Hi all I know it's been a long time since  I've been able to put anything on here but having my little man ryry here now has taken up alot of my time.

Over the past week I've been suffering terribly with my panic/anxiety attacks. and have been trying to get my mind focused and away from them  when i saw betty over at simply betty's fan page on facebook was having a challenge i thought this would be good for me to do. so here's my card for the challenge the stamp can be bought from simply betty's shop  (anyone that hasn't already go and have a look about she has loads of fab ones there ) also pop over and join on the betty's fan page too :) 
I've coloured this one in using pro markers bat queen Betty herself is mainly greys and black except for her hair tail eyes and lips. i done it like that so they would just pop. the flames are a mix of mandarin canary and primrose and the background behind her is just a blue mix.
 I've then mounted her onto a dark snowflake backing paper added a couple of corner peeloffs and made some roses for the bottom of the card

simply betty's challenge

Hi guys OMG sorry I'm soooooo late in getting this up this month but I've had one hell of a month getting my daughter Beth her hubby emden and our grandson ryry home from the states. ( there is a long story to that but i'm not going into that now all i will say is I've got a very happy family with us now and away from all the mental abuse that they were getting)
ANY WAYS on to my card I've only managed to finish one this month the others are all a work in progress and I'll pop them up as soon as they are finished.
so the simply Betty bunny, I've gone with the red and black theme with her the feathers in the corner also has a few strings of gold beading. i just wanted something simple this time with her but couldn't go without the bling lol

Hi guys
so today I've been working on this note book.
I've used the sbs cupid betty, and gone for the just flashes of colour here and there.
The wings are made from the tim holtz embossing folder and i've distressed them just to make them pop.
The pale pink flowers i've made from die cut flowers and layered them. and finished it off with going round with the white hand made paper flowers.
This is the project I'm going to enter into the simply betty fan page challenge as i'm really happy with how it came out.
love and hugs

hi guys for the second time in one day i'm on a roll lol
anyways i've done another book front using the sbs cupid betty digi
my son made these books up at work for me and they are just plain white fronts
so i have a nice blank canvas to work on.

Hi guys sorry it's been a while since i last posted anything we've just had so much going on lately.
As some of you know Beth, Emden and Ry are coming back to the UK. they had planned to later this year anyway but Emdens mum Cheryl was shot just over a month ago and Beth doesn't feel safe raising her son over there any more.
It was our 24th wedding anniversary on Monday (i know i know I'd'd have got less for murder lol)
but it turned out to be the worst anniversary ever. Lee's mum died so we went round to say our good byes and spent time with lee's dad.
the card below is the card I made for Ron. just something very simple and sweet. i didn't want to go down the line of crosses or the hands of god.
so this week has been a week of nipping round both the dads to make sure they are ok (my own mum past 9 years ago 3 days before Christmas) and my dad still has his ups and downs.
Anyway today...
I'm not goinge out the house all this standing up has made my joints in my hips and spine very sore so I decided that i was going to have a sort out on my craft desk.... like that's happened, instead I done the front to my new promarker blends book. I've you the sbs stamp betty antoinette, have I said before I love bettys stamps she is so talented. I'm not sure where i got the backing paper from think it was from a kit fro, granny enchanted blog spot. and I've just finished it off with teh blue peel off border and a few stars.
the book itself is from re-create sltd where my son jay works. 
so I'm now off to try and sort my desk out lol
hugs and kisses
