Love bear

He is such a cutie, a digital stamp, can't say from where !  Needless to say I enjoyed using my Copic pens on him and I especially like how his fur turned out.

Enjoy and Happy New Year to you all xxxx

Welcome to you

This is rather special to me, it's using images from Make It Crafty, I love the quirky images, they suit me..... so I am entering this into their DT call. Wish me luck. The brief was to use an image from their range and make something suitable for new friends... after a week or two of thinking I came up with this, and I rather like it!  I am not giving this away, this is a keeper.

Coloured with copic pens, and using paper pad DCWV French Country Stack 12"x12" which is totally stunning. I used my Cricut to cut the embellies, vintage photo distress ink to define the edges. Pearls buttons and seam binding complete the design.

The light is so bad here in Suffolk today,  so apologies for the quality of the photo, I might take the pics again when the sun is out.

Thank you for stopping by, xxxx

I've renamed my blog to lizzydoodles.... I have been asked recently what my blog is and my previous name seemed to cause confusion, hopefully this one is easier!

Molly Blooms

I recently went to a workshop with Clare Rowlands,  and this is the project we made, using her stamps and knowledge!  "Today" she said " we are doing construction" oh dear I thought, not sure about that!  But I really enjoyed the class and didn't do too bad a job to the construction bit.

Hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by. xx

Are you ready?

I seem to be on a roll... long may it continue!  This is my Christmas card for all my neighbours and friends... It is a papershelter image, which I have printed and used my wonderful Copic pens on.. I scanned it, and then using some software inserted it into a photo frame using a scrap layout from Raspberry Road designs.. then I printed the whole thing onto glossy all worked out rather well,  a touch of real embellishments, an insert and hey presto 40 cards! I did the same for my Grandchildren, they coloured several images from Meljen's designs. We made loads of cards in just a few hours.  They just stuck them onto A6 cards.

This is my original art work,  super cute image from one of my favourite digi sites, The Paper Shelter. Sorry about the quality of the photo's but time has slipped past me again today!

You Rock

Happy Christmas, you rock!
Well hello to blogland,  I haven't been here for ages, due to personal reasons, which are now on an even keel!  So Christmas is nearly upon us all,  and as I smugly sit here typing, my cards are made and my presents are wrapped,  oh yes indeedy... my latest card for Cuddly Buddly,  and if anyone of you follow them on Facebook you will  have seen loads of my creations there over the last couple of months!

I didn't have time to crop it.  So you have a lovely view of my carpet in front of my patio doors!  Oh the joy of never having enough hours in the day.  Crafty hugs to everyone...xxxx
