Feeling Grey?? xx

Good morning all

Hope this finds you all well?? I'm just plodding along getting my work done and trying find time to fit in me time?? Where does the hours go?

I'm back to share my third GDT for Crafts and Me and this time I got to use the Robin Pushay Friends image! Truthfully I wasn't that looking forward to using this image, its not something I would ever pick. So with that in mind I tired a few attempts with nothing great to show, then I was staring at my pens and thought GREY!! I then got all the different grey tones out and had a play


What do you think?? I used a whole range of Grey Spectrum Noirs in different tones, a touch of yellow to highlight the moon. I then masked over the image and using Black Soot Distress Ink blended in the background before added some Sparkle Pen to make the moon pop. It was a bit of luck that it turned out as it did and I'm rather impressed with myself hehehe



I would like to enter the following Challenges
 Fab and Funky - Bingo (black, Pearls, Die-cuts)

Afternoon all

Thanks for popping by today and maybe saying a wee "hello"!
I'm enjoying some for crafting for me today and even popped open the Christmas stuff ekkkkkk its not long now! Got to get started some time 

One of my lovely friends a fellow Die'sire teamy asked me to crochet her a wee bunny character for her granddaughter! Of course I jumped at the chance but I had never heard of Mr Hoppity ............. but I love a challenge!!


So it turns out this wee guy is from a kids TV show and very popular too!
The pattern I found was not the best and at times made no sense, so good old "make it up" came into some of it! Not bad if I do say so myself heee
 

Before I posted the wee guy off I made a wee card of course to pop in the parcel and even got the Spectrum Noirs out to colour it!

Now enough of my ramblings, I want to share a wee 18th Birthday Box I was asked to make for a "bird lover" Daughter. I was unsure how to go about making this but once I seen the Basic Grey papers I knew a lovely bright colourful box was the way to go








What do you think?? I used some wee owl digi stamps I found here and coloured with my promarkers, the other wee image on the outside is Some Odd Girl Forest Friend fairy and the lil owl girl inside is a Crafts and Me image Melinda and Moohoo, I do love my Hannah Lynne stamps!
