There is NO malware on this site!

I've just had a bit of a job getting  into my own blog - a big red banner was saying that elements from Shabby blogs .com was carrying Malware. - It was not! I checked it with the Google help site and it was all hunky dory but I took off the background anyway for the moment just to be on the safe side.

Please come back -  I'm not germy, honest....!  LOL!

Scrap Surfing.....

I have so many decent scraps of paper and card in my room that I have decided that my next five cards are going to be made entirely with the darn things!  I'm trying to give some away but when I see them, it's like giving my children away...! Addicted...? You really think so...? Well, YE.E.ES!

Here's the first one. It's a Mo Manning image of her Geisha Girl and it's coloured, not Copics for a change,  it's Trias.   I coloured three of the same image with Copics, Tiras and the Marvy Alcohol Markers. There was a fourth coloured with Promarkers. That met the bin in short order! LOL!

No, Copics is King, followed by Trias. The Marvy's I will use on unimportant large areas until they run out and then I might just fill them with Copics ink, as the brush is thicker than the Copics one and therefore adds to the arsenal!

I really will have to part with some though....!

This week-end I've also been digi-doodling and I have some faeries on the way....  I think they're adorable as they are based on drawings of my baby granddaughter Ada when she was a little younger.  

Hopefully, I'll ger a card made with the first one this week!

Midweek Magnolias - White Space

I do look forward to a time when I have a bit more time to myself - one card a week is starvation rations in my book...! LOL!  I'd love to get back to some of my other challenge blogs but, sadly, I just don't have the time at the minute. My grandbabbies do and always will come first.

I've just got shut of them. 7:30!  Much as I love them, and I am seriously obsessed with them, I heave a sigh of relief as that door closes behind them....until I go back into the nursery and conservatory...! OMG! They look like a bomb going off would actually make them tidier!

Well, they can stay like that until I've had a breather!


I have just completed my Midweek Magnolia card for this week and here it is.  The theme this week is White Space. Well, it's white......! LOL!  

Don't 'do' space! LOL! I can sometimes make a KISS card but this one would not behave - it wanted more...

I've only coloured my Tilda's skin and hair (and just a touch of C1 on the violin) with my trusty Copics - the gown and wings are tinted with my Pearly Mettallic Pallette. Sadly, the lovely irridescence did not photograph well in the strong sunlight.

I'm too tired after a 12hr day with two toddlers to take another though!


BUGGER IT!   Too late!  (Must try harder...)

MIdweek Magnolia's Challenge - Monochrome

It's been a little while coming but here's my current entry for Midweek Magnolias! This week it's a Monochrome theme and being me, I've chosen a purple pallette. No change there then! LOL! 

The lovely sketch I've used is by my friend and fellow Trimmie, Janjanetta and is featured in this week's Sketch Challenge on Trimcraft, my home forum.


I've a week off from the ankle-biters!  Blackpool beware - they're at a b&b near you..! You have been warned! LOL!

I also have a freebie for my bloggy buddies. It's already up over on Eiglassing and her he is, my latest digi, 'Bok Bok'.  No prizes for guessing from where the inspiration for him comes!

                            Offer now finished - photo removed.

Please feel free to use him and enjoy but I would appreciate it if you would leave a small credit to Eiglas when you do.

I also have some stash on sake at the minute as my craft room was barely enterable....... 
 I've had a bit of a clearout and my excess stash is over at my Photobucket here complete with big piccies and prices.  

If you see anything you like please e-mail me at eiglas 'at' (using the normal format - I just use that format on here so a bot can't pick it up) telling me what you want and where you want it posting. 

It's best to check the p&p with me first as I will weigh in each order separately - I won't charge you more postage than the P.O charges me.

I think that's all ......  for now at least!

Lots going on at Chez Eiglas... ;)

I've been home from work now for nearly three months - and it has been wonderful...! I've drawn, painted, had an amazing time with ...
