Woopsy, only 12 hours late with my Blog Candy Winner!

Good evening crafty bloggers!
I'm so sorry, I completely forgot about my blog candy today!
I was up early & got my towels on to wash, stripped my bed,
did some ironing, got crafty & then did some home DIY with hubby!
We were sorting out some sprung floor boards today
as well as varnishing some doors.
We also had to wait in for our old sofa's to be collected by the charity shop people!
I can't tell you how good it feels to have a little bit of space back in the house!
So now, without any further ado let's get down to the business in hand!
There were 20 comments on my candy post.
The candy prize is a 15 Euro Voucher for

Having checked the comments, there was one duplicate which I deleted 
just to keep it fair!
Mr Random .org was called upon to make a selection!

He picked #14
That's you Nancy!
send me an email to dawnyfox(at)gmail(dot)com
& I'll give you the voucher code!
Thanks so much to all who entered!

I'm Bedazzled!

Happy Hump Day bloggers!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
We the Dude & Dudette's have been given a week off from 
Dude Time Doodles this week as there is no challenge but....
Here is the card I have to share with you today!

The image is Bedazzled Beth!
She's a total knockout don't you think? 
I love her little 'familiar' in the form of a cat too!
Beth is from Dude Time Doodles!!! lol
If you entered the BCA challenge at Link Up For Pink
You might have been lucky enough to get her for free!
She's perfect for Halloween & especially for a Halloween Birthday!

Such attention to detail, just look at those killer heels! 
I coloured Beth up with a selection of promarkers & flexmarkers
then distresses the edges & inked them.
I added some Diamond Sparkles for a few highlights!
Must say they look a bit green in the photo but it was the only way 
I could capture the sparkle!

The sentiment is from a free sheet by Caz & was lying 
just beside me at the right time!
The ribbons & buttons were from my stash
The gauze was salvaged from work  as it hadn't been used
& was about to go in the bin as it was past it's use by date.
It started out white but I attacked it with a black promarker
et voila! Inky fingers!! Lol, you can still see the odd wisp of white!

The base card is orange & I matted the DP, another freebie from
the set by Michelle Stone,& the image onto black paper.

I lightly decorated the inside too! 
I love doing this as I feel it gives the card balance & looks 
a bit more exciting than a plain old insert!
Thanks again for stopping by!

Not One But Two!

Good Morning Bloggers!
I'm  a very lucky lady! 
I was given not just one but two blog awards yesterday from the lovely

Thank you very much Rachel, - I'm honoured to receive them both!

 Both of these awards come with some rules: 
  1. I need to publicly thank the people who gave them to me. 
  2. I am to share some information about myself
  3. I have to nominate some of my favorite blogs
  4. I am to comment on their blogs to let them know I’ve awarded them

Thank's again Rachel, I'm honored & delighted that you chose me!

The One Lovely Blog award asks me to share 7 facts about myself while the 
Sunshine Award has some specific questions for me to answer. 
The Sunshine Award questions will effectively cover the 7 facts about me.

  • Favourite color: Purple
  • Favourite animal: Cats, of all sizes
  • Favourite number: 7
  • Favourite drink: Hmmm that's tough one! I guess it would be cider!
  • Facebook or Twitter: FB although I do tweet too!
  • Good book or good movie: A good book on holiday but a good movie on a cosy night in!
  • Giving or getting gifts: Has to be giving! I love to see peoples faces when you give them a well chosen gift! That's not to say I don't like getting gifts too!
  • My passion: Crafting(keeps me sane), My Family (Drive me insane) Holidays(for when I need to get away from it all!)
  • Favourite day: Friday (the promise of the weekend ahead!)
  • Favourite flower: Can't say I have a favourite but I love to see daffodils as they herald the start of spring!

 I now have to nominate 3 people to get these awards. I always find this difficult as there are so many fantastic bloggers out there!
Here goes anyway!

Still In The Pink

Good afternoon all you lovely bloggers,
I hope you've had a fun Sunday!
Hubby & I have just been out for a belated anniversary lunch at 
a local dim sum restaurant it was yummy!
Made even tastier as they always send us a money off voucher to use!
Here's the little card I made today!

The colours were very difficult to capture so I apologise for that!
I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday for the design.

The image I have used was a freebie from 

I coloured her up with a mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers 
& inked the edges then added a few little 
Papermania self adhesive gems

I also added the blow & a Hope Ribbon Charm.
The DP is from a book I bought in Lidl, I love it when they get 
crafty bits in but  I haven't seen any for ages!

Here's the inside!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like her!
I'm off to search for a few more challenges to enter.
