POD _ let the wind..

Hi there, you can find this umbrella from the stamp set.. The Daily Weather by Carolyn Draws.
I stamped the Umbrella several times on Watercolour Paper and coloured them with my Zig Clean Colour Pens.
I stamped the sentiment on black card and embossed it with white and placed this on an angle on my card.

Bonjour..

 Hi, another gorgeous image today from the Paper Shelter. I used one of the building stamps from Tim Holtz for my background and the stones that the gorgeous girl has under her chair is an old, old stamp I have had for ages so I can't remember where it came from sorry...
I coloured the background with only a light colouring of Copics as I wanted the girl to be the focus of me card.

cool....

Hi there, today's card is all about those cute lil Penguins from MFT.
I coloured the penguin with copics and added a little white gel pen..
I then gave the penguin a snorkel and goggles from Impression Obsession Die, created  a watercolour background that was then glued onto my base card that I did using memento ink pads and stamps from Papertrey Ink.

I have been {CASE}ed....

 
Hi there, todays post is a little different as not so long ago I was asked by the very talented..
 Kelly Latevola -  You and Your Big Dreams ......
 if I would be a part of a feature blog post where every week she publishes her unique {CASE}ing Genius  series where she showcases different card artists she likes.
 This week it is little old me that Kelly is {CASE}ing for her latest feature blog post...
 It is a HUGE, HEGE compliment and I am very appreciative that I was asked by Kelly to participate.
How it works is... we are asked a few basic easy questions and  we send her any 3 of our cards so she can CASE them into one brilliant card of her own.
Now if you have not seen Kelly's work then you really are missing out, she is one extremelly talented lady...
  You must check out her BLOG and her Instagram account.
  I'm so excited to see what she has created .. so I'm off to her Blog now to look...
Thanks For Stopping By and Have Yourself a Great Day.xxx

hang loose....




Hi there, so when I received this stamp set called Polynesian Paradise from MFT she just called out to me that she need a surfboard... Ok so after going thru my reasonably vast collection!!! of MFT Stamps and Dies and not finding what I needed I thought to make my own..
 I used Stitched Speech Bubble Edges Dies to create my own! What do you think?

I coloured the cute girl with Copic's  and the background is called Balloon String,  also from MFT, embossed and coloured with Distress Inks.
Over at the MFT Blog there is a Superstar Challenge that runs until Sept 18th so I'm entering my card.
Thanks For Stopping By and Have Yourself a Great Day.xxx

hello....

 
Hi there, I have had a bit of spare time so I played along with the challenge over at..
 Poppy Stamps Challenge- #12...the theme being Autumm Splendour.
I die cut the Gentle Leaf Die into Watercolour Paper, coloured the leaves with Peerless Watercolours and then inlaid them back into the card.
 I die cut the word Hello from Gold Foil Card.
