Mo's Pencil - Barbeque image

A male belated birthday card - not keen on male cards as i find them very hard to do!  Coloured with promarkers and image from Mo's pencils.

Thanks for looking!!!!!

Thank you!

Another quick card in a bid to use my coloured images, i just love this image! I have to admit i was not too keen on the images when i first saw them but after buying one and colouring it in with my promarkers "I LOVE IT"  it was an absolute pleasure to colour with the bold lines making a real impact on thier own and colouring to compliment the image. 

Thanks for looking!!!!

Hot diggity dog

I have had this image coloured for some time now,  but had not made it into a card.   I decided in an effort to tidy up my craft bits i would make cards with the images i have already coloured with promarkers.

The image was stamped from hot diggity dog range, mounted and layered up.

Thanks for looking!!!!!

My Godaughters card

My husband and i have been asked to be Godparents to my best friends daughter, we were very proud and happy to be asked.  I have made the following card for Fiona, we have selected a silver necklace from a local jewelry maker - Kit Heath, the pendant is a butterfly and so i used butterflys on her card to try and tie the theme together.  I tried to put a lot of detail on this card as i am hoping it is a card that is kept for when Fiona is older.

The image is Saturated Canary and the butterfly and florish die is from Memory Box, the flowers and  pins from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The image was coloured with promarkers and the Sentiment was decorated with liquid pearls.  I am not very good with these and they have come out very spikey.  I have been given advice from Pops for resolving this by being less heavy handed so i will remember this for the future!

Thank you for taking the time to look - i am very grateful for all views and comments left x

Thank you!!!

Thank you to the 3 young girls who help out at the Rainbow (like brownies but for 5-7 year olds) unit i have been attending and recently leading.  Since going to Rainbows there has been 3 young helpers who for the last few weeks i would of been lost without! They have been a huge support as i would of broken down and given up if it were not for them.  I am hoping that they come back in September and continue to help, but one of the girls will definetly be leaving to go to university.

So far i have done 2 cards for the 2 girls who are not going into further education at this time.  I am half way through a good luck card for Katherine who is going to Uni.  But here are the cards that i have done so far for Emma and Charlotte to say thank you for giving up an hour of thier time every week to help out.

The images are both from saturated canary and coloured with promarkers, decorated with pearls and flowers from WOC.

Thanks for looking!!!

Happy 18th Male card

Ewwww i find it sooooo hard to make male cards, i feel the need to use a fishing image or a toolbox - other than that i am lost!

I made this card using an image i found of a porshe, coloured with promarkers and added a few layers to try and give it a bit of dimension.  As it was for an 18 year old thought it needed to have some bling so i glittered up the number 18.

Thanks for looking means a lot!!!
