Gather Love



Morning Peeps, the Prickly Pear piece I am sharing this week uses a number of stamps from the new Spring releases which I stamped onto a Dylusions background, did a bit of bleaching some stenciling with grunge paste to add a bit of added texture and a touch of colour to the flowers.


And my Nicecrane DT shares are also new designs, these are called Children and Dogs which I think are so sweet, you will find them here. They will work perfectly for my AHT charity cards where they sell them as quickly as I make them, but it's such a great cause.


Blue is not a colour I use very often but there are shades of blue in most of the five images in this set so I teamed them up with Graphic 45 DP..........just for a change I hear you say.


And just the one more using the new Nicecrane At the Sea designs here, such pretty Vintage images.

Have a good Monday.

Excellent cards Brenda, however I do love the sentiment "No-there's no cat here" !! I lost Mo the yard cat yesterday until I opened the tack room and discovered her fast asleep on Surprises rug, she must have crept in on Saturday evening while I was riding...ooops!! Lots of cuddles made it better though!! Love all the Nicecrane images you have used. Feel a spend coming on!! xx

Gorgeous cards today Brenda, the children images are simply stunning. Love the PP card too with the zingy citrus colours but not sure l would want a ladybird hitching a ride on one of those snails (far too many of those about at the mo and keep patrolling my veggies & greenhouse lol). Take care x Susan x

I love that little snail working his way amongst the flowers & your grunge paste texture adds such interest as well as the pearls for the flower centres. The little shells in the final one echo the shapes of the die-cut border to your focal image & I particularly like that little know in the corner which adds such a lovely nautical touch, The way your lace edge of the stepper border echoes that on the little girl's dress is another lovely pice of echoing. Your use of blue combines superbly with the neutrals.
