bonjour arc-en-ciel

Lawnscaping Challenge #134  is 'rainbows' and I love rainbows so much (they physics behind them is so elegant - did you know that the rainbow you see is your rainbow... nobody else will see that, your position makes it unique and just for you 🌈).

I don't know why  but as soon as I saw the challenge I knew exactly the card I wanted to make, I could see it so clearly (and I've nearly managed to make what I saw), it is not quite my usual style!

found this paper when

I found this paper precut when looking for my relax stamp, and so instead of putting it away again I used it up, go me!

relax - I've only lost two days of my life

So this was originally supposed to say relax, but I laid out the stamp, got a phone call, returned and it was no where to be found. Two days of taking my scrap space apart to try and find it have returned nothing so now I have a stamp set missing a stamp :(

british blue

I don't often get requests for specific cards, but when asked to produce a card of a british blue with dark silver stripes and to make it look as if a really talented cat had made it there isn't much more to say.

I think these Greeting Farm stamps are adorable, but the scientist in me just thinks 'yeah, that's never going to fly' :)

I needed another sympathy card, and at short notice I wasn't inspired so I reworked this card, with slightly more intense colouring.

abu dhabideen

Reworking the scrapbooking mojo. I've got loads of random photos that I just need to scrap, and this shot of the beech in Aberdeen (northern Scotland) was just perfect for a summery layout.

The title was based on an advertising poster that was around the town a few years ago (when I lived there), it makes the town sound exotic and tropical.

my little pony

I'm a child of the 80s - my friends had game boys, sylvanian families, care bears and build a burger! I had rainbow roller boots and my little ponies! I loved those my little ponies - I never had the castle, but I had all sorts of ponies - unicorns, a sea horse for the bath, flying ponies and basic ponies. Therefore when The Greeting farm released these stamps I just had to get, then they were out of stock and then they released a few more sets and so they all got bought together 💙.

The card is an attempt at colouring in with pencils.

Another scrapbook page after a couple of years....

Its a reflection of my life and living conditions (because of work my husband who is my best friend) and I live apart. It is a tale of how you just make the most of what you have and the time we have together.

more flamingoes!

I couldn't resist making another flamingo card (especially as I'd already coloured the flamingos), and so i combined with a lot of scraps from my desk to make this. It also fits the 'Anything Goes' Wednesday challenge on Simon Says Stamp (well anything would!)
