All backing papers and embellishments are from my stash :-) All of them are coloured with a combination of prismacolors and whsmiths blendables (great pencils for anyone on a budget!) The clouds and hi-lites on Daphne Dragon are coloured with white sakura souffle - I love the effect those pens give, adds a bit of depth and texture lol

well, it seems to be a heck of a long time since I made a 'stamped' card thats not coloured.... so was a little out of practise and not sure how this one would turn out. I bought the stamp from Mandy who's on a forum with me - her online store Sparklybits is like aladdin's cave lol - there's so much to choose from, prices are great and delivery is so fast!
I stamped the image onto plain white cardstock with black stazon, matted and layered black & white circles, edged with silver peeloffs, mounted onto black - didn't have a matching backing so stamped the tree randomly in black and silver onto white paper and used to back - finished the whole thing off with some peeloffs and crystal type stars - then covered the tree with 3d glaze which gives it an enamelled effect

The image is one I bought from ebay a while ago, sentiment was a freebie in with the images - coloured with prismas, papers are papermania simply elegant and the crochet flowers are some my mum made

Had my birthday yesterday and hubby hadn't a clue what to buy me - so he's ordered me some prismas wooohooo and is taking me out shopping today to buy something - only now I can't think of anything I want so will just have to browse and spend hehe
Maybe I'll have something to show in the next day or 2 if I'm lucky :-) I've certainly been enjoying blog hopping and seeing everyone's wonderful creations - definitely not stuck for ideas - just time!!

Over on SBS 16 Sonja organised a secret sister swap for us.... the idea was to send goodies and something you made to your partner. I just received mine and look at the great things I got :-) Stickers, backing papers (a set I've been promising myself for a while and never got round to buying them!) ribbon, glitter, a dreamcatcher, and not to be missed out a SUGAR NELL STAMP which I've wanted for soooooo long :-):-) Then of course there's a beautifully decorated domino with a cute kitty on it and a fabulous handmade notebook.
you should see me... I'm grinning like an idiot lolI'm sooooo thrilled, can't wait to play with them all
My secret sister didn't put her name on the package but with a bit of detective work (blog hopping and postcode tracing lol) I think I figured out who sent it hehe and I want to say a HUGE thank you - its absolutely stunning, I'm thrilled with what you chose for me and the beautiful book and domino you made too. I'm a very very happy bunny - its like my birthday and christmas all rolled into one - but better :-) I also want to say tank you to sonja for taking the time to organise the swap

Well, it took a while but finally got there!! Decided that rather than the usual flowers/chocolates which last 5 minutes I'd go for something they could keep!!! Ended up having to give the teaching assistants a handmade card and a promise of their baskets after the hols as only just managed to get these done in time to take to school - in fact one went with wet glitter glue on hehe!! But they were well received, teachers seemed thrilled with them which is all that matters
Think it would have been better going to school with a jumbo box of tissues - Hazel is devastated as she's finished primary school now and is off to high school in september. She's looking forward to it and is dead excited, but there's only 6 from her primary transferring to the high school she got accepted into as its not a local one, so she's going to lose touch with most of her friends she's known from being 5 poor thing!!! But she wanted to go to a 'better' school lolol she'll soon make new friends!

Also I'd like to know how to 'link' properly to other blogs, so instead of putting in a full email I can just put maybe a name and it highlights and links straight to the blog
Would be great if someone could explain how to do this cos I'm hopeless with the technical stuff
