I'm Back!

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I have been a bit Awol, family life took a bit over so did not have time for any crafting! But managed one card tonight and probably will be the only one till we get back from our holidays!

So the card above I made as Fathersday is one of these days and not too sure if I will get time for some more Fathersday cards.
I entered this card into the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday which I used the sketch from
I love Promarkers which had a recipe: 2 Papers, 3 buttons, 1 Ribbon
Simon Says Stamps which has a Fathersday Theme
Creative Cottage which is Fatherday too.
Well hope everyone found this inspiring, I certainly enjoyed making it!
Till next time.......

Strawberries and Cream!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

So how are everyone doing today? It is a bit miserable and cold here, don't know what happened to summer?

Anyhow so instead of doing some gardening this morning I made a card instead.....don't we just all look for an excuse to make some cards?

So this morning I decided to make a card with no particular challenge in mind apart from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday as the sketch has been on my table since last week wednesday so decided to use the sketch and just go along with whatever next I can lay my hands on and then I will check afterwards which challenges it qualifies for and guess what there is just loads going on at the minute. So I have decide to enter my card in the following challenges.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday which is the sketch
Passion for Promarkers - Theme: Strawberries and Cream
The Crafty Pad - Use Punches
Papertake Weekly wants to see something shiny or sparkly
Stamp Something which is a Birthday Card oh and lastly
Paperplay which is Digi and Bling

The digi was a freebie from Sliekje Digis Stamps, she shares free digi's quite often, so it is worth visiting her blog.

So I hope you all like my card and thank you for visiting my blog!

Have a fabulous day and we will catch up again soon....

Tomorrow is Friday!

Hello Everyone!

Yay its Friday tomorrow, does that not just make everyone happy? I just love the weekends!

Managed to make one more card before the weekend and I will be away over the weekend so no more crafting from me for a wee while....

Today's card I made using the sketch over on the Passion for Promarkers Blog as I really thought this was a lovely layout but did give me some hassle think my frames was to big to start with so had to change my card size about 3 times, they alos wanted us to create our own flowers, well mines okay but nothing as flashy as what they got on there, the cards on there is just of such a high standard, luckily I only do it for fun and learn things from these challenges I do everyday.
The next challenge I entered it in to was the challenge over on A spoon full of Sugar blog as they wanted us to 3D something that why I added the second frame on top of my image with some foam squares an my flowers is pretty 3D too in the flesh. I then added the two bows, buttons and the bling in the corners of the frame as this was the recipe they wanted us to use over on the Simon Says Challenge Blog. Then the last challenge I entered it into was the Cuttlebug Spot challenge as they wanted to use your favourite Cuttlebug flowers which I just did!
This was really a whole lot of fun and it gets you thinking specially when entering in a few challenges at a time..but I really enjoyed it and again learned a few new tricks along the line....
Well, Hope you all enjoy the weekend ahead and I will catch up again with everybody on Monday as we will be away for the weekend!

Enjoy whatever you do!

Weather is pretty crap here so not sticking my nose out the door....

Mad another card today with lovely summer colours just has a nice summery feel to it! I made it for a 8th year old which is having a neon colour party on the weekend! I used a free image which is called Mae's Boquet from 'some odd girls blog' which I coloured with my promarkers. The papers was a free download from the Crafts Beautiful Webpage.

Fabulous Tuesday!

Morning All,

Firstly I want to say a very Big Thank You for everyone that left some lovely comments on my blog, it is really nice to read through them and see what everyone has to say about my cards it is very uplifting! So THANK YOU!

So today I made a Card using Sketch 9 on the Anyone for Anya blog. I used the colours Aqua to create my card because it just went so well with the image, which then made it qualify for the Challenge on The Pink Elephant Challenge blog as they wanted you to use the colour Aqua.

I really didn't went over board with this card just kept it simple as they sometimes say 'less is sometimes more' I just thought it looked nice without adding anything else to it! But any advice or comments on this is welcome, can't wait to see what everyone thinks!

Well, Hope everyone has a lovely Tuesday and the weather is as nice where you are as it is here by us at the minute!

Lovely Day!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Hope everyone had a lovely day so far, it is pretty sunny here but unfortuneatly the wind is blowing everything away, so instead of sticking my nose out the door I've been busy this morning making a lovely card for a little girls birthday which is this weekend coming.
So I used a Sugar Nellie image which I coloured using my Promarkers and then I used some very fine glitter on the wings to give it a nice shiny effect. I then used the sketch 99 from the Fridaysketchers Blog and the papers was free from the Cardmaking and Papercraft site I used the colour green as the theme for The Creative Cottage is 'Going Green' I then made my own flowers using my Cuttlebug and the daisy die as the Pollycraft Challenge blog has a challenge on this week requiring you to create your own flowers.
Thanks once again for having a look at my blog! Have a Great Day!

Black, White & 1 Other Colour

Evening All,

Hope everyone Had a good weekend. Mine was pretty busy, but thankfully got a bit of crafty time this afternoon.

I made this card using a Papermania Clear Duo stamp and coloured it with the Magenta Promarker, and then sticked some of the little gems on the images, and the curls was cut with a Cricut machine.

I made this using the colours Black, white and Pink as it is the theme they have got on over on the I love Promarkers Challenge blog. I made this card using a lovely sketch on the Papertake Weekly Challenge. I am quite happy with my end result as I think these colours works well together.

Enjoy and thank You for everyone's lovely comments on my previous blog entries it is really very much appreciated!

So here it goes I made this card using the Mo Manning digital Stamp and colouring it with my promarkers I used some glitter on the fairy wings (which by the way doesn't look to good in the photo but it looks really lovely and shiny if you see it for real) Then I die cut some frames from two different colours of card and the backing paper is from the Papermania Love range, added some ribbon, brads and a peel off and some embellishments from my stash!

So I decided to enter this card in the following challenges which you could go and have a look at if you would like to take part yourself!

The Pixie Cottage Challenge 15 which was a lovely sketch which I used but had to flip it around a bit so that my images could all fit on, and it had to be for a lady (which I made it for one special lady I had in mind)

Secondly was the new challenge over on Mo's Digital Pencil where I got the image from which had a recipe you had to follow by using Ribbon,brads and designer paper!

First Challenge Entry!

HI, Everyone

Well, Here it goes! I am not very familiar with all this blogging going on and just starting to have a go at this!

Well, I was just reading through a few blog for interesting tips and what hot and what's not!

That is when I came across the Crafty Craftmakers blog and saw the challenge they have got on! Heading: A Challenging Challenge!

After reading through this and a wee think for a couple of days I decided to give it a try!

And the Card above is what I came up with!
This was a Challenging Challenge for me because it was one of my very first Stamps I bought Used it once and then never again as it always seems to have too much shading! Secondly I struggle doing Male cards I do not know why I just find it so much easier to make a girly girl card! These Papers is from Papermania which I bought with probably my very first Craft Stash!
And Thirdly this was a challenge for me in itself as it is my very first attempt to enter a challenge!
And I can be sure it is still going to be a very big Challenge to get this posted correctly and linked! So lets see how it goes!
Well, Thank you for taking the few minutes to have a look at my Creation! Hope to get a bit more active on here in the near future!
See again soon KX
