It's in the sentiment.....

Good afternoon Bloggers :-)

Hope you are all  having a lovely Saturday?

I have been busy with magazine work this last week but thought I better pop by and check in!!

It's a lovely afternoon here in Cheshire ..... the calm before the first of the Autumn storms it seems. I have just had half an hour battening down all my Gladioli in the garden in the hope they will survive the next 48 hrs as they are at their most beautiful just now - fingers crossed hey??  

 As you know I love my words/poetry/song writing as much as my crafting, so with these couple of cards I decided to combine the two :-)

I have had another play with the pan pastels with this first one, just using them to create a soft sky for the gorgeous bird from Sheena's A little bit Magical stamp range.

The sentiment from PaperArtsy for me fits perfectly with the fabulous wingspan of the Eagle.

For the second card I chose some lyrics from my favorite singer, the wonderful Thea Gilmore. This background is created using a combination of Luminarte Radiance Rain pourables and concentrates on water colour card. I adore the shimmer of these paints

The swirl on this card Is from the new Eclectic range from Darkroom Door - slowly but surely I am getting round to playing with all my new stash :-)

Well I hope you like today's cards. Thank you for stopping by

Have a great weekend and stay safe and dry

Crafty cheers for now
