October Rose - Mitzi Sato-Wiuff

Hi again

I have been trying to catch up and use all the images I have been colouring and get them made into cards LOL.  So here is another one to peek at.  I coloured her up using prismacolour pencils and promarkers.  I am actually not all that happy with her hair but I thought ... What the hell!  The papers are from Raspberry Road.  The doily, butterflies and pearls I coloured using a promarker, cardinal red I think.  The roses came from Mulberry crafts and the carnation from WOC.  The ribbon is from my stash.  I used alot of stickles on this one too LOL.  The inside compliments the front.  I didn't want a white space to write on in this one as it looked too out of place.

Mo Manning - Baby Girl

Hi all

I'm sorry I have not been around for a few days but have been busy with life LOL.  On friday I had a friend visit me and it was brilliant to catch.  She is also an avid crafter and her work is beautiful.  In fact you can find her work here so please take the time out to peek.  

Today I am posting a commision for a new baby girl card for a colleague at work.  I love this image from Mo Manning, she is so cute.  I coloured her with promarkers and prisma pencils.  The backing paper is from Raspberry Road. The ribbon, pearls and teddy button are from my stash.  The flowers are from WOC lavished with glitter glue to give them something a little extra. The die cut corners are by Whimsey and I also used Nestabilities by Spellbinders.  The inside of card compliments the front as usual.

Sister Love - Darcys Diaries

Bride and Groom - Mo Manning

Evening everyone

I have been home all day as suffered a migraine most of night so needed to rest.  Mind you I did not had much enthusiasm to do anything however I managed to finish this card off.  This is a commission for someone at work and needed to be finished by the weekend.  

The backing papers are from Raspberry Road.  i used spellnders framing the image which I finished off with pearl gems from my stash.  Also from my stash is the mini doily, ribbon, pearls and cystals on stems.  The flowers are from WOC.  The corner was cut from a memory box die and covered with Tim Holtz's picket fence crackle paint and smothered in glamour dust.

Jack and Ginger - Mo Manning

Good morning all (and goodness is it early or what LOL) Just woken up and thought I would post this before going to work.  

My father and stepmother have been married 25 years this week so I thought I best put a card together.  I have not wanted to make one due to my Mums death however forced myself last night.

I use Mo Mannings' Jack and Ginger - gorgeous old couple in live huh.  So sweet.  I am unsure as to where the backing papers are from as I have had them printed out for a while.  I will post on here when found.  The sentiment I made on word.  The flowers are from WOC and the corner die is Marianne Creatables.  I used glitter glue and the pearls and ribbon are from my stash.  I coloured the image using promarkers and prisma pencils.

Hummingbird - Kelly Rhodes, Inked Paws

I have put together another card using the talented Kelly Rhodes from over @ Inked Paws.  The image is Hummingbird and can be purchased on her site @ Facebook. (Inked Paws)

I used Prismacolor pencils for the image and added gems along with a feather on her costume.  I used a Whimsy die for the corners and added some stickles to shine them up.  The backing papers are from Raspberry Road.  

The flowers are from WOC and the ribbon, gems and tiny crystals from my stash.  The sentiment I created on my PC.  The miniature doilies I purchased from Tumdee and the crystal heart buttons are from the Stamp Basket. The inside reflects the front.

I really enjoyed making this card firstly because it for a very good friend who moved away (I did ask if it she did due to me LOL)and secondly I love the image.

Anyway thats it for now and try to be back later.....

Barons Daughter - Kelly Rhodes Inked Paws

I was so excited to get this card done as I love the image.  I have only just found this talented artist and have treated myself to a few of them.

This one is called Barons Daughter and I coloured her mainly with prismas pencils and a little promarkers for her skin.  I used plenty of glamour dust on the roses in the image as well as the WOC flowers.  The corners are from Whimsy dies.The tiny doily from my stock and cannot for the life of me where it was from and I so want some more so if you know where I can get them please let me know LOL.  Not sure about the sentiment either LOL.  The inside sentiment comes from Card Making Downloads.  The ribbon is from my stash as are the pearl gems.  The bow I made on my bowmaker.  So handy and couldn't do without it LOL.  Oh yes I managed to sneek in a tiny feather too..... Oh and glittered butterflies .....

Anyway the sentiment is from Card Making Downloads, the gems from my stash. the papers by Michelle R Designs and the corner die, once again by Memory Box.  Oh and of course the flowers from  WOC. This has been entered into the following

Spring Fairy Aleta - Mo Manning

Good evening everyone

I have been out today for lunch with my Dad and stepmum... I actually felt really sad but was good to spend time with Dad.  All I kept thinking about was my Mum, gosh this is hard.  When I decided to make up another card I thought this angel could be for my Mum.I might even send it up to her by helium balloon when I scatter her ashes. 

Anyway onto the ingredients of this creation.  The image is Spring Fairy Aleta by Mo Manning and she was coloured using Promarkers.  I used lots of glamour dust on her as you can see. (Ihope!) The sentiment came from my stash and I cannot remember where I got it from so I apologise for that.  The corner die is by Memory Box and I have fallen in love with their collection.The pearl gems are from my stash.  The backing papers are by Michelle R Designs. In love with those also.  The roses are from WOC.  The inside compliments the front.  I have stamped the swirls and added lots of pearl gems.

I will be entering this into the following challenges

Hi all 

This is a very short post as still have much to do with Mum's place.  I have manage to squeeze a couple of plain cards into my schedule though.  I will probably be using them for the people who helped me sort stuff out as a thanks.

There are no backing papers, blah blah blah etc etc ect to mention so is very simple.  The flowers were coloured using copics, promarkers and prisma pencils and the gems from my stash.The scroll pattern on one of the insides is a stamp from my stash.


There ya go... SIMPLES LOL

Today is the day I lay my mum to rest and to be honest I am really dreading it.  The last Mothers day card I made her will be travelling with her to the other side and I hope it will bring her much comfort. She hung on til we celebrated Mothers day and my sons 30th birthday the next day and she passed away the day after that. I went to see her in the Chapel of Rest yesterday.  On the one hand I am glad I did as it compounded to me it was just the vessel her spirit used whilst she was here and on the other hand it also compounded that she is no longer here so mixed emotions for me.  I will be reading a poem in her memory today and I thought I would share it with you all.


When tomorrow starts without me
And I'm not there to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today
While thinking of the many things
We didn't get to say

I know how much you love me
As much as I love you
And each time you think of me
I know you'll miss me too

So when tomorrow starts without me
Don't think we're far apart
For everytime you think of me
I'm right here in your heart

I think this is so lovely and I really hope I can get through it without crying.  Anyway I need to go prepare myself for the farewell.

I will try to get back here as soon as able.  Thank you my fellow crafters for taking the time to read my profile.  Have a good day all
