To a Special Teenager card (Make It Crafty image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love this image from Make it Crafty. I coloured her up and then looked for papers to match, not my usual way of doing things lol. Luckily I think these papers fitted her perfectly and I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I embossed the Birthday sentiment and distressed most of the papers.

New Home Bears (Lili of the Valley stamps)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I used some oh-so-cute bears from Lili of the Valley to create my new home card today. They come in a set of 3 called Posy Trio and they are each in a circle so this involved a little bit of cutting out and careful positioning in the window so it wasn't too obvious. I have a lovely brick embossing folder which I used and cute window and banner dies to add to the scene.

Time for Spring mixed media girly card (The Greeting Farm stamp)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's my second mixed media card where I blended green, orange and yellow inks in a circular fashion then lightly sprayed it with water.
