Lieu days are great!

Hello everyone

anyone who has read my previous posts will know i worked all weekend, now, while this sucks, it does mean I have a day off in the week to make up for it, and this meant a whole crafting day for me!

Its my Mother-in-law's 70th Birthday next week, so I've been busy making her cards and I also took the time to colour and make up a mega cute tiddly inks card.

Here's two of my several projects today:

this is Fairy wishes from Tiddlyinks.  Coloured with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils.  The back ground was made with a torn piece of copy paper, distress inks and my duster brush. mounted onto black card, with the Tiddlyinks sentiment too.

I'd like to enter this one into:

Aud Sentiments - cute plus a sentiment
Creative knockouts - Sentimentally yours
One sweet challenge - things with wings
613 Avenue Create - anything goes
Through the purple haze - Spring colours

For my Mother-in-Laws card, I cut out the background shapes on my silhouette. then i distressed the egdes to roughen them up a bit.  The background was then made using Victorian velvet and tea dye distress inks and various stamps such as splodges and script.

I used some fibres and various die cuts to make the ivy and the large flower, then flowers from my stash for the rest.  The frame is a paper clay one and the sentiment is a Simon Says stamp from a set. finished with some butterfly stamps from HunkyDory and some stickles.

I'd like to enter this one into:

Crafting by designs - Focus on sentiment
Fab and funky - flora and Fauna
Whimsy inspires - anything but a square card
Card and scrap - flowers

Two very different cards - but I like them both for different reasons.

Thanks for stopping by - please leave me some love in the comments box - it makes my day to get those little emails that are not junk!
