I've been Cuttlebugging ..

.. .. .. And I broke a 'B' Plate .. I searched & searched & searched for some replacements, & finally found some, but it certainly wasn't easy .. People, all over the place, were "out of stock" .. I'm wondering if they knew something which us ordinary users don't know ? ..

Anyway - here's my card .. The front of the card was CB'd, then I used an EK Border Punch to the top & the bottom .. Next I applied some colour to the raised bits of the embossing, using some Water Soluble Wax Pastels .. It was then lightly spritz with water, and patted dry with some kitchen roll .. I then glued some coloured thin card to the back of the front of the card ..

The label was made using the same EK Border Punch, then it was folded in half, and glued to the bottom of the front of the card ..

The inside of the card is a piece of 160gm white card .. I stamped the image, which was one from Polka-Doodles, Pen & Paper Circle, Issue 2 freebie (now out of stock), then sponged the rest of it, using a Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Dried Marigold) ..

A With Love Card

A friend, who had had a bereavement, needed a cheer-up card, so I made her this ..

It was done on the Cuttlebug, and painted with watercolour wax pastels - and lacquered .. Then mounted on some fancy paper, then put on an A5 card .. The corners were punched using a MS Corner Punch ..

Sorry, but the scanner doesn't show all the fancy punching ..

Blossom on the Bough

I found these individual flowers in a Scrap Kit & decided to put them together in a Cluster .. The square background to the Cluster, came about from a page of Paint Samples .. Each tiny square was a different colour (originally red, orange & fuscia pink) here transformed with a simple "colour" change .. 

The poem is from A.E. Houseman's "A Shropshire Lad" ..

Splashing In The Rain

Seems, of late, that I'm always using Pink .. LOL .. Not intentional, I assure you, but pink, in this case, did lend itself to the photograph I was using - I picked out the colours from Lily's skirt .. I'll try and vary it for the next entry .. LOL .. 

This little girl lives in a country where they only get rain like this two or three times in a year, so when they had a thunderstorm, all the children, including Lily, thought it would be fun to go splashing around ..
