The Sun Is Shining


I am so happy because the sun is shining the garden is showing signs of life and I have time to craft. Doesn't get much better than that does it? ;0) I felt about 8yrs old colouring this in. I could of gone for the copics as I often do when colouring but I wanted that child like quality. The stamps are from Dyan of Dylusions I love the body and mushrooms the rest including the head I did my self The inks are tim's for the back ground.


I used to draw girls all the time in class with my friend Paula. But I would never had drawn them for a project because they are so child like but looking at Dyan's head (provided with the stamps) as lovely as it was I wanted something different, so I drew my own and then I thought why not the house and hills as well? even mr sun is smiling so that is what the sun did to me today lol maybe I should stay in the shade ha ha. This also fits well in the the Artistic Stamper challenge whitch is 'Spring is sprung' and while I am at it I will include it in to Tag Tuesday  'Spring' and the wonderful Rebecca has take over the mantle of the lovely Louise. 


I made an ATC on Friday with a new sheet off a friend of mine, you may well know her as Land of Nod Studios Well the lovely Debs has now decided to do some digi sheets and they are gorgeous, go and have a look for your self HERE I have already bought some and I love them. And on her blog she gives images away every Friday they are not to be missed.


Here's a close up of the images I used. I inked and stamped the back ground with some crafty Individuals love their stamps and Malcolm is a little angel bless. I stuck the ATC on to a cheap little note book to take with me to Harrogate to write down e-mail addys and ideas I saw. I hope you like my items today I had lots of fun making them. Love Dawn xx
