Mothers day card #1

I'm back again - 2 days on the trot, never heard of from me I know.

I have got a stash of cards to share which I haven't posted yet though so there's a few more to come.

This card I made for one of my mother in laws (yes I have 2 lol).

The stamp is a flower soft stamp which came in a set, I bought it years ago and have only just inked her up.

She has been coloured with pro & flex markers as always.

I love the papers on this card, ive almost used the entire pack! they are new from dovecraft and are called "tea time".

Everything else is from my stash.

I have decorated the inside to match the front.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my humble blog and for any comments you may leave.

Hugs xx cara xx

Hello again!!!!

Hello to the few people still following me, I've finally returned from a very long break from blog land. Sadly life and work have both been in the way of my blogging for months now. I seem to have finally clawed my way back though and now have a few cards to share..... I will spread them over a few posts though!

My first card to share is one I made "just for fun". I received my new limited edition spring promarkers on sunday and challenged myself to colour an image using only these! What a breakthrough! I loved having only 6 colours to think about, it took away all off the complications of shading lol anyway lets see what you think - I love this little Lilly wedding stamp which I stamped onto Neenah, I didn't use any DP's on this card, instead I used centura purl card stock in white and silver and simply matted and layered using a Martha Stewart punch. The flowers are from wild orchid crafts and the ribbon and lace are from my stash.
I really hope you like my creation, I promise I will try to post more often from now on.

Thanks for looking, love cara xx
