Pretty Flamingo

Thanks to my friend Ann I've found a new to me challenge blog called Stuck on Sketches and there is a great sketch there to play with this week.

We went last year to Martin Mere which is a wildfowl area run by the RSPB, I was quite amazed by the flamingos who gathered around near the visitors entrance and there was much head bobbing and showing off. I managed to get this picture which is fairly decent and thought it would be a good idea to make use of it on a scrapbook page.  We have lots of animal pictures which just sit on the pc, so I think I'll be making more pages soon.  I have recently bought Craft Artist and although I love paper am really enjoying using the digital side too. The programme has so much to play with you can spend hours just putting bits here and there and then removing them again until I get the look I want, what a pleasant way to while away a few hours while OH watches the rugby on tv.

Rainbow Lady's challenge- Hand Made Flowers

Sorry folks I'm a bit late posting this, had a bit of a moment this morning and ran out of time.  Over on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog this week we want you to use hand made flowers and to add a bit of interest Caroline has even added a flower template for you to use. Caroline also gave us some images to work with and mine was the orange one, I printed off several sheets and made up a couple of flowers, sprayed with the spray and sparkle and added a gem in the middle.  I cut the outer wrap on the Cricut and then used the same card to stamp the butterfly onto. I mounted this onto a creamy card which has been coloured with Distress Inks, I bought the corner punches at the QVC outlet shop and they came in a set  of four.

Do come on over and join us we love to have you play. xx

CD Sunday - Dream

Over on CD Sunday this week we want you to dream along with us, I have made an easel card with an image from the Enchanted Dreams Cd from Joanna Sheen. I am not sure if the colour is right because my printer was playing up and I think the background should be blue but I quite liked the purple tones so used it. I sprayed it with Spray and Sparkle, iridescent just to brighten the colours up and add a bit of something extra.

I hop you can come over and join us this week as we love to visit you and see you wonderful creations.
