Lilli of the Valley Birthday card

This is such a gorgeous stamp and it was so easy to use.  The colour theme was taken from the free papers I have, and the sentiment was created on my computer.  The flowers are pre cut paper flowers and I have punched the leaves as another embelishment.  The centres of the flowers are pearl flat backs and the image has been stamped onto a Nestabilities lable and coloured with pro markers(which seems to be my favourite medium at the moment!).

Kenny K challenge 12

My son has a birthday party to go to this weekend so I thought I would combine this weeks sketch challenge with his friends birthday card.  The sketch was very easy to follow and I just used some polka dot paper, white and black card for matting and layering and for the flowers and leaves, and a sentiment I designed on my computer.  Hope you all like it.

My New Stampavie stamp from West point Hobby craft show

I Just love this stamp.  I saw it yesterday at Westpoint Exeter Creative craft & stitches show and I couldn't resist. (Went back to it twice before I bought it!!)  I have stamped the image with stazon and coloured with pro markers, added some gems and glitter and a snowflake charm and crystals.  Hope you like it as much as me.  This was just for me no challenges this time!!

Another card for 2 challenges!

I made this card in Fall colours for the stamp something challenge and in RED, BROWN & ORANGE for the Dustin Pike Colour challenge.  The image is a free digistamp from that I coloured with pro markers.  I also coloured the white doillie I used in the middle with coloured inks to match the papers, and the flowers and leaves are hand punched and inked with gems for the centre.

This card has been entered in the challenge and the .

A card for 2 Challenges!

Hi, is it Tuesday already?  I don't know what happened to Monday but I think i spent all day trying to put right the computer that has just come back from the doctors!   I could throw the thing out the window gladly if it didn't have all my craft downloads on it! It has come back in a new case and all of my programmes need there password keys to work and guess what.  The one key I do have is wrong and I don't know where all my others are to be able to enter them, so I have spent all yesterday and most of today trying to transfer all my things onto my old faithful laptop and I think I am nearly there.  Any way the real reason for this blog was not for me to moan but to show you the card I have made to enter into the Kenny K week 11 challenge (stitching) and the totallypapercrafts challenge  (Birthday).  Hope you all like it as it is all I have had time to do in the last 2 days and it only took me 15 minutes!!
Please feel free to comment even if it is annonymous, I would love to hear you views on this or any of my creations.
