PB Frame That Duck

I have to say i like the over all look of this card and am quite pleased with the way it turned out. The stamp is a PB one coloured in with promarkers,need i say lol.... The MS punch has been used yet again. All the design papers are from SU, yep junior varsity again, only set i have at the minute but am working on that ;) I have used nesties label set 1, love this set and can see me using it a lot. The little cutly bits i made with some card cut very thinly and wound around my pokey tool, i saw something similair on Tara's blog (thanks Tara ) The flowers are prima, have added a SU brad. I have made the card to enter the PB challenge which was 'Frame It'.

Thank You Amy

I didn't make this card it was made for me by Amy to say "thank you" for stamping her some magnolia images. Can you believe Amy is only nine??I thinks she has made a beautiful job of colouring the 'Forever Friends bear' and the card is lovely :) Thank you Amy and of course i will stamp you some more images :)
I know Amy and her mum look a the blog so would be nice if you could leave her a comment :) I work with Amy's mum Helen who is into card making like me, we love to natter about crafting when time allows :)

Forever Friends

Firstly sorry about the quality of this photo but was a little gloomy when i took it, the weather that is lol... not me. I stamped the FF bear with memento black ink and coloured with Promarkers. I have forgotten what paper i used as was out of my stash as was the little organza bow and metal charm. The embossing has been done with cuttlebug embossing folder, punched the border with friskars threading water punch.

Anyone For cakes!

I have made this card using my SU! stamps that i got last month from Jules, they are called 'Crazy For Cupcakes'. I have coloured with Promarkers and added glamour dust to added that iced look. The papers and card are also SU! the dp are called 'Junior Varsity', can't remember the colours of the card. I am so impressed with the way all the colours blend together, really helps when matting and layering. I did try and follow Dawny's sketch on PTW but have added an extra strip of card across the middle as looked a little plain, so don't know if it still counts in the challenge?!

In the Pink

This little cutie has been coloured with Promarkers, the papers where so pretty i didn't want to add to many embellishments so just glittered the butterflies. The dark days makes it very difficult to get a good photo, need some nice natural sunlight to show the true colours.
I have used my MS doily stamp again i can see me using this quite a lot, just as well as it didn't come cheap lol.. The sentiment has been made on the PC ..
Tomorrow i will show you what i have been making with my SU! goodies, am well impressed with their stamps, especially love my new greeting stamps.

PB & Mojo Monday Sketch

I have made this card for this weeks Penny Black challenge but also followed the sketch by Julee on the Mojo Monday blog, which is one of my favourite places for sketches and cards. I have struggled with this card. I coloured the image in 3 times before i was happy with white i had done, had promarkers out and Prisma pencils.
I have today received my SU! order from Jules so hoping to have a play with that tomorrow :) I also won a set of stamps this month so am a happy bunny :)
This stamp i have used i bought last year when i went to the NEC and have never used it until now, how bad is that?? A whole 10 months it has sat in my crafting trolley waiting to be used shameful isn't it?

Bath Time Bear

Here is my first card for 2009. I have made this card following Linda's challenge on Cuddly Buddly, which was a fabby sketch with the theme being blue. Anyone can join in this challenge if you join the forum, there is a fabby prize up for grabs to from Kim. I have quite a few of Kim's downloads, they print out so clearly. This little cutie is a brilliant set called 'Bath time Bear' blue, they also do it in pink. The gingham papers are 'Little Kwackerz' papers set in blue, also available in pink and yellow. I have added some glamour dust on the bubbles to make them glisten a little bit.

Sorry, Sorry!!

I have to confess i made this card before Christmas, my mojo still hasn't returned :( I have a few days off work next week so am hoping to get back into it, if not then i don't know what i am going to do with all the crafting stuff i have.
I have been visiting all your lovely blogs and have to say there is lots of inspiration out there so i should pull my socks up and get on with it.
The image is Forever friends and has been coloured with Promarkers, dsp is from my stash can't remember what it is lol.. The lil brads also from my stash and ribbon i bought in many colours from Abakan some time ago.
Hope to be able to share something with you all next week :)
