Flowerbed Teddy

I am still playing catch up with last year’s cards. My mojo is still missing and I haven’t felt like colouring or creating at all this year. I really hope that it will return soon!

As I haven’t coloured anything this year, I thought it was highly appropriate that I posted up one of the cards I made last year using a pre-coloured image. The image is by Lili of the Valley. I’ve used Papermania papers, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, some bits from Craftwork cards. A button and some liquid pearls.

Kiss for the teddy bear

Time for another non-Christmas card. This is a step card made from a WhichCraft card blank and papers from Papermania. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Cafts, the punchers are Martha Stewart, the ribbon from The Hobby House, the lace from a local shop. I have made the sentiment myself and coloured in an Elisabeth Bell image found on the art pads you can buy at The Hobby Hose. I used Copics to colour it.

The various bits will be linked up once I am back home at the end of the week

Here comes summer!

Goodness me, why does late spring / early summer always fly past so fast! I’m pretty sure April was only just a few days ago. So much to do, but all good. I have barely had time to craft the past couple of months! Hopefully things will calm down a little, so I at least have time to make the few cards I have on request, plus the ones I’d like to give away myself!

Today I have another card for my Guest Designer spot over at Deep Ocean Challenges. The theme for these two weeks is here comes summer. Perfect challenge theme if you ask me! I’ve picked greens and blues as that well represents summer for me. Green grass and leaves everywhere and blue sky and water. I’ve spent a few summers in the countryside by a lake, hehe.

The pre-coloured image is from Lili of the Valley; the sentiment stamp is also from there. The papers are from stash I’ve had for a couple of years. QuicKutz dies and Martha Stewart punchers have been used as well as flowers and a bow from Wild Orchid Crafts. I really love those big brown daisy looking flowers! I’ve also used a little blue distress ink and some flatback pearls.

Surprise present

Another card today. Two within a week almost feels like a record! Today we have another Christmas card in perhaps somewhat unusual colours. A little over a month to go and I’m sure it will fly by so quickly I’m going to have to post a card here almost daily to get them all posted before Christmas! Anyway, here it is:
