A Whole Year More Incrediblerer!

A Whole Year (3)Hello again!

So far … so good! I have managed to get some cards on my blog! FINALLY! This is my most recent creation … and although I haven’t mailed it yet to my niece (the soon to be recipient), I know that NO-ONE reads my blog anymore … so it is safe to post it here!! :D :wink: (grin!)

I am gradually getting the hang of my COPICS … but do need to work on ‘curly hair’ a bit more. I also need some more colours. With a limited range it is hard to do good blending. I did indulge a little in the recent Simon Says Stamping COPIC sale … and ordered a few more! SShhh … don’t tell Gav! :wink:

Sunny Fun Birthday

Summer Fun B'day (3)Hi there!

Now this is a real “blast from the past”. I cannot actually remember how long ago I created this card … I just never got around to posting it! It was for a young niece of mine for her birthday. I  do remember that this was one of my first attempts with the now extinct SU! Blendabilities. Not bad for a newbie colourer. I have since indulged in some Copics. I used some clear window sheet for the panel behind the ice-creams!

Moonlight (4)Most of the “sample” cards I will be sharing with you are cards that were made at Leonie’s. Tracy, Jenny, Leonie & I try to get together every couple of months and have a weekend of fun, friendship and stamping! It gives me an opportunity to catch up on the latest SU! happenings now that I am no longer a demonstrator. This was a card we all created together based on a card Leonie found on pinterest. We used a brayer for the background effect. The designer, Sue, explained the process on her blog … if you are interested in trying it!

Congratulations Anniversary (4)

Hi again!

Tonight I am sharing a CAS anniversary card that has been in my photo files for awhile. I used some vellum for the front layer and popped it through the Big Shot with a pretty embossing folder.

A Christmas Scene

Christmas Scene (5)Well … it seems I have completely missed out on Christmas this year! But … I actually DID make a few cards and sent a few out. Many less than I usually do (apologies to those who missed out) … but I really was particularly frantic this year! I don’t really understand why … but … sigh … one of these days I will catch up! This was a card we made at one of our weekend retreats at Leonie’s! It was a fun one!
