Best Wishes ...

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather we are having in Perth today, just gorgeous.

It has been a crazy busy week for us this week, our son and partner are moving back in today  until their new place becomes available.  So we have been moving furniture out to make room,  cleaning and scrubbing and clearing shed space to store furniture...amazing how you spread out when they move out.  But it is all done now so can now relax.

I managed to sneak a bit of time to make a card,  so today I would like to share it with you.

I have used the following:

Stamp set:  Full Bloom Vol 1 - Darkroom Door
Distress Ink Pads: Fired Brick, Barn Door, Shabby Shutters & Forest Moss
Memory Box Stencil: Mesh
Gesso - Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gesso

These are all available as a preorder via Bizzy Becs Online Store Here:

The ribbon, flower, cardstock and bling are from my own stash.

Until next time, Happy crafting.

Thankyou for popping by.

Hi everyone, today I would like to share with you my card for this months  'Anything Goes' challenge over at Bizzy Becs.

For my card I chose a new stamp that I recently purchased from Bizzy Becs and have been waiting to colour it up.  

It is my mums 80th birthday next week and as blue is her favourite colour this was a perfect image to colour for her card.  I am also fairly certain that she won't see this post so it will still be a surprise when she gets its.

I have used copic markers to colour the stamp staying with the BG tones for the flowers with a touch of  greys and YG's for the stems and centres and E08 for highlights on the stems and buds.

Stamp:  C.C. Designs - Himalayan Poppy
Memory Box Die - Shaker Rectangle Frames
(these are available as a pre-order from Bizzy Becs here)  

Tim Holtz Alteration Thinlits - Celebration Words
Ribbon, Copic Markers
(from my own stash)

Thanks for popping in, have a wonderful day.

Happy Crafting
