Froggy green notebook

This is an altered notebook covered with some paper offcuts, originally free with a magazine.

I'm not sure where the froggy and other stickers came from, but they seemed a fun addition.

Bunny and chick

This is another Easter card, this time based on the sketch for Techno stamper Monday lunchtime 210:


Papers are offcuts - in fact I didn't have enough of the chicks paper (left over from a previous card) to cover the card blank, so I split it above and below the piece cut from a left over of DCWV summer paper. So I'm having another turn on the swings in the playground with Pixie's crafty snippets 10. The stickers were from Poundland.

The chicks are for Cupcake inspirations 150:

A perfect summer day

This is for the sketch for Digi Makeover 24:


I confess that I actually used the sketch for my previous card, but I'd used rubber stamps and not digis, so I thought I'd now make this card using digital images as required by the challenge.

The background paper is DCWV summer - this was an offcut that's been in my scraps box for ages - this is my first card this week for Pixie's crafty snippets 10.The image is a pre-coloured one from Charmed cards and crafts called 'hammock Dottie' from the 'Dottie at home' set. The sentiment is a digital one from Paper Makeup. The flip flops are foam.

How I wish it really was a perfect summer day!

We wish you a merry Christmas

Today's Sunday's with Santa facebook challenge is 'never seen ink' - to use a stamp that hasn't been used before. I randomly stamped the background of the navy blue card blank with an inkadinkado snowflake stamp using versamark and heat embossing with white detail powder. I then stamped the white panel with Inca Merry Christmas background stamp using stazon ultramarine and heat embossing with detail clear. The pyramage topper is one that I've had for a long time, originally part of a kit. I added a couple of peel off snowflakes.
