I'M BACK!!!! online and lots to catch up on!!!

As you may know I haven't had a working telephone line for two weeks (arrhhh!).... well It's back "ON!!!" You know, I skipped and danced about and even Maoleidigh could tell something good was going on, until of course I tried to go online and alas it took a further three days for that bit to work (thanks to Nigel who pressed the right button)... turns out they had changed the old lines underground to new fab ones, it took a lot of Telecoms staff down the hole to fix that problem (I could see them from my window), I don't think I was the only one without :( But here I am back online and a lot to catch up on...

so... this is my late Design team card for Inspirational Card Sketches....
Wow this is soooo Late on my blog, sorry Dawn....


This sketch designed by the very lovely Dawn will hopefully inspire you, as it did me.

Loving this Cosmo Cricket paper and with my new Greeting Farm Anya stamps "they're so adorable". I even tried my hand and stitching on my paper. Very pleased with the result will certainly give it another go!

I have coloured the beautiful Anya with my copics directly onto some patterned paper, it's a very subtle colour difference. I particularly like this one as her eyes are open and as always is the case it rains alot here in blighty! so her umbrella very fitting!

Materials: Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Die's: Nestabilties, Fiskars - Apron Lace, Sizzix - flower layers, Stamps: TGF - Rain Anya, CHF - Kim Hughes -'Scripty words', Hero Arts - floral, Ink: Archival Ink - black, memnto - black, copic sketch, Other: Adhesive pearls, Lace, adhesive bling, 3D foam, needle and thread,

Onto other news...
