WOYWW - Mess mess and more mess

Its Wednesday and I have just had a little bit of time to take a quick piccy, there is too much going on at the mo to sit and craft, my desk is chaotic as you can see.......
There is the card I made using Susan's papers and that is sat on top of some of susans papers that I have printed off to use. The beige flowery one is my absolute favourite I love it!!!!  Little sewing box as I have sewed some badges on for my son on his cubs uniform and I have yet to do my daughters rainbow badges.  Then its just general mess sorry!!!
The next pic is of my drawer of pro markers now usually they are all in colour sets but I messed them all up but you get the general idea, I have water colour pencils in there too and my provocraft eyelet setter :)

Right that's it I have a very tired little 4 year old at home from school today to look after awwwwww.... 
so off I must go.

Don't forget if you would like to get involved pop over to julias blog and check out other peeps wonderful desks and work spaces, its addictive, I think we all like having a nose in other peoples houses!

First Dt for Crafty Chaos Designs

Well today I had a tiny bit of time to have a play with some of Susan's fab papers. This card is just one of those special cards you have kept in a box for emergencies.  I haven't added a sentiment as I want you to be able to see the fab paper Susan has created.
Thought I would add a little 
close up of the 
paper too......

Susans papers print so well and are fab to work with I would recomend them to everyone and they are a great price too!!!
I would like to enter this card into the A spoon Full of Sugar challenge which is Enjoying the Sunshine - you cant beat a bit of gardening in this weather can you!  Especially in your shorts and tshirt like Chloe.

Right thats all from me for today I must get on there is so much going on at the moment, these next 2 weeks are very busy busy busy!!!

Byeee for now

Elephants called Eli and son!  Perfect for fathers day cards or other items, now when I was making this project I did think you could do a little pink elephant girl and a blue daddy as some times we just cant get those cute fathers day cards from girls to dads.

Any how enough of my waffling here is this weeks DT creation

  • Image Sj's little Musings - Eli and Son
  • Papers ???
  • Die cuts- on my new Cuttle bug with Nellies
  • sentiment is from papermania 
  • stitching is my own (must use the sewing machine!)
  • pen and other bits and bobs are from my stash
I am going to enter this little project into the Creative Inspirations Challenge, this week the theme is Stitching/faux stitching.  I have stitched all around and on the little pen holder.

Right off to get some more bits and bobs done, I also have some fabulous news to share with you.

Here is my card using Nippy 
Isn't he adorable?  I know there are quite of few of you who own westies so this will be a perfect image for you.  I am going to be using him a lot especially for thank you cards when people look after My own Westie Pinky when we go on our holidays.

I have used:
Papers - ?  I am terrible at remembering!
Image Sj's Little Musings - Nippy
Coloured with - Pro markers just to bring the image out a little I have used Ivory and Pink in the ears 
Sentiment - is one by the lovely Caz (check out her fab work!)
Pearls - Paper mania
Flowers - Blogging buddy Sarah
Punch - X cut
Thanks all for popping by and dont forget to get on over to Sj's Little Musings and pick up this freebie and check out what the DT have done with this Fab image, oooo and I forgot to mention one image is already shaded for you like the one in my card and the other is plain for you to shade as you wish or even change the colours completely for maybe a cairn terrier or a scotty?
Catch you soon
