My other passion

Hi everyone !!

I just wanted to quickly share with you all, my other crafting passion, which is cross-stitching.

I've just completed these beautiful butterflies, and thought I'd show you a couple of pics. I started this one back in September 2010 (approx), and have just managed to finish it this weekend !!

The last few ones I've done have been for gifts for friends, so it was nice to choose something for ME !!

I've already made a start on the next one, which is going to be a gift for a girlfriend who is having a baby and due in August. I've chosen a fairly simple design for the next project, so hopefully it won't take me long.
Thanks again for stopping by.

Roses Roses

Welcome to Day 3 preview of Once Upon A Time. Today's beautiful image is "Roses Roses". Isn't she just gorgeous.

Again, I've coloured her with Copics -
Hair - E33, E35, E37
Skin - E000, E00
Dress - BV00, BV02
Roses - R81, R83, R85

The papers I've used are Kaisercraft's "Magic Happens" collection. I'm loving their 6" x 6" paper pads, they are so handy for card making !!

I hope you've all been enjoying the gorgeous work of the other DT members, and hope to see you here again tomorrow for another exciting release.

Harry Potter

This is my second post for the day, so scroll down to see the Once Upon A Time collection.

I wanted to show you all this card I made for a close friend for his 30th birthday. He has recently started reading the Harry Potter books, and when I found these digi stamps over at Pixie Dust Studios, I knew they would make a perfect birthday card.

Ron & Hermione

Dumbledore and Hedwig
The spells I found on the net, printed them out and inked with Tim Holtz distress ink.

I coloured all the images with Copics (of course .. lol), and the paper is from Kaisercraft's Timeless collection.
The castle card template was from A Path of Paper blog, which is an awesome blog for lots of templates and to get the creative juices flowing. Thanks Deneen for sharing your amazing talents .... your blog is incredible.

I've decided to enter this in the following challenges;
Totally Paper Crafts - "Do It With Digi"
Pixie Dust Studios - "Don't be square"

Hope you enjoyed this card, and fingers crossed the birthday boy will love it too .... lol

Anyway, don't forget to stop by Bizzy Bec's blog for your chance to win some candy, and as I mentioned yesterday, I'm offering one of these beautiful images in the form of a rubber stamp as candy, so leave me a message for your chance to win.

New cards

Hello !!

I've had a very productive day, with lots of time to create, which has been lovely. Below are pics of today's cards.

The images on the first card are ones that I've had coloured for quite some time, but have only just got around to using them.

The second card is the birthday card I've made for my closest friend. It's her birthday tomorrow, and we've been friends for over 20 years. I thought the Magnolia image represented us perfectly .... we're so similar in so many ways. Even our second children were born only 3 weeks apart !!!

I hope you've enjoyed these cards as much as I had making them. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you've all been having a great weekend.

Another Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,

Yes, .... again I have another birthday card to show you. I think almost everyone I know has a birthday in the first few months of the year, so I'm sure you'll be seeing plenty of them from me for a while ... lol

I love this gorgeous Magnolia image ..... I just received her in the mail a couple of days ago and couldn't wait to start colouring. This beautiful Kaisercraft paper is fantastic too .... so pretty and girly.
Anyway, I'm off to watch the return of Grey's Anatomy ..... can't miss a second .... lol.
Take care,
Honor xo
