Bear Hug

Today's card is another for the Christmas box as I've got some catching up to do! I had a sudden need to do a bit of crafting tonight & I enjoyed making this one. This card is also my entry for two challenges this week. The theme was something new or neglected on your card this week on "Creative inspirations". My border punch is my neglected item as I love it but don't use it as much as I should. My new item is the FF stamp which was free with the new issue of "Creativity" magazine. On the promarkers blog the challenge this week was to use this fab sketch with any of your promarkers. My FF image has been coloured with saffron & sandstone.

Recipe: Papermill card, FF stamped image coloured with promarkers, Fiskars lace edged border punch, Green bow from stash, Die cut greeting .

Hope you are all well in blog land. I had a good catch up with your blogs this afternoon & enjoyed every minute! I think you've inspired me to do a bit more crafting again! xxx

Lost my mojo!

Today's post is long overdue,I have officially lost my mojo over the last couple of weeks & can't get into making cards at all! I am starting to panic as I only have 30 Christmas cards made so need to get cracking!!!! This is one of the 4 new baby cards I have made for all the new arrivals that are due in November. I find the scalloped edge cards work well for baby cards. Hope you are all well, any tips on how to inspire me will be gratefully received!! xxx

Promarkers challenge

Today's post is my entry for the Promarkers challenge blog. This week you could use any colours with the following recipe: 3 shapes,2 papers,1 ribbon. I love doing recipes as they are a bit more creative than a sketch. Recently I have not been so keen on doing all the sketch challenges,its nice to have a bit more input. Particularly as I love the simpler,fresher card layouts. Hope you are having a good week, Autumn collages went down a storm at Toddler group,so just a night shift on the ward to get through now lol!!!! xxx

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

In the pink!

Quick post today as we are off to a friends house for lunch & then I have toddler group craft to prepare this afternoon! I have made this card for a friends birthday next week. The card is also my entry for the "3 clovers" challenge blog,this is the first time I've entered this one. I have used Marshmallow from "Daisy & Dandelion" stamp set. Coloured with Promarkers, I have got a few of the new shades which are very pretty. I would never spend all that money on collecting the full set, I have about 40 pens now and feel this is enough to achieve good results. Happy Crafting xxx

Saturday, October 03, 2009

Back with a challenge at last!

Today's post is my entry for the "JCBC's" challenge blog,I loved this clean & simple sketch this time. This is my first post for about 10 days, what a bad blogger! I have not really been in a crafty mood. However today I have sorted out my shed & unpacked a few Promarkers and a "Daisy & Dandelion" kit I treated my self too. I never usually use kits anymore but I am really enjoying making a few cards with decoupage & stickers for a change. I know its cheating,but it can be satisfying getting a few more done when time is short!
  • Daisy & Dandelion papers,stickers & greeting
  • Gold ribbon
  • gold bow

Hope you have a nice weekend & hope to get some blog hopping done soon!

Tilda I missed ya!

Today's post is a card I made yesterday for the Christmas box,this is number 29!!!!!! I used one of my Magnolia's from last years Christmas stamp club. I have not used any Tilda's for ages and I had forgot what a joy to colour they are!!! I must make more use of them, instead of buying more new stamps!!!!! Instead I could buy a few more promarkers ;) I am off now too prepare the kids craft activity at Toddler group, tissue paper flower gardens! xxx

Just Because!

Hello,sorry I have not posted much this week. I have not had as much time to craft this week as I would have hoped,despite me having another week off work!
Today's cards are a selection of Christmas cards I have made,not for any challenges, just what I wanted to make. I think have been following too many sketches recently, as I really enjoyed doing what I want for a change.
Got a busy weekend which hopefully includes a trip to Gunwarf so I can restock at Papermill. My two boxes of thick white card have lasted a whole year!
Hope you all have a fab weekend,hope to get some blog hopping done so I can catch up soon.

Christmas mood!

Today's card is another Christmas card for the box.I seem to be enjoying making them at the moment! Last year they felt like such a chore,perhaps its because I am making them slowly throughout the year,less pressure lol. The sketch is from the "Just Christmas & Birthdays" challenge blog, I just simplified the sketch a bit. I am really enjoying simpler card layouts at the moment. This challene blog is also helping me to stay motivated with the Christmas cards! Recipe:
  • Wrapping paper
  • Daisy & Dandelion free stamp coloured with promarkers
  • Snowtex
  • Anita's Christmas ribbon
  • Peel off stars
  • Brad & charm from stash

I have been avoiding craft day today on QVC . I always end up ordering stuff I don't really need if I watch it too much. Instead I went online this morning and looked through all the days products,and selected what I do need. I have ordered a couple as a pay day treat!

The Prima flower kit(as it was such good value), also couldn't resist the Coredinations black magic card pack. I think this card looks fab when embossed & sanded with CB embossing folders.

Hope to get out in the craft shed tonight as I am working tomorrow night, can't complain its my last shift before I get 3 weeks off,yipee!!!!!


Friday, August 21, 2009

Dotty about men!

Today I have at last managed to make a couple of much needed male cards. I don't make as many male cards so am running very low on them!
Today I made a visit to the craft shop and treated myself to a few items, one of which was a "Daisy & Dandelion" teddy fishing stamp. Hopefully this will give me the incentive to make a few more male cards!
I also brought a few more reels of Grosgrain ribbon to go on my new ribbon rack, some textured snow paste(for my Xmas cards). The snakeskin Cuttlebug embossing folder also jumped into my basket!
Back to today's post. These cards are also my entry for the "creative inspirations" challenge blog,the theme this week is dots & circles. I thought Footballer Edwin would be perfect along with the Swiss dots embossing folder!
  • Edwin coloured with promarkers
  • DCWV paper
  • CB embossed coredinations card stock
  • Papermania adhesive pearls
  • stamped PB greeting
  • Fiskars border stamp

Hope you are having a great week, I am off to the craft shed to try out my new goodies!

Big Improvements

Today's card is another Christmas card made with the free stamp from "Creativity" magazine. I Haven't seen any sketches I like this week on the challenge blogs so it was great to just do what I fancied!
I have researched some nice simpler layouts recently, I defiantly think less is more with my cards!
This weekend I have been making good progress in the craft shed, a friend kindly built me a new wall mounted ribbon rack! I am very pleased with it,just need a few more reels to make it look less empty ;)
I also had a good clean out and hoover, with a little help from Zack!!!!

The Big 70!

Today's card is a for my Father in Laws birthday on Tuesday, the big 70! Ive used the Sketch from this weeks challenge over on "sweet sketch Wednesday",I enjoy there sketch's as they don't just use the square layouts like a lot of the other challenge blogs seem to.

  • Fimo buttons
  • House mouse image

  • Prima flowers

My second card today was made for the "House Mouse Challenge Blog", house mouse stamps have become my new addiction, the images are lovely and they stamp so well!
