Crafty Purple Frog Challenges DT Card..........

Hello my lovlies running really late today, 1 of those very busy days so will just get on.
We have a new challenge over at Crafty Purple Frog this fortnight which is....

I have used the perfect 'Red Hearts' pyramage but only used the base layer, you can use these images in a variety of ways so they are perfect for those quick makes too.

I found these blank pillow boxes in my alterables box that I brought ages ago & still not opened the packet.....see I'm like that with everything not just stamps lol. These are fab for those quick makes. Now I cant remember where I got mine from but the company I buy my kraft card & other card from sells them so here is the link, this company is fab & you should check it out.

I decorated it in Prima A4 paper, tied some satin ribbon around, gems & a flower & of course the image.
I decided not to fold over the top & instead cut the other oval out & tie some ribbon through.
Perfect little gift box........which takes no time at all..........
The Ching Chou-Kuik image of course is only available from the Crafty Purple Frog store.

We look forward to seeing your red creations this fortnight. Please pop on over to see my teamies creations, go they will stun you with

Well I'm away now I'm doing some hopping now while I have me cuppa then I will be round laters my lovelies.
Thank you soooo much for stopping by mmwah....
Huge squishy hugs xoxoxoxoxo

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Lurrrrvvvvly & sunny here by the sea this morning at least I have my washing out this morning....
Well today is the new challenge over at Crafts & Me Challenges & this week its the Rockin' Rubbah Girlz to challenge you & our lovely Angela has chosen the theme which isssssssssss.....
Yep you know I love blue's so this was easy peezy for me lol............
Now I know I'm on the Rockin' Rubbah's I dropped a clanger & used a digi image, my bad!!
My excuse is I already has this beauty coloured up & she was perfect for this challenge as she was in the right

This one is to try show you the sparkle & bling lol. I added glossy accents to the moon & then covered it with glass glitter & then went around the edge with Picket Fence stickles. I also added stickles to the blue rose. The crochet flower I made.........I was trying different styles last week with my crochet.

The white corner was a gold metal corner but I splodged some white acrylic on it as its really rare I use gold & I've had these forever....... The sentiment is again a Whimsy ticket stamp & cut out using the ticket die.

The jute, fabric, buttons & gems are from my stash which I've had forever & long time lol.

The image is 'Violet' by the fabulous Hannah Lynn, yep my fave artist as you know & of course she is exclusive to Crafts & Me Store.
The papers are a mix of Prima & Websters Pages, they have had their edges duffed & inked & then splodged with a bit of white acrylic..........these are tough papers so they can handle the beating they got from me........its a tough job but someone's gotta do it lol.

Well me thinks thats about it from me but please pop on over to see my awesome teamies as they always make such stunner, I really do work with a talented bunch of girlies, both digi & rubbah they are all fab!!!

A quickie card & a new family member.......come see

Hello all my lovely jubbly peeps. Havnt really done any crafting this weekend except a quick card last for my son today Megan wanted to give him a card to mark their anniversary of when they met...Awwww. So I scoured & found some fabbylicious images.............I will show you that in a mo.
Yesterday afternoon some friends came for a few hours which was fantastic. We have been friends for about 14 years only we dont see them as much now cus they had to move further away due to work commitments. We had such a laugh that I wished I had gone the shop first for some Tenna Lady he heeee.

Anyway I will show you the quickie card I made. My son's nickname is 'Cookie Monster' which will explain the card..............

This is 'Fluffy' aka ?Cookie Monster lol......available from Pollycraft of course I had to colour him blue lol. Actually I've never coloured a fluffy monster before.......but as they say you can only get better lol.
You dont want to know how many more images I brought from there yesterday lol.

Lush paper is Echo Park. The ribbon is just plain white grosgrain which I coloured with a promarker, yeah borrowed it off hubster cus didnt want to waste the ink in my copic lol. The bunting & tag is from my Whimsy die which I got from Bunny Zoe's & the tag stamp is the same & I wrote 'You & Me' on.
The stitching I did by hand with Anchor cross-stitch thread.......bout time I used it its been neglected for sooooo long lol. The 2 glass pebbles are decoration on my shelf in the living room & I pinched 2 to enter the recycle challenge at Pollycraft again lol. 6x6 scalloped card is from Crafty Emma's which is also where you can get the Echo Park paper.

Now I did mean to post this this afternoon but we went to Sunderland to collect the new member of our family. Now these are my favourite EVER animal, I used to have one years ago but sadly she died.....darn that old age!!!!
Meet 'Bailey'

He is a red & white Boxer & is 15 weeks old..............isnt he just gorgeous. Let me tell you for those that dont know no matter what dog breeder you speak to if you ask what is the best dog to have with children they will all say 'Boxer' cus they really are fantastic, Natalie loves these dogs & I really miss the one we had so hubster brought me this little fella today.............

Well he is not really little lol............ He loves the camera & decided after a few shots he would like to show off lol..............

That coat is just so shiny & so soft I just want to stroke him all the time lol.
Well this is the newest member of our family & now I'm off to bed as I've got to be up early to take Ben to work cus he needs a new brake switch for his car, the brakes work but he's not getting a brake light on so better not risk getting pulled & getting a fine & 3 points on his licence.

So my lovelies I will say nighty night see ya all tomorrow & thank you sooooooooo much for all your comments on my CES post yesterday they really did mean a lot.

MMWAH squishy hugs to you all xoxoxoxxo
