Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

I'm inspired.

Hello everyone - hoping this Tuesday is a good one for you. Me and my boy are having a quiet day, just chilling at home, I'll be crafting no doubt and he'll be playing on his game console and watching TV, you know, just chilling like teenagers do!

Anyway, I want to share a card with you that I've made using a stamp image from the very talented Krista. I've only recently found Krista's blog, but was pleased to realise I have come across her work before and I know I will be visiting her shop to purchase more images in the future too. This card is made with her latest 'freebie' - Boobies! Am sure you'll recognise the charity ribbon.



 I coloured this lovely girl using my Pro/Flex markers. I'm thrilled with my colouring, I don't mind telling you!


I also used my pens to colour the blossoms so that they matched in with the papers (which were freebies). I used my Lacy Square Spellbinder dies to create the centre piece for my image to sit on. I recently bought the lovely lace from the local Haberdashery and have been waiting for a pretty card to use it, this one called out for it I reckon.  I added the Thinking of You sentiment as I want to enter this card into the Saturated Canary Challenge 14 which is themed around 'Thinking of You'.

I'd love to know what you think, this is a style of card I don't always do, but reckon I should try and make pretty cards more often!

Take care Zo xx
