Get Well Lisa

Welcome back to Cards by Kay this is a very special Blog hop for a very special gal who has been feeling a bit out of soughts lately and we all just want her to know we are thinking of her and hope she is feeling better soon ! So to the lovely Lisa Tyrell sit back and relax and enjoy your hop !

I have done something a little different instead of the standard card I have covered a note book for Lisa !

The stamp is a Smeared and Smudged exclusive rubber stamp and the back ground paper is from Delicious Doodles I have stuck on a couple of ting spiders and used a spider web die.
Lisa I do hope you are feeling better and I hope you enjoy your hop ! Just know that we all care about you and wish you nothing but the best !

Music Makes the World Go Round

Hi there welcome back to Cards by Kay ! This week over at Left of Centre Challenges the theme is Music Makes the World go round ! But I have decide to go Left of Centre for this challenge as I found this image and I couldn't resist I just had to color it and turn it into something ! This is a Sweet Pea Stamps image by the wonderful artisit Enys Guerreo I have so enjoyed doing this piece up. I have covered the front of a note pad  just a simple project but the image is so detailed and tells a story in itself that I wanted to show the image not what's around it !
 So I have taken a simple note pad and covered the front with a piece of black card and layered that with paper from Bo Bunny's Somewhere in Time collection, the flower is from Petaloo there is a small ribbon Rose one one side and a small black skull on the other , 3 stick on black gems in the bottom corner.
 I have used the following colors to color my image :

                                                           MAD QUEEN ALICE
