Have a little fun!

Good day---time for another Crazy 4 Challenges post!

Since yesterday was Tea Day we are all about Tea.......or we'll even take Coffee if you prefer-as I do.  I love a good cup of tea with my friend but coffee is my go to loveliness haha!

I used the fun fun patterned paper from Craft Smith called Fandango--oh so colourful!

I diecut my Reverse Confetti mugs from the same patterned paper and added a cute little butterfly from Crafter's Companion Die'sire Nature dies.

The sentiment is from Essentials by Ellen - Up the Happy! stamp set.

Thanks for visiting and head over to Crazy 4 Challenges to enter our challenge!!

Good day - I am finally posting our Crazy 4 Challenges post - Blogger seems to be having a childish fit and my posts won't save, but I am going to go ahead and see if it will publish ----ugh, technology!

This week at Crazy 4 Challenges, we have a sketch challenge and I loved putting this one together!

I die cut three rectangles with a small die, and using the Verity Rose stamp set from Crafter's Companion, I stamped the beautiful rose three times onto the Crafter's Companion white watercolour paper.

I watercolored each rose and then added sparkly glitter to each rose.  The sentiment is also from Crafter's Companion as is the Verity Rose patterned paper - love this paper!

Take a boo over to Crazy 4 Challenges and try out the sketch - it's fabulous!!

Easter Egg Decorating Fun!

Good Morning.... I have a fun little video for you today to show you a new way to decorate your Easter eggs!

I'm using my fabulous Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, paper towels, clothes pins and a water mist bottle.  It takes no time at all - except drying time of course.

My first video - be kind lol!

You're the Cream in my Coffee!

I think that is the cutest saying ever!  I had to put it to the test on my coffee card when I was using my new Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers  from Crafter's Companion.

These markers are the easiest to use - just a beautiful flow on your paper and the prettiest colours!

I coloured up this little girl with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers in no time at all and die cut the image.

I coloured the coffee cup, diecut and popped up both of the images onto the patterned paper background.

Take a look at the Crafter's Companion website and see all the pretty goodies!!

A Happy Hello - Crazy 4 Challenges!

Good Morning and welcome to another week of Crazy 4 Challenges!  This week our challenge to you is to use a wild animal in your creation!

I decided to use 3 wild animals - I KNOW! I'm animal crazy this week haha.

To begin, I diecut the smallest square of the Three Metal Die Pack - that is included with the Gemini Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - and stamped the beautiful border die from Crafter's Companion EZ Mount Elements 2 Rubber Stamp Set along the bottom edge of the square.

I coloured that gorgeous foliage using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers in what I think would be jungle colours.

I masked off the image and stamped the three little wild animals from Reverse Confetti as if they were peeking out from the jungle. Cute! I then coloured the animals with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.

I added a few sequins and the Reverse Confetti sentiment.  I still didn't think it popped very much so I took my light grey( IG1) marker and traced around the images.

Take a ride through the jungle over to Crazy 4 Challenges and get out your wild animals!!
