My one and only beautiful Grand daughter has just
had her 40th birthday.
Where oh where have those years gone.
So now I can show you her birthday card made with another
new PB stamp called Scented

The photo really doesn't do it justice.
I embossed the stamp with a fine gold glitter powder and 
coloured with Copics and it is really very elegant.
I mounted this onto gold shimmer paper. 
The die is a Sue Wilson freebe from Die Cut Essentials magazine
that has just arrived here in Australia,  Think it is the July edition. 

Here is another card I made with the same stamp but this time embossed with black,
fussy cut and mounted with 3D foam. So very different.
Have written myself a memo to get some new embossing powders 
as mine are all so old and getting yucky.
This is such an easy rose to colour in

Well this is what I have been up to the last week or so to keep my mind off things. 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.

More florals

A big welcome to Marijke who has joined my followers.

Here are 2 more cards made with the PB Botanic Garden stamps.
Love this little flower.
In the first card I used a new embossing folder from WeR 
called Quilted.
Also used up a small snippet of lace and the last piece of ribbon so
I am sharing it with the Pixie Snippets Playground.

In this one I used some new background paper with a 
completely different look.
I am sharing this with A bit more time to craft

Have a great day and thanks for dropping in.

Playing with Penny Black

I have needed some distraction recently so I brought out my
very latest Penny Black stamps.
I am not going to tell you that I have more on order.
This CAS card shows off PB Botanical Gardens

It has been coloured with Copics and the butterfly was 
painted with smooch.
The sentiment is a PB 1998 stamp.
I am sharing this with.

Still going round in circles

Yes I have been playing with circles again.
Not that I have had much time to do anything with 
DH being in Hospital this week.
There is nothing worse than sitting around in hospital
waiting for Dr's etc. All so tiring.
DH is back in the nursing home now and glad to be back
with the routine and people he knows.

Really useful for using up all those pieces of  left over DP.
I have found a whole stack of odd pieces while having a clean up.
Perhaps some one can explain why every time I use up some scraps
at least 3 more pieces take their place.
Am popping over to Pixies Snippets with this.

Many thanks for popping in
