The beautiful cross is from Just Inklined and can be purchased here from La Pashe. I actually wrote the Promarker colours down, but guess what .. I've lost them too!! lol

Fizzy Moon Easel Drawer

This is the second of the five I made, this time using the gorgeous Fizzy Moon range. I'm not sure I like the pyramage as it sometimes gets a bit difficult to see the actual picture because of the height of the layers!!

I'm on with a three drawer box at the moment, I just need to decorate it and then I'll post it on here when it's finished.

Enjoy your day whatever you're doing xx

I hope you've all had a lovely Easter. I've still got seven days holiday before I go back to work .. now what shall I do with myself .. mmm well now that the sun seems to have gone back to bed I think I'll decorate the rest of the boxes!! xx

Peel off flowers

Yes I did say "peel off" flowers!! lol Who would have thought peel offs could look so nice.

I stuck them onto pink card and cut round them then layered them on top of each other and mounted them onto a nestie oval. The backing paper is from the Papermania Capsule Boysenberry range. Finished off with a computer generated sentiment and some white pearls.

See you soon xx

Just for You Fizzy Moon

This is for my cousin Lynda's birthday on Sunday, who was born 8 hours before me on the same day, so her birthday is one I can never forget!!

I've used the delightful Fizzy Moon Celebrations range, i.e. the pyramage topper and the beautiful flowery backing paper, and some matching coloured cardstock.

Have a nice evening, whatever you're doing xx

Purple and Black Iris

This gorgeous iris is just another of the beautiful spring flowers available from Just Inklined and can be purchased here from La Pashe.

I coloured it in with Promarkers and as per usual forgot to make a note of the colours I used!!!
A very simple card to make with the the ribbon and the pearls the only embellishments.

Pretty Daffodils

I think daffodils have to be one of my favourite spring flowers, and this gorgeous image from Just Inklined was a delight to colour. It can be purchased here

I used some gingham paper from my stash, and the top half of the card was edge punched with the MS Doily punch and then finished with some Hougie Board score lines.

Hope your all enjoying your weekend and this lovely spring weather. See you soon xx

Bring In Spring

Hello and welcome to this month's Just Inklined Blog Hop. Our host this month is Jeni and her theme choice is "Bring In Spring".

I made a very simple card using this beautiful Hydrangea image available here at La Pashe. I coloured it in with Promarkers and used some matching card for contrast. Finished it off with a few score lines using my Hougie board and some white pearls.

If you're following the hop in the right order you should have arrived here from Meesh and from here you need to pop over to Cathy and see what little beauty she's got in store for you.

In case you get lost here's the hop in the correct order.

Karen (me)

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend .. I know I did (thanks Samantha xx)
See you soon xx
