Oh My!!

Good morning well I am finally sorted out and the garden is complete, what a nightmare it turned out to be, we got it all ready and yes that includes me, the driver came with the stones and dropped them on the path, he couldn't get his truck in the garden as it was to heavy and would have cracked the drainage system, so we spent the full day with a spade shoveling it to the garden, I swear I used muscles I never even knew existed I am so stiff even today, the kitchen floor ended up being a mud bath it took me ages to get it clean and then it was dirty again sigh, but it has ended up being really good as Lids can now park in the garden so no more scratches and bumps on her car and it will save her £70 a year in parking fees for parking in the street :0) I have been behind on my card making and comments as it took a lot longer than expected, but well worth it....




I even got Sam out there helping too, it doesn't look very big here but it is a size...



I saved all the plants in the edges as my twins rose bushes are there and I spent a lot of reflective time here, and it looks so nice when they are all in bloom...



I had a super quick colour of this cutie she is from The Paper Shelter and called "Oh My!!" I see both my girls in her they are always playing with our cats like this, she is just coloured with pencils and I added a sentiment and some glitter, thank you for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

I have coloured her with my pencils, I added some strips of scrap paper and used the bits for butterflies, I added a sentiment from "Set 31" and of course some glitter, another card for my hospital pile, thank you so much for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

Liddie with owl

Good morning today I am sharing another attempt at a bit of mixed media, I took inspiration from this photo of Liddie with a big ass scary owl, now remember I am just learning to draw so it is a simple make...




She has a thing for owls like I do with butterflies ( I am scared of real ones like I mean scream and run a mile ) so I wanted to make her a picture using an owl ewwwww I need more practice with drawing but I am enjoying myself and having so much fun, I tried to giver her arms and hands instead of sticks :0)




I drew my image and then used lots of scraps of paper, and then painted over them with pastel crayons and tombow markers, I added some die cut trees and clouds and wrote a little message and them I painted my girl and owl, I added stickles and lots of white paint I used a derwent watercolour pencil for the outline but should have used a charcoal one still its a learning curve, Lee just bought me an A4 watercolour art journal so I can play in that instead of on separate sheets he knows how to make me so happy, thank you for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

A card for a friends hubby

Good morning wow it has been a while since I posted on my blog, I have been so busy with the big clean up and sort out that happens this time every year and  ended up pulling out my back so I have spent long days on the sofa and bed with nothing to do but doodle in my little water colour journal, I have to say I actually enjoyed my time out and spent lots of time with the kiddos too, today I am sharing a card I made for a friend for her hubby, he doesn't do fussy so I went simple....

Over on Kim's blog "HERE" she has a Show Your Face post, I have been looking for a while and decided to join in, so no laughing but here is my first face...
