Artistic Inspirations DT Card

Good Morning to you all. Todays make is for Artistic Inspirations Challenge Anything but a card/Anything Goes, and today i have made a tag.
The Sponsor of this weeks  challenge is Floppy Lattes, hope you can pop over and take a look.

Floppy Lattes

I am really struggling to get back into making of any description at the moment and I'm afraid my ideas are pretty basic.  We had such a wonderful time with our daughters and families visiting i think it has left me a bit flat.  Hopefully the mojo will return soon and i can get back some ideas for making..

I coloured the image with pro markers and the backing paper was from stash as is the ribbon and gems.  I used a bamboo stamp that i had and used mega flakes for the spakle.

Thank you all for looking and for any comments left.

Things with Wings at CBN Challenge

Things with Wings at CBN Challenge Today, the Sponsor of this challenge is Imagine That - digis by Kris.

It took me a while to get back into the swing of things this week as I have had the most fabulous time with my two daughters and their families.  Having our three grandchildren altogether isn't something that happens often so it was a really special time here in Spain.  Also seeing Claire and Helen together is a very special moment for us too.  I would like to say a big thank you to Claire and Helen for making this a very special and treasured time for me, it was an early celebration of my 60th Birthday (in October) and early 40th wedding anniversary for Eddie and I  (in September) and it couldn't have been better.   We could do so much more here in the sun than we could have back in England or Ireland as the weather is so unpredictable.  The grandchildren seemed to have such a wonderful time, we have so many photo's that we are now sorting out and i am sure you will see a few here on the blog within the next week or two.

This was such a lovely Kit to work with and you can find it HERE
Coloured with copics pens.
