Hi there everyone

a bright spring card to cheer you up on a chilly day like today


the image is printed from the decoupage section from the new Mulberry wood CD
I love ducks lol ….  these two are so darn cute had to cut then out and make a card
the images on the new mulberry wood CD are scrummy
something for every occasion on there do check it out ….

i have used the New Picket fence die for this card
the decorative strips at the top and bottom are the waste strips from the die cuts
why waste them…. you get some lovely effects  from the left over  when using dies
simply matted and layered onto core-dination card stock on a 8x8centrua pearl card blank
cut from the 16x16 centrua pearl card from Crafters Companion

Just my Imagination

Good morning everyone
my word it’s a cold one this morning the frost is still laying here
it makes the spider webs look lovely though

for my card i have used the Stag stamp   from Jayne Nestorenko
stamped onto Neenah  mirri and centura pearl
some die’s and my embossing folders
i coloured the stamp with Spectrum Noir from Crafters Companion

then with  a tiny bit of twinkles i brushed it over the stag to give him that extra bit of sparkle
must dash  off to prepare dinner get that out of the way then fit in some crafting
thank you for popping by have a great Sunday
