Under The Weather

Stampin Up Sprinkles of Life


Using the sketch from - I can't remember where now!

CASology have the cue word "umbrella" and

SUonlyChallenges want Get Well cards.



My card's a bit like the weather we've been blessed with the last couple of days!

If only the clouds would dissipate .....


Make a Wish

Stampin Up Endless Birthday Wishes




LessIsMore want one layer cards with a "wishing" theme.

HappyLittleStampers CAS theme is colouring

AddictedToStamps want us to "make our mark" and

SeizeTheBirthday have "anything goes".


I used my AquaPainter brushes to colour in the image. Top Tip: if you gently squeeze the Stampin Up ink pad when closed, you will get a smudging of ink on the lid once it is opened. You can then pick up the ink with an AquaPainter.

Apologies for the hiatus in blog posts; I have been poorly and then my adorable, affectionate cat, Harley, fell ill and unfortunately passed away after 17 years of fun and loving times.

Miss him loads.

Stampin Up Watercolor Wings



AddictedToCAS want "blue"






This started out as a mixed media background with acrylic block spritzing, ink sprays, mica powders

(and pretty much snything else I could throw at it!).

Then I decided I didn't like the end result.

Then it languished on my desk for days

(I'm a terrible hoarder)

Then I had a brainwave & got out my Butterfly Thinlit dies


Now I'm happy :)

I shall skip over to Pixie's Playground with my snippet Butterfly ...
