Colorful Characters for Scrap Matrix September challenge

 Hello crafty friends.

Just a quick post today for Scrap Matrix September challenge; 

I almost left my run too late!

Have been dabbling with watercolour paints and drawing, 

but have no idea what I'm doing, so please be gentle.

I've been posting letters to two little Grand Girls in Victoria during the Covid shut down.  Trying to cheer them up as they've not been allowed out for weeks.  I think they will like these cards.

I used DecoArt Neon Acrylic Paint and

Art by Marlene, Bold and Bright Watercolours.

Thanks for calling in to say G'Day.

Cocoa Vanilla "Day dream" - Happy Together and Lovely you

Hello crafty friends, welcome to my much neglected blog.
One of my dear Sisters has been critically ill during the past six weeks and I've been helping her and the family.

But now I'm creating with the gorgeous new 
Cocoa Vanilla Collection, "Day Dream".

The colours and designs are perfect for these Birthday photos
 of my smallest Grand Girl and her big Sister.

Both these Girls are crazy about Tutus and have a big collection in all sorts of colours!

Thanks for calling in to say G'Day, and for any comments you care to leave.

Take care and keep safe.

Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge #262 Things with Wings

Hello crafty friends on this blustery warm day in Australia.

I'm a huge fan of butterflies and was tempted to join the

Crafty Cardmaker's Challenge #262

 calling for things with wings.

I used a shimmery pale green card stock for the base, before layering on a Sizzix thinlits die Cut, "Bouquet"

The Butterfly is also a Sizzix Thinlit, "Scribbly Butterfly"
I coloured it with DOX inks, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac. Then I added shimmer with Tim Holtz, "Bridal Tinsel" embossing powder.

The sentiment was stamped with Darkroom Door, "Happy Birthday" stamp and embossed with Tim Holtz, Silver embossing powder.

Thanks for calling in today, Happy Crafting and keep safe.
