Fab Digi for a challenge

I found this lovely lady who does some amazing drawings on Face book and has a blog which has some freebie images for you as well as some fantastic creations.  If you haven't already seen Sj's Little Musings then you have to take a peek.  There are also some digi images that are already coloured for you, so it makes using them that little bit easier.

I have used one of sj's images to make a card for a boy, I don't usually do boys cards simply because I cant find the right image, that was until I came upon this one.  So here is my creation.......................................
Digi Image - Archie - Sjs - little Musings
Papers - Papermania 
Coloured with - Pro markers and Water Colour Pencils
Sentiment - Pollycraft
Buttons - From my stash
(I also made a tag to accompany the card here)

I am going to enter this card into the Crafty Card makers challenge #14 this week which is Digi Delights, The image used is digital as is the sentiment.

Hope you like my creations will hopefully be back again tomorrow with another of this weeks makes.  Thanks for popping by!

A simple thank you card

It has been manic here, Its my daughters birthday tomorrow and I have the family coming around and I am arranging her party for a week Saturday,  This Saturday she has a party of one of her friends to go to and she has a school performance in the city.  So not much time for crafting!

I have however managed to make this thank you card using a tilda image, papers & card from my stash, the stamp 'thanks' is by cuddly buddly( I think) and the hat pins are from Hobby Craft.  I have used my water colour pencils to colour. 

Thats all from me this week hopefully I will get time next week to take part in a few challenges.  Will be blog hopping later to see all my blogging buddies work!

Bye for now

Good news and Bad news!

Some excellent news first I think!!! I have won some gorgeous candy from over at  Designs By Denise If you haven't been over there yet you must go check out her lovely stamps and creations.  I cant wait to receive my stamp and make some crafty goodies with it!  Thank you Denise !

Now the BAD news

Well it would appear that some one has been spreading a little bit of naughtyness around this week as I have been locked out of everything that needs a password including here and my own forum!!!  So I have been spending time sorting that out!  All my passwords we unaccepted so I had to change them, for me that is a bit of a huge task as I forget everthing and have so many email addys and passwords running through my head I cant remember which belongs to which.

Any how its all sorted now fingers crossed!!!

I have some things to show you now I am all sorted but have a few bits and bobs to do first, I shall return soon!
