Hi Everyone, my card today is for the Outlawz Sketch challenge and the Twisted Thursday "Make Something Funny" well it gives a smile!

I used ready coloured cat and mouse and added paw paper by Laurie Furnell, which I had at PC Hugware a long time ago. The girl and cat is from Dearie Dolls, that I digitally coloured to match the centre image, the "meow" paper is an overlay from Pixelscrapper. The girl and mouse on the ball are 3D'd.

Scrapbook page

Hi Everyone, you know I don't usually do scrapbook pages, but occasionally something comes up and I find it something I have to do. Today I have a photo of my Mum, taken days before she had a small stroke and went into hospital in February 2004, she never came out, she had a fatal stroke and died in the April aged a wonderful 91. She is with the eldest of her grandchildren. I enlarged the photo for the centre panel and used blending options of "luminosity" and opacity of 42% .
 Of course you know what means LOL.

The papers are the current Dragon Lair Sunday Showcase freebie kit. Girlz World. It's a digital layout with a template by Our Misadventures.

Just Chickin' on you!

Hi Everyone the challenge at The Male Room is

I have gone for something I think is quite different, for me anyway, to match with the red and blue. I chose beige!

I coloured and paper pieced the chicken in PS. I added chicken wire behind him, I did a print and cut on the Cameo of the the shaped circle and extra layers of the chicken, wings, beak, wattle and comb, adding an off cut to make them sticker like.  I did a play on words with the sentiment. I added embossing to the red paper and a little heart to the check paper. Hope you like my unusual colour combo.

The digital stamp chicken was a freebie by Heartily Farm at Cuddly Buddly 
Heart die was a freebie from a magazine
chicken wire is from Pixelscrapper
I think the paper is from Pixelscrapper 
For some reason I didn't save the file, except in my Silhouette files and that doesn't tell me who designed the papers or the circle shape.  I could kick myself. Sorry.

Christmas card with different colours

Hi Everyone my card today is using the FREEBIE "Scents of Christmas" Card Kit from the Miss Daisy Stamps . I'm afraid the freebie was only until the 18th, but may be still available if you want to visit and see! My card was a last minute make.

Using the papers and following a sketch I coloured the bird and holly in PS. I added Nuvo silver glitter around the edge and Cosmic Shimmer glitter jewels on the cap and around the sentiment. It has a lovely sparkle in real life. Very different colours to what I would normally make, but I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

Duck and joke

Hi Everyone, my card today is for the Outlawz Sketch Challenge, I have just made it!, where does the week go? Anyhow, here is the magnificent Mitzi, I haven't used one of these images for YEARS and I love them all. I cut and print her and the wonderful Dearie Dolls lipstick image on the Cameo, I followed the sketch and added a joke I saw in a newspaper recently, I had to use it somewhere and this was it. LOL. Both were ready coloured images. I layered the papers onto black card.

Mitzi Duck PC Hugware no longer available.

Dragonslair card

Hi Everyone my card today is made for Dragons Lair Designs Facebook Monthly Fan Challenge. The very pretty papers and elements are from the "Spring Medley" Freebie supplied to enter.   I followed a sketch and added the cherry blossom from our garden as a centre piece. I thought it suited the paper colours.

Create with TLC Blog Hop

Here it is the long awaited and anticipated blog hop from the one and only -

Blog Hop
Vintage Vacation

Paulette has given all the DT and us Guest Designers a freebie to play with and for you to have FREE, just click on the image below my card, right click and save as, it's a SUPER image such fun, don't you just love all those little images and links to the State?
The closest I've been, is knowing a wonderful West Virginian gentleman who is now 97, we have sent Christmas cards and occasional letters to one another each year for 30 years, after meeting him when we had a small hotel.

It wasn't until after thinking about what to do with this image I thought of all the things that would have sent me to Virginia, SO, if I had gone what would I have bought as a memento that would fit into my case and be enjoyed for a few, if not many years. (If I hadn't lit it LOL). This is what I would have bought. I coloured the image digitally and used the State colours of blue and gold. I hope I have done it and the State justice.
