Shall we dance?

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!

Forever friends.

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 !

Fairy on tip toe.

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.

Lili of the valley - Never too old for a hug.

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.

Polkadoodles crazy.

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.

Another polkadoodles


Here is another Polkadoodles entry for the Polkadoodles challenge. She has been coloured with promarkers.

Happbee birthday

Got to love a bit of polkadoodles! I decided to give my promarkers an airing and came up with this card.I really enjoyed colouring in this little lady. Think I might enter it in to the Polkadoodles challenge challenge as well.

Pencil practice

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. I used prismacolour pencils as I don’t yet have enough Caran D’Ache to get the effect I wanted for this little lady. She is a Candibean stamp that I have had in my stash for ages and I just fancied colouring her up to add to my 2019 Christmas cards collection. Her little dogs are so cute and I had one of these as a child. I am going to enter this card in to Di’s digi challenge where the theme is snow much fun.

New pencils

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.
