To "Die" For

I love the challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey this fortnight so I'm doing another entry (really I'd just like to win that stamp set!).

I bought quite a few of the Papertrey dies some months back but have not shown them much love so I got them out to play this weekend.

I stamped off a whole sheet of linen vellum with Dot Spot in shades of Aqua Mist, Spring Rain, Hawiian Shores and Spring Moss and just cut into four. The stamps are from fillable frames, round and round and Verve.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are all having a great weekend!

I think this one is my favourite - buttons and bling!

Year of Flowers - Roses

This is my first card with last months new PTI Year of Flowers Rose and it owes more than a few shakes to this gorgeous card of Maile Belle's. As soon as I saw it I had to try it.

I coloured the rose and leaves with copic markers and the sentiment comes from Damask Designs.

Here is a little close up of the rose - I have many roses but this is my favourite so far - it's just so big!
As I used my circle nestabilities to die cut the white circle (love that white space) I'm slipping it in for the latest challenge over at a Passion for Papertrey - please do go check out what the girls have made!

Tigerlilies for July

I am a bit late sharing my calender page for July - lots going on! I will share some photos of the other weekend with you shortly.

I stamped the flowers in memento black ink and coloured with Copics. I love the melon berry colours on the tigerlilies. These lilies always remind me of the day my daughter was born and my Mum and Dad sent us a massive arrangement and their sent filled the cubicle - I still resisted calling Felicity, Lily, after my Granny even with such gorgeous flowers!

Here's a little close-up of the tigerlilies

I always like to stamp a few extra images and with one I made this little card for my dear friend Penny who sadly lost her Mum 3 weeks ago. As I have used my Nestability dies I'm putting this in for the latest Passion for Papertrey challenge.

Projects at A Passion for Papertrey

I have another project over at A Passion for Papertrey as my last post as the featured stamper for June (yes I know it's July but we have been a bit busy around here of late)!

If you would like to see this and the rest of my set of aperture cards please do pop over and have a look.

There is also a Summertime challenge on too for the next two weeks so why not join in and you could win some Papertrey goodies!

Here is my card for the Summer theme:

Happy Birthday Felicity!

My baby turned 18 last week - please can someone tell me why time races by so very quickly! She has become a very lovely young woman and we are so very proud of her.

Here are some photos of family and friends especially for those family and friends that couldn't be with us on her special day - we missed you!

Proud Dad alert!

Paul and I felt under-dressed when presented with all Fliss's glamour!

With Rachel - her best friend since they were about 4 months old - don't they look so gorgeous!
