Sugar Nellie book card

Hi just a quick one from me today.  Just wanted to show a book card which my mum asked me to make for her friend's 50th birthday.  I followed the fab sketch over at The Sugar Bowl and used Daisy coloured with copics. 

A quick view of the card when opened. 

I would like to enter this into The Sugar Bowl challenge.

Right thats it from me, told you it was a quick one.  Got to go and pick up my son from footy practice so better dash.

Catch you later everyone.  Take care.

My first Christmas creation for this year!!

WARNING:-  AN EXTREMELY PHOTO HEAVY POST!!!!! (so grab a cuppa and a choccy bar)

Hi folks, I am so ticked off I have been trying to upload my piccies on this post all day and at last it has decided to play ball.  Anyway, what I wanted to show you is my first Christmas project of this year which is an exploding box.  I haven't made one of these for a long time.  I went with a pink/purple/grey colour theme and lots of Tildas.  All have been coloured with a mixture of copics and prismacolor pencils and tons of stickles

First up a couple of the outside.

Next up an overall picture of what its like when open.

Now for a couple of closer views.

Okay, if you are still with me you deserved that choccy bar.  I really enjoyed doing this one but I think it is reserved for someone really special as it took me a few days to complete. 

I would like to enter this into a few challenges:-

Right thats it from me for today.  I think I am going to go and dig out the Christmas films so I can watch whilst I am crafting and really get in the Crimbly spirit as I am once again so so behind.

Take care, happy crafting.


Look at what my hubby made me!!!!

Hi all, just a quick one from me on this most glorious Sunday morning, it really is beautiful outside today and the kiddies are out making the most of it.  Anyway just wanted to pop on here and show you what my fabtastic hubby decided to make me.  I think he got fed up of all my pens lying around everywhere and me bleating on about how useful it would be to have somewhere to store them all.  I showed him a few piccies from some I'd seen around, all very lovely but quite pricey.  Anyway he took a few measurements and off he went to his garage and voila a day later and I have this and I just love it.  Its exactly what I was after.  Its only made out of 12 mm MDF and my hubby says its not perfect as it was all hand cut and not machine cut but its perfect to me.  I will be decorating it and make it look all pretty but I just couldn't wait to get my pens in.

Please excuse the tiles hanging off the wall behind but we cleared out the small room downstairs that used to be our old kitchen before we moved it and it has yet to be decorated.  It will be my own craft room YIPPEE no more crafting on the kitchen table!!! I feel a trip to Ikea coming on but I think that will be something for the new year. 

Anyway, folks I hope you are enjoying your Sunday.  Take care.

P.S. I would love to know how to tweak my photos and perhaps make them bigger.  Any tips would be most appreciated.
