Suzi with Bunny

Hello everyone and I hope you have had a good week and an even better weekend.  Our week started off a little on the quiet side with my daughter away on her first school residential trip.  The house was quiet in fact too quiet for my liking but hey she's back now and she's one very happy bunny, tired but excited about all the things she got to do.  Normal household resumes now - noise and mayhem just as it should be!!!

Okay time to share with you my card which I have made for my Dies to Die For dt card this week and I've been meaning to share this with you for a few days now.  I decided to play with a Wee Stamp and this one is 'Suzi with Bunny' and she's such a cutie pie.  I took my colour inspiration as normal from my papers and I used the gorgeous Bo Bunny 'Prairie Chic' papers which are really pretty folks and are actually on offer over in the store at the moment too.

My usual close up of the image for you.  She is just beautiful and delightful to colour peeps.

Copics List

Face/Body:  E000, E11, E13, R20

Okay ta-ta for now peeps.  Take care and happy crafting.

What does the fox say??!!??

....well my fox says, yay it's Friday and time for a bit of Whimsy lovin!!!

Hello my lovelies I hope you are all well and looking forward to your weekend.  My little girl is going on her first school residential on Monday and I know it's only for a few days but still it's a big thing for both her and me so we are going out Saturday to get a few things and make it a bit special.

Okay so time for me to share a card with you using Whimsy's 'Autumn Fox kit' image.  Autumn is my most favourite season of all so I had a great time colouring up this little fella.  Coloured with my copics as usual and I seemed to have mislaid the list of markers I used but I do remember it was mainly E11, E13, E15.  I used 'Pumpkin Sentiments' too and cut it out using the matching 'Pumpkin die'.  

Medium:  copics
Papers:  My Mind's Eye 'Bloom and Grow'

Pion Design - My Precious Daughter

Hello my lovelies hope you are all okay and having a good week.  Just realised I hadn't shared my dt card for Dies to Die For so whilst I have a minute I thought I would just pop it on now.

So as my title suggests I have played with those fab Pion Design My Precious Daughter papers and images again.  Its been a couple of weeks since I'd made anything with them and couldn't hold out any longer.  So here is what I made:-

Li'l Montana

Good evening peeps I hope you are all having a fabby week so far.  We're slowly returning to the normal school routine here it's hard getting back into the swing of it all but the kiddies are enjoying their new classes which is always a huge relief.  

Anyway, I'm popping in tonight to share with you a card I've made using some goodies from Dies to Die For.  I've used some really pretty papers from Authentique called 'Flourish' and decided to colour up an older Whimsy image called 'Li'l Montana' as she's so cute and adorable.

Take care folks.

Sweet Blossom

Hello folks, how are you all?  We've had back to school madness here the past few days with getting everything ready for the kiddiewinkles going back today.  The house feels a little sad and quiet without them but to be honest they were so ready to go back.

Anyway, I'm just popping in to share my Dies to Die For make and I was feeling all pink and girly when I made this one which may have had something to do with the most adorable Bo Bunny 'Isabella' papers.  Ooh these are so pretty and very stroke'able I so love their colour palette which is how I ended up with my pink and grey colour scheme.  Anyway, I chose a Wee Stamps image called 'Sweet Blossom' to play with from Whimsy Stamps and she still remains one of my all time faves she's just so sweet and adorable.  I haven't over embellished my card in fact I've kept it quite simple as I wanted the image to be the main focal point so only added a little ribbon and pearls and she was finished.  

The usual close up for you.  I used a lighter ink to stamp with for a change as I thought it would work better with the colour scheme.

It's been a little while since I entered a few challenges so I thought it was about time I put that right and would like to enter the following:-

Papertake Weekly  -  anything goes

Okay that's it from me today.  Now the kiddies are back at school I am hoping things will settle down here a little as my crafty time has been erratic and I have missed it.

Take care.
