You quack me up!

Hello. My card today features a new stamp set by SugarPea Designs called Quackers. I do love a 'punny' sentiment. Once again I used my Inktense pencils to colour.

So, the Christmas crafty box has been dug out the cupboard - a magazine assignment popped into my in-box! After all, it's only 31 weeks till the big day!!

I'm glad we're friends

Hello. I know, posting two days in a row! What have they done with the real Liz? So this one features stamps from the Snuggle Bunnies set by My Favourite Things. The papers are 'meadow sweet' from Craft Asylum.

I used Inktense watercolour  pencils to colour - still my favourites after all this time!

Let the beauty we love...

Hello. I've missed the last few Unity Facebook challenges but when I saw this week was 'butterflies' I had to join in. Butterflies are one of me favourite things on a card. This butterfly is from the May 2014 kit of the month. It's a real modern take on a butterfly!

I'm a bit peeved tho'. In real life the butterflies are a lovely lilac and soft green colour. But try as I might - daylight on the window ledge, lightbox, adjusting the angle - they look blue! You'll just need to take my word for it!!

Yesterday I was at the beauty salon for a haircut - I also got my mousy brown/white/grey hair coloured. I am now lovely shades of blonde (and looking to have more fun!) It's taking a bit of getting used to but hubby says I'm very cute - bless him. I've never had my hair coloured before, quite the experience, and who knew there was another use for tin foil!!

Hello. So summer seems to have arrived. Although maybe I shouldn't speak too soon as it is decidedly chillier today! Anyway, I have a bright, happy card to share. I treated myself to some of the new MFT goodies from this month's release. These stamps are from the 'Magical Unicorns' set. I also got the 'Snuggle Bunnies' set - but more of that another day!

Magazine News

Hello. Thought I would let you know about the cards I have in this month's Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine. They are in the cardmakers challenge section and I got to use some cool Hot Off The Press templates.

This month's free gift is a gorgeous stamp and die set by Altenew called 'build-a-rose. 
A real must have!
