My garden friends

Hei, tänään olikin poutaa puolenpäivän jälkeen ja pääsin kasvimaalle kitkemään vesiheinää.
Meillä on pihassa iso pupu, joka syö ihan rauhassa nurmikkoa ja päästää parin metrin päähän. Sitten on neljä pientä pupua, jotka vielä mahtuvat kasvimaan aidasta läpi. Niitä on pitänyt hieman hätistellä etteivät syö mansikanraakileita. Kaikkia kasveja ovat maistelleet, joistakin pitäneet niin, että ovat syöneet kokonaan. Mustaherukat eivät olleet herkkua, oli vaan varsia katkaistu. Hauskahan niitä pampuloita on muuten seurata. Lisäksi pihalla tepastelee sinisorsa ja 7 poikasta!
Hi, nice afternoon at the garden, not rained! So much weeds, but the bunnies don't eat them, they like strawberries and my flowers. We have one big bunny mama and four little ones in our garden. Then we have mallard with 7 little ones.
 Korttien teko on nyt aika hiljaista, kaikkea uutta on tullut hankittua ja sormia polttelee. Mutta aika menee nyt ihan muuhun ( ja sairasteluun).
I've got plenty of new crafting goods, but have no time to spend at the studio and my arm is so bad.
It's been promised some warmer days, we had awful rains with hails (ice). Not swimmed a lot as the water on the lake is quite cold.
Tomorrow, it's my birthday and I will go to a concert!

Ruususilla ja kukkasilla onnittelen

Hei, osallistun Koukussa Kortteihin haasteeseen tällä kortilla.  Pirjon luonnos oli hauskasti sanallinen, mutta ihan hyvin tuo aukesi. Gorjuss tyttönen on väritetty Promarkereilla jo aikaa sitten ja muutkin palaset löytyi työpöydältä. Taustapaperi on Penny Blackin ja tuo kaunis, uusi tekstileimasin Finnstamperilta. Pitsi on isoäidin varastosta!
Hi, a card done with a sketch and mostly things lying around nearby my desk. The Gorjuss girl was coloured earlier with Promarkers. New stamp sentiment is lovely " With roses and flowers I want to send you heartfelt congratulations..." or so... The lace is very old, it's from my grandmothers things.

Poppy gem

Hei, vihdoin sain itselleni näitä Penny Blackin tekstileimasimia ( uusia akryylisettinä).
Unikkoleiman laitoin Mistin sisään ja väritin suoraan leimaan ääriviivat Zig Clean Color Real Brush vesiväritusseilla, sitten suihkaus vettä ja lopuksi vähän tasausta värien ja kostean pensselin kera.
Tekstin leimasin Versafinen harmaalla ja kohotin värittömällä jauheella.

Kiitos kun kävit;-))m

Osanottokortit

Hei, eilen jo esittelin muilla somekanavilla nämä kaksi suruvalittelukorttia. Tässä vielä tänne blogin puolellekin. Laiska bloggari ei nyt ehdi kaivaa kuvia tuolta erillisestä laitteesta. Aika on kulunut ihan pihalla, taas on tullut kaivettua vaikka mitä, ja kropassa huomaa, auts.
Hi, two sympathy card made with Penny Black stamp and Zig CCRB watercolour markers.
