A dog, maybe?!)  Go HERE if you'd like to download it! Don't forget! No sharing anywhere, just save to your computer. A comment would be lovely. Why not tell me what colour you'll make him?

Quirky Well Put A Stamp On It!

Hi guys! Yes I know, I'm late again. (Shhh! Don't think anyone noticed!) No camera, no printer and no time!! Never mind, I'm here now to tell you all about The latest Quirky Crafts Challenge, which started on Sunday Evening.
It's Cazzy's turn to set the theme and she has come up with... Use a postage stamp: an image of a postage stamp, posties, postage stamp dies, punches,  letters etc etc... Looking at the other DT members fabulous cards and creations, basically, think anything  we use for writing...(It's wot people did before emails!)
Here's my card...added to the Challenge page late Monday night. I've used "Letters Home" and a few postcard images "Postcard set 2"
   from our Sponsors, Stitchy Bear.
I've 3D-ed her, just a little bit, so she pops out and gives a bit of a shallow around all those letters she's not writing! I coloured her with ProMarkers, then used some of the post cards (made them very small) along with some punched out stamp shapes to frame the image..I've left it blank at the moment. Might add a sentiment later. 
The paper's I've used are called, Prima Botanical Collection; a 6x6 freebie paper stack from Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine some time back. They also came with a stamp set too....wonder where it is!?!
I cut the white 8x8 card blank a little larger than the 6x6 papers so I didn't lose any of the background pictures; stamps, letters and other scribblings. Also punched out a few stamps shapes and some images from the papers too, just to fill up some space around the digi and also inside the card.
The inside, I've left with out any wording, I've just added more of the same papers. That's it for now... thank you for stopping by even when I've not here! If I find time I will definitely love to add this to some ...

Cooking Up Something Quirky (with ribbons!)

Aw yes... I know...I'm late again. (It's 2.30 Monday morning!) But by now you know I'm always late! New Challenge time over on Quirky Crafts has already started, so get yourselves over there to see what it is and have a look at what everyone's made! 
It's Cazzy's turn to set the theme and it's all about cooking! Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and  Crafty Ribbons are our sponsors, so some yummy prizes up for grabs!
Here's my card. I've used 'My Little Cook'  from Robyn's Fetish, I turned her round to face the other way, printed her out a few times...(yes, my printer's been eating my paper again!) so I could 3D her, which came in handy as I picked up the wrong colour for her face.... so just 3D-ed another one over it! (Should've made her a wobble head!) 
Freebie Papers are from a crafty mag, if I can find a link I'll add it later. The 'sweet' sentiment was also part of a freebie recipe set from a crafty mag. 
The bunny cup-cake ribbons were  from Crafty Ribbons one Easter, I won them and still have loads of bunny ribbons left, fabulous! (Well, if you put two bunnies together....) I've also added  Diamond and Xmas Red Stickles Glitter. 
Inside, I've made the image  smaller and used her facing the way she usually is and printed her out with a sentiment using a freebie font (free on most sites) called Violeta Crumble, just google the name. I've also covered up a few smudgie bits were my printer started eating my paper.... (honestly, feed it cheese sandwiches and it's still hungry!) with words cut from other papers in the set. That's it for now, must go...I'm gettng up in a minute!! Hope to add this to some ...
Challenges (later)

A Quirky Cat, a link to freebies and Belated Birthday Wishes Les!

At Last, here I am with my third DT card for the Quirky Crafts Challenge. Oriental is the theme. So come and join in!
I started off with a cream pearl card 5x7 300gsm by docrafts Papermania.  I've used, along with one of their sentiments, 'Happy Birthday', Mewshu Pork cat from Squigglefly 
The Pussy cat's been 3D-ed, but only a little bit this time. One of him has no tail and the last layer is just his bowl. I've printed him over some Chinese dragon paper I had, onto some smooth heavy weight card that isn't supposed to bleed when using Promarkers, but his legs went a bit South...or maybe I mean North! Well, I guess if you use enough Promarker ink it's gonna bleed no matter what. Never mind! He's 'supposed' to look like that!
The backing papers I found later they're called Cherry Blossom. I just had to use them. They were freebies from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine ages back and have an Oriental feature of flowers and fans. You can still find them HERE! Always worth a visit for freebie papers!  My tip is to print them on the best printer paper you have at least 120 to160 gsm,  (not on 80 to 90 copy paper, it's a waste of ink!!!))
Anyway, I must have printed them out when I first downloaded them (When my old printer was working and black printed out black, even with cheaper ink!)  as they were printed on the heavier smoother paper I can no longer buy and were fabulous. (I had to stroke them for ages before I could cut into them!)
I've added peel-offs; they look like brads don't they!?! These all came from  Create & Craft years ago too! I had loads, about 50 packets all with an Oriental theme. (So glad I found them!) These ones you can sew into, but I didn't have time for that.
 At the moment I've left the inside blank but covered with the matching papers, will fill it in when I send it off to Les, (John's step Dad) who's birthday card it is.  He always said my old cat, Gizmo, looked Chinese, so I knew this card was meant for him! And in the past, he's popped in to feed Mr Jinx when we've been away...I hope it wasn't Chow Mein!  Happy Belated Birthday Les! That's it for now, thank you for stopping by!!

An Oriental Quirky Challenge Reminder.

I'm back to remind you all about Quirky Crafts Latest Challenge organised by Monica. She would love to see some Oriental Creations! My late last weeks make was a lovely image from East Wind. I added it to the post as my Quirky Crafts  DT card but, things weren't as I hoped they would be. I'd run out of all my ice grey Promarkers, so couldn't colour the extra bits and do a bit of decoupage 3D-ing, and I couldn't find some things I wanted to add to the card but anyway!! Here it is, finshed!
I'm not sure it's worth the wait! I think the hair is a lot better with the blend of Ice Greys. I've 3D-ed it using thicker card that's not ment to 'bleed'. There's about four layers, five if you count the book, which I also changed the colour of,  then used the same colour for the fans.
Hunted for ages to find those fans! (I must tidy my craft room!) added that little tag and put a fan inside the card too. Not a lot of change but I think it makes a lot of difference.
There's still a week left to come and join in over on Quirky Crafts. I'll be adding another card later. It's a cat! Thank you for stopping by!!
