Pear Tree

Hi there, I did this card yesterday but its taken ages for the 3D laquer to dry. The image is a digi I got ages ago, I'm afraid I can't remember were from, if you know please can you let me know so I can credit it. I coloured with copics then the pears I covered with 3D laquer and whilst it was still wet I sprikled a bit of glamour dust, it doesn't show up very well or the Twinklets on the snowflakes, which is a Martha Stewart punch. The papers are K & Co, green bazill and red metalic brads from stash.

What a great sketch Dawn has provided us with again this week, remember you can do what you want with the sketch as long as we can still see it somewhere.

I've used a Sweet Pea stamp this week, coloured with copics, HOTP papers EK punches and some pearls. The photo has come out a bit pale, the colours are more vibrant in real life, and I've also added a few highlights with a sakura stardust pen.

Hi there, a bit of good news this weekend, I won an image from Kenny K's blog hop, I chose Luscious Linda from there new range, what a decision there's so many yummy images.

Had a great weekend with my son Dean and Leanne his lovely wife, spent lots of quality time together, catching up on life in general, and I even got a phone call from my eldest Daz, I usually say if he doesn't get in touch it means his alright, but we had a great chat and life is treating him well, you geta strange sort of inner peace when you know your family is allright. Ahhhhhh.

I even made a card last night, something I havn't done much off just lately, mojo been for a walk or a marathon. Used a Kenny digi, cooured with copics, some mega old Papermania papers I found at the bottom of a pile, yes I have been tidying up. Prima flowers , pearls and brads from the Hobby house, used an EK border punch and my nesties.

Wedding Book

Hiya, I've had another order for a Wedding book, its for a lad that was at school with my eldest son, so I guess theres hope for him too (one day)

This is the box to pop it in, The book is made from chipboard hearts I've had for ages, it was a bit of a mistake really as I had a right job finding things to fit onto the hearts, in fact I nearly binned it and started again with a better shape. But I'm so tight I hate waste and it seemed such a shame.

Its all done in pearlesent white with gold trimings.

I'm entering it into the following:

Off now, it looks like were going to get another downpour and my washing is still on the line, I need to get it in as its the sheets for the spare room. My son and his wife are coming home for the weekend, I really need to see them, its seems like ages since I've had my baby home and its his birthday aswell he'll be 27 how time flies.
