Wish You Were Here?

Hello. 

I couldn't resist this Dustin Pike Whimsy  Beach Gnome set so I decided to use a few and make it look like he was sending some holiday snaps of a typical day's holiday! The backgrounds are all done with Distress Oxides.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' and our theme this time is Vintage/Shabby Chic/Distressed. 

You know me, I get very distressed when this challenge pops it's ugly head up! Anyway, I've tackled vintage. Maybe.  Is it?

A wee Christmas page in my art journal.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' and our theme this time is Doodling. 

I should explain, this came about as a result of a background I wasn't happy with, threw to one side and did something else, then had a look at it again and decided to do something with it, then.... whilst looking in my drawer of things I've made I decided I'd pull out all my Tracey Hey stuff that was just lying in there (that was the same shape) and make a book... so it's a book of envelopes, not all of the pages have doodling, but there is doodling in there I promise. 

Oh and I might start book #2 now!




















I wrote a list of all the sets I used but I can't find it and at the moment I'm suffering from covid so will come back and confirm.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' .  The theme this time is Fairytale Characters/Inspired by a Fairytale.

I guess mine isn't really a fairytale, but it is inspired by a children's book and an a old favourite in this house! I've used various Vera Lane Studio sets and one Janet Klein AALL and Create stamp.  I think I've got them all below but as I stupidly didn't write them all down at the time I may not have!

Hello!

This wee cutie from Whimsy is saying hello today.  I love doing cards where there's an animal peeking in from the side and I particularly love the expression on this wee dude's face.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' .  The theme this time is Rainbows and Rainy Days.

I've got two cards to share today.

The first is a rainy day and the second is a rainbow!

Pig in Wellies -  Lee Holland
Copics/Promarkers/Flexmarkers
Watercolour Background - LotV
Stitched Square - The Works

And for the second card I wanted to use a rainbow, I'm not sure this is what I set out to do but it looks ok.  This wee rhino dude doesn't have wellies so I used the wellies from one of the badgers in the Badger Me set and used those and the falling hearts are from the Sentimental set, I've just used the brolly to cover up the top bit of the image! 

Rhino Rascals, Badger Me, Sentimental - Tracey Hey
Copics/Promarkers/Flexmarkers
Umbrella - Spellbinders
