Ryan's birthday card

 Hi all, back again, and now the darker evenings are creeping in I'm determined to get back into my cardmaking!  And I mean it this time 😉

I've dug out this oldie from High Hopes, he's always a pleasure to colour.  I inked in a touch of green for the background and then stamped over it with this lovely burlap stamp from Gummiapan that doesn't see ink often enough!

And here's a wee photo of Molly as I haven't shared one for a while.  She absolutely LOVES balls and will steal any she comes across , so she was delighted to find this one when we were out for a walk.  Unfortunately for Molly it was actually a potato!!  One ball she didn't bring home 🤣

Christmas Poinsettia

 Hi all!  I've totally got out of the way of blogging and have been really bad at visiting all my bloggy buddies, I'm so sorry! My crafty mojo has been totally missing too... I'm blaming our miserable summer when it seemed to rain almost every day!  The sun has finally made an appearance so I'm hopeful my mojo does too 😉

Anyway, I'm here this evening with a wee Christmas card with some freebie stamps from a craft magazine.  I'm not 100% loving it ... if I was making it again I'd move the poinsettia down a bit and maybe decoupage another flower on top (I might still do this).  Coloured with polychromos and clear gloss added to the flower and glitter to the berries.

Simon Says Stamp Monday - stamp it
