Mothers Day

Hi there, I've made another Mothers Day card, using a Mo Manning image. The photo is pants I dont know why but pink seems to be a problem , it always looks washed out. I'll have to talk nicely to Hubby he's quite a wiz on Photoshop.

I've coloured it with copics, K&Co papers, nesties, Rub ons, ribbon, gems and flowers from stash.

Just a quick post tonight as my MIL has been for tea,

Mothers Day

I used a WOJ stamp coloured with copics, Martha Stewart Heart border punch, Memory Box Jubilee papers, Scrapbook House rub ons and some baby's breath flowers my sister gave me. Oops nearly forgot the paper doily from the Hobby House.

Lots of Love

Evening, I don't need anymore Valentine cards so I thought I would make a Lots of Love one as I can use this for lots of occasions. I used a LOTV stamp, coloured with copics, pink petticoat papers, heart shaped pearls, an assortment of flowers and a Marrianne doily.
Had an easy day at work today, its my husbands and my birthday today, so we went out for dinner and finished early.
I made this last night but it wasn't dry for me to take the photo. Hope you've had a good day, the sun actually came out for a bit today, that always makes you feel better and walking the dogs in the daylight is a real bonus.

Elf Messenger

Hiya, hope you've had a great weekend, I finally gave in and attacked the ironing its not all done but I can almost see the bottom. Does any one else hate ironing? its not the actual ironing its the fact that it makes me think too much! and then I get down, Oh well once a month I can manage. Any way to cheer myself up this afternoon I coloured The Elf Messenger from The Paper Shelter using my copics, K&Co paper, EK flourish punch, and baby buttons.
