Live~Laugh~Love~Bark~Meow!

Hi Everyone!

I have been up in my shed for most of the day with the dogs.. the sun is shining and it’s a lovely day to be sitting crafting outside.

I made a wee card and envelope, which I can share with you now..the other stuff is work in progress and not ready yet 😉

I have gone for a natural look with this card.. which is 4″ x 4″

I used following materials:-

  • Daler & Rowney Watercolour Card for the card base & top layer
  • Kraft cardstock
  • Natural Mulberry Paper (with bits in it)
  • Deep Red Stamp “Live,Laugh, Love,Bark,Meow”
  • Hero Arts Cup o’ Joe Shaddow Ink
  • Double Sided Tape

Loving Life with a wee bit Twinkle

Hi everyone!…

I have come to the conclusion that with the best will in the world I am not going to be able to blog every day… but I will do my very best to 🙂

Wee Rhona Sprocker  has been ill and I have had literally no sleep for the last two days, thankfully she is better this evening, so I am hoping everything will return to normal!

So to make up for the lack of a post yesterday, I made 2 cards tonight…

One card uses one of the pre-made wee star embelishment’s made the other week, and the other one uses a wee 2″x 2″ project life piece..

  • Daler & Rowney Watercolour card
  • Pink Layer is a scrap off my desk
  • Simple Stories 2×2 Loving Life piece
  • Sequins
  • Prima Distress Tool
  • Double Sided Tape & Foam Tape

Just Breathe…

Hi everyone…

I nearly missed making a card tonight…

It was such a lovely evening, after dinner we took the dogs out on a huge big walk and didn’t get home till after 9pm..

So tonight’s card is another quickie.. using one of the star embelishments that I made last week 🙂 I have to say they are coming in handy!  I know I have only made 2 lots of embelishments and I need to make some more to build up a wee stock.. this week hopefully.

Sometimes we need to sit down and just breathe, and this was my inspiration for tonight’s card.  We lead such a busy life these days that we sometimes forget to sit down for 5 minutes and relax

Just Breathe

supplies list :-

  • Daler & Rowney Watercolour card for the card base ( I love the thickness of it)
  • Cream cardstock
  • Lil Inker Designs stitched square dies
  • Tim Holtz Self adhesive words.. small talk

  • Light Green Polka Dot Patterned Paper
