Birthday Fishes

Hello to you all, hope you had a lovely Easter weekend....it went far too quickly for my liking but it is only a couple of weeks and then we have another long Bank Holiday weekend :)))

I managed a little bit more crafting over the weekend and I am trying to use some of my stash that has been long neglected.


Before I get onto my card there a couple of things to remind you of .....you still have another week to join in at Ladybug Crafts Ink where the theme is White on White.

Secondly there is a DT call over at Winter Wonderland - if you want to get ahead with your Christmas cards then here is the perfect opportunity.  You have until the 26th April to apply :)


So onto my card  - image was from Pollycraft before the doors were sadly closed on the shop by the lovely Paula :(

So here is my card using the image called Nipper.


Coloured with Polychromo pencils.
I have had quite a number of questions regarding my colouring and what I use.  Well after a lot of practising I have found that the white plain card stock 250 gsm from Papermill Direct gives a great finished result.  I then have also found that the Derwent blending stumps are great as they are quite soft and makes blending a lot easier.  I then use either Sansador or Zest it to blend the pencils.   Hope that helps :))

Paper - Echo Park
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat
Twine - American Crafts

Cute Card Thursday - Splish Splash - I interpreted it as being by the seaside but please delete if not appropriate.

Have a good day.

Friends - Puppy Love

Blimey...here again with another card, I told you I was trying to get back into blogging more :)

I hope you are not getting bored though with all my CAS style cards but I can't seem to make anything else.  What will I do with all my crafty stash that is sitting in my craft room doing nothing?    I seem to just keep making the same shape too so here is my latest card using the super cute Puppy Love stamp set from There She Goes

The image is coloured with Polychromo pencils and die cut with stitched square die from Lil Inker.
The embossing folder is X Cut called Quilting
Ribbon from stash


Hope you can join us for the challenge ......

We have two sponsors this week
and this is the fab prize they offer



which will give a stamp at winner's choice.

Friends Furever

Good morning,
Looks like we are in for another beautiful sunny day here in the UK :)

I am trying to blog a bit more regularly ........ not sure how long that will last though!

So today I have another CAS card using There She Goes Clear Stamp from the Puppy Love Collection set.  I have had this set for a long time and never really used it but I have already made 3 cards from the stamp set so that is good news.
  I am trying to go back and use some stamps that haven't seen the light of day and re use some of the older ones.  It is amazing to see how different they look now I am colouring using pencils and hope to do a few comparison posts using the same image that I coloured a few years ago and then show the difference now.

Anyway here is my card.....

Coloured with Polychromo pencils
Die cut using stitched circle die
Sentiment from Puppy Love Collection
Twine from stash

Well better get some work done now!
Have a great day.

Thanks to all my loyal followers who keep commenting on my posts....I will try harder to visit you all over the next few days....not enough hours in the day :(  I do appreciate your comments and the time you take to visit :)
