General girly birthday today with very zesty colour scheme to brighten up the day! Lola's coloured in with my promarkers which i am beginning to wonder how i managed without them before...even some on my christmas wishlist ( pleeeeeeeease ian )

Yet again a Lola Rose image but i just thinks she's fab...the colours stand out with this one against the dark background and dotted this with the cuttlebug...another thing i cant seem to get enough of at the moment :0)

Have been carbooting today and although gorgeous day was a bit disheartened as not one card or calender sold...maybe needed a different crowd of person...we all love a bargain but really do you expect to get handmade cards and gifts for coppers...please!!

thats me for today, till next time take care

As promised a total change of colour scheme today...a gorgeous bright and cheery Lola Rose calender, i love the image and colours are just fab, hopefully other people think so too. Just cant seem to stop making them...good thing if they sell :0)

I am in the process of making loads of these calenders...some to sell for me and some for charity (gota recoop costs somewhere) just hoping they will sell.

Bye for now

I am trying to stock up on all sorts of cards to sell at a sale over the Bank Holiday weekend weather permitting! I love Lola Rose and this is a really lovely image too. Plus am loving the pink and grey theme at the moment so forgive me if you get a little bored of looking at this colour scheme...total contrast will come next post :-)

I got myself some fab new Promarkers and they are fantastic...the images look like i've printed them already coloured when really went back to my childhood and coloured them in...loved it too :0)

I love the colours, the papers and the image is great...cant get enough of Pink Petticoat images

Well just before i sign off for today let me say Thankyou to Tony & Louise for taking me out for a gorgeous lunch...still stuffed now :0)
Congratulations again guys xx

Take care

Cheerio for now

Well i know it's been a few days since my last post...i haven't been slacking i just dont seem to have enough hours in the day!!

I've actually been crafting away like a busy little bee...making wedding invites, calenders, xmas cards as well as birthday cards etc...lots to show for virtually the whole afternoon in the attic :0)

This is a birthday card for a nephew...not quite a boy and not a man so an inbetweener at the mo and very difficult to make for but hopefully he will like this.

That's all for today
