TOWIE Card!!

Good morning all, what a lovely morning it is, the sun is shining (at the mo) so hopefully it will stay nice.
The card I have for you today was made for my friend's daughter. She is mad on The Only Way is Essex programme so that was the theme I had to work with. I found some pics on Google and edited them into a Word document by putting them in a circle template which was the right size for one of my new Nesties. I mounted onto the nestie and then put this onto some paper from my stash. I finished off as usual with some card candy, some organza ribbon (coloured with Promarkers) and a little Stickles! The greeting was also computer generated, cut out then mounted onto another nestie die cut.
I hope you like this. Happy crafting, please visit again soon as I have lots of cards on the production line which I'd love to show you.

Kenny K Skateboard Boy

Good morning all, what a flipping miserable day it is today. Just thought I'd post another card I made at the crop Saturday before I go off and start another one. Only got a little craft time today as unfortunately I will be going to a funeral later of one of my friends from another craft group I go to :(
The card I am showing is made with another Kenny K image, this time a skateboard boy. I coloured him with my Promarkers and cut out using a fancy nestie shape then mat and layered onto papers from my stash and a square scalloped card. I finished off by adding some star nesties (which I also embossed to make them look better thanks to a little advice from our dear crop leader!!) and added a star brad to the centre of them. I cut the numbers out using the 'Olivia' numbers on the Cuttlebug.

I hope you like this card. Please feel free to leave a comment as I do read them all and I hope you visit again soon. Happy crafting everyone.

Kenny K Valentine

Hi all, well I had a fab time at our crop (Allhallows Croppers) on Saturday and managed to get 4 cards complete. The first one I can post at the mo is this lovely Valentine image from Kenny K.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and then mat and layered on some papers from my stash. I used a Martha Stewart heart border punch for the sides. This is a 6x6 scalloped card which I love doing at the mo.

Hope you like this, please visit  again soon.

Scrapbook Sisters Hand!

Hi all, as promised here is the next card...
This beautiful hand image is a digi designed by Gayle Bond for Scrapbook Sisters. I have been waiting for it for ages and was so glad to finally buy it from their online shop. I coloured the image, mounted it and then cut around the edges. I finished off by adding some Art Institute Glitter to the nails. The first card had to be pink of course but I will be making another as there are so many glitters in my pot to be used!!!! I added some papers to the inside of the card and finished off with some gems.

I hope you like this and please come back again tomorrow for another amazing card (which I'm scheduling now!!!)
Bye for now.....

Kenny K Golfer

Hi all, Happy New Year to you all.  Sorry for the delay but I've been busy being creative!! Today I'm posting the first card I made in 2012.
I've used a golfer image from Kenny K and coloured with Promarkers. As usual I mat and layered using papers from my stash. I added organza ribbon and a 'Just for You' charm and finished off with some Stickles. (I do like my glitter!!) 
I also decorated the inside of the card to match the front.

When colouring the image I also used some Polychromos pencils which I was very lucky to receive for xmas. I need to practice a little with these but will hopefully get the hang of them after a few more tries!
Here are some other craft goodies which Santa bought me.....
.....and these are some items I bought with some xmas money. Now I've got so many bits to experiment with I need to get ahead and make some cards lol.
Anyway thanks for dropping by today, please come back tomorrow to see the next card. (I'm writing the post now and scheduling it for tomorrow so it will definitely be here!!)
