This beautiful digi image is from SUGAR NELLIE I decided to let the image speak for itself so made a very simple easel card.  I thought too many embelishments and DP would maybe detract from the stunning artwork.  I coloured the image with Promarkers.

I found this little cutie in a box of stamped images, I can't remember who it is by but I am sure someone will tell me.  I have coloured it with Promarkers and generated the sentiment on my pc.

Doesn't this little mouse look so comfy enjoying a wee snooze.  The image is a House Mouse design coloured with Promarkers, I edged the mats with a Promarker and generated the sentiment on my computer.  It is a horrible cold miserable day her in NE Scotland, the perfect crafting day.

A Baby card I made this morning the image is called Vintage Baby  by Sugar Nellie and  is available HERE.  I coloured the image with Promarkers. The background has been made with my Cuttlebug and inked over with Tim Holtz Distress ink.  this was mounted onto a mat that had been edged with the same ink.

Afternoon everyone from a very damp and chilly NE Scotland.  Something a litle different from me today, I don't usually do flowers but since doing a class with DEBBIE  I feel much more confident with my Promarkers.  The stamp is from the A Little Bit Sketchy range  from Sheena Douglass which you will find HERE

The Promarkers I used are, Burgundy, Poppy, Olive Green and Pear Green

I have made my first twisted easel card today for the challenge over on Facebook.  The image is Manga Princess which is available from FUNKY KITS.  I have colored it with Promarkers and have tried to put into practice the things I learned from super talanted DEBBIE .  Backing papers are from a Papermania pad I had in my stash.  I used a couple of punches for the leaves and flowers and added a flat backed Pearl to each flower center.


My new camera arrived this morning so I can finally post my card for the LESS IS MORE challenge.  This is the first time I have used a brayer although I have had one for an age just not been brave enough lol.  My stamp is from Stamping Up and the sentiment is from the SWALK rubber stamp collection from CRAFTERS COMPANION

No Photos

Morning everyone, I have been busy making cards but unfortunately I dropped my camera and have broken it.  My lovely husband has ordered me a new one, I hope it arrives in time to photograph my entry for the LESS IS MORE  challenge.  It is a horrible damp dull morning here in our corner of NE Scotland  so I think a crafty day might be in order.  I will be back with photos as soon as I can.  I could use his camera but as it cost an arm and a leg and I am such a butterfingers I think It is best left in the case lol.
