Clearly Besotted Happy Everything

I finally caved in and bought the 'happy everything" stamp set from Clearly Besotted, I have wanted it since it was first released and I finally had someone I could use it for. 

I embossed the rose in white and coloured with my colics, I had to be more careful than normal as when the copic got on the white the only way to remove it was with the blender pen. I coloured the rose on pti white and it gives a lovely effect even though it takes longer and is more difficult than the rymans 200gsm smooth.

I coloured the image at last months Bristol play day and everyone now wants the stamp and their birthday cards made with it to.

Panda Paul

Every year I have to find a panda image to make a very special card, this is for the lady who introduced me to card making and who is responsible for my bank account being considerably lighter lol. 

I happened upon this image during an afternoon of blog hopping and couldn't believe I hadn't seen it before, as soon as I saw the name I knew it was perfect as Paul is her sons name. 

I hope she likes the card and has a fantastic day, many happy returns Sue.

Beer Peep - stamping bella again

I adore these images by stamping bella in fact I like them so much I have ordered all the ones I can find lol. This was so easy to colour and looks so effective especially with a liberal coat of glossy accents, but I just noticed I forgot his shoes lol, oh well they were supposed to be white....

I used left over paper from the last guy birthday cards and didn't intend making this one but my mum saw the last one I made and decided she needed it so I had to start again. I am still loving the a2 size of cards and think this may be my go to for a while.

As I used snippets on the card I am going to enter the Snippet Playground challenge, it is a while since i joined in and I hope there is still room on the ark for me.

Oh just noticed that the less is more challenge is masculine cards, well this is a cad card so I am going to enter, hopefully it isn't to crowded to qualify.

A Sassy Birthday Wish

I made this card for a lovely crafty do crafter who celebrated her birthday recently. I know it is safe to post it here because her birthday was last month. I have used a favourite of mine from sassy cheryl and I love the expression on her face lol.

I have used a very bright pink card stock and as it is from the sampler I will have to order more as it is much nicer irl.
