last one for now

This is a lovely stamp again from stamp Addicts, colored with B0000 and B00 copics, and a sentiment from Stampin up, circle of friendship set. Just like the look of this left plain, sometimes less is more as they say.

On a roll here now

I just adore this stamp from Stamp addicts. So i decided to test different mediums but make the cards on a similar theme. First one is coloured using my beloved copics, extra flowers cut and decoupaged, and a bit of bling for some of the raindrops.

The second is using Tim Holtz distress ink pad, vintage photo, and a friend sent me some more bling in the post and the brown gems were part of them, ideal. More flowers added
Lastly is an easel card, made using my grand caliber, and grand nesties. This one is watercoloured with Marvy Le Plume pens.


I attended a great workshop with my lovely friend Trish held at Once Upon a Stamp. Robert and Gordon certainly make you feel welcome and Claire was a fantastic teacher. We made a pamphlet with 3 signatures and bound it and used yummy Tim Holtz stamps. it still needs tweaking as we just ran out of time but here are some of the pages.

An order for a 90th birthday. Used my Grand Calibur, flowers were hand made from cricut cartridge Mothers day Bouquet, a Clarity corner stamp provided the frame and the 90 was stamped using Just rite stamps

trying to get my mojo back

i had my friend good friend Trish over to stay recently and we had a play on the Cricut expression. She is worse than me, has had it 2 years and never even opened the box!!!! She has now!!! She had the most amazing cartridge called nursery rhymes, so after she'd gone home decided to make a card for my lovely SIL birthday next month. I used the Grand calibur and Grand scalloped square nesties to make the card, and nursery rhymes cartridge for the silhouette
