Rudolph Day Feb, 2015

It is Rudolph Day again over at Scrappymo's and this is my February card.

Sorry about the photo but try as I may I couldn't get one to look right.
Stamp - Woodware - Holly Ring
The backing card is red as you can see on the left side.
I have used cream card, for a change and don't really like it.
The colouring looks dreadful on the photo but it isn't IRL.
I have embossed the image, coloured with Promarkers and then sprayed it with Spray and Sparkle.


Thanks for looking and just a note for those of you who are Playmates, Iggy's snoring is getting on my nerves, and it doesn't help with Chris joining in as well.
I know it is going to upset a lot of people but I really am going to have to re-think his future. (Iggy's that is, not Chris's)

The colour Purple


This weeks challenge at Allsorts is to use the colour Purple.
Not a colour I use very often, no idea why.
The photo is rubbish, can't get my head round this at all.

Image is Woodware - Boxed Daisy Trio, who'd have guessed that.
I have used Promarkers - Purple and Lime green.
Bow die - Sue Wilson
The backing card,  is very old from Craftwork Cards and matches perfectly, couldn't believe it, sentiment also old stuff from C.C. and is placed perfectly, not like the photo shows.
Pearls been hanging around for ages and coloured with Purple Promarker.
The DP, unfortunately I have no idea and this piece is all I have left of it.
I have raised the image with sticky pads, hence the shadow down the left, it is a card not to be posted.

I have also put a little bit of purple glitter glue on the centre of the flowers as they looked a bit flat, doesn't show as purple on this photo.

So the backing paper and the DP are snippets so the only thing to do is head off to the Playground, think we have a dog now, hope Di has her Poop Scoop at the ready.

Thanks for looking and would love to hear your thoughts.

Snippets Playground week 163

This isn't the actual card I was going to post but that has been lost in the wonderful world of iPhoto 

Image, papers LOTV 
Chipboard letters and numbers covered with snippets of the papers,
snippet of SU ribbon
Corner die - Macarena - Memory Box
Spellbinders shaped die, actually borrowed from my Sister years ago, tip there for you
"Don't lend me anything"
Bow and gems been hanging around my craft room for ages.
Another card using a shaped card that I am on a mission to use.
Not a good photo and can't really blame the weather, but due to the fact I haven't got my head round using the new system, I am a prime example of the saying 'You can't teach an old dog, new tricks'

That's the boring bit covered and those of you who do not visit the Playground can leave now.

Surprise, surprise, I have been on holiday and I have brought back a fabulous pet, or playmate for Parsnip, once I have I have got Iggy used to the climate and decided on what food he likes here in the UK and I can find a carrier willing to transport him (or her, not sure about sexing Iguana's) he/she will be winging it's way to the Playground, this will be Parsnips lucky day, a late Christmas present.

Thanks for looking and I can assure those of you who think I have lost the plot, there are many of us about, and I hope very soon to post a photo of Iggy, when he has recovered from Jet lag.
