Another Three card creations for challenges.

The first card above is for the Penny Black challenge this week it was to show some one you loved them using one of their images. So I have used this cute stamp of two little hedgehogs, its really sweet. I have used a pale lilac card for my base colour and some paper with lilac hearts on it. I have used Promarkers to colour the image in, used some lilac ribbon, lilac flowers from Flora Doodles and a sentiment from Penny Black too. To finish it off I have added some pink heart buttons and some gems.

My next card is for the Just Magnolia challenge,and it was their sketch with a Magnolia character, so I thought I may as well make a christmas card, to add to my collection. I used some Dovecraft papers onto red base card,and then used some silver and red spotty ribbon down the centre behind the image. The image is the Magnolia Santa and I have matted some silvermirri card under him and then added some white Mulberry Flowers and ice blue embellishments in the centre and a Merry Christmas sentiment to finish it off.

My final card today is for Sketch Saturday challenge, and this is my take on their sketch, again I have made another christmas card. This time I have used some beige card for my base colour and then some lovely brown christmas paper with winter words on it. Then I have punched some more beige card out into wavy circles, then put a Forever Friends stamped image on top of them, adn then added my brown spotty ribbon. I have used Coppic markers this time to colour the image in, added some brown flowers with pink flowery buttons and some pink embellishements . And finally to finish it off a christmas sentiment. Thanks for dropping by and looking at my cards.

Oops sorry made a mistake here!!!!!!

Sorry if you are looking at my blog and wondering what is going on the last post on here for today should actually appear first at the top of the page and I have got a bit confused here putting these cards on, sorry.
And finally my card for Friday Sketchers challenge and I have decided to use their sketch to make another Christmas card. I have used rich reds and browns for this card as my card and paper colours. I have stamped an image from an Alotta stamp which has two little ants warming their hands by the fire.( I thought they were bumble bees but I was wrong) Coloured them in using Coppic markers added some ribbon around the middle and added a sentiment on the bottom corner. To finish it off I have added some lovely flowers from Mulberry Street. Hope you have enjoyed looking at all my efforts, thanks for dropping by.

Here is my next card for Sketch and Stash and My Time to Craft challenges. Obviously the sketch is for the first challenge and the farm is for the next challenge. My stash I have used were some large brads which I forgot I had to thread my ribbon through and the ribbon was in a bag upstairs under my bed! I used some pretty DCWV papers and card for the base of my card a Get Well Soon sentiment and somelittle Prima flowers. The farm image is another of those lovely Kars stamps and the image is coloured in using Pro markers this time.

My Crafting Sunday!!!!

Yesterday my daughter Lindsay and I decided instead of having a day out in the bank hoilday crowds we would stay in and craft and do lots of challenges and what a great time we had and according to my youngest son made a right mess in the lounge oh well, we had a good time anyway. So here is my first card. This is my card for My Time to Craft Challenge the theme was to have a beverage in the image, so I have used a stamped image of two friends meeting for a coffee, I have added some funky paper and a couple of Prima flowers with the sentiment Ladies who lunch.

Cutie Sunday Challenge

Here is my card for Cutie Sunday Challenge. This image is one of my new Kars stamps they are so cute and I have now 4 sets of these and it's all my daughter Arlines fault as she bought me a set when I was laid up to cheer me up and now every time I see a new set I buy them! I have used all christmas time colours as I thought I would get started and try and get enough cards made this year. I have used Pro Markers to colour her in and used this lovely paper which I also found in my box from last year. I have used a couple of christmas greetings and some paper flowers on the corners. To add a bit of glitz I have put some red glitter on her ribbons and dress and some green on the holly. Thanks for dropping by.

Just Magnlolia Challenge

Here is my first challenge for Just Magnolia Challenge the theme was Friends. The base of my card is some funky large spotty card which I love but can't remember where I got it from, thats the trouble when you haven't used your stash for so long! The stamped image is the Magnolia couple just about to give each other a friendly kiss. I have added some colourful daisy chain ribbon, a large purple daisy from FloraDoodles and a lovely sentiment about friendship. Thanks for dropping by.

Sketch Saturday Challenge

This is my entry for Sketch Saturday Challenge. I have made this card for my friends daughter who will be 16 this week and it's very girly don't you think. All pinks and purples. I bought this stamp just before I had my fall so haven't used it until now, the hippo is so cute having her bath with her little duck. The zig zag paper is out of my new DKWV paper and card stack I have just purchased, with some vouchers I was given. Its yummy. I have added some self adhesive lace along the bottom and some purple gem stones and added a sentiment on it. Thanks for dropping by

Have had a revamp!

Well yesterday I did a revamp of my blog, not too sure about the colours yet but will see how it goes. I changed it to give me some inspiration to get crafting again, as I have just gone back to work after suffering a broken wrist some 16 weeks ago and haven't been able to do much up to now, especially crafting. It hasn't stopped me buying but hopefully will now be able to get round to using all my lovely new stamps and cds I purchased whilst in a plaster cast. And now I will get back to the challenges too.
