I'm back!!!

Hello, remember me? I'm sorry I've not been blogging lately but life got in the way and I've not be feeling much like doing anything. However, just in this last week I've found that crafting was taking my mind off my worries so I have some cards to share- they're not all my usually CAS style, I just went with what I felt like doing- hope you're still there reading my little old blog! 

This card was made using a free digital image from the latest Crafters Companion magazine (bought to cheer me up) , now normally I don't use digital images but when I saw it I knew I'd enjoy colouring it in, and I did! :-)

Back soon,

ATCAS- Splash

Morning, sorry I'm late with todays ATCAS DT card- I've had the post ready to go for over a week but I just scheduled it for the wrong day! I'm not having a good few weeks so you'll have to forgive me! 

Anyway, on to the challenge and it's my turn to be the host. This is a bitter-sweet honour as it's also my last week on the DT with ATCAS. Despite loving working with the Kylie and the rest of the team at ATCAS I'm just going through some personal "stuff" at the moment which is playing havoc with my organisation and planning! 

So, here is my keyword. I've chosen this as, when Kylie asked me to pick it months ago, I thought that by this time in the year it'd be lovely and warm here in the UK and we'd be grateful for a little splash of water. However, we aren't having the best weather today, intact it's actually raining here in little ol' Blackpool!!!

Finally, here is my card. A Cute little Clearly Besotted whale stamped, fussy cut and coloured with Copics. The background was made using the SU Grunged stamp set and some Doodlebug embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Adventure Ahead

Hello, I managed to make a card yesterday and I got around to photographing it today. It was inspired by the theme over at Simply Less Is More which is "home" as well as one layer. 

I added interest to the base card by embossing one of my new Lawn Fawn stitched frame dies. I did this by taping it down with some low-tack scotch tape and then ran it through my Big Shot Plus with a rubber mat underneath- this meant the shape was embossed rather than cut.

Then I stamped the house and sentiment (both from Stampin Up) and then coloured the image with Copic /markers.

Anyone for tennis?

Hello, just flying by to share a cute little summery tennis-themed LOTV card for a friend of mine whose birthday it is on Friday. I hope she likes it!

Morning, I hope you are having a relaxing weekend. I'm trying to and had a lovely night out last night with a friend whose birthday it was so I thought I'd show you the card I made her.

The sentiment is from Mamma Elephant (Splendid set) and has spaces of sunset-coloured Distress ink added using the Grunge stamp set from Stampin Up. I cut out the layers using the largest sized die from the MFT pierced rectangle STAX.

I love how this turned out, it's really fun and quite arty!

Thanks for stopping by today,

For my card I've used a Clearly Besotted Butterfly set that was released last month. 

To balance the pink of my butterfly I've also added a couple of banner strips of patterned paper at the top and a little jewell brad. 

Thanks for stopping by today and bearing with me while I'm not quite as organised and on top of everything as usual- normal service will hopefully be resumed before too long- fingers crossed!!

Monster Hugs

Evening, hope the first half of your week has been a good one. I'm flying by to share a cute little card made with some adorable alien/monster stamps from Lawn Fawn.

As you can see I stamped the images and then cut them out suing the matching dies. Next I coloured them with Distress Ink using a watercolour brush. I set the little scene by arranging them on a curved piece of paper- I had in mind that it would be like a little hill but on reflection I think it looks like the surface of an alien planet!

I think this will be a perfect card to give my hubby to make him smile as he's had a couple of hard days this week!

Thanks for stopping by,
