Bumble boy

I love this Hangler image (thank you Andrea for letting me stamp him). I coloured him in with distress inks, added a tiny bit of glitter on his wings. All the papers are by Bo Bunny. The ribbon I got from my local garden centre and pin from Hobby House. I machine stitched the paper and added  some brads in all corners.

Too true.....

 I made this fun birthday card  for the more discerning lady using a digi image from Bugaboo . The sentiment is only too true !! 
I coloured the image with Prisma pencils and copics for the skin. The images and sentiment are mounted onto SU cardstock with the patterned paper being cosmo cricket. The felt flower I have had for ages and have no idea who it is by. Again there is the obligatory machine stitching :) I am entering this card into  the Bee crafty challenge  who is celebrating their first Birthday.

Glitter glitter everywhere.....

.....and there certainly was glitter everywhere after spilling almost half a  container of glamour dust all over me and the floor. Husband to the rescue with the hoover as I daren't move................
For this card I used a Magnolia image coloured with distress inks. I cut the image out and sat her on a cluster of glittery easter eggs. The rub on is a sentiment I have had in my stash for ages which I placed on a hand cut flaggy thing. Again , and as usual, I machine stitched around the patterned paper. The pink is by Bo Bunny the other I have no idea as it was a bit found in my left over drawer.
I am entering this into the just Magnolia challenge which is a sketch by Jane and the Totally Papercrafts challenge which asks for pink and green.

Daisy daisy ............

I used what I think is a beautiful stamp by stamping bella called Daisy bitty bloom. I coloured it with distress inks and dotted dots of glamour dustover the image. I used cosmo cricket papperned paper and buttons from papertrey. The card looks wonky in the photo which I assure you it isn't.

I have used a wonderful Pure Innocence stampby Heather Ellis  for this card. Again I coloured it with Distress inks. The paper is by October afternoon  mounted on Kraft cardstock.
I am going to enter this into the Quixotic challenge which is Leave it out which is asking us to use leaves somewhere. Can you see my Leaves ?  Get the magnifier out.......(they are at the top!!!).

Just because the sun is out.....

I thought I would  make a summery card. I coloured the Hanglar stamp in with distress inks, mounted that on cosmo cricket paper and kraft cardstock. All of this was mounted onto red corregated card from my stash. I have used plenty of twine and seaside beads I have had for ages...
