Get Well Kisses

I had fun colouring this sweet image from HouseMouse, and thought it perfect for a get well card ... you know ... the "kiss it better" saying.

Bitz 1

For July our little NZ internet cardswap group had a bitz swap.  We had to select bits and pieces we have lying around in the 'bitz box' on our desk and send it to someone who makes a card with at least 3 of the bitz and sends it back.

I used 10 of the bitz. All I added of my own is the black mat and the white embossed background.

Colourful butterflies just remind me of lazy summer days, lying around, not doing anything.  I reckon they are good blood pressure medicine.   Open that lid and let them out!

I coloured his outfit blue as he wore a blue suit and her dress has shading in pink as I wore a white dress lined with pink - it's tricky to see, but it is there.

Patchwork Birthday


At the Crafters Café we have choices.  The theme is SCI-FI or PATCHWORK.  Take your pick!  See what the design team have made, and join us here: crafterscafeblogchallenge












Thanks to My Besties for the image provided, you can get it here:





Eyes coloured with Copics
Sentiment stamp: Ranger/Dina Wakely
PPaper from stash, a sprinkle of gems, black pen.


I chose to colour only the eyes of the image, I thought the image would disappear into the background if I coloured it  (sometimes I like to leave them uncoloured anyway).  The patched background is made using a stack'n'slash quilting technique.  The stamped sentiment is smudged with pale green in patches.  Stitching is added with a pen once it is all stuck down.  A sprinkle of gems falling into her hand.
It's very interesting; when I was making it, the top left square stood out, but in the photograph the centre square stands out more.

Rainbow Girl



Incy Wincy's theme this time is RAINBOWS GALORE (or at least 4 colours plus B & W).
