For a healthy heart

...exercise your faith. This lovely sentiment is by TCP Studio.
A sweet little Tilda card to share with you today.
Designer paper is from Basic Grey June Bug collection. The image is coloured with pencils and then cut out. The background is sprayed with Glimmer Mist Cross My Heart using a template that I cut with the Cricut from the Storybook cartridge.
The picture quality is not ideal, but I would like to show you how I coloured her skirt, trying to mimic the paper.
The sentiment is a stamp from TCP studio, stamped in red and then raised with Glossy Accents. The branch and the flowers are from Magnolia, the corner die is from Spellbinders.
Just a quick view of the inside of the card.

Happy Mother's Day

A happy day to all mothers, but especially my very own dearest and darling mother.
The designer paper is from Basic Grey June Bug. The card is embossed and left largely blank so there was room to add a handmade paper tissue flower. The flower is sprayed with Glimmer Mist Bubblegum. The leaf is from Spellbinders.
The image is from Lili of the Valley and coloured with polychromos. Unfortunately the paper got a dent in it and it looks as if she has a dirty cheek now :). The sentiment is from Woodware.
Enjoy your very special day everyone. Hugs.

Get well

After having disappeared off the globe...
Not really, I was still around, but free time has been reduced to nothing. Where I used to be able to enjoy the odd day off and fill it with crafting and homework, now I have hardly any free time.
Work has become an ugly beast and demands all my time. At work, there have been big changes as the clinic manager has left and I have resumed the acting role; not easy doing the work of two.
Hopefully in the near future, things will change for the better and I can get back to regular crafting. I am still fortunate to call myself fairly young :) and have luckily enough energy to share.
Some exciting occasions on the horizon: a baby shower, my friend's bridal shower and a wedding,... meaning enough crafting opportunities and ideas coming in floods...
I have made some cards and this one today is a get well card.
The designer paper is from Melissa Frances Kitchy Kitchen.
The stamp is from Motivet and coloured with Faber Castell polychromos pencils. I am still very disappointed that Motivet has left the UK market. I am not even sure if they are still trading. They used to have such delightful images. I am glad I bought them when I did.
I did an effort to decorate the inside of the card as well. I think since 2012, I have been treating every card this way. The sentiment on the front and inside are from Crafty Secrets Feeling Yucky collection.
Hope to be back with a post soon, thanks for all the visits even when I was not posting. Hope to hear from you soon.
