Country Companions

I'm having a rest from colouring in so made this quick and easy card using the gorgeous Country Companions Decoupage range.

Not a lot to say about this card really, it's self explanatory ... I think!! lol

Hope you all enjoyed your Bank Holiday Weekend despite the horrible weather!! xx

Gardening Shelf

Yoohoo!! I'm back!! What do you mean you didn't know I'd been away!! lol

Well it's been two whole weeks since I last posted on here. My mojo just took off and disappeared to who knows where, and came back yesterday like nothing had ever happened!!!

I used the gorgeous Gardening Shelf from Just Inklined and just matted and layered onto pastel green gingham paper.

I hope you all have a great weekend and I'm off to make some more cards before my mojo does one again!! lol xx

Tulips in a jug

I love tulips and this image from Just Inklined is one of my favourites and so easy to colour.

Coloured as usual with Promarkers and as usual can't remember what colours ... doh!!!
The striking red backing paper is from a Stampin' Up pad and finished off as usual with ribbon and black gems.

See you soon xx

Mini picnic baskets

I've been itching to make these picnic baskets up ever since I came across a tutorial on YouTube.
They look quite complicated but are so simple to do, in fact so simple I made three of them in one sitting!! lol

In the video she uses much bigger brads on the handles but I didn't have any so had to use the small ones that I had but they work perfectly. The tutorial can be found here.

Have a nice day xx

Card for Diane

Back to my first love decoupage. I was asked to make a card with teddy bears on and the gorgeous Forever Friends range come up trumps every time.

The backing paper is also from Forever Friends and I just finished it off with a few punched flowers, pearls and ribbon.

See you soon xx

Just Inklined to Hop - Check It Out

Well here we are again with our monthly Just Inklined Blog Hop.
It's my turn to host this month so you're in the right place to start the hop and my chosen theme is "Check It Out" (checks as in squares!! lol)

I chose this gorgeous Pansy image and coloured it with Promarkers. The gingham check is from the Wild Rose Studio Gorgeous Ginghams paper pack, and the embossed frame is from Craftwork Cards.

To make the hop more fun, there are two hidden spot prizes on two of the design teams blogs. We're not letting you know on whose blogs the prizes can be found, but if you leave a comment on each blog and your name is chosen from one of the winning blogs, then you win the digi image showcased on the card on that particular blog.

So on to the hop. From here you need to pop over to the fabulous Cathy and see what little beauty she's created and just in case you get lost here's a list of all the girls in the correct order.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoy the hop xx
