Another chrissy card

This week at CHNC- anything goes.
What fun I have had this card made for a while now but it was out of sight
and I forgot about it.
Trying and that is the operative word to clean up my desk I came across it and
have only today photographed it so with a challenge of anything goes it is perfect.
Don't ask me what the DP was I have cut the label tag off.
It was double sided the stars on the back.
As the trees were glittery I added some glittery card and stickles to Tilda.
I lso added fun fur to her hat which I glittered too.
I hope you like her.

Three of a kind

My daughter is in Melbourne now and fingers crossed for tomorrow. 
Lets hope they can do the simple operation and she wont have to have a pacemaker.
Not of course that any operation is simple.
At least she got away this time lets hope there is no more ash problems this week so she
can get back as planned.

Less is more - sketch
What a lovely lot of cards already on display well done everyone.
Now you will know that I have been to see some of you but for some reason I can't leave comments on some blogs and that includes the Less is more one.
Chrissie and Mandi are doing such a wonderful job and I just want to let them know that.
Why Norton should let me comment on one blog and not another I really do not know.
However having got that off my chest onto this weeks card.
I just delved into my box of bits and found a piece of card the right size for a base.
One skinny piece of yellow and an off cut of copic paper.
The stamp is one that I got at a discount store
contains 12 flower stamps that would not stick onto the acrylic block.
I very nearly threw them away until I thought of my 2 way glue.
It works a treat.

Penny Black Critter

 I thought it was time I took another  Penny black challenge
as I love my PB stamps.
PB Saturday challenge is celebrating their 3rd birthday so what better time to join in.
You will notice that I have used black AGAIN.
I must put my black card away and try something else.
Have had this little hedgie coloured up for some time now
and just had to use him.
Having said that I have no idea now what colours I used as my sticky note has gone that is if there was one in the first place.

This is for Penny Black Saturday challenge - Critters
Penny Black at Allsorts - Your favorite
They are all my favorites so what do you choose?

It is cold 14 degrees, windy and threatening rain here.
Hope it's better where you are.
  The bulbs are coming up and the Cootamundra Wattle is nearly out so roll on spring.

Thank you for dropping in you are most welcome.

In the Pink

For someone who says they don't like black I find I have been using a lot of it lately.
Must says though it certainly sets things off and is lovely with pink.
Thank you to Paola for giving us this colour I had a ball with it.

Have been through my stamps to find ones to put in the background.
Do have some Magnolia ones on order but was impatient to try out ones I already had.
It took me several goes before I got this right.
I tried the sky with DI Broken China this time.

It is raining thank goodness as we so badly need it.
We had several quite mild days last week and the wattle is beginning to come into
full bloom so it felt like spring.

Now I must really hurry with this to catch the posting at House of cards.

I really should be in Sydney now but the flight was cancelled because of the
ash from the volcano in Chile in fact Quantas have not flown a plane in or out of
Tasmania for 3 days now.
Virgin are flying low or round the ash clouds and they have cleared their
original backlog of passengers.
The good news is that we can expect another cloud of ash
to pass over us next week.  More delays!!!!
Our youngest daughter was to have flown to Melbourne
on Monday for an operation that cannot be done here in Tassie but she too was stuck here.
The op has been put off until later in the month.

This is my card for this week at Less is More.
Sorry I didn't make it last week but wasn't feeling too chipper.

Had to lay on the floor to get this photo.  Getting down was easy but you should have seen me trying to get up. LOL
This is  a very much loved stamp that I have had for years.
I stamped it using black Brilliance and embossed it with Psychedelic powder
unfortunately you cannot see the sparkle.
I coloured it with my copics.
The script is some that I bought at a craft show it has lots of words that you can use
together or singly they fit on to a magnetic block and very easy to keep straight.
I have never ever seen them again so dont know if the company still exists.

Less is More- frame it one layer
