Ali and Chez

Hi crafty friends

Today I'm sharing my make for the Sheepski Designs Facebook Group Challenge.

Why not enter our challenge its Anything Goes with a Sheepski design, its right here in the group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1730005463906336/?ref=br_tf

I'm using Ali and Chez, (don't you just love that name) a little bit of Wonderland for you. I love Alice in Wonderland and the lovely Andrea drew this image especially for me. How awesome is that?!

The Cheshire Cat is famous for its ability to appear and disappear at will and for its enormous grin. In fact, sometimes the entire Cat disappears, leaving only the grin behind. The most important thing the Cat does is tell Alice that everyone in Wonderland is crazy – even her. Yeah sound like place you know to....?

Lady of the Roses

Hi Moonflower Fans,

Its time for a new release from our lovely Andreia at Moonflower Digi Stamps. This beauty is Lady of the Roses.
Just look at that hair and all those beautiful roses. She'd make a great wedding card. Pity I don't know anyone that getting married, we're all to old now LOL!!

You can find her here at the store
https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/528136770/lady-of-the-roses?ref=shop_home_active_1

I've coloured her with copics and added a pretty floral paper which I distressed together with a bit of embossing on the background card. I cut her out with a die cut from Tonic and added some flowers from my crafty stash.


This month  as well out Andreia is the artist being used in the Kit & Clowder Create and Learn Classes. Yipee Doo! That means I get to colour her images twice.
Here's the info direct from Alyce at Kit & Clowder together with the image for the pencils class that I'm going to be doing. 

Our brand new Online Colouring Class for pencils is here! 
Join me to colour and learn over at www.kitandclowder.com
(suitable for beginners to advanced colourists - see below)
.
Do techniques like big hair and folds make you a little nervous? Don't worry - in this month's class feat. MoonFlower Digital Stamps we will be breaking everything down step by step, right back to the basics to help you learn with more complex images. Classes are all about teaching fundamentals that take time and practice, and you are not expected to perfect these straight away. Let's do this together (I'm always available for free one on one tutoring) and help you feel more confident tackling these techniques for all of your stamps/colouring books and images

The Princess of Tea

Hi crafty buddies,

Sharing with you today a new release from the lovely Julia Spiri. This whimsical image is the Princess of Tea, . There are so many lovely little details including cake (my fav) macarons, sweeties and strawberries. Its just adorable.

Wow loads of scrummy Hello Kitty themed goodies and so many we couldn't eat it all. The other great one was The Ritz for my 50th birthday with a glass of bubbly to of course and the lightest scones ever, just like little clouds.

  • The iron in the Eifel Tower expands in the summer making it grow by more than 6 inches.
  • Summer is the by far the busiest time at movie theaters in the USA and Hollywood always hopes to earn a significant portion of total annual ticket sales through summer blockbuster months. To date, the top 10 most famous summer blockbusters of all time are 1) Jaws, 2) Star Wars, 3) Jurassic Park, 4) The Dark Knight, 5) Raiders of the Lost Ark, 6) E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, 7) Forrest Gump, 8) Ghostbusters, 9) Animal House, and 10) Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
  • The month of June was named after either Juniores, the lower branch of the roman Senate, or Juno, the wife of Jupiter.
