Just to let you know that I won't be posting anymore cards this week as I'm going over to Holland for a couple of days. I'm hoping to get some nice crafty things there so will have a play when I get back.
Bye for now.

Collour create challenge

Soft greens and Aqua are the colours on this weeks colour create challenge  so looking through my stash of oddments and using a freebies digi this is what I came up with.

The layout was the Sketch and Stash challenge 34 only I turned it 90degrees.
The image I've used felt pens, promarkers for his face and hair and sacura for the flowers. I've chalked the background blue to tone it in with the picture.The background I printed from Sue Smiths plaid cd then mounted onto card from my stash. I've punched another strip of "bitty paper from my bitty box" and wrapped ribbon over it.
To finish off I've glittered the edges and add some jewells and a glittered flower.

I was asked to make a football card for a 70 year old but didn't know his teams colours so fingers crossed I haven't offended him!!!
The image again is one from Cuddly Buddy as is the backing paper.
I've just used mirri card for the first mount but did the side step card for a change as I like this style.

Sketch Saturday

Sorry I've not been around for the past couple of days but we are having major work done in the garden.
Anyway I spotted this sketch over on Sketch Saturday and used a digi image from Cuddly Buddy.
The papers are from a folder of scrap paper I have in a folder.
I used water colour pencils and felt pens to colour the image.
I've used a punch along one strip and stamped to animals onto circles then finished of with some glitter round the edges.
Thankyou for looking.

Mothers 80th

My latest card isn't a challenge but I thought I would still share it with you.
My Mum is 80 along with my God-mum so I had to make a card each from me then one for my God-Mum from my Mum, so I had to come up with different ideas.
Hope you like this.

This is an A4 card already foiled around the edges. I've used a decoupage I had and then sprayed it with glaze to give it a shine and glittered the centre of the flowers.
I've mounted it onto gold mesh put some ribbon from my stash behind then onto green card that has also been glittered.

I've added a dotty border along the bottom then finished off with rose buds that I have also added glitter to.
Thankyou for looking.

Whiff of Joy

This was supposed to be my entry for this weeks challenge on Whiff of Joy but I put the ribbon too far down and couldn't get the text in the right place.
I printed the swirl from one of my cd's then added gems to it.
The pattern paper was a freebie in a magazine I've had for a long time.
The image I have coated with Glossy accents.
I've added ribbon across the bottom then mounted the greeting over it.

God- Mother

For this card I took the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge.
The card is from my stash and I printed the plaid from a Sue Smith cd.
The stamp image is Popcorn the Bear colloured with pro makers and sacura pens.
I've added glitter around the edges and added a few gems for a bit of bling.

Special Friend

This is my first attempt at blogging and posting a picture of my cards so fingers crossed.
I saw a layout like this and made my own version using a digital image.
The papers are from my stock that I have either bought or printed from a cd.
I have glittered the edges added a few games and flowers. The image I used pro-markers for the first time.
Thankyou for looking.
