Hang in there!


Hi bloggies!

I made some cards recently to encourage some year 12 friends who began their final exams yesterday. It took a couple of nights in front of the TV to colour them all (12 in total) … but it was very therapeutic! 🙂


So … all the images are COPIC coloured and the backgrounds are done with Distress Oxide Inks sponged over a stencil. Yes … it all took ages … 😁 … but worth it in the end.

Click images to view.

I used a white gel pen to add details to the images. Totally unnecessary … but it does add a nice effect. And … after all … I needed to give myself more to do! 😉

  • Clearly Besotted Stamps – Cheeky Monkey (+ dies)
  • Tiddly Inks – Hang in There (no dies – fussy cut!)
  • CC Designs: Swiss Pixies – Field Fence
  • My Favorite Things stamps – Cascading Scallops stencil

My quick trip to Q’ld was so worthwhile and the funeral was very special. I am so glad I made the effort. I am hoping for a quiet day tomorrow … perhaps even do some stamping … but don’t worry … I still have heaps to share!

Hope you get to Stamp tomorrow too!

Hugs xxx

    These HAD to have helped relieve the stress of final exams!! They had to have been grinning from ear to ear before their tests.

      They were sent from our “church” … so no personal feedback … but that is ok! It was just done to encourage & support. But … I think they might have smiled! Xx
