To see the whole card, pop over to Time for Tea Designs: Follow your Dreams and you can then check out all the other great DT cards from the fellow DT girls :) such fabulous inspiration using these gorgeous images.


I had great fun making this card, and added some of my handmade roses that I spend ages making :)

Hey Foxy

Soooooooo, who does not love foxes?  Come on hold your hands up lol??  

Well I love them, and this one that Jo has drawn for Time for Tea Designs is just gorgeous.

I had so much fun with this little cutie and decided I wanted to make a little gift bag using it.


Let me take a Selfie!!!

Good morning all

Well its that Monday feeling again, and I had the weekend from busyland!!!

Saturday is our tidy day, with about 10 loads of washing to do, and take out and dry, eep.

Then there is the tidying of the house after two dogs and three kids lol.  

In the evening we were off to Bovington Army base to take photos of a Dining In of the new Lieutenant Colonel for Wessex Yeomanry for the evening, and oh my lord did my back kill after five hours of that.  

So after all that, I completely forgot to set up my post for Time for Tea Designs and my Selfie card that I made for my Step daughter, Bethany, who turned 18 last week :) 

Without further ado :) 


I fell in love with this image, its so perfect for all the girls, young and old in your lives :)   I coloured in using my copics, of course, and went made with my handmade flowers :) 

Hope you like x

Spirals!!!!

Yippee, finished the colouring and just made the card, I really like it, its such a stunning image that I didn't want too much embellishment on the card, what do you think? 

Image by Jeremiah Ketner, papers by Prima "Princess", very apt I think for this beautiful image :) 
I am going to enter this into a couple of challenges, its been soooo long lol

Craft your Passion
Its a new glasses kinda day :) 

Today, I picked up my new glasses, as my eyes have got worse, and it was cheaper to order whole new glasses rather than have my new prescription put into my other frames, go figure on that one!!  - they look really lovely, well I like them lol, and I took my 11 year old with me, who helped me pick them out so they better look nice he he

Maddie went to a sleepover last night, and I go to pick her up at 11am today, for her to come out saying "Mummy don't be too worried about my nose"!!!! What lol - She says "I slept walked into Bea's wall last night"!!!! pmsl - she has a stonking red mark across her nose and its all swollen bless her little heart and obviously sore.

Soooooo onto cardmaking business, I have jumped back into my colouring again with my copics, and as much as they are very expensive, I just love them - can't help it, have tried cheaper versions of alcohol pens but they aren't for me, I just plain ole love copic pens.


This image has been doing the rounds on some of the facebook crafting pages that I frequent and I just love it, and knew it would be perfect to start practicing my colour skills on again :) with a lot more depth that I want to achieve, and it is.  This is what I have created with her so far, and I love it.  The image is purchased from Jeremiah Ketner Fine Arts etsy page.  

Off to watch a movie me thinks, might be back later with another card I have made

Happy Saturday afternoon everyone :) x

Altenew - to me 
 
I have found another new Stamp company that I hadn't heard of until last week, and its called Altenew, they have the most beautiful and gorgeous clear stamps - absolutely stunning. 

I jumped into the pool and bought Painted Flowers (from Make the Day Special in the UK, fabulous and quick service), so so pretty.  Its a four layered flower set, and creates a painted look, which seems to be a very popular look in cardmaking at the moment.

I had a look around their gallery and Pinterest for some inspiration, and came up with the cards below - which I am super happy with :) 



Made with Stampin Up inks and Altenew Painted Flowers/Clearly Besotted Sentiment

Such simple cards really, but a lot of attention were put into these as is required when doing four step stamping!! ;)

I used some watercolour paper for the bottom card, and watered the image when I had it on my acylic block and then stamped and it gave a slightly softer look I think.  I then spritzed the turquoise ink over the whole image and I really love how it looks and how it turned out :) 

Happy Thursday guys :)

Wednesday already!!!

OMG where has this week gone already, okay, I wasn't at work yesterday as my youngest, was poorly the night before so I had to stay home with her yesterday, bless her little cottons :), she is all better today though and back to school.

I have a couple more cards to share with you, made using some Clearly Besotted Stamps (of course) lol.

Made with Clearly Besotted Dandelion Dreams and the thanks die

Made with Clearly Besotted Dandelion Dreams
The cards were both made using Stampin Up inks, I have since got myself some Memento inkpads as well, to add to my colours, plus they are cheaper than Stampin Up inks and when on a budget, needs must :) 
How pretty are these!!! I got these on Ebay five for the price of four, so a pretty good bargain :)

I also managed to pick up from one of the selling groups on Facebook, this fabulous Fiskars Stamp Press, I have been after one of these for well over a year now, so am in a little bit of heaven at the moment, that I managed to pick one up for just £10 with postage!! :) 

This thing is absolutely huge!!!! I cannot believe the size of it lol.  

I treated myself to my first Zig Wink of Stella glitter pen in clear, so really looking forward to playing with this tonight :) 

Hope you all have a great evening x
