 Hello everyone,

I have an easel to share today, in fact I have quite a few easel cards to share, I start and just keep going until the novelty wears off..sometimes quickly, sometimes not..

This one started with these papers, the flowers look water coloured
and I wanted to try and match them..

I loved the green foliage papers too so they were a must..

and lovely sentiment stamp..wooden one, had it for years..

My die cut flowers, Anemones from Altenew.
cut with card stock that matched pretty good..

Easel taking shape..

My leaves which need water colouring to tie it altogether..

I love the water colour anything, so relaxing and you don't even have to try, it just happens.

The Anenome getting it's center, these I colour with my markers..


Leaves and a Hummingbird, water coloured too..

On went the flowers...

and the bird...

Laying flat with the gems and leaves all in place..

Standing up and looking down...

and an angle shot...

I'm so enjoying making these again, been a long time..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you Wednesday for DT project.


PS..We have moved to daylight saving, how hard is it to add 1 hour onto my post schedule..
pretty hard if you live in my brain...ha ha ha..

 Hello everyone,

A nice quiet Sunday afternoon here after a morning of spending too much money with my Daughter, but we did at least half our Christmas shopping today, so all in all a good day..

Sharing a card I made a while ago using up left overs from my tray's..

I cut the Sizzix flowers and telephone out of the same card stock, such a pretty shade of pink..

The papers shouldn't really go together but they do, they are scraps..

A die cut hello and backing..

the telephone, love putting these together..

Stamped and gold embossed sentiment...

Gorgeous Honey Bee Stamps, Bumble Bee..

And there we go..
Could be a card for quite a few causes really..
but for now, it is a hello card..

The couch is calling, so thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow..

BARRY ON THE BEACH..or is he?...

 Hello everyone,

Had some free play time today and wanted to join in with Tag Tuesday and their theme is Books/Book pages..time to destroy an old phone book for the love of CRAFT..

But first I need some images and had an idea..

These piles of book were a freebie colouring in pages site..printed and fussy cut..

Then fetched Barry out of a colouring folder as I knew what I needed to do..

He was fussy cut by cutting away the sandcastle and the spade then slipped into place....

Onto the phone book...

Cut my tag shape and had all my bits ready to go..

I screwed up the pages to get more texture
 then glued them down with a glue stick..

When all dry I inked up the edges...

Glued down the books after colouring with my markers..
and the labels were added after printing them out on computer.

Barry coloured with my pencils, my favourite way to colour him..

A close up of the book labels......
Maths, I hear you ask, well, yes, he has to learn to count the Bee's to make sure he can make all the honey..

and there he is, all coloured with a glossy nose and looking pretty excited..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

I'm back to share a card I made with Tim Holtz leaves with bug holes in them and I LOVE them..

They are huge, take up room, sooooo, that means I can make bigger cards..yay!..

But first, I needed back grounds.....

and inked up panels to cut out my leaves...

in rich Autumn/Fall colours..

Yep..[ no idea here] probably showing I used foam tape..

But here are the leaves, they a so delicious..

And laying on the panel I made for the background.

Die cut and layered, then added this huge LOVE word on matt gold cardstock..
and also sprinkle these fabulous wooden hearts all over..

not too much dimension..

added a twine bow..

made two of them..and also added the gold, stamped, heat embossed sentiment.

and was done..

Thank you so much for stopping by..


Trumpet blowing time...

 Hello everyone,

Back with my DT project for our new challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON  and it our lovely Kate, who is hostess, and her theme is.. ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE ..

I have a lot of pictures as it was a long sort of day when I made these..but so much fun..

I made my background with Nuvo shimmer powders, then filled it holes before I showed it..

The holes are these tiny flowers..

Very tiny...and squished onto this foam to cup them.

Then tiny centers with Nuvo drops..

Then added onto these little branches..

Then die cut tiny leaves, just a few at a time, but relaxing..

added flowers and leaves to the branches ..

And there they are...

Leftovers, pretty good considering I lost count after thirty..

Inked up a soft cloudy sky..

Used my new die with the stamp edging...I like that.

In blue and three gold embossed stamped sentiments..

The branches were cut to fit as well as the full size ones..

Mild dimension..

moving on to pink...

Same thing happened but in pink..

Mild dimension...

and a funny photo shot, not sure where I was going with this one!!..

So there we go...

Thank you so much for stopping by,
 I'll see you tomorrow..
