Toad-ally Awesome card

Hi there friends, I am back with my usual card for the 'Less is More' challenge again. This time it's a recipe and 'Take 3',.... e.g. take 3 words or 3 images or 3 colours, or 3 patterns (something where you have 3 of an item).
I decided to use this cute frog, my three things are.... the frog, the hearts and the sentiment, or the 3 hearts or the 3 colours, pink and black ( if you are calling black a colour which I am lol). Anyway lots of three's there I think!
Wow......shock horror! flowers and no water colouring either...must be a first from me for a while lol.

It's very very windy here this weekend but no rain today for a change, hope you have good weather wherever in the world you are.Of course, enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.

I am being treated to lunch in a very old pub I just love tomorrow for an early Mother's Day treat ;) I am baking again today too, as we speak I have some lemon, raspberry and white chocolate muffins in my oven. I am hoping not to set the smoke alarm off this time though!.....baking and writing blog posts at the same time don't go well together I am finding ;)

Anyway come and have a peek at my card and I hope my cute frog jumping for joy makes you smile too.....

The Flower Challenge #30 Reminder

Hi there friends, I am back with another reminder card for 'The Flower Challenge' again. It's an easy one and 'Anything Goes', so no excuse for not taking part ;)

This time I decided to do a spot of hand drawing and water colouring. I went for a loose sweet pea flowers look. I quite enjoyed it really, but you have to be in the right mood to draw I find lol.

Anyway come and have a peek at my card and also see more fabulous cards in our gallery and ones by my talented teamies too ;)

Libra card and a digital painting.

Hi there, I am back with another quick card for the 'Less is More' challenge again. It's 'Horoscopes' as a theme this time. I made two digital cards already but wanted to try another one using watercolour this time. Also I have a little story to share...(sorry for the long post) but just skip that bit and see my card if you like ;)

I don't have any horoscope stamps so I decided to do a bit of hand drawing. I used my quickie glue pen to draw a Libra star sign then I quickly embossed it in white. I did the sentiment the same way and added matching ink around it. A bit of water colouring, flicking of paint and a few added stars and my card was complete ;) 

Wow it's Thursday already, the week is going so quickly!
(Skip this bit if you just want to see my card)
ps. I just wanted to share something I bought  and something I designed  to go with it recently. I have been in love with this Bluebellgray bedding for over a year now! I often just gaze at it...well it does have flowers...and you know me!
Anyway to cut a long story short I noticed it was in a sale...I never see it in a sale!! (not much off but it helped).
I bought the duvet cover and three pillowslips...gulps at price! (we have a superking size bed too so that didn't help with the cost lol). I really wanted a large matching picture for our room but couldn't find any (it would be far too expensive even if I did to be honest! ). So I devised a cunning plan ;)

I got an artist to paint me some similar matching watercolour flowers then digitize them. I then designed myself a picture using the digital flowers and had it printed onto a large canvas. I designed several and showed them all to my OH for his approval first. I even added a little bird with a small bud in it's mouth and another one trying to not look impressed lol.

I also had two matching silky cushions printed with the same design. I was so happy when they all arrived and I added them to our bedroom. It's like lying in a flower garden now he he!...hmm now if only I could have curtains printed to match too. Pic below my card if you are nosey!
