Something for that most specialist cutest of friends!

Good morning blogworld,

Well now has that title completely confused you?  I do hope not, but if it has please wait!  Do not run away crying from this poor neglected blog and I will attempt to explain.

It's Monday and being Monday it's Cutie Pie challenge time - aha, things become clearer and if I tell you that the challenge this time is 'For a Special Friend' - a light bulb clicks and all becomes like crystal!

And if it didn't then let me say that over at the Cutie Pies challenge blog this fortnight we'd like to see your cutest cards / projects / creations 'For a Special Friend(s)'.  Simples!

Our challenge is sponsored by the wonderful

 and, as you can see, one lucky winner will win a voucher to spend in their gorgeous online store

This is me wee creation - it is for my daughters' bestest everiest boy-friend (as opposed to her bestest everiest girl-friend!).

The Front Shot:

The Arty Farty:

The Close Up:

I used:

Digi stamp:
Was a freebie from Pollycraft (sadly no longer operating. Boohoo)
coloured with my ProMarkers
chalked background

BoBunny - Blitzen collection

Wot no dies?

Anything else?
Sentiment created by moi
Reindeer - no idea!
Chipboard frame - ages old stash
Fiskars punch
3d gloss on nose

I showed this one to She Who Must be Obeyed (SWMbO) for approval, since it's going to her friend, the response?  It's OK, but print off another one, colour in the skin for me and I'll colour it again!!!!

Ah well, it's only about what 18 years till I can expect her to be married and off my hands?

See you tomorrow


(and it's Christmas all the way now!)

A challenge, or two:

I love Promarkers: Challenge #197 - For a child

Little Miss Muffet challenges: Challenge #75 - You've been framed

Here Come The Boys: Challenge #66 - Anything Goes for the Boys

Divas by Design: Feeling Festive

Graph'It Marker Colouring challenge: Wk 24 - Colour Mixing / Anything Goes.  Well unfortunately I don't have a Mix'It palettte, so if it's alright with you I'll go for the 'Anything Goes'!  Looking forward to my new skin tones and Pink Greys arriving though!
