Octobers Tusal...

... yay I think I'm on time for the first time in months!!!  Here is my Tusal :

Getting fuller!!  Pop to Daffycat to see how everyone else is doing.

I've got a few more letters done on my Gnome Alphabet:

But I've been naughty and started a new project:

Its a pixel design for the Big Bang Theory which we are big fans of here.   I saw the original idea on Stephs blog - who makes the cutest amigurami and lots of other crafty stuff - pop over for a nosy, where she made it into a cushion - so I am afraid I have been totally unorginal and nicked her idea (hope you dont mind :-)), for a christmas present for my eldest.  I then thought I'd do an Avengers one for my youngest and Steph was very helpful in pointing me in the right direction of some patterns - Thank you!!!  These are great to stitch and perfect for beginners plus they only take a night to do a character. I purchased the pattern from Etsy from here if you fancy a nosy.  Fingers crossed I wont be my usual unorganised self and get them finished in time - I hope so, as I am a bit useless in that department - I really dont want them to go into my pile of 'stuff' to be finished off properly - I tell you, I really need to win the lottery this work malarky really plays havoc with my crafting!!!

... just a quick blog of a card make before I go and make a nice coffee:

This was a make for Tom to take to a party of a girl in his class.  The image is an LOTV freebie from a magazine, coloured with promarkers matted onto red card - that have both been die cut, I have then punched more card for the bottom and added a sentiment ticket.  Not sure what make the dp paper is that has again been matted onto red card with a craftwork cards card blank.

I keep looking at tutorials on colouring but still really struggle getting nice effects on hair - will have to do a bit more practising I think - lol!!

Yoo hoo...

... ooh hasnt it been a lovely few days???  I had a great day on Saturday - I went to the GNPE at Harrogate and spent a little bit - why is it when you get home you think of other things you should have got as well - doh!!  Here's a picture of my new stash!!

Managed to pick up a couple of bargains, but just a general top really of  card blanks, card to stamp on, dst, doilies, pro-markers, liquid pearls, Kenny K toppers, corner punch, magazines,crochet flowers and paper packs - err think thats all - I even brought some money home - well that was until I realised what I had forgotten - lol.

Anyhoo, onto a card - I've used some of my new Kaisercraft papers for this one for my sister in law:

I have coloured a  Pink Gem image with pro-markers and distressed the edge of the die cut circle then used my new corner rounder punch on the square paper then added button and twine from my stash.

Not another....

...Monster card.  Yup, sorry about this I seem to have a bit of a monster thing at the moment - lol.  Its my nephews 17th birthday soon and was a bit stumped for ideas for images as he's had rugby, xbox etc so had a  rummage through my images and spotted this cutie patootie:

hmm sorry about the image just noticed it looks a bit washed out???  Anyhoo, he's a Pollycraft image coloured with promarkers and glossy accents added to his spectacle.  I have matted him onto some embossed card and added ribbon, paper and craftwork card sentiment from my stash.
