Best Wishes

Today I had time to play along with a couple of challenges at Splitcoast.  I used my branch stamp from Penny Black, coloured it using my Memento markers and sprayed with water before I stamped in the masked area.  I sponged on Distress inks and then added the sentiment from Paper Smooches.  The edges are distressed with a distressing tool.
Thanks for coming by to take a look.
Supplies:  stamps...Penny Black; All You Need, Paper Smooches/ Distressing tool/ Distress Inks/ twine

Grow Giggles

I'm back today with a card I am entering into the challenge at Moxie Fab which is to use gingham on your card.  I just love how the grass turned out on my card.  I treated myself to some new stamps on Mother's Day and this set is one of them from Paper Smooches.  The flower is coloured using Copics, pop dotted for interest.
Thanks so much for coming by to take a look.  Hope your 'snippet of time' are good ones.  
Supplies:  stamps; Paper Smooches/ Copics/ pop dots/ grass die

Glad to Be Back

hi there.....I am so happy to report that my surgery was a great success and I am feeling much better.  All your well wishes and emails helped so much...thank-you!! 
So I finally got around to making  a card for the challenge at CAS-ual use a punch or die cut.  First I stamped the flowers from Enjoy 30-024 and embossed them in white.  The Big Wish 30-098 for the sentiment was stamped in black then I rubbed Distress Broken China ink over the whole image.  The frames are cut using a die from Spellbinders.  Thanks so much for coming by.
Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ Spellbinders/ pop dots/ embossing powder/ Distress Ink

Sending Sunshine

No Rational Reason To Be A Pessimist

Sorry, no card to post..... just sending a bit of sunshine your way.  As most of you know, I have been sick and seems I will need to have some surgery to remove my gall bladder next week.  Sure looking forward to feeling better and creating again.
Thanks so much for dropping by.
