Cards, Challenges and Photographs


 Hi Blogging Beauties,

It is raining here today...has been for the last few days.  My poor little puppies are saturated and smelly!!  But the gardens and plants are loving it!!
I have a few cards to share with you today.

These first two cards are with the stamp Syren Creeper Mermaid from The Greeting Farm.  Sammi has her in stock at Mad for Markers click here.  I was experimenting with her hair...it is quite tricky to colour.  I still feel like I need some more practice with this stamp...so hopefully you will be seeing more of her.


For this first card I coloured with:

Hair: E35, E31, Y02
Blues: BG05, BG01, BG006
Skin: E11, E00

I followed the Friday Spy Day Sketch over at the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog.
I actually loved using this sketch.


The second card I coloured with all the same colours except I did the hair slightly differently.  I blended it more and YR20 instead of Y02.

3 Papers
2 Embellishments
1 Image


Lastly, I have a male card I made for the challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies which is to make a masculine card.  I used the same sketch again as in the first card.

Now for a few quick pics taken by Ben on his brand new camera, when we had a little bit of sunshine the other afternoon.  As soon as the rain eases I bet there will be more to share!



Don't be fooled by that innocent face of Tommy (top).  He can be quite a naughty little thing! He has destroyed two of his beds and continues to dig up my gardens.
He needs constant entertainment!!  But he is very lovable.  Ellie (bottom) sleeps most of the day, but comes alive when Ben throws her the frisbee or the football in the afternoon.

Well, I am lucky to have a day designated to the craft room today so I am off to work on my to-do list.  Wish me luck : )
I hope you have a lovely day too.  Thanks for stopping by : )
