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.

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!

Simple owl card

Really simple card using an a digi image from Beccy Muir's Owlet Set. The background was done with an InkyDoodles stamp and coloured with distress ink. The flower was made with  a die and the banner was another die and the edges were inked with chalk ink. The sentiment is also from the Owlet set. 

A photo of Skipper with her little furry friend. You will be happy to know it did get away from her!
Have a lovely day.

Beccy Muir's Wild Rose set

Time for another release from Beccy Muir. This time it's this wonderful Wild Rose set which was a joy to work with. You can see what the other design team members have created on Beccy's Blog and you can purchase the set from her Shop.
Also the monthly challenge is back with a few news rules and a free image from Beccy so do have a look.
How I made my card. Firstly I printed the the background papers from the corresponding digital Wild Rose paper set. Then used tonic and Die-namic dies to cut them out. I printed and cut out the wild rose image and coloured it with alcohol markers and colour pencils. The sentiment is also from the Wild Rose set.

Skipper and Pearlescent backgrounds

This is Skipper enjoying the lovely warm sunshine we had last week. She even caught her first furry creature of the year! She is my beautiful girl who will be 16 years old in May.

While  trying to sort out my craft room last week, I found my stash of Daler-Rowney Pearlescent liquid acrylics, which have been in my stash  for over 16 years. Used each bottle  of the acrylic paint to colour a sheet of 300gsm card stock, to make my own pearlescent card and it looks wonderful in real life. The orange/red one in the front were made with liquid watercolours.
Just need to make some projects with the lovely cards now. 

Have a great week.
