The wonderful world of Oz…

Morning lovelies, I hope you are all well ? 
Firstly thank you so much for all your lovely and supportive comments recently, I am truly blessed to have such fantastic friends and your comments really do mean the world to me xx
Over at Visible Image  to celebrate 75 years of The Wizard Of Oz they have realised some fantastic Oz themed stamps. The Stamps can be found here 
I got to play with the fab Tin man  and wanted to share one of my cards with you today 
I have used the castle from Once upon a time set and created this scene…I am rubbish at scenes but really wanted to do a Emerald city and Yellow brick road style. 
I have coloured the Tin Man and all the card using my Spectrum Noirs and added some glitter to the Castle to give it the Emerald look. 
The rest of the design team have been really busy creating some amazing samples, make sure you head on over to the blog to check them out. 
Happy Crafting

I hope you like her 🙂

Visible Image September Challenge Make It Sparkle

Morning lovelies, It is 1st of the month which means new challenge time over at the Visible Image Blog 
The theme is Make it sparkle and you could win £20 to spend on lovely stamps, just make sure you have used a Visible Image Stamp ! 
For my DT make I have used : 
And the Sentiment from Fae Stamp Set 

I have stamped onto Crafter’s Companion Watercolour Card  and then coloured using my Spectrum Noirs- LV3,PL5,PL4,PL3,PL2,PL1. I then used my glue pen and went round all the stamped lines and sprinkled over some glitter. 
I am really happy how this turned out….especially as i am not really a glitter person. It is also a special card to me…I am not a very public person about my health, but among my various problems I have a condition called Fibromyalgia…is it a horrible lifelong disease, the butterfly is embraced as the symbol for Fibro  (a brilliant explanation can be found here ) and purple is also the fibro colour, the sentiment just seemed perfectly fitting too. 
Don’t forget if you don’t have a blog you can still enter the challenge, just head on over to the Facebook Group and enter via there 🙂 
Cannot wait to see your entries. 
Good Luck and Happy Crafting
