A canvas using Finnabair Stamps

Good morning Lovelies and a happy Sunday, yeah me again!

Had so much fun using the Finnabair stamps I got from Oyster stamps I made two tags over the last couple of days that I blogged yesterday and I liked them so much I thought I'd have a go at a small canvas 6"x 6" using the Cracked Pistashio and Abandoned Coral spray stains and the gorgeous Color Bloom gold sprays by Prima Marketing all found at Oyster stamps. I also used Ryns Patio Stone Stamp, the foliage is Sizzix.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you like my canvas, have a great weekend xx Zoe xx

Penny Black and some Easter cards

Good morning Lovelies! Looking a tad murky out there today :( getting my hair done today and was hoping it would be nice enough to walk, fingers crossed it brightens up?

Well continuing my obsession with Penny Black lol I hope your not bored yet? I just love PB at the mo, I've also made some Easter cards, I'm not posting them all but I managed to get them all done in one day, phew! That's them out the way, I don't really do Easter, but I have a few older ladies that I still do their hair and I still send Easter cards to my previous foster girls who have all been adopted, I'm not posting their cards in this blog post.

Penny Black

Good afternoon Lovelies, another beautiful day :) it started of damp and cold but the sun has come out now and it's beautiful, anyway I'm having to stay home a fair bit as baby is poorly again bless him, he now has Bronchiolitis, it's one thing after another poor little soul, seems to have a weakness in his chest.

Anyway, as I'm not getting out much I'm managing to get some crafty playtime in and I'm adoring these new Penny Black bits I've got, just so pretty and I can't leave them alone :)


I'm hoping the recipient of this last tag has received it today?

Thank you so much for spending the time to visit today, enjoy the rest of your day xx Zoe xx

Crafty dabbles!

Good evening Lovelies, what gorgeous weather it's been this week, so lovely to see the sun.

Well my poor little foster baby boy has been poorly again, just as it seemed he was fully recovered we was in A&E from 1am until 4.30am on Wednesday with breathing difficulties, bless him, he was still in good spirits and has smiled throughout, he has Broncilitis which can take up to 4 weeks to go, so sadly I had to miss Eileen Godwins wonderful workshop today :( my only day off in a month, but hey ho! Little chap comes first.

So here are a few things I've managed to make whilst little one sleeps.

I made this small canvas for little one to take with him when he gets adopted, I used the wonderful Rocking Horse stencil from Sweet Poppy Stencils - designed by the very talented Emma Cronin, I used blue Sparkle medium.

An ATC for a challenge using Penny Black stamp and Die.

Tim Holtz fabulous new Butterfly stamp with Brusho's sprinkled onto the stamp directly then lightly spritzed with water, I like to add mica powder to the water to get a pretty shimmer.

Kraft card spritzed with Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral spray stains and a gold spray, I embossed the fabulous Sarntangles Click on her name and check out her fabulous stamps, used the gorgeous TH butterfly again and the foliage is Memory Box die.

And here's the card Little One and I made for his birth mum, Aquatints sploshed on, Visible Image tree stamp and Little Ones finger prints in paint to create some interesting looking leaves lol.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you all have something special planned for the day tomorrow if your a mum or for your mum, have a great weekend xx Zoe xx

Good afternoon Lovelies, and what a gorgeous day it is, just doing this blog then we are going to go out for a nice walk with baby for some fresh air.

Today I'm sharing with you some bits I've made today and yesterday.

All the elements of this card are Penny Black, I used Abandoned Coral and Mustard Seed distress stains.

This second card was inspired by a beautiful card I saw on Pinterest, I used Aquatints - Bright and Beautiful set, the gorgeous butterfly is Penny Black Die - Flights of Fancy, the sentiment is Stampendous.

Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral distress spray stains and a light spray of Color Bloom empress gold, I heat embossed a TH flourish with gold EP same with the gorgeous TH butterfly, I coloured him with Distress stains in Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio and Picked Raspberry, foliage is memory box and the "smile" is Penny Black.

My last one is not my usual style, I'm still not sure I really like it, but I made it for a challenge, I used Goosebumps, Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistachio spray stains and then a light spray of some gold metallic - Color Bloom by Prima marketing (love em)


Thank you for spending your time to visit today, I hope your having a great weekend xx Zoe xx
