Willow Sketchie challenge time

Morning All  ! 

It's rather damp here today but not particularly cold  but I bet it won't be long before I'm wishing I had a hat just like Walter's !

I think this has to be my favourite of all the fabulous designs on the new Walter and Winnie does Christmas cd from Willow designs -he must be I have used him an awful lot lately 

here is the sketch we want you to follow

I'm better now

Thankfully my tummy has returned to normal now although I was diasappointed to find that being poorly had nt helped my weight loss last week ,considering I had hardly eaten all week and then spent most of the week in the bathroom I only lost a pound  :( I was really hoping  for at least two pounds then I would have reached my first stone award - still there is always next week !

Here is my card for our Tag Challenge over at I ♥ promarkers  which is sponsored by Digi doodle shop I used  the all wrapped up image .I made the ribbon and bow from strips of paper coloured with Pms , I added the silver dots to it with  foil and quickie glue

Hello , long time no postie !

It seems like ages since I last posted , I have missed a couple of challenges that i design for -willow sketchie and i ♥ promarkers .Shortly after my mojo disappeared I managed to catch a tummy bug which left me really poorly all of last week , I have recovered now and have managed to catch up with  some of my blogging and cardmaking duties .
I did manage to see some of my cards on tv  last week , but mainly just fleeting glimpses of them ,I did manage to get a mention by Deano tho' so i 'm well happy !
I know it's late but here is my card for the I ♥ promarkers challenge I had made it before  I got too poorly

I'm having one of those week's when nothing I make is right , It all seems to be rather lacking in the inspiration dept ,I have had several cards to make and I just sit there for ages looking into space ,hoping to spot my Mojo out there in the ether somewhere.
I had some stupid idea that moving my craft room round would help, but that was on  Tuesday and I still cant see the worktop for stuff that I have no space for .
I have been without my pc for a couple of days too because the leads did nt reach the socket -grrrrr ,I ve been using the little laptop but that's no good for blogging when the pictures you need are in the other PC !

Anyway ,thankfully I had made this one for Willow Sketchie Challenge before  I started on my mammoth removal mission .I have used "Winnie in earmuffs " from the fabby Walter and Winnie CD that is launching on create and craft tv on Monday !
I have made some samples so You may just get to see some of my cards on tv again - It is so exciting !!!

Autumnal colours

I really love the beautiful colours that come with the arrival of autumn , so I really enjoyed making this card for our ♥ promarkers challenge  this week .The challenge is sponsored by Letraset so you could win some promarkers to add to your stash !
 I chose this Mo Manning image  to complement my falling leaves .The leaves are punched from white paper ,coloured with pms and then dusted with perfect pearls ,in rusty tones .

 I chose to make this as a stepper card because as soon as I saw  the sketch ,a stepper card sprang to mind.I tried to do a flat card ,but nothing would come !
The image is from the fabulous new CD from Willow Sketchie which is due to be launched on Create and Craft TV on October 17 th

Spooky Time !

As Halloween is approaching we have decided to go for a Spooky  theme for this weeks I ♥ promarkers challenge .
I don't usually send cards for Halloween so  used this image to make a card for a Birthday instead .It is kind of spooky ! it is  from Digishack

I cut the word Boo from chipboard and triple embossed to give the enamelled look , I have added foiling to the cobwebs on the candlestick but they dont show too well in the photograph . I came up with the sentiment myself after  struggling for ages to find something suitable and failing .His eyes are also glazed for extra dimension
