Howdy Cowgirl

I am sharing another fabulous Kith & Kin digi image with you today and this one is 

Cowgirl Karen

When us girls were all lucky enough to be chosen to be on her design team, Kyra offered to draw us our very own digi of us as any character we wanted, how awesome is that!
Karen decided she wanted to be a Cowgirl and WOW!!! Kyra did a brilliant job.
I coloured her with pro markers and added Glossy Accents to her eyes and belt buckle, and Sakura white glaze pen to her buttons.Then I cut her out using Sizzix Framlits Ticket die. The papers are from my stash as is the washi tape and pearls. The fronds are cut from kraft paper using Marianne Creatables Anja Leaves 3 die.
Over on Kith & Kin facebook page there is still time to enter the 'Spring' challenge and we are only 24 likes away from 3000! Kyra is going to offer a fantastic prize when the page gets to 3000, so head on over and like us please :)
I hope you like my CowGirl Karen and will head on over to the fb page and enter before the end of May.

Kith & Kin May Challenge - Spring

Hi Bloggers

I am soooooooo happy to be back doing my bit on the DT for Kith & Kin, I've missed making DT cards.
The challenge for May is
so anything spring themed
colours, flowers etc whatever you like that fits the SPRING theme.

I used 'Ella Swinging' for my card and coloured her with pro markers, highlights and freckles with a white gel pen. The papers are from my stash, sorry I can't remember the makers, sentiment & candi (used for flower centers) are from Craftwork Cards. The ribbons, gems and butterfly are from my stash, I coloured the wooden butterfly with Cosmic Shimmer Dazzle Paint & Smooch Glitz Sparkle Accent Ink.

You can find the challenge here and all of Kyra's fantastic images here.
Can't wait to see your entries.

New Home, New Crafty Area


I'm Back!

So lets start with our new home

We have moved into the perfect place, a lovely 2 bed bungalow with a cute little garden just perfect for the furbabies
As some of you might remember at our old house I had a whole double bedroom as my craft room and obviously now I've not got that luxury BUT I think I love my craft area even better than the big craft room.

Everything that I need is here or stored in the sideboard in the hallway, I am in the living room with Steve and not alone in a room on another floor, perfect.
A couple of days after my space was finally sorted & stored I had a rather important card to make, my cousins twins 1st birthday was fast approaching.
I decided I would go with a topper and not colour an image as it had been a while since I had coloured and I didn't want to mess things up before I had a chance to get back into things properly.

I wanted a really bright fun card for the boys and loved this bunny topper but I had a problem, the bow & ribbon on the present were pink, and it was too much pink with the ears and nose. So I went over the ribbon & bow with Stickles Starry Night and added glossy accents to the bunny's nose.
The green present paper has glitter bows on too so it's nice and bright and textured, the candi is in the colours of the sentiment which doesn't show up great in this photo, sorry.
I was really happy with the finished result and now can't wait to get back to regular paper crafting, and blogging my makes.
Off to have a cuppa before bed now,
