Fairy Garden

Good Afternoon Folks

Once again it is raining in Kendal, good for me though as I have been trying to do a
bit of crafting, as cannot walk to well due to knackered knee at the moment.

I have made a card using the new Paper Pads from
beCreations and oh they are gorgeous and such a lovely quality.
The image I used is called Fairy Garden 6 which is on the Flights of Fantasy CD
and is also  available from
and |I coloured her using beCreations Alcohol Markers
using only Warm Greys and a lot of a blending marker
I also used a touch of beCreative Glitter glue on the Tattered lace
The flowers were also made using the Paper Pads and
sprayed with Spray n Boss, to stop them flattening in the post.
Thank you for stopping by and thank you for any
comments you leave.

Morning Folks
Not said Good lol as its still raining here and we are still waiting to see if we
are going to be Husbands birthday today 69yrs time has gone so fast
we first met when he was 17yrs.
He always says not to bother making a card for him so this year I didn't but
had a go at a Canvas and as he loves his gardening and loves all flowers I used a
Chocolate Baroque stamp I have had for years.
It was all coloured using be Creating ! ink pads and the Stenciling  was done using
their glitter glue gel from an idea from
Sally Homes so thank you for this great idea Sally.  And some of the flowers where coloured
using be Creative! Alcohol Markers

Thank you for visiting

If I had a rose for every time I thought of you,
I'd be picking roses for a lifetime

Something a little different for me

Good Afternoon Folks

I think I have forgotten what daylight is like, there has been non here in Kendal
for days now and even had a flood Alert last night so fingers crossed it
will stop raining soon.

I have been having a messy play, just with some pinflair gilding liquid, not sure
about the frame what do you think ?

I have used another of my favourite
Aurora Wings image
and have used
"be-Creative Crafts Alcohol Markers  and the frame was cut using my Cameo

Thank you for visiting and would love to read your comments on this one.

Evening Folks,

Yes its me back again twice in one day lol.
I would just like to show you an image from Aurora Wings
created by the amazing Mitzi Sato Wiuff
I have grouped this and generally played about with 3 images using
Craft Artist 2 then it was coloured using ............ yes you know it
"be-Creative Crafts " New Alcohol Markers.
and made into a very simple card, which those who know me, know I
do not do CAS cards but this subject does not need anything I think.

Hope you like this.

Spooky Wedding Anniversary

Good Morning Folks

Hope your weekend is going well.
I have my DT card for Polkadoodles/Inky Pinkies to show you today
It is a Wedding Anniversary card I made for my Son & Daughter in Law, they
had a Halloween themed reception, hence they always received Halloween cards for
their anniversary.

I used 3 of Polkadoodles Spooky Halloween  images, I took them all into Serif and got rid of all the white
backgrounds and grouped into one image then found one of Polkadoodles background papers
that are included in this collection .
Grouped them all together, printed, and then coloured the images.
The spiders web frame was cut using my Cameo. The sentiment, which I think is
too big and takes over the card I made using the Foiling element of the TODO, but had
to leave it as it is the only anniversary sentiment I had and no time to buy another lol.

I hope you like this
Thanks for visiting
