On to the card, I followed the sketch at flutterbywednesdays, the image I used is Fairy Fae from Delicious Doodles,( I was lucky enough to win it recently from One stitch at a time, but haven't had time to use it until now!) Coloured with copics and I used twinkling H2Os on her wings and on the butterflies, it doesn't show in the photo but they have a lovely subtle shimmer IRL! Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of the lovely long weekend -hope there's no more thunder!

... well doodled bees, anyway! This weeks challenge at Sweet Stampin' is to add some doodling to your project! Personally, I don't mind a little bit of doodling but there has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth from some of the DT!
For my card I used this lovely little baby bee fairy from Mo Manning, coloured with copics. The bees on the yellow circle are hand doodled as is the little bee by the hand written sentiment. The 2 little bees in the top left corner are cut with a memory box die, their wings are cut from acetate, which doesn't show very well in the photo but is quite effective IRL!
Thanks for taking the time to look! Please hop over to Sweet Stampin' to check out what the rest of the DT have made... fabulous creations despite all the anguish! Then get out your pens and start doodling - you could win a prize from one of our lovely sponsors-Sir Stampalot, Crafters Companion or The Ribbongirl.
Have a lovely weekend!

Good afternoon! here's a quick card I made for this week's Less is More challenge. The theme is a one layer card with a coloured card blank. My favourite Penny Black stamp, some letter stamps, a few coloured pencils and a white gel pen, job done, Cheers!
As this is a rather quick post I thought some of you might like to see some pictures of my baby - a very large baby now! She was 7 months old when these were taken...she's now 8 months and still growing fast!

Good morning my lovelies! Hope you enjoyed the weekend, mine would have been better if there had been a bit more sun and a bit less wind chill! Hope we're not in for another bloomin' miserable summer!
I'll stop moaning now and move quickly on to the new challenge at Songbirds which is "Bloom and Grow" - a lovely theme where you can really go to town adding all those gorgeous flowers to your cards! We are sponsored this fortnight by SKdigis who gave us some images to play with. I have used the very cute Bo the Dragonfly to make my card, he's coloured with copics and then I added an extra layer to his wings made from acetate coloured with alcohol inks and sprayed with glimmer mist (messy... but fun!).
Please pop over to Songbird Challenges now, check out the gorgeous cards my team mates have made and then why not enter one of your own lovely flowery cards into our challenge, go on... it'll be fun!
Have a great week, here's hoping for some sunshine!!!

Good morning! The weekend is here ...and for those of us in the UK it's a long one....yay! I'm hoping the weather forecast is right for Sunday (sunshine, warm sunshine!) as we're planning on getting the barbie out! It was my son's birthday on Thursday and he's requested a family bbq to celebrate, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
Anyway...back to today, Saturday and a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. This week we want you all to create a scene... so spit out your dummies, lay on the floor kicking and screaming, throw a mega wobbly in the supermarket... oh, not that kind of a scene! (Might be fun though...) A scene on your card or project!
I made my card for my son's birthday, he's an avid golfer and this image from QKR Stampede fitted the bill perfectly! I think it will make him smile!
Thanks for looking and don't forget to pop over to Sweet Stampin' to check out what my lovely and oh-so-talented teamies have made!
Have a fabulous weekend!
