WoooHoo I have a new PC and I am now fit to Go!!!!!,  not only have I been PC less, I have also been away for 5 days on my annual crafting holiday at Crafters Companion FANTASTIC  Craftaganza, had the most amazing time with lots of old friends and even more new friends.  Also had really fantastic workshops with

Sara Davies, Leann Chivers, Sheena Douglass, Sarah Millsop, Claire Hamer and Louisa McLean

I didn’t realise how many techniques there were still left to learn.


I have a couple of cards to show you today first of all an acetate Easel card using one of my favourite Lili of the Valley images, this one is Twinkling Star.



I am really pleased with how this a acetate card has turned out.  The image has been coloured with Copics and has lots of Glamour Dust added,  The two trees are stamped with a Magnolia stamp and Broken China Distress Ink.  The papers are from the new release by Nitwits Collections called  Holiday Charm all lovely Blues Whites Creams and pale Greens yummy!!!!  I have also used the Doo Hickey Swirl available at Dies to Die For



The sentiment is from the Grunge Christmas Postmarks from Lili of the Valley


The Copics used:

Flesh: E11, E21, E000, Hair Y26, Y23, Coat & Hat B00, B000, B0000, Brown E53, E50.


Just a reminder that Lili of the Valley   have 10% off all orders plus free P&P but be quick you just have until 30th November to take advantage of this offer.

Before my PC gave up the ghost I was asked to do some samples for a New Release from Katy Sue Designs (AKA Flowersoft) 

About Mabel Lucie Attwell

I am sure many crafters remember English artist Mabel Lucie Attwell who was a prolific illustrator, famous for her unique ability to reach adults through her drawings of children. Her illustrations appeared on advertisements, postcards, calendars, tins and books and, for many, her images became the back drop of their childhoods from the 30's, 40's and 50's. The humour of day to day situations can be seen in these nostalgic images of children which give them special appeal and guarantee to make you smile.   Katy Sue Designs are releasing a New CD which includes fantastic Digi Images  and also some papercrafting kits, the launch shows will be on Create and Craft on Dec 6th at 10am and 5pm.  Sue has agreed for me to show you some sneaky peeks this week.


Here is the first one using a Digi image and papers from the CD.  I have used Go Kreate Half XXL Circular Dies, the roses were hand made and distress with white paint.  The Pretty Blossoms are from The Ribbon Girl.  I have coloured the images with Crafters Companion Spectrum Noir Pens.


Well its great to be back with you all again and hopefully this is the end to all my techie problems, see you tomorrow
