A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Wacky Birthday

Hiya all, hope you're all well and that you've all had a fab weekend!  I have a quick post for you all today as I am super duper busy, but I thought I'd give you all a giggle with this little cutie.

Here is a new, hilarious image called Funny Face, created by the extremely talented Sheryl of Redonkadoodles.  I couldn't wait to colour this bucket full of fun up ..... 

I've been doing a fair few fussy, fancy cards just recently (bet you can't say that in a hurry!!) but, for this one, I let the image take centre stage .... I think she can handle it, don't you? :)  The teal & brown colour combo is one of my all time favourites and I reckoned they'd be perfect for this gorgeous chick.

I've layered the backing papers at angles and added faux 'glitter' stitching on each mat. I then added a simple layering of flowers to add dimension.  The greeting was computer generated then glittered.  I layered three strips of ribbon under each side of the greeting - each ribbon folded over. 

I have to say, I've pulled this face on many occasions - but never once have I looked as gorgeous doing so!! LOL ...
