Hi Peeps,  I hope you are enjoying the blog hop so far its now day 3 and its been a very
happy experience for me, I have thoroughly enjoyed myself,

Today I had fun playing with these adorable stamps, Autumn Fox Kit  By artist Crissy Armstrong &
SC Designs, Feather & Flourish.
 Autumn Fox Kit has been coloured this time using Copics, I also coloured the leaves in autumnal colours for this one, I wanted to show you that you could use Autumn Fox Kit, for Spring or Summer too, I guess you could even use it for Christmas cards if you kept the Fox white :).
 I used the Feather & Flourish stamps to make the backgrounds, with a mixture of distress inks and Brilliance Archival Pigment ink pads.

 I hope you will come along and join us for some fun now for day 3 of the bloghop.

A blast from the past...Mikey

Good morning blogging buds how has life been 
treating you, All good I hope!
 I would like to say a Happy 4th of July to 
my US blogging buds have a lovely holiday weekend.

Here is my blast from the past I must have bought these digi's 
about 5 years back,  I bought them from
Charmed Cards and Crafts
Its the Mikey Collection I used them a few times,
but never had the nerve to post them here, I guess its because
they weren't particularly great,
heres a card I made for a Teacher he kinda looks
like Mikey lol.  I think also that Mikey can be used
for the older gentleman too.



Have a fantastic weekend peeps and Thank you so much for stopping by 
Its means alot :) xx
Have fun see you all soon :) xx

The sky is on Fire

Hello my lovelies how are you all on this lovely Saturday
I 'm feeling much better for having a good nights sleep.
Its a beautiful morning here in Cornwall the sun is awake
but to accompany the sun, there is a cooling breeze
that makes a day quite perfect.

The card i'm sharing with you peeps this morning 

 I made using a digi  available from A Day for Daisies its called 
Braid in my Hair I coloured her with Copics 
but wanted to leave her CAS, the coloured 
background was created using Sennelier l'aquarelle 
watercolours.
 I tried to use colours that went well
with the pink in her top and the black of her, 
so I could get the best contrast, I finished the outer
side of the image with a TH Mahogany DI.


I hope you have a lovely weekend my friends,
Im off now to do my DT pieces and to get a couple of birthday 
card made for later this month. 

Thank you all so very much for popping in to see me
and for any inspiring comments that you may leave
It means a lot.....Mwah.....

Have fun & take care lovelies

Oh cheeky and Wipe Out


Good evening lovely peeps, its a glorious evening 
here in Cornwall the sun is warm and shining
 and i managed to get a 4mile walk in this morning.

I have a couple of male cards that i would very much 
like to share with you this evening,

The first is my F-I-L Fathers day card, I have loved this 
stamp for a long long time so it goes without saying 
that it found its way into my shopping basket :) 
You know what its like when you just cant wait for
 that thud of a stamp hitting the door mat, 
 as soon as it arrived i had to ink it up.
this is what i came up with.

I coloured this adorable Roberto's Rascals 

Funny Faces with Copics, then i made a frame 
with a couple of nestabilites then had them coming out 
of the frame slightly.
I would like to enter this into the following Challenges

Craft your Passion:Father Day For the Boys
Papertake Weekly: For the Boys


My second card is for a Teacher's birthday


he's really into surfing so i thought this image would be
appropriate its Mo Manning Surfer Dude
I coloured him with copics the I traced over the image 
using a sheet of cheap copy paper and cut a mask 
so i could use a floral stamp on the Surf board
just to make it look authentic. 


I would like to enter this in to the following challenges 
Crafty Catz: Inspired By a song Wipe Out 
PaperTake Weekly For the Boys
Craft Your Passion: Fathers Day : for the boys


Have a most enjoyable time peeps and thank you all so very much
for stopping by it means alot :) xx
