I've been ccing

Cyber cropping that is.

Two of my favorite places to pop in for some scrappy chat and inspiration were ccing this weekend so I have played along with a few challenges. My printer ran out of ink so I had to work with pre printed pics and I didn't have many here so I played around with the card challenge mainly.

I'll share what I have done a little later in the post.

This week sees the end to Missy's school holidays although they don't go back till Tuesday as Monday is a pupil free day.

Craig had this week at home with Missy so she didn't need to have two weeks in day care. Next holidays I will take a week of. Lucky he did though as he has hurt his back on Wednesday. Two trips to the physio and a three hour wait at the hospital for some pain killers yesterday has been the highlight of his week off.

Tuesday my friend and I went to see the How to train a dragon and loved it although Missy was chatting through the movie quiet a bit. So annoying. When we got home I snapped a few pics of Missy and Reenie out side.

Missy's chalk town. It got washed away in the rain the next day.

Missy and Reenie.

and I just love this one.
Reenie had jumped of the bench and sat in front of the garden animals and I just sat and waited for her to look my way.

Friday we headed up to Mum's and caught up with my sister and her two children for a play and a chat.

Most of the weekend has been spent here at home. Missy had a pj day today and I attacked the house so it is clean for a few days again.

Here are the cards I did for Lisa's cyber crop card challenge.

I needed some boy cards so pulled out one of my Stampin up stamp sets and my copics for a play. I've come to the conclusion that boy cards are so not me.

Here are the colours I used on my car.

E08, BG93, C3 and C7

They also had a blind scrap style challenge that included a card and a layout. I did the card and love what I have done. Will load it up once we are able too.



I was lucky enough to have three pic already printed to play around with for Shell's challenge.

Shell managed to do her sample layout using no patterned paper at all and I thought I'd give it a try too. lol Thank goodness I had a stash of K and Co die cuts as I was finding it sooooo hard.


Lime Tart

I had some of the left overs from the April kit out the other day and thought I'd have another go at colouring in the Hippo ballerina stamp from Motivet. I messed up my first attempt and ended up binning it.

I lost the little bit of paper I wrote down the colours on but I am sure they were.

YR04, YR07, C1 and C3.

lol Since I lost that bit of paper I am now planning on getting myself a little note book just for my copic info.

I played around with colouring some more this afternoon. I just have to put my image onto a card now. Hopefully tomorrow night.

Well that's about it from me for now.
As always thanks for popping in, any comments and happy creating.
