3 Birthday cards for great grandsons

Todays post is show you some gorgeous stamps I bought and they are made by Polkadoodles though not easy to get hold off in the UK

They are titled at the top "In a Pickle" left bottom "Hanging around" and the one of the right is "Sink or Swim" I love the way you can tell a story with them, theyve all be stamped onto white card and coloured with my copic pens, and they were all cut out with the Spellbinders dies.
Each of them I have used Graphic 45 papers and two with the "Dreamland" one and the other is from "Childrens Hour" I love the designs of them and hope they at least cover the images in someway.
Hope you like them.

Friends Always by Pink Ink designs

I fell in love with the image below, Im a right fairy believer since I was a little girl and love reading stories about them so it doesnt take much imagination as to why I wanted to colour this to.

I stamped the image onto a sheet of printing as I didnt have a book page big enough to use, I then used my colouring pencils to colour it and they are Karisma, Caran Dache Luminace, Prismacolour, Arteza, Karima and Lyra, I have quite a selection of different makes and they all have a different way of laying down.
Hope you like the end result.

Hi to all Crafters, 2 different uses of pencils

Good Morning Crafters, its been at least a couple of months since I wrote up and published a post for here, I seem to have lost my mojo to be honest and just been creating a bulk lot of different cards for birthdays, anniversarys and even Xmas Cards. But I did decide last week after seeing a card created with pencils on craft card that I would give it a go.
Also if your anything like myself and hubby we are starting to get a bit stir crazy having to self isolate and not being able just to get in the car and go of and do a decent shop, I have had terrible time trying to find delivery slots for our food, but luck was in I did find one last night and now have to wait until the 10th May before it eventually arrives, luckily I do a months shop and a time so have enough goodies in the fridge, freezer and cupboard to cover our needs till the shopping eventually arrives.

The above image the poppy is what I saw on the card and the one I decided to use for my own cards
I have also used a selection of pastels for the craft card and for the white card I used polychromos pencils.
The two craft card images I created by using a Heartfelt stamp which I stamped onto the craft card by Crafters Companion and then for one I used just a white pastel pencil by Derwent, and to be honest because I don't have so many colours I used what I have to colour the other these ones are by Creata.
The white card images are a download from Fred she Said and I printed it twice onto the white card which for these two I used card from Rymans, its a 200gsm smooth card though it probably would have been better on a slightly rougher textured one but it worked.
I then used several different pencils by Polychromo, Karisma and Caran Dache Luminance, I love each of them for different reasons, some are waxy and others smoother, its how they lay down and shade.
Now I have to create 4 cards with the images, not sure how I shall eventually do that but I suppose I had better put my designing head on.

Since writing my last post

Since writing my last post in November I have become a Great Grandmother to my forth great grandson and hes the son on my youngest Granddaughter shes created a beautiful little boy Elijah Anthony, and he weighted in at 8lbs 5ozs quite a big boy for her first baby but being  a young lady Im sure she coped well.

Being selfish I was hoping that it would be a little girl but no it seems like my Grandsons (5) and Granddaughters (2) and now 4 Great Grandsons, its not to be, maybe one day in the future one might appear.
