Sailor Boy!

Hi There,

15th of the month means reminder time for the current challenge over at Besties International . The theme is still Nautical or anything goes. Here is my card.

I make cards to sell so I'm always looking for images that can be used to create simple cards for children with cute boys and girls on. Where best to look for them than Here in the Bestie Shop. This little guy is Sailor Boy there is a little girl too.
I've coloured him in with my Promarker pens. I've used alsorts of papers on this card as I can't throw anything out. The little metal tag I have had since I started crafting back in the early 1990's (I knew it would find a use one day lol).
Thanks for stopping by again today, I hope you have added your card if not still time to do so.
I'm joining in over at Noordesign-uk. August-challenge-anything-goes. with this card.

Nana's Darling!


Just wanted to share a card I made for a friend to give her Granddaughter

This is a first on two levels. The first is the fact that this card has no back and sits on this stand which I made for it. The second is this is the first time I have used an image by All Dressed Up Stamps I've only just found them and I adore them. I love the fact that they are so simple but so usable on every level. The image was a freebie given away a short while ago to help people get started and join in with her monthly challenges.

I used papers from a paper pad I picked up in the store so all the hard work has been done on that front. I used a stencil by Dutch Doobadoo Shape-Art-A5-Square. found here at NoorDesign! UK Shop/Crafteezee I have also used several different dies one of which is the scribble heart by Tim Holtz. I've added lace, glitter, ribbon and a metal charm.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:-

Pitter Patter.

Here I am with another card to share. This time around it is for a friend who is expecting anyday now the arrival of their baby daughter.
I saw a card by Little Meg's Cards on Pinterest and I loved it using this pretty image and I fell in love with the way she had coloured in the dress so I copied it!

The card is a 6x6 bright white base and on to that I've added pink gingham paper which I have stitched around opposite corners. I added these white corners on top to which I dotted liquid pearls in baby pink and pearl colours.
I matted the silver foiled card on to the same pink the image is matted on to. I had to use the heart banner (it is my favorite) and the Pitter Patter from a Sue Wilson die set was added to a flag banner. A few hearts dotted around and we are done.
The image is by Stamping Bella - Uptown Girls and I have coloured her in with my Promarker pens and added glitter when dry.

I'm joining in with a few challenges,

Salty Kisses xxx

Hello There,

It's time again to share with you a card I have made for the new challenge over at Besties International . This month our challenge is as always anything goes but also we are using the theme Nautical. For this you could use anything found on, in or around the sea or seaside. I made this for my uncles birthday (he lives by the seaside).

Here is what I have made,

It's a 5x7 cream card base and on to that I've added a cream paper which I have first stamped a texture background stamp by Kaisercraft found Here then I brushed over it with Cosmic Shimmer Powder in pearl. I then added papers from Kaisercraft and DCWV all mounted on plane cardstock to match the colours used.
The image is _Img396 found here at My Bestie Shop she is cute don't you think? I've coloured her in with my Promarker pens and cut her using a Spellbinder die adding a small mat to her. A little foliage and a few sea type mini buttons give some balance to the card. To finish off a few drops of Perfect Pearls.

Now it's your turn to join in the fun. Remember the new rules we have to make it more fare for non-Dt's to win the most images for the month.

I'm joining in with other challenges too

Heartfelt Wishes

Today I'd like to share with you a little card I made using this sweet image I have had sitting on my desk for months!
The card is a 6x6 bright white card blank and on to that I have added 2 papers from the same paper pad. The first I ran through a embossing folder and the second I cut a little smaller and added on top.
The navy blue corner added interest to which I added a pale blue gem. The faux ribbon is a die my Bestie gave me for my last birthday, I added a gem to that too.

The image was cut out using a stitched die and I inked the edges with soft blue. I added it to a Spellbinder layer.
The sentiment I felt could be either for sympathy or sickness/get well.

Thanks for stopping by today, if you have the time leave a word or two.  I am entering this card in the following Blog Challenges too.

Friends are Flowers

Hi there,

Well its time to share with you all my reminder project for this months challenge over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot.  Remember it is a anything goes challenge but we do have a theme running to and it is Sparkle Glam or Glitter.

I've used a image found here at  mybestiesshop.com  she is called IMG806,Fashionista,Besties and when you buy her you get 2 images, the other is her head & shoulders.

I've made a card again this time, it is a 5x7 bright white card blank and I've used papers to cover it all from the same paper pad. I then set about colouring her in using my Promarker pens.
I added some glitter glue to her bodice and the flowers. I used my stitched die to cut her out and I added her with pads for lift. The sentiment is by Sue Wilson and I matted that on to some lime green to match her top.
I found paper flowers in my stash similar to those on her hat and to those I added pearl brads. A few bling gems and the card is complete.

I am entering this card in to the following challenges

A Sunny Thank You!

Hello and I hope your enjoying this beautiful weather we are having here in the U.K. at the moment?

I'm a lover of all things Verve and I'm so happy because they are back after a long break with a New Release Blog hop. You can find it Here . Yesterday Betty made a lovely card using blue and yellow and I thought it so striking I told her I was going to make a card using those colours. So here it is...

The card is a 5x7 cream card blank and on to that I have added a slightly smaller piece of Bayu paper by Kaisercraft. Then I've taken a piece of cream card and out of that I've cut using one of my new Tim Holtz Mixed Media dies#2. Then I've taken stamps and dies from Be Blessed stamps by Verve . I placed 3 straight on to the cream card and coloured in with my Promarker pens. Then on another piece I stamped and then cut out 3 more.
I added those on foam pads and added a pale blue gem. Around the flat 3 I added dashes with a blue pen. The sentiment is also by Verve from the Simply Amazing set.
