Spring colours!

I hope you've been enjoying some of the lovely spring sunshine we've been having. We've been lucky here, and everything in the garden is growing like mad - especially the weeds! And it's a joy trying to garden with Rubydoo trying to help and standing on everything....

I thought I'd share a recent card, made with some bright spring colours!

The digi stamp is from LOTV, coloured with copics, graphits and pencils.  

The papers are from LOTV and flowers from WOC . 
The sentiment stamp and die are from Whimsy.

The other thing we've been busy with in the garden are our regular visitors (& at least one or two residents) - our hedgehogs! We started feeding them regularly last year, and husband built a hedgie house. Since then we've 'rehomed' one from the local rescue who needed some support feeding, a couple who come regularly for supper and I think another one is due to arrive from the rescue in another week or so! I think we're very lucky to have these cute, prickly visitors - and they need all the support they can get! This is a pic of our resident girly "Cheeky Chops" having a drink at the pond a few nights ago! 

Back soon!

Back from a Very Long Absence!

I can't quite believe that it's been 7 months of absence from the Wonderful World of Blogging. And I'm not sure if there's still anyone out there after all this time!

But although my little corner of Blogland may have been quiet, I can assure you that the crafting has still been going on. Quite a few Christmas were made, new hobbies discovered (I loved making scented candles!), and lots and lots of crocheting! But I confess that I haven't done much card-making over the last few months. So in an effort to relax and find a bit of stress relief from work, etc., I dusted off the alcohol inks, pencils and papers and started making some cards. This is one from this week

I've used one of my favourite images from LOTV but as a digi stamp, coloured with copics and pencils. 

The papers are from LOTV (my ever dwindling precious stash of the paper pads - I'll have to see if I can find some elsewhere). 
Flowers are from wild orchid crafts and the dies are Poppystamps and Sue Wilson.
Hope you like it! 
And as I've got a few more cards to share, I promise to be back again soon!
