March Celebrations in Scotland

I have been a busy bee this week, what with working on my new addiction and trying to get the Race Day programme finished, I wanted to get two cards done for two very important people in my life - my Mam and Dad - for Mother's Day and Dad's birthday.  So relieved to get them all finished so that I nip next door to my neighbour, Fran,  who is heading home to Scotland next week and has said she will post my mail for me when she gets home.  Fingers crossed, all my mail should arrive in plenty of time.
For my Mam, I thought I would do a simplish card.  All the elements were from Cricut's freebie for this week, called Creative Cards.  Well apart from the letters, which were die cuts using my cuttlebug and the brads and pearls.

Cards for Dad are now a bit more difficult, since he lost his sight.  Do I do something very plain or do something with an image. After thinking about it for a day or so, I decided why should I not put in the normal effort, as Mam can always describe the card to him. When I had a look through my digital stamps and came across Cecil, I knew that I would be using him. 

The final card, that I have done this week, isn't one for posting.  It's for a good friend's birthday and will be hand delivered.

One more card to do for the beginning of March celebrations, so better go and get cracking.

Ladies Day

I have been working on a project for a competition back home for the Buchan Group of the SWRI.  My contribution is a programme for a Ladies Day at the Races.

My image, coloured with promarkers, is Abigail from Just Inklined.

New Addiction

My name is Linda and I am addicted to jewellery making, lol, thanks to my buddy, Linda J (aka Pinklilacs)
So under the instruction of Dana at Celebrations of Art, the craft shop that can be found in one of my favourite cake and coffee shops in Bahrain, I make this bracelet.  So chuffed with how it turned out.  Now working on my second piece - a necklace.

Stella Time

Have three cards to show today all with a 'Stella' theme.  The first one is a 60th birthday card for a good friend and I know it will appeal to her sense of humour and the sentiment is very apt just now!!!

The next two are ones that I did at a copic colouring class (although I use my own promarkers/flexmarkers) that I have started going to, to help me hone my colouring/shading technique.  I have to say that with the 'I see the F*@K-up Fairy' sentiment allowed me free rein with the colours and embellishments.
