Off Centre

Oh what a mess I am in but it will be worth it in the end.
I emptied the spare bedroom and had the carpet cleaned and have moved my craft into there
to have the carpet cleaned in the other room which was my craft room.
On Wednesday I collect my new craft unit which I have to put together
Wish me Luck.
I am sure one unit will not be enough!!!
Then I have to empty some of the plastic drawers that I have and give myself more desk space.  I HOPE!!
Very exciting but every time I clean up It takes me ages to remember where everything is again.

Amid the chaos I have made a card for
The sentiment is believe in your dreams. Shows up on the edited version.
I went mad with sponging around everything in blue to give it all a hazy appearance.

Since I updated Picasa it will not allow me to link the edited version of my card
and if I try to blog it straight from Picasa all I get is a small square with a cross in it that will show the card when clicked but that is not what I want.
My IT expert {Grandson} lives in London and I can't seem to catch him on Skype these days.
Google has been playing up too telling me I don't have a google account and not letting me make comments but today is on it's best behavour.
If you find word verification on that too is the fault of google.  Grrr.

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

Too many Challenges..................

...Not enough time.........................

I want to do the Magnolias
the Christmas ones
the Penny Blacks
The Less is more
but time prevents me and my boxes of ready made cards tells me I am MAD,MAD,MAD
What do I need more cards for I can never use all I have now.

Tilda of course. I haven't yet found an Edwin I like unfortunately.

I had a fright this morning as Tilda had gone very pale I think my E00 needed refilling
Seems better now I have gone over her again.  The joy of Copics you can go back and refine.
Skin E00 R20
Hair E53 E50 E31
Ribbon  and Lace YG11
Dress RV23 RV21
Socks  Y00

I did go a little overboard with those little red pearls.  They are so hard to handle and they made me say more than one rude word.  Having got them all on and standing back to have a look I realized I didn't need them all but once on you can't take them off with out damaging the paper.
Should have given you a close up of the lace as it is so pretty and does not show up too well.

Here is hoping you all have a wonderful Easter
and remember Chocolate is not good for you!!!!!!!!!!!.
Hope the Easter bunny remembers I have to have white chocolate.

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

Frosty the Snowman

.A week ago I went into town with my daughter in summer gear.
Then  this week has been so cold I have nearly froze.
And rain, well we did need the rain, but all in one hit!!!!!!!!!!!

I seem to have had no time to catch up the last couple of weeks but have done a
little blog hopping when time permitted.
That is how I found this challenge.

They were asking for Hotspot or Spotlight Technique and I just had to have a go.

This is a very old Hero Art snowman with such a cute face.

The card and paper are left overs and I have glam'ed it up with lots of kindy.
Shows up better if you enlarge the picture.
I am having to link my pictures instead of blogging them straight from Picasa
and this way you have to suffer the unedited editions- sorry.

Did think about putting some Holly on it but thought it might be overdoing it a bit.
Am entering this in the
ABC Christmas challenge- Hotspot
CHNC christmas challenge- Going round in circles

Thank you so much for dropping in you are most welcome.
