Darrell's birthday cards

Thought I'd share the cards I made hubby for his birthday lol! The boy is a stamped image from Jo, coloured with prismas, papers, gems & peel offs all from stash. the wolf is a stamp I've had for ages but never found anything really to do with it lol! stamped it onto cream textured card with walnut stain distress ink, then cut into a circle, used backings and ribbons from stash and stamped a sentiment from one of a see d's set :-)

my new whiff of joy stamp :-)

Isn't Lizzie just the sweetest little girl lol! I absolutely love this stamp - just can't believe that 'cos of all the college work I had to do she's been sat here nearly 2 WEEKS without me using her!!!! How bad is that! I really enjoyed making these, it was so nice to be able to sit and do some crafting without having to stress over assignments - have to make the most of a limited amount of 'me' time

All images are coloured with prismas, white sakura souffle, glitter glue and sakura stardusts for the added sparkles - though they don't show up so well on the scan! Papers on the blue cards are docrafts (I think) and the red one is a one I downloaded and found sat on the comp - can't remember where its from but think its one of the Summer Driggs kits, but wouldn't swear it under oath lol. Ribbons and embellishments from my stash

good news :-)

been feeling the pressure recently - a lot lol! been really stressed with all the college work and finances etc but got a little bit of good news today for a change! My eldest daughter Hazel who's 11 sent an application in to Britain's Got Talent and she just got a letter this morning telling her she has an audition on 26th November - not sure how well she'll do or how far she'll get as the competition will be tough - but its always been her dream she lives to sing so here's hoping lol!!!!!

a few cards I made last night

All these are with some of the images Jo sent me, the little girls are sweet ebony images, these stamps are definitely going on my 'after christmas' list. The little dragon is called Daphne and is from Lilac Lemon Designs - I love Beckie's stamps they're gorgeous, for anyone who hasn't seen them go over to Lilac Lemon and take a look.
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

sweet ebony

I love this one, its one of my favourite images :-) I'm not fortunate enough to have been able to buy the stamps yet, but Jo sent me some gorgeous stamped images and this was in with them - I couldn't wait to get colouring, so here's the first card I made. Coloured with prismas and whsmith blendables, backing papers are from my stash and the little flowers are punched from the backing papers with a little gem in the centre for a bit of sparkle :-) I'm really pleased with this one - its one of the best I've done for a while
