It’s our wedding anniversary this month and we have managed 18 years! Can’t believe it has been that long. Here is the card I have made for hubby, using Lili of the valley stamps!

Another day, a different Lili of the valley stamp! I love these little fairies and I have coloured them with distress markers. I really dug out some old stash for this card! The flowers date back to my very early days of crafting. I have loads of them and I am challenging myself to dig deep in to the narnia of craft supplies !

Morning all. What a lovely sunny morning it is too. I finished this little lovely off last night. She has been coloured with distress markers. The papers are old dovecraft ones. I’m enjoying going through my mahoosive stack of Lili of the valley rubber stamps as I’m sorry to see they are going to stop them and you will only be able to get the digi versions. I love my digis too, but there’s just something about rubber stamps for me that feels like they are properly handmade.

It’s my mum’s birthday soon and I am trying to get ahead with cards I will need. I have dug out some old Lili of the valley stamps and I love them 😍 . I also decided to play with my distress markers. I need plenty more practice, but I like how this all came together and I’m not gonna lie, this took me a while to make.

I know, I don’t post here very much, but I like to keep a record of what I make/or rather like, so here is as good a place as any! I picked up these mermaid downloads from polkadoodles and I have to say that I love them. These images are precoloured, so great, when you need a card in a hurry and don’t have much time to spare.
I think it’s worth entering them in to the polkadoodles challenge, where the theme is anything goes.

Di’s digi challenge where the theme is snow much fun.
Every now and again I buy craft stash .... ok quite often! Sometimes something just gives you a wow moment and I bought the smallest set of Caran D’Ache pencils after watching a Jennifer McGuire video on YouTube. She has a lot to answer for! 😂 Anyway, she’s not wrong about these pencils being the “copics of the pencil world “ . They beat prismacolour pencils on every level being wax pencils and they don’t break like the prismas do, also their vibrancy and lack of wax bloom just put them on another level. I know I will have to buy a larger set at some point so had better start saving my pennies! Here’s a wee card I have made using the stamps that I also love by MFT.

It takes ages to colour with pencils and this one is no exception. It took a good few hours to get all of these layers down on the image....

No card to post today, but I have been having a colouring frenzy! My dear friend, Diane, sent me some copics to try. I have always been a pr...
