Chef Nimbleknees

I think it all started when Nim saw the balloons tied to a gate. He did try nibbling them but really a mouth full of rubber is not that tasty. He smelt pie.. he couldn't see it but oh boy could he smell it! His nose started twitching like a divining rod and lead him past the gate and down the path and round to the backdoor and through the catflap. There was no-one about, all was quiet as Nim crept towards the windowsill where a pie was cooling. Nim had never been in such a kitchen before and gazed about in awe.. this is what he had dreamed about all those long cold nights in his cave. Here was warmth and wonderful smells and, and, and JAM!!!!

Do you have an idea how this story unfolds? Let me know and I will try and incorporate your idea into the story.

Printed onto neenah, coloured with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils.I then manipulated the image within Craft Artist 2 and added the kitchen. More details are on my blog. I hope you have a moment to visit me there. Sue x

My inspiration day for Rick St Dennis MFA digital stamps

Hi there everyone, it is my turn again to share my Elite Design Team work, here  on the Sparkle and Glitter Blog, 
today my project is a cute one, using '20 winks' this digital stamp is available in two formats, one with and one without the background/border. the one I am using today is without the border. 
I think she is such a cute fairy, taking a nap in a flower... it looks like a comfy bed, I think you will agree!

I coloured the fairy using copics 
the background to the image was done with alcohol ink and blender solution

the papers I chose to go with this delightful fairy are from Craftwork cards, 
the  butterfly edging die is tim holtz butterflight  cut in a corrugated brown cardstock and embellished with liquid pearls in petal pink

The flowers are cut from a papermania Oyster blush using the tim holtz tattered garland die, with more liquid pearls at the centre.
the decorative 'twizzles' were offcuts of the paper that I wound round my pokey tool!

I hope you have enjoyed this sweet whimsical card and to check out more of my work please check out my Blog!

My Knight in Shining Armour

This is a Valentine's card that I have made using a Rick St Dennis image called Knight for Sue. I love fairytales and that was my inspiration for this card. Ive coloured my Knight with copic markers and then fussy cut him out. Ive popped him up with foam tape onto a heart that I die cut and embossed out of red mirri card. I started with a red card blank then matted in silver mirri card followed by a paper from the new Kaiser collection XO. The sentiment is from the same Kaiser paper pad.
The copic Markers that I used are C1,C3,C5,E31,E35,Y23,Y38,B14,B18,R22,R24,R27,R29,E000,E00,E02
