Hiya peeps, another cold day today and I'm full of cold as well and have been sniffing all day, my little nose is quite red now.So I was in need of some crafting therapy so I've finally got round to playing with my Wee Stamp called Wee Suzi, I have to say these stamps are soooooo sweet and I loved colouring this one in, I used distress inks and sakura pens, the background of the image has been painted very subtlely with distress inks, I love the effect that you get, you just have to be patient to wait for it to dry.The papers are new and are from Papermania. I could only get the sentiments in silver and being as I don't have a suitable stamp I had to make do, then I thought I might be able to use alchohol inks to colour them......and yes you can, I then added star dust stickles on the top......you get a real sparkly sentiment. So I think I'll be doing this again. The flowers are from Wild orchid Crafts whose challenge this week is to....... use a punch as well as a die, other challenges this week are: Stampin' B who want to see .......bling on your card, The Stamp Mans challenge is .......floral with the theme of Mothers Day,I followed the sketch over at ......Sunday sketch and Stamp.

Obviously card making and scrapbooking I only got into this after the birth of my grandson . Gardening, although this usually gets done by hubby now as I have too many pics to scrap,knitting and eating chocolate. My other passion is holidaying in Italy......such a beautiful country to visit.
