Toot Toot, driving in my car!

Hello,

Today I'd like to share a little card I made for a guy who loves his cars and looking after them. Before he puts this little number in the garage it gets a wipe down.

So when I saw this image of sports-car-alf over at digistampboutique.co.uk  I knew this would be perfect as he has a car just like it which comes out at the first sight of the sun.


I made a simple 5x7 tent fold card from bright white card stock and matted up deep red and black and added a little white pen around the edges.
The image was coloured in using my Promarker pens. I added a red dot edge around him and matted him on to black and red again. I added a little bakers twine to one side and this was then added to the card using foam pads.
The Happy Birthday is a verve stamp and the cool dude is from another digi set from the boutique.

Thanks for stopping by today, please leave a word so I know who's called by.

Happy 4th July.

Hello there,

Where is this time going? Well here we are 15th June and it's time to share with you all our reminder cards for the challenge running over at bestieschallenge. we have a theme of Summer but we are also a anything goes challenge.
Here is my card today.



Summer time for me is seaside, outdoor games and birthdays! So I decided to make a card using this cutie called Baseball Bestie_img309  of course she could be playing "rounders" (for all us Brits lol).  But I always like to send a card to my Auntie who lives over in Washington State celebrating 4th July.

I made a 5x7 card blank and added 2 pieces of a double sided paper (top & bottom) to cover the join I added a navy flag banner and a white star banner both by Verve.com   
I coloured the image using my Promarker & Copic pens and cut her out using the die by Polkadoodles.co.uk fancy-rectangles-tabs-die-set   I just love this die!
I printed the sentiment on my P.C. and cut a flag banner for it. Then a few stars were cut in red, white & blue and dotted about.
There's still time to join in and you can win some cool images for more summer fun projects.

I’m joining with some other challenges

New Job Winnie!

Hello,

I am really pleased to share my 3rd project with you for my Guest Designer spot over  at digichoosday.blogspot.com
This is a ATG challenge but the designers were asked to make a different shaped card so I decided to use one of my Dutch doobadoo card shapes (which I love btw) to allow me to cut out of dusty blue card this great shape.


I chose to use this image New Job winnie-from celebrations-2 along with papers from winnie-sugar-sprinkles-paper-heaven-4-bundle  and the sentiment is from the fab winnie-celebrations-2-sentiments . I also used some lace and ribbon from my stash. I used several dies on this card some Spellbinder and one from a LDRScreative set I have.
I made a couple of fancy pins to pop behind the paper ribbon by adding extra beads to a couple of hat pins.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you'll join in with the challenge as there is a prize to be won.

I’m joining in a few other challenges

Splashing Around!

Hello There,

Well it's time to start off a new challenge over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends. and as always we are a "anything goes" challenge.
We have an exclusive sponsor this time around who are offering the winner 2 packs from their store and they are AMBillustrations

Here is what I made using mermaid-digital-stamp-under-the-sea it comes with a plethora of add on images allowing you to make a wonderful scene.

I printed out and coloured in using my Promarker pens the mermaid and a couple of seahorses. I used a selection of papers from Kaisercraft and stickers I bought whilst in Florida a few years back. The sentiment stamp is by Sue Wilson from Rubbernecker Stamps.
I lifted the image and both sentiments on foam pads and added a few blue sequins to finish off.

I hope you can come on over and join in the fun. Leave a few words below if you like what you've seen.

So berry sweet!

Hello,

Well today is the start of our new challenge over at my-besties-international-challenge.  And we have
theme to play with for those like one or we are as always a anything goes challenge. The theme is Summer.

                        

Summer to me always includes copious amounts of fresh English strawberries and lashings of thick cream (never mind the waistline lol). So when I saw this little cutie in the store I knew I had to use her. She is img666 found in the Etsy store  I coloured her using my Promarker pens and Copics.

