I am making bags to sell to raise money for Cat Protection Cambridge and this is one of them. I am planning to make ten bags and have done two so far. I must admit I really like this fabric but I have no idea where I bought it and when. Hope you are having a great week and thanks for the lovely comments on Skipper's blog.
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.
Someone asked me to make a Christmas card for his wife which includes a cat and bees. At first I was not sure what to do so I started with the this lovely Penny Black image and then added the holly leaves around and then the bees. I am really please with how this card turned out. Sometimes you make a card that you are really pleased with and this is one of mine.
Hopefully you can see all the glitter on this card from this view. Must admit it does look much better in real life. Have a great day and thanks for the visit.
I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.
Hope you are all having a great Sunday. We have beautiful sunshine today so I don't mind the cold.
You may have realized that I adore these Margaret Sherry cats. This Penny Black stamp is called Wonderful Christmas and has been well used over the years. The image was heat embossed and coloured with watercolours. Entering this card into the Penny Black and More challenge: Traditional Christmas colours.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Sharing another Christmas card using my new gelato sticks to colour the background. I embossed the white card with the snowflakes and then added the three shades of blue gleato sticks and blended them with my finger. Then covered the background with a clear glitter paint and I also added a bit around the Penny Black image. Been selling a few of these Christmas cards to raise a bit of funds for the Cat Protection Cambridge branch.
Hope you are having a good day today. Made this card with the Pixies Snippets Playground challenge in mind. I used two pieces of card from my scrap- box, the brown one already had the shape taken out. The stamp sentiment is by Hero Arts.
Those who give to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to them receive many curses.
Hope you are all keeping warm today. Been up since 4:30am and boy is it cold outside. Wanted to share another one of my Christmas cards with you. The background was made by stamping two SeeD's stamps and colouring them with alcohol markers. The cat image is by Marianne designs an was coloured with watercolours and alcohol markers and decoupaged. Have a lovely day.
Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down.
Hope you are having a good Saturday. I am feeling a bit better, thank you for your comments. One of my latest Christmas cards using this cute Penny Black stamp. The background was made by embossing a piece of white A4 card and then added four colours of Faber- Castell gelato sticks (bought from Crafting Time today) and blended with water and a brush. Will have to play a bit more with these new product.
Would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Hope you are having a good day. Thank you for your visits, I am on the road to recovery. Wanted to share another card I made this week. The Santa image and the tree image are stamps by Third Coast Rubber stamps and the sentiment is by The Artistic Stamper.
The images were coloured with alcohol markers and glitter added with stickles.
Made this simple Christmas card yesterday. The stamp is a PSX which I embossed in black and coloured with alcohol markers. I used the EK Success punches for the circles. Not only do I have a stinking cold our heating system is overflowing again! This is on top of a leaky pipe last weekend. The joys of winter.
Hope you are having a lovely day.
Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise.
It's a beautiful sunny day, but boy is it cold! Great excuse to stay indoors and do a bit of crafting. Been making more Christmas cards and this one uses Third Coast rubber stamps only. The flower image was coloured with alcohol markers. Hope you have a lovely day.
I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
Wanted to share one of my Christmas cards for this year. All the ones I have done before were for charity. Now I am working on some for my use. The image is a Penny Black one and it has been coloured with watercolours and sakura glitter pens. The embossed background was made by embossing the card with two different folders.
My heart goes out to all the people in the Philippines.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
Hope you are having a good day. We started with beautiful sunshine this morning but it's now wet and cold. Here is a card I made this week suing a scrap background. Had no idea what to do with it when I started but I do like how it ended up. Have a great weekend.
Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.
