Sarah Kay wallet card

I so love this Sarah Kay image, can you tell? lol. I have coloured the image with Prisma pencils. didn't like the colour of the basket so covered it with some green card, think what we call a happy accident. The papers are DCWV, flowers from my stash and card stock is Bazzil. The stamped greeting is Autumn leaves, i like the circular greetings.

Papertake Weekly challenge

I have at long last made a card this week! I have been so busy doing other things that have been sadly neglected, feel much better now i have got things sorted :) This is the first time i have used this Sugar Nellie stamp and must say it took a lot of colouring in as its quite a big stamp. I chose the Papertake weekly challenge as i love Katharina's sketches. The papers are the lovely K&Co again, with some DCWV card stock added. The corner scroll is a cuttlebug die cut, birthday greeting is Pink Petticoat. The flowers are from the bags of mixed flowers that Sarah's cards sell. The image has been coloured in with Prisma pencils and a little bit of glamour dust added for sparkle.

A Major BugBear!

A MAJOR BUGBEAR! As the pollen from flowers are a problem to a lot of people (or a BUGBEAR should we say!), this months challenge is to NOT use a FLOWER, BUG or BEAR on the ATC! A chance to use some of the other Cuddly Buddly download sets or stamps. This was the challenge over at the ATC Cuddly Buddly challenge blog. I have used the church angel set and added some glamour dust on the wings.I made this to give to my friend who lost her Mum on Monday, its a little guardian angel to see her through the sad time. I have cheated a little as noticed there are some flowers on the cross, whoops!

Our Anniversary

Today is our Anniversary so though best make an effort and do dear hubby a card. This was a quick card using one of the Jayne Netley cds, there are some wonderful images on these disc's and i can see me using them quite a bit, especially for men's cards. I have printed the image onto linen card , matting and layering done with card stock. The greeting was printed on my PC and the score lines where done with my score board. I think it took all of 10 minutes to make!!

Waiter Edwin

I have followed the sketch from Ismaki challenge this week to make this card. I have left the greeting off as could be for any occasion, anniversary or congratulations card. Have used Edwin from my new summer set from Magnolia stamps, this is a fab set so watch out for more cards made with this set. I have used Papermania papers once again, with DCWV card stock. Edwin was coloured in with Prismas, the shirt and tie where paper pierced.
