Time for my DT card for Whimsie Doodles.....  I'm running a bit late with this as there's been a couple of things happening in our road that have kept me a bit busy..  but I managed to get it done this afternoon...  and this turkey did make me smile while I coloured him - so all was good!

I decided that as I'd done a Christmas card already - I should get a Thanksgiving card done too..

This is Alternative Turkey - available HERE on the Whimsie Doodles site - along with lots of other fun Turkey images..

Die - Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Border
Paper - Echo Park The Story of Fall

A Baby Shower...


Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies...

I was asked by my daughter to make a card for a Baby Shower this week.... her friend is throwing the party and is expecting a baby boy soon.  I did struggle a bit to come up with an idea though......  even on Pinterest couldn't find much inspiration......  then I remembered this die from MFT...  THEN I couldn't find it!  After a mahoosive search of every die in my collection......... TWICE - I ended up finding it stuck to the back of another set!  That was two hours of my life I won't get back!! LOL!

But at least I discovered dies that I'd forgotten about (oops) - so it wasn't a totally wasted couple of hours...  hehe!

I used the negative of the umbrella (I've used the proper cut previously for 'under the weather' get well cards).... and decided to make a shaker card..

MFT Dienamics Umbrella Die
Anna Marie Designs Dotty Card
Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and a few other sparkles..
Pearls, Ribbon and Lace from Stash

I was really pleased how it turned out... Hope you like.  It's a while since I made a card without a coloured image... and I did enjoy it!

 Have a Lovely Weekend...
Big hugs

Under the Weather??


Good Morning Lovely Bloggers...

Yes....... you're at the right blog - this IS Pink Christine...  lol.... here with a get well card for a man!! Can you believe it?? LOL!  Not a trace of pink in site unless you count the blush on his cheeks and nose!! 

Little Miss Muffet Stamps have come up with some crazy and fabulous Mustache Guy Images.... you'll LOVE them!!  And as male get well cards are often a struggle, I decided this little guy could be used perfectly for one!

He comes with his mustache (3 different ones!) and glasses separately (yes I know, mustache is spelled the US way as that's where LMMS comes from),,, so they can be added or not, dependant on how you feel - or in fact, what the guy looks like that you're sending it to...

Paper - Echo Park Through the Year
Colouring - Copics
Skin E00/21/11, R20
Mustache C1/2/3
Mac YR23, Y02
Boots - B72/75
Shading - N1/2/3
Grounding - C1/2/3/5
Uni Posca Pen for Highlights
Glossy Accents for Glasses and Brolly Handle
Sentiment - computer generated

I've had very little to NO internet over the past few days - so please bear with me if I've not visited you to comment...  My internet provider (no names mentioned but think of Mr Branson) has ASSURED me that all will be well by Wednesday of this week.......  but that makes a whole week where I have connection for a few mins then it disappears.  Hmmm maybe a change of provider is needed!

Big hugs and Happy Monday all...
