Ooops a bit behind with showing you these!  These are the gorgeous swaps received from my playmates recently.

Loving this card from Liz, not just because the flowers are blue either!   The brickwork background looks great and was all hand done by Liz too.  Great card xx
This next card is from the talented Sarn who always manages to bring us a dimensional card.  Fabulous x

The next two items were from Lesley G.  How lucky were we to get a gift too.  Forgot to photograph the little bottle of shower cream that was in the gift above.  Am absolutely loving the Tip Top Taupe coloured ribbon and paper Lesley has used
As well as the pressie, Lesley gave us this really cute little card too.
Thank you for stopping by today, I really appreciate it.

Awsomely Artistic - Friend

Good morning, hope you have been enjoying this gorgeous weather we been having. It almost doesn't feel right being in the craft room when the sun is blazing away outside.
Today I am sharing a card I made using the lovely Awsomely Artistic stamp set.  I loved this set as soon as I saw it.  The coloured card is Watermelon Wonder, love it.
Thank you for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it.

M & T's

Good morning, here we are another lovely sunny day.
Wanted to share with you today the M&T's my playmates had designed for us.   We got very inky this time with both Sarn's and Lesley's makes and also the designs called for "random" !  Those that know me know that I find it quite difficult to do random! Not only that but Liz had us tearing our card too... noooooo!!!     Having said all of that, I thoroughly enjoyed myself making them.  So here goes.......

M&T designed by Sarn.  Sarn kindly put a couple of layers of gesso and the flower die on the card prior to our playday. We then set about inking.  Obviously I chose blue and yellow on my card. !  The little blobs in the right hand corner started out as lovely bubbles of gesso (after having been heated) but unfortunately they have all burst, but hey loving the look anyway.  You will also notice that the customary glitter is there too on the flower!

The next card was designed by Liz.  She is so creative isn't she?  It took some courage to tear the paper but we just went for it!  Love this card
The last M&T was learning the Bokeh technique.  LOVE IT!!!! Here a couple of samples of my efforts.  Love all of them so much I am not sure I am going to be able to stamp over them to turn them into cards to send!
These two nearly didn't happen because Lesley hid the blue because she just knew I would want the blue's! Think she was wanting me to broaden my horizons!
Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day

Playday swap June 15

Yay, it's Saturday.  I have to work this morning but as soon as I get in I will be heading straight for the craft room!   
Today I wanted to share a tag that I made for my playmates.
I inked the background with a sponge using Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Djion, Mint Macaron, & Tip Top Taupe.  I stenciled some butterflies in the background and then die cut a butterfly using one the SU Butterflies thinlets.

Thank you for stopping by today

Playday M&T's June 15

Good morning, so glad that it is Friday.  I don't mean to wish my life away but I soooo look forward to the weekend and being able to go into my craft room and craft.
Today I thought I would share with you my M&T's for my playday friends.   Yet again I have used the gorgeous Delightful Djion ink to colour my flowers which have been stamped & embossed with clear embossing powder then painted on the reverse side using the ink.  I love to do 4 x 4 cards as I think they are a great size to use as "Thank You" cards.
Thank you for stopping by today
