The Paper Shelter Rebel

Good morning a while ago I applied to be on a design team as I felt ready to create again, and I was lucky enough to have been chosen to be on The Paper Shelter Challenge team, I start tomorrow, I am so pleased to have a purpose to craft again, so I have been playing with some of their images and today I am sharing "Rebel" with you...




I coloured her with Copics and chalks, I added some white highlights, and some glitter, the paper is an old Prima pad called Annalee and I used to for my die cut flowers too, I added some "Pearls" and a "Ribbon" with a "Rhinestone Sparkler" and a simple sentiment, the circle is a MFT one with a spellbinders Lacy circle and I ran my cutter bee alone the edges to create some texture, thank you so much for looking today big huggles Pops x x x

Good morning and I am all back up and running, its been so hard with intermittent internet, but all is sorted at least for me my neighbours are not so lucky, but the building site opposite is getting there, there was lots of people and cameras there over the weekend, shouting and protesting and it turns out they are filming for a movie being made, we was stood watching out the windows most of the day, they looked really scary I actually believed they was marching, anyway on to today's card using cheery yellow to make me feel brighter...




I used papers from my scrap draw and some punches for this super cute image from Di's Digis called "Bee Mine Mice" I coloured with markers and some chalks for shading, I added some white highlight pen and some stickles and liquid pearls, I added a simple sentiment as this is for charity, thank you so much for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

Time for me again..

Good morning I have finally sorted through all my bits and got them all in one place, I am now in the cupboard under the stairs, it has finally dried out from the roof leaking, I am so sick of leaking doors, windows and pipes, I have lost count of the number of times I have had to throw away and start again but now we are all dried out and hopefully water proof, there is nothing that can leak now (fingers crossed) as you all know my crafty cupboard got the worst of it and warped so the shelves started collapsing, the wheels buckled a few weeks ago and it was just beyond repair, so I told Lee I needed a new desk and I have picked this one "HERE" so while I am saving up for it, Shaleise has bought herself a double bed so she could not fit her desk in her room so she gave me it while I save up for my new one...

I have it all planned out when I get my new one it will go at the larger end so I don't keep cracking my head :0)))), the cupboard measures 9 foot 10 inches long by 2 foot 10 inches wide, obviously the roof gets smaller as the stairs are there, its very cosy and dark but there is a socket so I could have a lamp in there, suits me perfectly.....




This is my desk and colouring space with all my markers and pencils, expect for the 2 that I stupidly threw away when I threw all the wet papers and ribbons away, IB1 and BT1 are gone :0( but it is handy having them all in one place at arms length...




The other end of my desk, surprisingly it all fits, because I threw that much away again...




The draws are for family stuff at the moment and my stamps are on the top along with family drinks, and coats above them...




I got a little stool and now can sit and play, I was on the dining table but I like to have meals as a family so I had to keep putting it all away, which is kind of a mojo killer, now I can start a creation and walk away if I need to without putting it all away, it is perfect for me, so on to today's creation....




I used "Video Boy" and coloured with "Spectrum Noir Markers" sorry I didn't write the numbers down I couldn't find a post it :0) I used up scraps of paper and distressed the edges, I will be in my tiny cupboard today creating as soon as I have cleaned through, thank you for looking today have a fabulous Saturday big hugs love Pops x x x

Still on white

Good morning so I decided to use another die set I have never used, shocking that I have never used them, but I have now I have one more set I have not used, and I shall be playing with that one today if I get myself sorted, I started sorting out my craft supplies and trying to be more organized, wow I wish I had never started, but since I gave my craft room to my son so he could have his lift fitted I sort of took over every room, draw and cupboard, I have to get it all out sorted and back in to my crafty cupboard so it is all in one place, sigh....




Another simple super fast card using die cut flowers, butterfly and gems, Have a wonderful day its sunshine and gorgeous here again :0) huggles Pops x x  x

White card

Good morning I was asked to make a card for a friend for her Mum, I am not to keen on making cards for other people to much pressure :0) and if I have to send a card I use my Hallmark cd I don't really make people hand made cards unless they are special, I do make lots of cards as you see from my blog but they either go to shops as samples, TV for samples or I donate to 3 different charities, so with a huge amount of pressure I made a card for her Mum but went for the safe option of white....




I printed my sentiment on to Linen card, and cut it out with a really old die set that I have never used, I added some die cut flowers a MFT swirl and a Butterfly, I then added some Gems and some Gem brads, a simple white card, thank you so much for looking today, biggest of hugs love Pops x x x
