Waiting for tea to brew


So I just thought I'd just pop him on here. He is one of 2 identical cards I've made for a friend at work. I've used Mo's Baby Boy from here.
I used SU Spots to paint the image with a few watercolour pencils also. The stamp is an old Kim Hughes one (she has a new store here).
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday xx

Chicken Soup Recipe #34 - Dreamy and Romantic


Please (I'm almost begging you here) go and look at this week's inspiration. The image is just gorgeous and I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame. So easy for an image like this to fuel my creativity, and this is what I made with it :) Chicken Soup are also looking for a Guest DT, so get over there and join in ;)
Have a lovely weekend xXx

Paperplay - Let's distress...


Rip, tear, ink, smudge.... Oh ok then ;) Love getting inky so I loved this take on the Paperplay Challenges. Come and join us, see the original post HERE

I used scraps of paper, an old book page, Prima pearls and a digi stamp from here.

Feeling blue? Then let's twist.....


Loved doing this sketch.... I say that every time don't I? Thing is I'm a bit of a sketch junkie and Anam's are the best.
The twist for us this week was to add button(s) and I had some exactly the right colour in my stash (cos it would be wrong to buy more, right?) The papers are Fancy Pants (old ones) and Crate Paper: Restoration (not so old), a Nestie with a Papermania stamp and a trim courtesy or Bazzill Half the Edge. Have a look at the Twsited blog and see the beautiful cards the other ladies have made.....

Paper Smooches Birdie...


So Paper Smooches are looking for some GDT members, so I thought I'd play along :)
I've used one of Kim's digital stamps, some My Mind's Eye paper and some old Making Memories letter stickers.
I think that the paper I stamped onto might be Girl's paperie but it was only a small, left over piece (I can't seem to throw much away I'm afraid).
I coloured in the Little Birdie with my new, Derwent watercolour pencils.

Shades of Green and lots of luck


Simple but to the point this one. It's for the new challenge up on PaperPlay this week. But don't just look at what I've done, have a look at the rest of the cards made by talented team and make one yourself... :) This week's prize will be a stamp from Whiff of Joy.

My Mind's Eye card challenge

I made this using papers from the Lost & Found (not the glittery side - shock!!!) and So Sophie collections. The buttons were also from So Sophie die-cuts. Add a digi sentiment stamp & a tiny bit of ribbon (and a tonne of ink) and i was done :)
I'm entering this for the latest My Mind's Eye sketch challenge.
I'm posting this from a train, on a tablet PC, are you impressed? What do you mean 'no'??????? ;)

Springy Twist


I love doing things that I don't usually do (does that make sense?) This card isn't really me at all, but I completely enjoyed making it.
I used old paper (a Basic Grey 6 x 6 - Phoebe I think) for the background, the seemingly die-cut border is from a Prima 6 x 6 (Jack and Jill). The Spring Stamp is from Whimsey Stamps and the butterflies are from Hobbycraft. Inking, cutting, painting; it's all good :) In case you didn't know tho, the twist was Spring ;) The rest of the team created some beautiful work which you can find here :)
