Live every moment, Laugh everyday, Love beyond words.......

Hi there, twice in one day....... can you believe it!!!!!

I'm having myself some "me time" today so I've not only joined in at Allsorts Challenge this week but I've joined in with Stamping Sensations Challenge too!

Their theme this month is April Showers Bring May Flowers:-

I've taken quite some consideration time on this one building the scene as I went and obviously starting on a blank piece of card stock and working from the rain drops inwards through the scene.

Here we have some April showers and a wonderful new stamp of mine of the man and his dog from Rare Earth.  I've built the scene using the bridge (also Rare Earth) these are from the A Day at the Park set.  The trees are from Woodware and the flowers are from Rubber Dance.  The moody April sky is using brushos and the river and ground has been coloured using distress oxides and Zig pens.

There, April showers are bringing on the May flowers!

Enjoyed having some peace and quiet while building this one up bit by bit.

Hope you like it,
I think I've got just the birthday coming up for a man that would love this one.

Thanks for stopping by,

Something feminine..........

Hi there!

I found myself with a bit of rare spare time today so I thought I'd play along with the challenge over at Allsorts.  Their theme this week is Mother's Day or Feminine:-

What a liked about this challenge this week is that it took me a little way out of my comfort zone but I like a challenge and that's the whole point isn't it!!!??

So, getting all inky as usual, I used an absolutely beautiful stamp by La Blanche here (I have no idea what it's called as it just doesn't say!).  The background is done with brushos, the hair and dress are coloured with aqua pens and that border is also a lace border by La Blanche.

Finished with an organza bow I thought this would pass as my feminine entry for this week.

Hope you like it,

Thanks for stopping by,
