Hi Everyone, this card was made because I saw a sketch that I liked and chose this lovely image from my files to make it. It's been in there for a long time and I don't think I have used it. I was going to add a few things, but after colouring the image 4 times, I gave up and was just glad to get it done, but decided maybe it just wasn't good enough. A day or two after, I thought, she's OK and I can still enter the challenge, it's the taking part isn't it? then I took photos and forgot to add the little extras I was going to. In the end I decided to go as it is!
Here she is, such a lovely image. I did a print and cut on the Cameo, then coloured her with DI's. Before I give it to someone I may add a die cut or 2? We'll see.

Hi Everyone, my card today is for
I really didn't know what to do, so I looked through my stamps and my cut files and decided to put the ones I found together, so my take on the challenge today is Water!
I cut the background out on the digital cutting machine and added DO's and DI's to the background, pulled out a stencil, that I seem to reaching for all the time, and stenciled the sea and clouds. Stamped the birds and boat, coloured them with DI's added white pen to the waves, then 3d'd the sentiment. Off to find some card to add to the background and found a dark navy that I liked, voila all done! btw, the light blue surround is from my lightbox background.

Now my post for today -
Haven't we been so lucky with the beautiful sunshine in the UK, to make us feel happier. I can live with sunshine everyday, how about you. I don't mind the rain at night though.
It's one of the same stamp I did the other day I stamped and coloured, but didn't know what else I wanted to do with it, after a long while with no mojo and couldn't be bothered, I came up with this. I still have 2 others waiting in the wings with the same stamp. I cut an oval frame and before adding I used the inside of the frame as a mask to ink outwards from the image, I kept the mask in place and used a border die to "sort of" match the music bars, I stamped the birthday wishes the frame was added and also a bow and a button die. I layered onto the same card I cut the frame from and added it to a ready made card base.

Hi Everyone, I hope you've been enjoying the glorious weather we have been having in the UK. I actually had a couple of hours freedom from things and read in quiet contemplation in the garden, with only the birds to disturb my peace, pure bliss! I can tell you I have needed it.
Anyhow, another birthday card today I made for hubby from my son, he wanted funny as always, so here it is. You may think that the DAD is not level, it's not supposed to be, my son always says Dad raising the last letter for some reason, so it's done for that.
I saw a card that I cased, more with the words than the card though, but it didn't have any name on it, so I'm sorry I can't give credit to the owner.
I did a print and cut of the stamp, then coloured it, not with great success, but I know hubby won't notice Bless him. Papers were layered onto black paper and I also made a background like a room. I used a stencil for the Dad. The image has 3 layers, when all glued together I added them to the card front, with the sentiments and the border paper.
