Penny time again.  And this time, I got to play with an image from
and it is called 


Love how this turned out.  As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia I thought I would add this cutie to my diary.  
I love these country colours so much.  And jeans blue is my favourite combo.  This girl is in the place where I currently like to be....in garden.

 Hi!  I am back with another project for Digi Doodle Studios

 Each month I get to choose any image from the shop.  This time around I chose to use an image I actually bought. 

Koala - ified is a group of images and being an Aussie, I love using them! There are many said sets in the Pairable section under Digi images.

And who would not like to receive a koala for a baby card.  

Love making pop up cards and this is just perfect for this little guy to be hanging out in his tree in one.  
Honestly they are easy to colour.  And I love working in grey scale.  I used my T numbered Copic markers.  

Note - you will have to be quick to grab Digi Doodle Images as they are closing their site at the end of October to concentrate on their physical stamps.  
So don't dily daly.  
Happy crafting!

APTTC September


We have two sponsors this month.  I got to work with 

And here is my project using Bauble Gnome

I went a little textural with this one.  Grabbed what textures I had in my stash and just randomly added them to the 2 corners in different colours.  Santa is just hanging out in between showing you his bauble.  LOL

I really love Connie's images.  They are clean, simple and cute as. 

Don't forget to play along with us on the challenge page.  Check us out on facebook and check out Connie Fong's FB and Etsy shop.  You won't regret (but your bank balance might...hehe. 

Happy crafting!

Sienna Photographer

Digi Doodle Studio time again!

This month I went with something that would challenge me.  I normally like to use images that I get inspiration from straight away.  I have mojo issues sometimes when it comes to people images.  Especially with specific themes or actions.  

So I chose to use Siena Photographer

I imagined she was out and about, taking photo's and loving it.  In the park, beside a pond, photographing awesome shaped clouds.  Then I brought the rainbow to her.  Using classic colours for her outfit it all fell into place.  
The black and white sentiment really pops with all the colours behind it.  And to add a little something I adhered cleared sequins on each colour of the rainbow.  
Thank you for popping by.

APTTC August


This months sponsor is 

And I was lucky enough to choose my image.  And Christmas is totally on my mind right now. 

And I totally made him swing!!!  
Using a set of Rectangular dies I cut the front out with the smaller one and then cut a border of silver glitter card with the smaller one and then the next size up.  This acts as a border around the die cut hole in the front of card.  Just makes it look nice and tidy while adding a bit of bling at the same time. 

I coloured the Sanat image in and then fussy cut it out.  Adhered this to some clear acetate.  When cutting this again again I left strips above the rope so I could slip that in between the card front and the patterned paper.  Makes the finished product nice and neat and the ropes not not hanging out anywhere. 

So when you stand the card up a little breeze will make him move slightly.  Totally lives up to his name.  
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my Swinging Santa.  Don't forget to play along with the challenge for your chance to win!

Been a good while since I have played along with one of our sketches.  
I have been so busy with prep for our local Pop Culture event that I fell away from here. 

Well I am back!  And this was a great sketch to step back with. 

And here is my interpretation. 

I went straight to a set that at least 5 characters in it.  
Two sets actually.  Pick and chose who to use. 

I even consulted my youngest daughter on which characters to colour for this one.  So it was a family effort.  
I am still working through all my sets and the colour codes with my Copics.  I will share, just want to get a few more done before taking photo's to share. 
Don't forget to play along with us. We have fun looking at all the entries. 
Happy crafting.

Buster St Bernard Christmas Puppy

Time again,to share my Guest DT project. 
This month I chose to use the cute little image of

Getting my Christmas on once again.  This time I went for a full rainbow line up!

So not your normal colour combo's for Christmas but I think that that is half the fun of these.  
Looking at the line up I really think pink is missing.  Not a rainbow colour but still would have looked great.  
These are awesome to encourage young kids to read over the Christmas break.  They get to choose their favourite colour and use it everyday.  Win, win!  
And as an added bonus, as this image is a digital one you can resize it for anything.  So you could put it on a notebook front or sketch book for the kids to use along side their summer/ winder reading (depending on what hemisphere you are in!).  
I used watercolour paper with distress oxide to do the backgrounds.  I coloured the images with copic markers and then fussy cut them out and adhered to the paper.  
Thank you for joining me today.  
Happy crafting!
