Sweet Sketch for Mum!

Today's card is a birthday card for Mum,using the sketch from "sweet sketch wednesday". This is the first time Ive entered this challenge but I couldn't resist this fab sketch!

Main bulk of card made using Coredinations cardstock & DCWV paper backing. CB embossed panel & die-cut letters. Lace I brought from my local fabric shop & Papermania flowers & gems to embellish. I am quite pleased with the overall effect as its a bit different for me having no stamped image!!!!

Hope you are enjoying the weather,we have been in the garden with the paddling pool again!

PB Challenge

Today's card is one I made for the PB challenge,this week it was a fab sketch designed by Nat. I couldn't wait to do this one as yesterday I brought this gorgeous new stamp from my local craft shop,its called "cheesecake dreams". I was also lucky enough to pick up a new FF stamp and some Christmas papers & co-ordinating Coredinations card stock for my Christmas cards. I am doing well with my goal of making a couple a week! Image coloured with Promarkers, backing paper is Anna Griffin,ribbon & flowers to embellish. I used glitter glue for flower centers as a change from gems. Hope you are enjoying the weather. We spent yesterday in the garden with the paddling pool then we had a lovely BBQ. Today we went to Birdworld with some friends,us & the kids had great fun! xxx

PB Challenge

Today's card is my entry for the Penny Black challenge,this week the theme was embossing. I decided to make a large card as I have only have small square ones left in my stand!

I forgot how much I like the larger cards,so you will be seeing a few more of them soon. I used "Froggy" stamped image coloured with Promarkers. The paper is spring burst from Papermania,greeting is a letraset rub-on. The corners have been hand embossed with flourishes, flowers & gems to embellish.

Hope you have been enjoying the sun, I found it too hot to sleep after my night shift!

Promarkers Challenge x

This is my card for the Promarkers weekly challenge,the colours this week were "Lemon & Meadow Green". I love these spring colours and found this challenge a lot easier than last week.

I cheated a bit with last week as I found the colours both too dark,maybe that's why I didn't get any comments from the DT(naughty girl lol!).

I am also enjoying the colouring tips very useful,so thanks for the tutorials!!!!!

Hope you enjoy the sun today!

Sketch Saturday!

Really enjoyed the sketch over on "Sketch Saturday" challenge blog this week. I think I prefer the simpler ones, bit tired of the collage look now. The card is a wedding card & the Bride is having pink as her Wedding colour so I wanted a pink theme. CB embossed swirls back round, K&CO lace border,image from Funstamps & coloured with Promarkers. Stamped greeting Hero arts,embellished with crystals. Hope you are having a lovely weekend. We are planning a nice relaxing family lunch by the canal and then a BBQ for Zack's Granddad's to celebrate Father's day. Needless to say I hope the weather is good!!!! xxx

2 in 1 ;)

Today's card is also an entry to 2 challenges, "passion for Promarkers" & "Just Christmas & birthday card" challenge blogs.

The challenge was to use Royal Blue & Berry Red Promarkers. The fab colours & sketch from "JCBC" really lent itself to a Christmas card.

Father's Day!

Today's card is made with the "Promarkers challenge blog" in mind. This weeks colours are Cinnamon & Pumpkin. I like the idea of this challenge blog as it is very slowly & afford ably expanding my collection of Promarkers!!!
The paper is "Hopscotch" from K&CO, buttons & torn card stock to add a more manly feel! I was brave & stamped greeting direct on to the card & highlighted with Pumpkin Promarker.
Happy Crafting

Sketch Saturday Comission!

This card is made using the fab "sketch Saturday" challenge sketch, I love the sketch's they design. I had to make a card for a friend & thought this simple and effective layout would lend itself to a Christening card. FF image coloured with Promarkers & layered on to glitter card. My new "curved rectangle" Nesties are proving very useful! Peel off corners,ribbon & flowers to embellish. Personalised greeting computer generated. I hope they like it! xxx

keep it simple

Today's card is one I made earlier in the week too try out my new "curved rectangle nesties". I am pleased with my choice and I think they will be well used as they are nice and versatile.
Tilda coloured with Promarkers,Prima flowers and die-cut message to finish.
Sorry it's a quick post today but I am exhausted after my night shift!!!!
I hope to get some crafting done at the weekend as I have a few orders to catch up on this week.
Happy crafting
