Tee off!

Morning folks, have you all got that Friday feeling! I certainly haven't Friday's at work always seem to drag somehow! Anyway I was asked to make a golfing card and I decided to use the fab sketch over at Sketch N Stash

I found this great image over at Digi Stamp Boutique the other day which was perfect and I teamed it up with some neglected My Minds Eye papers. I coloured the image with ProMarkers and the sentiment is by Craftwork Cards. I do think it looks a little plain but I could not think what else to add without it looking girly lol! I am also entering this one into Digi Stamp Boutiques Monthly Challenge.

Thanks for looking!

Seasons Greetings!

Morning all! Lovely day off today, at least it will be after they have been to fit my bathroom flooring lol! Hope this weather keeps up so I can get some gardening done. Anyway I have made this card for this weeks LIM challenge, sorry I have missed a few ladies!

I have made this one using an Artemio stamp set. I simply stamped the wording in gold then stamped the sprig over the top in Brilliance pearlescent Chocolate then added some gold Glamour dust before it dried. For the sentiment I just inked the top line of the background stamp. Nice and simples but effective me thinks!

Thanks for looking!

Across The Miles!

Hi everyone, hope you are all well! I am pleased to say that I am almost back with you all properly, just one more weekend of painting to go, woohoo! Can't wait to catch up with you all, I have missed sooo much! I think it will take a while to get my mojo back but I have made a few cards for some challenges this week starting with this one.

As you can see I have gone for shades of brown and used Penny Blacks - Fantasy Tree. The papers are very old ones form my stash which I distressed and the stars are a Cuttlebug die. The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using my Stampin Up Word Window punch. I am entering this one into:

Thanks for looking, catch you all soon!

Shoe distress!

Hi everyone, I am afraid this will be my last post for a couple of weeks now as we are away for a few days and then the last of our house renovations are being done, thank goodness! It will be so nice to have the house back to normal and get crafting properly again. Thank you all for bearing with me over the past couple of months. Now onto todays card, over at Sketch N Stash this week the theme is to choose a sketch from their catalogue. I have chosen sketch number 1as follows
I needed a quick birthday card for our nephews girlfriend who just loves shoes and handbags, so I dug out my old favourite Ladybug Crafts stamp and teamed it up with some neglected papers I found in my stash!

I distressed all the edges slightly with my new Tim Holtz distressing tool (need a bit more practice me thinks!). I paper pieced the bag and part of the shoes. I used a couple of Copic pens to colour the image and added some gold Stickles here and there. The sentiment is by Craftwork Cards. 

Thanks for looking and looking forward to catching up with you all when I get back!

Anyone For Tea!

Hi everyone, boy it's windy here today! Well as I said I am trying to make the most of my craft room while it's still empty so I have made this card for Lili Of The Valley Challenge 110. Which is a fab sketch by the very talented Pops

I have used some lovely papers from Cosmo Cricket called Pixie - Licious with one of my favourite LOTV images, coloured with ProMarkers. The sentiment is by Woodware and the flowers are from my stash. I coloured some Card Candy from Craftwork Cards with ProMarkers for the flower centres and I used part of a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the corner.

Well I had better get back to work now as I am on my lunch lol! Thanks for looking and see you all later!

Hi everyone, hope you are all well on this lovely wet Sunday morning! Well it's been a while but I wanted to let you know I am still here! We have had the decorator and carpet fitter in and only having a small house means every time we clear a room out it all has to go in my craft room, so I have not been able to craft lately. I have managed to clear it for the moment though so I am making the most of it before the next shift around. Fingers crossed everything should be finished by the end of this month and I will be back properly. Now then over at Less Is More this week the theme is Metallic and this is what I came up with!

I have used a sheet of Medium Aluminium Art Emboss Metal. It works great in the Cuttlebug as long as you go backwards and forwards over it several times lol! The die is a Nestie called "Fleur De Lys" I think. I went for a black card base for more impact and the sentiment is by Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for looking and thank you all for continuing to follow me in my absence, I notice that a couple of you have given up on me but hope the rest of you will bear with me as I will be back to normal very soon! Looking forward to seeing what you have all been up to!
