Puppies at last.........

Dainty Lily left, Daisy the hunk right

Happy Thursday all....................just updated to add a couple of pictures I manages to snap of the girls just now...............a rare moment with them both sitting still and together.

Another week seems to be whizzing by, but at least I am all ready for Saturday and have finished my NEC samples and they are safely delivered and off my desk.

Two shares today. The first one using yet another new Molly Harrison fairy stamps from Crafts and Me called Wonderland and a matching envibox which you can but from ??? (link on my sidebar). The My Minds Eye DP is really old but beautifully glittery and I used that as the colour source of my card. I stamped the image with Memento black and masked, then brayered with Big and Juicy spice.....the colours not too good, I think I am due a new one, but not bad going, I must have had it two years and it gets well used. I coloured the image with the same ink pad and Copics, glittered the wings and flowers, a border punched with Martha Stewart cornice edger, flowers and some punched leaves. I stamp the envibox with Inkadinkado 98702 and coloured with the same inks and Copics. This card is for the following challenges:

ABC - G for Glitter
Simon Says - Punch Em
Charizma Cardz - Match Master

My second card uses Magenta 42047M Floral Silhouette as the main images, stamped with versafine imperial purple and embossed with detail clear. I stamped this onto a block created by masking and spritzing with Glimmer Mist fully purple, lilac fields and pearl. The sentiment is a Hero one, but no code I'm afraid. This card is for the following challenges:

Fab and Funky - Clean and Simple
Creative Cottage - Dry or wet Embossing
CRAFT - Monotone

Hi Brenda,
I got an email with 10% off from crafts and me, I just love the Hannah Lynn winter green wish's so it's looking rather like its going to be on my blog
Its scary to see you with the new Molly Harrison images, only because I haven't made anything yet with my last set and have a feeling these new ones will be on my wish list next.
Love the effect on your card, must get some pointers from you next
Today I have just been playing, not done much proper stamping for what seems like ages so got loads of stamps out and just got stuck in, nothing to show yet but great fun.
Love the pic's of Lily and Daisy, they are both gorgeous, melt your heart.....
I returned my Bro's dog this week, my dog's been sulking eversince, bless....

Petes feels better today, might be because he got his new telescope, talk about technology, only thing it doesn't do is make a

Be back soon

lisa said...

Hi Brenda. Wow, the pups are growing so fast and what a handsome pair they make. You must be so delighted with them.
Love both your cards but my fav has to be the flowers, so simple but beautiful.
How's the floor laying going. You'd have a right laugh at ours. We couldn't be bothered to take down the bed so it is being propped up will Hubby crawls underneath with his strips of wood!!!
Hope you see some sunshine in your neck of the woods.
Hugs Lisax
