Woodland Friends...finished card

The last card of today is the card I started yesterday with the Woodland Friends clear stamps. I posted a draft coloured in version of something I made up using these stamps and, as promised, here is the finished version. I decoupaged the owl and stuck him in front of the tree. The shadow beneath him is actually from the flash, not something I have coloured.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by and visiting me today.

Fergus in Lilac

Here's another card made with Fergus with Tulips, this time in lilac and a slightly, simpler layout.

I stamped Fergus up and coloured him in. Then I cut around him leaving a white border and then mounted him onto black mirri card and cut around him again.

I then drew the 'H' and the 'I' freehand and coloured them in the same colour as the dragon and mounted those onto black mirri card too. Used some DP from My Minds Eye and that's it!

Thanks for stopping by

Fergus with Tulips

One of the stamps I purchased from the Glitter Pot when I met up with Sarn at the end of November was 'Fergus with Tulips', a clear stamp from Wild Rose Studio. Here's what I have made with him this morning, using my fab new Copic pens. The greeting is from my 'Friends' Woodland Folk stamp collection.

BTW: I still love my ProMarkers and will still be using them. Haven't decided yet which ones I like using better, although I have to say that I do really like the brush tip on the Copics, you get much more flexibility with it and you don't have to put hardly any pressure on to leave ink on the paper. Just a little bit of information for those of you who haven't yet tried them.

Hope you like the card and thanks for stopping by.

Animals at Christmas

These are photographs of the 'other' family members at Christmas time, that I thought I would share with you.

The lovely Harley posed beautifully for my swanky new camera and Kimmie enjoyed having her picture taken too, even Soxy the Rat enjoyed opening her Christmas presents.

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Late Posting

Well, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are going to have a very happy new year to come. Today is the first day in a long time that I have felt even remotely 'normal' whatever that may be for me. But yes, today I am 'okay', not 100% by a long shot, but... I'm getting there. The scars on my back are healing nicely too, for those of you who also know that I managed to slip down my steps, in the back garden, in the snow, and do my back in aswell!!!

Anyway, just before Christmas, at the end of November, I went to the Glitter Pot with my good friend Sandra for a crafting class and it was a lovely day when I eventually got there that is. My sat nav managed to take me to READING!!! WTH!!! Anyway, after an additional HOURS drive, I managed to get there with just a few minutes left before the class was due to begin. After Sandra stopped laughing, we got down to business and made these two fabulous Christmas cards.

I haven't given them to anyone yet, in fact none of my Christmas cards were posted this year as Steve has been ill himself and despite being at work (on the ambulances... very busy time for him) he FORGOT to post them all! Doh! So everyone... I apologise for lack of Christmas post from the Campbells this year and I'll make it up to everyone next year! Promise x

I got some cool new Copics for Christmas this year from my lovely mummy. Copic set D from The Glitter Pot and so I have been colouring in something I created last night with another Christmas present called Home Sweet Home clear stamps from Woodland Folk. Wanna see? It's not been created into a card yet so is still work in progress, but here's what I have coloured so far.  Hope you like it.

Thanks for being patient with me, and thanks for staying loyal my lovely followers.
I'll be back proper, from now on, I feel the need to craft like I have never crafted before ha ha. So watch out. Lots of new goodies to play with and not enough time to play.

Happy New Year to everyone.
