Here today to let you know there's a new challenge starting today over at:
Dream Valley
The theme this week is:
Square Cards Only 
I think this may be a popular one!

Sponsoring the challenge is:
Star Stampz.

I have used an image from this week's fabby sponsor called My Sweet Sunflower
I used Markers and inks to colour in the image, decoupaging the sunflower that I printed onto a shrunk down DP from a Dreamees CD that I used full size for the backing paper.

The sentiment is also a Dreamees stamp and a few blue embellies to match the image colours

MAWTT's is Graduating


Good Morning,

It seems ages since I posted anything, life has been getting in the way recently. I am hoping things will calm down and I will get a bit of me time.

A new challenge begins today and runs for a fortnight over at
Moving Along With The Times
the theme has been chosen by the lovely Amy which is:

Graduation


Not sure who the stamp image & sentiment stamp is by, maybe Penny Black????? The image was coloured with dinky inkies and blending solution by the Dreamees and a little chalk. The backing paper is embossed using an A4 folder from SB dainty dots. The little gems were a present from my Daughter that she brought in India, she brought me a nice selection in different sizes and colours. Look forward to her next visit see what goodies she's picked up. Not long before she comes home, I can't wait to see her, she fly's home on the 21st of July and is staying for 3 weeks this time.

Wonderful Mum

 Good Afternoon,

An unusual time for me to post I hear you say, but I am on annual leave and am trying to get better at posting more regularly. We'll see how it goes when I get back to work.
I thought I would share the card I made for my Mum who has been so wonderful helping me with my recovery from my recent treatments. "Love you Mum"

All papers used are printed from a Dreamees CD, the backing paper, mat on round focal point and for the flowers. The roses are hand rolled and the blossoms were punched.
The leaves were die cut, the doily (by bird cards) was cut on the cameo both in kraft and both were inked with distress ink.
The sentiment was made by me on the computer.
Hope you like, my Mum did!
