The image is Lili of the Valley, white card is from the scrap box, sentiment is Hero Arts, ribbon is American Crafts, flowers are from the jar on the shelf and the brads are from the brad box.

Purple Passion

The theme this week over at Allsorts this week is Purple Passion, I love purple so started on this card the other night.

Was wondering what else to add to it besides the papers, image and sentiment so just settled on the little purple gems and I think it's enough. 
The base card came from Whichcraft a few years ago, image and papers are Lili of the Valley, sentiment is Woodware and the white and lilac card are from the snippets box under the craft table.

The blue tits are busy to-ing and fro-ing feeding their young, we know they are busy when the washing line starts bouncing

Probably not the best pic but they don't stay still for too long.

Hope all my UK visitors have a lovely bank holiday weekend

Weekend makes

We had a great time at a workshop at Whichcraft on Saturday where we made these beauties using Woodware Stamps

When I got home I made a start on this card for the challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Then I noticed on Kevins blog that the Graph it colour challenge has Oranges and lemons for their theme so thought I would enter there too.

I have used a stamp from Lili of the Valley and coloured it with copics, the orange card is bazzill bling and the dotty and gingham paper has been in the box for quite some time.
The flower is an imagination crafts stamp stamped onto the bazzill and then cut out.
The pearls are Prima

Back from our travels

We have been away visiting family in Scotland for a few days, among other things while we were away we visited the Kelpies in Falkirk

It was a really interesting day out and we had a little laugh when we heard that all the parts were engineered and made in Yorkshire ready for assembly on site.

So having missed last weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge I settled down to do this weeks this afternoon. Here is the sketch

and here is my card

The image and the papers are Lili of the Valley, I used Copics to colour the image.
Base card, Kraft card circle and sentiment from Craftwork Cards, I have embossed the circle with an embossing folder which I think came from Samuel Taylors and  then brushed over it with Stampin up craft ink in Whisper white. The little stars are Studio Calico.
