Macbeth meets Mojo Monday

I so love this image from Sugar Nellies, he is adorable isn't he?? Macbeth is his name and he has been coloured with prisma pencils. This is very similar to the previous card, as have used SU paper again with left over card. The stars are cut with quickutz die and border don with threading water punch.
I have made this card for a very special friends from the cuddly buddly forum, he hasn't been feeling to good lately so we thought we would send a card to help cheer him up.

Here is Pringle from the fab soft centres range at Sugar Nellies called in with Promarkers and Prisma pencils, they are so sweet and cuddly.
The papers are my new SU papers that i adore, so had to cut wisely lol, the colours are so easy to match with these papers as you just pick up ideas from the papers. The greeting is computer generated. Flowers are Prima and lil buttons from my stash, leaves cut with Quickutz die and border punch is 'Threading water' from Friskars.
I am late posting tonight as have an awful head cold :( and fell asleep when i came home from work.
Now what challenge shall i enter this in???mmmm its qualifies for Secret crafter- 'Cute as a button' and a spoonful of Sugar, which is blooming marvelous.

I have tried to follow the secret crafter challenge but had to improvise in place as ran out of space whoops!! Was a great sketch this week and really inspired me to make a card. The image has been coloured with promarkers, DP is HOTP and the greeting is hero art.

Lil Sleeping Mouse

This is quite a plain Christmas card using one of the cute Elzybell Christmas stamps, isn't the mouse so cute ?? I have coloured with Promarkers and added some glamour dust for that lil bit of sparkle. The papers are HOTP, as is the embellishment. I got this set from QVC a few years ago and still go back and use a lil bit of it each Christmas :)

Meet Rory

At last a card and for a change its not a Christmas card!! These papers are a freeby from Jules, thank you :) they came with my Stampin Up! order on Saturday, aren't they yummy?? They are from the cute pie collection. I have followed this weeks sketch from sketch Saturday but flipped the layout. The image is Rory from the Home grown range at Sugar Nellies, my son bought me a few stamps and i said surprise me. Well Rory has been coloured in with Promarkers and layered onto DCWV card stock. The greeting is from hero arts and cut out with my new SU tab punch, which is just the right size for these greetings.

Ding Dong Merrily

This was made with very bright colours, i think you may need your shades on to look at this card lol. Its a Cuddly Buddly Christmas stamp but thought it could be used for an Anniversary card or even a Birthday card. I did struggle with my mojo towards completing my 24 cards i made for the gallery, its trying to think of something different for each stamp.
I am not to sure i like this card, lol.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend x x
