Micey Nice me thinks

What a lovely weekend the sun was shining and it seems like Summer again. Im off on a days holiday today! Hurrah you say but the blimen workmen are outside diggin up the road with numatic drills, an now its stinks of tar, I hate that smell.........

Had a few cards to make so I thought I would have a Great Impressions day yesterday.
A new home card which I always seem stuck for ideas on. I used watercolour pencils and a few scraps of paper mounted it on one of the lovely craftwork cards which I chalked in yellow.
A get well card for a friend who has just come out of hospital from a operation, its not really a case for tissues and soup but I just love this stamp. Again I just chalked and paper pieced.

Bears today I think.

Hello and what a lovely day it has been.
I think it my be a beary day today as I seem to have picked all the bears to do. I had a lovely day at the Chickenshack yesterday but it was very quiet, OK yes I was there! but I got lots done and they are all such a nice bunch and make everyone welcome. My mum came yesterday as she is also a crafter.

Forever friends bear with a very big prezzie. I decoupaged the present the bow and flowers. Coloured with Marvey le Plume pens, I even made the flower from a daisy punch done twice and inked the edges and made the centre which was embossed but does not show in the picture. Paper was a mixture of assorted Doodlebug designs.
Penny black bear is'nt he just soo cute, I do love him. I coloured him with pencils, paper was stamping up but I don't know the name and the stamp was from a woodware clear set.

Mummies monsters were sleeping again, and still are Shhhhhhhhh!. So I am off to make the most of the peace and quiet. I bet it wont be for long.

Something Different

A pretty little box that Stamping Caz made, I nicked the measurements and here is mine.
Sorry the pictures are not very good.
I used a piece of A4 card, Penny Black Modesty stamp and stamping up ink Bashful Blue.
