When you wish upon a star

Good afternoon to you all,
How are you all doing?....... I am not getting much spare time to come and visit you all so apologies for that :(

I am so happy that the super talented Gayle is back with the very cute and adorable bears at Teddy Bo.......I have missed these cute lil characters but it looks like they are back and even better than before.  Gayle is re drawing some of the original characters and they are available now as digital images here 

Here is a quick card that I put together using Teddy Bea...isn't she sweet :)

I have used Spectrum Noir pencils to colour her in

September Challenge over at Spectrum Noir - Friendships

Morning to you all,
Wow hasn't the weather been fantastic here in the UK for the last few days :)  Summer hasn't left us just yet.

Today is 36 years since my eldest brother was killed in a road accident.....It just doesn't seem possible and so long ago that I can bearly remember him....I was only 8 (given my age away now!)....nearly turning 9 so it almost feels like I never had an older brother.  I do miss him though, probably more in later years as I always wonder what he would have ended up doing...something practical...I think probably a Joiner as he loved woodwork :)...... Miss you Lee xx

Ok so I am here to share a card.....

As you know I am now on the Spectrum Noir DT so this is my first month of creating cards for the monthly challenges.....This month is Friendships
I was fortunate enough to be given some CC images to play with, so todays card is using a super cute image from Rachel Anne Miller called - Squeeze

Coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils

Face: 5,88

Last Challenge at LCI......

Hello, I am back again today to share my card for the very last challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink......after 5 years  Kerry has decided to call it a day so she can spend more time with her adorable Grandson.
I will be very sad to see the challenge end, it has been a great to be part of the DT but all good things must come to an end to make way for a new chapter to start.
Big thanks to Kerry for having me on the team :) 

For this last challenge some of the retired Ladybugs are joining us so I hope you will pop over to see what they have created......
I have used Cupcake Cutie - Cherry on Top.  It was a difficult choice as to know which image to choose for this challenge as it could have been any number of my favourites but this image was the very first one that I purchased from Ladybug Crafts Ink so thought it was the most apt.

I have coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pencils....
Face: 4,5,88
Cherry: 26,27
Top, Skirt,shoes and tights: 34,35,26
Cupcake Case 16,88,87

There is also a big sale starting today over at the shop here

ALL cling stamps will be on sale for £1 and all ribbon, felt, buttons and nailheads are 30% off. The Swarovski crystals will NOT be in the sale. 

Hope you can join us for this last challenge - the theme is choose your favourite image, it doesn't have to be a LCI image but it would be great if it was.

Thanks for popping over today.
