Happy Birthday Mitch

Monday was my middle child Mitch's Birthday, he turned 12 boy how the years fly!
This post is a few days late, but no I didn't forget his birthday, I just couldn't post it before as he is one of my biggest fans, and checks Mum's blog for updates, and if he would have seen the card before we gave him his pressie it may have given it away...
because we got him a Siamese Fighting Fish,  He has named it Sid and he loves it that much I have to check at night it is still in its tank, as I am sure he would take it to bed with him if he could.
Any way here is a quick peep at my handsome little (oopps Big I should say) 12 year old....
 So Happy Birthday Mitch, I know you had a great day!! Now we just have to do the roller skating thing over the holidays (ohhh my poor bottom).

First Digi Stamp

I don't know why it has taken me so long to jump on Digi stamp band wagon, but now I have I think I am hooked, it is such a cheap way to get your images.
This is the very first one I purchased. It is from KennyK downloads.
I have coloured her with my copic markers, which I am off now to order some more, (so addictive!! they are dangerous!!) lol.
 Sorry about the picture with the funny little lines on it, but it is very windy out side so I had to shot it inside and believe it or not the lines are from the fly screen on the window, but it is the only bit of sun I could find.
I have backed her with some Blueberry Crisp DSP from Stampin' Up! and used More mustard, Night of Navy and Riding Hood red.
Any way off to buy those copics...
Happy Stamping!

ColorLab Color Challenge #45

I don't know about where you are but boy have we been cold!! In fact too cold for me to even venture to my craft room which is a little too far away from our fire, I tried one day and my hands were so cold I literally could not tie a piece of ribbon in half, But it has warmed up a little during the days so I cranked up my  little heater (which did not cut it a few days ago let me tell you!) and I have finally created! Yeah!
This weeks colours at the ColorLab are way to bright for me, so I thought it was great for a challenge,
Here are the colours...
See what I mean very bright Hey??
But that's what we surf the challenge sites for... A challenge...
And here is what I came up with...
As soon as I seen these colors I knew I wanted to finally ink up my Cup cakes from PTI,
I have even added some glitter! (shock horror for me!) I have also used Mat Stack collection #4 from PTI.
Well I am off to colour my first Digi stamp, will be back tomorrow to show you.
Till then
Happy stamping

I also need to add some babies and kids cards to my stash, so this is what I came up with, Sorry its not a real good picture, taken to late in the day, I think it is supa cute how about you?
I have used Bashful blue and Certainly celery along with whisper white.
Enjoy the rest of your day

Try Stampin' on Tuesdays #17

Finally blogger is being nice to me! even letting me leave some comments around the ridges.
I have had a little time this morning at my desk so I thought I would play along with some challenges,
This week the sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesdays looks like this...
Now I have decided its time to visit some stamp sets I have been neglecting lately, so the mission is on to blow off the dust and and let them live again, and the first to see daylight was Fifth Avenue Floral....
I really do like this set but got a little bored with it, but now I have brought it to life again with my new copic markers, I have used R20,R32,R35 and R37  I love the shading affect they give.
I have also used a little sentiment from Teeny tiny sentiments, I have inked my embossing folder on some soft suede and used a little Espresso, If you have any questions just flick me an email.
Better be off to do the dreaded house chores now since this is my first day home all week and will be out all weekend.
Happy stamping

Bright and Fun!

Today I have a very bright and fun card I made, I thought these colours would pick up the feel in the old craft room....
I am really happy with it, yeah!! I think that mojo is slowly making its way back...
It's hard to see but I have sprayed the flower with smooch spritz to make it sparkle! along with the colours of Melon mambo Tangerine tango and old olive. The greeting is from PTI Big bold wishes stamp set.

Well off to the hairdresser now with full intentions of going short,  but I have said this the last two visits and always chicken out!! but I think its time for some changes!!

Back soon
