Love Angel

There have been so many changes over at Cuddly Buddly since I last blogged! New designer Karen Middleton has joined the fabulous designers producing gorgeous digi images, there's a new DT blog called Fabulous Crafty Friends, and if you stop by you can see our latest creations and also get instructions on how to load the fabulous free blog backgrounds - but I'm still fiddling with mine so please cut me some slack! My list of followers and other stuff that was on the side bar is now at the bottom of the page, and unfortunately I've had to do a bit of pruning until I can decide where to put things - it's a bit like that in my life at the moment too!

On to my card, this is Karen's Love Angel digi and I've coloured her with Copics as well as using a piece of Karen's coordinating digi paper. I've also added inked edges and lots of sparkle, but as it was a while ago I created this card I can't be sure what colours I used, but can say the sparkle was Stardust Stickles and Glimmer Mist pearl sprayed on my flowers and leaves, and also painted onto the hearts - a real shimmery creation in real life.

Here's a close up for you. And a reminder that the current theme on the Cuddly Buddly Challenge blog is 'anything goes!' - so you can use any of the digi images available on the Cuddly Buddly web site and be in with a chance of winning a £10 voucher to spend on anything in the Cuddly Buddly shop - how fab is that! And if that's not enough, there's a sticky candy post over on the Fabulously Craft Friends blog too.

I'm busy colouring in a few more images but with most of my crafty stash in boxes it's not easy putting a card together - I might manage a couple later in the week if you are stopping by.

Our move is hapening over the August Bank Holiday weekend, not ideal with the traffic in and out of Cornwall so I'm trying to take the smaller things down at each visit. Yesterday I cleared out Mum's spare bedroom and gave it a blitz so it's ready and waiting for my bed, the phone line should be installed next week so hopefully I wont be too long without internet - but it could be that the pc goes to Mum's before me so I might not be able to link up with the world until I join it.
And this is my new home. The porch is being enclosed in the next few weeks to provide a space for wet cocker spaniels to dry off after visiting the beach. The garage is hopefully going to be a new bathroom at the front with utility area at the back and the new bedrooms will be built along from that. The existing tiny bathroom will become Mum's ensuite and the two small bedrooms she has at the moment will be made into one large bed/sitting room for her with access to a decked area at the back of the bungalow. As you can see the garden is just grass and one small bed of roses, so I've lots of scope to create more flower borders. I'll take more pictures as work progresses.
