Corinne's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop

Today belongs to our very own BRINCH!!!
Its Corinne's birthday.....but not her twin Irene's!
Those of us at the SBS DT and Fan Page decided to do a surprise blog hop just to show how much we really care about the wicked witch!!!!!
Here is the blog hop list incase you have missed any of the witty and cheeky comments ... they are certianly worth a look at!
Here is my card.......... I had many ideas for sentiments for this including 'I may be a bitch but at least I am beautiful', but I thought I would just keep it cute and simple....... just like Corinne herself!!!

Happy Birthday Corinne!!!  Love you really!!!

Traditional Christmas at SCC

I am having a nightmare of a day so I will keep this short and sweet...... it has taken me nearly all day just to get this far ........ everything has gone wrong!
It started off by finding out the card I had originally done for this challenge had been pinched by my boy to give to one of his many girlfriends at school...... I knew nothing about this till I went to photograph it.  I am sure you can imagine my reaction..............
Anyway here is the replacement card...... oh and I haven't been able to watermark it becuse the computer where that is saved is dead as a door nail with a totally broken power lead so it won't load!!

New Steampunk Collection 4

Yesterday you saw the fabulous calendar Corinne made.  I keep trying to get her to send it to me!

Anyway, here are the original paintings we had to work with.

Aren't they stunning!!!!

Ok so you may be a little scared of these..... but dont be.... just take a deep breath and let loose with your pens! 

All Hallows Read

I blew this image up to full A4 size and used it on one of my hardback sketch book.
Last Rose of Summer

A male card
The Family in Dunwich

Again, another full A4 size image used to alter a clipboard.  This is now hanging next to my desk with my to do lists on it!!
Lor and Nor Twins

I have used this to alter my smash book
Death and the Maiden

My favourite from this collection!!  This is my diary for 2013
And finally

Dance with Death

Another altered notebook

As you can tell, once again, I LOVE these images and have enjoyed colouring these.  I seem to colour these totally different to how I colour other images.  

I hope you like these and are going to take the plunge and give them a go.  

Here is a quick reminder of fabulous deals Betty has going on at the moment.

All are available today, and the current discount codes on these awesome images are valid!  

With the release of this Steampunk Classic Collection 4 I am going to have a mini giveaway... If you make a purchase of $15 or more, a winner will be chosen at Random, to win 6 Future Steampunk Lines!  That means the next 6 lines in 2013 is all yours free!  
Winner will be announced Tuesday Morning at 8am!  

I get many comments on how wonderful these images are but how intimidated everyone is by them...don't be!  They are awfully fun to color and the end result is always beautiful!  Take a stab at them, I promise you will enjoy it!

These Steampunks are available in digi for the time being.  Once made into rubber the digi versions will be discontinued.  Rubber is in production at the moment and I will have an update on when the rubber is available as soon as I get the info myself... with the Holidays there are delays everywhere!

This fortnights challenge from That Craft Place is a recipe

1 image
2 papers
3 colours 
4 embellishments

I made a christmas card for my nephew who is only 16 months old..... I wanted to make it fun for him to look at and touch..... the cinnamon sticks even make it smell!!

I have used the super sweet Edwin skiing stamp from magnolia and coloured him using the 'No lines' technique. 
I love the Make It Crafty chipboards and this snowflake border is beautiful.  I covered this along with the paper edges and the cinnamon sticks in distress paint.


I would like to enter this into the following challenges
