7 Feb 2015


Hi all, gosh it was another very hard frost last night everything is rock solid, the birds are down having their daily suet pellets so they should be happy.  I took Jess out yesterday, wearing my new wellies, and it was very slippery, caution was necessary most of the time.  The sun was shining but bitterly cold.
I haven't been too well this last week but I have still been colouring and making a few cards and this is one of them.
I have used one of my brand new digi images that I purchased from Sweet Pea stamps, I am particularly fond of Conie Fong and this is one of her images, it is called Precious.
I bought a set of Chameleon pens quite awhile ago but have yet to use them, my interest has been renewed seeing them featured and the pick of the week on Create and Craft I think I might be taking them out of the box soon, but for now I am so used to using my Graph It Markers that I used them to colour this image.
The papers I have used are from LOTV, i used my new Lawn Fern Grass Edge Die for the border around the card then I topped it with gold line stickers.
I also used my new Memory Box Stitch Die circle, I have loads of dies but rarely use them, however, I have been so inspired by the awesome work that I see while on my visits to you all that I decided to get some of them out, it was also an excuse to buy a few new ones while I was at it, lol.
I used my SU heart punch, a little daisy punch, some pearls and butterfly punch.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
There is certainly a lot of love around in blogland at the moment and I am sending you all some, you are all such a big inspiration to me and enrich both my life and crafting, a big thank you.
see you later

This is beautiful Lorraine, such a sweet image and fabulous colouring. You have chosen such pretty papers and embellishments - a gorgeous card.
I have the Chameleon pens and must admit I have not really used them much, found them quite difficult to colour larger spaces but good for small areas.
