Friends are Flowers

Hello to my crafty friends and new followers, Crystal O Minkler and Cindy Holmes

Today's card uses a piece from my experiments box, distress inks on watercolour paper, for the background.
I stamped the Crafty Individual's CI-385 with Emerald Lagoon DI and embossed with Dyeboss EP
I stamped the sentiment (an old one from Printworks) in the same colour and cut it up so that I could attach to the side without covering the flowers. 
I added a little  of the same colour to the dragonfly and also some sparkle with a Sakura Gellyroll pen
Layered onto a pretty turquoise base card

Christmas in July

Welcome everyone

Today's card is my first Christmas card of the year, and also the first time making a slimline card
I cut the star banner from a silver card,with my Silhouette Cameo and attached it to the red base.
The message was stamped with versamark and embossed with white detail ep.
I filled the centre of the stars with KindyGlitz Crystalina

'B' is for bees!

Allsorts Challenge

This week is for 'something starting with 'B' so I am entering this card made with green hills, a lovely beehive dripping with honey, sponged blue sky, and some bees buzzing around.
Layered onto a honeycomb embossed honey coloured card, and the sentiment stamped onto one of the clouds

Hello and welcome

Today's card features a fabulous cat and sentiment from the 'Puddy Cat' set by Dylusions.
I stamped it onto the card and then stamped the cat again on a scrap of Neenah solar white card
I have used the following Promarkers for colouring
Cardinal Red
Summer Sun

I also sponged the edge of the base card with Mustard Seed distress ink

Hi and welcome

My second use of this delightful cowboy from Art Impressions. No action wobble this time, as the ones I have are too big, however his legs still move around!
I used some dp to cut a hill for him to stand on, and coloured with copics and promarkers

So Cute!


Today's card is a commission for a family with a new baby. The mother has had Chihuahuas for some time and they were previously her 'babies', so the card had to include them all
I found some suitable images and assembled in a pram cut from some spotty blue paper from my scrap box, and also found some spotty buttons in my stash for the wheels.
Apparently they loved it
