This and that

Hi there, how are you all?
I have a couple of things to show and tell.
 Scrappy Go Lucky are having a new challenge on Wednesdays called Whip It Up Wednesday and the theme this week was to colour a cricut image. I can tell you now that i have never thought to colour an image that i cut out so i had a great time looking through carts and deciding what to cut and how to colour. The stockings were coloured with Copics and some Distress Stickles.

The snowflakes were coloured with distress inks and then a quick spray of Glimmer Mist. Love how these turned out. I got this idea from the Hero Arts blog although they didn't use a cricut image. So there you go more great things you can do with the cricut.

Last night Andrew and i went out to dinner with our BF's without the children/young adults (who were disgusted that they weren't invited BTW) and i just had to make a little I Love You present for my friend so this is what i made.
Another little card set and one of my crocheted cleaning/dusting cloths. If you hadn't guessed already her favourite colour is PINK.
All presented in a cute bag because as you know it's all in the presentation.

Another of Caitlins BF's (she has two) is turning 18 at the end of the week so Caitlin asked me to make her an album so this is what i have done so far.

Didn't have to do much to the cover-add the ribbon, some pearls and a lovely stamped sentiment and of course ink the edges.

Inside the front cover is this pocket that i have inked the same way as i did the snowflakes on the very top photo. Love love love the way this turned out with the matching tag. The flower page is from my favourite October Afternoon-Fly A Kite collection and will have a photo attached to it. So with that in mind i had better go and work on the album as it has to be finished by next Saturday.

Have a great week everyone, thanks for stopping by.

Hi Linda,
thanks for joining our challenge over at Scrappy-go-Lucky. I love your glimmermist snowflakes. I have been having fun making my own glimmermist lately.
I really love your crochet dusting cloths too - that almost makes dusting glamourous!
