Hello Bloggers!

As usual its ages since I managed to post on my blog but at last I have got a bit of time so hopefully I will be able to make some cards!! It's been a difficult couple of months as Bob, my husband, has been recovering from heart surgery and consequently has not been able to do much and wanted to go out each day to break the monotony! We have run out of garden centres to visit, and he has even been happy to go clothes shopping with me which is a first! We've also had more coffees and lunches out than I can count which is not good for my waistline! However he is much better now and can drive again so life is getting back to normal.

For my card today I have used the wonderful stamps by Ryn. I love these stamps and am gradually building up my collection. Can't wait for my next order to arrive!

The background has been sprayed with Dylusions inks - it was definitely Lemon Zest but not sure which other colour I used!  Then stamped with the Leafy Branch and Raindrop Set. The flower is African Daisy which has been coloured with Promarkers and some black glitter in the centre. They have been raised up on stick fixers. The "Happy Birthday" is a Chocolate Baroque stamp.

Have a good day

Beautiful Bubbles!

Hi there!

Have not been able to post anything for a while but being as my new stamps have arrived from Ryn I thought I really must have a play!

I sprayed the background with Dylusions Inks - Cut Grass and Vibrant Turquoise and then stamped the Sea Bubbles set with Versafine Onyx Black. I then used the Rising Bubbles stamp (which is the first of my new stamps). The Koi were stamped on white card, coloured with Promarkers and then placed in position.  I finished off with Glossy accents on the Rising Bubbles (although you can't see it in the photo) and the white spots on the Sea Bubbles I have done with my Posca Pen.  All the wonderful stamps are from Ryn. Can't wait to try more of my new ones so watch this space!!
