You smiled because you knew :D

Hi folks, I'm back on this cool, wet Friday to share my Stampotique  offering. This week Sue has challenged us to make a postcard

Here is Roc Nicholas' little Feline, I've had her for a while but wasn't sure how to get her dressed up for her first public viewing on this blog :D Decided to go for a loving card, I love Shakespeare (well a lot of his stuff :D ) and this quote particularly, not sure where it's from or if it is in it's original form but you get the gist! It made me smile anyway.

My Sis arrives from Australia tomorrow, I'm so excited

Hello folks, I'm happy to be back with you again, hoping that you've had a great Easter if you celebrate it and a lovely spring weekend if you don't :D
We went to a wonderful wedding at the weekend and stayed at the big ol' country house overnight, it was magic. We saw some great friends, got dressed up and had some fab food, how lucky is that!! :D
So back down to earth and today I have a card for CASology where the challenge is

 I love a little glitter, just for the center of my flowers, gold Stickles no less! The sentiment was so good I stamped it thrice !!!
Stamp by HobbyArt, Floral Sketch, sentiment by JOFY, I used my Inktense pencils and water coloured the flowers, splashed with a little Cosmic Shimmer, Golden Mint and Bob's yer uncle :D
Lovely to see you! Hugs Gay x

WET, WET WET!!! Not the group!

Hi there everyone, welcome here,
Today I have a card for the CASology challenge which this week is..........

 this is my card

 and here is a little how I did it, pretty self explanatory but if you're new to stamping it might help :D

Stamped on my card first in Versafine black ink and then stamped again on a post it note. Cut out the wet lady :) and masked  her then with the Tim Holtz 'Spatters' layering stencil laid over her I inked gently with Distress, Salty Ocean.

Finally I coloured her with Copic pens. I debated whether to use a sentiment, in my stash I had one that said 'Make a Splash' which seems perfect but I didn't like the way it looked so left it off.
Lovely to see you :D Gay x

Turquoise, brilliant!!

Hi there, lovely crafty people, I'm back today with a couple of cards for LIM, this time it's a colour, nice colour too, turquoise one of my all time favourite colours especially when teamed with brown or orange, yum yum!

 and here is the other! Bad light again here today, raining. Sorry about the quality of pictures :( But we have had some great weather so I'm not complaining (;D)

Love those funky bows LOL
In the centre of the bow are gems, quite sparkly...

I have inked, stamped, sprayed and coloured the card to within an inch of it's life and had the best fun :D New TH dies inspired me!

 For the first card I used

Anna griffin Embossing folder 'Rosa'
Dylusions inks

For the second card I used

Round again :D

Hi Folks, Another quick card for LIM, round and round is the challenge, well I love circles :D so this one is purely fun

Circles............. balloons or bubbles, not sure but they look celebratory that's enough for me :D Inked through the Basic Circles stencil from Crafter's Workshop a stamp by Personal Impressions and viola!  
Now some sad news
love this, except mind would say "caffeine" or "diet mt. dew"
It's an unhappy Mustavcoffee writing this tonight, No more coffee for this little addict, it upsets the old insides, so from now on I'm coffee and caffeine free : ((( Very sad face. Now I know I'll live but it won't be the same without my daily cup of love :((((( LOL I know you'll understand my lovelies :D

Great to see you :D Hugs Gay x

It's a JOKE!

Hi Folks, Happy April fools day to you !!

Over at the CASology challenge  (do check it out ) I'm sure there will be many cards that are going to  make you giggle. The very talented team always come up with brilliant cards for the cues.
 This week I have the honour of joining them as Guest Designer because my card HERE was chosen by the lovely Gillian last week, thanks Gillian!

So today I'm attempting a joke
Jokes are the hardest cards of all, I think. I struggle with cards for men  but this was like pulling teeth LOL. 
Mr P has been running from the room in case I ask 'Now what's funny?' one more time :D I'm not really asking him, it's just me thinking out loud but I can imagine how annoying that is! Then he started calling me the comedy queen, oh for goodness sake !!! Well at least I kept it clean ;D

I'm absolutely sure you can do better than my meagre attempt, come join us :D

See you soon :D  Gay x
