Great to have you visit!
I have a super quick and sweet card to share with you today!
Some Odd Girl in rubber! You can find these over at Quixotic Paperie. This one is called 'Dancing Mae'! The fun sentiment also comes with the image. I love that...as you don't have to scrabble around looking for a matching sentiment! I also know that Elaine is waiting for some new rubber to arrive in her shop very soon from Some Odd Girl!!
I have coloured this image *mostly* in pencils. It is a real hybrid! The skin is coloured with copics as is her pink top. The rest is all done with prisma pencils. I love using pencils for her hair. If anyone is interested the prisma pencils combination I use for her brown hair is Beige, Light Umber, dark Umber and a very small touch of Black for the deepest shadows.
The papers are super scrummy and are Echo Park 'Springtime' Collection Kit.
I have also used from Sew Sweet:
Etsy shop today, if anyone is interested in purchasing it.
Have a super duper Friday and weekend!

Well hasn't the weather been just fine? I for one have not felt like spending very long indoors at all.....as we all know especially up in Scotland that it just won't last!
We have spent a long time in the garden, tidying up and then enjoying the fruits of our labour with manicured lawns and tidy flower beds, eating strawberries and meringues in the sunshine! Ahhhh that is what the summer holidays are all about!
So today I am sooooooo excited! My sister, her husband and her 2 kids are coming to stay with us for a few days ...why am I so excited.??? Well they have been in the Phillipines for the last 4 years! Whoop whoop....it is going to be so exciting to have them around for a few days :)
Anyway enough blethers, time to show you what I have been making!
This is a card using a gorgeous image I have seen around some other folk's blogs and really thought it was so gorgeous. It is from Wee Stamps and this one is called Rosie's Bike Ride. The image is coloured with copics and I have added a little sparkle to her flowers.
The papers are old ones I am using up from Three Bugs in A Rug. I was doing atidy up for my sister coming and I REALLY need to use up old papers before I buy ANY more new ones!
seam binding ribbon, button and twine are all from Sew Sweet. (P.s....make sure you check out her new fabulous ready made felt flowers!)
And finally the sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps which can be found at Quixotic Paperie.
This card will be available to buy in my *NEW* Etsy shop later today!

Well helloo everyone!
I wondered if I would get the chance to post again this week. It has been a busy one. This is our last week of term and last day of school for us in Scotland.....holidays officially start for us at 3:15pm! Whoop whoop!
There have been so many events to attend at school and so much to get organised. I saw my eldest be the Wizard in 'Wizard of Oz', and went to a Garden Party for my youngest's last day of Nursery, so it has all been good.
I have no idea how much I will get to post over the next 6 weeks...I will just have take it as it comes!
Some Odd Girl stamps from Quixotic Paperie. This one is called 'Smell the Flowers Tia'. She is coloured with copics and instead of making her into a card I stamped the sentiment (which comes with the image!) below and placed her into a photo frame. ( I removed the glass so you could see the 3D elements!)
I then took some yummy felt from Sew Sweet and used my Sizzix Die for 3D flowers cut to make the felt flowers. These are made in exactly the same in which you would make a paper flower. For these flowers I used 3 shades of pink felt to make my flowers. I used Baby Pink, Vintage Rose and Rose Pink.
I then added a fabby acrylic bead to the centre.
Thanks for your visit today!
This will be popping into my *NEW* Etsy shop later today!
