Pretty Canary

Hello Blog friends how are you today? I have had a fairly busy day been out quite a bit we bought a car yesterday, its not new , its just as a run around, because DH have a Nissan Primstar and its a bit to big to drive all the time.

The card i have to share with you lovely peeps today is for my second cousins 21st birthday, I shared the a card that i made for mum to give to her yesterday and this is the card I’m

giving her. The image is from Saturated Canary and this is from the Faces Pack I coloured her with Copics used a Memory Box Chloe die and a Lilly of the Valley Grungy Message Stamp, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the border is a Marianne Design border die, I ran it through the die cutting machine twice to get the complete 8×8 border.

Summer Winds

Hello all how are you! its the 2nd day of June and it looks like Summer has left parts of cornwall lol, I won’t grumble, its possibly coming back tomorrow and its a little cooler for the fur kids. I don’t think i have ever shared a photo of the fur kids here i will have a look for a nice photo. Here is one i found of Dexy, Pandora and myself at Headley Wood caravan park in our van .IMG_20160423_155947

Now the reason for my post lol,…..the card Im sharing with good folk today i made for my mums Cancer Dr. Its a Saturated Canary image and she is called Summer Wind, I coloured her with Prisma Pencils and printed her on to Stonehenge 90lb paper, I like this paper because its tooth is quite fine but it still enables you to get two good layers of pencil down for the skin tone, clothing and hair, and because i have quite the heavy hand when to comes to colouring it blends quite quickly.so without further ado….


You may have noticed on the first photo I have used my Curlybear crafts watermark brush thats because i edited these photos the same time as doing my DT work for Whimsy Stamps lol. The name curlybear was made up from the pet names for my 2 Red Alaskan Malamutes.

Well have a lovely rest of the day peeps we are off to buy some decking and to try to get the garden looking good for the summer.

Take care friends TTFN …..Mwah….XOXO

Good Evening peeps i have a a commissioned card that i would like to share with you

good folk this evening, I made this for a Sweet 16, I just love this image from Saturated Canary

and its so appropriate for the youth of today, so many of them would be lost without their

Cell Phones.

The image is called Quick Text I found her a little challenging because of all of her gorgeous hair

but i think she turned out okay! So without further ado…….

Bottle Tags and Gob Stoppers

Hello my lovelies and how are you fine folk today?

I have that Friday feeling … its a Bank Holiday Weekend

and i can’t wait.

Are you peeps up to anything or going any where?

It’s also half term so I have the whole week off, so i will hopefully

get lots of crafting done.

On Monday DH and I are off for Puppy cuddles with some 4 Wk

old Alaskan Malamute balls of fluff…. so i can’t wait for that 🙂 x

I wanted to share with you patient peeps a Wine bottle tag and a Milk Carton

I made for some old

fashioned Gob Stopper’s, I found the Gob Stoppers at A Quarter of 

there are all of your old favourites in one place.

SC wine bottle tag 01

The bottle tag is 10 1/ “long and 4 1/2 ” wide for the Rosette I used a Tim Holtz Die

and the sentiment ribbon is a download from The Pink Petticoat,

the image is Saturated Canary’s Wine O Clock I

SC wine bottle tag 03

used this image to match the card i shared earlier this week.

For the box i used a Milk Carton template that i found on the web

GS box 01

for an A4 size card you score at 7, 14, 21,28 cm then whats left is the tab

to stick it all together, then you turn your card and score at 2, 5,10,4 cm

those measurements are from each score. I cut the aperture  using a

Spell Binders Die,  the rosette was made in the same way as the other

the only difference being that i used a tiny peg to attach it to the carton.
