I have coloured him with Promarkers and used Stickles on the snowy bits. I found a packet of these fabbo snowflakes... they have 2 sides, white and sort of holographic so I mixed them around.

Hi Peeps,

Are you all getting excited about my Blog Candy draw ????  It stays open until midnight tonight and then I will draw the lucky Winner tomorrow :-)

Anyhoo - today is not a good day for me as I lost one of my beloved Kitties last night due to poisoning, so I have immersed myself in some crafting of little frivolities.
Now - I have many, many digi stamps from SLIEKJE... who gives away her digital cuties for FREE. !!!! She just loves drawing them. I know she is also a cat lady coz she has some gorgeous photos of them on her blog header.
But I digress.... I snagged me this little cutie the other day and decided to colour him up and use him. I used Copics and  Stickles to give him some bling and the paper and border are snippets from my box :-)



I've got some other bits to show you, so I will be back later :-)

Challenges I am entering:

Winter Wonderland Challenge - A Christmas Mouse
Crafty Catz Challenge #209 - Santa Claus is Coming (mine is a Mouse LoL)

I GOT A PREZZIE :-)

Hello and Happy Saturday,

I popped in to say that today I have glorious sunshine and full electricity - which is soooooo good after the traumas of this week !! :-)
Anyway.... last week I really needed a digi stamp of a toilet and I thought I had seen one at SCRIBBLES DESIGNS but I couldn't find it. Well _ I contacted Sandy to ask her if I had seen it and she told me there never was one.... BUT drew me one specially :-D      How coooool is that ??!!!!

Here is the toilet and it comes complete with Loo Roll :-)  Click on the Pic to go to the Shop ..


I wanted to enter the latest challenge over at CREATIVE CORNER CHALLENGES.... 'Sing a Song'... to make a creation inspired by a song. So I have made something to go with "Ode to the Toilet (Put that Toilet Seat Down)" by Brad Paisley :-) If you've never heard it you can go here ....  www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIiFGTwkm1I


I typed out the words of the song and printed them in green for my backing. I edged the card with distress ink. I fussy cut the toilet and the froggie and coloured them with Copics.  They are put on with 3D foam pads for extra pop :-)

Scribbles images used:   Toilet and Carl

My background paper says Congratulations in gold, but you can't really see it now. :-) LoL

I hope you will pop over and the the other gorgeous ATCs from my Teamies :-D
