  Not sure about you but I definitely wouldn't be afraid if this little "monster" showed up at my door.....the bats are another story though! This is my Oct. make for the My Whimsical Little World Challenge Blog. The image is called  Alexander the Great Dinosaur & you can find him right here. I coloured Alexander with copics. The DP is from my scrap bucket so I don't know the company. The trees are Memory Box dies & the bats are stamps from the $1 store. The spooky spider is Making Memories & the trick or treat sentiment is Pebbles Inc. You can enter a card in the MWLW Challenge here.  The challenges are always anything goes & if you use a MWLW image you can enter 3 times  any( other image is only 1 entry.)

Happy Birthday!


I'm back with another adorable Make It Crafty image! This one is "Zoe Celebrates" & if you go to Zoe's You tube channel you can watch her colour the beautiful curly hair....showing you how to get depth into the hair. Orange isn't a colour I usually reach for but the person I made this card for just isn't a pinky kind of girl. I really like how it turned out!  She is coloured with copics & as the sentiment is part of the image all I had to do was matt it with Prism orange CS & add the Memory Box star die cut. Thanks for stopping by.

Carly Celebrates!

I have been MIA for some time due to computer issues! I downloaded Windows 10 a few weeks ago & suddenly had no sound, no video & couldn't upload anything to blogger. I tried all of the suggested "fixes" with no success. Then I headed off on a weeks holiday hoping there would have been a "magic fix" when I got home but no such luck. After contacting the Windows help desk they informed me my computer wasn't compatible with W10! My big question is why would they let me download it if it wasn't compatible? Oh well, I am now back to Windows 7 & all is normal.

So, this little sweetie is Carly & she was created by the oh so talented Zoe at Make It Crafty. This is a cropped image of Carly which I learned how to do in a video on the MIC FB page. She is coloured with copics (I'm loving her red hair!) The DP is American Crafts & the CS is Prism. The "hello" is a Stampin Up thinlet die & the bling is Recollections.  Thanks for stopping by!

Beach Wagon

This beach wagon makes me want to go to Hawaii & become a surfer! There are a few problems with that dream....I can't surf for one & I don't like being in deep water....ah well, another dream down the tubes!  I made this card for my son's birthday (he has been to Hawaii & can surf!) & he loved it. The image is from Paola at My Whimsical Little World & you can find it here. This is the mid way point in this months challenge at MWLW. You can join in using any image you want but if you use one from MWLW you will be entered into the draw 3 times. The challenge is always anything goes. So, what are you waiting for....colour up something beautiful & head over to the challenge blog here.

Happy Place!

One of my favourite places on earth is a beautiful little place in Northern Ireland called Caslterock. I spent many happy hours in a "caravan" there with a very dear friend. So when I saw this image of Paola's it brought a flood of happy memories to mind. It has been over ten years since I have been back to N. Ireland but I visit there regularly in my dreams!
This cute image is called Happy Camper & you can find it here.  Hope you will join us in the August challenge at My Whimsical Little World! The challenge is always ATG; you can use any image but if you use a MWLW image you can enter twice.

I Love Moo!

I made this card for my Hubby for our 44th wedding anniversary which is today. I have wanted to use this adorable Mo Manning image called "Moo" for ages & this seemed the perfect occasion. Just look at the soulful eyes on her! The verse inside reads "It's a good thing we still have each other 'cuz no one else would put up with either of us!" tee hee.....I actually think that statement is pretty accurate! As usual I chose a CAS style & coloured the image with copics. The CS is Prism cranberry & the DP is Doodle Hearts by the Paper Studio.
