I've fallen in love with...

my new stamps! Yep, I'm hooked on the super cute Sugar Nellie stamps!!

Mel challenged me to make a card using one of the stamped images before the end of the weekend. So here it is...

although I have a feeling you will be seeing a few more of these in the upcoming weeks ;)

Thanks sweetie, and your little Tilda card is just gorgeous!

I'm just waiting for my order of COPIC markers to arrive now, and then I'll really be crusing!! I just used some old ZIG photo markers I had lying around to colour little Daisy, but they started pilling the paper. I also tried using watercolour pencils, but it just took too way long for me - for those of you who don't know me well, I'm not exactly patient!

I also got to play with these gorgeous 7gypsies papers that I've been ogling for a LONG time, and finished Karen's challenge over at Scrap Pile. A little late, but glad I got it finished, as I really adore Karen's work, and didn't want to miss this opportunity to tap into her style!

The photo is Mum and I on Mother's Day at the Bell Tower Restaurant in Booie. It's gorgeous up there, and we had such a fantastic day! So glad we made the effort to travel home to see her, even if it was only for the day :) I think Mum really enjoyed herself too :)

and here's a close up of the cute little homemade transparency retro flower that Mel made for me while she was here in April. She stamped an autumn leaves stamp onto some scrap transparency and punched little retro flowers. Nice and easy and a really cheap embellie :)
