Anniversary card

Hope you are having a good week. Made this card for a friends 44th wedding anniversary. They were 
getting married on the day I was born, how amazing is that! 

The image is Penny Black and it was coloured with water colour paints. I used various dies on this card and a Crafters Companion embossing folder for the back. 

Would like to enter this in 

Skipper is doing much better, she thinks she's 100% so has started to hunt and jump about again. She did catch a furry this week. :)
Have a great weekend.

Narcissus projects

Beccy Muir's latest release is called 'Narcissus set' and there is also a corresponding set of digital papers to work with the images.  I used one of the digital images from the set, sentiment and two papers from the paper set in my projects. The card was made by printing both papers onto card and then die cutting them. The image was printed onto white card and colours with alcohol markers. For the bottle I printed both papers onto one sheet of card and the image on white card and coloured it with alcohol markers. 

Have a great day thanks for the visits. 
Skipper is doing so much better she is even going out again!

Different project

Hope you are having a great day with all this wonderful warm sunshine. This weekend I did something a bit different. The stool in my craft room was looking a bit dirty,  so decided to give it a make-over. Had this lovely heavy fabric and thought it would look really nice on the seat. Did not 
take long to cover the seat with my brand new electric staple gun. 

As you can see Skipper was being very helpful. She is walking much better now but still not 100%. 
We are back at the hospital at the end of the month. 

Have a great day and thanks for the visit.

New Beccy Muir's release

Beccy Muir's latest digital set is called 'Gnomes in my Garden' and they are so cute. You can find more inspiration on Beccy's blog and the images for sale in her store.

My creations using the images and papers are a card, altered clipboard and a scrapbook page. The images were printed onto white card and coloured with alcohol markers. The papers were printed onto 12 x 12 sheets of textured card. There were many different dies used in the projects. Really enjoyed working with the images and matching papers. 

Thank you for visiting.
Skipper is still doing better but not 100% as yet. We are moving in the right direction. Thank you all again for your kind thoughts and purrs.

God Bless.

Mixed media project

It's a friend's birthday over the weekend and I made this for her. I used various colours of metallic inks and bead paste for the background and for colouring the grunge board shapes. Also used hot fixed gems on the crown. It took a few days to make but I am really please with it, must admit it looks better in real life.
Skipper is continuing to improve daily,she has even used the stairs now, which she had not done in two weeks. We are hopeful she will be back to her old self soon. Thank you for all your lovely comments and purrs for her.

God Bless.

Male card and update

Can't express how grateful I am for the kind thoughts and prayers for Skipper these past two week. I am delighted to say she is doing so much better . She even managed the stairs this weekend!
Thank you again for your kindness.

Wanted to share this card with you. The blue background was made with Viva Decor metal gloss paint and then over stamped with script (Club Scrap). The second background was done with various stamps in a light green. The main image was stamped and coloured with alcohol markers and water colours. 
Thank you for your visit and again a huge THANK YOU for your kindness towards Skipper.

Birthday card

Sharing a card I made for a friends birthday. The background was one of the background I recently made, which was then embossed. The stamp was coloured with alcohol markers. My lovely hubby bought the stamp and the edge die for my birthday. 
Thank you all again for your kind thoughts for Skipper, she is slowly improving. 
Have a great day and God bless.

Skipper and her shaved patches

Again, thank you all so much for your purrs and prayers for Skipper. To be honest this time last week
we did not think she would be with us. I am delighted to say she is doing a bit better every day. 
She has four shaved patches on her which will take some time to grow back. :)
Thank you again.

New release and update

Firstly I want to say a massive thank you to all those who sent purrs and healing thoughts to my beautiful Skipper. 

This is the hanger I made using the new 'Stanley in the Rain' digital set by Beccy Muir. In this project I combined the sentiment, Stanley and the clouds  and then printed it on white card. The image was coloured with alcohol markers and pencils. The background was made with deco art paints and embossing folder. Do have a look at what the rest of the DT have created.

Skipper update

Thank you for your prayers and purrs for Skipper. She is still at the Queens Veterinary School Hospital getting the very best care. They have now ruled out heart failure and said her heart was in very good shape!!! They still don't know what is causing the lameness and pain. Please keep her in your prayers, thank you so much.
Latest news:
Skipper is now back home. All the tests have come back negative so that's a relief but she is still limping. We need to see how she does in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for all the purrs and prayers they worked!

Purrs for Skipper

Please send healing purrs and prayers for Skipper. She was taken ill on Sunday and after 
three vets visits we are not sure what's wrong. Waiting on an appointment with the Cardiologist
which hopefully will give us some answers. 
Please send healing thoughts her way. 
Thank you.
She has an appointment for the Veterinary Hospital on Thursday and lots of
pain relief till then.
