Oooooh Copics are FUN!

So I played with my new Copics yesterday and had a LOT of fun! This is Lizzie Anne Designs Fun to be Floral set and I coloured in part of the flower and then glitzed it with the Copic Clear sparkle pen! It looks gorgeous! This is my sister Paula on her wedding day - my sister Lynn took this photo, she definitely captured a moment :) Paula has been on my mind a lot lately, she's not well and has just had a major operation which was very successful thankfully! Paula I love you squillions! Get well soon!

I have been waiting FOREVER for these to arrive! I have a few sets in my store :) I'm going to have SO much fun with these, maybe it will give me my card making mojo back! I remember playing with these at CHA and oh boy they are good. Especially the Sparkle Pens, made with tiny particles of glass no less! The clear Sparkle pen is the best! It's really clear - not silvery like most and you won't believe how sparkly! Right, off to make a card, see you later :D

It's all about the bling!

It's baa-aack! Yes because I have tried a few cards with no bling and no girlyness I went a little bit mad with this one!!! Hahaha! This is Lizzie Anne's Fun to be floral set and I also used Cosmo Cricket paper and Adornit Ribbon and of course I used a punch! The giga circle. All of these items can be found in my store :) Oh the tag was made with a Spellbinders die. I used it on my Cuttlebug and it worked great! It's feels so good to get back to using the sparklies again, I'm just not cut out for 'simple'.

Maggie & Evie

I just have to post a little something more about these 2 little girls. I promise I will post another card soon :) I had such a lovely time in Montana visiting Carrie & Joe and their 2 beautiful little baby girls. It's amazing to see such little babies and knowing all that is being done to help them grow...just amazing. I can't wrap my mind around it! This is Carrie with Maggie 13 days old. Please feel free to visit their website MayDayGirls I wish we lived closer :(

More trees :)

So I have a confession, as you may have noticed my blogs are few and far between - I'm finding it hard to get back into routine since my Mum left. This weekend we are going to Montana to see friends of ours that had Twin baby girls 15 weeks early! They are both under 2lbs but are little fighters. Please have them in your prayers. Their names are Evelyn Mae and Margaret Ann.
This card was hard for you notice anything missing...yep, bling! Oh my that was so difficult to stop without putting on my sparkles. I don't think I will be able to do that again! Well I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, we are supposed to get a heatwave YAY! Unfortunately we will be in a car for 8 hours tomorrow though! Should be a pretty drive through the mountains though.

Back to normality

Well my Mum went home and all the Shopping Malls within a 30 mile radius are weeping ;) We are very sad that she had to go home. It felt very quiet and lonely this morning without her once the girls had gone to school. My car is in the garage not knowing why it isn't driving to a Mall today!!! Hahahaha! it's back to normality now.

In the Treetops

I made this card at my Girly Scrapbook Retreat last weekend! We had a LOT of fun. I got 36 pages and 3 cards made!!! AND I used all of my old stuff - nothing new! I'm such a good girl. My Mum is still here, we have been to see the tulips and that was beautiful. She leaves on Wednesday evening - it will be said to see her go. I have really enjoyed shopping with her, honestly we have been shopping almost EVERY day! My feet have not had time to touch the floor! Anyway, hope you are having a nice weekend. We have rain :(
