Time to party!

Well here is the second quick card of the day.  It is also my sisiters birthday in January and I had to make her card before we try to travel down to Cornwall tomorrow!  Still covered in 5 inches of snow outside our door here.  Theo is no longer complaining that he never has any snow but is now saying he has had enough of it!!  lol.

This card is based loosely on the totaly papercrafts challenge, Time to Party!.
The backing paper is again a freebie from a magazine.

The image is also coloured with pro markers, seems to be my medium of choice at the moment because it is so quick!

The flower are paper flowers from my stash, and the sentiment has been stamped and cut out with a  circular punch.

Hope you like it, and please leave a comment :o)

The backing paper was a freebie I had from a magazine.  Ribbons and pearls from stash

The image has been coloured with pro markers

The sentiment has been stamped using do crafts relatives stamps and sentiments sheet.

This is being entered into the lili of the valley sketch challenge.

Golfing Mad!

Well here is a card I have created for a comission.  I always worry about these and whether they will like it or not.  Hope they do!

This card is for a teenager who likes Golf, not much else to say really!
I have matted and layered blue themed backing papers with a dark blue boarder.  I then used a nestability scalloped oval die and embossed it with a dotty embossing folder and inked around the edge.

The golfer image is a Kenny K image which I have coloured with pro markers and the cup was a stamp off of the papermania onion plays football range.

The happy birthday sentiment are stamps (can't remember the name of the company at the moment but am sure it will come back to me in a minute!lol)  I have stamped Sports mad into the capital letters and then used a clear glaze on the top, then cut them out and raised them with foam pads.  Elliot has been computer generated and punched with a circular scalloped punch, then layered with 3 different papers to match the matting and layering, and a piece of black ribbon has been stapled to it to make it look like a rossette.

Hope you like it.

It Snowed, well only just! lol

So we finally had the elusive white stuff my son has been waiting for but was it worth all the excitement?  It was about half a centimeter thick and lasted all of an hour before it started melting!lol  Well at least he got to throw one snowball.

Anyway on to todays card.  This card has been designed for the new Kenny K challenge at  Think pink.  I have used one of the new Krash Kittens images 'Megan Foxy' for this challenge, and some free papers for the matting and layering. 
I have used a nestabilities die and an embossing folder which I have inked,  and used a boarder punch to make the ribbon backing. 

The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the leaves have been punched.

The sentiment has been stamped onto a nestability die and inked around the edges, and the bike charm has been hung on a chain.

The image has been coloured with promarkers.

Hope you all like it.

Freezing cold and still no snow!!

Well I think my son might be right and he is some kind of snow repelant, we still have no snow but it is cold enough to freeze your pants off outside!lol.  On to todays card, and maybe I should be thankful we have no snow for all the sensible reasons, which leads me into the challenge I am going to be entering this card into! challenge 'Thankful'
The Greeting is stamped and I have used flowers from wild orchid and puched leaves and die cut flourishes to embellish.

 This is a Greeting Farm stamped image that I coloured with pro markers.

Hope you like it.

Anyway on to today's card.  Quite appropriate for all this cold weather don't you think?  I am sure we all know someone who has gone down with a cold or some awful bug.  This image is from  Head on over and check it out they have some fabulous images for you to purchase.  I have used pro markers to colour the digi stamp.  The flower themed papers were free from a magazine.

It's Chritmas time!

Well it certainly feels cold enough to be, although we have not had the snow yet here in Sidmouth!  Maybe this will make me feel as though we have though as there is so much snow in the card!lol.  This is such a lovely stamp to work with.  The stamp is from lili of the valley so head on over as they have some beautiful designs in.(Am hoping to get some for Christmas, but I don't think Santa knows where to find my crafting goodies as I always have to buy them myself!!lol).
Any way, back to the card.   I chose the papers I was going to use first, decorated , matted and layered the card to the sketch design then coloured the image with pro markers and used glitter for the tinsel. 
I used pearl gems to embellish. and the sentiment is from papermania, which i have stamped onto a nestabilities die cut.

The snowflake has been glittered and inked.

i am entering this card into the sketch challenge 75, Winter snowflakes, untraditional colours, no reds or greens,  Let it snow Any thing goes and a bit of sparkle
