Southern Gals Challenge - Baby Baby...!

This week the Southern Gals have turned their attention to all things maternal - and that means babies!

As you probably know. I have one or two digi-stamps of babies.....and also baby-themed digital paper kits, but this time I've used one of my Eiglas digi-stamps, called 'A Little Secret...' portraying a pregnant young woman, which was actually a bespoke drawing I did for a friend who was making a card for one of her pregnant friends.

Looking at it now, I wished I'd put a bow on it too and I shall, on the 'real' one!  I may take another photo later.  Anyway, I'm sure the cards over at Southern Gals are much better than mine anyway. Why not go have a look?

My Mikey's Birthday.... I made him a card!
My Hubby, Nic, said he's sick of looking at my usual confection of faceless girls and flowers and to make something different.
So I did.....

Happy Birthday Mikey!

Father's Day Verse

As I no longer have a Dad to make a Father's Day Card for, I thought I'd pass this one of mine over to those of my friends that might like to use it this week.


When I was only little,
sitting at your knee
I used to think of all the things
that you would do for me.
You’d fight my night-time dragons
well, if I’d asked you to, you would,
and you’d have fought my battles too
if I’d have said you could.
You’d fly in to protect me
if danger was around
and smite it with your fiery sword and make it go to ground.
As I grew older I would see
you weren’t a Superman,
no Bat-car waiting in the wings
- just a Mini-van.
But what was there was real and true
and sincere without fail,
you were Superdad instead, the not-quite perfect Male!
You may not be a Rambo
A Terminator 2
you’re not a Superhero Dad
but I’m just glad, you’re you!

Hope you enjoy using it because in a way, you'll be using it for my Dad too!

Southern Gals! - Things with Wings!

It's that time of the month again!  The lasses at Southern Gals have a theme of 'Things with Wings' this week and in honour of this occasion I have launched a new collection of digis the Eiglas Faeries.

Being of a 'certain age' I have fond memories of the illustrations in 1950's 'faery-tale' books and as I have two willing and able models to myself most days, I thought it would be nice to make some 'faery' drawings with a 1950's feel.

This card is the debut of my 'Bobbikin'. He's only a baby faery and is just sitting on his toadstool trying to think up mischief.  I hope you like him although I've already had some 'eeukk's directed at his antennae so he's available 'naked' too (although the 1950's faeries did have them!)!

Please do pop over to Southern Gals - they're an incredibly talented  team and will inspire you to even greater pieces of art!

The model for my 'Bobbikin' was, again, my Ada although he wanted to be a boy!  He's coloured with my Copics but this particular image I printed onto glossy paper too. The bp is Kay & Co from their 'Mega-pad' grunge selection.

Hope you like him and you trip 'down under'!


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 ...
