Feeling blue!

This was one of my first samples for Crafter's Companion. I have to say it's been a very steep learning curve and I've felt completely out of my depth!! I used the new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens on this one :-) As I mentioned on Facebook, I had no skin colours so I was a little panicked until I found all these fabulous digi images at Buddly Crafts.
I had a lot of brown pens, so trees featured quite a lot in my makes :-) !!!
I hope you've had a great weekend. Thank you for stopping by. Jayne xx

Mama Christmas!

I got to play with this fabulous Stampendous Mama Christmas stamp yesterday and I am totally in love! She is just fabulous :-) I also had my first go with Spectrum Noir markers. I have such a long way to go with the pens but at least I've made a start!
I used the Crafter's Companion Sara Signature Contemporary Christmas papers. They are such a pretty collection of papers using all my favourite colours.
Aww, can't wait to colour her again :-)

Thank you for stopping by! Hugs, Jayne

My Besties UK Challenge Same But Different

This month over at My Besties UK our challenge is Halloween/Anything Goes :-) Today is the day for our Same But Different Challenge where the DT all make cards with the same image. I love to see how the girls have used the images; it always amazes me how different our cards turn out :-)

I really loved this months image but I struggled for a long while with colouring the hair!
I loved her so much I even used my Maja Design papers!!
Aww, she is super pretty :-) The link to this digi can be found here.

Thank you for stopping by. Jayne xx

Use Sepia Tones at Crafty Ribbons

This week over at Crafty Ribbons our challenge is to use Sepia Tones. I have to say I had a mini meltdown until lovely Lucy told me to just use brown!! Hahaha. Bless her - total meltdown averted!

I went with theses LOTV papers with one of my favourite LOTV images :-)
I've used some of the lush new Christmas Doodle ribbon (Merry Kiss-mas) which I think finishes the card off nicely.
I hope that you get a chance to join us - it's not as scary a challenge as it first appears ;-)

Thank you for all your well wishes for my Gran. They made 'em tough in the old days :-) We're taking a day at a time but she is looking sooo much better. We're trying to sort out various bits of care but it's a total nightmare and how people cope on their own is a mystery. The way the government treats the old and vulnerable is absolutely shameful and I've been utterly shocked by the whole episode. Anyhoo, I shall get off my soap box and see you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by xxx

Drawer card

Here's an easel drawer card I had the ladies making in Sunday's class.
We used Crafter's Companion 'Contemporary Christmas' papers and a Sweet Dixie Snowman stamp.
Been so busy this week. Trying to divide my time between looking after Gran and finishing my first batch of samples for Crafter's Companion. It looks (fingers crossed) that Grandma is very slowly getting better.
Hope you're having a great week! Hugs, Jayne xx

Another Not So Random Squirrel Challenge :-)

For the next two months over at Squirrel's Not So Random Challenge we are hosting a White plus One Other Colour challenge. Now, before you go running for the hills (as I did) this isn't nearly as tricky as it sounds. You're allowed skin and hair colours :-) And with Christmas coming you could always use a snowman!!!

I've used a sweet Sugar Nellie image sent to me by the lovely Sue Hastead :-) It's the first time I've coloured her up and she's just lovely!
I thought for a dreadful minute I was going to have to go all CAS - but never fear, once I got going there was no stopping those embellishments from piling on :-) Phew!
You've got two months to enter so there's really NO excuse! Sending hugs, Jayne xx
