Water Colour Cards

Good Evening everyone hope your having a lovely Saturday

Well I thought I'd give my hand to some water colouring...I bought some stamps the other day from C&C the fairy doodles and wow they are lovely.......and a good size...when I became a member of C&C I got a £10 gift voucher so when I purchased the Fairy Doodle stamps I went for the multi buy and used my voucher so saved a few pennies.

I've also bought some stamps from the Whiff of Joy Stamps these are fabulous, but I think I need to practice my water colouring and buy some pretty papers before I attempt them.
(Sorry Bev not done them yet.)

So I've been having a little bit of a play today, to take my mind off Ian going into hospital tomorrow, (didnt' work)

Here are a couple from my Fairy Doodle cute are these.

These ones are a digi image from Sarah Kay..
I just love these they are sooo cute

Thank you for popping by
All comments are greatly appreciated

Hospital and Card

Good Afternoon everyone.

Well we've finally been notified this morning that Ian has his admission date to go into Freeman for his hospital procedure........he's not pleased because it's this Sunday he goes in......he'll have tests done first with him being on Warfarin to get his RNI down to the right level...then he'll have his procedure. He thinks he'll only be in a couple of days but I think it will be more like two weeks.....bless he's waited since August last year to have this hopefully they'll sort it and make his life a little easier, since he had his intestines removed in 2007 you know he never complains ....he's my hero.

I've only got one card today that I finished last week another wedding bookatrix..Chocolate Brown this time .......I love doing these but when they are all the time I get a bit bored with them........I just want to play at times, I've got two wedding cars to do (Arty Farty Colin Car) well can't really grumble after all I'm making some pennies to put back into my craft kitty..

Thank you for taking the time to visit my Blog

What a lovely surprise.....

Good Evening everyone...........sorry not posted the last couple of days

Today when I came in from work I had a lovely surprise in the was a card from my very special friend Janeygrey from the forum.....a Thinking of You card how lovely was that....I thought I'd post it for you to see as she is a very talented crafter.......

Thank You Janey I'll treasure it

I also had another surprise.......well I was waiting for them Whiff of Joy and Ticket Stamps
After seeing so many beautiful cards made with these stamps and I must admit Bev inspired me I just had to have some.
so I'll be having a play with them (if I ever get the time)
I'm not going to say the finished cards will be any good when I've made them ......but hey I'll give it a try.

I went to Hobbie Craft Tuesday and was really disappointed....didn't think much of it. But I did manage to get a new guillotine

Thank you for dropping by have a lovely weekend.
