Some pics of the garden

It was a quite a nice day today so a BBQ was a must! Took these pics of the garden as the colours were lovely!

Ears are ringing!

Had the best time ever last night! Seeing Nickelback at the Glasgow SECC -the Dark Horse Tour. Totally awesome!! The music and effects were terrific and Chad's rapport with the crowd (which looked like a packed house!) was great! They were supported by Black Stone Cherry - totally brilliant - worth paying for on their own! They teamed up for a cover of Highway To Hell - just about raised the roof!! The encore started with a cover of Kings of Leon. Just an absolutely fantastic night!

Hi! Just to let you know that Michelle over at the fabulous Card Grotto has a fantastic blog candy on offer! So a huge "Happy Birthday" to Michelle when it comes! Check it out!

Floating Softly

Something a wee bit different for me - I've had this stamp for ages - it's called Floating Softly by Frances Mahon for Stamps Happen Inc. The papers are DCWV Once Upon a time. The flowers are Prima and the crystals are Swarovski (Purple Velvet). No idea what greeting to put on the card as I have no idea what occasion it would be for!

mummy to be!

Another different one for me - well, at least it's not a birthday card!

Distressed Mummy!

Thought this would be good as a get well card - in the right circumstances obviously, and only if the person had a good sense of humour!!
The stamp is from Art Gone Wild - Johnny. Papers are Co'redinations Whitewash and Dreamstreet Nostalgic. I used a Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser, an Xcut Distressing Tool and a very sharp felting needle. The bandages are sizzlits.

This is what happens when you give stamped images to a four year old. I asked her to make them nice and bright! I think I have a card maker in the making! Her colouring is neater than mine!

chocolate and pink!

papers are SEI Jolie Chocolat. Coloured with Marvys, as usual!

More Baby Boy!

Maggie May

Papers are from My Minds Eye - Maggie May. I just love these colours! I've not used this Magnolia stamp for ages. She's coloured with Marvys and a watercolour brush.
I'm starting to think all my cards look the same. Do I need some new inspiration?

Retro Rose Vellum

This is the vellum from the new Retro Rose collection by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

Another guy card..

Inspired by Basic Grey Marrakech papers. Coloured with Promarkers. Made this one after "tidying" my craft space. Well, when I say tidy I mean I can now actually see the desk!

Lovebirds from DigiStamp Boutique. Check out their site - Absolutely fab! Colours inspired by Basic Grey Lime Rickey. Coloured using a mix of "on the run" and promarkers.

Count your blessings...
