CraftyCatz challenge #489 ATG

Morning to all and I hope you are all well. I am more than happy to say when we heard Australia had finally got a good downpour I almost cried, its been horrific for all concerned, I pray it never happens again.
OK, now to our challenge this week, the optional theme was chosen by our lovely Billie and she wants to see something funny...we have a wonderful sponsor once again, this week its Dr Digi and you can find all the images HERE
For my card I got to use this cutie, she just makes me smile and she is called Candy Daisy
She is coloured with Copic for her skin tones and wellies and Flex markers, the sentiment was PC generated, it just came to mind when I saw her. I also used polychromos for the grass and glossy accents for her glasses and lolly pop.The DP is Crafts Sensations.
Hope you will come over, see the girls creations and join in the fun.
Have a lovely day.xx

Our optional theme was chosen by our Boss lady AuntySue, Animals....oh nooo, I am not good at colouring them in, I fail everytime I think but you have to try...
Here is my offering, please forgive me...haha..
This little guy made me smile, which is always a bonus.I printed him onto some Make it Colour blending card, I only started using this last year and its fabulous, I have tried so many and this is amazing and worth every penny, plus I just ordered a pack from Elaine and it was free He was coloured with Flex markers, I die cut some words from a DP I had and I used glossy accents on the balloons and his hat.

A card a Tag and a Merry Christmas from Me.....

Hi everyone, well we are almost there, so much going on, I have all the gift shopping done and wrapped, the cards are done and dusted and my food shop will be delivered in the morning, so fingers crossed its all sorted...I hope your all doing ok, it can all get abit much at times but yesterday in the middle of my latest break with reality my lovely postman calls and handed me a package, it was a surprise gift from a very good friend of mine, I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened it and found some Copic have wanted to try them forever but just can't manage it, you know who you are my lovely pal, you made my year.....I hope your as lucky to have friends like that in life, not just for the surprise gifts, but for the chats we share and the daily moan and groan we all have...haha
Ok so I have a card to show you and a cheeky little imp on a Tag, both are Mo Manning images
Coloured with Promarkers, the lattice background was from a friend and it was to be a Shaker card but I couldn't find what I wanted so I put some of those dot things we use can't think of the correct name, they kind of shake but not really, good job Sue knows me well...haha

This little tag went with a little gift I sent also, I love her and added the sentiment on the PC
I think thats it from me, I still have things to do but will keep checking your blogs to see what I'm missing.I will enter into the following..

 I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas to remember and lets hope the new year brings lots of good things with it, oh and please pray for us to get some snow, my grandkids..{and me} are so looking forward to waking up to a snowy landscape,so pretty.....lots of love to you all and a big Thankyou for the support over the past
