An Announcement

Hello all.
So sorry to have been so absent here in blogland. So much going on here - not all of it good.
The job is still keeping me busy, along with the dog walking and the housework and the kids - blah-blah. Ya know how it goes.
 
BUT the major killer is the new European VAT Law that comes into effect on 1st January 2015. I have been mooching around trying to find a way of staying in business without having to do tonnes of paperwork and multiple tax returns per year, but to no avail, so:
 

I am deeply saddened about the above announcement folks. There will be many very small micro-businesses like myself following this course of action due to the new Laws coming into effect on 1st January 2015.

Many thanks Europe.

I would like to thank every one of you who have supported me over the few years I have been in business. I am truly grateful to have had you visit my store and collect your favourite images to print and colour, and I have very much enjoyed seeing your fabulous creations using my images!!

BUT

I am not totally disappearing, as I have mentioned above.

Delicious Doodles images are now in store at Card Making Downloads and I am also joining the fabulously creepy family over at Smeared Ink with my Delicious Darkness images, so you will still be able to collect your favourites - just under a different name!

So, to sum up - get your images while you can folks!

I hope you will visit me in the above mentioned stores, and still post your beautiful (and wicked) creations in the facebook groups!??

See you there folks!

OMG - A Post from Me!!

OMFG - has it really been over three months since I blogged last??!!!!

Just goes to show how a 'proper' job takes over your life. No time for the fun stuff any more. (sad face!)

I have thrown a quick digital make together though for the new theme at Haunted Design House this fortnight.

Ferocious Furballs
is the new challenge theme. Interpret it any way you'd like,
just make sure an animal of some sort, is involved in some way.
Maybe use a gruesome guinea pig, or some wicked waterfowl
as your inspiration. Who knows, maybe a macabre muskrat
and a catatonic coon hound are more to your liking.
Make it weird, wacky, scary or clinical. Just don't make it cute!!

I came up with a new 'dark side' image for this theme, in the shape of this wee chappie -



And here he is all digitally coloured up and layered onto one of my Beastly Paper Pack:


A quick bit of news for you too!

On Wednesday there will be a NEW Challenge Blog up and running - strictly for the DARKsiders amongst us!



Featuring my darker images from the

A month-long challenge, going live on the 13th of each month. No need to use my Delicious Darkness images, although we'd love to see you using them of course!!

Hope to see you there folks!

A Little Chemistry

Hellloooooo Blogging Buddies!

How are you all keeping these days? Hope life is treating you well??

I'm here today with a very quick make.

The current challenge at HDH is:

"Working in the lab, late one night".
Basically, we'd like to see your interpretation of a
mad scientist's lab, his creations, experiments, rats, beakers, etc..
Or maybe even your own experimentation. Be creative!


So I doodled another little 'Halloweenie' character to go with the rest of the collection.
This little fella is available in my Delicious Darkness Shop, and is named 'Halloweenie - Crazy Chemist':


He has been coloured digitally and printed three times for fussy cutting and layering up with foam pads. He was then layered onto some yellow card and stuck to a green base before edging with black ink.


Told you it was quick!! lol.
I was running out of time - got me a busy week ahead. Interviews, fetching Mum from airport, and a jollie planned for next week so I won't be around until 12th May!!

Catch ya later folks!!

Pretty Lillies

Helloooo my luvvlies!
How are you all keeping these days?? Hope all is well in your neck of the woods...?

Blowing a hoolie up here right now, just started raining too - shame, was nice earlier and I got some more seeds planted in the garden and greenhouse.

Thought I would pop by and show off the card I made for my Mum for Mother's Day. I know, I'm a bit behind in showing it, but I was a bit peeved that my Mum hadn't got it in time. Damned PO people kept a hold of it and asked for more money!! And that was after I had it put through the slot thingy in our local PO!! Went through fine up here. . . Pain in the butt...

Anyhoose, I went all pink and fluffy for this one.
Coloured up my Delicious Doodles 'Lilleth' image, and made my own papers for the backing. You can get those HERE


I cut a die frame out of some pink card I had so I could pop the image in it. I printed out my scanned in coloured image a few times so I could 'pop up' little elements like some of the flowers.


I dug out my feathers and found this gorgeous vibrant pink one that was just the right colour for this make and stuck it behind the image/frame. Then I rummaged round the ribbon drawer and found some bits to match.

Used some of those 'candy' dot things, in the corners and on the horizontal ribbon to tie it all together. Then it was all mounted onto some green bazzill before being put onto the plain white card base.


Here's hoping that Mum has this now.
