Crafts & Me DT Card............

Good morning everyone how are you all doing? Well would you believe we have sunshine here this morning, we are being spoilt lol.
Well its time for Crafts & Me new challenge & this week its the 'Rockin' Rubbah Girlz' & this week our lovely sweet Amy has set the challenge.
We Are In Stitches
No we dont mean from running or laughing lol....... we mean the sewing kind or indeed the faux kind, fake or real we dont mind my sweeties.
We have the fabby Whiff Of Joy sponsoring us this week with a gorgeous rubber stamp on offer.
I have inked up another unopened neglected one & boy did I enjoy colouring this beauty in, here she is...
Yes another mermaid today lol.
Isn't she so beautiful...... This is 'Pearl Swirl Mermaid' by Jasmine Becket-Griffith which is exclusive to

This is 1 of the flowers I won from Magnolia they are lush & this one I sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist & then opened the flower up. Its hard to get a piccy of the full sparkle. It has been attached to a crochet flower handmade by moi. You can also see the tulle better that is under the lace.

I added 2 love hearts punched out using my MS Punch & inked the edges with Weathered Wood distress ink. Tag is Tim Holtz.

This beauty I painted with Distress Inks because I wanted a softer feel to her unforunately those eyes are lush & I thought they would love a bit of they are not so much soft but more dramatic!! Oh but doesnt she deserve them. I still need to practice my painting, its the skin I struggle with more than anything.
I also did the gems in her hair with a blue souffle pen & then added Ice stickles to them to give her some bling. Her tail & top also had a shimmer of glitter dust on her.

The paper I've used is 'Madeline' by Prima, mine is the A4 pad from Bunny Zoes's but you can only get it in 6x6 now, I love this pad its gorgeous. All the edges were inked with weathered wood & then distressed with my scissors. The scroll is a magnolia doo hickey. Card is from my stash including the ribbed kraft card which I love.

The Little Mermaid

Good evening everyone I'm gonna start tonight by firstly saying sorry to everyone for not getting around to everyone's blogs. As well as the pups which in all honesty Fudge does most of the looking after lol but I've also been in extreme agony & I'm so sorry to moan about it yet again......I'm getting sick of my own voice actually!! The doc is rushing things to see me as they dont know what the pains are, they have looked at my CT scan & I dont have kidney stones it has showed up something near my bowel but they are not sure what. The doc is not sure if my kidney is diseased as he thinks urine could be going back into my kidney which is not good & cause a diseased kidney..........unfortunately I have to put up with the severe pain until they have found whats wrong. The weekend was really bad & by yesterday I could barely walk so I will try my best to catch up with you all.
Anyway I am filling in every Monday over on the Crafts & Me store til the digi DT are fully restored again so I've made meself make a card this evening. Its not turned out like I hoped but I didnt have time to do another I will show it you anyways..........
Today for my card I have used a digi image......I sooooo love digi's I really love the versatility of them.
I have used 'My Little Mermaid' by Sara Burrier made exclusively for Crafts & Me. I decided to do a step card this really are the easiest cards to make.

This is a fabulous image I've never coloured her before today, she is sooooo easy to colour. I coloured her hair with copic warm greys as they have a tinge of brown in them & her tail I coloured with cool greys & added glitter to her..........thought she deserved a bit of bling.....

The die-cuts I've tried to mimic seaweed. The blank space in the middle fold is to put a sentiment once I know what this card will be used for.

Everything except the green die-cuts is from my stash what I've found in my hobbit today lol.
I've used only 1 bit of DP which is what the image is on its actually a sea one from Raspberry Road.....I am so in love with that store & I cant keep away now lol. I have used dark blue & royal blue card from my stash & the waves I have used a die cut which I cant remember the name of sorry. The green die-cuts I wanted to sort of mimic seaweed.....they are actually Magnolia doo-hickeys......I got my surprise prize today from TOMIC........oh my word I have NEVER EVER seen anything like it.....EVER...I cant believe how lucky I am to recieve all of this.......including the die-cut I've used on this card today.
Here is a pic of what mr postie brought me this morning.........

Excuse the background I took the photo on my bed this morning lol.
I know some of you dont like magnolia which is fair enough we all have different pretty boring world if we didnt.......however I love them & they are certainly generous it felt like crimbo today & altho I have said a huge thank you it just doesnt seem enough for all of I'm am doing something to say thank you to them but cant tell you what yet......its a secret lol.
Well I' sorry for the very long post my lovelies. Thank you sooooo much for all your lovely comments they mean soooo soooooooo much they really do.
Toodles for now mmwah

Good morning all my lovely friends, how are you all?
Well 11.45pm my Fudgie starting having her it was amazing to watch, well I thought so anyway lol. She did sooo sooooo well she never wimpered or whined she just did really well. We had to help her with 2 of them & cut the umbilical cord as she was struggling but other than that she did so well. Me however was a bundle of nerves & kept panicking that she would sit on them & kill them.........good job Craig was there as well lol. She had 5 babies altogether she had the 5th one at 2.40am this morning so as promised I have put some piccy's on for you to see the little cuties........
Awwww my fudgie....she did so well I'm so proud of her & its funny that Charlie becomes a daddy on daddy's day lol.........

I dont think the one at the back realises that it was a one way street lol...........

Got these photo's when we give Fudge some treats.......her babies cant stop her from her bacon treats lol......3 of them she had she was starving bless her....
