Wedding card

Hello and hope you are all well.

Just a quick post today as I am supposed to be getting all my holiday clothes bought and packed but instead decided to make a card for a wedding my daughter is going to tonight.

The image is new, its the first time I have used it and its is from LOTV, coloured in with my promarkers. Some backing papers from DCWV, organza ribbon and a spray of silver sparkle glitter.

Hope you like it.

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

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:

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

Hope you like it

Nice and Bright

It is my niece's birthday the end of this month so I though I would make her birthday card today and see if I could enter any challenges at the same time.

I have used one of my many LOTV stamps, I really like this stamp but for some reason don't seem to use it very often. She has been coloured in using promarkers, my glitter card is from DCWV, but the backing papers I found in my stash and I have probably had them years. I used my Martha Stewart punch, pink satin ribbon, a bit of glitter and paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have entered the following challenges:

I love Promarkers
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
Pile It On - All about cute children
Simon Says - Sketch
Stampavie and more - Sparkling
Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes.

Hope you like it
