A little bit Blue

Well the last day of the half term week and I have a fab day planned. I am off to teach a friend how to knit!!! I will maybe blog it later with his permission!

Anyway yesterday saw the start of the Indigo blu Blog Challenge Forever 21 and their first theme is BLUE!

I do love the indigo blu stamps and have a couple of stamps I had not used yet so I have taken the opportunity to put them to good use and make a card which I want to enter into their first challenge!

There are some lovely inspiring samples from the design team so pop over and have a peep

Anyway here is my card!
I used the Blazing Poppies Stamp coloured with promarkers for the main image.
The smaller image is the Mini Love is stamp. Its so cute!
Here are some smaller pictures to highlight the components I made the deep blue flower but the other embellishments are wooden adn I coloured the flower blue and the leaves silver
The Background was done using the crackleglaze background stamp stamped in Sonewashed Adirondack ink and the script background stamped in Demin Adirondack.
I did enjoy doing this card
Please let me know what you think
Happy Crafting

February - the month of Love

Well its half term and Thursday already! I can't believe how fast this week is going!

This whole month is going fast I think.

Anyway I thought I would blog my Valentines Card I made for Colin and also show you some of the ATCs I have made around the theme of Love.

Here is the Valentines card I made for Colin.. Its an easy one this year as I had to do it quickly!
It uses the Clarity wire heart stamp and a bit of masking and blending. I used Distress ink Worn lipstick to do it all! Oh and the sentiment I did using the Letter box set. I think the letter box sets is one of the best sets I have useful and you can write any sentiments or words!!!

The next pictures are the 3 love ATCs i have made.
The last one was sent to Anne Strickland Cole as part of the ATC swap I am involved in.
The ATC swap is a monthly swap and I sent mine to Anne but I received one from the Fabulous Lynne Hammond and here it is.
Well I am off for today - let me know what you think to LOVE!
Happy Crafting!
