Another Stippled Blossom

Hello fellow bloggers, hope you are all well and enjoying this wonderful weather.
I just do not know where the time is going these days.  I have said it before but I find I go to bed on Monday night, waken to find its suddenly Friday ... how does that happen???
I mentioned the other day when I did the post with the set of cards, I love using my StampinUp Stippled Blossom Stamp Set (retired) it is my "go to stamps"  I was asked by a lady to do a very simple card with yellow.
Here is the card I did:-

Images stamped on to Samuel Taylor Card
Yellow card for matting from my stash
A simple card for today.

Thank you for your visit I really appreciate you take time to call in.
Till next time

My Happy Accident!!!

Hello Blog friends and followers hope you are all well.  Thank you so much for my welcome back to Blogland, and for all your lovely comments.
We seem to be drifting between Summer and Spring here in the North East of Scotland. There is nothing much we can do about the weather so we just have to go with the flow as they say!!!
If you happen to have landed here because you pressed a wrong button ... welcome.  Please stay a while and have a look round, I love having visitors.
After meeting Maureen Killen a couple of years ago I have learnt so much about colouring.  Maureen makes beautiful cards, most are stamped and coloured.  I have crafted in lots of ways since a little girl "many years ago".  Like most little ones I did colour, always had colouring books and pencils. However it was never like the amazing things we have on offer today.  
I have a few Digital Images that I decided I would print off to send to Maureen to help her pass the time while she is not able to get about after her accident. The image I am showing I mistakenly printed in A4 size.  I was just going to use the back of the paper as scribble, then thought I would have a go at actually colouring it.  It is rather big and a lot to colour,  I have done it, I still have lots to learn but I am quite happy with it.
I printed the image from a My Besties CD by Sherri Baldy.
I used Prisma Pencils to colour

My friend Elaine spotted and admired it, she has three Granddaughters so I gave it her . She said she would frame it for the girls Playroom.    I would not have used it, we have no girls in the family.

Having printed it off A4 by mistake I have decided to call it "My Happy Accident"

`cepta  plus anyone else interested in making any of the Origami Boxes on  http://flowersribbonsandpearls.blogspot.co.uk/ the 12x12 paper packs from "The Works" is perfect for making them.
Here are pictures of 2 of the packs I have.  I have had mine for a while and actually think they now £4 put still well worth the money.



Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
