Wee Florist

Another Wee image, this one is Wee Florist and she`s one of my faves, actually I can`t really pick a favourite coz I love `em all!

I`ve coloured her with Distress Inks and Markers and I have to say I really struggled with colouring the hair on this one. I`m not entirely happy with the result but I don`t think we are ever entirely happy with our own work are we? Anyway...

I`ve used NitWit Papers from LOTV, these ones are from the Country Lady Collection, Grand Nestabilities Stately Circles for the card shape, Cheery Lynn die - Fanciful Flourish, Martha Stewart POP set - Eyelet lace and Hobby House flat back pearls.

I made these gorgeous roses from the Spellbinders Vintage Floret dies from Heartfelt Creations available from Sir Stampalot. I had a huge amount of fun making these, in fact I couldn`t stop making them and now I have a whole tub of them in all different sizes and colours to use on future projects! The leaves are a Heartfelt Creations stamp set too which I cut out by hand.

I`d like to enter this into A Creative Romance challenge, this time around it is "Girly Creations" ( I think this one qualifies! LOL!)

It`s a horrible rainy day here at the moment, in fact it hasn`t stopped raining since early this morning, typical bank holiday weekend methinks! So I`m going to have a play with my latest purchase of a Ranger Melt Pot, got some lovely frame moulds and I also got some Pour and Mould to have a go and create my own embellishments too.

Thanks for looking in, bye for now xxx

For You

Here is a card I made recently for my friend Louise`s Birthday.

The image is "For you Tilda" available from Sir Stampalot. I`ve coloured her with Distress Inks and Markers and added some liquid pearls here and there in the flower bunch. The little stamp around the image is from the Stampin` Up set "Tiny Tags". I`ve also used Wild Orchid Flowers, Papers from Magnolia and Melissa Frances, Hobby House flat back pearls, SU sentiment and Joy Crafts Butterfly Border and Oval dies.

I`d like to enter this into the Tilda`s Town Challenge which is "Favourite Colouring Medium" and I`ve used Tim Holtz Distress Inks of course! I would also like to enter this into the Papertake Weekly Challenge which is "Anything Goes"
Thanks for looking in, bye for now xxx

Sent with Love

I made this card for no other reason than to use one of the Wee Stamps my friend Kay sent me. He`s a cutie and I loved colouring him in.

I`ve coloured him using Distress Inks and Markers and added a bit of Glossy Accents to highlight his little pink nose.

The papers are Prima and Magnolia from Sir Stampalot, Wild Orchid flowers, Ribbon Girl crochet lace, Hobby House charm and flat back pearls, SU sentiment, Cheery Lynn - Fanciful Flourish die and a little wooden heart from my stash. I`ve no idea who will receive this one but I`m sure he`ll find a home in due course!
I`m ahead with all my Birthday Cards for the year but it`s such lovely weather at the moment with plenty of natural light that I`m taking advantage and getting as many images coloured before the weather changes (as it does very quickly here!) Which is what I`m going to get on with now, thanks for looking in, bye for now xxx
