All Pure

For this inspiration from There She Goes I thought I would keep the lines clean & simple as well as make use of those wonderful colours.  I have been wanting to colour these Pure Innocence images for a wee while now & thought it would be a perfect time as it is my niece’s birthday very soon.

Happy New Home

Not sure if you have noticed but I have been a little off the radar lately.  I promise it’s been for a good reason, we recently sold & bought a new house.  So with Christmas, working full time shiftwork, fab family visiting, moving house & some wonderful friends over from the UK, things have been, in two words… flat out!  The BEST thing about ‘the move’ is that I now have a fabulous large workspace which is light & airy as opposed to my old house which was dark & moody (not so good for card making).  No no no, I don’t have much stuff… that is, I thought I didn’t… until I started to pack it up & move it!  (don’t tell my husband) all I have to do is set it up again…   I thought it appropriate that I share this card with you – they are quite funky houses, don’t you think?

Supplies;  Paper:  Bazzill Cardstock – Kraft, Two Peas in a Bucket – Home Is Where The Heart Is (Digital Download), Two Peas – This Year Grid Papers (Digital Download).  Images:  Two Peas – Home Sweet Home (Digital Stamps)  Accessories:  WRMK – Corner Chomper, Red ribbon, Red Glitter, Uniball – White Gel Pen, DST, Foam Dimensionals.

Glitterball Girl!

I thought I would just share a card that I have made for a wonderful friend of mine who is turning 40 (don’t look yet Jack!).  She just loves a ‘bit of Bling!’, and what could be more ‘blingful’ than a Glitterball in the spotlight!  This Sassy Studio  image was fun to colour although I did have to play with her hair as I wasn’t sure what colours to use to make a luscious redhead…   So here’s to you Jackie, have the most wonderful birthday ever!  xx   

 I have entered this into There She Goes – Create a Scene Challenge…  I kinda took it literally!

The Recovery Couch!

This is for a fellow blogger who is having an operation.   Linda is the one who encouraged me to start my own blog (…you can tell my husband it’s all her fault!).   Linda, I hope you’ll be in the best of health again soon and then you can spend your ‘recovering’ time making some more fabulous cards!

‘Tis the Season

Okay, so I wanted to try ‘feathering’ with Copics & what better place than on a bird!  There is a challenge at Copic Oz  which also includes a feathering tutorial.  I also thought I would create a card that I could enter into the current Caardvarks Holiday Die Cuts Challenge.  This is when I decided that I need to get me some fancy bauble die cuts…   but I had to settle with what I’ve got and went for the Nesties instead, but with a wreath twist.  Don’t ya just love Mo’s Images, they are just soooo much fun to colour!

A Not so Spooky Challenge.

TSG is having another Colour Challenge, and the colours scream Halloween, but I was thinking of something completely different… Obviously!  Bold, Bright & a Bow.  When I finished it I was wondering if it may have just been a little too bright?

Pawprints on your Heart


I have been meaning to make some pet sympathy cards for a while now,  I think they are a great idea and they are hard to find.  Of course I didn’t make them until today when I needed one for a work friend.  Her cat has been very sick recently and finally lost her battle.  I tried to make this card a little cheerful, this digital stamp is just too cute & I hope it makes her smile (my cat is getting lots of cuddles today…. much to her disgust).

Sweetheart Flower

So I wasn’t particularly happy with my entry to the Scrapbook Boutique Colour Challenge.  I thought I could do better.  This is my second attempt.  Not quite so pastelly (not sure if there is such a word),  I think it’s better.  Hope you like it!  Of course I made 2 versions, this also seems to be my current trend, my theory being that I have already made a mess, so why not make the most of it.  Here is where you can find this digital download Isabella’s Sketchbook (thanks Marion).
