On The Way

Hiya everyone. Quickly want to get this up before I head out to work, but I'll update it later when I'm back after darts. A loooong day ahead of me! :( Yuck!!

Here is another card I've created as a commission using LOTV - On The Way. LOVE this stamp. So versatile. It will be getting used a whole lot more before the season is over too! :)

This is another "secret" commission, so I gotta keep my button shut as to who it's for. I hope the lady in question likes it. Shes a huge fan of my work, so much so, she thinks I should go wholesale! LOL. Crazy girl. I told her that wouldn't work. People love my cards so much as they're usually OOAK and handmade, well.. I hope that's why they love my cards. Card makers ability to personalise cards any which way is something which appeals to a lot of people me thinks. 

Another slice of delicious paper from Basic Grey Jovial collection from last year. Can't get enough of it this season. It's slowly getting used up anyway, and that was my aim. :) No more paper sitting looking pretty in my drawer for months/years! LOL.

Here is a HYAAAUGH picture of the coloured image, so you can see all of my flaws and mistakes. But that's what makes a coloured image unique, right? No two are ever going to be the same. I've coloured this one slightly differently to the last, but still in traditional coloured. Love that little heart tree.. can't remember the proper name of the shaped shrubs.. KWIM? But it's cute all the same.

Have a good day, whatever you're doing. I wish I was still in bed. Is it just me, or is it harder than ever to drag yourself outa bed when it's still dark outside?! 

I'll update the post later on tonight, with supplies and challenges.
