Not a card

Good morning to you all.

Last night I sat down to colour this gorgeous Poppy digi image from Justinklined, and thought it would look fab on a candle.  I have seen loads of these that other people have done but I have never attempted one myself, so I found out the instruction and got started.

Has this was a digi image I had to print it onto the tissue paper, and after several attempts, lots of cussing, and managing to clog up my printer with tissue paper I finally managed to print out a usable image!!
I coloured it with Promarkers, and then followed the instructions to melt it onto the candle.
I am very pleased with my first attempt and could not believe how easy it was.
I have added some green satin ribbon and cream lace from my stash and thats it all done!

I will be back later today with a card using the same image( hopefully)

Thank you for visiting.

Posy Trio

Firstly I would like to thank you for the lovely comments and wishes regarding my family it is really appreciated.

 Hope you are all enjoying this lovely spring weather, I have made a start to tidy the garden and even the chicken coop is having a spring clean

For my card today, I have made a Mothers day card and used some lovely lilac card and a stamp from LOV called Posy Trio, I always think that spring is here when its Mothers day .I have had this stamp for some time and this is the first time that I have coloured it!! I am so ashamed.

The image is coloured with promarkers and I have cut out the little teddies, and mounted onto foam pads in the circles of the die namics die.

I have added a little butterfly from a martha stewart punch to replace the one on the stamp.

The dottie embossing folder is from Crafters Companion.

Ribbon is from my stash, along with the pearl.

You can not see it in this picture but I have added some glamour dust under the butterfly and on the flowers.
The Sentiment is computer generated and I have used one of the circles that was cut out to print onto.

 You can just see in this picture the glamour dust under the butterfly.

This is my second card for the Papertake weekly bingo challenge using 
Die Cuts, Glitter and free.

Many thnaks for visiting

I am back

I am back!!

Sorry I have not been around for the last week or so, but I have had so much going on at home with first my sister and then my Father in Law being ill, I have had no time to craft.  Hopefully they are all on the mend and I should have some time to myself.
I will try to get to visit some of your blogs and see what you have all been upto.

Onto my card, I have used a layout similar to one I have used before because I just love these borders and bow die from the blue print set.

I have used a digi image from all dressed up and coloured with polychromo pencils, and mounted onto an embossed panel.
The white and blue card is from Papermill direct.
Sentiment is computer generated.
