Abi - Digi Stamp Boutique

Hello Everyone, 
Thank you for all your get well wishes and your support (last post!) I'm starting to feel a bit better, and have attempted a little colouring. I won't say this was a quick one as it actually took me ages, as I kept breaking off for a rest!!
So here it is, using the very sweet Abi from DigiStamp Boutique. This is just one of the images from the set........
I coloured her with promarkers, and the background paper is from Craft Creations. The sentiment is computer generated and I've used an X-cut punch for the little flowers.

                                                    



Don't forget you can enter any of your creations using a Digi Stamp Boutique image into the monthly competition. The prize is a fabulous £15 voucher for the Digi Stamp Boutique Website.

Feeling Fed Up!

Hello Everyone, 
A few people have noticed that my blog has been a bit quiet over the last couple of weeks. Unfortunately it's because I've been quite poorly, I had a few days in hospital and I'm now home and getting stronger everyday. 
Today, I've been having a good day and being a crafter I'm itching to get colouring again. I thought I'd start by having a look at what you've all been up to......

Now I don't normally like to moan on here but I'm afraid I'm a bit miffed. I found a blogger who is copying my designs, colour, layout etc like for like. I know as crafters and bloggers we are here to inspire others and share our ideas, particularly when we are on Design Teams for companies/challenges, and let's face it, there are only so many ways you can stick paper to a card blank! I am always amazed that people want to look at my cards and I really appreciate all the feedback I get. If I inspire you to get crafty and make a card or colour an image that's brilliant BUT please don't copy my cards and enter them into blog challenges as though they are your designs. 

Rant over
