Thankful thoughts.

Well I have been a bad blogger of late, but just not been in the mindset to craft somehow and have been making the most of this lovely April sunshine.

However a kind blogging buddy sent me some card to trial in my printed off a digi image twice and got to work colouring and thus making a couple  of cards. The card is super smooth very white and went through the printer very easily. Also no smudging with the copics and the printer ink, though I left them to dry overnight before colouring.

Here they are..............first in pink...

and then in yellow.....

I softened the white card around the image with distress oxides in worn lipstick and squeezed lemonade.
The image I believe is s Uniko freeby digi with a magazine ages ago.

I do hope you are all keeping well and staying safe in these difficult times...thank you to all of those whose blogs I have visited that manage to give us inspiration and a crafty fix when some of us are lacking.

Thanks for stopping by today...I wish you all a good and productive week whatever you find to do to keep positive. I appreciate you all, am 'thinking of you' and 'thank you'.

Crafty hugs and well wishes
Love Carole xx


  1. Hi Carole, these are two fabulous cards. A really super digi and I love the soft colouring you've added to each of them. Stay safe xx

  2. These are really pretty clever clogs - I make such a poo job with digis!
    Bearing up here - painted a few fence panels before the back/hip decided enough was enough so have sat about watching himself finish the rest over the last 2 days!
    Managed to get through to the local garden centre finally today so placed an order - delivery was - I quote 'See you sometime this week'...... he is abput half a mile away so do you think he might be busy?????! Luv from me. xx

  3. Both are very pretty and beautifully coloured, my eye is instantly drawn to the yellow rose with just the touch of pink on the petals x

  4. Two beautiful cards, Carole. I especially love the pink one. xx

  5. Hi Carole

    What beautiful cards .. .. a great image .. .. and I love your soft distressing. The perfect finishing touch.

    So pleased you have got to enjoy the April sunshine.

    Every year I tell myself I am going to make the most of the weather and sit out and enjoy my garden more .. .. and every year I choose my craft pod in preference and regret it come Autumn! LOL!!!

    Love Jules xx

  6. Some mindset here Carole and I don't think we are alone, but like you have been grateful for the lovely weather of late, it helps lift the spirits.

    I absolutely love the design of this mage and it looks so pretty in both colourways, the design very much appeals to me, not unlike the bleuprints we used at Chocolate Baroque last month which I throroughly enjoyed working with.

    Take care and stay safe.

  8. What an eye-catchingly awesome design. I adore both versions and how modern + chic these makes are.

    Wishing you safe, serene, beautiful tail end of April.
