Cant stop crafting!

Not much to show for three months and then you get two posts in a week, must be mad.

Have had a crafty week this week, even bought a copy of Craft Stamper after cancelling my sub in the depths of my crafty slough of despond.  Busy day today, housework, as we have family for lunch tomorrow so the table where I craft has been cleared.  Just the opportunity to share some of the cards I made last week.

Love this stamp (Stampers Anonymous), she looks so wistful. Stripey paper is Papermania, lips coloured with marker and given a coat of lipgloss (Glaze)

Another sheet from the Papermania pack, stamps by Darcies and I doodled round the edge with white pen.

...and now for something completely different, playing with my Copics before they dry-out from lack of use.  Don't you just love colouring in?  When my friend's boys were little (in their 30s now) I would head for the colouring book when I went round, kept me quiet for hours.  The background is Copic dots, like Pointillism (?) without the talent of a Seurat.

The last two photos are of the deco pages I made.  These will be in the post to USA for the swap I'm in but as the recipient doesn't visit my blog it is safe to post them here.  The theme was 'red' so lots of scope.  First one is a Blockhead stamp, Copics (again) and a sheet from the Papermania pack that started off black and white but I added touches of red to the flowers.  Also added a few 'dewdrops' to the poppy.
Second photo uses Artistic Outpost stamps and a variety of red colourings, including a Cranberry Adirondack pad that was one of my first ever purchases.  It has been re-inked many times but works as well as ever.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
