Papertake Weekly Challenge

Hi all, hope you all had a fab mothers day and those of you who are mums, were spoilt rotten.

Just thought I'd share one of the mothers day cards I made which I'm entering in to the Papertake Weekly Challenge which has the theme of One for the Girls or Mum.........

I absolutely love this image which is Wee Florist from Wee Stamps - altho to be honest I think all Sylvia's images are adorable!!  She is such a pretty little girl and I loved colouring her up.

I've used papers by Craft Creations which again I bought at my local Samuel Taylor shop.  I'm loving the freshness and simplicity of these papers at the moment and think by using them it doesn't detract too much from the image!

I've coloured her using prisma pencils, blended with sansodor and I've added a bit of stickles to add a bit of sparkle.  The ribbon and pearls were also from Samuel Taylor.

I've hand made the Mum sentiment and the verse was printed on the PC.

Hope you all have a lovely day and I hope to be back soon.

First Card in Yonks........!!

Hi blogland, long time no see........

After well over a year away from crafting and realising how much I missed making cards etc, I'm back...! LOL  I sold all my old craft stash, but am slowly starting to rebuild my bits and pieces.  I've made a few cards over the last few weeks but this is my first to post on here in such a long time (wasn't sure if I could even remember how to do it... lol).

I made this card the other day but it fits in with the challenge over at Pink Gem - which is Pastels.  I made the card using the freebie image "Dillon" which Janet has over at Pink Gem. It's absolutely adorable and I've made a couple of cards already with the image as I love colouring him in.

I've coloured him using prisma pencils blended with sansodor.  The pale yellow paper is called "Small white dots on pale yellow" and it's from Craft Creations Ltd, which I bought from my local Clickoncrafts shop - as is the ribbon and I've used stickles to highlight bits.

Hope you like it and it's sooooo good to be back.  I have been visiting some blogs and taking a peek at some of your cards which are fab, hopefully I'll start leaving comments soon.

Take care
