Thanks for stopping by. Last week I thought I had linked up at the Stamping Ground nice and early in the morning only to find later on in the evening that I hadn't! So did a late link at about 10.30pm! Let's hope I'm more successful this week and manage to press the right buttons.
Well... on my workdesk this week....
Firstly are the three cards. My Mum asked me to make a card for her to give to her sister who is 80 in June. I made one and then thought what if she doesn't like it? and went on to make two more so that she can choose. They are all different.
This one I used my Inkylicious hedgerow stamps which I love and used three different colours of DIs to stamp the images. I also stamped the images in white on the pink background paper. This idea was from the new issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine which I bought the other day. The free gift in the mag was some gorgeous Hunkydory floral toppers and so I used one to make the next card.
I think Mum might choose this one!!
For this last one I printed out the cute mouse and poppy image from my House Mouse CD. This was hubby's favourite but I thought it was a bit reminiscent of remembrance day. Hmmm!?
On my desk you will also see a new Impression Obsession christmas stamp (no.... I didn't really type the C word did I? I haven't had my summer hols yet!) that my friend Ali H bought me for my birthday. I just thought I would practise colouring it in and searched the I.O. web site for inspiration.
I'm not sure I've got it quite right on this first go. I might need to invest in a couple of new Pro markers colours... Hmmm...
Well... that's all my crafty bits for this week. I'll leave you with two photos which I took on Sunday when Hubby and I went for a walk with Maddie our labrador. If you have a bluebell wood near you... do go and see them.
Have a happy week
