Cuddly Buddly digi

Todays card is made with a really pretty digi stamp. Although my colouring still isn't as good as I would like...I am still enjoying working with digi's and this one is from Cuddly Buddly. Printed on watercolour paper, coloured with promarkers which hobbycraft have on sale at the moment, and embellished with flowers and leaves from w.o.c. the bud roses coloured with promarkers. The greeting is from my craft studio, swirls from my cricut with home decor cartridge and the image cut out with my cuttlebug. The ribbon and dragonfly are from my stash. The background paper from a selection called 'Neighbourwood'. Colin and I have been away all week staying with Lisa and her children. Manwai is away for the week and as Lisa is five weeks away from having a baby we stayed overnights just in case. I am pooped! I sat down in front of the telly last night still with a rather bent halo on my head. I had to sit down as the children had thought it a good idea to grab hold of my legs when I tried to pass them. The next thing I knew I was tumbling (I would have said flying but really it was more of a tumble) through the air to land heavily on my knees. It was rather like in star wars when those huge mechanical vehicles were stomping through the desert till Luke or Aniken wrapped the cables round the legs and they came crashing down. Not very elegant! I am home for the moment tucking into a slice of Lemon Drizzle cake. I think I deserved it. Anyway, the weekend is here, Yippeeeee

Sweet Blossom

This is one of my favourite digital stamps from Wee Stamps. She is called sweet blossom. I printed the image onto watercolour paper and coloured her and her little friend with promarkers. I used my cuttlebug to cut the circle round the image and my cricut for the swirls...home decor design. The sentiment, using my craft studio, was cut again with the cuttlebug. These digital stamps are a delight to work with, and, whilst I am not experienced with the shading etc, I do so enjoy curling up and colouring...I wish I had tried them sooner.
It is quite mild out today but dull and drizzly so I think I will be making boxes and inserts for the cards...after I have done loads of housework of course (that's in case Colin reads my blog) Anyway, I hope today is a good day for you. Keep warm, love Sue x
