Howdy doody everyone, how are you all? I hope the weather is not too bad where ever you are here in the North its really bad........I think Scotland are getting it even worse bless them. The winds are so bad I usually go along a dual carriage way to pick my son up from school cus its about 5 miles away, however I went the other way to avoid it as the winds were really bad on the van with it being higher.

Well I've not been around much today on the internet had a few apointments & probs with internet AGAIN!! So we have gone with a new provider today but it will take 11 days before we go live with them, so we have to put up with the rubbish we have til then grrrrrrrrrrr........

The gorgeous image is 'Gypsy Dancer' isn't her hair fabulous & those that know me know that I luuurrrvve this I loved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Papers are from Nitwits' Heavenly Too' & all the edges have been inked with Vintage Photo & matted onto kraft card.
I used MS punch for the edge of the kraft card & inked the edge.

Cork tiles I made myself

She has of course been coloured with Copics but I cant remember which ones I know for her hair I think I used E18 E15 E11
skin - E21 E00 E000 R11

Crafts & Me DT Card.............Winter brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Hello all my lovelies how are you? Its freezing up here in the North but thankfully not as cold as yesterday. I took my son school yesterday morning & going along I put my window washer on to clear the windscreen & the water froze as soon as it hit the window..........couldn't hardly see out & in a big van thats not good. Luckily I was only a few yards from leaving mine so I was able get a jug of warm water & defrost it lol.

Well today sees a fabby new challenge over at CRAFTS &ME & this week the lovely Angela has chosen the theme which is...................WINTER - snow/snowflakes
I decided to use a stamp that is not actually a crimbo image but I think she suits all types of cards & of course she has wings & Im a sucker for my angels/fairies....

I love this image she is so beautiful. I decided to break out my distress inks but I have ran out of my usual watercolour paper I use & found this, dont know who its by as it no longer has a cover......wish I knew tho cus its crap!!!!!!!! It really is rubbish & made using the inks really hard & after I had finished I didnt like the end result but didnt have time to redo with copics :0( so excuse colouring..........

Its another simple flat card for crimbo posting..............I tell ya these are killing me if only postage was cheaper!!!!!!!!! 

Ingredients are;
Image is 'Turn To Hesed' by Sara Burrier exclusive only for Crafts & Me, coloured with distress inks & wings covered in stardust stickles
Wooden Snowflake I heat embossed with white & silver powder.
Papers are Websters Pages & edges inked with Vintage Photo & matted onto kraft card & then onto a 6x6 card blank.  Winter sentiment stamp which I recently found in my mess I call a craft room lol. Pine tree branch cut out of white card & edged with a touch of vintage photo.
Pearls, gems, ribbon & ribbon slider all from my stash.

Well thats it from me we look forward to seeing your wintery creations. Please pop on over to see my fabulous teamies creations..........they are ALL stunners!!
Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate you all & loves ya all.