The card is a 6x6 bright white with mats of red and the beautiful strawberry paper by Maja Designs called Summertime-Taste-the-strawberries. Before I put this down I first stitched with red thread to the top and bottom and added green pearl beads to the bottom. I cut 4 small mats from Spellbinder dies to put under her one being the other side of the strawberry paper. I cut her "out" of the die for a change.
I printed the sentiment and matted that to match. I fussy cut a few strawberries and dotted them about and we are finished.
I do hope you can join in with us as there are some fun images to be won. Thanks for stopping in today and I hope you can leave a word or two.
I'd like to join in with these challenges too

Miss Kelly Von Sweets Gift Bag

Hello,

Here I am sharing my second project for digichoosday.blogspot. as a very happy Guest Designer. As always it is a Anything Goes challenge but we DT members have been asked to add something that was not originally made for card making.

So I have used one side of a pink zipper to make a rose as well as making some of my own enamelled dots from those peg things children use to make drinks coasters etc. I'm sorry I can't recall what their actual name is!!



The paper bag is 4x6 and is in a bleached blue decking pattern. I printed off  4 of the papers from polkadoodles.co.uk/winnie-sugar-sprinkles-paper-heaven-4-bundle-printable-crafting-digital-stamp-craft-scrapbooking-download/ and matted up the bag, I cut the lace boarder and the mat for the image which is the pretty polkadoodles.co.uk/winnie-sugar-sprinkles-springtime-miss-kelly-von-sweets-printable-digital-stamp-download/  which I coloured in with my Promarker pens.
I added a dusty pink doily from my stash and I cut the awesome and some leaves from some plain yellow. I have cut from the papers two tassel's which I have tucked under the rose. The sentiment is from polkadoodles.co.uk/winnie-celebrations-2-sentiments-digi-kit-download/  I used polkadoodles.co.uk/fancy-rectangles-tabs-die-set  to cut it out and mat on to the green.
To finish off added the dots and a tiny yellow peg with a flower on it.

I do hope you can come over and play along with us all. Stop by and see what the other designer have made too.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can leave a word or two,

Digichoosday with Polkadoodles

Hello,

Well I am so happy to post today as I am a Guest Designer over at Digichoosday.blogspot.
I couldn't be happier as I just love the products that Nikky produces. I seem to have been watching her for quite sometime now but never confident enough to try out for a chance to be one of her designers but when I saw a shout out a while ago I thought I'd try.

So here is my first project for the challenge. We have a theme to use but the challenge itself is one of anything goes with some "fab" prizes to be won.



I decided to make a tag using a 6inch chipboard shape I have been keeping in my stash for quite some time now! I first gave it a coat of cream paint by Kaisercraft.
As the theme for us is one of "Shabby Chic" I decided to use this floral paper to cover the front but not before I distressed the edges and inked using Tattered Rose Then I took a sage green doily and placed it down slightly hanging over the edge and then added some deep striped ribbon I've had for a while too. This I also hung over the edges.
Today I have chosen to use one of Nikky's pre-coloured images polkadoodles.co.uk/glass-half-full-january-coloured-craft-digi-download  I love to have these in my stash as you don't always want or have the time to colour. I just loved the colours in this too. I cut her out using Polkadoodles-fancy-rectangles-tabs-die-set and inked the edges again with Tattered Rose then I matted her up on the dot paper. I placed her down also hanging over one side.
As she has a glass with a straw I thought I'd add one too along with a collection of flowers and leaves. The sentiment is from polkadoodles.co.uk/winnie-celebrations-2-sentiments-digi-kit-download  
I added a cute little button with the Eiffel Tower on it along with some gems and two types of ribbon to the top to finish off.
I do hope you can stop by and join in the fun.

Lolly Pop Lolly Pop!

Hello again!

Well it's time to share a new challenge over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends. this will run for two weeks and we have a wonderful exclusive sponsor  Fabrikafantasy.com  with us giving away to the winner 3 images of their choice.

Today I'd like to share with you something new to me.


