New Wee digis

Sorry I was AWOL yesterday .. .. I will explain why later on. Today though you can get your hands on more new digi stamp designs from Cuddly Buddly's artists - I got to play with a couple of Sylvia's new Wee designs, this first one is the Wee Florist, and isn't she a darling!

I'm showing you the close up of my colouring first - with Copics of course. My usual skin tones of E000, 00, and E21. For her hair, shoes, trousers and the pot I've gone for the E40 range up to E44. The pinks are RV00, R81, 83 and 85 with green leaves in G40, YG41 and G14. The blues are B0000, 000 and 00. The text greeting is a new one from Bits of Ivory's circular sweet summer sentiments and I've used various pieces of digi papers from Cuddly Buddly. My floral embellishment is created with various Marianne dies plus a Nellie's Choice die cut heart and little punched butterflies. Now here's the card in full .. ..

The Allsorts challenge is free and easy again so I can enter with them, while the Papertake Weekly challenge is for cute so I'm with them too.

My reason for going missing, and for being AWOL quite a bit in the coming months, is we are going to be moving. My regular readers will know that I recently lost my Dad and my Mum lives across the other side of Cornwall, which takes a good hour to drive too. We had planned on looking for a home to suit us all, but everything is way out of our price bracket. So, after discussions with the family we have decided to, subject to planning permission, extend her bungalow allowing us all to live together - and just a few miles from the sea! It's going to be a hassle as we are wanting to sell up here asap due to our own predicaments with the business and current economic climate, so we will be moving into Mum's small spare bedroom and garage until the works are complete. It will be a phased build with lots of moving about of stuff as each room gets a make-over. There's a total rewire of the whole bungalow and new heating systems to be installed - and then once the building work is done, I have a blank canvas of garden to develop that's currently just lawn and a few small flower beds. So, although I want to keep a little of my craft stash available to enable me to colour and chill - I'm not sure how many coloured images will be made into cards if everything is put into boxes. Instead of sharing my craft creations with you, you might be seeing pictures of a building site instead!

  11. You probably know already how I LOVE your card Annie. It is sooo gorgeous I kept looking on it for hours today and I know it by heart now I guess. The softness of your creations is simply stunning!

  12. Those rolled flowers are just delightful - especially the way they pick out your colouring of the image's floral elements & your ribbon. Sounds like things are going to be quite a handful so do take care of yourself whilst all this is going on.
    Much love & please take care.
