Happy Birthday - to my best friend!!

This card is for my best friend who has her birthday next week 4 days after mine!!! Mine will be the big 40! Eeeeekkkkk! My friend Paula has different taste in cards to me and i hope she will love this card.  I went for an image that was more for a friend than a standard birthday card from the family. 
Off too bed too tired to write the details of this card, LOTV image, promarkers, WOC flowers, spellbinders die.
Thanks for looking!!!!

First day at new school

I was asked to make a card for a work collegue if i could make a card for her to give to her nephew.  I really struggle as many people do to make male cards, but she was very happy with the card today when i gave it to her.  The image was from Sassy Cheryls, stock papers i have had for a while, i decorated the card as much as i could for a male card! Coloured with promarkers.

Thanks for looking!!!

Quick card

Just a quick card that i made using a stamp i borrowed from a friend, coloured in promarkers and layered using stock papers.

Thanks for looking!!!

CPL-50 Happy Anniversary

Long time no blog post, i admire the people who's blogs i follow for posting regularly, i just get side tracked with day to day goings on and my good intentions go on the way side.

This post is a wedding anniversary present for my sister and brother in law, i used the sketch from CLP challenge blog which i spotted from Pops cards (http://popscards.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/lili-of-valley-blog-hop-with-crafting.html)  I always feel my cards lack something in comparison to the blogs i follow but nether the less i enjoy what i do and it makes me and others happy.  Hope my sister in law likes it!

Apologies for the photos i found it really hard to photograph!

Thanks for looking!

I am entering this project into the CLP challenge:

Whats another friggin candle?

I made this card for my manager at work, it was a very quickly pulled together card as she is going on holiday for her birthday week and i did not know it was her birthday!
The image is from Bugaboo, papers from old stash, coloured with promarkers and decorated with stickles and glossy accents!

Thanks for looking!!!

A birthday card for my Niece x

I love this fab freebie generously given by Krista, when i made the card below i also doubled up and made another card for my collection, my daughter is going to a birthday party on Wednesday so it has not stayed in my collection for long!!!!

This card is for my Neice as i thought her birthday was coming up rather soon.... turns out its not until November!

I just love colouring the saturated canary images!!!!!

Nephew cards

A couple of Nephew cards by request, i have used a colouring page for one of them as they are a James the engine fan. A pirate image for the other card from Mo's digital pencil Pirate Hugh.

Both Images coloured by promarkers and embelished etc.

Thanks for looking, feel my enthusiasm for card making lacking a bit at the mo, cards are not great - nor are the photos!!!
