Wow!!!! so many cards to show and not enough time!!!

Just a quick post from me today, as Katie has hi-jacked my lappy to play the games on Facebook (my name if you wanna add me is Shell Swinscoe) as shes only 12 she uses mine...

This is another LOTV stamp I got whilst I was at the NEC and its the first time I've used it, had fun deciding what colour to do the horse in the end Katie chose lol

Such a sweet image, reminds me of when I was little and going horse riding with my Auntie Alison....
I have taken this close up so you can see where I have used my glossy accents...I do love these, I thought they were expensive for what they are, but they are gonna last forever...Its my first try at using my blender to take away colour. I have done the stable door using this technique..not sure if I've done it right tho...

Challenges entered with this is LOTV whos theme is 'Here Comes The Summer'
And Totally Papercrafts whos theme is 'stitching' be it real or faux..
