Birthday Kitten

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:
Passion for promarkers: Fave colour combo
Papertake: Bow/Ribbon
Totally Gorjuss: Flowers

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.

Thanks :)

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!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday I turned the sketch around

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.

Wedding card

My Friend asked me to make a wedding card for her to give to some very good friends of hers, as all the ones in the shop were tacky!
Quite a compliment I thought! lol
I went for white on white with a few pearls as I always think it looks gorgeous,
here it is:

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.
