Week# 96 - Curvaceous Cat - Photo Inspiration

Evening woo hoo got on to the computer after waiting all week-end this weeks Challenge is from the curvaceous Cat she has dedicated this challenge to her late mum

She has chosen a photo inspiration - actually 2 photos for you to choose from or find inspiration in both. Her mom passed away a year ago and butterflies, especially Monarchs, were a significant part of her life. As a child they would search for the gold, black and white caterpillars on milkweed plants and watch their transformation into beautiful butterflies. Now whenever she See's a butterfly she is reminded of her mom and feel she's still close by.

For the challenge, she has selected a photo of the caterpillar and butterfly; think of it as a before and after.

Please pop over to OSCC to see all the hard work everyone on the Design Team have done their work is beyond compere all the hard work that has been done in Honour of Cat's mum is so touching.
I lost my mum quite a while a go but it doesn't take much for me to feel a bit touchy for a little while it may be something so simple it does'nt need to be anything important just an idle thought " I should tell mum" then you remember you can't.

I don't know what the paper is off hand it's from my stash
Digi image Dew Dropz (who are our Sponsors this week)
Ribbon TKMAX
card, brads, chain, butterfly & flowers also from my stash.
