Feeling Crafty

I was in the mood for a bit of crafting today and I had some digi images all ready for me to colour in.  So I got out my trusty promarkers and had a go.  Unfortunately I am having a numb phase at the moment and I cannot feel my hands!  It made for interesting colouring to say the least.  Finding it quite hard to grip a pen at the moment and my fingers keep locking!  I am really hoping that this passes soon as I hate being restricted as to what I can do :(  I even struggled to cook tea last night and most of it ended up on the floor.  However this might be a good excuse to get out of the cooking!  Well here is my effort for the day and yes it was a major effort but I am pleased with it:

There is no sentiment on it yet as I like to wait until I know who its going to before I do that.  Might try some more crafting this evening once the kids are in bed as hubby is away with work again :( I have some images that I have already coloured (below) that are waiting to become a card.  Thanks for popping by xx

My First Digi page!!

Oh wow - how much fun are digi scrapbook pages!  I blame you Tracy (in a good way of course) after you told me about the free Daisytrail sample for Craft Artist!  Ohh you are right this could become very addictive :)  So here it is:

I thought this layout (one that came with the freebie) was great and summed up my three little monsters perfectly.  The top picture was my son hiding under his sisters bed waiting to scare her.  I get the feeling that there will be loads more of these coming your way.  Thanks for dropping by I would love to hear your comments please xx

Father's Day

With it being Father's Day on Sunday the theme over at Craft Punked this week is... yup father's day :)  The challenge this week is sponsored by Bugaboo and I have used their images on my DT card this week:

I have coloured the image using promarkers to match the colour in the backing paper which is DCWV.

Sorry this is going to be a short post from me as its Thursday evening and I have an operation on my knee to prepare for tomorrow (Friday)  Hope you like my card and find the time to enter the challenge.  Thanks for popping by xx

Promarker Daft

I have been busy, busy colouring in the last few days whilst hubby has been working away from home.  I was lucky enough to grab hold of the 100+ digis that Pollycraft were doing in a bundle as part of her closing down sale.  I hope that she will come back to doing digi's as they are fab.  Here are some of the images I have been colouring:

There is something very relaxing about colouring and it passes the time very quickly and I now have a number of images ready to go in case I get asked for a card at short notice.

As this is only 3 out of the 100+ images that I bought I have a few more to be playing with ;)

I hope to be back soon with cards that I have made from these images.  Thanks for popping by xx

Craft Punked is live!!

Good morning - its ffffffffriday yippeee :)  This week seems to have gone so quickly, which I am really pleased about as my hubby has been working away from home :(  Its also been a hard week with the kids and will be so glad to have another adult in the house :D

Well Glitter Geeks has now changed its name to Craft Punked.  Not quite sure why the change of name but I love it and the new blog is fab :)  Everything is pretty much remaining the same and there will still be a weekly challenge which this week is all about Birthday's.  An easy one for the first as Craft Punked.  If you want to have a go at the challenge you will find it here.  Why not pop over and have a look at the new blog and follow to keep updated on the challenges.

I decided for my card this week that I was going to do a male themed card.  I always find it hard to make cards for men and I think that its probably because a lot of the images do not inspire me.  However, I recently won a competition on facebook and was lucky enough to get a $10 voucher to spend at Kenny K where I bought the image on this card:

I coloured the image with promarkers and the papers are from DCVW Boys paper stack.

The other images I got were these beauties:

I am having great fun colouring them, but I am still trying to find the best card for the job.  Most of the card I am using seems to bleed quite a lot :(  but I am determined to find the perfect one :D

Well that's it for me today.  Thanks for popping by and I hope you join us at Craft Punked for out first competition.

Good morning - well its Friday again, which can only mean one thing.....its challenge time over at The Glitter Geeks  This weeks challenge is all about Superhero's and here is my DT card - hope you like it :)

The Batman image and the backing papers were both downloaded free from google.  I have printed the batman image twice and coloured it using black and the cool grey collection of promarkers.  I cut around the mask and layered it to give a little bit of dimension.  The sentiment was created using Word and a little bit of Word Art.  With a little bit of matting its done :) So once I had sourced the images it did not take too long at all.

Well that's it for me today - need to go an get myself pretty as my hubby is taking me out for our belated anniversary meal!!  It takes a while so if I start now I might just look ok for this evening :D

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
