Cascade of hearts #2

And on the same theme!   6" square card this time.

Bright Flowers again!

Made for a friend.  The papers are Pebbles Inc (I'm running out of them and can't find them anywhere - should have bought more at the time!!)

Cascade of hearts

Cascade of hearts is made with SU! Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake cardstock, Cherry Cobbler DSP, Crumb Cake and Early Expresso ink, Cherry Cobbler Ribbon and some First Edition DSP.  The sentiment is from Sealed with a Kiss.  I used the Heart punch for the little hearts.

I really enjoyed making this one - simple but I love the colours.  The card is 8x8" which is fast becoming my favourite size!

Using up some 1" square scraps of Summer Days paper from Echo Park.  The stamp is Pheobe Ketto (love her!)
A simple wee card!
Papers and digi on this are Pink Petticoat. I've made a similar card before - ages ago. I don't do paper piecing very often so I thought I would try it here.

Dino Birthday!

Colour this cute digi using copics.   Can't remember where I got the image from (I'll check!) but he's lovely to colour!

A little envelope mini album

Made this little mini book with three cheap brown C5 envelopes.  The gorgeous image is a digi from Saturated Canary. She's coloured with SU inks using a blender pen.
Each of the six open ends of the envelopes contains a tabbed insert - ready to be personalised!
Really loved making this! 

Brr... it's freezing out there today! 
Not that it's bothered me for the most part as I've been enjoying the lovely warmth of my craft room! Been mainly doing SU stuff (additicted!).. can't wait for the Sale-A-Bration which starts tomorrow.  I have a very long wish list!

The blue card and paper, and ink, is SU Baja Breeze - its a really lovely shade, perfect for this Gorjuss Girl - I've coloured her using the blender pen.

Been busy doing a spot of crafting with my new best friend!
Yes, my newly discovered SU Blender Pen!!  Used it to colour these lovely Saturated Canary images using my SU In Colors!  
I just need to make the cards now.  But I think I might do some more colouring first!

Lovin' my swiss dots!

My mojo is still not quite back home (as you can see!!) but I've been trying to tempt it back. At the moment I can't see past my Swiss Dots embossing folder!

Trip to Stirling planned for tomorrow!  a wee visit to Flawless... great place!!

A quandry...

Over the last few years I've bought quite a few craft CDs.. some good, some not so good. All of them seem to limit my imagination.  A question though.. is crafting using craft CDs really creative?  ....

Oh I'm so glad I'm getting my card making mojo back! But I've not been twiddling my thumbs over the last few weeks.. knitted 5 scarves, stiched 3 felt owls, needle felted one owl, made candies with Sarah, and did a general tidy up of the craft room!  All that and spent some real quality time with my lovely family!  oh, and some scrapbooking of our Disney holiday last year!  Perfect!

Some recent cards!

Two cards for lovely new additions to the world.  November and December babies always make me think (as all new babies do) how lucky I am, and every parent is!  The feeling, every day, is priceless!
