You make me smile

Afternoon Peeps

Well sun is shining now after the worst morning, cold windy wet, but now we have blue skies but still very windy

I do love to play colouring on a week day.........  it is so calming. although should really be doing housework.......... (mmmm just one more and i promise I will do some)

Anyway I have another House Mouse for you I know now why I got all these stamps love love love.........

The papers are from a 6x6 pad CONFETTI by Kaiserkrafts.... the buttons I have had in my stash for ever.

Inside of the card I just used some of the same papers and I cut out another label die.
As always Thanks so much for looking and commenting means a lot to me.

Just Chill

Evening Peeps

Well I have been getting all my stamps out and having a good practice, today it was a House Mouse day, I love these stamps so started with this one, which is a favorite

I started with a 6x6 card base and used a paper pack I got from Michaels when I went to stay with my friend in Florida, I actually bought so much whilst there I had to get another bag to bring it all home, I so wish I could shop there every week.

Anyway here we go

The papers I used are called STONEWASHED by the Paper Studio, I stamped the sentiment with versamark ink and heat embossed with White embossing powder.  I covered the drink with wink of Stella glitter pen.

I cut out the stamp with a Spellbinders label - fussy cutting the flower first and putting that outside the die as the image was a little to big for the die, but I didn't want to use the next size up.

I stamped the embellishment and added inside the card along with some more of the paper and a label die from Spellbinders.

As always thanks for looking and commenting it is really appreciated.

Hello Friend

Afternoon Peeps

From a very Wet, Windy and cold Wales, looks like winter is back with a vengeance......
I have been practicing with my copics again on another Saturated Canary digi stamp.  the image is quite apt at this moment although not the short sleeves.........

I have created a 6x6 card, covered with papers from Serendipity Paper Pad by Papiers Creation, which I purchased at the Works.

I used the following colours
HAIR - E31,35 & 57
DRESS - BV31,02,13 & 17
I used a white gel pen for the details.

Time now to dig out all my stamps and have a good play

As always thanks for looking and have a great week

Afternoon Peeps

Well after waiting in for British Gas all day and nothing I decided I would do a little bit of crafting.  I coloured this image quite a while ago with Promarkers and had forgotten that I had done it.  I used Parisian Dreams Paper collection 6x6 by Jenny Ellory.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Stamps.................

As always thanks for looking

Especially for You

Evening Peeps

A little card from me using a new stamp set I purchased, I just love flowers especially Fushia or Dancing dollies as we used to call them. I thought I would try some water colouring, first I created with background with some water colour pencils, then stamped the flowers, coloured and fussy cut them out, I added them with some pop dots.

I doodled the stamen and added some Gorguss purple twine.

As always thanks for looking

Come Away with ME...............................

Evening peeps

Well it has taken me 3 days to get my computer to work again.  I kept having to turn it off before throwing it out of the window............  Me & technology........mmmmm

Anyway i have created this photo folio using the a tutorial from the very talented #Superhappyscrapper (Chandra), i love her work and was looking to make an album for a very dear friends 80th birthday, a lady who loves to travel and loves to take photo's so hopefully this will make her day.

The papers are all from Graphic45 Come Away with Me, I used the 12x12 and the 6x6 coordinating papers.
I fussy cut the cover twice so I could put the second layer on dimentionals

the first fold out has a waterfall section in the centre and to rows of pockets and tags

then it all folds out again with more pockets

The photos probably doesn't do the album any favours but if you would like to try this please go to #superhappyscrapper You Tube channel, she has lots of tutorials.

As always thanks for looking.

Just For You

Happy Sunday Morning

I received my lovely magazine this week from Cardmaking & Papercrafts with a free stamp set.  This set was from spell binders and I have had the die cuts for the longest time so I thought I would actually use them, I coloured the bird stamp with Copic Markers and used a new paper pad I got from the Works called Serenity which has the loveliest papers some with glitter and  some double sided.  I love the muted tones in the paper and it looks fab with kraft card.

I used some ric-rac ribbons again I have had this for the longest time, I was going to put it under my image but it was totally lost there so decided to put it on top, I wasn't sure at first but I think it all came together quite well. I stamped the sentiment and then heat embossed it with white and added a few pearls.

As always thanks for looking.
