Poppies and Butterflies

I've had these Hero Arts Poppy Stamps for a little while and ummed and aahed with them, tried different colours, tried decoupage but at the end of the day poppies are RED!!!!!!!     The butterfly is a Cuttlebug die set and I decorated it with some little black gems.   I coloured the poppies with my new Inktense pencils, which are well and truely yummee x

Ruby Ruby Ruby and not a Poppadom to be seen...

My cousin 6,000 times removed (Spanish families are VERY close) is celebrating her 40th Wedding Anniversary in October and in true tradition there's a BIG family party.    The papers are from the INdulge series www.delishdesigns.com and Bazzill and I used the Quickutz heart dies.   The scallop ovals using the Stampin Up punches and the sentiment was computer generated.    It's hard to tell from the photo but I cut round the hearts to make a heart shaped corner - does that make sense?

A Waistcoat for the Seagulls....


I think these little waistcoats are ideal for a man - I've made several of them and decorated them with various football logo paper.   The waistcoat template is from WS Designs.

This girl just lurves Orange....

It's my brother's partner Steph's birthday this week - unlike me she really likes yellows and oranges and all those citrus colours - I personally can't stand them, so for me to make a card using these colours was a bit of a challenge - sorry, but they just don't do it for me.

The stamp is one of my favourites and the top page has a hidden secret little message book.

Back to pinks and purples tomorrow.... phew!
