Shaped cards

Come on then dig out those templates and those funny shaped cards you bought (cos they seemed like a good idea at the time!!!) and come and join us over at CRAFT Challenges this week.

I have made this one (terrible piccie though) but the tesco shopping man turned up just as the last of the light disappeared, so had to put the shopping away first !!!!  I have used a Dreamee template (although i had trouble getting it to stand up for me!!) and a darling little image called Audrey from The Stamping Boutique.  Coloured her with my promarkers and everything else on there is from a docrafts goodie bag..

Do come and join us as we have lots of great prizes on offer this week....

Right off to work we go (after I have been to the hospital for my pre-op checks) damn teeth!!!

Fairies ..................................!!!

Now for those that know me well - know that I do not DO Fairies...I hate anything with wings - they scare me!!!!  I am fine with birds and butterflies as long as they stay still and don't flap their wings but the minute they open their wings i am off - running for the hills.

The challenge this week at CRAFT Challenges is "Fairies"  - Oh no i thought but then I was given this fab digi by Krista Smith from Saturated Canary and her name is Whispy.

She is so cute even with her fairy wings...I have coloured her with my promarkers, used some fab DCWV backing papers and then some butterflies and a swirl from my stash.

Do come and join in the fun over at CRAFT Challenges this week as we love looking at everyone's creations

What is.....?????

Your favourite colour combo???? that is our challenge over at Nutcrafters

I have a couple but one of my favourites is pink and brown so I chose to use one of the new digis and make a little gift bag - well actually it's not that little and perfect for a little girl whose birthday party I am going to in October.

I got the idea from here at Little Claire's - clever Gaynor gave me the inspiration so thank you for that.

I have used backing papers from a swap and some freebie ones, my martha stewart punch for the frilly edge, some fancy lacey ribbon from a super friend over at timcraft and finally butterflies and bows from my stash.  I coloured in with my promarkers of course...

Do come and join us over at the Nutcrafters Challenge and you never know - this week may be your lucky week....

Good morning...

To you all - hoping you are all fine and dandy!!!!!

This week over at CRAFT Challenges our DT challenge was to make a "BOX" and incorporate one of the sponsors' digi images into it.
So I used a lovely ribbon and holly digi from Robyn's Fetish and decoupaged it on my little pillow box.  This was so easy to make as i printed the template straight onto some Kanban card, coloured my image with my promarkers and then added some ribbon and a swirl (re-cycled from an old Christmas card i had from a friend last year)

I loved making the little box and will certainly be making more nearer to the big day as little stocking fillers.

Please do come and join in the fun as we have lots of lovely prizes up for grabs from our fab sponsors

Love and hugs

Fish Whisperer for my brother!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good morning again followers

I am back again to show you my DT card I have made for CRAFT Challenges - the theme being "Add a Charm"

We have fab sponsors and prizes on offer as usual and I chose to work with Gus - the fish whisperer as i knew just the charm i could use for this card

The papers I have used are from Making Cards May 2010 and just perfect for this male card for my super brother.  He loves fishing so i know he will think this card is just perfect for him...  I have coloured Gus in with my oh so trusty promarkers  and the sketch is from Pink Gem Designs (thanks for the inspiration)

My turn !!!!

Good morning crafters

Today it is my turn to host the challenge over at Nutcrafters.  I have chosen the theme of embossed backgrounds so that we could all dust off those embossing folders and show us what you make with them.

I have of course used a nutcrafter digi - coloured with my promarkers, a Happy Birthday embossing folder and then just added some stars - also coloured with my promarkers.

My lovely team mates have some fab projects to inspire you, so why not pop on over and take a peek

Enjoy your week ahead

Love and hugs

It's sketch time...

Good morning to you all

Hope you are all well and not too wet...did i blink and miss the summer???????

Over at CRAFT Challenges this week we have a lovely clean and simple sketch for you.  I quite enjoy following sketches.

I have coloured my image with promarkers and flexmarkers and the backing paper is a freebie from one of the mags this month.  My image is from "My Heart Pieces" and is called "Can you see the beach"..I love it and definitely think i should have done a shabby chic card  - maybe next time ....

Do come and join in the fun as we have lots of great sponsors which can only mean one thing.....lots of prizes.

Enjoy the rest of your day, I shall be in a training room full of nurses whilst you are reading this and wishing it was home time....
