Here is my second half of the year favourites selection. This is July's choice more butterflies and flowers I am afraid, a card and a set I made for my friends birthday.
This is Augusts choice and as you can see they are Lavender bags that I made with the harvest from my garden in. I had a idea after seeing lots of lavender products in the south of France whilst on holiday. I was really lucky when Judy came to my rescue with this gorgeous stamp, perfect for the task. I have just coloured the image with Copic Markers (They work great on fabric)..
The card is a paper pieced image from Tiffany Doodles, like most crafters I find masculine cards quite difficult.
September and a card for a Moxie Fab challenge, not much stamping on this one but I am pleased with the result , also another card set. Love making these as they are great gifts for friends.
Octobers are both cards I made for a Lily Pad sketch challenge, I was lucky enough to win with the top card and received some fabulous new stamps to play with!
These two are my November choice, I love the green and black combination of the top card (really must use it more!!!) and the second card is a CAS one, I am really not a CAS person but have been trying it more and more this year!
Lastly my two for December although only one is a Christmas card, the top wreath card is again a CAS design and I was really lucky to win with this card over at The Moxie Fab Blog in their button challenge.
My village stamp is a new one in my collection, after seeing Franziska and Jacqueline use it so well over at the Hero Arts flickr site I added it straight onto my wish list. Clare saw a discussion thread about our wish list stamps in a flickr thread and offered to send it to me. You can imagine how thrilled I was with it.
I really love being part of the Hero Arts flickr group, I have made many friends over the last couple of years and am constantly inspired by all the work showcased there. The ladies are a truly talented bunch and I am really thankful that I stumbled across it while surfing the net !!
Thank you all for all your lovely comments on my blog and heres looking forward to another creative and fun year!!
