Friday Feeling

Winding down for the weekend .... l wish, we have a grandaughter due any day now so all jobs upto date and on standby. I am a bit behind with my crafting but these things happen. Just caught up on do crafts snoflake challenge, l bought these gorgeous forever friends bear stamps from the sale at glitterpot (half price) and will be using these for our grandchildrens cards. I coloured the images with distress inks and twinkling h2O's and added the essential glamour dust, l don't feel my cards are complete without it. Hope you all enjoy the long weekend, happy crafting x Susan x

Tilda Challenge

I have made this card for the Tilda Challenge over on do crafts. The challenge was purple & green, spots and a ribbon. The paper is Magnolia Blueberries but they look purple and match Tilda's dress perfectly. Not much green leaves on blueberries and punched leaves, wires and ribbon on the spoon. This is the second time of using my copics in one week, they have previously been sat on the shelf for over 6 months collecting dust. Still need lots of practice with these.

Thank you for looking and enjoy the day whatever you are doing. x Susan x

Oh What A Beautiful Day

The sun is shining, the dust is sparkling and the inspiration is flowing. For today l have used my Kay Karley stamps that l bought a month or so ago. I made the backgrounds using distress inks and stamping the swirls from the same set. The flowers are coloured with copics, l think l need to use these more otherwise they will be a bad spend - maybe l need some more colours to see how they work together. Stickles around main image and glamour dust on small flowers. The sentiment was from a free set on a Creativity mag.

Thanks for stopping by x Susan x

Happy Tuesday

The sun is shining, this is day 2 of blogging and l have an amazing 21 followers, thank you for joining me and l hope you enjoy dropping in from time to time. I have joined most of your blogs too and will work out the ones l have not got around to yet and will be joining you soon!!

Today l am sharing a very quick card. I have used bazzill swiss dot for the backing and doodlebug dots. The bear image is a Milton stamp and is adorable and no colouring required on this one. The flowers are punches - MS and small x-cut. Sentiment is WOJ. Thank you for looking and happy crafting x Susan x

I am finding this difficult and think it may take some time to set up properly.
