Star Shaped Card ..


Hope you're all having a fab weekend!

Here's my latest card - it was for my niece Molly on her 10th birthday.  I found a tutorial here and though to myself "that looks easy!". Let's just say it took longer than I thought it would - which I'm sure is more down to my lack of brains than anything else.  As always the picture is rubbish as I finished it late and it needed to go off in the post the next day!

Above is the card as you see it when it's opened out, (before I added the image), and below is the folded card.  I think it looks pretty swish even if I do say so myself.  I may make a few more of these for Christmas. The image is from Pollycraft.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Tuesday Throwdown - Think Pink
Crafty Creations - 3, 2, 1 (Three papers - the third is just just under the pink panel in the centre, 2 embellis - the ribbon and the little gems, and 1 image)
Lexis Creations - Pink for Boobies
Little Miss Muffet - Girly Girl
Di's Digital Designs - Girly Creations
The Stamping Boutique - Think Pink
Crafty Cardmakers - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Get in Shape - my three shapes are the star, triangle and the wonky rectangle which a quick search on the net tells me is aIsosceles Trapezoid (you learn something everyday!)

Anyway - thanks for looking!!

Happy Sunday!  Today I've got a Halloween card to share with you all.  I bought loads of black colour core card ages ago (in about a thousand different colours!) but I've not really done anything with it yet!

After some serious sand paper action this black / green card looks great!  Plus I took a trip to one of my local craft shops yesterday for some things for a birthday card and just after I had handed over my life savings to pay for my "one or two" bits I spotted this amazing black spiders web/holey tights/ripped ribbon on a shelf and I just had to get some.

The cute Frankenstein guy is a freebie from The Stamping Boutique - how cute is he?

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes & Ribbon
Tuesday Throwdown - Halloween
One Stop Craft Challenge - Anything Goes

Pink Christmas

Happy Weekend!

I read somewhere the other day there is only 78 days till Christmas which sounded a bit close for comfort - but I've just checked and by reckoning there is only 73 - how has that happened?

So here is my latest Christmas card:

What my crappy photography doesn't show up is the fact I may have caused a world shortage of glitter!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Sparkle and Bling
Jingle Belles - Pink Christmas
Bah Humbug - Glitter and Glitz
Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes as long as it Sparkles
Crafty Cardmarkers - Anything Goes

Bunny Zoe - Sketch

Hope you all had a fab weekend!

Here is my latest card, I've used a My Grafico digi that I won a while back.  Isn't this Dino cute?!  I've used some glossy accents on his belly and teeth to make them nice and smooth and shiny.

I don't seem to make many cards for the guys - I think I've made 6 this year, which is pretty rubbish!  I was going to make a sentiment for this on my computer but the printer has run out of ink and printed the last batch of digi stamps I printed out in blue instead of black -which is annoying.

Anyway I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Cuddly Buddly - For Children
One Stop Craft Challenge - Just For Men
Little Miss Muffet - Animals and Monsters
St Luke's Challenge - Let's Hear it for the Boys

Thanks for Looking

A Birthday Card


It feels like ages since I last posted or made a card.  A month seems to have flown by somehow!  I've also been really rubbish at commenting on everyone's beautiful blogs - but I'll be getting back on track over the next day or two!

Here is my latest card - my attempt at a shabby / vintage type - well the papers are called Vintage ... something .. so it must be right.  They are Pink Petticoat and were a magazine freebie. The dress was also a freebie from Michelle Perkett Studio - it's so cute!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Say Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes
Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes
Auds Sentiments - Happy Birthday
Southern Girls - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking!
