Making wishes

Hello all, and a warm welcome to new followers - thanks for taking the time to follow, and I hope you'll enjoy the sharing of crafty makes (& tolerate the waffle!).

We've been experiencing the usual British summer mix of sunshine and showers, but we've managed a few nice days out, as there is a little four-legged beast in the house that needs walkies every day (sunshine or rain!). It's also meant that when the rain has arrived, it's been a good opportunity to get the inks and pencils out and do some colouring - and then spend some time putting cards together! It's nice to have 'rediscovered' the enjoyment in crafting cards again, after a bit of a break for a few months.  But I'm also now lusting after a new set of pencils and have got my beady eye on a fab set of Faber Castell polychromos (when it comes to crafting, I'm not a cheap date lol!). If you use these, I'd love to know how you find them to use (while I'm in the process of saving up for a set!).

Anyway, I've enjoyed playing with a few of the new digi stamps from LOTV that I somehow accidentally bought when I was browsing..... I don't know how that happens!  This little cutie is 'Make a wish' and I think she is just adorable!

I really enjoyed colouring up this sweet image, using my usual mix of copics and pencils (with a little bit of added sparkle)

The sentiment stamps and papers are from LOTV, with a mix of die cut flowers

Hope you like it!
