Happy Ever After!

Yes, this week we are celebrating Weddings. I've used a photo from my mum and dad's wedding day and altered it somewhat.... starting with attaching bobble heads ~ always gives a fun look to the postcard!

You can't really tell from the scan but I stamped the stone floor and church, cut out leaves and attached them to the church. Used watercolours for the backgrounds and attached the couple image on top after colouring the flowers red.

Walk with Me

Here's my ATC for CAC this week, theme is boys.

Stand Proud

This week on Theme Thursday the theme is vintage. Love this image of a young Queen Victoria so I've used her on an ATC.

This Looks Easy

I've made this big tag for this week's crowabout on Flickr. I've been wanting to make a large tag for ages and also make something just for the heck of it so two birds .... equals

I'm entering this for theme thursdays prompt of girls

Love these Paints

I got these paints for Christmas and I've only just had chance to have a play with them! They are fab, I love using them along with the credit card technique. Gorgeously bright colours!

Can't wait to make something with these luscious backgrounds.

Happy Easter

I've had such a busy week... I didn't even get a chance to make anything for last week's SPA! But I've made two postcards to celebrate the Easter weekend!

Thanks for looking

I'm Late! I'm Late!

On theme thursday this week the theme is ANIMAL Here's a tag I made for a monthly swap I do with two lovely ladies and here's what I came up with for a 'distressed' tag. That had me stumped until I came across some old backgrounds I had made many moons ago when I first got myself some distress inks!

I received this mysterious note this morning .....

Eventually slightly later than 9.30am I was allowed to enter the Mother's Day Zone and to my delightful surprise this was waiting for me!

Gorgeously gorgeous-ness in Lily's Twilight picture, a felted strawberry purse and a traditional pooh bear with a tin to match

Fantastic day and PizzaHut for tea... woohoo! Thanks Girlies!

(if you look closely you can see paint splashes over the table cloth and glimmermist down the wall next to the girls! lol)

Happy Mother's Day

In the UK it's mothers day so on SPA we are celebrating mummies. Here's my card for SPA

Here's the card I made for my mum.... it's not my usual style ~ I actually made this at a craft day I went to a few weeks ago. It was a fun day and I made some stuff I wouldn't normally do.
Thanks for looking

I'm super late with this entry to Take A Word's theme this week... but here it is anyway!
