Shadow Box Card

Morning everyone...
How's your week going?

I've another shadow box card to share that I made for my old high school friend who will be celebrating her birthday soon... I made a 5x5" card this time and yes that little seagull got in on the act again Lol!
 I figured that her lovely hubby will be taking her off on some wonderful holiday for her birthday so I made my card with a beach theme

I'm getting quite addicted to these type of cards...
The background was printed but the numbers and the shell (inside) are done using the faux enamel technique with gold, silver and white embossing powders 

The trees are coloured with Copics and I stamped some birds on the BG

These cards are not easy to photograph though... That's the only downside.

It's turned cool here and it's very dull but according to the weather reports we are expecting another little heatwave... Well, so they say.

I hope you are enjoying your day, thanks for your visit

Happy Fathers Day

Hello and happy Fathers Day to all you guys out there!

Missy my black and white cat brought my hubby a huge mouse this morning... She's been on mouse watch for a year and finally, FINALLY caught one and she was so proud ... Until I took it off her and let it go... I just can't bear to see anything hurt so he has to be content with the card I made him on behalf of the cats

 I had no idea when I added that mouse that he would get a real live one Lol! And this is the inside

Ginger boy, Missy and Tabby - That is so like Ginger to try and fit in a box that he's just too fat for.

I hope you are enjoying your day... Many thanks to the team at Just Us Girls for picking my previous card as their Chic of the Week ... Wow!

Catch you all soon

Just us Girls Challenge

Well hello again... 

This is a 2nd post today as I've made a quick card  for 

It's ages since I played along here and the challenge finishes soon.
I'm pretty new to alcohol inks so I wanted to give it a go - Here's my card

Pat gave me that sentiment die yesterday and I had some left over die cut negative pieces from my previous card so I put them both to use

I only used two Rangers Alcohol Inks - Purple Twilight and Stream then stamped and white embossed the same image from my previous card

Going for a cup of tea now so I'll catch you soon

Flowers for a friend

It's very windy here today, well, it started last night and having a cool breeze it gave me the best night's sleep in ages!

Today I have a card to share that I made for a friend's birthday 

I printed the background onto my card using a digital image 

I'm not that good at colouring in images but now and then I like to try - For this I used Copic Ciaos

...And added some liquid pearls
The images are double cut so they have a lot of dimension. 
The stamp and die I bought on the internet and the sentiment is a favourite from WPlus 9

Wishing you a lovely day

I knew it... Once I got those sea dies out, I would have to make another card

This one is another one for 

And this time it's all watercolour die cuts

My friend Pat gave me some seahorse dies and I paired them with the Avery Elle coral dies

I painted various colours onto watercolour cardstock for this... It didn't look too pretty at the time but it's amazing how the colours come to life when it's cut into something. Being as it was quite thick, the detail on the seahorses shows up really well

The postage stamp is a really old wooden one and I have no idea where I got 

Did you enjoy your weekend? It was a busy one here
We had a lovely day out on Saturday and stopped for lunch in one of our favourite places in Bunbury... The church is right across the road and there was a big wedding taking place - Turned out is was Beth Tweddle the Olympic medallist. We went on to Nantwich and there was another big wedding... My, you should have seen how many Bentleys there were! 
Sunday was a day full of visitors, some expected and some not - The whole weekend just flashed by

Enjoy your day

Till soon

Making every Piece Count

Hello again...

I didn't expect to be back so soon but I came up with a card for this months challenge at 
So here I am posting

This month's prompt is Ocean 

Oh how I wish I were near one now...

Anyway, my card is made up from those little pieces that I keep, hence the title

A tiny piece done in alcohol ink which I've used for the centre triangle and a piece done Gansai Tambi watercolours for the coral...

Does alcohol ink qualify? Maybe not... Oh well, it's the taking part that counts

I enjoyed myself that's for sure

Have a good day
