Wishing you brighter days!

I promise i will get off of the rain theme for the next make but I couldn't resit colouring this cutie up and putting her on a card :D
And then I saw the gorgeous new Wow! glitters and I just had to team them up with her. So this is really just a 5x7 card and an extra little bit of white card for the frame around her. The borders and the stripe have all been done with the amazing glitters and double sided tape. The glitters I used were Santorini (the blue one) and Celebration (the silver one). For the great little pink blobs I used my other new favorite thing enamel accents. This one is called pink gumball. The rain drop stamps and the sentiment are from Stampin' Up's Weather together set and the main lady is from Kraftin' Kimmie's Look for rainbows set. I coloured her using the following spectrum noir illustrator pens:
Skin: FS6, FS7, FS5, FS8
Hair: Black, BG6, IG2
Jeans: BT9, BT7, TB3
Shoes: BGR1, IG6

For this card I have used the super cute Frosty stamp that I have coloured with spectrum noir illustrator pens. I then used some foam pads to make him stand out from the background a bit. The sentiment is from the contemporary sentiments stamp set and stamped in memento black ink
 the design paper is from the spring sentiments paper pack. The twine is from the blue skies set. I put it all together with collall glue on a C6 card.




For this second card I have used some of the brand new Wow! Embossing powders, Avocado, misty sky and perissa. The back ground stamp is called Tropical and the sentiment is called friendship. The little gems are from the teal goody bag. The card is a 5x5 scalloped card and I put it all together with collall glue.

From tiny acorns

I just could not resist this little guy when I saw him over at Mo's digital pencil. I coloured him up with promarkers and then used some mica spray on a 4x4 card before drawing round the edge and finishing it off with a sentiment stamp from Krafitin' Kimmie's buds and blooms set. 
This image spoke to me most as I am just setting up my own online craft shop having been running craft getaways for a while I am branching out on my own and hoping that from the tiny seeds I can make something great. Time will tell. I have just ordered some of Mo's great images in stamp form from Penny Black and am waiting for them to arrive from America. I really want to try a support the companies and people who have inspired me in my own crafting and can't wait to get a fuller range in :D
If you like challenges and the chance to win prizes I am starting a challenge blog for the new shop and will be looking for a DT as well. The first challenge will be on the 10th of November at the Crafty Purple Frog blog so keep an eye on it.
