Today belongs to You

Hello my crafty friends, I recently purchased the Crazy Dog  stamps  a couple of weeks ago now, and I have been itching to get them stamped up, so today I thought I would have a play, I stamped a couple of the dogs and thought what do I do now, there's so many amazing cards out there made with the crazy dogs and heaps of inspiration to get you started, so I just went for it and hope I have not duplicated anyone's card. I coloured the dog, parcels, and balloons, with a mixture of promarkers copic's and Spectrum noir. The balloon card is from a pad called Betty's studio and measure's 30 x 15cm,  with glitter and embossed pages, it's lovely I bought it here in Portugal, the sentiment is a rubber stamp it comes with a few more, sorry I have lost the pkt so I can not remember who made them..

So cute

hello, so pleased you have popped in, this is the second of my two new stamps I received last week, it's from wild rose Studio, I stamped them on to a oval shape cut from tonic oval die, then onto another oval shape this time it's the scallop edge from tonic, I coloured them with pro-markers, and added some lose glitter, I did not have a Christmas word so I just stamped Christmas and add the cut out wishes, I am not sure on the die behind my stamped image as it was cut out a while ago , buttons and papers are from my craft box and scrap box, I was rushing to finish my card last night before the day light went, I had my card with the opening at the top but I stuck my image on with out realising serves me right for rushing haha..

Well that's the summer holidays over,the last of my family headed off home to England first thing this morning! When my niece arrived last Saturday she brought me two gorgeously cute stamps from Wildrose studio, which I love , i have been waiting all week to stamp them up, so now the washing and cleaning done I sat down and made this card with one of my new stamps called Robins on Branch. I coloured them with my water colour pencils, I don't use them often and I feel out of my comfort zone when I do, but anyway that's what i used and I enjoyed using them, just need more practice lol..I added glitter to there cute little hats and some glitter on the berries too, the Merry Christmas sentiment is a old stamp from Woodward, the Star Die is from Memory Box, papers, buttons, and confetti are all from my craft box..
