OMG - Uninked Stamp Stash

I have been very industrious lately sorting my stamps and putting the ones I want to keep into clear CD cases and putting the ones I want to sell aside for listing on trade me. Well while I was beavering away I discovered a whole clear doco file (how I stored previously) full of uninked Gorjuss Girls.  Holy Moly what on earth was I up to?????  I have quickly remedied that and stamped off a few on watercolour paper.
Here is the first card I have created using one of these cuties.........

And seeing as how everytime I use a precoloured image I get loads of comments about my fabulous colouring skills (which shows people never read my posts as I always say "I have used a precoloured image) here is my ACTUAL colouring........
 This is coloured using prismacolor pencils and polychromos pencils with mineral spirits for blending on watercolour paper.
The shadow is copic markers N0 & N2
Papers are MME

I am entering my card in the following challenges ( got to love Feline Playful<3 )
Colour Throwdown 
Crafting for all seasons - lots of layers
Ribbon Carousel - Pintrest Inspiration
Divas by design - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky Challenge - Celebration

DTC Ribbons & Buttons + Happy Birthday Angy Pants

This week at Digital Tuesday Challenge we would like to see ribbons and buttons, I have cheated a bit and used twine as this is Angus' 5th Birthday Card.  He doesn't really do ribbons :)

Here is my card......
This is a free digital clipart from Pumpkins & Posies it is actually a Valentines Image but I think it works well for a boys birthday card too.

Angus had his party on the weekend and here are some pics........

Connor, Angus & Gabriella

 A people shot which has the gorgeous Gabriella (who Angus informs he is his future wife) Angus and Connor, Michele, Gabriella's mum is in the background. 

So there you have it a few photos from Angus' special day.  There are loads more but  am only sharing these as Michele gave me permission to show them on the net and I haven't spoken to the other parents :)

I will love you forever if.............

hahaha, bet that got all your attention :)

As you may have seen on facebook my boys are doing the 40 hour famine for the first time.  They are doing a techno famine, so no tv, radio or anything like that for 40 hours.

I would really appreciate any donation to their donation pages.  They get rewarded at school for how much they raise with mufti days, which is a little unfair as some people can not afford to sponsor their kids $80.00 as they have to earn $20 per week to qualify for mufti.  If you could sponsor $5.00 on the donation pages  I will be eternally grateful to anyone that can help. Although if you can't I will love you anyway :)

Here are the links........

Thanks heaps
