Just Because

I've had this sweet LOTV image 'Daydream' stamped and waiting to be coloured since the last LOTV stamp launch! I finally coloured her using my Copics, sorry I didn't write the colours down. I added some softly distressed clouds behind her by using a cloud die and sponging round it with my distress inks.


I made a step card from some 300gsm card, added some card and papers from my stash. I die cut a Magnolia flourish and a Memory Box fancy corner flourish. I added a Prima crystal pebble, some pearls and a couple of flowers with pearl stems behind a simple sentiment, I can use this card for any occasion!

Well, it's a little bit brighter here today! Although as I type this, the sun has gone behind a large dark cloud!! Thank you for all your lovely comments, I appreciate them all and welcome to my new followers:)) Thank you for stopping by.

Saturated Magic

Good morning everybody, A big welcome to my new followers and thank you to all of you who leave me a comment.

 I can't believe that I was the winner of Mandy's gorgeous candy over at her fabulous blog A Sprinkling of Glitter. My lovely goodies were here with me super quick and I have been having a play, but my mojo still seems to be awol. Mandy now has some more super candy, you can find the link in my sidebar.

Today I have a card to show you that I made using one of Krista Smiths Saturated Canary images, this one is called Nevaeh. I love these images and could buy all of them! I had to restrain myself and just buy a few.  I did a punched edge around my card which means I now have to make a box to give it in!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges: Die Cuts Week 142 - Anything Goes #59 - Layers #39 Happy Birthday #73 Anything Goes #71 Distressed #108 Birthdays Distressing

Thank you for stopping by. I really love to read your comments and to visit you in return. Have a great week.

Believe in Fairies

Hello again and a big thank you to all of you that have left me your comments, each and every one is truly appreciated and a warm welcome to my new followers. Where did I suddenly get all these followers from!!?

This is my first post this year. I seem to have lost my mojo and have spent hours trawling through other peoples blogs, looking at some brilliant creations, I order new stuff to fulfil my inspiration and by the time it arrives, I'm back to my I'll start tomorrow phase! I've also lost a huge picture folder from my lap-top, I'd been having a few niggly problems with my storage device for a while and it finally decided to tidy itself up and has now permanently deleted all my pictures. Hopefully I should be able to salvage some (but not any recent ones) from an old unused pc we have upstairs somewhere!
I'm loving Krista Smiths Saturated Canary images and have ordered myself a few. I've had some printed out waiting to be coloured for a while now, and I just haven't even looked at colouring them! that's how far my mojo has gone.
There seems to be so many fabulous stamps out there at the moment, I'm really liking these Ching-Chou  Kuik stamps available from Crafts & Me. They are so lovely to stamp with. I have used one called Red Hearts. I coloured her with my Copics and Prisma color pencils. I finished her off with a sprinkle of my usual

I used some Paisley Road papers that I have had for over a year!! and card from my stash. I added black ribbon and a butterfly charm. The sentiment is from the LOTV Dreamy Days Sentiments set.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges: Sketch #64 #3 Fantasy Creatures Challenge #53 Loves Me, Loves me Not Something Old Challenge #72 Love is in the Air Challenge #202 Buttons and Bows Challenge #20 Anything Goes Have a Heart Love is in the Air #105 Valentines

I really am going to colour and create something with my Saturated Canary digis! Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Have a great week.
