This is such a lovely image which could be used for anniversaries, wedding , engagements and valentine.

Done my usual cloud effect background and colouring with promarkers and added a grass effect as well. As you can see I have used loads of dies, lace, pearls and ribbon. I've also used chipboard letters for "LOVE" and embossed them with white embossing powder and then added more pearls !!

Happy Hopper


Hope you're all having a fab weekend !! A bit of sunshine sure lifts the spirit......

You all know I am a Houise Mouse Designs fan,  all the images are super cute and I love cute !!  So its no surprise I have made this...

This sweetie is from a Happy Hopper set called "Special Day"

I've embossed my four squares of backing paper with swirls and then machine stitched the edges ( love my wonky stitching, its a new toy ) Made my flowers from dies and punches using the matching paper from a pack called  "Suger and Spice" by Dovecraft. Coloured my cute bunny with promarkers and pan pastels and finished off with a few small pearls !!






Ummmmmm "less is more" has no meaning for me !!

Still got the sunshine and it really does now feel like spring !! Trouble is the weeds and grass are growing like mad !!

Well another month has passed so time for another
Little Claire challenge !!

My cute LC image is called "Armsful of Wishes". On the second circle I have used the edge of the flowers to stamp a border round the sentiment which comes from the LC set called "Good Times".  Just love doing my cloud effect background. Used promarkers to colour with, embossed a swirl pattern on some of the circles, made a flower using a cheery lyn die and finished off all the edges with little black dots !!

Zentangled mushrooms


Sorry guys I forgot to show you what we made when Linsay Mason came to my local craft centre AMOM. It was  a wall hanging and this is mine. 
 
Very OTT...


We all got one of Lindsay's new Mushroom/ Fungi stamps which we all did our own zentangling in. Then played with paints, distress inks and guilding wax. I've also added some white thick embossing powder. I didn't punch the holes at the top for ribbon as I'm going to make mine into a book cover.


This is Lindsay's inspiration one for us.


Check out Lindsay's blog HERE !!  She always has a tale to tell and so many fab ideas and samples to show you !!
