Welcome- Enter for Fun and Excitement.....


Time nearly got away from me with this entry into the Make it Crafty  Challenge. I have had this coloured for a while and just realized that the comp finished in a day so I thought I had better get this on my blog, toot sweet......
I am entering this into the Make it Crafty 1st Birthday Celebration- Category 5- use the logo colours, Blue, Mustard/Yellow and Brown to colour an image.
I have teamed Rosie to School from Make it Crafty- I just adore this lil gal , such a fun image to colour and Door to Life from Tiddly Inks to make my card.
Rosie is on a school excursion to visit Zoe's Make it Crafty Shop and too see what goes on behind the scenes.
mmmm..... maybe Rosie will get a sneak peek of some new images !!!!
Images were coloured with Copics, Spica Pens and a brad for the door knob. Oh... and a little pearl for Rosie's earring.
I have left this card quite Clean & Simple with no extra clutter,lol....a little unusual for me....
I found a few other challenges to enter ..
2sisters Challenge- Anything goes
Papercutz Challenge- Anything goes

Butterfly Kisses

Yes...... I,m back. I have recently moved house to a suburb a little further out, Currambine to be exact and just 2 mins from Rhiannon and John and my gorgeous grandson Ayce.
WOW.... what drama is to be had when you build a new house. I have had tradesman in and out for the past 2 weeks, carpet layers, TV men, security doors, the list goes on....... they tell you a time and then either don't come or turn up hours late...grrrrrrrr and yes NO INTERNET!!! darn telstra...
Today I have more tradesman arriving,did not finish the job on Friday and I really need my heating - I,m soooo not good with the cold, plus having the flu for the past few weeks has not helped the situation as well.
I am still finding my way and starting to settle in after being in my old house for 27 years it feels very strange, plus the old house has lots of wonderful memories from the kids as they spent there childhood, teenage and adult years there.
We have decided to keep it and see what happens a bit further down the track- hard to part with, plus I had the most wonderful neighbours that I will miss.
I have a craft room in the new house but I miss the little bar nook that I had in a corner in the lounge room-need to find my mojo that I left behind and some adjusting to do I think..may take a little while.
Anyways enough waffling and onto my card...thank goodness I made this before I left Kingsley...

Here is another Fabulous Digi Image from Bizzy Bec,s Blue Butterfly Range, Butterfly Sweethearts Collection and is called
"POPPY"
  she is soooo pretty.
The  swirly, wonderful leafy flourish is also from Bizzy Bec"s along with the sentiment.
The paper behind Poppy was made from serviettes and this one was kindly given to me from a gorgeous lady called Janet. She showed our crafting group how to make them and I think we all rushed out to get some serviettes altough I have yet to sit down and make....
Well off to get ready for another day of tradesman, hope you all have a great week and...
