Peace and Happiness

Good morning folks, it´s a very wet one here so ideal to stay in my craftroom all day. I have inked up Spring Time Hannah with Butterflies  which I won from The Pixie cottage a couple of years ago and this is the first time she has seen ink, I really must try and ink up every unused stamp I have but reckon that will take me some time so better get started.

I have coloured her with copics and cut out with my beloved nesties. Papers are Me to You - Especially for You, pearls from Mei Flower, flowers, leaves and butterflies are punched and I added some liquid pearls to the centre of the flowers.

Teddy Bears Picnic

Good morning peeps, tis only little ole me popping by after such a long absence and hopefully I´m back for a while! I had my first hip replacement six weeks ago and whilst mobility still isn´t great at least I have got rid of the awful pain in my right hip.
Anyhoo I have finally got back into crafting and had a wee play with this much neglected stamp, can´t believe  I have had "Strawberry Tea" by Elisabeth Bell for over three years and never inked her up.

I have coloured her with my copics and as always used my nestability dies. Papers are Me to You Spring Chic, pearls and gems from Mei Flowers and everything else from my stash.

Ooh to sit out and eat icecream

Good evening folks, sorry I´ve been AWOL for ages. It´s months since I made a card or browsed blogland but hopefully I´m back for a wee while at least. Once I get these new hip replacements hopefully I´ll be hunky dory again. I can´t believe I haven´t made a card in months but better late than never I suppose, at one point I didn´t think I´d ever craft again but thanks to my daughter´s constant encouragement here I am.

I have no idea what has happened to blogger in my absence so will keep trying to publish this post. Does anyone know how to get the old page back?

Ooh I can´t believe I have never inked up "Summer Icecream" which I´ve had for ages, I coloured this cutie with copics and cut out with my beloved nesties - I sure would be lost without them as I would my glamour dust which simply isn´t showing up with this dreadful light. Paper is "First Edition" Up, up and Away and everything else from stash.

For a beautifu lady

Good morning folks, hope you are all well. Wow it sure is blowing a gale here this morning and the wind howled all night so think it will be another day indoors again.

I have not done much crafting this year as I have been suffering with back and hip problems since November so sitting, walking etc are not easy and sadly I have stood down from Lili´s Little Fairies, old Lili of the Valley challenge blog where I spent many happy years on the DT.

Anyhoo onto my card, I have used this gorgeous digi image by artist Morgan Fitzsimons available at Scrapbook Stamp Society/ Addicted To Stamps and she is called Cameo 1.
Decided to use my new Me to You - Spring Chic papers, ribbon from Joanna Sheen and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

A wee close up for this gorgeous lady which I have coloured with my copics and cut out with my oval nesties, especially made for my dear friend Betty whose birthday it is today
