Emu vs the Ewe

So here's a clean and simple card I've made just colouring the whole thing up using pencil crayons and chalks for the swirling bg.
There us a little back story to this card. 
I posted this new Digi an Emu in my facebook group its a new image for our progressive challenge and somehow typed in Elmo the Ewe. DIDN'T NOTICE THE MISTAKE !!!  Someone kindly asked isn't it a Emu not an Ewe. OMG too funny I didn't realize that I had made the mistake way to funny so that's how this card was made up and soon an Ewe will be in the shop with Elmo in a new pose or two.

WOYWW

Hi all Happy  WOYWW  I know I've been a little MIA lately but last week I was going to join in but my little furbaby Squeak passed away. We had him for 17 years and for the  week before it happened you just knew that his time was getting close, at least it happened at home so he didn't have to freak out in the car which he TOTALLY hates to be in and we had everything he liked around him and kept him on one floor so he didn't have to climb any stairs for his weary bones. We are both doing fine just find the house quiet now without a cat to trip us up (ALOT). 

So on to my space this week it's me working on a Pocket Letter I got stuck on started out okay then just can't figure out the rest it will get done eventually I'm guessing just have to figure out the top of it I start things with no clear plan I just let it evolve and see where it takes me and hope it doesn't end up in the bin. 
The Binder closest to you is my Sticker and die cuts to use for Pocket Letters just easy to flip and grab when I need something.

So I'm holding my 1st progressive challenge on Facebook for Limited Runs if you want to grab this little cutie and play along It would be fantastic. 
He'll be in the Limited Runs store for a 24hour for free (Ehmail me till the 1st if you missed out to play along)
then you can buy into the challenge for only $1.00
this progressive challenge will last for 3 months with winner or winners if we get a lot people playing along.
If you don't have facebook then you can email a link and picture to your site and I'll be happy to add you into the contest

WOYWW

Happy 400th post  wow has it been that long !!!

Well I've been skipping off a wee bit seeing my desk hasn't had much to show this week my desk does has a few new things on it. I've have Happy Mail instead I was lucky to have won from Kelly and I owned none of this so it's a true treat to have the magazines are going to be fun to look through seeing we can't get them really over here to much $$ just to buy one 
So I haven't looked through them yet but I shall shortly seeing I've removed the plastic and love all they papers they came with so much fun 

I'm going to go off and play with some of this and see how it all works and put it away where I need it go so I can find it all easy :)

Happy WOYWW hugs Nikki