A Lolly Pop card! I have never made one of these and have been keen to do so for months. So when I found the sticks in a cake store I knew it was time to give it a go.
I wanted to do something different and so I chose this cute little-witch-digital-stamp. which along with the image you get this adorable coloured in version too. This is ideal as not everyone likes to colour and this gives the best of both worlds. Isn't she cute?
I printed her out at 80% colour to go with my Graphic45 paper choice. I cut her out with a Spellbinder die and matted her on to black. Then I cut out 3x12 inch strips of the paper at 11/2 inch deep and punched out a scalloped dot boarder and in every dip I scored and after doing all I folded it up like a fan.
The hardest part came next adding it to the image!! Lets just say it will be a while before I make another Lol! I cut out and matted on to purple sparkle paper the Bewitched and Charmed words. I added the stick and glued in place and then covered the back with the same Graphic45 paper covering all the workings.
After adding a tiny bat and some purple stars we are done.
I do hope you will come over and join in the fun with us. As always we are a "anything goes" challenge.

True Love.

Hello,

Today I'd like to share with you all a special card I made for an order by my neighbour. 
She asked for a "wow" card to help the recipients celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary, which is diamond. She did mention that their favorite film is High Society and the song they danced to at their wedding all those years ago was True Love by Bing Crosby & Grace Kelly. They still ask for it at every event. For those that don't know he sings it to her on a yacht and she is wearing pink and he in sailor blue.

So here is what I made for her..


I cut the base card using my Cricut using the cartridge Paper Lace. Then I cut the blue paper 1/4 inch less. The pink is 3/4 less than the base card.
I've added the heart banner and backed it with a bit of blue and the verse is from the song and I mounted that on to a blue cardstock. I added the deep cream lace and on to that I added one of my favorite banners and wrapped around that a sparkly sheer ribbon but not before it was threaded through a diamante ribbon slider.
The flowers are added on top of the heart leaf spray which is cut out of pale green. I added a hat pin but added a few beads first, the cotton reel is an idea I lifted from Tracy Payne the owner of Crafteezee-shop and a wonderful cardmaker to boot. I fussy cut out a few boats and added them around the card along with some diamante gems. The heartfelt wishes I added on a double mat to the top to add some height. The 60 was also cut by the Cricut too. I made two sizes of tassel using both the blue and pink papers.

Thank You for stopping by today, I hope you liked what you saw? If so please leave a comment.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Hello There,

Here we go again with yet another new month and a new challenge over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot . We are a anything goes challenge but we do have a theme if you like to follow one.  For the month of May its Girls just wanna have fun! just like the song.


This fun birthday card I made for my Brother-in-Law. He lives in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and is a keen golfer. "hello pet" is a typical greeting around those parts so it had to be added. The other "cheeky" comment at the bottom goes along with his fun personality.
I hope you can come over and play along as there are some great Fluffy images to win.

I'm also joining in with these challenges too...

The Potting Shed!

Hello,

Today I'd like to share with you a card I made my Husband for his Birthday last week. I was lucky to win some digi images from this wonderful company digistampboutique.co.uk they have a huge selection to choose from, infact I got quite spoilt for choice. As it's hard to make a card for a guy I was so chuffed to find a HUGE selection of images covering their hobbies in different styles of chaps Lol.

Here is mine using Dads-shed-Alf


Isn't he wonderful leaning on the door!  My hubby is thinking of purchasing a shed to go hide in when he wants some space Lol.
The card is my normal 6x6 bright white and on to that I have added this paper which I have been hiding in my stash for about 15 years! cause I didn't know what to do with it. It has all male terms on it in many fonts and in different directions.
I coloured the image in with my Promarkers and Copics for the face. I mounted the coloured in image on to some pear coloured card and used postage stamp scissors around the edge (hubby is a postman). I grabbed some kraft card and cut strips and inked the edges and made a similar design to the shed make-up and placed that in the center of the card adding the bling blue banner mid way.
I cut out the "perfect" and cogs and dotted those around. The Happy Birthday has two screw brads on each end and the "boys will be boys" has been added using foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by today, leave a word or two as its nice to see who came.

