I'M SPONSORING THE NEW PAWPRINTS CHALLENGE

Hello Saturday Peeps,
I am delighted to say that I am sponsoring the brand new   PAWPRINTS CHALLENGE #1 started by Karen Howard. Here's  part of Karen's Mission  Statement...

" Sending Paw Prints supports our furry friends by collecting blank thank you pet themed, handmade cards and donating them to animal shelters and rescue groups for them to write thank you messages to foster parents, donors and volunteers. 

Animal shelters and rescue groups send hundreds of thank you cards to foster parents, donors and volunteers each month. Sending Paw Prints mission is to donate enough blank thank you pet themed handmade cards to animal shelters and rescue groups so they no longer need to purchase them and are able to send a heartfelt thank you message with a personal handcrafted card. "


I have made a couple of cards which are displayed on the Challenge #1 Blog,  and there will creations from some of my IWC DT spread throughout the month.
Here is one I have made to show here on my personal Blog.
I stamped the crazy dogs and coloured them with Derwent Academy watercolour pencils. They are fussy cut and popped up with foamies.
I used a Freebie pawprint background paper from 'Animal House', which can be found HERE.


The dog set is from KATZELKRAFT, and I have the Cat set too :-)


My 2nd card uses Freebie background papers from ' The Cottage Market'  and comes in 20 beautiful colorways. Lots of gorgeous freebie papers to download HERE. I used my Silhouette Curio to cut the Thank You  and pawprint medalion, and a Grumpy Cat image for inside.





The Pawprints Challenge is open for a month until 11 January 2017 so you have lots of time to pop over and play along.

Thanks for dropping by xxxx

KRIMBO KITTY

Hello Peeps - long time no speak !! :-D

I have been working away at this end making cards for orders and not really getting much time for anything else. I haven't even sent my own cards yet ! Everything will be late anyways as we have another lot of strikes in Athens, so no boats, no supplies etc. etc. so all our post will be late coming in and going out.... again !!!!! I actually went into the supermarket yesterday and there was NO meat !  First time I have ever seen that :-(

Anyhoo - I snagged a great Krimbo kitty freebie - "MEOWY CHRISTMAS " - in my newsletter from THE EAST WIND and have coloured him up in non-traditional colours. I found a lovely packet in my stash which is from Papermania - it's called ' Contemporary Christmas ' and is all lilac and grey :-)




I will show you some of my card orders a bit later - probably at the weekend, when I have a bit more time !

******  p.s.  I have a mystery...... I received this package that was posted from NORTH CHARLESTON, USA at the end of October and it contains Halloween goodies but as you see, it has been torn open at the top left corner and the sender's details are not all there. There is no name inside and I don't know who to thank !!!    ******

WELL LOOKEE HERE...

Crikey.... it's me popping in on my own Blog... shock, horror !!! hahahahaha
I have been uber busy with other stuff and my Challenge Blogs so I am afraid my personal one has been a wee bit neglected. :-(
I have come to show the latest PL/ATC kits that I have made for the November Swap at YOUR PAPER PANTRY. The theme this time is Winter/Christmas, as ever hosted by the lovely Linda Lapotka.
I decided to go with reindeer and this is what my kits look like when made up.
Obviously each recipient can make them up however they want :-)
I was inspired by the brand new Freebie from MEINLILAPARK, which was the super reindeer background :-D  :-D 




I got the Chrimbo tape from my local sewing shop the other day. It's not a ribbon, it's like that fabric tape stuff that you use around edges, but it's cool :-)

Must whizz off now as have got new drawings and schtuff to finish :-D
Thanks for popping in.

CAT LOVERS' BLOG HOP 2016 - DAY 5


Meow-llo ...  and welcome  to DAY  5 of the CAT LOVERS BLOG HOP 2016. I am one of the Sponsors again this year and I  have given a Prize to JANIS to use..... a brand new set of 5 Christmas Cats digital stamps that I called " FLEAZ NAVIDAD ".

Today is DAY 5 and if you pop over and link up, you will be in with a chance to win this image:



This one is called " WAITING FOR SANTA ".  and could be your very own if you go see what the game is today from JANIS.

Today I made a Meowloween box card. All the sweet kittlings have been drawn by my dear friend FIKI and I was very lucky that she gave me a set :-D :-D
I have coloured them with Derwent Inktense pencils and Spectrum Noir markers and stuck then to strips of acetate to make them 'float' in the box. I altered the balloons on the little guy at the top so they looked like pumpkin balloons.
On the sides of the box I have used my Meowloween digi.
The box design was a free print and cut download from CHOUX CHOUX PAPER ART





I hope you will go and play in the Hop - there's lots of lovely prizes and fun games :-) 

Thanks for popping in and I will see you later :-D xxxx


Oh ... don't think I am being rude and ignoring everyone.... I shall be doing my own Blog Hopping round to you all on Saturday when I have lots of time to have a good browse :-D  xxxxx

Today I made a little card using a kitty that I printed 4 times and fussy cut to make him into a decoupage. I stitched a scrapette of material to my cardstock and then glued him on. I even decorated the inside of the envelop :-D 
Before sticking the kitty down I made 2 holes and threaded some ribbon through with a hanging 'hello kitty' charm :-)
I am sorry but I can't remember just now who this kitty is from - I will check through my system and come back to update it later :-(


I hope you will go and play in the Hop - there's lots of lovely prizes and fun games :-)
