treasures2 William and Jeffrey1

The winner is…


Big congratulations sweetie, send me your address and I’ll pop your prize in the post.


Now for my 2nd thing that I want to tell you about.

There is a special lady who deals with pain every day, I don’t mean a niggling pain I mean the sort of pain that knocks you off your feet and lands you in bed, Karen has been struggling along waiting for a referral and just can’t take it any more and needs to go private, she is raising funds to do this and you can read her story here I bet most of you know her from the Crafters Companion forum.

She is very talented and is doing this by selling her design kits so pop by and take a look.

Ribbon Storage

My name is Jak Heath and I am a Ribbonholic

Jak Chibi

So much so that I had to buy five new shelves at Ikea, just to house some of my ribbon reels, the shelves are picture shelves and have a little lip at the front which is perfect for stopping the reels from rolling off, they cost £8.29 and as you can see in the pictures below they are also perfect for housing Martha Stewart and EK Success border punches.

I still have loads of ribbon in boxes and I intend trying to get some empty plastic ribbon reels to get them out of the boxes and onto my shelves.


I think I could set up shop lol!


I could do with a few more blue and a few more black methinks. Honest I need them all.


If any ribbon shops have some spare empty ribbon reels that need a good home please contact me.

To be “Frank”

Be afraid…. be very afraid.

I remember watching Frankenstein on TV when I was young with a cushion over my face and my eyes like saucers peeping over the top.

Thankfully this one is kind of cute.

Frank by Just Inklined is coloured with Promarkers by Letraset 

Background papers are from  Shery K Designs



Some snazzy ribbon and some puffed letter stickers, and a Drippy Goo paper punch by Martha Stewart all add to the effect.

Harley Rider

Angels come in many forms and this just happens to be one Hell of an Angel.

Harley Rider by Kenny K is sure to please the man in your life.

She doesn’t come with the wings and tyre I added them but they fit together perfectly, maybe a thought for Kenny when releasing his images.


Coloured with Promarkers and Flex Markers by Letraset  and teamed with a Stampin Up speciality card and layered with black and red card, some satin ribbon and a key charm to finish.

I happened upon some digi stamps to raise some funds for a very worthy cause at Fundraising for Lyndall there are some wonderful digi’s and also prizes to be won but please remember to read Lyndall’s story written by her good friend here, They say that 1 in 3 of us will get Cancer and that everyone of us will know or have lost someone with this terrible illness, I know it has touched two of my family members and a very good friend of mine too.

Here is just one of the digi stamps that you could purchase to help.

Dream and Grandson Jack

I did a card the Dream Girl earlier and just had to make a card with Dream the boy version by Mo’s Digital pencil he’s simply gorgeous. I coloured him with Promarkers and Flex Markers by Letraset and love the result.


I used Vintage seam binding and Stampin Up designer papers and also a Nestabilities scalloped oval, the balloons are a craft punch and a bit oftwine for the balloon string.


We had Jack with us tonight he’s such a busy little chap, he helped me water the plants in the garden then took a seat to relax after working so hard, I bet you didn’t know that I had my own real life garden gnome.

Here he is sitting on his toadstool.

Promarker Tutorial Video Winner

Gosh I nearly forgot to do the draw for this, I’m going to blame it on a lazy Sunday, I was shattered after the Promarker class yesterday I forgot just how much a full day takes it out of me, still suffering with a bad back and it tends to go from being very uncomfortable to being unbearable and there is no warning sign in between. I think my days of full days tutorials and full days demo’s are numbered.

I totally forgot to take pictures on the day, but the class was amazing and all of their projects were fabulous, many of them were just needing the guidelines and the confidence to do it. I’m thinking they will be Promarker experts within a few weeks of practice.

So here is a peek of what we did.

promarker class

We covered lots of topics from hair colouring to drop shadows and backgrounds to curved shading.

Thanks Mo “ Mo’s Digital Pencil “  and Just Inklined for allowing me to use a couple of your images.

So on to the winners of the Tutorial Video's.

114. Eve Hammond and 433. Fiona

If you could both drop me an email with the subject marked as Promarker Video Winner and include your details I will pop them in the post for you.

Back to School with Spectrum Noirs

As a few of you had asked my opinion on Spectrum Noirs I thought it would be nice to road test them and give them a whirl, so here goes.

Firstly an image coloured with them.

Back to School by Mo’s Digital Pencil  was my image choice to try out the pens, one of the first things that I notice about the pens was that the nib needed to be primed by that I mean scribbling on a scrap piece of card to get the ink through to the nib, this ensured it would be wet enough to blend colours successfully, I also got best result by laying down the light shades first then building up the darker areas and then going back to the lighter shade and dragging from the dark through to the light shade.

In honesty a good value for money pen and can’t wait to see more shades in it.

to school c

For me the downside to the Spectrum Noirs has to be this….

spectrum noirs

My husband Chris thinks that he has shares on them ha ha.

They won’t stop me using other brands I still love my Promarkers and my Copic pens instead I will use them alongside my others and they do deserve a place alongside them..

Come Hither……

I do hope you have some garlic at the ready and I suggest you hang it from your computer screen before you read on.

Come Hither by Mo’s Digital Pencil 

who could resist this handsome Vampire.

come hither1

Coloured with Copic markers, I decided on none traditional Halloween colours as I wanted it to be a little Mystic in appearance.

It was a bit like challenge Aneka to make the card as both myself, Mina, and Mo were racing to get it coloured up, of course they won as some of us needed to go to work then have a Granny nap when they got home.
