Boy Reading

Hello Everyone

Today I have for you a card using a digi stamp from Digistamp Boutique. It was a freebie a while back.  I have created this card for my nephew who loves books, so I thought it was apt.

I am entering it into the following comp:

Digistamp Boutique ~ September Comp

Items used:

Colouring medium ~ Copics & Prisma Pencils

Sentiment ~ LOTV
Liquid Pearls
Stickles Stardust
Card Candi

Well that's it from me today, off to the Isle of Wight with my mum and sister on friday for a long weekend. Looking forward to it. All girls together!

Thank you for visiting my blog and for any comments you may leave.

Have fun and take care

Jo Painting

Hello Everyone

Thank you for all the lovely comments you have left me with regards to my grandma, so kind of you. The funeral was 'lovely' I know some people may find that odd to say (Gordon did) but people wore touches of pinks/lilac/purple etc and hardly any black as it was a celebration of her life and she loved pretty colours. The thing that made it different I feel is that the hearse was silver instead of black! I think it gave the funeral a calming effect. 
The wake was lovely as it was held in a very large old house (Gordon used to go to senior school there) in a beautiful room which opened out onto the gardens.  The children played outside while the adults chatted inside and/or had a guided tour from Gordon. Think it brought back lots of memories for him.

Now onto my card, today I have made a card using an image from Mo Manning called Jo Painting, I just love her images they are so beautifully detailed and a pleasure to colour.

I am entering this card into the following challenge:

#151 ~ Anything Goes

That's all for now,  thank you for visiting my blog and for any comments you may leave.

Take care
