I used Melinda in the rain and coloured her with prismacolour pencils and a little bit of sansador to blend.For the rain I added some liquid pearls for dimension.
The papers I have used are Basic Grey's 'Blush' collection. I've added some rub-ons from Cherry arte (the butterfly and flower).
I've punched out the flowers with my retro flower punches and added a half pearl to the centre. The sentiment is a ticket from Tim Holtz.
Well, just to say I am patiently waiting for Donna from Crafty Krafts to facelift my blog! I am currently top of her list so hopefully any time now.......I would give it a go myself but I have not a clue where to start.
Have a great day...windy here and first cloudy day of our 2 week school holiday, so can't complain really..

This is the card I have made for Cute Card Thursday. I've used another of my new hAnglars and coloured him with promarkers. I've pop dotted him in front of of a magnolia fence. I've used this image because it reminds me of all the jobs that need to be done in the garden right now!
The card is from American Crafts Autumn cardstock. And the stripey DP is from Scenice Route Sonoma collection.The large arrow is also a die-cut from this collection.
He is embellished with buttons from my jar and quickutz cookie cutter leaves.
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend,

I had this topper already made so it literally took me 10 mins to put together.
The image is Winter Nellie and she is coloured with promarkers.
The DP are Crate Papers..can't remember what collection. The swirls are Hero Arts and are stamped in Close to Cocoa from SU.
I've added pearls and ribbon from stash for embellishment.
I wasn't sure if the colours were Christmassy enough to make a Christamas card but I quite like a wee change from the traditional colours.
Thanks for looking..
Have a good day..off to take the boys swimming this afternoon...they have been asking all week and have been putting it off. I hate swimming ..too cold standing in waist deep water. Yeuch! Not my idea of a fun afternoon. But if it keeps the boys happy then I won't complain. And they also get really tired, another bonus :)

Not much to share today...had a quiet weekend crafting wise. I thought I would show you some toppers I have made last week for a topper swap on the Sugar Nellie forum. I used Winter Nellie and promarkers to colour. I used Basic Grey flourishes and swirls for the edges and chalked with brown round the edges. They are matted with matching green and pink cardstock. For a little extra, I added 3 teeny pearls to the bottom corner.
Sorry photos were meant to appear here and not at the top...but you get the idea!!
Have a lovely day

I made this card for no particular reason..just to have in my box for using whenever. I like the fun image and you can make it into a fun card! It has been sitting around for a while but I will submit it to this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge. It almost fits the sketch..my image is not a circle..but maybe it will do!
I do not have a Cuttlebug machine but I just love the embossing effect you can create with the embossing folders. So, with my Quickutz Revolution I have managed to use the flourish embossing folder. The platform is a little too small but it works...kind of...with the thin sticky mat. I think the new Quickutz Love (now Jan 2009) that is coming out is supposed to be compatible with all makes of dies. That would be great!
Stamp: Penny Black coloured with promarkers, and liquid pearls, Hero Arts sentiment stamp
Papers: bazzil cardstock and core'dinations Black Magic cardstock
Embellishments: Prima flowers, Dovecraft crystal brads, dew drops, ribbon from collection, beads and elastic thread from collection
Tools: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Quickutz phototcorner die, sandpaper

This is a simple wedding card or could be turned easily into an anniversary card. The stamps are from Stampendous, which I have coloured with watercolour pencils. The image is matted onto silver cardstock. The background is a sentiment stamp stamped over and over again in silver ink. The wording goes like this " May your life together be full of love and your love full of life." This stamp is from Penny Black. 3 half pearls are added for a little decorative touch. I have doodled a frame around the edges. Oh the turqoise cardstock is from Bazzil.
Hope your all having a good day...I'm off to sort out the kitchen, then the washing, then ....the list goes on. The rain is on today so should get lots done.
Seeeeee you soon
