Ahhhh.... lovely snow! Don't think I've ever known it to snow before Easter before?! 

A quick post from me today as it's nearly 12, I need to tidy my desk and I will be up early for the F1 & craft show tomo... Exciting!! 

So here's the card to play along with My Time To Craft challenge of "Gothic"& Charisma Cardz of "Die Cuts"

Full Card

The image is by Tiddly Inks and the paper is glittered. It's out of the new "Noir et Chic" paper pack.
Both the hearts & swirls are die cuts.

 Off for some shut eye... zzzzzz


Baby's 1st Birthday

Hello! What a busy week! Actually managed to get some stuff done today. 

Had an order for two 1st Birthday cards. Well, I struggled big time trying to find some images! Then I came across a couple of images by C.C Designs over at All That Scraps. Perfect! Also perfect was that the Anyone for Anya? challenge this week is a sketch. 

So, here is my card....

Full Card

 The image itself is called "Lolli Beatrice"
She has been coloured with promarkers and layered up.

Off to tidy up


If I was a digi image....

... this is what I'd look like! ha ha... Claret glasses, short brown hair with red & blonde highlights/lowlights, not sure I'm that skinny mind and the colours of the Bhoys in Green! Oh, I'd have to swap the wine glass for a pint glass too ;) 

Full Card
I didn't actually think the green & burgandy woiuld go but it does... I think....
Absolutely love these shaped cards purely because they are not square! Something a bit different. They are known as "snowflake" cards.

Close up
 I'm entering this card into 2 challenges:

1.Simon Says Stamp - A Bit O'Green 
2. I ♥ ProMarkers - Anything But Square

These are fairies are calling to be made... 

Just because....

... you're my Mom! 

Well, can say I'm pretty much chuffed with this. Took long enough to do with cutting all the laters out! 

The image itself is actually 3 different digi images from Tiddly Inks made into 1. It's for 
Mother's Day from a daughter. The daughter also has a little dog and I've tried to colour him the same as their dog. His a little rogue! So holding a balloon is very fitting. The images are also layered. Yes it took a looooooong time but I'm please with the outcome. 

Enough rambling.....

Full Card

I am entering this into numerous challenges, so please bare with me! 

1. Tiddly Inks - CAS
2. Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
3. Creative Inspirations - Mother's Day
4. Fab & Funky - Cute & Cuddly

Phew! All done. Here's some more pics. 




Off to watch the footy... Come On You Bhoys In Green! 


Floral Mother's Day

Good Morning! 

Lot's of floral's this morning.. and ANOTHER Mother's Day card. This card was previously showcased in an earlier blog post but it was not part of the challenge. So I'm going to use it for two challenges.

I still have 2 more Mother's Day orders plus my own to do off my bro and me. Never had to do so many! 

Onto the card.. 

Full Card
I very nearly gave my butterfly punch to my mate.... sooooooooo glad I didn't! Think it adds that finishing touch? And the flowers, well... I found twisting the wires together to keep the flowers in place worked brilliantly. Attatching it was quite tricky tho! But, about time I used up some flowers & pearls out the flower box (It's still full by the way!) 

The challenges I am entering into are:

1. Creative Craft - Mother's Day
2. Oldie But A Goodie - Feeling Floral

A few more pictures of the card.

Bow & Butterfly

Another Full Card Picture
The colour looks better in the last picture. Always the way! No doubt I will be back later with another post. 




Today, I've mainly been making sentiment sheets to cut out and use on cards with some quirky little sayings. Took ages thinking of them all! 

I thought I'd use one on this card. The card is based on the Sketch Saturday sketch #248 although, my background is a little larger than it should as it over laps. But, you still get the gist. The brown panel has been embossed too. 

Full Card
the background is blue and not green as in the picture!

Off to start colouring another image before I go shout my little head off at the boys in claret & blue! Come On You Villa Boys!! 


Lazy Day Kaylee here today on a clean n crisp card. 

The challenge I am entering my card into is the My Time To Craft challenge of "Embossing". 
I have used embossing folders rather than use heat embossing. I decided on a clean and crisp card with a hint of colour. Luckily, I had enough purple ribbon! 

Here is Kaylee...

Full Card
I have used 2 different folders and added pearls for a bit more detail too.

Off to make a few more cards....

Anyone For Anya - photo inspiration...

Good Morning! 

It's actually sunny here for once! I will need my shades on! 

I was up and raring to go this morning. The image, I cut out and layered up last night and I already had an idea how I wanted to do the card. It was just a case of making it. 

The Anyone For Anya challenge is a photo inspiration plus a DT call. I'm entering in to both... EEEEEKKKKK!!!! 

Onto my card.
 I opted to use yellow & white with a hint of blue. The image I have used is "Cupcake Anya"

Full Card
 That's not the greatest picture... A few close ups to follow and another pic of the card.

Layered Image

The card is yellow, LOL! Although the lighting isn't the greatest so it looks peach/orange! 

I hope I have entered this is the right place now. I think I have but who knows lol. 


Shaped Cards

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you are all well. 

Straight into it then. Shaped cards, brilliant challenge as just this morning before work I finished 3 Mother's Day cards, all for 1 order, on 3 different shaped cards. I am entering only the first card into the Cupcake Craft Challenge but what to share the other 2 cards with you. 


So the card I'm entering is this one:

Full Card

It's for a Nan (obviously) but I've used a snowflake shaped card. These, I ♥ !! Wanted to keep the cards simple but elegant as well.

This was the first card out the set to be made. The other 2 are as follows:

Bracket Card

Scallop Card

All simple and elegant. They were so popular, that I now have another order for one. That's without even doing 2 for my Mommyo! Think the last one is my favourite!
