Flower Challenge

I have made this card for my youngest daughter's friend at school who will be 5 towards the end of this month. The Moving Along With The Times challenge is 'Flowers' so I thought I'd use my Sarah Kay Stamp which has lots of pretty flowers on it and teamed it up with some flowery paper too.
You can never have too many flowers in a flower challenge!! :0)

Another thank you card. Not sure who this one is for, I just wanted to use my new butterfly die that my mum also bought me for Christmas. This time I double died the Thanks sentiment on to cream and then orange card and then layered them to make it pop more.
I'm not sure I did too well on the colour scheme but I do love the butterflies.

Happy New Year

I made this card card for my mum. She bought me the square vine die and the mushroom die for Christmas and then gave me the "Thanks" die as she had two. The Gnome stamp and die to cut him out is from a set I got free with a magazine and is coloured using Promarkers. I think it all goes really well together. Just added the little butterflies to bring all the colours together and fill in some of the white space.

Happy New Years Eve.

I thought I’d start the year off well by joining in with the Less is More challenge. I’ve not done any blogging in years so hopefully this might be the start of me getting back into it now my youngest has started school. Their challenge is Birds/Feathers.

Not sure if this has enough white space to qualify but I enjoyed making it anyway. 
The bird stamp is one that came free with a magazine and it's coloured using promarkers. 

Ha ha, except it really is that long since I've done any blogging I've actually managed to enter the wrong competition and done the one that's just finished rather than the current one. Ha ha ha!!! Oh dear, off to a great start!! Oh well at least I've made a card. :-)

Xmas Card

I've finally got round to making some Christmas cards. This one is using a Penny Black stamp (always a favourite) and is coloured with Promarkers which I'm still getting to grips with.

Yes I am still here!!! :-)

I made this card for one of the little girls that Poppy-Skye has made friends with at some of the toddler groups we go to. She was two last Wednesday.

I bought the card kit from Create and Craft a couple of weeks ago as I don't really have time to stamp and colour these days with a toddler in the house, so thought I'd use the kit to "cheat" for a while until I get chance to go back to stamping and colouring when Poppy-Skye is a bit older and not quite so demanding of my attention.

Teachers' Gift

This is still a work in progress. I've just ordered some Tim Holtz Hitch Fasteners to go on the front of the drawer but as I haven't posted anything for a while again and I'm supposed to be making more of an effort I thought I'd put it on anyway.
The papers are by Do Crafts
The stamp and sentiment are by Crafter's Companion
The banner stamp is from a set by Do Crafts
The image is part coloured with Twinkling H2Os and part paper pieced
The flowers and leaves on the left are dies by Marianne Designs
The leaves on the right are a die by Little Claire Designs
Oh and the fancy scalloped edging is a die from the Spellbinders Edgeablities range.

I think that's covered everything. :0)

50th Birthday Card

I have a friend who likes me to make special cards for her for her family but she usually has a very clear idea about what she wants on it. This can be both a blessing and a curse. For her dad's 50th she wanted a card with a picture of a motorbike on it, balloons, glitz but very masculine glitz and on the outside she wanted "To a Dad" and on the inside "who makes turning 50 look cool"

The photo of the motorbike I got off the internet which I mounted onto black and then silver metalic card. The patterned paper is by Hot off the Press (I think) which I added silver and black gems to. The balloons and lettering on the front were made using dies by Go Kreate.

For the inside I printed the words on the computer and then added the 50 which I made using my Cricut. I again added little silver gems to the 0 to add the bling. To finish I stamped the image of the bike onto white card then cut round it and added it to the bottom corner.

She was really made up with it and said her dad loved it too! Phew! :0)
