Good evening , well I am enjoying my days off and have re-organised my craft area . So it feels a bit more spacious now. I have tried to start practising with my distress markers and used them on this saturated canary stamp. Teamed with my minds eye papers.

Need a bit more practise but I'm getting there. The papers are fantastic, had them ages but hadn't used them. I have recently purchased quite a few things.
Graphic 45 Twas the night before Christmas.

Doodlebug & MME pads

Not to mention some dies oops. Think I had better start making a few more things lol. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. 
Thanks for dropping by xxx


  1. very nice card
    wonderful papers you have

  2. Gorgeous card Elaine - your colouring on the image is really lovely and the papers match perfectly. I just bought this Graphic 45 Christmas range too - I LOVE them! And I have my eye on the Doodlebug Halloween papers too although Doodlebug papers are really hard to get here where I live - not sure why because I love all their papers so surely I can't be the only one (?).
