Goodbye Madde


Hi Friends, no card today but I just wanted to share this picture of my beautiful wonderful dog
" MADDE"
 of just under 14 years who died  this morning , very unexpected and I was just not ready, but her poor old heart gave out on her.
When we get these dogs they become such a part of your family that their leaving has so much impact.
 She was the most loyal, friendliest, lovable, remarkable dog who always sat under my feet when I was crafting/creating that it will seem strange her not being there.
 Miss you Madde girl, crafting will not be the same without you.

Who's been.....


Hi Everyone, sometimes its nice just to have a creative play and that's what I did with this.
I found these digi images called "Dilly Beans Images" and I love em!!! in fact recently I have found a few digi image sites with some real quirky images that I have just had to have..... must be that other strange side coming out in me!!!
 As you have read a few times lately I have decided to get back to making my own papers and generally just getting  a little messy and dirty with inks, paints and other mediums as I want to have a try at creating an "art journal" as well as being able to add lots of interesting textures to my cards.
These Alice in wonderland images were great to colour and I added a few extra elements as in tree and leaves stamped and inked onto book pages, taking B/W paper and changing the colour and adding other stamps, plus I even  did some doodling around the edge just  for some fun.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges
Forever Night Challenge-Mysterious Findings
Creative Card Crew - Anything goes
By the Cute and Girly- All things Bright and Beautiful
Squiggle Stamps- Halloween

These images and others are available at Bizzy Becs store for $2.00 each untill the 31st October'
I have been into making my own background papers lately and here is another one using Distress inks, various stamps and embossing , a bit of paper peicing for her dress and gloves, burlap and belnding solution for the wings, cuttlebug di hearts  and that wonderful quote, well that is from the Addams Family.
I loved that series when I was a kid and  confess I still do- so quirky and so amusing, I dont ever think there will be anything quite like this ever again. This quote came from  Wednesday Addams.
