Blooming Fabulous

Good rainy afternoon everyone.

We managed to do our fireworks yesterday and they were really nice.  Burnt my finger lighting one though lol.  Nothing serious thankfully.  It was still drizzling so we ate our hotdogs and burgers indoors.  All in all a successful night.  Hope you all had a good time and stayed safe :)

I have a card that's sure to brighten this damp, grey day.....


It's another of my flowers in vase image that I won from Digi Stamp Boutique.  I went really fussy and girly for this one.  I have used ProMarkers to colour this in and my papers are LOTV NitWits.  The sentiment came with the images and my flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  My gems and ribbon are from The Works.

Create and Inspire - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes

I do, however, have a festive card to share.....


This cute bear is an old stamp I own from Wild Rose Studio.  I seem to use this every year and I must of had it for about 5 or 6 years.  Could be more actually.  I have coloured him in with ProMarkers and my papers are LOTV Nitwits.  I've put some glitter around the edge of the image but you can only just about see this.

Good afternoon crafty friends.  Hope your week is good so far.

We have another wonderful challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty and the theme this week is Monochromatic.  I really enjoyed designing something for this weeks challenge so please have a go and show us your monochromatic masterpieces!

Here is mine....


These glorious baubles are from Dee Dee's Digis.  The baubles and the sentiment are all part of a set called Ornamental (Icy).  The set also includes some lovely papers plus some more sentiments.  Each bauble was an individual file and I just copied them onto one page.  I then added the sentiment and printed it out.  I have used a Dark Grey ProMarker, black glitter and black ribbon to achieve my monochromatic look.
