Quirky Charades? Is it a book, a film or a Song?

It's a Song and I'm home! Three weeks sitting on dogs... and a whole week with no blogging. That must be a first. The dogs we've been looking after have their 'mummy and daddy' back and any minute now, I'll be in my lovely bed, but, no peace for the wicked, I must get this DT card out as it's really late this time. 
Last Sunday, Quirky Craft's set a new challenge, thought up by Doris who wants us to play Quirky Charades, with, 'Is it a book, a film, or a song?' Yay!  Mine's a Song! (You've said that)
We're sponsored this time by Limited Runs, Paper Pretties and Robyn's Fetish, so there'll be some yummy prizes!
 I've used a digi from Limited Runs, this cute Little Santa. And my song?? I had to do simple or my brain just might explode! "Let It Snow," of course!
I started off putting the little Santa over my own Snowy paper, colouring him on the computer and then printing him off about four or five times so I could 3-D him.  I also printed the 'Let It Snow' sentiment under him at the same time.  
The freebie font I used, is called Curlz MT, just Google the name. Santa's fixed together with silicone glue. He has three heads and two body's, one with no arms or boots...I've also added an extra nose and moustache. Aw, poor Santa!
He really could do with some stickles too... so I'll just go and add that!
I covered a blank card with some patterned silver card, added the topper to some too, then added blue and white snow flake paper by PinkPetticoat. I've used the some PinkPetticoat Papers inside too. Then fixed on some white eye-lash wool.
The large snowflake is recycled, although the original gem was smaller. I had a sheet of  silver edged die-cut sentiments by Craft Creations, (They're going to be very useful!) and added  'Let it Snow' and a silver edged snowflake. The other tiny snowflakes were punch out with a Woodware Punch. I used the white card waste from the sentiments, see, said they'd be useful! (I throw nothing away!) Then I decided to add that corner die-cut and last but not least, Santa just had to have a fluffy pom-pom!
That's it I think... No, not quite... the last picture here shows Santa with a smidging of Stickles Glitter Glue on his hat and coat. Have to have a little bit of sparkle on a Christmas card! Pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in, the team have made some fabulous creations!

Quirky Framing It With A Potty Wizard!

Here's my third card for the Frame it! Challenge going on over on Quirky Crafts. We're sponsored by The East Wind and Bugaboo, so of course I just had to use this Harry Potter Digi from Bugaboo! 
Harry and his owl has been coloured using ProMarkers. I've also 3D-ed them, Harry has three heads! 
I made him a PNG so I could put the PinkPetticaot snowflake paper behind the frame so it would show through and it saves colouring and looks like Harry's standing in the snow! Harry's glasses have had a spot of Glossy Accents added.
The main paper, or card I've used, coz it's very thick,  came from a TV craft programme some years ago (One of the first things I ever bought!) and this is the first time I've used it. The colours just seemed to match (so glad I remembered I had it!)  I covered the blank card with  the green wizard card first and then cut out a wiggly 'frame' from the dark blue card and fixed that on using 3D foam squares along with the topper.
You can just see the inside, where I've used more star paper, again I've had this years, and by the 'feel' of it it's by Papermania. (Ok....I'm a paper freak)  I've added the gold stars using silicone glue. I've also added Stickles Glitter and a tiny pompom.
The sentiment I added when it was all on the computer, 'Witching You A Wizard Birthday!' The freebie font is called Wizards Magic in bold. Google the name, it's free on most sites, for personal use only. 
That's it I think!  If I can find time from dog sitting and walking my usual team, I really hope I can add this to some Challenges! Thank you for stopping by!

