No Time For Anything

Evening Crafty Friends and Followers, it's been such a long day today, was at hospital this morning for me, then had to go and get my DLA sorted, then we had to take Makenzy to the hospital for his check up, all good until July, just got some tablets to take until we go back. So after a day like mine I've never had anytime to do or make anything, but got things printed out ready for tomorrow to do Christening cards, Mothers Day card and a new baby card so busy, busy tomorrow. Oh also got to find clothes for our grandson's Christening on Sunday.
Hope you've all had a good day.


Another Day

Evening Crafty Friends and Followers, another lazy day today, it was one of those day when you want to do something but not sure what so you end up doing nothing. I've got another card to show you from the images that I coloured the other day. I've added clear gems to make them look like bubbles in the water. I added a little crab charm to the bottom corner which can be removed and added to whatever you would like. let me know what you think.


Morning, Bright and Early

Morning Crafty Friends and Followers, I'm bright and early doing my blog today, got my class tonight and find it hard to do it when I get in afterwards.
The card I'm showing you today is another card with a image that I coloured the other day. I just love these images at the minute, I think there's so many way to colour them.  I coloured with Copics, Promarkers and Tom Holts Distress markers, I've only started with the Tim Holts markers and still not sure if I like them or not, the nibs lovely to work with but I have found blending them isn't as easy as my other pens.
I think this image looks better than I do in a morning

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - Anything Goes


Love Making Cards

Hi crafty Friends and Followers, I have had a lovely day today> I spent this morning with my husband Andrew just relaxing and chatting, then this afternoon I thought I would make a few cards with the images that I coloured in yesterday.
Here is one of the cards that I made, I used Promarker and Copics to colour the image and everything else was things I had in my craft sash. Tying the bows wasn't easy with them being so small.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - Mother's Day - Women - Mother's Day - Buttons or Bling - All Things Spring - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Anything Goes


Good and Bad

Hello Crafty friends and Followers, didn't have a good morning, Andrew (hubby) had his appointment at the hospital about his lungs. He had to have another scan and after 2 hours sitting in the hospital, he now has to go bad next week to have a "Bronchoscopy" done and might be in over night, was also told this might damage his lungs more, just have to wait and see.
Had a nice afternoon playing with my images and colouring pens. I thought I would sit and do some colouring in, so I have some already made to do some cards up. I love sitting colouring in, it always relaxing just to sit and do this. I use Promarkers, Copics and Distress markers, if I need to add a hint of depth I use my colouring pencils.
Here are a few of the images that I've been colouring



Hello Crafty Friends and Followers, I've had another good day, grandchildren been playing so no crafting for them. So I decided to make my "Dammit Doll" I've made loads for charity.  Here one is and the verses that goes with it
"When you seem to climb the walls"
or stand up and shout.
I've made for you a Dammit Doll
You cannot do without
You grab it firmly by the legs
And find a place to slam it.
Then as you whack the stuffing out
Yell Dammit, Dammit, Dammit Doll

I hope you like it
