Hallo all! Hope you're having a great week. I am a very relieved and happy bunny. Mum had her operation on Friday and all went well!! Though it was very scary seeing her after the operation as she was in intensive care and hooked up to all number of tubes etc, she is now doing extremely well and may even be home at the weekend!! yay yay yay!!!

I managed to make a couple of cards yesterday to try to add to my Christmas stash plus I have a couple of birthday cards I made the other week to show you. So onto the show...

First up is an Elzybells image and sentiment. Apologies for the photo which I've done as it's the evening and I haven't got time to faff about with lights! I coloured her with copics, paper pieced her dress and added Glamour Dust to her wings and Stickles to her halo. The sketch is for Friday Sketchers.

I'd like to enter this into:
Crafty Pad- red and green
Lots to Do- favourite technique (paper piecing)

A little close up.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Elzybells); Copics; Nesties; Paper (Dovecraft, Crate Paper); Assorted cardstock; Snowflake die (Sizzix); Button & String

Next up is a card I made for my hubbie's birthday last week. The image and sentiment are also Elzybells ones, coloured with watercolour pencils. I paper pieced the cushion using some cardstock and added some shading to it and outlined the whole image with a copic. Do you love the giant ric rac?! This is another of my new Die-namics I showed you last post, I am so lovin them!

Awwww! Isn't he so cute?! So suitable for my softie hubbie!

I'd like to enter this into:
Belli - using embellies beginning with r- r is for ric rac

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Elzybells); Watercolour pencils; Copics; Paper (?); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Ric rac (Die-Namics); Brads (Stamp Addicts)

Next up is another card for my Mum's birthday which my sis asked me to make. Another Elzybells image- not intentional to have all Elzybells images today!!- coloured with copics and using sponged ink around the image. Papers are by My Mind's Eye. I created the aperture using a large nestie. In case you're wondering, Mumsie Moo is mine and my sis's nickname for my Mum!

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Elzybells); Copics; Vintage ink (Ranger); Papers (My Mind's Eye); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Sentiment (free); Gem (recycled); Computer generated sentiment); Bow (?)

And last up is a Riley card. Riley is coloured with copics. Paper is DCWV. I'm using the Sketch and Stash sketch. Snowflakes are made using a Woodware punch.
