EYE CANDY and lots of it-lol

Well I got the new kit finished yesterday- and that's the reason I didn't get to blog- Oh goodness for ONCE on this kit- it was flowing- LOL, so I went with it and didn't stop until it was done! I'm thrilled how it eventually turned out- and of COURSE Mrs Bunny Wunny has to take some credit for kicking my ass in gear with her REQUEST list and to get drawing - LOL. THANK YOU BUNNY WUNNY! ;-P.

But before I get to that part- if you happened to get to the store today and it was down- ARRGHH, damb hosts- always something else- but it's sorted with a compromise for now- no gallery! so please be patient while Bunny bends the ear of the person on the other end of the phone- but the store is UP and running again!

Don't tell Bunny- but I thought I broke it again- BWAHAHAHAHA, SWEAR- I had just upped my new kit to the store and had gone to get the link when the screen went BLANK with a CPU usage thing message on it- HUH?- can you say PANIC! lol, I've already been warned not to TOUCH THE BUTTONS- now the stores gone! hahahahahaha- THANK GOODNESS it ain't me this time!

So I took some time to walk around my blooming garden ( sounds like I'm swearing doesn't it- LOL) But EVERYTHING is starting to flower and it looks so fresh and bright- I redid our garden so it's still in the *growing stages* but it's looking soooo KEWWWL with all the flowers popping up- and Mrs Miles I took these just for you ( oh and of course me ;-)- so you could see in pictures what they look like-


DAY LILLY's that my dad has come and planted in my garden- that deep red is just DIVINE! the flower only lasts a day- but they are really flowering well now-


A Strelitzia reginae- which are indigenous to South Africa. Common names include  Crane Flower or Bird of Paradise as it grows on a long stem and it looks like a birds head between the thick foliage.


These are Wild irises that are supposed to only flower in Spring- and I LOVE THEM- but they bloom ALL YEAR here and I even have a few flowers in the winter ;-)


A close up shot of it- they bruise easily- but look stunning in groups as they are above!

There you go- some SPRING for you today ;-)

And on to some more goodies- WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, lol

My new kit-



It's a FUN, FUNKY and a little eclectic in style, with all hand drawn elements by ME- yay! lol


These are the doodles characters that are in the kit- and I have put in the sticker version ( slightly lifted) as well as the plain doodles themselves;-)


There are 8 Prints ( and I make them look like wrapping papers- great for printing and wrapping little gifts!) 9 Plains and 6 worn and torn pages.


a Close up on some of the detail that you can't see in the previews


The kit is 35% off at the moment-

Check it out CLOSE UP HERE.

And look at THIS-

This CARD was made using MY NEW KIT ABOVE_ WOOOHOOOOO, how freaking awesome does this look! Louise made it straight after she got the kit and sent me this! I LOVE IT-

Louise( Loucee Creations) even made this AMAZING freebie with my CHRISTMAS GRAB BAG for you ( the bag is gone TOMORROW- so run QUICK if you still want it ;-).


It's a little *scene* Freebie and is in PNG format too- GRAB HIM HERE and don't forget to leave some LOVE-

And Hutchy ( Chris) sent this first thing this morning too- WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW-


How BEAUUUTIFUL did this come out- your clusterwork is AMAZING GF! I LOVE this- and she is such a cutie pie too! Thanks so so much!

And look at this stunner by none other than Jenni Rousseau


These two LO's make me want to SCRAP BAD- lol. LOVE IT- and Jen used Jazzy's CAT wordart!

And of course I can't let you go without something to add to this kit right- LOL, and yup there is a little more to it too- but that will come during the week.- YIPPEEEEe,

I made an Alpha FREEBIE to go with it- and well, when I sent the kit through to all my CT girls, I got a reply back from Nett saying her hubby asked if she was going to make another *ELF-a-BET*- BWAHAHAHAHA, I thought it tooo funny so I named it that- hee hee, Thanks NETT!


Well I started with ONE- then thought that the other colours looked so cool so did 4! hahaha- And I did it in the sticker and plain versions to match the kits doodles too ;-)

You can grab it here- . (doodle and background are not included and can be found in the main kit)- well this has been a GOOD make up post for yesterday- LOL. I need coffee and will chat tomorrow- much love and hugs Kim

Keira said...

Those flowers are gorgeous! Makes me long for nice weather...and we haven't even made it through half of winter yet! The layouts you posted by your CT are amazing...I was stunned! They totally gave me the urge to run to my desktop and scrap, but I promised my daughter we'd bake cookies, haha. Your new kit is way too cute! I love the handrawn elements, you could make some very fun Christmas layouts (and cards) with this kit! The alpha is fun and I love the title.

Jenni said...

Argghh, I want to be where you are. We are stuck in the yuckiest weather ever, it is cold and rainy with muddy snow - brrrrr. I would not mind the snow at all if it really lasted for once and was not only a nuisance for the traffic and house owners who have to clear the pavement around their house.

Your new kit is gorgeous, I LOVE the doodles they are sooo cute. I am still totally broke from DSD, but that kit is so awesome... Thank you so much for the fun alphabets.

irishkathy said...

Thanks so much for the alpha! Oh, if you think a filling is bad, hope you never need a bunch of extractions at the same time - yikes!
I'm also jealous of your flowers. Everything here is drab and waiting for the snow that I don't want to shovel.

Love your pics of the Wild irises ;) Our yard is full of them except we live in Florida... we planted them because they are so drought tolerant and multiply like crazy. We call them "African Irisis" and YES... they do bloom all year round...especially when they get rained on!! Oh, and Thank You for the FSWL goodies ;)
