It's Vacation Time

Well for one little lady its vacation time
Unfortunatly it's not me... Sobs loudly...

The other morning I was sitting having a cuppa and deciding on my next Vera lane image that I was going to colour up ,when this little lady hopped straight into my basket begging me to take her home would of been rude of me not too

Sooooo I made her her own little suitcase and guess what she has gone to live with my Granddaughter who fell in love with her.

I loved making this up when I could eventually get the suitcase straps to fit right - I had cut them in completly reverse colours but it took me a while to figure out
You can find little Miss Traveler in the Etsy Store right here

She comes complete with a camera, postcard, map and three different sentiments.
I added in the film roll where I shrunk her right down to fit
I also added a postage stamp which I used one of the Dilly's Girls.

I coloured up using Distress Inks and used some Distress Oxides on the postcard and sentiment
I had endess fun with this

Without rain there'd be no rainbows

What a fabulous sentiment stamp , it was a freebie with
Simply Cards & Papercraft issue 189
Not sure it is in the shops yet as I get mine on subscription which is normally a few days ahead of the shops ~ mine arrived this morning full of stunning stamps and a couple of dies

Deciding on a circle easel which is probably my favourite card shape
I cut out using lilac card stock
I then used Roaring Twenties double sided 12x12 card pack ~ I have had this quite a while but first time it has been used I love it so much.

Magnolia Tilda was coloured using distress inks
I then added extra raindrops and grass (two of the other freebie stamps from magazine)
I used the die from Polkadoodles Elegant Nest
Die Cut the clouds (freebie) I also die cut lamplight and some random stars
I cut an umbrella on my portrait and shrunk it right down to fit my card

The sentiment was finished using rainbow Distress Oxides.

Smiley Sunday

I have called my post Smiley Sunday each time I see these characters I smile
They are so nice to just sit and chill and colour up
and that is just how I spent my Sunday morning
I was up early and got all Granddaughters uniform ironed for school next week and then I gave myself the rest of the morning off to create in my happy place
And this is what I created (there are lots more photos in my little slideshow below)

I have used Distress Oxides on the background along with a brick mask.
I used random stamps for the stars, circles, brave and worthy
I did a few doodles around the edge
and then it was time .....
To colour up my Vera Lane Studio images
The Blue Flower, Fairy , House and sentiment are from The Fairy House Collection
The Bee is from Sprinkle and Sparkle
The other 2 flowers are from the Bloom collection
And the little Bird has flown over from Small things matter
All were coloured with Distress Inks
A splash of glitter was used on her wings and wand and on the little Bee

Bloom where you are Planted ~ part 2

Happy Wet Friday
Ohhh so much rain but I don't care, I really am in my happy place right now with crafting
A few days ago I discovered Vera Lane images, 
I totally am having a blast!!

Here is a link to the store
But be warned addiction may occur!!
I decided I wanted to make myself a canvas
This one is 8x8

I started off doing the boring Gesso and once dried I used a Tim Holtz stencil for the brick work along with some modelling paste ~ Luckily at this point I went shopping so it could dry naturally without me sticking me fingers in to see if its dry even though I knew it wasn't.

So once home I painted a random background using Ecolines.
I used a inkwell stamp Meadow Row for the black stamping at the bottom.
And added a few various stencils and stamps

Now from Vera Lane Studio I used
I also used the amazing collage sheets

I have used Distress inks to colour and some oxides on the background
I finished off by giving the bee's a sprinkle of glitter and then added some fun sequin mix oh a a few splodges of Nuvo drops Gloss ~ Carnation Pink
