Melody Celebrates

Hello Everyone,


Today I bring you a card using another image from Make it Crafty this time it is Melody – I have used the Digi version of this image but she is also available as a rubber stamp as well.  The cushion she is sitting on comes a separate file if you purchase the digital version.  I have used this cushion for other character to sit on in the past.

I have used my Copics to colour her in and I have followed along with the Make it Colourful Challenge – Blending outside Colour Family.  The hair I found was easier to do than the cushion.  The hair I combined both Rs & Es and then I did BG’s & B’s but I was challenged to add a Y to the shadows.  I took the plunge and I’m glad I did – I am happy with how it turned out.

To make up the card I used #199 sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and I also used up a whole lot of paper from my stash and left over pieces.  I love finding uses for these in my projects.

Thanks for stopping by to look at my project.  Please leave me a message in the comments and let me know what you think.

Jacinta Swinging Pretty

Hello Everyone,

Cropped Goldilocks

I am sharing with you a card that I have made to put into the August CAS Challenge brought to us by the Make it Crafty.  The challenge this month is to make a card with a Cropped image.  On this card I have used 2 images Jacinta Sitting Pretty Dress Digi and Pretty Swing Digi.  I decided to make it look like I had taken a close up image of Jacinta sitting on the Swing and then I coloured the image in with my Copics.

I really hope that you liked my entry and if you would like to give me some encouragement or some ideas how I could improve next time please leave a comment below. I would also really appreciate it if you would like my post so I can see that you have stopped by.  Thanks for stopping by, may the near future find you enjoying some crafty times.

Happy Craftings,

New Crochet Handbag


Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing with you my new Crochet Handbag, I made this bag by using the instructions (please find it here)  from on the Ravelry website.

Here is a picture of the original bag

As you can see from my photo I changed out the handles.  I was a little worried about the original design of the handles  as I am planning on using this bag for everyday use.  So instead of sewing them just under the rods I made a longer one that could go all the way under around the bag.  I also used 4 of my favorite buttons because they have a lot of meaning for me instead of 4 the same.

NewHandbagInsideHere is a picture of the inside.  I sewed a lining for the bag which included pockets.  These pockets are made to fit items that I was always losing in the bottom of my old bag, now I can find them a lot easier now.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today to look at my project.  If you have liked this please give this post a like and I hope you will come back again soon to see what else I have been up to.

Happy Crafting,
