Delicious Doodles - anything but a card

This week at Delicious Doodles the challenge is to create anything but a card.  Well that suits me just fine as I suck at cardmaking (majorly!).

I have made a crimbo ornament.  I used the skull wreath from the Delicious Doodles digi shop.  I coloured them red and green then edged the sides with a distress ink pad weathered wood I think.  I then put on my melting pot dipped it in, put it in the garage to cool down then cracked it and went over the top with tattered rose.  It doesn't show up well in the pic but in real life you can see all the cracks.

Anyway get your butt over to the delicious doodles digi shop and see some of the amazing images she draws.  Something for everyone be you cutesy or goth.
My kids all want a piece of me so I better go and tend to their needs 8 year old wants me to film his lego army, 5 year old wants me to make her a wishing stone and 3 year old just wants me haha.

Crafty Individuals Blog Candy Win

I just wanted to write a post about the Crafty Individuals online stamp company.  I was the lucky winner of the £150+ blog candy prize and only a day after winning I received my prize.  They payed £8.65 to post it as well as sending all of the amazing crafting goodies.

The goodies are amazing and just as pictured in the post.  They also have a facebook page, where I found them here.  So if you are not already a follower I highly recommend it!  The packaging on the craft goodies was exceptional too, everything in mint condition.

This is a painting I did last night for my father-in-law for his christmas using acrylic paints.

I promise I will get around to commenting again.  I have been so lapse lately as we have been mega busy with kid stuff.

Sparkle and Glitter Challenge - Winter in White

This week at the Rick St Dennis MFA Sparkle and Glitter Challenge Blog you are to create something using mostly white.  I decided to use the opportunity to make this for my best friend who is a wee gem of a person, she gets my quirkiness.

Well my card looks a lot better in real life but I just can't get the light to take a decent pic, it is so dull here in Scotland! 

I have just coloured the bows red for a little dash of colour and then used greys and some off yellows to shade.  Then lots of stickles to try and brighten it up a bit.

It doesn't show on the pic but I cut her out and added her to a vellumy type tissue paper, but in the photo it just looks like I cut round the paper. 
Anyway still lots of time to get your card done for the challenge.
