I stretched the timescales in finally getting around to completing this free Copic class, a mere six years after signing up for it. It's always interesting to try a different approach to an established skill.
This is the second version of the Mother's Day card I made, and I have to say, this is my favourite of the two. I like the way it fills the card front. I've often had problems coming up with a layout I like when trying to fit a complete flower arrangement on a card:… Continue reading More Magnolia Sunshine
Well, I hadn't planned on taking a two-month break from blogging. And I had, vaguely, planned on catching up with writing up the things I hadn't blogged so I would have some scheduled posts as a buffer when I did start posting again. But here I am, on the 1st of June, typing away about… Continue reading Mother’s Day Magnolia Sunshine

The last Christmas card of the year and one of my favourites. One of my other half's nieces got a new kitty cat earlier this year and she has turned into a self-confessed crazy cat lady and absolutely adores Tommy. So, when I came across this digi stamp I just had to try and turn… Continue reading Christmas kitty

Why does everything that seems like a couple of years ago turn out to actually be four? The last two Covid years seem to take up no space at all in remembering when things happened. Anyway, four years ago I coloured a version of this digi stamp — it comes with three versions: one with… Continue reading Holly, mistletoe and a candy cane
Mice for my mum and bunnies for my sister-in-law — it's become traditional when it comes to card-making. Everyone else gets random subjects on their cards, but these two are very rarely altered; even when I gave mum a snowman card last year, I put a little mouse inside. This bunny is one of a… Continue reading Bunny wrapped up warm

The biggest problem I have when it comes to colouring digi stamps these days is deciding what to do for the background. Especially for images like this one which are crying out for a scene rather than a plain background. I used to be happy putting a bit of a shadow underneath, but then I… Continue reading Christmouse carols
