Don't Sundays come around Quickly!!!!

Missed the last one totally....  was at a school leaving party, and boy do they know how to party.... took me most of the week to recover but the good news is, I don't think (after much speculation) that my toe is broken!!!  Oh... and if you are interested... it was a year 6 leavers party... Yes.. they were all 11 years old!   Such a great day... and night.. The parents had as much fun as the kids did!

Anyway... another Sunday and another CD Sunday Challenge....  this week  "Bling!!"  Yes, thought I.. can can Bling it with the best of them... but... when I went to do it, suddenly I came over all "sofistikatid like"  :-)

So... here is my "Elegant Bling"   I like to think it more Last Night Of The Proms.... than The Only Way Is Essex.....

(I used Spring Butterflies and Lace... quick plug.. you can see it here.)

Right....  off to do a few bits.... gotta make sure I am ready and waiting for next Sunday! LOL



 Forgot to add a close up of the flutterby!!

Finaly gave in and joined the club...

The Pro Marker Club that is!

My first ever lot (errr. yes a fair few lot!!) of pro markers turned up this morning..... having spent what seems like forever not wanting them cos I am a Pencil Fan.... and anyway they are only posh felt tips. so what is the big deal... blah blah blah.... but I caved into peer pressure and bought some.... and...


Oh Wow..... why have I resisted for so long?!?!?  I do love my Pencils, I will always love my Pencils... but WOW.. different effect and I love them!

I dug out a digi image I printed a while ago and had a play.....  for my first ever try.. I am quite pleased with myself!!

Bet it was a fluke though! LOL  Off to play some more to find out!


 OK... Second go..... and I still love them....... lots and lots and lots now!   I might be gone some time.. stamped out a few images to play with! LOL xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Now Don't Be Shocked!!!

Members of the CD Sunday DT better sit down! :-)

Two weeks running  AND it is Wednesday...  Oh Wow!  What is happening to me?  I seem to be organised!!!!

This weeks challenge is Nautical Well, a couple of weeks ago I bought a new pattern when I was at one of Judith Maslens wonderful workshops, and I think this weeks theme is the perfect excuse to use it!

I traced the pattern onto parchment using a brown pen, and then coloured with my much loved Derwent Coloursoft Pencils... most of the colouring is on the back, but the boat is on the front to give a brighter colour

I ten put it onto a sheet of lovely stripy card I had, and tore off a strip of seagull paper printed form Lighthouse Bay

I think it fits the Nautical theme.... and I hope you like it!

Till next week... xxxxxx

Cutting it fine....

as usual... But I really really wanted to enter the CD Sunday challenge this week... cos it is HANDBAGS!!!!!  Oh, and how I love my bags!

I have had a mad busy week getting a long promised CD finished.. and then when I went to get ready for the challenge, my printer refused to play any games at all.... Grrr.. rotten thing!

But I "insisted" and managed to print.... and here is my bag!

It is not the bag I originally intended to do, but time ran away with me, so I had to amend my plans.  This is a very very vague interpretation of a Linda Williams bag from an old Parchment Magazine... in fact it is so vague, I doubt even Linda would recognize it!! :-)  But I loved the shape, so I used it

I printed backing paper and flowers form my Paper Flower Boutique CD onto parchment, and went from there...

and here it is!

Hugs all.....xxxxxxxx
