Never stop chasing Rainbows

Hello my lovelies I do hope this post finds you well. Today is my turn to share my Mo Manning inspiration with you again today(yes it's been 2 weeks already!
So yesterday (well today really as for when I'm typing this) was my Mother in Laws birthday. I had to make her 2 cards and as Mo's images are always my go-to images then I thought I would use them for my inspiration makes lol.
The card is 8x8" and the papers are freebies from Pixel Scrapper if you haven't been to the site before what are you waiting for there are loads of freebies and the designs are beautiful.

The image is called Fall and I have coloured him in with polychromo pencils. I distressed the edges and inked with distress inks. then made the embellishments (not the flower though) the leaves were die cut, shaped and coloured with various inks. Then died and added to the card the sunflower I think I got from the range in a pack. 

So there you have my card for today. I hope you like it and I'll see you very soon. 

Happy Crafting

3D brusho butterflies

Hello, my lovely people, I hope you are all well. It certainly looks like the end of summer is upon us and Autumn is snapping at its heels. I hate the colder months wish we had the summer we had this year all year round that would do me just grand.
Anyway, on to it, crafting has been for me lately I just haven't got the enthusiasm which is why I have not been posting many makes. And ones I have made seem to have taken me 3 or 4 times longer to make than usual. (mental issues and physical pain are a mojo killer for sure)
But I do have a few to share with you now for a launch that was over the bank holiday weekend. 
The show was selling a digi usb that was being launched it has lots of cute images,steampunk, sentiments something for everyone, so over the next few days, I will share my cards I made using some of these images hope you like them.

This is one of my favourite makes using this collection. I took one of the beautiful butterflies and printed it off 3 times on my card blank along with the greeting. Once printed I scored and cut to size I needed. 

Then I printed about 9 other butterflies on watercolour paper, fussy cut them out then coloured with brushos. I then layered them up to give a good 3D effect and added a body made flower stamens and pearls then added them to the card.

70 years as Husband & Wife

Hello my lovelies I do hope you're all well and enjoying the weather although it's a tad colder here today :-( but I guess it has to come to an end at some point but I do LOVE the sunny hot days
Well it's that time again for me to share my Friday inspiration with you. And what an inspiration I have for you this week. It's not that I have made a blinder of a card or coloured the image Amazingly it's the reason behind the card(  all links will be at bottom of post)
 Next month is grandparents in law's 70th (   yes I said 70th, 70 years marriage ) So My MiL (  it's her parents ) asked if I'd make a card for them from her. 
So this is what I came up with hope you like it 

For my card I have used papers from Polkadoodles which I distressed and added to the card then made a paper doily from a die I have which I cut in half and added to the top and bottom corner.

The image is a merge of Aunt Helen ( she still reminds of the old woman in the home alone film lol)
I coloured them both with my polychromos and kept the card pretty CAS I printed the sentiment along with images.
I distress the edges of the image and then masked off the image and coloured the background with distress inks.

To embellish the card I wanted to again keep it simple but wanted some hearts so I die cut a few sizes and then embossed them. I didn't have any platinum embossing powder so I made my own with a mix of silver, holographic and a pale gold. I think it turned out quite cool.

I finished off with the insert in my usual style using the same paper on the front then adding a matt and the verse.
And there you have it.

Big Guy Jogging

Hello mo fans, yes I know it's Friday 13th but hey I'm back with another Mo make for you.
 Today's make is one I have done for my Hubby as it's his birthday tomorrow. He keeps saying he wants to start running but, because he has bad knees it's kind of putting him off, so I thought this might motivate him lol
  I have used Big Guy Jogging for my image coloured with my Polychromo pencils. I kept the card pretty CAS just adding a couple of buttons as embellies. 

Anyway, hope you like it and I will see you soon with some more makes. Have a great weekend
