Guilty conscience ;)

Yip I've been shopping for crafty goodies, so thought I'd have a go at finishing a pack full of scraps!  Nearly made it with these 3, but there's still a few wee bits that still need using up.

Card 1: Hoppy Birthday
I found this sentiment when I was rooting round my stamps looking for something else, and then spent another 20 minutes looking for this froggy stamp!  Can't think of the maker, if I remember I'll add it in tomorrow.
Coloured with watercolour pencils; clear gloss added to his eyes; Wink of Stella to his paler green spots.  Gold, green and pink sequins from stash.

Card 2: Missing You Doggy
This is another stamp that I can't remember the make of.  His expression is kinda like our wee Ruby today who had an unexpected visit to the vet and ended up getting a tooth out.  Think she's in a bit of a huff with us now :(

Watercoloured BG.  Clear gloss to the dog's nose.  Paper Smooches heart die.  Gold peel off strip and gold sequin from stash.
  • Layout inspired by Michele's card over at the Muse Challenge #147.  I copied her strip down the side and the stitched die cut image.
  • CASology #179 - simple
  • My Time to Craft #312 - friendship
Card 3: Party Cow
Now this stamp I do know ... def a Penny Black oldie!  Coloured with watercolours.  Clear gloss added to her wellies and horns.  Green sequins from stash.  Sentiment from MFT.


  1. Three wonderful and very playful designs! I like the use of color in each card and your images are beyond cute and nicely colored! Thanks so much for dropping them into our mailbox here at 613 Avenue Create!
