Fairy new home

Howdy! Hope you are having a lovely afternoon, I have been trying to do some more crafts recently but I am so behind on my project life album…..

Anyhoo I was going to do some of my album but made a card instead (as you do) so I went bright then extra bright…

I didn’t actually expect the background to be this bright but wowzers! So the only image that would fit this mad background was this utterly adorable stamp by 2cuteink. I coloured her in with copic markers and the background is distress ink. She is certainly bright and colourful think I will have to save this one for a friend who is nutty and colourful ha ha! 

Thanks for stopping by 

Have a fab day!



A few cards 

Hi! Hope your having a nice week, at least it’s Friday!! 

Just popping in with a few cards I made recently 

So I keep going through phases of watercoloring or using makers so I thought it would be nice to use both and I love how the background turned out. Anything bright and colourful is always a winner.

This card was made just using markers and a background stamp, but I love this image thank you Tina if your reading this. 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!!!



Fun cards

Hi! Thought I would share a couple of cards I made, and it’s my first go making a pop up box card which was great fun to make 

I really love these stamps by my favourite things were so sweet and I loved colouring them too!

These stamps are by lawn fawn and I thought they were just adorable and so much fun, so what better way to make this more fun by adding a pop up box.

Hope you have a wonderful day!



You are awesome

Hi! Hope your having a nice day! 

I made this card today using wplus9 stamps, and I coloured it in with watercoloring. I need to invest in some more flower stamps they seem so popular right now.

Plus my stash of flower stamps is literally these…. 

I wasn’t too sure how this was going to turn out and I nearly gave up but sometimes if you keep going the end result is worth it. I also made an envelope and stamped some flowers on that too.

Thanks for stopping by 



Magical card

Hi! Hope your having a good day, I was sat in the office yesterday and I thought about making a bright colourful card. I wanted to use some fun stamps and thought these ones from my favourite things would be great! 

After colouring them I wanted to add a bit more fun so I made a shaker card. You know how much I love shaker cards….

I made the background with some distress ink and added some sequins too, you can never have to many sequins right?

Hope this card makes you smile today!



A couple of recent cards

Howdy! Hope your having a good start to the weekend, it’s been quite hot here in the U.K. which has been lovely. 

Here’s a few cards I made recently 

I have started using my copic markers a bit more, which has been fun. Although I still love using watercoloring too I just really love the bright colours you get with markers. 

Have a lovely weekend!!!
