Getting Old?

This card was made for a special order.  It's another favourite image of mine from the 'Old Bags' set by Polkadoodles.
It was coloured with Copics and the paper is from my never ending stash.
The sentiment is included in the stamp set.

Thanks for looking xx

I find it hard to make 'boy' cards but quite happy how this one turned out..
The image is from Just Inklined and coloured with Copics. The gears were cut using my Silhouette and the sentiment is from Scrapmatts.  Papers from my stash.

Spring Flowers

Some bright spring flowers for today, even though it's nearly autumn here!  The image is from Just Inklined and is coloured using techniques learnt in Kit and Clowder classes. I have colored it using Copics and used a corner punch around the outside and put a bit of yellow cardstock behind the cut out. The reason for this is that I printed the image a little larger than usual and thought it was too big too mat properly.

The sentiment is a die cut and paper from my stash.
I am entering the Corrosive Challenge "Anything Goes"

One for my sister!

It's my sisters birthday soon and I made this card for her.  I just love these images from Polkadoodles, so cheeky.  The image is coloured with Copics, the saying is one of several that comes with the set of images and the sentiment is computer generated.  Papers are from my stash.
I am entering the Shopping Our Stash challenge which is called "winter blues" where the idea is to use lots of blue but no winter images.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Trying something a little different!

I have been practicing with my Silhouette machine, particularly the tracing so that I can cut digital stamps.
The image is from Make It Crafty and coloured with copics.  The background paper is from Mischief Circus, the bee collection.  I thought it was perfect for the image.  Sentiment is computer generated.
Had lots of fun making this card!!  Photography doesn't do it justice.

Trying to find more time for blogging.

Well I'm back again.  I really must keep this blog going but time seems to run away with me.
This is an ATC that I have made for the Vera Lane ATC swap "All you need is love" found here Vera Lane.

Really love her fun digi stamps.  This one is coloured with copics, the background is blended using Distress Inks.
