Happy Easter

Hi Everybody,
Just a quick post to wish you all a very happy Easter!
.. and to share some good news with you.
My copy of the May issue of Quick Cards Made Easy came through the post today, it’s due in the shops next week Thursday, 24th April. As always there is a great cover gift, embossing folder and stamp, it’s packed with great care ideas and best of all a card of mine features in the ‘Designer for a Day’ feature on page 73.
Here’s a pic to proof it:


Have a lovely Easter weekend. I shall be back soon with more makes.
Until then
Happy Crafting!!!! ūüôā

More Kittens

Hi Everybody,

back with my third post of the day …

I know I could have combined my cards, but I wanted each of them to stand out on their own.

more kittens

You might remember the image by A Day for Daisies from a recent post of mine. For this card here I used some patchwork papers for the background hence I allowed for more white card around the image. I then simply finished off with a flourish, some faux stitching, daisies and gems.

I would like to enter this one into the Childhood Challenge at Moo-Mania.

Enjoy and

Happy Crafting!!! ūüôā

Heart Full of Love

Hi Everybody,

thanks for all your lovely comments. They are very much appreciated.

Today I got 2 cards for you …

… the first one is catty … and I love it …

Heart Full of Love

I coloured my image using Promarkers mounted it on so saffron card, attached it to my green base card, stamped my sentiment in black, added some crystal effects to the sentiment and once dry finished by adding some green twine.

My image is from A Day For Daisies, the sentiment is from STAMPlorations (MOM¬†Subway Art Builders sets), card is from Stampin’Up! and twine from The Ribbon Girl.

I want to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More – green and yellow

Allsorts – Spring – green and yellow for me are the Spring colours

CAS(e) this sketch –¬†¬† I a sort of jigged it a little bit round.

And now to my next card …

Cute as a Button

For this card I simply layered some subtly patterned paper on pink card and added some faux stitching. I then stamped the pram on a small piece of pink card, added some sparkle using a gel pen before adding some crystal effects. I stamped three banners and the running sentiment before assembling as shown and adding a tiny button to finish.

All stamps are by Woodware and paper by Crafter’s Companion.

I want to enter this card into the following challenges:

House of Cards – cute/shabby and add a button – I went for cute and button

Addicted to CAS – baby

That’s it from me for today, back tomorrow with my DT piece for the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge and Friday with another green and yellow beauty (not the challenge theme) as my DT piece the STAMPlorations Challenge Blog, where the bi-weekly Sketch Challenge is already in full swing. Hope to see you there …
