Have a heart or a butterfly

I think this is the first time I have bought brown papers - I really liked the designs and hope I can make some pretty cards with the papers.These two cards were made with one sheet of striped paper and a tiny amount if the diamond pattern.I think the blue works really well with the brown.

All buttoned up

I never got back to the card making yesterday so this morning I made sure Bella had her breakfast and was in a sunny spot in the lounge.I won the sentiments stamp a few years ago and as it's unmounted I have no idea where it came from- the flowers are from Creative stamping magazine .
I used AquaMarkers and lots of water.

Southern Girls -  retro challenge -buttons or brads,

Tuesday Morning Sketches- I used this weeks sketch 387 for my layout.

I love ProMarkers - challenge 327-   Anything goes - I used AquaMarkers and lots of water.

A helping hand or should that be paw

Bella looking in the box of ink pads - it's important to pick the right colour.

I was hoping to make a couple of cards this morning but Bella had other ideas -  she picked a 'Happy Birthday " stamp.  I'm sure once the sun moves away I can have my desk back.

03 Warm Wishes

This stamp was still sitting on my desk from about 2 weeks ago - ( I'm very bad at keeping things tidy).I used watercolour pencils and added a wink of Stella to the flowers.

Southern Girls challenge - stitching - the corners are real and the border was done with my dress makers tracing wheel.

01 Birthday Bird

I hope you all had a good time with family and friends over the holidays - we don't do the chrissy thing in our house and when I asked my DH what we should have for our main meal on Dec 25th he said "lamb curry " and delicious it was.

I Love ProMarkers -  challenge -  325 Anything goes - I used AquaMarkers and it has to be said there was a lot of water involved to get the colour just right.

More Trees

Well , as predicted yesterday I was stuck for ideas and carried on with the punched trees. I must admit I don't like them all and prefer the softer colours.

Thursday, December 8, 2016


I looked through all my Christmas stamps and then looked through a whole lot more digi images and nothing inspired me - so back to very basic card making with a couple of frames and a punched tree.I love the paper from the top card ,almost vintage. I was busy re-sealing the deck out back yesterday and I was hoping to do a second coat today but it's raining - such a welcome sight - so
I'm off to the craft table - I have a funny feeling there will be more cards just like these - inspiration is in short supply.

Birthday Owl


I think this paper was a magazine freebie and so was the Woodware  owl stamp set. I used AquaMarkers to colour him.As this card was for a man I couldn't decide what embellishments would work so I left it plain and simple.

Happy Birthday

Like many of you I have a few sentiment stamps but usually only use a handful and this 'Happy Birthday' stamp from Stamp-it is one that I use again and again.
