Happy Halloween


Since it's Halloween tomorrow I thought I would do a Halloween themed card. 

Now I don't have many Halloween images, in fact this is the only Halloween image that I own and I have to thank Lorraine Bailey for bringing it to my attention.  I first saw it on her blog (Mrs B's Blog) a few week's ago and fell in love with it - isn't it just so cute.   

The image is from Di's Digital Downloads and it's called Mummy Bear.  I've coloured the image with Copic pens.  The papers are "Can I be Frank" by Nitwits. 

I've kept the embellishments very minimal - just some ribbon and pearls from my craft stash.  The three little pumpkins are part of the paper kit.  I just re-sized them and cut them out.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using "Tab 1" die by Whimsy.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Di's Digi Designs Challenge : Anything Halloween

Snowy & Hedgy

Hello there

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I had a fab one.  My hubby and son had tickets for the Manchester City v Swansea Football match on Saturday.  As the match was in Manchester he suggested that on the way down we could stop off in Leeds and I could visit the Lili of the Valley shop.  Well I took that offer up in a flash, particularly as they were having an Open Day. 

The shop was fab - full of lovely goodies and I treated myself to one or two purchases - well I couldn't resit could I!

Anyway enough of my waffling onto my card which features a Penny Black image "Snowy & Hedgy".  I've coloured the image with Copic pens and added fur and glitter.

Bella on Bauble

Hi there

Hope you're having a good day.  Me not so much.  Whilst doing this post I am sitting waiting for a plumber.  Water has started dripping through our kitchen ceiling (could be coming from the bathroom upstairs).  Fortunately I have the day of work today or goodness knows what mess we would have come into tonight!

Anyway onto today's card. 

The inspiration for this card has been taken from the Winter Wonderland Challenge.  Their theme this week is a photo inspiration (see here) and I've used the colour, the bauble and the white christmas tree.

The image is from Wild Rose Studio and has been coloured with Copic markers.  The stars on the bauble have been glittered and for the fur on Bella's hat I've used glossy accents and "hairy" glitter to give it some definition.
