Some Sunshine

Morning all, happy April!  After the recent stresses and strains, and also the yucky weather, of the last few days I thought it was about time I brought some sunshine to my blog.

First of all, a belated but nonetheless big welcome to my four most recent followers, lovely to see you all, and I hope to be able to keep up with you!

Right then, some sunshine for you:


So, this gorgeous little madam is a Spring Medley stamp from A Random Fan / Sherri T Designs
I have painted her in my brightest Distress Inks (ReInkers) and her hair is Polychromos Pencils
Papers are from the leftovers box but I think the stripes are Little Sizzlets (that dates them!)
Wild Rose Studio corner die
Clearly Besotted sentiment
Custom sized card base

Thanks for popping over, and I hope to see you soon.

Hugs to all

What's New Pussy Cat?

Afternoon all, sorry it is a late posting today!  We were late getting back from the Palm Sunday service this morning, and then settled down with a bacon butty to watch the Malaysian Grand Prix.  For a change it was a dry race, but that was because all the wind and rain was over here, what an afternoon, we've had gales, thunder, rain and hailstones.  Happy Spring!

Anyhoo, the challenge at Allsorts is Feature A Creature, and I'm not one to turn down that sort of invitation.



So it's another Clearly Besotted creation using the Wild Thing stamp set and matching die, the sentiment is included with the stamps
Paper is a scrap of Basic Grey Lime Rickey (as I thought it looked jungley)
Die-Namics Rounded Corner Stitched Rectangle die
Custom sized card base

I was "inspired" by a Henri Rousseau painting in the National Gallery called
Tiger In A Tropical Storm (or, Surprised)


Hope your weekend has been a happy one.
Hugs

Spring Blossom

Morning all.  Hope you are ok.  I confess to only having just got dressed, but in my defence I was up early to watch the F1 qualifying for tomorrow's Malaysian GP.  Nothing quite like a flump about in your dressing gown on a Saturday morning.

Anyhoo, earlier in the week I posted two cards I made using the same stamp.  Different stamp this time but still two of them.


It's another CC Designs stamp and this one is Pollycraft: Blossom.
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Polychromos Pencils
Papers are all Nitwits
Stitched die is DieNamics Rounded Corner Rectangles set
Custom sized card base

Hugs to all
