Morning people , today I can actually see the SUN sssh don't say it too loud I might scare it off, the hills are free from snow but it still feels mighty cold. So here is my card for today, I have used my Little Claire stamps for this image. Hope you like what i have done.
I know lilies remind people of funerals (but then all flowers do for me :) I am a plant kinda girl, but that's for another time)
I have coloured the image using pro markers , mounted onto  dark purple card, to tone in with the backing paper. Thanks for calling by, please stop and say hello Txx

Vintage Edgar

This is my Edgar stamp coloured in the Warm Grey selection of alcohol pens , he is a great stamp especially if you are into steampunk . I have then used stamps from the Time after Time stamp set to form a border around the card and the chronology paper from papermania.

A touch of red

Here is a card for a musical friend, I decided to uses monotone with a hint of red.I hope he likes the simplicity of it . I first stamped my new  musical background stamp on white paper then on black card and embossed it with with white. I cut it into strips then mounted it alternate. I then stamped the heart on the card  in real red and the happy birthday in black and finished off with a black button treble clef and red and white baker thread from a Christmas gift tag I up-cycled.

Hope you all had a great New year and any resolutions you have made are easy to keep, will make a positive difference to your life and are not a chore.
                           This is my first card,for 2013. A little time to reflect, hence the sentiment.

 Find the stamps I have used  here I also used the  Edgar stamp, who is very steampunk and works great with the time after tie stamp set. I coloured Edgar with my promarker Alcohol inks, cut him out of my card and applied him to the background paper.The edges of the card are inked with distressing ink to create an aged look.
Thanks for looking, if you need any information on the items I have used, or just to say you have visited please leave a comment. thanks Tania xx
