Tea Time


I made this special easel on top of a box for the house mouse use dies challenge.
I used the tea time with hopper image, coloured with spectrum noirs.
The papers came from a paper pad from The works. I also die cut my flowers from the same papers.
I added a sentiment which says join me for a cuppa.
I created the box myself to add some teabags.

Fortune Teller


I have another card featuring a paper shelter image, this time it's the fortune teller!
I'd love to visit a fortune teller so this image definitely appealed to me.
I coloured the image with spectrum noirs and copics. The papers are prima marketing moon child.
I added lace, a doily, pearls, and a sentiment to finish.


Have Fun!

I made a card using the fun Have fun in the sun from The Paper Shelter!
I coloured my image with promarkers and copics. The papers came from a paper pad from The Works, matted on white. I used a die cut from The Works to create the pink seaweed style sprig and added a prima flower and some ribbon to finish.

Bronte wants it now!


My final Bella and Bronte card, using the same papers as one of the others I made. I didn't realize at the time!
I coloured my image with promarkers.
I kept the card quite simple adding a large bow, buttons and dew drops. I finished with a stamping bella sentiment.

Bella and Bronte: Dunno


I'm back with another Bella and Bronte card, this time the image, I dunno.
I created an easle, sticking to a pink and green colour combo. I added plenty of flowers, a doily, lace, ribbon and a sentiment.


Bella and Bronte; let's celebrate!


I've had a lot of fun using Mo Manning images over the last few weeks. I've had a bit of a break from them and lost a lot due to our computer getting a virus and wiping everything a few years ago which meant I lost most of my images and only just rediscovered them. I'm so glad the challenge started back up again and couldn't wait to join in again.

I used my favourite characters, Bella and Bronte to create this easle. I used floral papers from The works and added a die cut doily, flowers, die cut swirls, a cupcake charm and a sentiment to finish. 

I also have some exciting news! I've started a new blog dedicated to needlefelting, another craft I enjoy.

Creative inspirations: seasonal


This month's challenge at Creative inspirations is seasonal.
You can choose any season, just remember to tell us which!
For my card i went for summer, which I think is my favourite. I do like the nicer weather and being able to sit outside with the dogs.
I used The paper boutique range butterfly ballet for my card and created a twisted easel. I used one of the 5x5 toppers and added lace and a die cut butterfly to embellish.
