Fizzy Moontastic x

This weekend is whizzing by. Still, time flies when your having fun! Had the luxury of a whole afternoon crafting yesterday, hence two posts in two days. Couldn't wait any longer to stamp up my new Fizzy Moon image. Isn't he adorable??! I'm in love! lol. I've also used some papers from a new 6x6 pack by Trimcraft called 'Love Letter'. Very girly papers but such a lovely selection. Some double-sided, others are glittered.


I've coloured Fizzy with my Poly Chromo pencils and blended with Sansador. Do hope you like. I Think I'll enter this one into this week's Wild Orchid challenge.

Happy Sunday, whatever you've got planned x

Just Magnolia and Hanglar & Stanglar Challenge


Hello and Happy Saturday to you all. What a gorgeous day it is! I think today is the first day this year I've left the house without a scarf, coat and gloves on! lol.
I think it's a week of 'firsts' as I'm also entering my first card making challenge of the year - The Just Magnolia and Hanglar & Stanglar Challenge. This week there's a great, easy sketch to follow and here is my take on it...

I'm still working on the photography so excuse the dull pictures. My job has been just as dull this last week so I've been doing some reading up on photography and how to take better pics, what lighting and equipment to use. If you're like me and want to improve, there are some tips on how to create your own inexpensive light tent/studio set up. .on this website...http://www.digital-photography-school.com/

Let me know how you get on!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for visiting today.

Wedding Magnolias

Hello,

Been a long while since I last posted a card, but I have one, finally to show. I bought this Magnolia stamp at the Hobbycraft Show at the NEC back in November and this is the first chance I've had to use it! My friend is getting married in May so I've used it to on her wedding card. Sorry for such a rubbish picture. I wish I had been born with photography skills. I somehow feel that the card is lacking something but I don't want to ruin it by overdoing the embellies or by sticking a sentiment on the front somewhere. If anyone has any suggestions, feel free to comment.


The house is coming on nicely now (bloody should be after a year of renovating!). Finally got carpets down; just need a working bathroom and kitchen and we'll be in! So excited but still so much to do.

Jacque's Candy ending tonight!
