Not sure about this one?!

Hello peeps, happy hump day!
Well, I'm not sure about this card, I just think it looks a little plain.
I've used the fab Judy from kraftin kimmie, who has been coloured with PMs.
The paper is tickled pink by MME, I didn't have any grey card so I coloured some with my PMs. The flowers were punched from scraps of paper using a woodware punch.
The card is done using a sketch from Sketch saturday

Something borrowed....

Evening peeps, I've had a bad day, and had to medicate with a cider today, so hopefully my spelling won't be too atrocious!
Here is my card for the challenge over at CCT which is something borrowed.
My borrowed element is the stamp which I borrowed from my crafting chum Kelly.

The papers are lovely and bright and are from 1st edition "hide-away".
A few flowers and gems and a ribbon from my stash to finish off.

A gift for a friend.

This started out life as a plain pine frame from dunelm mill, which I painted blue. I've used quite a few different stamp sets on here, all the blue stamping was done with distress inks straight on to the frame, and the black was done on to tissue paper and then stuck down using a mixture of pva and water. As long as you don't look too closely you can't really see the tissue paper.
It's not her birthday for a few weeks, so you I will have to wait and see if she like it!

1st Christmas card of the year.....

I went for a play day at incy's house the other day, and I made couple of Christmas cards, I know, it's only just Easter and I'm making Christmas cards, but it will soon be upon us!
This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest, I'm not sure what the stamp is, as I borrowed it from our host!

An exceedingly pink card!

I think this could be the pinkest card I have ever made!
Maybe all the chocolate has given me a sugar rush and affected my brain?
I have used the very cute doodle garden springtime stamp, by MFT. I have coloured her in with PMs, the papers are some doodlebug ones I dug out, I'm trying to work my way through the stash of 12x12s that I have, but I'm not really making a dent!
The leaf is cut using a woodware punch, and the swirl is a sizzex die.
Flowers and gems from stash, and a little bit of ribbon for good measure.

I would like to enter this in to the passion for promarker challenge, which was a bingo style challenge, and I went for ribbon, gems, punches. (Sorry the link is not clickable!)

Fly away bunny...

I know, I know, you are all surprised that this isn't a PB image aren't you?!
I have used the super cute,and a little bit unloved bunny from the greeting farm. He is only holding on to 1 balloon on the stamp, but I layered some up, and then used the twine to attach him. Don't look too close cuz I stuck him on wrong and he isn't actually holding on to anything! Oops.
I have used 'fly away home' papers from 1st edition, an AmyR greeting, which I think is a bit big but never mind. A few gems to finish off.

I would like to enter this in to the sketch saturday challenge for this week.

Any of you ipad experts know how I can make the link a clickable one?

Penny black spring

Here is my card for the PBSC challenge this month which has the theme spring.
I have used the very cute Betty bluebell, who has been coloured with PMs. I dug out some very old doodlebug papers, which made me feel all full of the joys of spring, and tried a different kind of fold for this card. Over all I'm quite pleased with how this has turned out!

I hope this posts ok, as I'm doing it from my new iPad which I only got today! :)

Gorjuss cuddles

Howdy Peeps.
I made this card a few days ago, and it was promptly claimed by Sandra for her birthday card in May!

It doesnt look it from the pic, but it is square I promise!
I have used a Gorjuss girl, cant remember which one, and cant be bothered to go upstairs and find out.
I have coloured her with PMs, the papers used are 1st edition blank canvas, Love the soft colours in this pack. A little bit of ribbon, started off life white, but I coloured it with my PMs, and a few pearls to finish it off.
I would like to enter this in to just 1 challenge, Passion for Promarkers, Give us a cuddle

2 cards in 1 day! Im doing well!

I have used "Frolic" by Penny black, who is coloured in with PM's, the papers are from a really old pack of DCWV that I am slowly getting to the end of, all the purples are gone now! The ribbon was white, but I coloured it in to match.
I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:

January Blues....

I know its nearly the end of January, but I have just squeezed in this card for the PBSC, which was of course January Blues.

I have used this cute little Goose (or is he a duck?) who was feeling a bit neglected as he hadnt been out of the box for a little while!
He is coloured with PM's and the paper is 1st edition "Blank Canvas". A few flowers and gems from my stash to finish him off.
I have also followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday.

I made few thank you cards to give to my buddies after Christmas. I had a root around in my box of papers and found a few that I hadnt used for about 6 years! All of the papers are basic grey. I used my new star dies aswell. Im really pleased with how they turned out as its not my usual style!

Katsuma (i think)

So I have a little friend called Orla who was 6 recently, who is obsessed with Moshi Monsters, so I wanted to make her a special card.
I printed off a colouring page of this little dude, and coloured him in, and then used bits of card, buttons etc to make a bit of a background for him to go on:

Hope you like him, I know Orla did.

Quite a compliment I thought! lol

Chritmas presents

I thought I would share a pic of what I made my crafty buddies for Christmas:
They each got a birdie garland, in different colours (I made 2 more).
I quite enjoyed making these, and might do one for myself aswell.
Have to think what I can make for them this year! It will be soon be upon us!

my 1st ever scrapbook page

Well, after not posting for ages, I do 2 days in a row.
When Beth at Stamp n Craft challenged us to do a scrapbook page, I knew it had to be about my gorgeous boy Noddy who sadly died in October :(
Im really pleased with how it turned out:

The letters are super glittery, they were horrible and stripey before, but I painted some PVA on them, dipped them in gliter and then covered in glossy accents, locking the glitter in so it wont fall off everywhere everytime you touch the page:

Its been a while!

Hello Peeps,
Its been a while since I updated my blog, must try harder this year!

Here is a set of cards I made for my friend for Xmas.
I used my distress inks to make a background, and then stamped my penny black "aspire" stamp in a couple of different inks, and then a little butterfly fluttering away.
I was so pleased with how these turned out, I made another 6 for my other friend!
Thanks for looking.
