In a world where you can be anything be kind


Another card featuring one of my favourite sentiment stamps, “In a world where you can be anything be Kind” I love swans, they are so elegant and majestic. We have a pair of beautiful swans  living on our local pond.

I used water colours to create my background, and various stamps. I added some brown fun flock to the reeds, to give them some texture. 

Thank you for visiitng, I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Courage Dear Heart



“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, "Courage, dear heart," and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan's, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”

 C.S. Lewis,  The Voyage of the Dawn Treader 

 I used watercolours  to create my background and versafine black ink to stamp over the top.

Golden Wings


Well the sunny weather has certainly returned with us here, with temperatures up to 31c !

I have been relaxing doing some drawing and painting. I used the Paperbabe template for my face and neck, I altered it a little and then drew the rest. I discovered that I am not too good at drawing fairy wings! I used a gold pen to draw in lots of little details on the wings to try and improve them !

I would like to enter her into this months Paperbabe Challenge “Gold” her earrings and hair pin thingy are also gold.

Let’s hope this lovely weather lasts, thank you for visiitng me today xx

Love the simple things



The weather outside doesn’t exactly look like beach weather today. So I thought I would share a beach themed card, and we can pretend that we are there!

I created my background with watercolours, and I  also used them to colour my little girl too.



To create the sand, I used acrylic paints in raw umber and white and mixed them together with some coarse marble dust.

I would like to enter Love the Simple Things into the following challenges.
