Sitting up high

Here's my last entry for the challenge over at Dis' digi designs. This little one is in the sale. I just love the cute little bear!

Get your shades on!

This one is really bright! You'll need your shades. This image is a Di's digi download, so it's only right that I enter this one in to their challenge blog!

Narwhal love

This is a beautiful saturated canary image called narwhal love. I love these images and I had great fun colouring in this one with promarkers. The sentiment is a pink petticoat one and I have only just realised that pink petticoat has closed! The papers are prima ones that my friend Diane gave me and the flowers are from my stash that I bought from Wild Orchid crafts yonks ago. Naturally my trusty old sewing machine made an appearance! I'm entering this one in to the following challenges.

Two more lots of layers and cuteness.

Here's two more cards for the challenge over at Di's digi downloads. The hedgie card is for my dearest cousin who is very poorly and about to undergo some horrible treatment. She's been through it already and is about to undergo some more so I just want her to know that she's very special. xx

Scarecrow antics

When I saw this little scarecrow over at Di's digis I knew it was perfect for a certain someone! I love Di's busy little mice and I'm so addicted to them. I have teamed it up with some bright papers...old ones might I add and a selection of dies and I dug out the sewing machine and managed to slice through my thumb with my paper trimmer, but the pain was worth it as I love how this came together. I dug out my old promarkers too. It amazes me that they still work after being left for so long! I'm going to enter this one in to the new challenge over at Di's digis which is lots of layers and boy don't I just love my layers! I alos need to shout out to Lili of the Valley for their excellent customer service. I bought these sentiment stamp sets back in 2012 and was horrified to find that these had begun to crumble and split. I posed the question on their facebook page and received a new set of stamps and an explanation for why this had happened. Apparently not enough water was used when the stamp set I bought was manufactured and this caused the stamps over time to do this. Well done Lili of the valley for excellent customer service and no quibbles.  Hope my scarecrow doesn't scare you all away!

Easter card Saturated Canary

Here's a pretty saturated canary pretty all ready for Easter. I coloured my image with copics and distressed inked the edges with a little frantage around the edges too. Hope you like her.

Wendy's wishes and Daisy kisses.

I have managed to stamp a candibean image by the very talented Di of Di's digi download designs. I love her cute images and was very proud to be part of the design team. But now I can play with her fab images or stamp as in this case without the pressures that being on a design team can give. It also means that I can join in with the challenges! Win win! This little cutie has been coloured with copics and I have used a few delicious dies and some vintage photo distress ink and the papers are stampin up ones. I'm going to enter this one in to Di's digi downloads challenge.

Pink and black.

Here's one I made earlier. Totally untraditional colour combination for Easter, but I do love the combination! This is a new Saturated Canary digital image. I have coloured her with copics and the papers are old Echo park ones. Shock horror but I have almost finished the pad of papers! So I'm rocking the stash reduction self challenge! The die is a Noor design one.

A Gentle break and return

I've been missing from my blog in absolutely ages! I have had a bit of a time of it and lost my crafting mojo, big time! Unfortunately I'm having to have a slow return as my hands are giving me a lot of pain and so anything I make takes me ages because the discomfort and the fact that I keep dropping things doesn't make me smile! Unfortunately I had to stand down from my design team position from Di's digi downloads too which made me really sad as I loved working with Di's digi stamps but I knew I couldn't keep up with it as I have good days and bad and that wasn't fair of me to keep letting people down. So, please don't be too harsh as my colouring is not very good on this one, but it's the first card I have made in months and it's for my Mum for Mother's Day. I had a rummage through my stash and found some pretty organza ribbon, some old echo park papers, a magnolia vintage tag die with some snippets used to make the tag.....Kathy would be pleased.....and I have dug out some frantage, and white embossing powder, which |I used on the magnolia stamped butterfly , coloured with vintage photo distress ink and I hand sewed around the took me ages but I like the effect and it saved me trying to haul my sewing beast on to my table! The image is a Saturated Canary image called May.
