Have yourself a Furry little Christmas.

Time for another Dream Valley Challenge

sponsored by

 I used Di's "Hibernating Hedgehog"

I think this image is just so sweet I didn't want to 
overpower it, so kept the background colours soft,
and the promarker shading subtle.

(close up to show glitter)

Card stock and blue trellis from my Anna Griffin stash.
Blue swirly paper and sentiment Paper Artsy "Raisin" collection.

Short and sweet...just like a hedgehog :D

When projects collide...

Do you remember I had a play day with some
 scene building dies recently?
Well I needed a special Condolence card at the end of last month...
 for a much loved Lady of the woods...
I took the original sunset scene and some laser cut
woodland features...
 and began to add layers...
 keeping the colours Autumnal/sunset.
  then added a frame stamped with leaves...
 coloured with Promarkers...
and a tiny amount of sparkle on the setting sun and windows.
Blessed Be her Spirit XXX

And then my DL asked if I could make
 a second condolence book for the vets she works at.
It was an idea she had for when people had to bring
pets in and "let them go", and it seems to have proved quite
helpful as the original book is now full of loving "thank you"s
to much loved companions.
So this is book 2 ready for use X

As harvests begin and there is a subtle chill in the evening air*WTF Summer!!!!*
I am knitting...
there should be a purple pair of mitts on here too
 but hubby already scavved them for driving gloves
I am making all different pairs, using up balls of wool.
 *and changing patterns as it suits me lol*
but be warned....
knitting and jam making don't really go hand in hand.
Putting fruit on to soften and then starting a new pattern 
can end in gloriously sticky bloodshed mwahahaha!
 And still the roses bloom...
ignorant of the carnage around them.
This one is called "Best Wishes"
and has a very delicate green apple fragrance.
So this busy Bee just keeps plodding along
as life goes on around her.
Be Happy...
Enjoy :D XXX

"I'm seeing creepy dolls?" lol

That was one of the comments from a Medium we saw recently
 that sort of impressed Hubby a little{major league sceptic}
That and that my house looked like the "Dingle's" place bwahahaha :D
*for non Brit's the Dingles are a Gypsy family from tv's Emmerdale*
So this got me back to working on my little Faerie dolls.

The project I was making them for wasn't due to be aired until June 2018,
but it has been cancelled due to work commitments...
So I gets to show you ASAP :D
Here is a little teaser...

You have already seen Cora and Agatha, but now I am working on
Bryony, Erica, Delphine,Flora and Giselle

I will be writing a story to go with them shortly.
Just loving this little troupe of Gypsy Fae :D
