'Blowing Hearts'

Hello everyone, how are you all doing today, we are good here not really up to that much just a quiet day at home.  Hubby is watching footy results, I haven't seen my son for an hour he's holed himself up in his room I'm ever hopeful that he will be doing his homework without the usual reminders and nagging but I doubt it very much my guess is he's playing some game on his laptop and will only appear for sustenance and my little girl is currently sat at the dining room table making a fairy scene in a shoebox having let her loose with a box of my crafting goodies (I shall never see those again!!).  So whilst everyone else is occupied I thought I would jump on here and share my latest card with you.

So I am well and truly ahead of myself and have made one of my mother's day cards that I need and I have stamped up a beautiful Elisabeth Bell image which I have had for a few years now and has always been a favourite of mine.  I have her in rubber but I think she has recently been released in digi HERE and trust me she is adorable and would be useful for so many occasions.  I used a sheet of beautiful Bildmalarna paper called 'Picnick - Lots of Flowers' and just utilised both sides for my card following the fabby sketch over at The Sketchy Challenges.

Medium:  copics
Papers:  Bildmalarna 'Picnick - Lots of flowers'
Dies:  Spellbinders 'Romantic Rectangles', Nellies Multiframes 'Heart', Cuttlebug 'Heart #2'

A nice close up of the image, gorgeous isn't she.

'Together Anywhere'

Hello my lovelies and a very happy Sunday to you all.

Gosh it's been a few days since I was able to share anything with you but it's been a tad on the busy side at home these past few days/weeks but I'm really pleased I managed to sneak on and share my Dies to Dies For dt card with you for today.

I have a sweet little card to show you which I have made using an adorable image from The Greeting Farm 'Together Anywhere' rubber stamp set and my sentiment is also part of the set.  I teamed her up with some beautiful designer papers from My Mind's Eye Record It called 'Charmed' and coloured her up using copics to compliment the papers.  I kept it fairly simple by following a fabby sketch which I'll link below and just adding a few flowers and some leaves cut using Die-namics 'Royal Leaves' die set.
