Happy Easter Geoffrey!

Sorry the pictures but I had to take them quick before putting them in their decorated envelopes!  As you all know, I don't have a table to craft on at the moment, so I had to make these on my bed!  What do you think??

I spent many hours folding up the small ribbons and carefully putting them around the circle here.  For my first attempt I think they look OK.  The images are downloads, and I coloured them with my Promarkers.

I had some Nesties left in my little box so used them inside the circles of paper.  I cut them using my freebie scissors from a craft magazine a while back.  I wasn't sure how good they would be but they cut it OK and I managed to line them all up too.

Card candy and some gems and stickles made them more bling-tastic as they say!


PS. Promarkers - what do you do when they dry out?  I've had mine since Christmas and some of them have dried out already.  I honestly thought they'd last longer than this, but they haven't.  How long do yours last before drying out????

Chloe and Jimmy - Cuteness Overload!

 Here's Litle Chloe, all dressed up and ready to play!  Thanks Di for making my images into cards already - I'm really impressed and they look so good.
Now I know how good they can look, I'll definitely be creating more for you, so keep following me and you'll find more "Little Cuties" to add to your collections!

Perhaps others would like to add to the Link in the Chloe and Jimmy posts - come on and join in - you know you want to!

Fab Freebie - Meet Chloe


Jimmy and Chloe have now been retired. 
I was disappointed that only one person made cards with them, perhaps you might like to share your cardmaking talents with me and others next time instead.

Fab Freebie!


Whilst my cardmaking stash is packed away, I had a 'lightbulb moment' and wondered if my drawings might be good enough for a digi image.

So meet Jimmy - if you think he's good enough to be a digi image, leave me a comment and I'll scan in some others I've done.

If you think he's good enough, I'd love to see any cards you make, and hopefully inlinkz has worked below, so add your link and I can share him with everyone!

Like a kid in a sweetshop!!!!  Sorry about the exclamation marks in this post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some more that such a word...?!?!?!

I've been colouring like mad lately, I'm hoping to be able to make them into cards soon.  Keeping fingers and everything else crossed!

Hope you like my little girl, she's been coloured with PM's (as if you didn't know LOL!).  Again, quite simple, but colourful.

Another Getting Older Card...

Here's the second one I made, with restricted stash.  I'm working on getting something sorted so I can craft to my hearts content, but at the moment, everything is going against me.  I won't give up though and will persevere with it!  Like a dog with a bone, says my brother, how kind brothers are huh!

Getting Older

I had to make cards for two friends having 'big number' birthdays and here's the first one.  I didn't have much craft stuff out at the time so had to use what was to hand, hence the simplicity of it.  Of course, I had to make it a fun card due to the 'big number'...!

Wow - what a response!

Thank you all SO much for leaving me comments about Little Jimmy!  I've had over 1300 hits on him, and over 50 of you wonderful crafters have taken the time to leave me a message to say you liked him. 

I'll now get on with scanning some more of my little drawings and hope to see some of your finished cards with my images on soon!

Thanks for making my day :-)
