Winged Things

I can't believe it's Monday again, it comes around so quickly! I was a busy crafter this weekend and managed another card. When I saw the challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week was 'Winged Things' I was very temped to use a fairy image, however this little fella has never seen an ink pad, so I thought i'd use him instead.

I needed a crafting fix this afternoon after watching my 12 year old's football team get thrashed once more this morning, I think they hold the record for being beaten by more than 10 goals in every game this season! So i got busy and made two cards, the first one was inspired by the theme of 'black and white' at Passion for promarkers.

Afternoon Tea

I absolutely love ALL the stamps from LOTV, unfortunately I do not own nearly enough of them! and so I have 'cheated' a little with this card as the image was already stamped and part of a freebie in a magazine. The stamp is called 'Hello Cupcake' and is perfect for this week's challenge at Lili's Little Fairies which is 'Afternoon Tea'. I love my promarkers, but thought I'd try something a bit different and have used my watercolours to colour in the image. I was quite pleased with it, but definately need more practice with my water brush, I couldn't seem to keep the water flowing?! Any tips gratefully received!

Sentiment - LOTV
Paper - another freebie!
Card - Papermania
Yellow card embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder and cut using spellbinders Lattice Pendant

Flower Power

I'm on a bit of a roll now that I've got my mojo back and I had a sort out of my stamps yesterday. This stamp from Penny Black is one of my favourites and I thought it would work well with the theme of Flower Power at Cute Card Thursday this week.

Dark pink card - Papermania
Pink paper embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder
PB image coloured with promarkers
Scalloped squares, lacy ovals, scalloped and standard circle - Spellbinders
Roses - Wild Orchid
Everything else is from stash (I'm really bad for throwing away packaging and then forgetting where I bought things!)

Anything Goes

I never thought for a moment when I posted back in August last year that it would be February before I posted again. Life really does get in the way sometimes! I won't bore you all with the whys and wherefores of the last few months, suffice to say that I'm glad to be back and am looking forward to getting back into crafting and blogging on a regular basis. I thought I'd ease my way back into things to start with and so I have entered some challenges with a card I made recently for my Nan who was 92!