JingleBelle a Christmas Bag

Hi,

Today I'd like to share with you a gift bag I made to join in with the girls over at Jinglebellesrock.

This time around we are using a photo for inspiration .   and here is what I have made to join in.



 I took the orange, whites, rustic wood oh and the fluffy look of the stockings in mind when I came up with this design.
The bag I picked up at a craft store (pack of 4) and the large sentiment is from a Kaisercraft Christmas paper from last year, I matted that on to some White cardstock . Then I took some burnt orange mulberry paper from my stash (boy how old was this ??) and added that to the sentiment and then feathered the edge adding it to the bag with silicone glue for lift.
The two trees were gifted by Sandy and I thought they pulled in the tree from the photo for good measure. Then the Merry Christmas and don't open are from a set of stamps that I've had for years with no clue who they are by. I also added for good measure a few stars in bright white and orange.
So now I'll tuck this away till year end as I know who I'll be giving it to already!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hair Pretties!

Hello,

It's time to share my reminder project with you all for our current challenge over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot. we are a anything goes challenge so you can share anything you are currently working on as we all love to see.

This 6x6 card uses more paper I was gifted, it has roses on it and as it was a A4 sheet I fussy cut the spare ones and popped them up over the bottom ones. I added some pink sheer ribbon and olive green twine to the side and added my image which is mounted on a buttery yellow card.
The image I have used is one you could win if you join in and she is Fancy Pants sitting in Flowers I love this range as the little face reminds me of my niece. I have coloured her in using my alcohol pens and added dots of glitter glue to the flowers.

I hope you can come and join in, there are some really good images to win.

Spring is in the Air!!!

Hello Everyone,

Well it's April 1st and that means it is time to kick start a new challenge over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot. and this time we have a theme for those who like to use one and it is Spring! (we here in the U.K. can't wait for this to happen as it seems to have been a long old winter!) you don't have to use it as we are a anything goes challenge.

This time I made a shaped card and covered with this cute double sided Easter paper. As this card is for my mum it had to have a heart on it so I used a similar coloured card to that of the trim on her dress. I used my scrabble stamp and die set to spell out SPRING.
The image is coloured in using Promarker pens except for her skin which is Copics. I have also added a little cluster of flowers and leaves.



I sure hope you can come on over and share your recent makes with us as you could win a prize. Thanks for stopping by today.
I'd like to play along with these other challenges too

Magic of the season.

Hello,

Today I'd like to share with you another card I have made for Christmas.

Again I am following themes running over at Jinglebellesrock.blogspot.  This one is using Christmas Long Ago and Music.
The Bell shape is a Dutch Doobadoo which I cut out in cream and covered with a Kaisercraft paper (which has sheet music printed on it but it may be covered up!). Then I added lace and 2 sheer ribbon bows 1 in green the other in sparkle white. The image & sentiment are also from Kaisercraft & I matted those on to a scrap of Graphic45 paper. I added 2 poinsettia flowers and 2 berries along with a Joy metal label which I've had for years.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Jingle 5 Ways!

Hello There!

Today I'd like to share with you all a Christmas Card, yes I've made one before July (which is a first in itself). I am determined this year to try to make quite a few before November!

So here it is.
I decided to make a shaped card today (something a little different to stand amongst the rest) and as I follow the girls over at Jinglebellesrock.blogspot and they are already 7 challenges in to the new year I thought it was time to "shake a leg" and join in. So this card I think includes 5 of the challenges including the on-going one.
1. New- the star die I have used.
2. 3 of something
3. Text- the background paper has been run through a embossing folder with various fonts reading Happy/Merry Christmas
4. Music
5. Old fashioned/days gone by feel.

I hope you like this as much as I did making it.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello

Hello!

Well I was hoping to say "spring is here" but alas all it's done today is rain! It is so disappointing.

So not to dwell on matters I have another Easter card to share with you all. This one uses yet again a pre-coloured image which comes on a sheet of 6. I picked it up in store a few weeks back. I like having them in as they allow you to spend time on the card making instead of the colouring which is good for us all.


