Busy busy bee

Been really busy lately with birthdays etc but have taken as much opportunity to make some cards too! Finding it really relaxing lately especially using the magnolias and sugar nellies, they're fab!

First up, mummy's day card.



Now this one I made is Tilda baking and practiced the blending DTP technique using marvy le plume pens. Turned out nice I think and I'm getting there with the blending!







This one is for the easter parade swap on the yahoo group. I used 2 shades of brown watercolour pencil to draw the lines on the "chocolate" then went over them with a damp brush so its got tone, shadow & depth. The egg is made from tonertex foil & the stamp is a sugar nellie - Nellie sitting (Ive since changed the flower as it was too bulky)


This one is Sheilakins birthday card. I know her birthday is around now but she wouldnt tell me when! I trawled through pages of her old posts on yahoo until I found it so now I KNOW!! Will be in the post next week after the storm has passed. This one is also a Sugar Nellie (Lola with flowers)

Hi Vix, how is it going? Is everything ok? When is the baby due? or did you already have the baby? Questions, questions, questions. But I need answers :-)
