Exciting Times

Hi all, well it's been a good week since i last posted.  I do have a good reason though and that is because my friend Sonia and i have decided to start up our own challenge blog.  Boy it's been a lot of work behind the scenes getting everything organised, we have had a lot of applications for the design team.  There is still time to apply.

All the details on how to apply can be found on the blog!

I found out today that i made Top 3 over at Butterfly Challenge, so thank you ladies for choosing me as one of your Top 3.

I will be back a little later on, until then, i hope you all have a super day.

Animals or Pets - Digitally Sweet Challenges

Hi all,  today I have another layout, iv'e been playing around with some new digital kits and i'm having a blast.  But today's layout nearly didn't happen as the program i am using i accidentally pressed the wrong key and swiped out half the functions.  After ages going through what i had done and trying to get the functions back i finally managed to get everything back and working thank goodness.

Butterflies and Fairies

Hi all, Hope your all having a good weekend.  We have stayed in where it's warm, this cold weather plays havoc with arthritis and so painful anyway, staying home means i get to craft and quite happily make a ton of mess.

Yesterday i painted up a large and a small canvas thinking i would create something with them both but then i had a brainwave to stick them together and add some of those crazy birds to, they look really cool.  But not dry yet so i can't get a good photo.  I have been playing around with some digital kits though and it's taken a good few hours to get this layout right, but i'm so happy with this and of course where it's fairies and butterflies, what's not to like.

Crazy Birds

Hi all, if you are out and about going to Fireworks parties i hope you all stay safe. Today i really wanted to take part in the Go Tag Thursday challenge where the theme is Birds/Bird Houses.  I have had these crazy birds for what seem like an age and this challenge was the perfect theme to use them.  As my colouring isn't really fantastic so i decided to paint, where i mixed and matched some lovely bright colours.