This card uses several layers of a Dutch Doobadoo which I purchased here at Crafteezee.co.uk  The papers were bought there too and they are from the 6x6 paper pad called Mintay-Birdsong . I chose a few papers from my stash which matched the image and cut out a Scalloped Boarder Die By Verve, some leaves and a couple of flowers. The image is mounted on golden yellow card using a scalloped Spellbinder die.
To finish off I used a new die I picked up by Lawn Fawn. A few pale blue pearls and the hearts out of the banner dotted about and we are finished.

Thanks for stopping by today.

I will be entering this in the following challenges

Speedy Recovery!

Hi,

I thought I'd share this card I made for a friend who has been poorly.


It uses zesty lime green cardstock with some "old gold "spot paper by Kaisercraft. The sentiment is by Verve and I've added flowers from my stash along with leaves cut from green card and the addition of a few gems and dots of perfect pearls.
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Crafting!

Sweet Treat Bunny


Hello,
Well it's time to share my second post of the day for the current challenge over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot . This time I have made a topper for a Easter "sweet treat" using the cute Bestie Bunny in a Egg. Scan0023



It's quite simply but I needed a couple of gifts for little ones and these tiny eggs were perfect to fit in my holder tubes but the tops looked plain. So I made a tent fold topper out of purple cardstock and cut a hole for the tube to fit in (sorry it's a bit squiffy on top there!)
Then after colouring in the image with my Promarkers I matted her on to gold glitter card using my deckle edge scissors I trimmed it up and added her to the front.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you get to join in with us.

Sue,

Bunny Ears

Hello,

Today is reminder time over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot.  and because it's nearly Easter I've chosen a themed image for today's card. I will be posting again a bit later so I hope you can come back.


The image I have used for this easel card is img910_2 it is this cute little girl with long bunny ears caring her own bunny. I have coloured her in using my Promarker pens but not her face! that was coloured in using my new Copic pens sent to me by my own Bestie Sandy. So hopefully now my skin/face will be more realistic.

The card is a 5x7 in size. I've curved the front edge using the size up from the stitched cut carrot paper. The green is the opposite side to the carrot paper and the cross hatch paper is a Easter paper too. I added 3 buttons to tie in the image. The flowers are paper on the card front and fabric on the base. I also added a couple of straws, leaves and a heart "hatpin" (on the base behind the small flower) along with a few tiny pearls.
Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you a little later for my next make.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges Noordesign-uk.blogspot.co.uk-march-challenge-spring.

Well "chick" Happy Easter!

Hello,

Today I'd like to share with you a card I have made for Easter,


This gorgeous little image I picked up last month in store, it is a ready coloured- in image (saves time when its short!) which I re-cut using my stitched die to fit the lovely Joycraft die.
I made the card shape using my Dutch-Doobadoo-Shape Art Stencil which I trimmed off the bottom. To that I added some pink paper after embossing it. Then using both sides of a double sided Easter paper I cut out Wavy Hearts by Verve, balloons, a banner & sprightly Sprigs along with a few stars and a tag from my Mintay-Birdsong-6x6-Paper-Pad .
To finish I added a few fabric flowers 2 small roses and one from Rose-Ribbon-with-Pearl. There was a little space at the bottom so I added my "word" of the moment chick using my new favorite Scrabble-Stamp-Die-Set.
I'd like to share in other challenges,

Happy Easter!

Good Morning!

I'm happy to say it's time to start a new challenge over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends.blogspot.  As always we are a 'anything goes' challenge.

This time we have a exclusive sponsored by the lovely team at fredshesaid and I have chosen to use this lovely Tea Cup Pansie Digi  which I have coloured in using my alcohol pens and my newest gift from my BFF some pencils too.


I have made a 6x6 card blank out of some designer cardstock in lavender with a darker vine running over it. Then using the colours in the flowers I cut out 4 corners and a scalloped circle in dark orange and a bright white doily.
I added some gems and a Happy Easter text and we are good to post.

