Its buttons and bows at Pennys Paper Crafty Challenge

Hi Again


I'm playing catch up now with my missing DT posts - but only because I've hijacked my sons Apple Mac - he's not at all impressed that I've taken up residence at his desk in this bedroom to use his super dooper machine lol - so its not going to be a long term thing, I still need to get things sorted on my laptop - but it's not getting any better - I'm having problems with commenting too now, on some blogs its no problem, on others the comments box is just a white box saying "resolving host" - I haven't got time to craft, blog and fix computers so for the minute I'm just having to struggle with things as they are : (
so please forgive me if I haven't called on you lately - I'll keep trying x

Anyway on the bright side here's my post for

Pennys Paper Crafty Challenge 
(due yesterday)

The theme is 

Buttons and Bows 

and our sponsors this week are 

Bugaboo Stamps


and 

Meljens Designs


There are some lovely designs from the DT girls this week - you should pop over to take a look


I got to use this cute little boy from Bugaboo stamps 
he's called Kidz boy puppy- and is available here

I made this fore my grandson to give to his Mammy (my daughter)
for her birthday next week


I decided to give the spectrum noire pens a try (mainly because I needed to buy a few ink refills for my copics - so I thought I'd spend the money on pens rather than ink)  I was really impressed, they blend very well and are easy to use, the method is different but with a bit of practice (spot my deliberate mistake!!) they're definitely worth the money (and a lot cheaper than copics).  I only bought a few but might well buy some more as my copics need to be refilled

This is what I did ,,,,

Image - Kidz boy puppy from bugaboo stamps

Aww!! what a cutie he is, Great colouring too Judith. I bought a full set of Red and Green last year but can't get away with them at all!
I also have quite a few Copics and refills and hardly use them either....lol I seem to default to my Promarkers everytime :o)

Hi Judith a wonderful easel card for your little grandson to give his mum. They had a really big set of Spectum Noir on Create and Craft yesterday I was tempted but I have spent so much on all my Copics and now gradually getting all the re-inkers it seemed silly. Susan xx
