jody card

This card uses a Mo Manning stamp it is coloured with copic pens  but has a chalked background which on the scan looks a bit patchy but actually it isn't it is quite subtle. I have (reluctantly) mounted it on Elusive Images paper, i say reluctantly because this paper is the sort you never want to use, its there for just looking at because it is so lovely

fairy at 50

I like these little fairies from Buzz Craft, they are coloured with water colour pencils and some glamour dust on the wings. the H and B are covered in Glossy Accents.
I'm in my craft room now recovering from two things, last night I got up to answer the phone and have one of those 'cartoon' moments when you feet slip from under you and seem to go up in the air befor you are deposited heavily on your bottom. why is it on cartoons they recover quickly whilst I - probably because of ny great age - can barely move?
second thing i'm recovering from is sitting through the second home game of Sunderland FC in one week, still no win ahh well

slashin' around


I have been following Jak Heath's blog (Crafters Kitchen) and she has got me hooked on Mo Manning's Digi-Stamps which are excellent for colouring with Copics, I don't need to emboss and the ink doesn't bleed. this is my attempt.
Now I am fairly new to paper-crafting and card making, my earlier attempts are still in a box and will probably never see the light of day again, however i'm becoming more confident and thought  it was about time I put a card on my blog.
