James Daisy

Hello everyone :o)

I couldn't resist the new James stamps from LOTV's recent release, even though I've got loads of stamps still to be used... at least I've got this one coloured in though!  Isn't he gorgeous?

I put a Polish sentiment on a card for Pav's Grandad today, and when Pav got in from work he announced I'd spelt one of the words wrong... funnily enough I don't speak any Polish and copied the sentiment exactly as he'd written it for me - apparently I was supposed to know there was a typo!  Flippin' men!

Off for a little catch up with your blogs... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)


  1. lol didn't you know we are all mind readers?!?! I love this card your colouring is fab :)

  2. He looks lovely Lisa. I keep looking at these stamps but have managed to resist so far.....hope I can hold out until the Hobbycraft show and then I can treat myself!

  3. Gorgeous James card. That colouring, particularly the sky is fabulous! I love the coordinating dazzler to the flowers.
    I read your post to my hubby who said, as he left the room quickly, had you not read his mind! Cheeky man. At least you can read Pav's writing even his typos, my hubby's writing is awful so I don't even try to read it. Have a good night. Debra x

  4. Gorgeous card! I love how you've done the sky and also your colour combination. Sharon x

  5. Beautiful card!! Hugs Anneke

  6. Your clouds look gorgeous! This is a super cute little number x

  7. I couldn't resist them either and bought all 10! Love your gorgeous card, James is coloured perfectly and I love the layout and floral papers. Hugs, Claire x

  8. This is beautiful Lisa. I love James and your colouring is perfect. I used him yesterday and he was a bit dark, but yours is lovely. The papers are gorgeous too.
    Love the bit about the Polish sentiment. It made me smile! :0)

  9. Oooo what an absolute sweetie, Luv Sam x

  10. I think James the bear is the cutest little chappie an I love how you have coloured him. The design is gorgeous.
    Have a lovely week Lisa.
    Hugs Sharon. x

  11. Crystal ball failure strikes again Lisa...happens in my house too. According to the "significant other" I should know what he means at all times!! Great card, I failed to resist some new James stamps and also had an "accidental" 3 for £10 today too...whoops!! xx

  12. Awwwww James is just so cute! Wonderful colouring - your sky looks amazing. I love the pretty papers too.
    hugs Sue xx

  13. Oh Lisa, this is just gorgeous! And I know what you mean about the new stamps being irresistable... I made the mistake of going to the shop on the Saturday, and no way was I going to walk out of there without a bag full of James! lol.
    I really, really love the colour you've used for James. I'm thinking I should invest in some brown copics, as the Promarkers aren't great for browns... x

  14. Oh bum, there was me hoping this would still be hanging around your craft room in July! Xx

  15. Aaawww just gorgeous Lisa! I couldn't resist little James either ;D

  16. This is just adorable, I,love the new release, but not got any pennies to get some yet 😕
