Sunday 1 February 2015


Good morning and a big welcome to my new followers Erin and Helen, so lovely to see you here! Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post.  Our 'snow' lasted about half an hour so I managed to get out with my Aunt although it was very windy!

Today is the start of a new month so that means a new challenge over at Buckwell's Crafty Challenge and this month our theme is Love/Red so anything with red or love themed will be fine.  Here is my effort:

I have used an image from our sponsor this month Kenny K who kindly gave us an image - thank you!  The image is called Lil Angel and Devil and I had fun colouring it with my Copics and lots of Glamour Dust on the wings.  The papers are digital and are available here from Buckwells in CD form I used Micro Dots and Love Rush. I covered the Love Rush with Little Claire's adhesive glitter sparkle to add some glitz.  I used Martha Stewart PATP heart punch for the border.  The ribbon is also from Buckwells, Bordeaux Organza Ribbon available here.

Here is a better picture showing the glittered paper:

We have some fabulous prizes for the lucky winners:

3 Digis from Kenny K

Two lucky winners will receive 5 sets of Backing Papers from Buckwell Crafts.  The sets are on offer at the moment: buy 4 and get 1 free!

Challenges I would like to enter:

Di's Digi Design - Include a Heart
Fussy and Fancy - Things with Wings
Kitty Bee - Valentine/Love
QKR Stampede - Hearts
Kenny K's - Love

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. We have Dave's daughter, husband and grandchildren coming over for dinner so I have to dash and do the housework then get cooking - a big rib of beef yummy! Thank you so much for looking and the lovely comments you leave which are deeply appreciated.
