Dreasel Card


OK this is my first attempt at a dreasel card - thats my name for a drawer easel card - lol - i got the info from a lovely blog called inksomething.blogspot.com - the lady who's blog it is (Kristine Breach) put a very useful tutorial on her blog - about making the dreasel card - it was informative and very easy to understand so i thank her very much for taking the time to put this tutorial on her blog - i used a hangler & stangler image which i then watercolored - i have sent this to my Niece Charmaine and her husband Joey as a new home card as they have just got the keys to their first house - i have put choccy cars in the drawers for Joey as he is a bit of a chocoholic - lol

My Amazing Grandson


How amazing is this little man - i know i am totally biased being as he is my first Grandbaby and all - but i just lurve that child - He is so totally Bodacious - His name is Ethan and he is 9 months old - this is a piccy of Ethan enjoying the swings with his mummy and daddy - his daddy is my no:1 son - what do you think of his hair its so kewl innit


This card was made with my sister Sally Jo in mind - i think she will really like it - i even made a box and decorated that as well - i have posted it to her today so i will let you know what she thinks when she tells me - i have used another of the amazing Magnolia Tilda images - i am not that good at coloring them but i really do enjoy it so i think thats what counts so it will have to do - i used some HOTP papers which i adore - although i do find it very hard to actually use the papers that i have i much prefer to pet them and stroke them LOL - i know its really sad isnt it - i colored the image using ranger distressed inkpads - this was my first attempt - it kinda looks ok dont it - the flutterby is done with a Mariannes creatable die - i borrowed it from my friend Sue(thanks Sue) - have now decided i need to purchase my own

First Blog Post

WOW cant believe i have actually decided to put my ramblings and card creations onto my very own blog. I am sure this will be a slow process as i am really new to this - and my puter skills are only passable at best lol - i get so much pleasure from reading other peoples blogs i just decided maybe i can return the favour - you may not like my blog or what i post but hey somebody may find it amusing and if i can put a smile on one persons face then it was worth it .
