Just Ducky

Another fabulous day today, too hot to be outside really so I spent it in my craft room where it is lovely and cool.  This is Duck Duck from Mo's Digital Pencil - not only do I love the image with this little wide-eyed cutie but just love the little duck right at the edge with his tail poking out of the water! And it has been the perfect weather for messing about on the water.  Oh and the sentiment comes with the image along with another!
I was a very lucky mummy to receive a voucher for Crafts U Love for my recent birthday so I added to my Marianne collection with the Chains, Dots and Hearts strings - full list of Marianne Products below:

Basic Stitched Circle Die Set - CR1360
Chains, Dots and Hearts String Dies - CR1392
Stitched Flowers - CR1428
Ducks - LR0410

I coloured Duck Duck without knowing what papers I would use but these from  a My Mind's Eye set  called Sunny couldn't have been more perfect.
Looking forward to a few days in London from Friday - can't wait to see Emily and more family and friends- leaving Nick here to hold the fort!

Sketch Challenge at Passion for Promarkers

Morning folks, time for a new challenge at PFP and today we have a great little sketch for you- sometimes these make it so easy to design your card!  and, as we're being sponsored by Ppinky Dolls for this week's challenge, we were lucky enough to be given one of their images to work with.  I've chosen Abi's Love - and they really are a delight to work with as there is so much shading that half the work is done for you!

Happy Father's Day - Pigeons

This is my Father's Day card for my lovely Daddy who is an avid birdwatcher although he has been rescuing Hedgehogs and Hoglets this weekend!  Pigeons from Mo's Digital Pencil was therefore perfect for him!
The branches and big bird are from Marianne - details below, and the sentiment and tag are from Stmapin Up.

Petra's Circle with Bird die set - LR0457
Branch and Flower Die set - LR0256 
We've had a lovely barbeque this afternoon with Nick's mum, Holly, Harry and Violet.  Only thing missing was our Em but she was with us in spirit and she called!
Going to be hot again tomorrow - Summer!!

Mo's Let Love Grow

My card today is for a a lovely lady from my craft group- and it's her birthday today - Happy Birthday Susi!  Let Love Grow is just a perfect image for her as she is an organic flower grower and also makes handcrafted flowers for local coffee houses and cafes!  Clever lady and the image is the spit of her too- I'm not sure if she realised a few weeks ago that I was colouring this up in front of her taking note of her colouring!!  
The papers are a bargain set I  got by Pebbles and the scalloped lacy edged die is from the Marianne Creatables Die Set - LR0180. Think the sentiment is Hero Arts although I've had it so long I can't be sure! 
It also happens to be our Wedding Anniversary today - 33 years -eeekk!!

Passion for Promarkers Birds, Bugs and Butterflies - New challenge!

Morning from a wet and miserable Cumbria!
Luckily my card is a bit more cheerful and it's for our new challenge starting today at PFP.  The theme is Birds, Bugs and Butterflies as chosen by our lovely Shelly.
My image is called Feed The Soul from Mo's Digital Pencil - what a beauty!
The sentiment is a new one from Woodware and it comes with the little bee and a beehive!  The tiny butterfly is a tiny stamp from my stash.  Can't believe all the flowers I used but it just looked better and better the more I added and the enamel dots are from Marianne Designs.

As always, my fab teamies have made some fabulous cards with this theme, so check them out here.

Our generous sponsor this week is Petal Lu and they are offering one lucky winner a 30% discount voucher to spend in their online store.  They have some very gorgeous flowers in their shop, if you haven’t already visited the store why not pop over and take a look, you will definitely want some once you have seen them.

She's Still got It

I love this image from Mo- She's Still Got It is her name, and she comes with the sentiment above and a couple of others - bargain!!

I coloured her with my trusty PMs and layered her up on these gorgeous NitWit papers from Lili of The Valley.  I cut the Memory Box music score die to make it look as though she it was going behind her.  And finally there's a fabulous Marianne Die for the doily edges - LR0455- Creatables Classic Border die.
That's it for today - Happy 1st of June!!

Hugs, Juliexx
