The Challenge of.......The Film Title


~~ be inspired by a film title ~~
and mine is

Singing' in the Rain

I doubt many of you will remember this film it is rather an oldie - a bit like me, LOL.
A 1952 American musical comedy film starring Gene Kelly,  and Debbie Reynolds  - two very popular fimstars of their time
It was accorded its legendary status by contemporary critics and is now frequently described as one of the best musicals ever made.  
I didn't make this up myself, Jeeves told me :)

I haven't used this cute little ducky image before and this was what inspired the choice of film.  When you look back on our 'summer' it is quite appropriate.
The green BP is from one of my favourite collections - polished stone....the image is matted on to mid brown wood effect.......gems with gold rim from Traditional Christmas .....tag from Cream Dream and all can be found here

M' duck is a local term of endearment if you were wondering, lol.

We do hope you will be able to join us for this challenge - it will be interesting to see your choice of film title.
My talented team mates have come up with some brilliant projects again this fortnight,  so do pop over to the CACB blog to check them out .

I'll be sunning myself on holiday as you are reading this so please forgive me if I'm late commenting on your entries.

Thank you for stopping by

Sketch Time at Crafty Ann's


Crafty Ann's Challenge #74

Sketch and/or theme of Autumn colours

I started off with a BG of embossed dots and then made a mat of metallic paper and edged with a pearl frame.
I enlarged one of the pearls and added the large pink flower as a centrepiece.
Three flowers, leaf sprays and lace and job done :)

I used -
Embossed dots + metallic paper
Leaves + pink flower - Eggstavaganza
Pearl + pearl frame + small flowers - Cream Dream
all from Ann's shop here
Lace - elsewhere

We hope you like this sketch and will be able to join us for this challenge -  we will love to see what you create with it .

Golden Wedding Anniversary


A commission from my neighbour's mother for her sister and brother in law.

I'm off on holiday next week for two weeks and have tons to do before I go - yanno, like I***ing and H****work, uggg, as well as some cards, plus hospital appts with hubby.

I love this image and use it a lot for anniversary cards and this sure is a special one.

Paper is one of  Eva Kipler's designs. I fussy cut around the ornate frame, added the image and adhered it to another piece of DP matted on to gold mirri. The mat is fixed with one layer of foam tape and the image/frame with two layers to give a nice bit of dimension.

The gorgeous venise lace was a little extra in my parcel from Linda, Funky Junky's Zibbet shop - thank you Linda :)
I made a scroll with all the details and added flowers from WOC. These I painted with cheapo gold paint and Winsor & Newton iridescent medium

The Pink Elephant  #165 - wedding anniversary
WOC #58 - layer it up
Everybody Art #203 - vintage

Thank you for stopping by and the lovely comments received on previous posts each and every one so much appreciated :)
