Friends For Ever

Afternoon peeps. I have one eye on the tele in my craft room watching "THE WEDDING" and the other on my keyboard. Didn't she look gorgeous? I have been in tears on and off all morning.





For my card today I have used a Robyn's Fetish digi image "Friends for Ever" The colouring medium is Promarkers. The background has been distressed with "Bundled Sage" & "Tumbled Glass" DI. It has been cut & mounted using "Squares" S4-006 & "Classic Scalloped Squares Large" S4-127 by Spellbinders. The backing papers are also by Robyn's Fetish and are from a download set of papers "CIS paper6" and "CIS paper8". The "Friends for Ever" sentiment is computer generated. The flowers have been punched using Nellie Snellen punches. The gems in the centre are from my stash.

Christmas Candle

Afternoon peeps. Don't faint after not being on here for a week posting I am now on twice in two days!!! The sun has been beating down today. I hope you have all enjoyed your Good Friday. The pond is finished and the fish look very happy. Lots of plants have been bought for the pond along with two large raised planters and two lovely features for the garden. Also a three wheel bike with two baskets for flowers and a lovely fairy. I will wait for the plants for the raised planters and baskets as I have been caught like that others years and we had a hard frost. Lol!!! The garden looks a bit of a mess where we have stored the dirty we have been digging out, so we are yet to have a grand clear up.




After talking about the lovely weather I have made a Christmas card today. Lol!!! The image is "Christmas Candle" from L.O.T.V. The colouring medium is Promarkers. The fur on the hat and ends of the scarf have been glittered with Art Institute 85 Crystal glitter. The snow has been produced using Twinklets Diamond Dust. The two decorative corners have been cut using a Cuttlebug die. The sentiment has been embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The dp is "Wish Upon" P295 Sparkle by Kaiser Craft. The ribbon and gems are from my stash.

Shower Girl

Afternoon peeps. Sorry I haven't been around much this week but I have been on call for my OH who is putting in a larger pond!! Monday I was busy with shopping and Hydro sessions at the hospital. Yesterday and today I have been in and out to the garden helping with what I can. Being as I am partly disabled there is alot I can not do or have the strength to do to help. In between I have managed to do one card and visit and leave as many comments on your cards, I promise I will catch up with that eventually. My dear photographer in between building his pond has had difficulty trying to get a decent picture of my card. Lol!!! It is a shame as the flowers & gems are not showing up very well. It looks lovely in real life. Obviously this is made for my friend Linda's birthday who I do disabled swimming with, so I thought this was very apt for her. The digi image is "Shower Girl" from Karen's Doodles. The colouring medium is Promarkers. The circle has been cut using "Lacey Circles" S4-293 by Spellbinders. The ribbon trim has been cut with a Martha Stewart punch. The shower puddle has been glittered using 85 Crystal glitter from Art Institute. The dp's/gem's/flowers/ribbon are all from my stash.
