Cuddle Up

Thanks so much for all the lovely messages I received yesterday, it was really appreciated, when I was feeling at my lowest and was ready to delete my blog and never craft again, it was the thought of all the fabulous friends and their kindness that kept me going.

I am off to London to stay with my son Matthew today, we are going to the Olympic Stadium tomorrow evening to see the athletics, I think we are going to get there early and take a tour of the whole Olympic site plus hopefully take the Gondola over to the Excel centre, cannot wait.


After my break I am really behind with my Christmas Cards so thought I had better make a start now, this image is by Fizzy Moon and although I have had it since last year it has never seen ink, like many of my stamps Smile.

It was stamped onto to Neenah Classic card and coloured with Copics (numbers below), the papers are last years Magnolia Xmas collection, I am pleased with the classic Christmas Greens and Reds I have used, last year I was into more contemporary colours.  A little square of lint has been popped behind the image, and 3 Marianne Design Snowflakes have been cut and glittered from White Card.  The Roses are made with another Marianne designs die – Flowers & Leaves both dies are in stock at J & C Creations.    The little Tag is from the Lili of the Valley Sentiment Tags .


Copics used:

Greens: G99, YG67, YG63

Reds R46, R27, R24

Bears Muzzles: E51, E53

Body: E35, E33, E30, E50

Nose: E79, E74, E71

Fence: E71, E70

Have a good day
