Ice Cream Bear

 Hi Everyone, a DT card for Deedee's Digis. This little bear is from her Ice Cream Truck kit, I decided to colour the bear myself and play with PS fur brushes, I love the texture it gives her, Yep! she's a her, I know 'cause of the bow LOL. I used a die cut on each edge after printing and cutting the image out. I added the sentiment from the kit, after recolouring the background to match the background of the bear.

Dance Team England Dance World Cup


Hi Everyone, I don't know if you remember, but I told you my Great Niece was in the England Dance Team World Cup Competition in Romania. I am VERY proud to inform you that the Team won for the third year running and  my G Niece got 2 Gold and a Silver and a Bronze. They also had a letter off the Queen congratulating the Team. I'm so thrilled for them and especially our Millie.

Boy Card

Hi Everyone, I have my new computer, then loaded it with a VERY bad virus. I tried to load a program I have been using for a few years and said yes to my virus checker when it asked if I wanted to download it!!!!!!!!!!  Oh! why didn't I listen to it. I have very nearly bought myself a new hard drive to get rid of it, then thankfully my son suggested another malware cleaner, which eventually got rid of it - I HOPE! I don't think I will ever catch up with everyone, my apologies.

Anyhow, here I am with a card for the Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge. I love this image from Jen Leeflang she hasn't a shop but you can see her work HERE. The card was designed and image coloured in Photoshop, I layered it all and 3D'd the boy..

I have returned!


Hi Everyone, my apologies for being AWOL, but my computer finally died on me, I have had a new one and started on line yesterday, I was lucky to have been able to save most of my files, but have to do a bit of sorting, so will be slow getting back into the swing of things.

I had hundreds of blogs to comment on, but have made the decision to not catch up, it wouldn't be fair on the ones I don't get to. Please understand. I will get around to your blogs as soon as I can on your most recent posts.

It seems this is my 600th post. WOW! not bad considering I don't post everyday, it's an achievement and milestone for me.

I have made a couple of cards - without the computer! can you believe it, but they are still in my camera, I'll post when I can. In the meantime, how about a couple of birdies? These were taken just before "melt down".

Once upon a time there was a little Sparrow named Jack! Jack Sparrow
 (you know Johnny Depp from the Pirates of the Caribbean films!)

Is my Mum or Dad here?

They told me to meet them here!

OK! I'll wait here

I'm getting REALLY hungry now!

I won't look at you until you have food, I'm starving!
PLEASE feed me!

Thanks Dad, I knew you would come and feed me

Thanks Dad you were only teasing me weren't you? -
No Son, I was trying to teach you that food was
only inches away and you could help yourself.
You'll have to learn a lot of things to survive in this big wonderful world!

Hope to see you soon

DSC Reminder


Hi Everyone, thought I would post a reminder today for the Digitally Sweet Challenges  you can see my original post HERE .  Thankfully my 'puter is holding out for me to fulfil my DT work.

You are asked to follow the colour or the fruit option of this colour sample.
I followed this sketch, then realised that this post would be after the closing date of the sketch challenge duh!




Here is my card from the Fun and Festive kit by Deedee's Digis the fabulous Sponsor of the challenge. I used the outline images also in the kit, so that I could choose the colours of the challenge to colour it. The sentiment also comes in the kit. The sketch design was laid out in PS as usual and was printed, I cut them out, layered them, with a ribbon around the centre band. I shaped the sentiment and added cord tied buttons. I added 3D'd Gloss to the stars and Ultra Fine Glitter to the cake.

Divin Daniel!

Hi Everyone, I have a DT post for Deedee's Digis a

Reminder you still have time to play in the
 Digi of the Month Progressive challenge.

I have used the outline images from the kit and used my own colours, if you don't have time, Deedee has ready coloured images to just print and go. I added a few more fishes, a sandbank and a weed overlay, some bubbles and the sentiment is from the kit. Coloured and printed it from PS, I decided to cut it short to add a punched border. (oops! if you believe that you'll believe anything LOL.) then I printed and fussy cut Daniel and 3D'd him.
