For the first one I just cut everything from ivory and black card and paper and used a bit of Wink of Stella on the guys jacket lapels and the car windows.

I have just finished knitting my second ever pair of socks, they turned out quite a bit better than the first pair I'm happy to say and I have already started another pair.
I love how each sock is different from the other, I used Moda Vera Noir  yarn which I got from Spotlight it comes with the free pattern on the back of the label.

thanks for looking

Orchid Cards

I've been making orchid flowers with a couple of different orchid dies as well as creating different backgrounds using some of my older stencils with ink pads and sponges.

This first card was made for Kaaren at FATCATS card corner

The same orchid die was used for this one as well, the corners were done with a Marianne Designer stencil EE3441, which I embossed and then sponged over with ink while still in the stencil.
The Happy Birthday is from the Impression Obsession Sentiments die set.

This last one uses the branch from the he Marianne Collectibles Orchid die and stamp set.
but the flowers are from the Dee's Distinctively die set.
The stencil used was the Marianne Design EE3404
Butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.
Stamp is Lily of the Valley

Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate you taking the time.
