We are off to Wimbledon tomorrow - Pimms and strawberries and cream, what bliss xxx We have tickets for Monday (No 1 Court) and Richard said that according to the the forecast, we should hopefully be in for some nice weather!! Well that is the kiss of death isn't it, but we'll see lol xxx So just the one card tonight. I have based this on one of Katharinas fantastic sketches, which are just a joy to work with. The image is from Sally'snew and completely fab download - pop over to her blog and check it out. I will be doing more from this download when I am back next week. She has added a section for customer cards so don't be shy, let her know if you use her stuff and she will put it in her gallery so we can all share in everyones wonderful work. And last but by no means least, I have used one of the beautiful pins that the awesomely talented Penny has made. She is selling these on her blog so pop over and check them out. My photo does not do them justice because they are absolutely stunning. The ribbon is from my stash and the blooms and buttons are from the lovely Mich at Poppicrafts. The sharp eyed amongst you will notice that there is something different about the colouring in, and that is because I have used my new set of Prisma pencils and I haven't quite got the hang of them yet, so I think that it has let this card down somewhat. I have to be honest and say that I prefer my watercolours and when I am back from SW19 I am going to re-do this card with them and compare the 2. Have a great weekend, and fingers crossed that the sun shines on Monday xxx
I'm Dawny P.
I'm a freelance designer, craft tutor and demonstrator and I live in Chester with Richard, my partner of 15 years and our cat, Saffy. I'm mummsy to Nickie and Emma and Grandma to Kyla & Thea who are the light of my life.
I've always been a crafty girl and before making cards, I did pottery for many years and I had my own ceramics workshop.
I do have a proper job and I work full time but apart from demo work and classes, I also run a card club in Ellesmere Port which I started in October 2008.
As you can probably tell, life is pretty busy. And if that wasn't enough, we also breed birds of prey!!
