Just saying hello

Hello friends how was your weekend? I hope you all managed to have some fun and relax. We had a really rainy weekend and I am missing the sun already. I had so much to do over the weekend and didn't get much done at all I need to be more organized :) but I will blame that on the miserable rain ha ha!

I made this card today for the crafty cardmakers challenge and I used my cameo to cut this cute ladybird out along with the sun , clouds and grass. I thought it may put a smile on someones face :)

I also ran the grass die cut  through a chevron embossing folder to give it some texture. After adding a flower and stamping the greeting the card is finished.

You can enter the challenge here.



Thank you so much for popping by today I will be visiting all your wonderful blogs over the next few days. Have a great Monday!

Dad's TV card


Hello crafty people, I hope you all had a good week. I can't believe Easter is just around the corner! I hope you all have a great time celebrating. I think it's going to be sunny here which will be great.

I made this card today for my dad, I always find men cards a bit of a challenge but I found this cute TV from birdie brown and knew he would love it. I used my derwent pencils to colour him in and a paper smooches stamp for the greeting.

I used some washi tape to put along the bottom and finished the card off with some thickers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge:
sister act card challenge

Miss you


Hello my lovelies I hope your all having a relaxing Sunday. I was child free this afternoon so I thought the best way to spend my time was to craft :) I have to say the house has been so quiet and peaceful, it feels odd he he.

I made this card for the my favorite things sketch challenge which you can find here. I colored the stamp in with my promarkers and added some stitching and to finish I added the button.

 


Thank you all so much for popping by I will be visiting your fab blogs very soon. I hope you all have a great day and if it's sunny near you enjoy the weather. Looks like we are in for a nice week.

explore the world


Good morning friends, I hope you are all having a nice start to the weekend.

I made this card last night for the fussy and fancy Friday challenge and the theme was travel. You can find the challenge right here if you fancy a go :) I used some papermania travel papers, the stamp is by October afternoon. I colored her in with my inktense pencils and I hand stitched around the edges.

 I love making travel cards, I think they must be one of my favorite themes :)

I really enjoyed working off a sketch, I don't usually use sketches but I will in future :)

How sweet is the nurse? I am in love with these images they are just the cutest! I used my inktense pencils to color her in, and I also hand stitched the green paper (Kaiserkraft) around the edges. I used a polkadot embossing folder and finished off with a paper smooches stamp.
