Marianne Creatables Button Flower Die, Flower and Leaves Die and inside is the Forest Branch Die

Hanglar and Stanglar Stamp
She was a right 'poser'!

I hope you had a super BH weekend. I spent most of my BH Monday unpacking and washing dirty laundry!

We loved our holiday on the beautiful Isle of Mull and saw some wonderful wildlife.

As I post for a few days I will put up a link to Daisy's Diary  so you can see some photos, if you wish, that my husband took as we enjoyed our visit there.

Daisy posted everyday so there are lots to look at and both Holly and Daisy had many adventures! (tic)

The 'Thank You' card above, uses some 'parts' of  THREE  Marianne Creatable Die Sets. The top button of the Button Flower Die and both sets of leaves from the Flower and Leaves Die, on the front of the card along with the Forest Branch Die for the inside of the card

I bought all the dies from http://www.craftsulove.co.uk/ who are free P and P until tomorrow 31st August !

Coloured with Copic Markers and Polychromos Pencils

The image is coloured with Copic Markers and Polychromos pencils and I used a White Gel Pen for the mega amount of doodling!

 The sentiment image is a LOTV Stamp, cut with a small circle nestie.

Doodle all the way!

Forest Branch Die used inside the card.

I only managed to make two and half cards while we were away.

I took shed loads of crafty stuff but because we had such good weather ( usually rains a lot in the 'Highlands!) we were out and about most days!

 I have a lovely Christmas card to show you tomorrow, again, using a Hanglar stamp.

Please pop by if you can and thanks for looking today.

BTW, many thanks for the good wishes and lovely, lovely comments .....Super stuff xxxx

My followers are very special to me.

  3. WOW - what a great shot of an otter. Gotta show my husband that when he gets home!

    Lovely card too . . . wondered what you meant about the doodling until I looked closer (nose up against the screen) and realised the white dots etc were hand doodled and not pre-printed on the backing papers! Phew . . . that WAS a lot of doodling!

    Beautiful result tho Eileen. Just Lovely.
    Hugs, Sandra

  4. This is a great card as usual and brilliant use of the various dies - I've not seen that leaf one before (just might need to add it to my collection).
