Jingle Belles Rock (Albeit I'm a bit late!)

Hello There,

I'd like to share today 3 cards I made to join in with the jinglebellesrock.blogspot. challenge a couple of weeks back but unfortunately I was too late! The challenge was to include a animal.

All were made using a cream card base, the top 2 are 5x7 and the last is a cute 5x5. I have used a sheet of Graphic45 Christmas paper/images. Brown card for the first mat and green for the next which has been run through an embossing folder. The top 2 have their images matted on to brown which was gutted from the first (I can't waste card!) layer. I added the image on a angle and finished with a holiday greeting and glitter glue. The last has some spare Graphic45 card as the central mat and the image is matted on to another scrap of green. To this card I added some holly leaves and berries and a little brown banner.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Today I'm sharing over at:

Show Us Your Fall Colours

It's reminder time over at Bestie International and we are still looking out for your Autumn Colours if your going along with our theme, if not just join in with anything goes.

Here is what I made this time around

It is a little 5x6 card to say Thank You. These I find always useful to have in a draw to give someone for a act of kindness they show you along the way.
I used some dot paper first and to that I added a panel from a Kaisercraft paper which had the swallows in it. I also used my banner die from Verve and another which is this lovely Thank You sentiment. I added a few dots of pumpkin liquid pearls too.
The image is Gill Day Dreaming and I coloured her in using Promarker pens and then fussy cut her out and lifted her on foam pads sitting on the banner.

Thanks for stopping by, leave a word or two as it's nice to read you.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Someone Special

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my best friend Sandy's birthday. As she is a crafter too its always hard to come up with something new for her. I decided not to colour in a image this time (partly because she's 10x better at it than me) but to use another Dutch Doobadoo shape art called Fantasy A5. which I purchased at the wonderful Crafteezee online store

I cut the shape out in light purple and matted on to it BoBunny paper. I cut out a couple lace boarders along with a selection of leaves, a butterfly and the main owl panel on the front which I stamped my sentiment on to from the Verve stamp set called Simply Amazing . Then I took a selection of flowers picking up the colours from the papers and arranged them down the left hand side. A couple of sequins and were done.
Oh no I almost forgot, I added a little bronze charm which I filled with purple glitter glue to pull it all together. The Antique-Bronze-Filagree-Oval-Frame  is also from

Here is a slight side-on view

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Birthday my super friend. x

A Christmas Jar


Welcome to another post showcasing our challenge #69  over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends.blogspot.   As always we are a Anything Goes challenge which just so happens to have some wonderful sponcors and this time we have 2  Peppercus-design.  giving away 3 images and the wonderful  giving away 4 images

I have chosen to use the Christmas-jar which I have coloured in using my Promarker pens.

I made a 5x7 tent fold card and used papers to match some of the colours I had used. There had to be red so that became the main mat along with the ric rac ribbon. As the image had 2 lovely stars in it I added some more which I die cut out. The two sentiment stamps are odd ones which I can't remember who made them.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you can come on by and add your own creation for a chance to win. Check out what the rest of the team have made.

Autumn is calling!

Hello there!

Well today being the 1st November (now where did that come from??) it's time to start a new challenge over at Besties International . We are a "anything goes" challenge site but we also have a theme running for those of you who would like to join in. This month it is Fall Colours. You can share any project, using any image with the chance to win a image or two from my besties shop. 

Here is what I have made using this cute little Winkie eyed Bestie img695 .

This one goes the extra mile for me cause she's a coffee girl too.
The card is 5x7 and the papers used are from Kaisercraft bought at . The text stamps and coffee cup dies are all from my favorite Verve using Better with You .
