Spring Duck 1

After a lot of very cold, wet weather the sun has been shining for several days, and now it’s just like summer.  We had our first bbq of the year today and sat out till after 6.00pm – and hope to do the same tomorrow….!!

I’ve used a Bugaboo image – Spring Duck 1 – to make an Easter card for one of my grandsons.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and distressed parts of the duck with orange ink.  The frame is a stitched square die and the die cut sun is coloured with yellow DI.  The sentiment is computer generated, and embossed with clear embossing powder, and the twine is from my stash.

Sweetie Pie

It feels like it’s been raining forever – and it’s really cold too – so I’ve stayed inside and made some cards.  This image is Sweetie Pie from All Dressed Up – she is a real sweetie and I loved colouring her with Promarkers.  The papers are from Nitwits and I coloured the ribbon with a Distress Ink pad.  The flowers are from the Ribbon Girl and the leaves are die cut.

Festive Bears in Blue

I had intended to make several Christmas cards each month, but this is the first one I’ve made for a while.  I coloured the digi image  – Festive Bears from LOTV – with Promarkers, added Aleene’s Glitter Snow to the fur on their hats and cut around it with a stitched circle die.  The snow background is embossed with a cracked ice embossing folder and I added Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels along the top of it.  The snowflake border, from The Works,  is glittered with Stickles Frosted Lace.  The small sentiment tags are from LOTV and the ribbon, bells and gems are from my stash.

Pepe L’Souris – Grate Birthday

I find it hard to make male cards but I really enjoyed making this one.  I saw this image on another crafter’s card a couple of weeks ago and thought it would a good idea for my son in law’s birthday card – so thank you, Linda, for flagging it up.  It’s a Paper Shelter image – Pepe Souris, with 3 mice designs in the pack, but I choose to use this one on its own.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and fussy cut around it and the grater, which came from Clip Art.  The sentiment is computer generated.
