At Last...

At last I have made something! There has been an extraordinarily long journey before this picture. A journey of finding space and time, two of the most difficult elements to locate for a busy working mum in a tiny home.  But I found it and oh how I've relished that moment! After years (12 to be precise) of waiting I've managed to shoehorn myself into a spare area and can sit down with my things around me at a moment's notice and MAKE.

And there she is in all her glory! It's a Lili of the Valley stamp Positively Pampered - I'm working on building a collection and this is one of my favourites.  She's coloured with Inktense pencils which I'm still learning with.  The die is the stitched rounded rectangles from Die Namics. Love ittttttttt

But oh wow it's an actual card - it's been a few years since I've got anything to completion so forgive me for trumpeting this moment! 


  1. Hi Lisa, this is such a sweet card. I love my Inktense pencils and you've done a good job with them here. I was looking to follow you but I dont see a followers widget on your blog.

  3. This is lovely!!!
    Thanks for your lovely comment on my polar bear image today. I've just checked the colours I used and I used E51 and E000 - Simples!!! I was a bit scared when I started, but it was actually really easy to colour and I did like it when I'd done! I just did a lot of 'flicking'!!
