"W" for Weirdo


This ATC was made for a group swap with Paper Delights.
I called her, Whatever, Weirdo.
Not my usual kind of thing, but, I thought she had some kind of appeal.

My Hero

I made this card for my next door Neighbor, Steve.
I call him my Hero because he has saved me so many times.
Last year when D.H. was away Ski-ing my outside pipes burst. he came to my rescue.
Last week I heard something upstairs, again my hero came to my rescue, It was a Bird.
It is a bit of fun, I just hope he will like it.

Shopaholic, stamp by Sugar Nellie, designed by Elizabeth Bell.
The stamps give a perfect Impression every time.
I used promarkers again, I think I am addicted to them.LOL
I have also used a new punch, one of the first I have ever been able to use, without hurting my hands.

ATC's Ladies


These two Lady ATC's are from a plate of unmounted stamps By Stampattack.
They make beautil cards, and also some lovely matching ATC.
Again no colouring only used coloured paper background.

Bad hair day.


I stamped this Lady with Black Stazon, then I used the heat tool to stop it bleeding, I used Distressed Inks to add some colour.
Background Paper is by Crafty Individuals.

This is a real cutie, they seem to be very popular at the moment.
Unmounted stamps, that really well, nice clear prints.
The design was Drawn by one of the Ladies on a group I belong to,
Nice one Jo. Stamps made by Stampattack, another friend from the group.
I have used coloured paper to stamp on, once again it saves me trying to colour in.

Elegant Lady with Large Hat.


Again I have used a Black and White Image, It just saves me trying to paint or colour the Image.
I try to make up by using colour else where.
This is a Stamp by Elusive Images, and stamps like a dream.
Always gives a clear Impression

Collage card

This card was made by me for a group Mingle.
Each one of the group members made a card, or a Canvas.
It was a fun mingle,,but I always seem to look at my card, then think I should have done it different.
Too late now, as it is already posted.
