So if you're wondering that I've been abducted by aliens......nah, just can't get a decent reception for long enough to post much.
Harvey loves the beach as usual, hates the sea...as usual! LOL
Can't even put a picture up as the signal is too weak.
Hope you're missing me just a little! I will be back in business on Saturday or Sunday.
Ta ta for now!!! Viv xxx

I was visiting one of my favourite bloggers, ILA and saw her gorgeous background.
Asked her for the info and she generously gave me the link to this site.......... Cute Blog Layouts.
The site owner, Ingrid, is a very talented lady who makes layouts, freely given, in return for crediting her with them and displaying her banner on your blog.
She has so many pretty layouts, I will probably change this one later and try another.
Give her a visit and see for yourself.

I combined two challenges for this card. Simon Says Stamp, You have to make a card using the colours, yellow and green. (It doesn't have to just be those two colours, just as long as they are in the design somewhere. I like to stick to the rule a bit rigidly though, as I think it's more of a challenge then) and Our Creative corner's latest sketch challenge.
Now I've had my daily card fix, I'd better stir me stumps and get something done! (Might make another later).
Have a wonderful Easter monday and thanks for dropping by. Viv xx

Isn't this a cute image? It's called 'True Love' and the name on the side of the stamp says 'Hobby Arts'.
I coloured the love -owls, (can't really call 'em love -birds, or can I LOL)! with Copics.
The DP is from SU and the CS is Bazzil Basics.
I 'blushed' the image with SU's Bashful Blue. Ribbon from my stash and the sentiment was done on my PC.
I can't in all honesty say that I love the colours of the owls, so look out for more as I'll be practicing with these 'till I'm happy with the colours.
Hope you're all having a Happy Easter!! Viv xx

Copic Colour Challenge duz what it says on the tin and I'm up for it! Brave aren't I! LOL
Here's my card for Challenge #8.
I used only the three colours stated and used the blender pen to get the various tones.
The stamped image was taken from my friend Pauline's SU set.
Don't know the name. Pauline will tell me.
(Gotta get me this set, it's SO good for men's cards).
If you look carefully at my sample for the Stamps and Smiles challenge below this post, you'll see that I followed the Copic Colour Challenge #7.
I coloured Cuppy with Copics and shaded my fabulous Top Note die (thank you Jennifer), with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose, using that wooden thingy I can never remember the name of. Mostly SU papers, but the spotted one is from the Making Memories 'Cosmo Pink' collection.
Thanks for visiting. Viv xxx

I’m afraid it’s a bit hurried as Hubby was rushed into hospital yesterday morning with a suspected heart attack and I was there all day.
Please check out the samples from the other Fresh Batch team members too.
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment, I LOVE 'em!
