Love birds

Good afternoon, I'm just back in from walking my fur babies, they are all flopped out in the sunshine. I have the doors open listening to the birds singing it's bliss

My post this afternoon is showcasing more of the gorgeous Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps new release

I've used A Mother's Love stamp but for an Anniversary card just to show that these stamps are versatile:


I stamped and colored the image using alcohol markers. Added the Happy Anniversary sentiment which is also part of the new release. I then die cut some hearts in various sizes and made up some pink and white blossoms to go on the branch. The image was then matted onto pink card. 
I used a pre- printed card base and added pink ribbon before arranging my topper. I then made a ribbon bow and embellished this with a pearl.

Don't forget if you order this week use the coupon FREESHIP and any orders over $15 will ship free!!!

Pop on over to the New Release section of the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps website where you can see all the stamps being released this week.

I'm a little late it has been such a hectic weekend - but Prickley Pear have a new release this week and wow have they got some fab new stamps some of which I will be showing you this week. If you order this week use the coupon FREESHIP and any orders over $15 will ship free!!!

Today I'm kicking my show casing off with some adorable note cards. part of the new release are some adorable farm yard critters and 6 sentiments which go with them so I have made a themed set of notelets using the same design, papers and embellishments throughout:

First of all is Bessie the cow:


How sweet is she! I have colored 2 of her with Alcohol markers and added the matching sentiments What's Moo and An Udder Year Older. They are die cut and added to the cards which are both matted with coordinating papers. A few gems just finish the design.



She has I miss Ewe and Ewe Ok? sentiments

Last but not least my favorite is Prissy the Pig


Hasn't she got the most adorable name!!! Her sentiments are I'm Sow Excited For You and Sow's Things.

Mushroom Lane is expanding!!

Good evening! There has been some building working going on down Mushroom Lane

There are some new houses and even a store there now - the village is growing well.
I'm going to show you a couple of the new houses - I love the first one:


Welcome to Tree Stump House I have colored the image with alcohol markers and inked the background stenciling clouds to make a scene. I then matted some ditsy floral paper and my image with red card drawing out the color of the door and windows - oh and the little ladybugs that are crawling around if you look closely.
I thought the Me or The House funny bones sentiment was fitting and I added the little die-cut squirrels as embellishments as I thought they worked great with this house.

The second house is The Butterfly House


Again colored with alcohol markers and matted on red card. I used a Kraft colored paper with tiny flowers on it on my card base. 
A computer generated new home sentiment was added along with some rik-rak ribbon and pink enamel dots
