Dressing up james

 Im in the mood for some spooky fun again and today I went with james from justinklined,he's a cutie
I used some papers from my stash for this one
  Its strange I love making  halloween cards but  have no one to send them to as we dont celebrate it over here in the UK like in the US   and I love the oranges and purples for  halloween  and the spookiness of it  all.
Ahh well..... any way I've used  a fabulous sentiment from the whimsy digi's by Lia to go with this card and some  fab halloween stamps to  go round the edge of the  image.
 I'm  going to try and get some colouring done tonight as I spent 4 hours yesterday trying to  install a new printer OMG it took6attempts to  uninstall the old printers and I still  have one of them on it but crossed fingers its all ok and  up and running now  and wireless so if I do some work on my  laptop it will  print out  lets just  hope  it doesnt go array

Just inklined to share a bit of xmas

  I  finally got time make up some cards from the justinklined Xmas collection.I do like  the  birds at Christmas and Ive  used the robins and blue  tits this time. The foiled edges just give them  that bit of a sparkle and we all need a bit of  sparkle at Christmas. I've kept the outlay simple and as they are die cut they are even more simple to assemble. Ive  used  my Christmas embossed  card stock for the  blue  tit  card and some fabulous  pearlised card for the  robins, a few gems and voila simply Christmas with a bit of  shine.You can get these sheets and  others  from  La Pashe Here

Goodies Used: Justinklined Decoupage sheets, red and white cardstock from stash ,red  gems.

My driving lessons have gone to pot so that need to be sorted,exercise plan is out the window,another to sort out and diet well after B'days comes loads of left over cake and I couldn't just leave it there on its own to go stale(Oopps) So I have a huge list of  things to improve in myself and getting back in my shed  is another
   I should have had  a card for you to see today  but  Ive just  been overwhelmed with work and not had  time to  play at all with crafty bits.Good news though I have the whole weekend to do nothing but play (I need it )

So did you  check out the  new decoupage Jak's been promoting 
what  did  you  think  of the  new digi's this  month

Challenge day woohoo its Wednesday

 Yes its another fabulous day 
on the 

 Ive used one of Crissy's new images for this card as the challenge is love of pets and I had a play with my  new woodware punches too The sentiment is one of Ann's and so speaks to me as I try to feed our chameleon and she just stares at you and then goes to bite you lol.Kids and animals is the phrase that comes to  mind and I work with both so no hope there.
  Oh  and have you all been  using the  new  blogger layout  wow  its a lot friendlier when scheduling posts
I like (until it goes wrong)

 Here's my card I used the Anglia car kit and I must say every time I see these they remind me of the milky way advert 
you know the one "the red car and the blue car had a race"  the only thing wrong with it  is   milky way is just  not chocolate in my eyes  and well   if your going to eat chocolate  you  need to  eat a proper  bar  like  galaxy mmmmmnnnnnnn   anyhow back onto the card I've used copics  
  I could have used the coloured version but I thought I'd  give it ago and  colour it myself
the gears are stamped with brilliance ink and brads added and a sentiment to the spanner.

Phew..... sorry for the disruption folks

 but that's more me simple,blue and with a little flag flying lol. This changing blog templates takes it all out of you choosing the right ones and browsing the net  for one that suits you its a bit like redecorating and getting rid of the junk and things you've outgrown  (wipes dust off hands). So I'm rearranged, reorganized and feeling a whole lot better with the new look. Next room I think will be the living room in the house  its driving me  potty I have some ruthless sorting out to do kids had better beware they may be recycled lol

 So  the card I have for you today is ...

A sweet tree  I coloured it with copics and have been practising my clouds yep I know more practice  I  enjoy that bit though lol 
  so I'm off to do some sorting 
  Catch you laters 

Goodies Used:Whimsy digi image,copics,papers from stash think they are my minds eye and buttons from fantastic ribbons