Big Hat Besties

Hello,
Well it's time to start the month with a new challenge over at bestieschallenge.blogspot. As always we are "anything goes" but we do also have a theme to play along to too and this month it's a good one " girls with big hats or hair pretties" as Bestie fans we will all have one if not more that fill that brief.

Here is what I have come up with today,


I have made this 5x7 birthday card using this gorgeous Fancy Pants Little Pixie with new boots. I have coloured her in using my alcohol pens and then cut her out using a Spellbinder Die.
 I've used a sheet of paper I was given which has the lace & butterfly printed on it. Then matching up a couple of other papers from my stash after stitching around the edges I put them down at angles and placed her on top.
I have added a wooden butterfly (once I coloured it )to one corner and a sheer pale green ribbon with metal button to the other. The happy birthday sentiment is from a stamp.

Thanks for stopping by today, please join in with the fun as you could win some super digis.

Blooming Coffee Time!

Hello,

Today I'd like to share with you a card I have made for the reminder post over at Besties International Challenge We are still playing with the theme "Love is in the Air" but we are also a Anything Goes challenge. We have some lovely Besties  images for you to win along with the option to be our Guest Designer.

This is the card I have made, it is a 6x6 bright white card blank with papers matted and layered on to it from  the Simple Stories SN@P! Colour Vibe paper pad.



 The image is Fluffy Bestie Doll,scan0010 I have coloured her in using my Promarkers after watching a few YouTube videos.
I've used a total of 11 dies on this card. The image has been fussy cut out and using foam pads added to a new die from Crafteezee.co.uk    which is -Little-Darlings-Fancy-Rectangle-Layers-Die.  I have tucked the frame under the swooping edge cut. The Happy Birthday stamp is from Verve stamps and I have used the same LD fancy rectangle die to cut & layer it.
I used my stitched circle die to cut out the grey wood grain paper and another new die used is the Marianne-Design-Tassel-Fringe-Die. which I cut 2 tassel's out and tucked under the daisy and rose combo. The butterfly charm is one from my stash (trying so hard to use up things from my stash right now!!). The flowers are also found over at www.crafteezee.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope to be popping over to your blog to see what you have made.

I will be sharing in the following challenges...Noordesign-uk.blogspot-Feb Challenge

Love You Mum.

Hi,

Today I'd like to share with you my card for the new challenge over at Lil patch of crafty friends blog . As always we are "anything goes" so you can share whatever crafty item you have made.

This time we have a exclusive sponsor and it is Polkadoodles.co.uk   I have chosen to use this adorable image called winnie-sugar-sprinkles-springtime-love-you-mum and I have coloured her in using my Promarker Pens.




Today I have made a 6x6 card blank and I have used my newest papers called Birdsong by a new supplier over at crafteezee.UK  and they are called Mintay . There are 6 double sided papers in the pad and 4 pages of each. There are also  images you can use on the inside back and front covers.
I have used a new die to cut out Winnie also available at Crafteezee Little-Darlings-Fancy-Rectangle-Layers-Die. The tag, butterfly's, extra flowers and tassel's have all been cut from the papers. The only thing not is the Fantasy-Bunting-with-Hearts-Die. which I cut in a deep red to match her hair. Another new stamp and die set I have used is the Scrabble-Stamp-Die-Set by Joy! Crafts
To finish off the card today I dotted around some stickles glitter glue and the hearts from inside the bunting die.

Thanks for stopping by today, come on over and join in the challenge.

Love is in the Air!

Hello There!

Today being the 1st February it's time to share a new card for the challenge over at Besties International  As always it is a "anything goes" one but we do always have a theme and this month of February it is of course LOVE in fact it is "love is in the air" so it could be anniversary, wedding etc!

