thought I would post again today although I have no new cards to show. I only seem to blog about cards so thought I would drop a line about something different today. We have been out and about today as it wasnt very bright and just so happened to stop at 3 craft shops near Ashford, Kent. I was very good and only bought a couple of little things, it was just nice to go somewhere different for a change and see some things in the flesh that I've only seen in magazines. Tomorrow we are off to London and will be having a trip on the London Eye. I'm hoping that the skies are clear so we get a good view around. Will post some pics on here for you all to see. Seeing lots of lovely cards on all of the blogs I am following but I am still needing to get lots of male cards made, just looking for some ideas!!! Bye for now, happy crafting xxx

These are some of my latest creations which I made at the crop on Saturday. The image is from Kenny K and I think they are just right for trendy teens.

I made this card for friend of mine after he passed his driving test last wk. The pics were found on google and as usual I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and card candy. It has been personalised with his name and the date he passed.

Still got lots of cards to make so its keeping me busy. My daughter did me a wonderful favour today of sitting die cutting some scalloped oval shapes out of my scrap papers. So much paper I have filling boxes up that I need a good sort out. She really is a darling and it is much appreciated.

I Won!!!

Woop woop, how exciting. Tonight I visited the Just Inklined website to see if there was anything new on there and was surprised to see that I had won a spot prize for being a follower. The prize is a digi stamp.
Im also going to enter on Karens Diva Gallery again this week. They always get either 5 or 9 entries so fingers crossed for this week!!


Well here are my latest efforts!!! This first image for a male card is from Kenny K Downloads.

I had a bit of difficulty trying to sort out what to do for these next 2 cards. I was asked for 2 new home cards and to do whatever I thought suitable. The letters are stamps from Dimension Fourth and the pictures I found on Google. I was quite pleased with them by the time I had finished!

This flower image is from Justinklined. I made 6 of these cards all in different colours. The ribbon is also coloured with Promarkers.

My friend asked me to make a birthday card for her dad with Koi on it. Again I struggled a little but did find these digital image stamps which I then coloured with Promarkers.

This next card was made as a keepsake book for my friend's nan. It includes a selection of 8 photos.

Finally this card is another Kenny K image. It was made for my daughter's friend who attends craft events with us. I hope she likes it!!

do other people manage to find time to make cards and enter them in challenges, take pictures of their cards, do entries on their blog and also do all the other everyday household chores because I just cannot manage it all!! It has taken me all day today to make a booklet card plus another simple card and Ive just managed to take some pics of them. I havent got time tonight to upload them here as Im up early for work tomoro (5.30am) so will hopefully do it tomoro once home from work. Also I have gone without tea tonight and have not had my children around all day so why o why can I not manage it. Any tips would be gratefully received if there is anyone out there that manages it all!!!!

It just had to be men.....

cards that I made this time. All the ones in my box are female orientated and everyone keeps asking for male ones so have made a start with some. Not sure where I got this pic but it was a freebie digi stamp. I coloured it with Promarkers then blended the white card with chalks.

This next pic was a freebie again from Kenny K digi stamps. I used purple in the papers and embellishments as boys are tending to wear pink and purple more often these days. Please let me know what you think!!!

This was my freebie football boy again coloured in blue and using card candy instead of buttons.

The flower image is from Just Inklined and I added a friend verse beside it. These cards are for my friend's mum to send to her friends so I made them in different colours. The ribbon at the corner is coloured with Promarkers.

This card is for an engagement. The floral papers are from Hot Off The Press and the image is Mikey from Charmed Cards and Craft digi stamps.
This final card is for my friend's mum. I love this image of Peonys and found a lovely Mother verse to put beside it. I changed the letters at the beginning of each line to match the colour of the flowers.
I now have quite a few special cards to make so that will keep me busy for a few days along with going out for days with my two children. Hope the weather is nice for you all and the heat isnt putting a stop to your crafting. Thanks for looking.
PS. I have entered a card on the Featured Diva section of Karens Doodles this week so please keep your fingers crossed for me xx
