Faye and Freddie

Thought it was about time for another blog post on this lovely sunny day. I bought this lovely stamp a few days ago, and instead of buying and then putting away, I decided to actually use it! It is a Sugar Nellie stamp, great quality as always called Faye & Freddie. I assume the frog is Freddie, lol.

I coloured it with Promarkers and not the usual shades I pick either, tried to use different colours for a change. I used Sizzix heart frames cut out with my Grand Calibur and embossed with a butterfly embossing folder, sorry cant remember which one. The border flourish was from by Home Accents cart and cut from my Cricut. A ribbon, sentiment and a brad and its all done.

Now I just have to decide who to give it too. Sorry about the rubbish photo, need to improve on that.

I am going to enter the following challenges:

I love Promarkers - Use Diecuts. My diecuts come from the Sizzix frames and the Cricut.
Divas by Design - Fabulous Flourishes.
Passion for Promarkers - Birthdays.
Emerald faires Challenge Blog - Embossing, Dry.
The Sugar Bowl - Free for All

Feel free to leave a comment so that I can pop over to your blog too.

First post in ages

Feels like it has been forever since my last post, but I have been making cards! My teenagers have been off school on study leave and have been using my craft room for revision, as the exams are now over and they are back to school today I finally got back in there to make a card.

Its a really quick and simple card from me. A birthday card for my Nephew who will be 14 this week.

Image was stamped and coloured with promarkers and backed onto a square card with papers from DCWV. A big peel off (forgot I still had them, lol)
Hoping to get my mojo back and will start posting again soon.

Managed to fit in a couple of challenges:

Craft your passion - Anything goes
Passion for promarkers - Blue/Brown
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes

House Mouse.

Another quick post today. I have been asked by a friend to make a Birthday card for her Aunt so I decided to use a House Mouse stamp I have had about 8 years!

The image has been coloured with promarkers and backed onto a bright and cheery yellow background. Love the combination of yellow and brown. Papers are from my stash and the shimmer card is from DCWV. I used one of my large Martha Stewart punches and some yellow ribbon.

Hope my friend likes it!

Entered a couple of challenges too:

DYSU Challenge Blog - Bold & Bright
Simply Create - Anything Goes

Happy Birthday.................

A quick post today as real life has overtaken me recently so I have not had much of a chance to do some blogging.

Apologies for the rubbish photo, my batteries on my camera have just run out and I don't have any spare to do a better picture.

I used one of my lovely LOTV images, coloured in with promarkers, not sure where the backing papers are from but I do like the colours, Martha Stewart punch, Card Candy and Organza ribbon.

I have entered the following challenges:

Stamps R Us - One for the Girls
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Birthday Wishes
CES Challenge Blog - Spots & Stripes

Hope you like it