So here is my make for today,


This is a square card in bright white. Then using 4 different papers from a paper pad I won last year from Ribbongirl.co.uk by Echo Park called Summer Bliss I set about matting and layering the card up. I have used this pretty little image called  Bows and Kisses 
and coloured her up using my Promarker Pens, then I cut her out using a Spellbinder Die. I also used the SB filigree heart die too.
To finish the card off I added a tag using a Verve Stamp and flowers from Crafteezee.  I also added sequins, little wooden hearts and a couple of brads from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by today.

I'm sharing today also over at Noordesign-uk.blogspot. February-challenge

Baby It's Cold Out There!

Here is the card I made for our reminder post on the challenge over at Besties International challenge 
We are as always  anything goes but we also have a theme should you wish to join in with that and this month it is Baby It's Cold. If your a winner (and we have some great images to choose from) you could also be our Guest Designer soon.
For this card I used img 180 and I coloured her in using Promarker pens.


Here is a view of the side, showing the green flag boarder cut to match the colour of her Ski Jacket.


I cut the front a little shorter to show the green flag boarder. I also wanted to use my new die from Crafters Companion (I have to say this took several attempts but very happy when it finally worked). To hide the join of the blue paper I added satin ribbon. I used a Spellbinder die as the main mat then cut a pale blue one and then added her on to that fussy cutting around her ski's and bobble.
I used a couple of Tim Holtz splat dies in the same card stock as the card including a few break away drops. a couple more white snow flakes and a few baby blue pearls and we are finished.
I do hope you can join in with us, see what the rest of the design team have made also. As always they are great.

I will be joining in with some other challenges too....

A Little Bird Told Me!




Hello There.

Well today being Sunday it's time to share with you all my card for the new challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends .
Peppercus Etsy Shop


 We have a great sponsor this time around peppercus-design.de  and they are giving away 3 digi images to the winner.

I chose this cute little Owl with balloon it comes black and white ready for you to colour as well as pre-coloured too. As I was making this card close to Christmas I chose to use the beautiful coloured image for speed.


I made the card blank out of pale turquoise bling cardstock and picked out a selection of papers matching the colours used on the image. The sentiments are from two different companies one is Kaisercraft and the other I can't remember infact it could have been in a magazine! A couple of pearls and we were finished. Pre-coloured images are a bonus, if your stuck for time they can give you a head start.

Thanks for stopping by today, pop over and check out the other DT makes and then join us.

For the Mr & Mrs...

Hello,

Today I'd like to share with you all a card I made for a friend of my husband who was getting married. I've used this lovely precoloured image I picked up at the store a while back. I cut it out using my stitched die and then gathered all my other ingredients which had a soft green to them as well as white.

I decided to cut away some of the front to make the image float. I covered 5inch square in wedding paper from my stash and matted that on to some long forgotten sage green vellum. I added a soft green doily tucking under some deep white lace. I added the image on to that and then added a daisy flower from crafteezee.UK I made a couple from paper beside it and cut out a few leaves in vellum.


The sentiment is by Verve from their Love Everlasting set which is one of my favorites. I placed a couple more open leaves under it. I dotted a few sequins and pearls about the card and we were done. I should add this card is a 7x7 bright white and I stamped some random hearts using the same stamp set as above and tied a piece of shere soft green ribbon around it.

And here is a side view


 Thanks for stopping by today, I'd love to hear what you think.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges...

Happy New Year!

Hello,

Firstly I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Lets hope 2018 is a great one for us all. Have you made any resolutions? I have and just the one, to be more proactive on my blog!

Today being the 1st of the month means it's the start of a new challenge over at Besties International . As always a "anything goes" one and as always we have a theme too. This month it is Baby it's Cold Outside. We have some great images to be won, so I do hope you will come on over and join in.

Here is the card I made. I know it's not a wintery theme but I wanted to make a New Years card first so my "chilly" card will be aired on the 15th which is our reminder date.


For this card I have chosen to use  "peace, love and Joy" image found here mybestiesshop.com I knew I wanted a pink and black theme to my card so I set to finding just the right papers and then I coloured her in using my trusty Promarker pens.
I do hope you can come and join in with us this time around.

I'm entering a few challenges with this card..
