Just the usual inkiness


Using Dylusions Bubblegum pink, cut grass and fresh lime, Stamp Addicts Waiting for the Storm stamp, Memory Box corner flourish and Tonic Peruvian Lily punch and stamp set

Morning Peeps, a rather quick post before I get stuck into 'proper' work, I thought I would share a few more of the DT pieces I have been making with Stamp Addicts latest stamp releases and also Jo Channon's  new Lets Create range of Victorian stamps.............most of you will know both Sarah and Jo from C&C.

Using Dylusions turquoise, fresh lime and London blue, Lets Create Wildflower, Labelled with Love and Rosetta stamp sets, TH caged bird die and Twinking H2o's

Sorry it's short and sweet, time sort of runs away with me and then the phone suddenly reminds me it's time for work.

Have a good Tuesday everyone and as always my grateful thanks for all your visits and kind words.

Bridie Payne said...

Great cards, I really like that first sentiment I needed reminding of that today - builders are smashing my house to bits and the mess is really starting to get to me! I'll not be dancing in the plaster dust but thanks for reminding me that I should be enjoying watching the project come together not wishing it was over already.

Thank you for leaving a lovely comment on my blog



Hugs

The colours of your cards are gorgeous! And so is the design. I've never heard the sentiment you used on the first card (at least not that I would remember), but I love it - definitely worth remembering. I also likethe idea with adding beads to the bird cage. I think I should bring out my bead boxes too.
Hugs! xx

Absolutely stunning Brenda.
Adore that sentiment and of course the caged bird.

Hanneke said...

Paula (PEP) said...

I don't tire of your variations on 'usual' inkiness..... anyhow it's your second one with the button & the gorgeous little dandy bits hanging from the cage that catch my eye plus the bird's little eye (too many eyes in my sentence......). Then it's the sentiment in the first & my thoughts have gone off on another tangent. Thanks for delightful things to ponder over......

Annmaree (Emu) said...

I keep saying it, but I'll say it again... I am just LOVING Dylusions and especially how you are using them, Brenda!

The quote on the first is so true, and loving the colour combo and flowers and the subtle prints/stamp throughout the background!

The bird and cage and flowers coloured on the second are amazing as well!

Chantal said...

Edyta z Kubkiem Kawy said...

:-) Lovely cards, especially with a bird and a cage.
The sentence, text from the first one is very wonderful. To learn dance in the rain is the important thing... I think. The waiting for the rainbow is too long... sometimes...
Sorry for my English, like always...
