70th Birthday Card

Hey everybody

I hope you're all having a nice evening and that the weather is nice wherever you are :) I went to the cinema this evening to see What to Expect When You're Expecting, man I got emotional! Normally at the cinema it's me handing the tissues to my boyfriend to mop up his tears (haha, I'm really not joking :P) but this one really got me! I really enjoyed it.

Anyway, I came home and my neighbour (and best customer!) came straight over to ask me for a 70th birthday card for a man, so this is what I came up with.

The image is LOTV, the little sentiment tag is from a Docrafts Wellington pack of man sentiments, the button and twine are from Ribbon Girl and the papers are from the Glitz Design French Kiss paper pack.

Snowman Christmas Card

Second post for me today!

I got a parcel from Lily of the Valley from the postman this week, so I just had to use some of my new stamps! This is one of them :) The postman's going to be bringing me more LOTV stamps next week too, can't wait!

Anyway, here's my card, it was very strange colouring in a snowman when it was super sunny outside :P

The papers are from a Forever Friends pack from last year. The image and sentiment are LOTV and the ribbon and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

A closeup of this super-cute image, coloured with Promarkers and copiously decorated with Stickles...as always :P I even put in Stickle-snow falling :D

Pretty simple, but I'm happy enough with how it turned out.

Baby girl card

Evening everyone

It was soo hot here today, I loved it! Hope you all enjoyed the sun and it's not getting too much for anyone yet!

I made a couple of cards today, and here's one of them. I coloured this image in ages ago but only got round to using it now :)

The image is Bugaboo (yes, I know - all my images are Bugaboo or LOTV - but it's my birthday soon so I'm getting loads of stamps! :D), the sentiment is LOTV, the papers are from the Forever Friends New Arrival pack and from stash, and the gems and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

A closeup of my flowers, covered in Stickles 

A closeup of my image, also covered in Stickles :D I coloured it with Promarkers and it's not clear here but the moon is actually coloured in a lighter yellow than the craters but it didn't come out, it looks nicer in real life :(

So that's my card, the idea came into my head with I saw this Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch:

Red and Blue Birthday Card

Evening everyone :)

I'm up later than I wanted to be tonight, urrrggghh! I watched Beauty and the Beast and did some crafting and time just got away from me. I coloured loads of stamps in while I was watching, so much fun :D And then I made a card, so here it is :)

This is my first card using a Saturated Canary image! I really like them now :D The sentiment is LOTV, the ribbon is from Ribbon Girl, the papers are from a Forever Friends man pack and the flowers and gems are from my new delivery that the postman brought me today from Wild Orchid Crafts :D I used my MS punch for the border.

A closeup of this pretty lady, coloured with Promarkers. I put some gel pen on the dots to make them shine a bit :)

A closeup of the flowers, I think the tea rose in the middle is so pretty :)

London themed birthday card

Hey everybody :)

The sun is shining here again, so I'm going to post this then go outside with my book and get me some sun! My skin is so pale at this stage I'm fairly sure it glows in the dark. And I'm all for getting some natural Vitamin D, my poor bones could use it.

So here's my card, I hope you like it, the idea came into my head, so I got it down on paper before it melted away again.

I stamped the girl and her balloons twice, and cut one out and coloured it in, then stuck it on the other one with foam pads for a 3D effect. The image and sentiment are LOTV, I made the bunting myself and the little gem on her bow is from Wild Orchid Crafts, from whom I received my latest package today, the postman is always bewildered to find me waiting at the door to collect the post of a morning!

A closeup of the image, it's hard to tell that she's on foam pads, but she is :P I coloured her with Promarkers.

The image is from Bugaboo, the sentiment is LOTV, the ribbon and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the papers are from the Prima Meadow Lark paper pack.

A closeup of this sweet image, coloured with Promarkers. I love this image so much!

Father's Day Card

Hey everybody

I hope you all had a lovely day and had better weather than we had! The weatherman promised us sunshine and a heatwave, but no, we got clouds and rain *shakes fist* Not impressed! So naturally I stayed inside and made things instead.

Firstly, I made raspberry and white chocolate muffins, they smelled sooo good while they were baking! Here's some of them, I made 22 in total.



I also made a father's day card, I got the idea into my head, so I got it out before it went away again. So here it is!

The papers are from my stash, I can't remember what pack they came from. The button and twine came from Ribbon Girl, the image and sentiment are from LOTC and I used my MS punch for the border.

I really need to get some brown ink :-/

Hang in there

Hey everybody

Hope you're weekend is going well and that the weather in nice wherever you are! It's nice enough here thank goodness, for once! :P I love when the weather is nice for lots of obvious reasons, but one that's particularly apt for this card is: I am able to hang my washing out on the line! Then it comes back in smelling of fresh air, I just love it :D

This is another of my cards for the Irish Cancer Society shop, I wanted to use a different image for once because I've coloured in so many of the daffodil one lately! So i chose this one, it's so pretty! :) I made a somewhat Clean and Simple card too, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! :D

The image is from Bugaboo, the gems and pegs are from my stash, the twine is from Ribbon Girl and the sentiment is LOTV.


A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers, with some pink gel pen on there to make it shine a bit :)

A view from the side to get a better look at the little pegs, they actually work too, so cute! :D
