Pink fairy

Hello lovely people,

I have had such a great weekend filled with lots of time to craft and finishing up with coffee and cakes with friends this afternoon – just lovely!

Earlier this morning I decided to whip up (hmm, Dr Hubby might not agree with the use of the term ‘whip up’ but never mind!) a card for a few challenges and I used the sketch over at The Deconstructed Sketch as my layout inspiration;

Here is what I came up with;

I have distressed the edges of the DP a little with sandpaper and a smidge of TH Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap then added the stitching.

OK, you may have noticed that I was slightly naughty and left off the bow but I just couldn’t make it look right.  Plus, if I faffed around with it any longer when we were supposed to be leaving for the aforementioned afternoon tea then Dr Hubby might have started divorce proceedings…

I used a sweet Tiddly Inks image called Wryn – Fairy Friends and coloured it with Copics.

Grow a little love

Hello lovely people,

Yes, it is the weekend again and I can’t believe it is nearly Valentine’s Day!  The challenge at Totally Gorjuss this week fits in with this perfectly as it is ‘Love’ and we are sponsored by Crafters Companion who will give one lucky person £10 to spend online 🙂

I have used another Tiddly Inks image; this time it is Wryn – Grow a Little Love and I think she is just adorable.  I have layered up the panels without my usual Kraft card border except round the image and coloured Wryn with ProMarkers/Flexmarkers.  I have kept the layout simple so it would be suitable for my lovely hubby 🙂  I hope he doesn’t mind a couple of pearls though!

Wryn love

Fairy nice

Hello lovely people,

Unbelievably this is my second card of the day so if you are looking for my Totally Gorjuss GDT card then scroll on down…

When I saw the theme for the Tiddly Inks challenge this week it was the perfect excuse to get another one of their gorgeous digistamps and I have picked Wryn – Fairy Friends; isn’t she just the cutest?  I have coloured her with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and just added a tiny bit of TH Frayed Burlap ink round the edges of the DP panels.
