Relaxing and Crafting

Good evening all,

I hope those of you in the UK have had a good Bank Holiday weekend. Today I have a ‘general’ card made for my stash of cards for those emergencies that pop up from time to time.

And here is a peak at the inside

The image is Oli from Teddy Bo digital stamps which I don’t think exist on the internet anymore. He is coloured with Promarkers.

The papers are from Michelle Roos ‘Men Only’ set – here . I just love the subtle colours in this set which can be used for either sex.

The sentiment was printed on a ticket from the same set.

The pearls are from my stash and the die cut ‘with love’ is from Joanna Sheen’s signature dies collection.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Incy Wincy – All or Nothing (lots of or no layers)

Close to home

Good evening all,
As you can see I am still in crafting mode and enjoying working on the different projects I have simmering away at the moment. I was looking through the Rick St Dennis stamps – here, and saw this stamp. It is so like our house in the morning that I had to buy her and colour her up.

I have kept the embellishments to a minimum on this card because the papers are divine. They are part of a digital set called ‘Blush Papers’ by Venessa Fenton and were from Design house Digital which sadly is no longer in business.
I have coloured the image with Promarkers.
The Ribbon is from my stash and the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts.

I have finished the inside to match the front.
