Lots made....

....over the last week considering its not been a good week. Unfortunately my son has been sick from school for 4 days so my time has been spent with him. The cards Ive managed to make are:-

 I made this card previously as a Christmas one but this time I've adapted it for an anniversary. The pic is from Debbie Moore's Glitter and Glitz CD. Ive added a ribbon coloured pale blue with Promarkers and put stickles around the outline. I finished with some Glamour Dust on the dress to add more sparkle.
 This next card is fairly quick to do. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots on white card then cut into 3. I glittered with stickles around the edges to make it stand out a little bit. I added a scalloped circle in red and a white circle embossed again with dots then placed a Santa digi coloured with Promarkers. The ribbon was coloured and a greeting added to finish. There's some sparkle also added to Santa's hat!
 This card is similar to the above but I used green ribbon and green stickles and the backing card was cut into 4.
This card is along a similar line but I used a snowflake embossing board for the background and Swiss Dots for the circle. I edged the backing in silver stickles.
This card is by far my favourite from the last week. The backing paper is Kay & Co. The image is one of Mo's Digital, coloured with Promarkers, flowers are from my stash and Ive used card candy in the centres. I stamped the numbers onto some of the spare backing paper, mounted onto brown card and cut out and then edged in gold stickles. I also edged the whole card and the image in gold.

I am in the process of another gorgeous card for a very special friend of mine on her birthday this week but I wont be able to post until after Wednesday!!! Cant wait for her to see it.

Thanks for looking, sorry there are so many pics but hope you are still awake!!!

Happy crafting, please comment if you feel you need to!!

the latest.... I've done.
 This first one I couldn't post last week as it was my competition entry at the local crop we went to Saturday and it was hush hush!! The topic this month was button and bows. I used a LOTV xmas stamp coloured with promarkers and then used various buttons and ribbon from my stash. Unfortunately it wasnt the winning one but it was the taking part that counts. Next month it needs to be a nursery rhyme so the thinking cap is on!!!

These next 2 cards I made whilst at the crop. I used a crealies template which can be found here My friend Eileen got me started on these and now Im getting carried away! The images are digis from Kenny K coloured with Promarkers. The snowflakes are punched using a free punch from this month's Papercraft Inspirations magazine.

These last card is a LOTV stamp. I coloured it with Promarkers and added some glitter to finish. I used some papers from my stash with a Craftwork Cards patchwork template which I bought at the Alexander Palace Stamp Show.

Thank you for looking and please make any comments you wish to.

I won!!!

Just a quick note before I go and attempt to make some cards today. I won the Remembrance Day card craft event on Facebook this week!! Never won anything like that before so really pleased. It was the poppy card that I made last week at Eileen's. Weather is wet here so staying in to craft. Will be back later xx

Finally, the second card I made whilst crafting with Eileen on Thursday. The template used is for a circular card but I decided to put this on a square one and add some little extras!! The image is from Kenny K, the flowers are from Wild Orchid and the fancy papers are from Docrafts. Once I'd layered all the circular sections I used my Stickles to give a bit of bling around the edges.
Hope you like this, I think I need to make another one now!

This is the card I managed to make today whilst having a crafty day with Eileen. We always do too much talking and drinking of tea and dont have much to show but we do have a thoroughly good time. Eileen is such a darling that she even got in some gluten free goodies today which I could eat whilst I crafted!!!! Very much appreciated Eileen and a lovely gesture.

The image is from Just Inklined and I coloured in using my Promarkers. The backing paper is from my stash, white organza ribbon coloured with Promarkers and card candy.
Thanks for stopping by. I have another card half made so will get that on here in the next couple of days.
Bye for now

Please take a look at the Going Buggy  blog. They are giving away a FULL SET of Promarkers. Register and link to your blog for a chance to win.

Cant stop.....

...doing all the sorting out at the mo!! Have had another day of trying to organise craft stuff and have been really ruthless and cleared loads of bits that I no longer use. I've kept hold of it each time thinking I will use it but still havent. I posted lots of pics in my Facebook album tonight and 90% of it looks like selling, just waiting on confirmation at this moment.
Tomorrow I'm going to make up for it tho as Im having another day with Eileen or 'The Missus' as she is known to Daisy. Please take a look at Daisy's blog if you havent done so already. She really gets up to mischief sometimes and the pics that OTL (Old Two Legs) takes of her are just great! Daisy tends to steer clear of us whilst we craft, probably afraid of getting covered in glitter or stuck to something!!! Anyway hopefully a card to post tomoro if things go to plan so please come back and have a peek!!
Bye for now, happy crafting.

Blog Candy

Please take a look at this wonderful blog candy that Jak Heath is giving away. 4 gorgeous stamps (this one on the left is included). Her cards are lovely and it is a blog that is definitely worth following. Leave a comment on her blog and link it to your blog for a chance of winning.

Couldn't resist....

posting this card tonight, didnt want to wait til tomorrow. It is still drying but just wanted you all to see it as I love it. I have used Papermania backing papers, Bodacious Bev digi stamp from Kenny K, which I added a xmas hat to from their accessories set, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, snowflakes and scroll cut from Cuttlebug die, ribbon coloured with Promarkers and some Glamour Dust.

Here's 2....

...of the latest cards I've managed to get done. The images are from Debbie Moore's Art Deco Majestic CD along with the backing paper. I added gold stickles onto the red card and ribbon coloured with Promarkers and on the blue card I used my Glue Pen to add Glamour Dust as this gave a bit of a shine and you could still see the blue line through the glitter. I added white ribbon to finish but thinking about it afterwards I may just colour this light blue with Promarkers! I've had lots on over the last couple of weeks so cardmaking has not always been possible.
I spent a lovely day yesterday with a good crafty friend of mine Eileen. Lots of chatting and cups of coffee consumed whilst I was preparing to assemble a card!   Eileen insisted I show her how to download a digital stamp from Kenny K after she bought one and then she found lots of flowers she liked on Wild Orchid Crafts so I think she ended up spending her CUP commission for last month!!! She was also preparing a tutorial about brayering for her blog so please pop over and take a look. Her work is lovely.
Im in the process of finishing off the card I was assembling so will post tomorrow all being well.
Thank you for stopping by today, please leave any comments.
