Good afternoon crafters

and a huge welcome to my blog - I thought I would share some cards I made last night, made mainly with SU products.  I got to use one of my favourite punches and stamp sets again....

Here is the 1st one inspired by a sketch

the 2nd one I just love the colour ways on this one - I have messed up with this one as I cut around the flowers and I shouldn't have - hey ho..
and the final one which is the one using my favourite punch and stamp set is....

I had a great creative evening and am quite proud of my efforts

Have a good evening I am just waiting for my daughter and her partner to turn up for dinner

Queen for a day .....

Oh heck, not a job I would enjoy I don't think there would be much time for crafting !!!!  And Phillip would get cross with me when the corgis got covered in glitter !!!!

Now this is our challenge over at CRAFT and you may interpret as you will..I used a digi image from Sassy Studios.  I love the image but not my colouring as for the 1st time I have used Neenah card and I am not impressed....

Do any of you know about such things, what have I done wrong as the colour just seems to have spread but not really blended!!!  I have used flexmarkers and promarkers and then for a change I decided to use plain card for the backing instead of patterned....

This is a scheduled post so have to dash as I am meeting a friend for coffee (no cake though).

Enjoy the rest of your week and have a super weekend

Christmas in April ???

Well it is over at CRAFT Challenges - we have a new sponsor too

This lovely little digi is called "Candy Elf"
I decided that instead of matting and layering him I would put a nice ivory border around him and carefully cut around him..perfect..
Coloured with my promarkers and the dp's are from my huge stash and i do believe were a freebie from a magazine ...

Do feel free to come and join in this weeks challenge

CRAFT Challenge -

Good evening

I'd love to say thank crunchie it's Friday but I am working over-time tomorrow, but then am going out for a late lunch with my very good friend Michelle. so not all bad !!!

Right CRAFT challenge theme this week is recycled so we would like you to use something on your project that has been re-cycled.  I used some string that was tied around a pressie that my eldest daughter bought me a while ago.  I have also used a butterfly that was on a bookmark a friend made for me, the only reason I took it off was because i kept catching it on my book and was worried I would rip it.  The image is from Doodle Dragon's and I think it is so funny.  The sentiment stamp and punch are from Stampin up and if you look closely I have whizzed around the edges of my yellow cardstock with a tracing wheel to make little pinpricks....

Right then now it's your turn, please come and join in the fun here as we have some fab prizes again this week...

Challenges are....Cards for men....Papertake Weekly

Love and hugs til next week
