Dream a little Dreamee!

What a week! Am I glad it's Friday! Yesterday, I finally got to play with the box of goodies sent to me by Carol over at Dreamees. Firstly, I must apologise for the state of the photos. I had intended to take the pictures in the day time with good light, but my dear BFF came around and we spent all afternoon chatting and then realised we had to scoot to get our little ones from school! It's a hard life!

I decided to make a page book as I haven't attempted one in ages. The little lady is Summer with Roses and the backing papers are from the Dreamees Forever Florals CD. Ooh and look, I got to use that fence again! lol. I've used Bev's template for the clouds again - needs more practise but I do love to do it when I can be bothered to make a mask!! I've coloured with copics: R85, R83, R81,  RV0000, G20, YG61, YG63, YG67,BV01, BV00, E29, E25, E23, E50. The flowers are from WOC and the ribbon from my stash. The inside looks like this:
The tree image is again Dreamees called the Flower Tree and I've gone around the edge of the image in pale pink ink with the cherry blossom stamp. The sentiment is also form Dreamees. I also used the X-Cut Flower Doily border bunch (another fave).  Shall we go for a side view too? Hmm, death by photo overload!!
I have another card - can you bare to stick with me? I got to use my new French Pastry Doily Die (Cheery Lynn Designs from Joanna Sheen) and my Magnolia Doohickey butterfly. I still have white pips all over the floor from die cutting so I think I might even get the vacuum out! There's something about circular easel cards I just love:
I love this cute watering can! It's coloured with copics: C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, the greens as before. The flowers, ribbon and lace are from WOC - where would we be without them? Okay, last photo, I promise:
Again the papers are from the Forever Florals CD. This CD is great because all the pinks/lilacs/greens are the same shade and tone - some CDs have pinks but they're all different tones and when you put them together they just look odd - or is that just me?
I think I need a lie down in a darkened room after that! Tomorrow I have a card to post that is way out of comfort zone - in shades of grey, black and yellow! Yellow, me? I only have two yellow copics so it was quite a challenge. Not sure how I feel about the card but I really enjoyed making it.
I'm definitely going now. I'm going to do some h*******k, or I might just spray some polish so my man THINKS I've done some ! Hehe. NCIS tonight, yippee. Hugs, Jayne xx

I'm entering the circular easel card into the Joanna Sheen 'Spring is in the air' challenge but the picture on their challenge list shows a tip of watering can - long story but I'm in hysterics here!!!!!
