Messing around..... again!

I have been messing around again with a new creative toy :) Just thought I'd share this image I'd altered in PSP ..... I luuurves this piece of software, I've only just begun exploring it's capabilities and I am very impressed with what it can do so far and no doubt there will be so
much more that can be done.
I took lots of close up shots of wild spring flowers on Mother's day last week, I just had to capture their loveliness, I'm so glad I did, as they will give
me hours of creative fun :)
The shot here is one of a pink tinged daisy, tweaked in just a few clicks.

New additions to the family

Meet 'Daisy' & 'Tiggi' our new adoptees :)

They have been with us for over a week now and they are slowly settling in. This is a rare moment of them both together, relaxing..... it's not always the case, they are both more often than not, either asleep or up to playful mischief!

Singing-Ringing Tree

I made a couple of cards the other day from this stamp that my other half thinks looks like the singing, ringing tree! I do like using this stamp as it's quite versatile. A quick share for these two as I am trying to get my house in order... spring cleaning is a year round thing for me, if you understand?!

Both were made using craftwork card blanks. I used prisma color pencils to colour the stamped images, some old mod rubons were dug out from my crafty stash, punched shapes, ribbons and a small amount of printed paper punched with a (EK)scallop border punch from stampin up. The green card is highlighted with a touch of stickles glitter, it's also inked around the edges of the card, but it's so hard to pick this up on camera. Does anyone have any tips for taking good photies? I am terrible, I never seem to be able to get my colours right these days.

Papertake Weekly - Hot Chocolate

I'm picking myself up off the floor after falling over in amazement...... I've posted twice in one day!
...."Steady".... I've also managed to do a challenge - lol! This one is for the papertake weekly challenge which is to use the colours: chocolate, pink and orange. My inspiration was loosely based on a project that Sam Currie did in this month's Quick & Crafty mag. The papers & elements used are from sweetshoppedesigns, the kit, 'Bloom & Grow' is designed by Zoe Pearn and is available as a digital download.
Hope you like (:
