Buckets of Love

I thought that I would try out some There She Goes stamps after seeing the lovely cards that Julie Lacy who is on their DT makes. I was really impressed how quickly they came over - less than a week - with very reasonable postage charges too which is always a big bonus. They are clear stamps and this set comes with lots of interchangable sentiments.
I thought I would have a try at sketch challenge 91 on the TSG blog and use the new stamps. I have had the Spellbinders die for ever but have hardly used it so I challenged myself this weekend to give it a go!
The base and frame are in pure poppy from Papertrey as is the ribbon and punched slip both in hibiscus. The hearts go well with the cookies over at a Passion for Papertrey challenge so I'll throw my hat in the ring for that one too!
I coloured the image with copic markers and whilst I was colouring I did another image and made it up in sunny yellows below -

It's freezing cold here in London right now - a really good excuse to stay in and play! Have a great weekend....

Oh I love them both! The red card... that Nestie is so pretty! The yellow is a very cheerful card!
Your coloring is awesome as always!! I am still afraid of Copics!

Lovely cards, Chris! I adore the use of those hat pins on your first card and the detailed dry embossing!
Thanks so much for throwing your hat into the ring with us on A Passion for Papertrey!
