Saturday 3 August 2013


Morning gorgeous people. I hope the day is treating you right so far. How about a little freebie or two to brighten your day? As custom now has it, as it's the first Saturday in the month, Rick St Dennis is giving away some more images. One on the Sparkle and Glitter blog - for those cute loving crafters and one that is slightly more unusual on the Airless Chambers blog.
There is no challenge for a couple of months. Don't we all need a bit of a break sometimes? These will resume in October but the monthly freebies will continue as usual. Our generous but (sometimes evil)  boss came up with something to test us, on the EDT, though. We had to colour the horns on Twonki and the bathing suit on Bitsy in a colour that began with the same letter as our own name. That set my head off on a tangent and came up with several colours in the end the began with "H".
Hormagaunt Purple
Hot Pink
Hunter Green
Helion Green
Hansa Yellow
Harvest Gold
So out came the promarkers. These are the images after colouring.

Now to make something with them. As my usual followers will know, cute is not something that I normally do. This time it all came together quite easily. I think they turned out ok. I'm sure you'll let me know if I "boobed"

Bitsy on the Beach
 Using freebie papers from a magazine, matted onto a sandy coloured cs. A bit of yellow lace and lilac/purple ribbon and some small shells to decorate. The stickles used were waterfall and crystal. I followed the sketch at Crafting Musketeers for my inspiration.
on a lilac coloured cs tag. With die cut purple and gold squares. Some flowers from stash and a stamped sentiment, cut up added.

Well that's just my examples, You'll have to visit the Sparkle and Glitter and Airless Chambers blogs to snag your copy of these freebies and ogle at the variation with the makes by the other girls.

I'd like to enter Bitsy into the challenge at
