Cornelia Indian

What a fabulous image from Saturated Canary, I couldn't resist her.  I was looking for something to make with a food theme,  and this was the best digi I found, she is carrying corn from the fields. I wanted to enter into the Colour by Design blog challenge,HERE ! the theme today is food!  I coloured her in with Copics, and used the Prima Botanical papers, and real feathers!! Super colours hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by xxxx

Here comes Molly!

What a beautiful little Molly Blooms stamp. I took advantage of my other half yesterday, he was at home "working" and said "fancy going anywhere?"  Foolish chap... I took him off to Peterborough to Sir Stampalot.. hence the Molly Blooms stamp and Bo Bunny papers !! LOL.... mind you we also ended up at the train shop (for those that don't know, we have a garden railway layout ! )  So we both got spoilt rotten.  This little card is for a colleague at work, whose birthday is later this month. Hope she likes it.

Thank you for stopping by, and for all you very kind comments.

This is a lovely little collection of digi images from Cuddly Buddly,  I forgot to upload this when I completed this a few weeks ago,  so here we go! I used the scrap for a nice side border !!  Love those butterflies from the Sizzix stamp and Framelits range.. I had just taken delivery of my new Copics when I coloured this in,  so don't look too closely ! lol x

Thanks so much for stopping by,  and thank you to my new member!  xx

Plumpy pumpkin

How lovely is he!  A lovely plump pumpkin, he looks like he's had too many goody bags!  The image is from Meljen's designs, and coloured with Copics, and highlighted with a white pen. All the edges have been distressed and mounted onto a picture frame which has had canvas stretched over to give a nice firm base. He is going to sit on my hall table to welcome all the Autumn visitors to my home.

And a close up of Plumpy! Not sure you can see, he has glitter on the image,  and a few spots on his face, they shouldn't be there. Note to self, brush off image before taking a photo !  I have now run out of time today, so this will have to do!  lol xxx

 This shows the canvas, it has been wrapped around the photo frame, which holds a standard photo,  I have distressed the edges with Tim Holz vintage photo, and in real life it's a bit darker than this.  Hope you like it.

Another lovely Cuddly Buddly image and still using the Prima patterned papers too, I love these colours, they are so perfect for a Christmassy image.  I have layered up the papers, did loads of faux stitching, and using my favourite banner shape for the sentiment, which has been printed onto Safmat.  I have used Copics to colour in.

And the inside too:

My little ray of sunshine

My youngest beautiful daughter had her 3rd baby 4 weeks ago, in fact Baby Sebastian is exactly 1 month old!  Goodness how time flies, it only seems like yesterday we were on standby waiting for the call to gather up the other grandchildren ready for the new arrival!  She is the most wonderful "child" you could wish for, she copes like no other person I know,  and has such a positive outlook no matter what problems come her way.

 As a little thank you from me for giving me another beautiful Grandson I have made this card, it sort of sums her up... it will be included into a little parcel, which will include tea bags (her favourite tipple), pretty hair scrunchies, pretty beads, and anything else I can think of, if anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful !

I used a lovely digi from Saturated Canary HERE ! And beautiful papers from Raspberry Road Stacked papers ! I coloured in with Copics, hand made the flower, added ribbon and buttons and 2 die cut hearts from Marianne Designs, one each!

I am going to enter this into these challenges:
I love this card, and apologies to Pink Gem for including this card into such a new challenge... but I couldn't resist. xxx Lizzy 5/1/13.

Lots of Love

I really am pleased with how this card turned out,  and for whatever reason I love the inside as much as the outside!  I am just starting to realise how important the inside is to the recipient,  so I shall probably keep on doing this.  The image is from Cuddly Buddly, as are the Prima North Country paper stack.  Really only used these papers, I love them lots! 

I coloured her in with my Copics,  yay for Copics,  I love love love them... yes completely barmy!!

Thank you for stopping by.. I will be entering this into some challenges, more details to follow. xx

Playful Peonies

Good morning fellow crafties... it's a beautiful sunny morning in Suffolk, and I'm just about to hang out the washing... BUT I just needed to post this lovely card for my Mum,  it's her birthday on Friday, she'll be 82, still tutoring in altered textile art, going to classes and entering competitions, she is a very clever lady. I tried to get her to blog to show off her work,  but although she has all the lastest gadgets and gizmo's, (Latest Ipad etc) she never seems to have enough time to blog, I know how she feels !! lol.  Anyway, my simple card using Playful peonies from Stitchy Bears was perfect, it's her favourite flower, you can find it here .

I used my wonderful Copics, and the pic shows the inside too,  not the most brilliant of pics but I am still learning. 

Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for your lovely comments, it means so much to me, and keeps me going.

Yo !

Isn't she cute!  I think she is trying to be a cool dude,  however I think she is just a cute kid with a birthday... she is "Yo" from Stitchy bears, you can find her here I had some fun with this using up some scraps, of course it hasn't made a dent in them,  but I am determined to use some up before I buy anymore... yer right ! lol.  I used my Copic markers to colour her in. She is going to be given to my beautiful Granddaughter Lily who will be 5 at Christmas.

Beside the sea

Gosh it seems ages since I last posted anything,  I have been so busy, not sure what I have been doing, but I haven't had time for crafting !!! My goodness I am having fun this morning with my little victorian girl, she is so sweet, you can find her on Nicecrane designs here I think these images are so beautiful, and so easy to colour in if you want a quick card.  The background paper is from my absolute favourite paper digi website, Raspberry Road, find them here fabulous designs!  I have used spider web from Kanban for the sea effect, lovely little acrylic beads from Oh My Crafts (USA). I covered a "b" chipboard peice with sand effect paper, also Raspberry Road, and the rest of the Bon Voyage is using safmat with a computer generated words.
I hope you like her.

It's Autumn

What a fabulous digi stamp from Crafts and Me,  you can find her here, I love the etheral artwork of Sara Burrier, so talented. I used my Copics to colour her in, and the AUTUMN sentiment was free at Raspberry Road Designs, another very talented lady, I just love her papers and digi sets, I have far too many!  As if!  They can be used in Serif so very handy for digi scrapbook pages, and individual elements for cards, take a look. This card is for my Mum who's birthday is this month.
