Boil and Toil

Betty from SBS asked us to colour her new images with our favourite colour blends and today I am sharing my Lime Green contribution

I have used the new Boil and Toil Digi

I have used it to start off my colour journal which I have been putting off doing for over 3 years (better late than never right) and I have used 3 of my favourite lime green colour blends

Cauldron - G28 YG17 YG06 YG03
Potion - G05 YG11 YG00
Hate Band - G05 YG21

Of all these I am really in love with the potion blend and how airy and bubbly looking I got it..

So why not go and grab these great images and have a go yourself with some new blends...
Happy colouring

Card 2

Quickly popping in with my second card for the challenge at Tiddly Inks....

And here is what I came up with this time around....

I just had to do something with this quote it has been burning a hole in my brain since I got it because it just sums up country life...

Happy crafting...

Crafty Time!!

Recently Sophie my almost 7 year old daughter had a pupil free day at school while her little sister still had kindy so that gave us the perfect opportunity to have a few hours of quality mum and daughter time crafting and creating...

We started by Sophie scrolling though my pinterest inspiration board looking for a card she wanted to make and then the fun began....

I must admit that it was amazing to be able to spend so time one on one with Sophie and getting to do something I love at the same time. Not to mention the amazing card we came up with.

I am entering this card into the challenge at Tiddly Inks here

Now off to make another card so I can enter the other sections....thats a good excuse to craft on a rainy day i think lol.

Happy crafting....

Steampunk Storage

Howdy everyone!!
Today I am sharing my first DT post for the team Glimps....

I have made a little holder for one of my sentiment album using an empty box from some envelopes....I particularly like to upcycle things and give them a new life as something pretty and practical...

This is what I started with...

Then with a few patterned papers and a bit of fiddling.... waalaa...

Then came the fun bit adding an image and I couldnt go past this Glimp cutie.....steampunk fairy

and her mate for on the album

And so now onto the finished piece...... I present my steampunky album and holder......

Thank you for looking everyone and until next time.....
Keep crafting...

Back to School

Hi popping in again today so I can share a card I made for the September challenge at Some Odd Girl and I used the optional twist of OFF TO SCHOOL.

Here in Australia we are nearing the end of our school year so I have used the twist to create a Teacher Thank You card and this little cutie was perfect for the job.

Anyway hope you love it and happy crafting.....

And now onto my part of the bloghop here she is................

So now I can hear you asking how did I become a dark fairy???? Well it all started at the beginning of the year when I had to have a diet change and let me just say it was drastic!! Now a couple of those things I can no longer have are coffee and chocolate.... I can hear you groaning already, trust me I was the same I love me chocolate but I really can't do without at least 1 cup of coffee so I had to make the decision of no more chocolate so I could keep that 1 cup of coffee.
But lately I have been feeling a bit strange and noticed a few weird things happening around my local area, there is no chocolate to be found, it is as if someone or something is stealing it all. Good for me right - no temptation!!! But now that is all anyone can talk about. This dark and sinister force stealing everyones stash be it secret or not.. There have been stories of it flying in a grabbing blocks straight out of peoples hands in brazen attackes.... Who and what is yet to be discovered but I am sure it is for the best......RIGHT!!!!

Anyway you better hop on over to the SBS store and grab the images before it gets wind of your secret stash!!!
Happy hopping and crafting!!
