Bad, bad blogger - again!

Hello there,


I have been a bad blogger again and didn't post for over a month! I won't bore you with too much reasoning why, my life just has been (and still is) pretty busy. My workshops at home are going well and need prep work done and same with workshops for the Glitterpot. Just been there today for the first day of the Spring Spectacular demoing and it was fun. I am really enjoying working there but it means something had to give and rather than my family life I decided the blog could wait. I hope my readers understand.


I have been making cards all the time though and today I quickly want to share three of them. The first one was made for the Less is more challenge about 4 weeks ago ( I know....!) where the challenge was "Thank you". Never made it in time to take a picture and post it but like it anyway. It's one of Ruth's digis again, her flowers are just lovely!


I coloured the Rhododendron with Copics and stamped the sentiment, then drew the frame with a black pen.


Because I liked this layout I made two more cards with it for my mother and mother in law for mothers day (second Sunday in May):





The text is computer generated, the magnolia and camelia are coloured with Copics again.


Hope to be back with more soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Alex, Gorgeous cards, love each of them, they are beautiful and you made a brilliant job of colouring them:0) I'm not going to get to the Glitterpot, I've just run out of time, we're off out tomorrow in the other direction, a bit disappointed if I'm honest, maybe next time. Have fun:0) xxx

Well I don't normally approve of you being a bad blogger but actually your lack of exhibits is helpful to me on this occasion as I am trying to catch up on a million posts and you only have one and not ten like some of my other blog buddies. For you, in any even, Alex, less is more. These three cards are soooooooo pretty. Perfect colouring. Perfect styling. Perfect! Hugs,Lesley

i was looking at the PTI stamps the other day with the words in the frame and someone suggested just drawing the line and computer generating the text - i think it was Janet! she's much smarter than me!!!

I must get myself a superfine pen!

Love all the cards!
