Quick Christmas Cards

These quick christmas cards are taken from Clare Curds from ages ago, they just seemed really simple yet still christmassy.

I think the stamps are Woodware, coloured with copics, computer generated greetings and simple gems in the corner.

Quick Post

Hi there, just a quick post for today as I seem to be so busy. I've made quite a lot of cards just haven't gotten around to taking pictures of them!
This is just one for my 'stock', made using capsule collection paper, nesties and little roses. I'm trying to get my stocks back up again as the table top sales start again this Sunday, at least it's cooled down a little now, can't be baking in 50+ degree heat!

Will make sure I take some pictures and get them put on ASAP.

Must just say tho, how lovely and helpful Mo at Mo's Digital Pencil Shop has been, I was having trouble ordering from her using PayPal form Turkey and even on a Sunday she helped me and hot me sorted.

Bye for now, thanks for stopping by

My first award

Good Morning, I received my first blog award last week from the lovely Sally and have only just figured how to get it all done.

The rules for this award are:

Thank the person who gave me this award

Put the award on my blog

List 3 things I like about myself:

1, I'm very patient, if I can't get something done I'll persevere until it's done.

2, If I hadn't moved to Turkey I wouldn't have discovered card making or probably have time to do it anyway.

3, I'm an animal lover, if I had enough money I'd look after all of the 'street' cats and dogs in the town.

Post a picture I love.

This was taken May '09 when I went 'home' to visit my best friend, I hadn't seen Lisa or been back home for 4 years so it was very special to me.

Pass the award to 5 other lovely people:






Hopefully all of this has worked...

Thanks again Sally.

I just can't stop colouring

Since I got my first Tilda together with some skin colour copics, there is no stopping me, not just colouring but buying! I'm on my second Tilda and 23 copics not even getting to all the digi stamps I've now aquired! Ah well you only live once eh?

Speaking of digi stamps I got these 2 that were just shouting to be coloured with my new felt tips, and with the whole back to school in all the shops it just seemed fitting. Also needed a break from Christmas!

They were from Kenny K, which is such a fab site, trying to stay away from there at the moment, need to replenish the funds first!

At the moment here it's the festival at the end of Ramadan so pretty much everywhere is closed and you have to keep a supply of sweets in for if/when the local children come around, I'd compare it to our Christmas with a twist of halloween (coming round knocking on doors for sweets) in it! So Iyi Bayramlar everyone!!

Christmas Tilda

I've had these made for ages now just haven't gotten around to uploading them. We have family here at the moment, helping to paint the house so it's rather busy, I'm not getting much done. Although they did bring me a huge bad full of goodies, I'm dying to get going with them but don't want to appear rude!

Best get off now, already been away from them for too long lol!
