Digi print from Power Poppy


Power Poppy

Another simple digi download from Power Poppy. I love the clean lines of this finished card. Simple sentiment also part of the download.
Used rainbow paper for the mat as it tied in well with the colours I had chosen.

Power Poppy

A touch of Spring

I love colouring and so these  digi downloads from Power Poppy are great. Lovely fresh designs. I love this Spring Scene and used my watercolour pens for this card. I do not get these out much so it made a lovely change. What a delightful addition of the snail even though they play havoc in the garden!!

Mounted on Noble dies from Creative Expressions and then onto a card base using linen card which I only embossed for interest.


Groovi kind of cards

Groovi Cards

 At last got around to mounting my Groovi work.
I don't get much time for traditional "parching" these days so was so pleased when the Groovi System was introduced by Barbara Gray at Clarity Stamps.  Love the corner punch and also used on one of the pieces just as a feature rather than mounting layers.

Here's a link to the site where you can fnd Groovi products:
