Danny's Birthday

Hi there, I have a clean and simple card today, it was my nephews birthday and I always struggle  with a subject for them, I decided on Mr Roboto from Tiddly Inks this is a great image.

I fancied doing a fairly clean card so i chose to use just grey and blue as my colour scheme.
These button dies from Crafters companion diesire button box die seemed perfect, the paper is from My Memory and a rub on sentiment to finish.

Something a little different

Hi there, something a bit different today, I had a wonderful photo of my Granddaughter Amelie blowing a dandelion clock and wanted to make a feature of it. Whilst I was walking round our local poundland I found this unusual frame, so snatched it up and had a play.

I have used Isabella First Edition papers, the poem I found on the internet, an old locket, the wooden A I coloured with copics and then glitter, the laser cut seed head was coloured and just the ends laquered and then glittered, the frame it self I stamped the fern and dragonflies using Stazon.

Valentine already

Hi there, I'm being mega productive at the moment and managed to get a few Valentine cards ready for the shop, so when I find time I will pop them on here. Although I still have 8 Christmas cards I never managed to blog, I will save them for later this year, if the time goes as fast as it did last year it will feel like next month.
I printed this gorgeous image, Valerie-in-love from Mo's Digital pencil, a bit on the large size, so I've left this card fairly plain.

Winter Lullaby from Aurora Wings

Hiya, isn't it great to get back into a routine, or is it just me? I like to know what I'm doing and when, so it was lovely to get this gorgeous image from Mitzi at Aurora Wings. I loved colouring Winter Lullaby it's a bit looser than a lot of Mitzi's images. I you want to see what the rest of my teamies did with it pop across HERE . It still amazes me how different all the finished projects are from the same image.

I coloured her with copics, used DCWV papers, orange bazill cardstock, corner punch, Marrianne swirl die, Sue Wilson Cammelia flowers and outlines, orange gems and some ribbon from my stash.
I coloured the backgound with E77 then layed a diamond stencil over the top and coloured the diamonds with the copic blender. I was itching to use my new stencil so this seemed the perfect project.

Something New

Hi there, well I seem to be getting back into some sort of a routine, that Christmas flu bug certainly took some getting rid off, I must admit it has left me with a tickly cough, so annoying at 3am.
I also started back at the slimming club, wasn't quite as bad as I thought it would be so had to go shopping and get my fruit and veg in, yummy , not.
A friends son and his partner have just had a baby boy, very unexpected only 29 weeks pregnant, so fingers crossed things continue to improve, he only weighed 3lb at birth then lost a bit, but I believe he has regained his weight now.

I got this tiny bow die for Christmas so thought I would try it out, it's a Sue Wilson die and I must say I love it, much prefer it to the larger one.
I used blue bazill cardstock, DCWV paper, mo's digital pencil image called Happy that I coloured with copics, spellbinders scallop circle, clear gems and a congratulations stamp.
