Life is good......in the shade of a tree


Hello me lovelies how are you fine folk today?
Ive had a few headaches and eye tension this week,
 because i bumped my head a couple of times
 when we were fitting a new carpet in the craft room.

This is the adorable Lazy Kitty from the very 

talented artist Crissy Armstrong.
 I just love this stamp, this cat is everything you expect a cat to be,
sunning him/her self in a tree, (how does the saying go....
Dogs have owners Cats have staff), without 
a care in the world, with just the one eye open
watching the world go by.

I am entering this into the following challenges

Little Miss Muffet Challenge 130: Round in Circles
CCEE Challenge:  CCEE1517 Hug an Australian Day
Inspiration Destination: Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge : Things With Wings + a Sentiment
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 370: Clean And Simple

Have a lovely Thursday my friends and thank you
 all so very  much for stopping by it really does mean a lot :)
Take care my lovelies and i will see you y'all
in blogland TTFN........ Mwah.......xx

Hello my lovelies how are you on this fine Friday

 I didn't eat too many Easter Eggs, because i was busy
redecorating my bedroom.

I'm thrilled to share the post with you peeps today
I have been asked to be a guest designer for Art By Mi Ran
Challenge 30  Anything Goes 



I couldn't believe it when i was chosen  there are so many
beautiful images illustrated by Mi Ran its difficult to
choose only one to colour.

I was given some images to play along with but i chose to colour

the gorgeous Coventina she was illustrated
By Mi ran for Whimsy Stamps as soon as i saw
this stamp i had buy her she is a little water Nymph
and i haven't managed to colour this stamp successfully
so this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity.
 I have coloured my image with Polychromo's its nice to
get the pencils out every now and again.


If you stop by the Challenge Blog there is
certainly now shortage of eye candy the DT have made
 some truly amazing projects.
Have lovely day my friends and please stop by the Challenge
