Easter Bunny

Hi again here's the second Easter card.
I have used an old LOTV stamp can't remember it's name
I found it while rummaging in my stamps draw, I came across
Lots of stamps I'd forgotten about. Ooh! It was like, you know when 
Mr or Mrs Postie drops a crafty parcel through your door, excitement,
Something new. Well I had that feeling again.

I have used Distress Markers to colour him in,
I also treated myself to a pot of stampendous Frantage
In shabby white. I have noticed it on a lot of your cards
and I love the look you get from it,
 it's fabulous.

I've had a go at making some more flowers
Following this tutorial from Chelsea over at
Crafting life's pieces.
Who knew you could have so much fun with 
Coffee filter paper!
Oh wow look at that sparkle you get from the
Frantage when the sun hits it, ooh I love it.

I have used a go kreates die to make a shaped card.
The papers are some digi ones I found I think they are from 
Bearly mine designs.
I have used the joy craft butterflies again (love these as well).
Frantaged them to, although I might have to invest in a 
Heat tool that's more gentle, mine blasted a lot of embossing
powder off.
Roses are from WOC.
Marianne creatables swirl dies.
Lace from stash.

I loved using this shape card makes a change from
the regular square. I put it together on top of the 
envelope so i knew it would still fit in.

Thanks for stopping by today
and i hope you all have a

Hi all here's the first of two Easter cards I've made,
I managed to take a photo before the sun went down.
They are not the best 
I've noticed a few shadows from the tree in the garden.
Never mind.

This image is called Daphne.
I just love the digi images from Wee Stamps
they are all so cute, so i couldn't resist when 
i saw her, just in time for Easter cards.

I have coloured her with Polychromos pencils
and blended with sansodor.
I have added glamor dust to her wings, well she is
a fairy, isn't it the law.

The papers are from a Forever Friends 
spring paper pad.
I have also used an X Cut doily die and a
Joy craft butterfly on the edge die.
Flowers are from WOC.

Crochet cushion

Hi all you'll never guess what, yes yes 
I'm making another cushion, I can't help myself.

I know I've got blankets to finish, there's a little voice in my 
ear telling me so but when I saw this lovely cushion on the
Lavender and Wild rose blog I instantly new it was perfect for some cushions 
I've been wanting to make to go on our bed.

I love the one colour theme it gives it a classy, understated look,
perfect for a bedroom.

I have gone for a pale pink I chose drops Lima DK it's  a mixture of
wool and Alpaca. Everyone seems to rate drops so I wanted to give it a
whirl and I'm impressed. It's great to crochet with comes in lots of great 
colours and the price is quiet reasonable.
 I got mine from the wool warehouse
using a discount code from a crochet magazine
 so I got 10% off as well

Talking of crochet mags
 I've just picked up this months simply crochet.
What could be better a milky coffee,
 feet up and a browse through my favourite mag.

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Mums out there

Beth made me a fabulous cushion for my chair

I decided I wasn't happy with the first Mother's Day 
cards I made so I made two more.

I'm a lot happier with these and
both Mums loved them.
I've also added some of flowers i made,
i need to make some more of these i've none left.

The stamps are both from Elusive images
 I have coloured them with Distress markers.
The papers are from the Rose Garden paper pad 
from First Edition.
Sentiments I made on the computer,

Thanks for stopping by and
enjoy the rest of your day

Mothers Day card part 2

Hi there I've been having another play, it started 
when I was having a root around my stamping draw.
I found this stamp that hadn't ever been inked.

 tut! tut!

The stamp is called Tiffany
by Krista Smith

I got out my Copics and tried the flicking technique and I love the
results I got with the hair.

Then trawling round blog land came across a blog called 
Crafting life's pieces and saw a fab tutorial on making
Your own flowers so I had to have a go. 

Here are a few I made they are made from watercolour paper 
except the large pink one which I made out of layout paper.
The rest I put on my card.

You should pop by and check out the tutorial they are so easy
to make.

So here's my card

It turned into another Mother's Day card,
Basically because I already had the sentiment made,
It was lying on my desk and matched perfectly so why not.

I really enjoyed making this card it's got a bit of shabby chic going on
and I'll definitely be making more flowers.

Birthday Girl

 Hi there hope you are well, just popped on to show you the 
 card i made for my MIL.
It was her birthday yesterday.

I got my polychromos pencils out for this one
i had forgot how much i love to
colour with these or should i say
colouring in general.
I can see a big pile of coloured images 
growing on my desk in the future waiting to be made into cards.
I'll probably end up with more images than cards made.

hay ho.

thanks for dropping by
