Hiya, I'm back again with the other card I managed to make using one of the images from my coloured in pile (with Copics) which is constantly growing, as colouring is about all I ever feel like doing these days.

This one is a Magnolia cutie from the fairytale range (sentiment from Whiff of Joy) and I've just teamed her with bit of design paper that was laying on my desk and had the right colours to match.  Sponged the background around her with distress ink to soften the stark white.
Used the fab Cheery Lynn heart doily die behind the image which was cut out and matted with nesties labels die and an MFT leaf flourish die (my obsession with their dies is still going strong as they keep coming out with so many fab ones!).  Added some flowers and  lilac baubles to finish.  Decorated the inside to match.

And that's all the cards I have to show at the moment.  Have my crochet project left to show you and I'm currently trying to finish knitting a scarf I started last xmas for hubby - hopefully in time for this xmas LOL.

I'm currently trying to resist all the fab new goodies slowly trickling in for christmas.  Failed with the LOTV xmas stamps LOL (although I was good and only got 5), but just seen all the MME paper pads and more fab Dienamics dies . . not to mention some cute Sassy stamps . ., Hero Arts, . . . and the list just keeps on growing - help :o  Off to go put some more goodies in my virtual basket and see if I can resist the 'pay' button LOL

cards for the boys

Hello there.  Sorry again for the month long absence but time just kinda zooms by too quick these days - must be getting old.  Talking of which, July was both mine and DH's birthday and this is the card I made him :D

The fab image is a Kenny K rubber stamp by Whimsy.  Coloured in with Copics and I've given her sparkly lips with Sakura glitter pen but it's not showing in the photos.  Speech bubble is a fab die & stamp set by MFT and I've just typed and printed the sentiment out.  I've cut the image out using nesties heart die and stamped  around her with a Magnolia 'love' print stamp using pink distress ink.  Flower made by using Sizzix tattered floral die on some faux leather & mesh fabrics and adding a big gem brad for the centre.

Another boy card I made since my last post was for my nephew.  So this one's more wholesome :).  It was a bit of a last minute job and being a teenager now I had no clue what to buy him so it was good old cash, hence I incorporated a pocket into the card to hold it;
Image on this one is one of the stamps from the Creeper Crew kit (The Greeting Farm) which again, I've coloured with Copics and added some shimmer to his hair and belt buckle with Sakura glitter pen.  The card and pocket was just a cream textured cardstock which I've sponged with distress ink to make it look like denim and I've just randomly stamped some birthday text and icons all over it.  Used the speech bubble die again and added some twil ribbon and brads to finish.

I've got another card and a little crochet project I also finished in July but will schedule those for later.  Till then,