Quirky Well Frame it! Reminder Challenge

 Hi guys! Here I am with my second DT card for the latest challenge reminder over on Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog! I didn't quite have time to finished it and add it to last weeks Quirky post, as I'm still away. I've another two weeks of sitting on dogs!
 The theme of the challenge, thought up by Cazzy, is Frame It! I've used a digi from The East Wind called Lucy-Loo-mirror mirror   I love the cat mirror! And not too much of a spooky person coming out of that frame! A bit of a cheat using a mirror frame, but it still counts!  I've coloured her with Promarkers, cut her out and mixed her on the 'shimmerest' miri card I  could find. Now, can anyone spot something missing? (I've only just noticed it.) Shhh! we won't mention it!! No one will notice...and I still have it. So I can stick it on later....
The frame around the digi was a freebie download years ago from, I think, Crafts Beautiful Magazine, copyright of Chris Warner. I've even found I had envelope liners that match, so I will use those too.
I've covered the frame it with Stickles glitter glue, also added purple eyelash wool, clear square gems and a purple corner die-cut with a few more flower shapes. That's it! Pop over and join in, you have all week! Look out for my next DT card coming up in another post. I'll add that to Quirky Crafts as soon as the glitter dries! Have a great weekend. Thank you for stopping by!

Frame It! It's Another Quirky Challenge!

The Challenge over on Quirky Crafts has already started. It's Cazzy's turn to set the theme. And she has chosen... Frame It!!
Our sponsors this time round are Bugaboo and The East Wind, so some fab prizes for first, second and third are up for grabs!
 Here's one of my creations...done very quickly as I'm still away dog/house sitting and popped back home to give Jinx the cat a hug and some dinner!
 I'll try and add the other card later....or use it for next weeks reminder!
I've cheated and used a Framed digi from Bugaboo. I've done a bit of 3D-ing but this time used foam pads instead of silicone glue. 
The strippy paper I made by using the same colour Promarkers as I used to colour the digi . 
The black card frame was going to be 3D-ed too, but I decided to stick it on, so I could 3D the digi topper.. The sentiment was done on the comuter. The freebie font is called Apple Boy BTN. 
Hoping to add some challenges....but might not have time! Pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in! thank you for stopping by!

Happy Anniversary Tom And Emma!!

Happy Anniversary Emma and Tom! Goodness doesn't time fly! It doesn't seem that long ago I was showing you pictures of the wedding and then all the wedding invitations I made (That were featured in a crafty mag!) and then of course pictures of baby Niamh when she was first born!!
All that was six years ago! It was a lovely hot sunny day....not like today all wet with thunder and lightening! (although there were a few sunny bits!) Anyway.  I was thinking I'd see them this weekend but can't! Still sitting on dogs!!  Luckily I started making the card a few weeks back, but didn't finish it until today! 
Here it is! I will tell you all about it later... but seeing I've nipped home from dog sitting to do this, I've now got to nip back again! The anniversary sentiment was done on the computer with a freebie font called  Holiday Springs BTN... better add that now, I'll never remember it later! Thank you for stopping by!! Have a great weekend!!

A Quirky Reminder about Autumn Falling Leaves...

Evening Peoples. I'm a bit late again. Here's my 2nd Quirky Crafts DT card for the Autumn Leaves Challenge, (added Monday) sponsored by Stitchy Bear.
This time I've used Standing Guard  digi stamp coz we all know, dogs want treats and I'm sure this dog thinks that scare-crow has some stuffed up his sleeve and any minute will give him some!
Everything was coloured with Promarkers, although the background was coloured on the computer. I've used up some of the scraps left over from last weeks card and a couple of sheets from 'Wellington' and 'Neighourwood' 6x6 paper stacks. (Green Oak leaves and oak leaves with acorns, (plus the pumpkin paper and autumn leaves from last week) I've edges all the papers with brown ink, used a small Woodware punch to cut out the tiny leaves, also added a bow, some eyelash wool, Stickles glitter glue, and some pumpkin buttons (with the backs cut off) all fixed on with silicone glue.
The sentiment was done on the computer using a Freebie Font called  Apple Boy BTN. (google the name if you haven't got it. I have linked it before, but can't any more. For some reason they don't like it) That's it! All you have to do now is pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in!! The challenge finishes Saturday...oh but make a card or any crafty thing first...autumnaly of course!
