The Paper Shelter had some new stamps ,so I thought I would give this one a colourup. Mind you after two hours of colouring, and almost finished apart from the dog, I stuffed it up and had to start again. Here is the finished product.

I just love these colours. I love to experiment with different colour combo's. She is done with copic markers.

The frame is spellbinders,the lovely border die is from Noor Design.
All flowers except the big one is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The sentiments are from Whimsy small postage stamps and die. 

I have drawn some spots with the copic on the background. 

Colours used were.....

YR 20,21,23,24 and E15
The greens were BG 57,53,11 49. 

The beautiful paper was one I had in my stash from Kaisercraft.
Must see if I can get some more of this.

Thankyou for visiting my Blog.

Till next time , keep crafting !!! xxx

I got a call from a lady who had purchased a card of mine at the market, and she needed an urgent birthday card for her Granddaughter. So this is what I came up with . It is a new digi stamp from Scrappers Delights. They have some lovely stamps, you should go have a look see.!! You can find them here.

I hope she likes it !!!


Time for another Whimsy Stamp. Done by Elizabeth Bell. She is called " Little Sweet Tweeter " and you can find her here.

I have used a Tonic die for the frame and frantaged a little around the image.The sentiment is computer generated. 
The little birdcage is a Tim Holtz die. I love the colour of those little pink roses. I have no idea where they came from, but the other flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
Lovely papers are from Michelle R Designs . 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing this card.

Till next time , Keep Crafting. xx

Well here is a card made with a Ppinkydolls image. I love her sitting on this fish. Her stamps are just so different and very unique. They are a pleasure to colour and make into cards. 

I have coloured her with copics and put some bubbles over the fish with glossy accents.
The sentiment is from Whimsy with matching die. My flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts. Some one asked me about the bow and what ribbon it is. I am sorry I don't know what it is called , I bought this off a lady who sells on a Face Book group here is Australia. It sure makes lovely looking bows. 

I hope you like her and thanks for coming to visit with me at my Blog. Till next time , keep crafting xx

Another of Whimsy's Elizabeth Bells stamps. I have coloured with copics. She is just so sweet. You can get her here.

I have stamped the whimsy postage stamp sentiment onto the paper used , which is a Maja Design paper, and just cut around it on the lines. Then cut out the die and glued it to the sentiment.Also heat embossed the sentiment.

The frame is from Spellbinders. The border to the left is a new one from Noor design. The blues used were B91,93,95,97 and the pinks were RV 91,93,95,99. These are the best blues for that denim look.

All flowers from Wild orchid crafts. Cottage rose,white cherry blossom, 15,20,10 mm open roses.

Thanks for coming over to see me. Till next time big Hugz xx

Who would have thought to put orange and pink together. Well here it is. Something a little different. I have used an Elizabeth Bell stamp from Whimsy. I love their rubber stamps, you always get such a lovely crisp image with them.She is called Sunnydee and Sunflowers.

I got a new paper pad from Kaisercraft and wanted to use it. Called Tigerlilly and is all orange and pinks. Not exactly colours I would put together , but it came out quite nicely.

The sentiment ticket is Whimsy as well , the die with matching stamps. 
I would love to be a part of their design team , as they are a name that has always been associated with lovely stamps and dies. 
There is always something from Whimsy on my cards. 
To be a part of their team , to make cards with their new releases would be very exciting. And to be on a team with such wonderful accomplished card makers would be a treasure.

Here is a little close up for you.

All my flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

I was so thrilled with these Whimsy Stamps I just want to remind you of how nice they are.

I have made two cards for the opportunity to be a part of the Whimsy team. Here is the second one.

This one is called Rowan Fairy. She is just sooo sweet.
You can find her here.

And a third just for fun.

This is a lovely Candibeen stamp.And I have coloured her with distress inks. I will master this yet !!  It is just such a different regime to copic markers.

I have used Walnut for her hair, faded jeans and iced spruce for the blues.Antique linen for her shoes and shirt.
The papers are a prima called Annalee.
The flourish at the bottom with the butterflies is a memory box die. 
Flowers from Wild Orchid crafts.
The frame is from Cheery Lyn.

Thank you for visiting my little world of cards.


It has been a very good but busy week with making cards this week. I had to make three cards for orders. Might as well show you them altogether. Here goes. This one was done for a lady who wanted yellow roses. Chose this pretty Artbymiran one. 

This is one I have done before and as I had already sold it she wanted me to do another.She is from Aurora Wings.

She is just so elegant. Quite a challenge to colour though.

And the third one was from Moxi Girls, which you can get for free on the website.

I do really like this girl and her hair is so nice to colour. 
I hope you enjoyed seeing these cards, and hoping the ladies who bought them will like them too.
