Crafter's Cafe - 15th June, 2024

 Great sponsor at The Crafter's Cafe this month.

Sheepski designs

 If you have never checked out her gnomes, have a look, she has amazing gnomes in the store, this month the theme at The Crafter's Cafe is to "Include a Gnome".

My project this month is not completed, for a number of reasons.  Firstly we are moving and in the middle of packing up our 46 year old home.

Now the packing is going great, thankfully we got a long settlement date.  But something had to give, when your craft/art studio is packed up. I still have a glue stick, my prismacolour pencils and some paper.  Other than that a whole lot of boxes.  

I started this card, by colouring with pencils, wasn't happy so decided to use the computer.  Liked what I saw, printed and then used my snow marker, WAIT, oh no, my heat gun is in a box, but which box? So, I decided to use my hair dryer.  Disaster, with comments from hubby, too strong, too much etc etc.

I have reprinted and the card will be finished in a couple of months, in time for Christmas.

Looks like the next few months could be a hit and miss, although I did make a few cards earlier in the year.

Festive Friday at The Outlawz - 7 June, 2024

 This month's themes are:

Christmas
Father's Day
Flowers
Dogs or Cats
 
I chose to go with the Dogs or Cats theme and have used an image from Ike's, called Basket Case. I have coloured the image with copic pens.  I then layered image onto some black cardstock and fussy cut to give a border. Background patterned paper and a stamped sentiment completes the card.

Pearly Sparkles - 1st June, 2024

 The theme is One for the Girls.  I have had this image in my stash for a while, thought it would make a great birthday card for an tween girl, not a child, and not yet quite a teenager.

I coloured the image sometime ago and cannot find it on my computer, if anyone knows the name of the image, please leave a comment.  Coloured with copics, I have added a music diecut and some little paper candy.

Crafter's Cafe - 15th May, 2024

 This month's challenge at The Crafters Cafe is "Smile Be Happy"  something we all need to do more of nowadays.

Two sponsors that have lots of fun images

Dr Digis

 https://www.doctor-digi.com/

 and 

My Besties

 https://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html

I used an image from My Besties, called "Meet Gas the 8th Dwarft"

Coloured with copic pens, there is some glitter, not showing in photo.  Typed the sentiments at the same time I printed the image.  Not one of my better photos, but it is dark and I am running really late, so took the photo inside.

A Place to Start - 6th May, 2024

This month's them is for a Lady and the sponsor is Polka Doodles.  I've used an image called Gnome with Carrots.  The backing papers came with the image.  After seeing this cute carrot sentiment, I thought a cheer up card to a female friend, who likes her carrots was in order.

 I have used the precoloured image from Polkadoodles this time round.

A Place to Start - 1st April, 2024

 This month the theme at A Place to Start is to add one or more flowers. The sponsor is  Sheepski  Designs, and I have used an image called "Cornflowers"

My craftroom is mostly packed away at the moment whilst we sell and move house.  I have been doing some pencil colouring classes at Kit and Clowder and thought this was a great time to practice with my pencils.

The image has been coloured with Prismacolour Pencils.
