I've been a bad blogger!

Sorry I've not been about for the past few days and I've missed a weekly challenge or two, but I've been in a depression of sorts. Just couldn't be bothered, again!! But here are a few cards that I've made since Friday...This is the first of many Father's Day cards I've got to make. I haven't decided whose Dad its for yet, it'll depend on what the next one looks like lol as to whether I send this to my Dad or Andy's! I used Golden Oldies stamp ~ Harv, coloured with H2O's and watercolour pencils, CS from The Papermill Shop, pp from Tabrizia ~ Beach House Impressions, brads from a PIF and sentiment done on PC.

I made this for my good friend Paula who has been feeling really unwell and had a short stay in hospital. I used CS from stash, pp from a PIF along with the image which is also part of a PIF. I coloured it in with my faithful H2O's and used my clear Sakura pen on her shoes to make them look patent, eyelets from stash and sentiment done on PC.
This has to one of my favourites, I just love these Magnolia images and I've even managed to persuade Andy to let me place my first order!!! Anyway, CS from stash, pp from Raspberry Road Design (link on right) ~ My Baby Love Girl, frame cut with Nesties, blooms from stash, No.1 cut with Hippy Chic Alphas on the cuttlebug, image from Jo's RAK and coloured with, yeah you guessed it H2O's and Sakura pens with a touch of angel dust on her wings. Peel offs also from stash and a Crystal Stickers pearl gem. And lastly ......
Rylee asked me to make his Daddy a Father's Day card. I've recently recieved an order from Alota stamps and this is one of them. I wanted stamps that I could use for males as most of my stamps are more for the girlies. I coloured him with my watercolour pencils and tried to use the colouring technique that Ila has on her blog. CS from The Papermill Shop and pp is off the internet somewhere just googled "Jungle paper" and this is what it bought up. I drew the leaves on to a scrap of the same green CS, added a red line with a Sakura Stardust pen and curved them with my bone tool and stuck a foam pad top and bottom of each one to make them a little 3d. Sentiment is done on the PC.
