Right better start colouring... oh I do love working with new images, and if you love Tiddly Ink images, don't forget that this fortnight's challenge is anything goes... so head on over and see what the fab DT have made.

Another Mo Manning

OK, so its Sunday morning, went to swim comps with Cam, she got 2 firsts and 2 seconds, beating 3 out of 4 personal times. Great. Tooth (or should I say hole) still hurts, but today will be a crafting day, so that will get my mind off it.
This is another Mo Manning images I bought the other day "heartless. I love how she coloured up, and she has the same look on her face Cam has when I'm ranting at her! LOL. I plan on giving this to her teacher at the end of the term for doing such an amazing job with her at school, and also do a bag of truffles as a thank you gift.
Sooo I better enter the challenge over at Bronte and Bellas Challenges - thankyou or give thanks.
Right.. back to the swimming pools for more training.... I am sure Cam must have webbed feet!

Bizzy Becs - Circles

This is my first DT card for Bizzy Becs, about now I am feeling very grateful that I am on such wonderful DTs. I was bored silly when I stepped down from two wonderful teams thinking that I needed time out.. and went from making 13 cards a month to 5...(whooa, to much time on my hands!). Drastic measure needed... jump in MIC and now Bizzy Becs. I couldn't be any happier, both are located in Australia, just a short plane ride across the ditch!, (funny how I cant get on any NZ DT's).... I am now back up to 8 cards a month... bliss.
Anyhoo... after much rambling, Bizzy Becs challenge this month (yes you get a whole month to play), is to use circles. Yep, we want to see circles on your card/project.... so head on over.. and join in!

My horrible day!

OK, so I have to share this... I needed a tooth pulled today... so off I go to the dentist who happens to be on the second floor.. you head up the steps and at the top turn right to the massage parlour (where massage is the last thing on men's minds.. never did get why its called that!) or turn left to the dum dum dum.... dentist!~

So while I'm sitting in the waiting room, gazing out the window... listening to the poor sod in the next room get the drill, feeling uncomfortable wishing I had of gone to the toilet just one more time .... I see Viv!!! VIV I felt like yelling.. look up... and come up and save me.. or at least hold me down and stop me from running out the door!.... and then I see my cousin Marise, who has a fear reeking out of her pores just thinking of the dentist..(mmm must run in the family).

But alas... my time had come.... it was like walking the green mile (if you have seen that movie). Finally in the chair, tray whipped in front of me... no escape now.... out comes the needle as big as my forearm.. I kid you not!!!! ouch ouch.... then next thing out comes the pliers (probably a proper name for these,,, but hell it does the same thing) ... guess what.. that damn tooth broke at the gum line....NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. so 10 minutes of drilling the tooth out of the gum, blood splatter on my forehead, I am now home, still shaking with fear, and knowing that when this friggin injection wears off I am going to be in a shit load of pain.

Right.. if you have read through all of this.. well done. I applaud you. I am hoping the codine (oh yeah baby) will put me in a happy place and I might try and see if I can create a card.. but most likely it will just knock me out!

Mo Manning card!

Ok... so today I am showing you a card made with the same paper pad Graphic 45 - using a Mo Manning image. I actually made a 5th card.... yep I am on a roll!
This is sort of a non traditional colour for Christmas, but still works well I think.!
