Simple cards with my new image

These are a few more cards that i made with my new image, i loved colouring these images, they have both been coloured using promarkers and new papers that i bought for my birthday.

Thanks for looking!!!

CAS - Clean and simple

I saw this challenge on one of my favorite blogs and just had to enter - http://coopsclutteredcorner.blogspot.co.uk/ this is one of the first blogs that i ever started flowing.  I love Nic's cards she posts a card pretty much every day and they are always very inspirational.  Anyway the brief is clean and simple for passion for promarkers.

Promarkers used - all grey colours, limited edition squirel, and silver metallic promarker.  I was not sure if i liked the card being so underdecorated, i love bling and layers, but that said the more that i look at the card the more i like it.

Thanks for looking!!

Farrier retirement card

This card was for a friend of mine to give to her farrier next week when he comes out to work on her horse's shoes for the last time before retiring.  She has known him for many years and will miss him loads.  I hope that he likes the card. - I had some lovely feedback today for the below card! its so nice when your cards are so well received!

Thanks for looking!!!

CLP Sketch - Birthday card

I saw this sketch on  and i thought i would give it a go with a card that i had been asked to make.  I searched for ages for an image to use and found one at Silly Dilly Beans,

I used to love painting when i was younger and i wish i had stuck with it, - that said i love colouring the images i use on my cards so that keeps me happy.

So here is my card - thanks for looking!!!!

I am entering this card into the challenge attached with the CLP sketch.I have just had a look at the entries already in and they are all so fab i dont stand a chance but great inspiration!

Saturated charity image

These cards were made using an image that was donated as a freebie with the polite request of a donation in aid of charity.  I used the image with the balloon from an a different saturated canary image. Coloured using my promarkers.

My apologies for the lack of chat in my posts - life in general and working and owning a home etc!  I love crafting and wish i couldgive more time to it.

Thanks for looking!

Male cards!!

Like a lot of people i do not find it very easy to do male cards, i stuggle with simple cards and always feel they lack something.  So when i am faced with a male card that i cannot decorate with glitter, pearls, ribbons, flowers etc!

So i did some cards which came in use the very next day as it was a work collegue's birthday, he was male, and a surfer so perfect!!

Thanks for looking! I appreciate your comments.

Happy 30th Birthday!!

Below is a 30 year old birthday card, i practiced distressing the sides (i need a lot of practice) I made the sentiment myself and got the image from Sureya from Deviantart where free images are available for people who love to colour!

Thanks for looking, i am very grateful for your comments which mean a lot to me as i know it takes time to do.

Happy 40th Birthday to me!!!!

Well I have had a great birthday today considering I was at work. I got to work with my desk covered in stars and happy birthday table confetti, a helium ballon with 40 on it for all walking past or into the office to see.  Balloons all over my monitor and sparkly ribbon. The day progressed with a handmade card from my work colleagues (my boss didnt want to give me a shop bought card!) and I had a bunch of lovely flowers from my friend at work and a huge bunch of flowers form my mother in law. I am taking the day off of work tomorrow and I am going travelling to explore new craft shops in Newton Abbot and Totnes. Huge thanks to Annette (Nettys cards) I am writing this on my phone so will  link her blog later on my lap top.
Well I give up trying to link pictures from my iPhone and don't even go there with trying to copy a web address so I can link Nettys cards blog!!!!!
