Door signs for my girls

I had been clearing out and tidying my craft stash (not for the first time in the last few weeks) i do not enjoy making christmas cards (not sure why but i really struggle with them).  So when i found some spare pages from a chipboard book that i had not used i decided to make some door plaques for my daughters rooms. 

I used a Saturated canary image for one of my daughters and Wryn from tiddly inks for the other daughter and coloured them with their looks in mind.  I decorated with flowers, crown pins & filgree corners from Wild Orchid Crafts, and some beads and butterflys from ebay. 

 Thanks for looking!!!

Christening card - Very pic heavy!

My christening card for one of my adorable neices, i had to add a section to the card box base so that the doily didn't get bent/squashed during transport! I used pearlescent paper but the pictures have not shown the pink distress ink very well - it almost looks grey! I loved the layout of this card though - they take me ages but i do love the end results! This card is safely packed away in a keepsake box until Torrie is older.

 Thanks for looking!

Birthday card using my latest purchase from Mo!

My adorable neice wears glasses and i just could not resist buying this image when i saw someone else use it (i would give them credit but i don't have a clue where i saw it used!!).  I prefer the brown coloured card but i think my neice is more of a pink girly!

Thanks for looking!

Ekkkk! seriously dodgy photo's!!!

Storming through the posts tonight! 

A commissioned card for a 1st birthday, with some not very good photo's!

Thanks for looking!

Lovely card - rubbish pictures!

This card was for my neice - if i remember correctly it was for my mother in law - when i cant post a card straight away i forget to put them on my blog! it doesn't look much but it took me forever to do!

Thanks for looking!

60th Birthday card

Love this image from Mo's digital pencil, coloured with promarkers and pearl drops!

Thanks for looking!

I cant believe its been a whole year since the last time i forgot your birthday!

Its been far too long since i blogged!

I am doing my best to work on all birthday cards needed this year, so that i can fully concentrate on Christmas cards! This card is using a Saturated canary image and a freebie sentiment from TLC.  Coloured with Pro-markers, hidden under the ribbon is a heart with a small gem in it, its a first for me - its made from air dry clay.  I wasn't 100% happy with it hense the hiding it under ribbon!

Thanks for looking!

Just because......

I have had this image for a while but forgot all about it so i coloured up with some neutral promarkers and made into a card.

TLC sentiment (she really does do the best sentiments!).

Thanks for looking!


Sat canary freebie for purchases!

This card was made using an image that i received as a freebie for buying images from Kristas shop last weekend.  It was no hardship to pick some images to buy, just hard deciding which one to colour up first!

I used papers that i swapped on a craft swap site and kept it nice and simple as i just loved the image so much i did not want to loose the fabulously slim girl on the card!

Coloured with pro-markers and glittered up with stickles. TLC sentiment.

Thanks for looking!!!

Happy 1st Birthday

This card is for a little girls who's 1st birthday is coming up very soon, thinking about it i had better get a present ready and get this one in the post!!

Its a Sassy Cheryl image coloured with promarkers and layered a few times.  I made this card a while ago, and i am not overly happy with it tbh.

Thanks for looking!!!

Take a deep breath and let it go

What a sentiment from TLC, if only i found it so easy to let things go!

I love the colours of this card and i have stamped around the image and used distress inks which i have seen done a few times lately and thought i would give it a go.  I think i will be doing it again.  I really like this card, think i will have to keep it in my collection for a while before i send it to someone.

Thanks for looking!!!

I wish for you HUGS when spirits sag

No matter how hard i try i never feel there is quite enough to my cards, i am sure i could layer them forever and I would still not be satisfied.  I think it is because i am using large cards (8" x 8") and as do not have any boxes this size and to make them i would need larger than A4 card which i do not have in sturdy card, i have not been putting flowers on them. 

I must be having WOC withdrawal symptoms!!!!!

Thanks for looking!!

Young at heart.....

A commissioned card for a work colleague, i know the person who the card was for but do not know anything about her eg likes/dislikes, so i tried to go for a neutral card and image - fingers crossed she likes it!

Husbands Birthday Card

My husbands birthday is in May and i have had his card made for some time now, (i have gone through all of the birthdays on my calender and made cards for the next few months) I know that he will like it but it will probably have to be displayed in our bedroom as its not really one for the mother in law to see when she pops round to wish her son a happy birthday!

The image is from Jade Dragonne and i coloured her up in promarkers.

Thank you for looking - for the few that look and comment i am very grateful!

Happy Birthday x 2 (Male & Female)

These cards are for a female friend of mine and my Dad.  I often struggle when i need to do a card for someone that i know as i feel pressure to come up with an image that is suited to them.  I saw this image on   Kimberly Brown 's Youtube video ( http://www.justwordz.ca/ ), i love her tutorials and always tune in when i get notified that there is a new post!  Anyho.... Kimberly used this image and i just had to buy it as i can see that it is going to be a fav of mine for last minute cards that i need to rustle up.

So i made 2 plain cards as i felt that the image should speak for itself on these cards!

Thank you for looking!

Jade Dragonne & TLC

I just love this image by jade dragonne she can be found on Deviant art and facebook, and this is one of my favorite ones.  I coloured up the image with promarkers as always and mounted onto an easel card.  I thought that the TLC  sentiment went perfect with this image so i coloured with some distress inks and used on the card.

Thanks for looking!!!!

Happy 7th Birthday to my daughter

OMG! I cant believe that my daughter is 7 today! I still remember the day i had her like it was yesterday.  My daughter Chloe is like a little monkey and always hanging upside down on bars and swinging upside down! I just couldnt resist this image when i saw it, coloured with pro-markers and layered up with 7 gems!

Thanks for looking! x

Animal 40!!!

 The following card is a commissioned card that i made for a friend.

Wedding Card

A clean and simple card for a work colleague who is getting married on Friday, I really struggled with this card as I was asked not to use a coloured image on the card which left me lost with no center piece, so I made the sentiment the main feature of the card with some WOC flowers on the side, I have actually made a mistake as it was poor light so there is an ivory crown pin and a white one!! My work mates laughed at me when I stressed over it, but I like to do things right! Nether the less it is not getting changed now.  I made a box using a simple die from spellbinders which I cut AND embossed!!!!!

I have only just discovered the art of embossing with my big shot.  I bough some tan embossing pads and could not work out how to use them at all but recently had a crafting friend come round to my house for a cuppa and I asked her if she could work it out! Now I am seeing all of my dies in a new light as now I can enhance the die cuts even more!

 Thanks for looking!!!

Mothers day cards!

Here are 2 mothers day cards that i have done, both the same but i have done one for a friend who has blonde hair.  Coloured with pro-markers as ever and a little touch of sparkle on the flowers.

Valentines & a voucher book!

I saw a video from Saturated Canary  and just had to use the idea within a card, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YTIyeWXrLw 

Kept playing with the hair on this image and was not happy at all with the result - i was having an off day with my promarkers!
