Halloween Hangover

Beware of the Mummy!

Well I am slowly beginning to catch up with everything even though I have taken another down turn with the asthma and seem to have developed a cold on top of everything else!!  So whilst I have been feeling a touch better I decided I should do at least one challenge card.  I seem nto have backed off of entering challenges at the moment but I think that is purely the time of year.  I must get back on track!!

Anyway...... this card is for the 12 months of halloween challenge at Simply B Stamps.  The instructions
for this were to use only black and white with one other 'halloween' red, orange, lime green or purple.

Here is my card.....

It may not be very 'Halloweeny' but sometimes seeing me first thing in the morning is far worse than any frights you would get from even the scariest of horror films!! 
It has even been joked that I would scare anything away!
So that is why I chose to do this.......  Plus I was just itching to colour the new Betty images!

The image is 'Morning Betty' from the limited digi release at SBS.  If you were unlucky enough to miss this special then she will be available from April in rubber only.
I have coloured her using my cool grey range of promarkers and also my new prisma pencils.
She had to have a hint of the blood shot eye, and I think the red distressed background helps to pick that out.

I would love to read what you think of her.

Simply B Stamps. Simply Challenged No1 entry no.2

Hey look at this ..... 2 posts in one day!!  And with no glasses too... (long story but please excuse any typos, things are a bit fuzzy!)

This is my second entry for the SBS Challenge.  I have had this almost finished for a while and even after braking my glasses this morning I still wanted to finish it.

I have used Valentine Betty and the papers are all from "Be Mine" by Echo Park.  I used a chipboard frame coloured with my promarkers and a few other sticky hearts and flowers to finish.

The photo isn't all that great and doesn't really show its dimension to its best.  Much better in person!
 Right I am off for another lie down.....hopefully I might have some good news from the opticians tomorrow.

Night night friends

Simply B stamps. Simply Challenged No 1

Well who would've thought we would be here in February already!!   Dare I say it but it will be Christmas before we know it!! LOL!!  OK OK stop throwing things at me please!!!

So far my new years resolutions have flown out of the window so I have made them again.  The first one is to get more organised with my challenge entries and DT work.  So to start things off my entry for the first challenge of the year goes to Simply B stamps, ok so its no surprise.  Everyone knows what a fan I am so it was kinda the only way to go really!

This first challenge was to use any "Betty" stamp or image from any of the different collections.  I chose to use the new "Scrapbooking Betty" who I think is just adorable.  All of the papers used are from the same set but I couldn't tell you what it was!! Sorry.  I kept all the colours within the same palette and finished off with some bakers twine.  I didn't use a sentiment as this card can be used for all sorts of different things, even just to write a note. 

Hope you like!

See you soon xxxxx
