He's eventually let me on to the dashboard!!

My goodness ever felt like giving up well I have all weekend but for some strange reason he's let me on tonight!! I have had to delete some things from the side and the list of blogs that I follow but can still get to them for commenting so he's not won!!!

Just hope I get to come back on tomorrow otherwise he will win!!!!!!!

Will have to have a go at putting back my list of blogs as I don't like not seeing them!!

Just thought I would show you a card I made over the weekend with my goodies that I won from Nicole in Germany view her fab blog here!!!

Just adore these images so had to ink it up straight away.

Everything on my card was candy except the flowers from my stash!!

Don't want to bore you with my problems but may not be posting much over the next few weeks as things are not good at the moment and I just cant get motivated!!! Just didn't want you to think that I had disappeared.

Love as always Chanelle xxxxx

What a nightmare!!!!!!

What a week Mr blogger is playing up for me again and its taken days to get back on line properly!! So I'm sooooooooooo sorrrrry for not commenting on your blogs this week just feel so bad!

Anyway this card is made up of my new found love of colouring and these sweet Magnolias which I just adore so hopefully if I can keep on my blog will show you some more.

These flowers are from my stash and I found these wonderful wings which I have painted with Tim Holts crackle paint.

My magnolia is just beautiful but I'm sorry I don't know whats shes called but doesn't she look fab coloured with my pro markers.

The papers are spotted bazzil in pink & white with a lovely pink swirly paper from Prima. I have also used my Tim Holts flourish in a darker pink bazzil.

I have also stamped a sentiment onto linen ribbon.

Hope you like it!!!

A big hello to my new followers I'm so excited to welcome you to my blog and I promise I will be a lot better with my commenting if Mr Blogger will play!!

Had a fabulous afternoon xxx

Well no card today just two images from this afternoons class over at The Craft Box. Had great company and was extra special as I went with Kerry my niece.

We met Michelle to day from Meesh's house of cards who did a class in Pro Markers was really looking forward to the class as I have been following Michelle for a while and couldn't wait for the class as her colouring is just to die for and well worth a look.

Well it was such an enjoyable class and just love the images that we coloured.

I must say I have learnt some great techniques with the pro markers

My only problem now is that I need more Pro markers!!! lol

Anyway I'm off now to colour and to look at your beautiful post and hopefully if Mr Blogger is playing leave some love!!!

Another side view just so you can see the gorgeous heart cut outs!!

The little satin flowers where 50p a packet from home bargains but they look just right with the feather and pins from my stash.

LOTV sentiment stamped onto spellbinders Fancy Tags three also from the Craft Box.

Please pop over to see the girls creations they are all so divine and well worth a nosey.

Boy do I hate sewing!!

Just a quick post as we are having a new boiler fitted today!! Boy when things start to go wrong do they go wrong!!!!

Anyway I managed to get to my craft class this week at the Craft Box which was very therapeutic as always!!!! Not!! we did sewing well it took ages so I had to colour my image when I got back home so here she is.

This beautiful Tilda was from the valentine collection this year and she is just Divine! (I must admit to already having her but still to ink her up!!) lol

The papers I'm sorry I didn't ask but they go so well with the plain green card.
Added some stickles to the flowers and as you can see they are still wet. Lots of beautiful green gems and some MS branch and Prima leaves around the flowers.

Got to go now as I'm doing my DT work and making tea for the gas fitter!!!

Sorry forgot to add a big welcome to my new followers and thank you to everyone for your beautiful comments they really are such a confidence boost!!

Shower of Flowers xx

Well a big sorry to all my followers and blog friends and thank you for all your great comments about help with my virus I really appreciated all of them and now I'm hopefully back on line and can get back to visiting all your lovely blogs and leave comments to you all!!!

Here is this weeks challenge over at Sweet Pea Stamps and the theme is "Shower of Flowers" so out came the scissors and off I went.

The image is my favourite and was the first sweet pea stamp I ever purchased and the lovely Amy has made it into decoupage and pyramage images which are a must!! Also she has loads of new goodies on The Crafty Purple Frog site which you can find here!! Just hope you have never ending pockets because they are all so lush and must haves!!!

Well I know I mentioned the image but just look at these flowers and each one is so lovingly cut out they are from Basic Grey and I think they are called "infuse" but not sure.

The image is "Red Hearts" and boy I just love her as soon as Amy sent me it I knew she was the one for me!!!

Sorry the background is just plain black bazzil with the gorgeous flowers flowing over it with the yummy image.

Hope you like her as much as me and please pop over to DT teams blogs are they are as awesome as ever and some fab prizes up for grabs.

Love Chanelle xxxx

Having a nightmare!!!!!!!!!

I can't tell you how frustrated I am at the moment!! My computer keeps telling me I have a virus and no matter what we do we can't get rid of it. Every scan we do says that there is nothing there but still it lingers!!

Any way this is my new Tatty Button stamp which I have had a few weeks and just inked this weekend.

I have coloured her with my pro markers and edges in distress inks.

The flowers are are my new Marianne die edged with stickles.

I have added EK success punched foliage, butterfly's and a craftwork cards sentiment.

The beautiful papers are "Tickled Pink" from my minds eye.

I am sorry for not doing much commenting at the moment but I keep trying but its taking for ever with the stupid virus alert!! Will be taking it to the computer shop tomorrow to see what they can do!!

A big welcome to my new followers and thanks again for the lovely comments you leave.

Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend the weather in Sheffield has been lovely but a little windy!!!!

Love Chanelle xxxxxx
