Baby Bundle

Good Evening if there are any followers left out there. I've not abandoned my blog completely but  my mojo has somewhat disappeared like "a fart in a mist" lol.

A few of my lovely friends are currently pregnant and I'm low on Baby Cards, so thought I'd better get round to making some for when the stork starts circling. None of them know what they are having (want to be surprised - think I would too) so I need to stockpile girl and boy cards and possibly one or two twins, you never know (that would be a really big surprise).

I have used the following to make this card:

Lili Of The Valley Stamp.
Flower from The Ribbon Girl,
Gems from Quixotic Paperie,
Promarkers: Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon,Pale Blue, Powder Blue, China Blue, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg Blue, Blush, Dusky Pink and Sunkissed Pink.
Oval Nesties,
Cuttle Bug Embossing Folder Sentiment.
Papers are all scraps.

Anyway thank you for looking if you get the chance.

Fields Of Gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley.

You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we walk in fields of gold.

So she took her love for to gaze awhile upon the fields of barley.

In his arms she fell as her hair came down among the fields of gold.

No card from me for the foreseeable as I'm making the most of the good weather. Catch up with you all soon :) .

Sketch Saturday Challenge

Good Afternoon,

I've finally gotten round to making a new card for the "Sketch Saturday" challenge. The papers are a mixture of "Craft Creations" and "Basic Grey". They have been distressed with scissors and with white ink.

I have used these 2 adorable "Tildas" from "Magnolia Stamps" and coloured them with promarkers: Tea Green, Green Grey, Ivory, Primrose, Pastel Yellow, Ice Grey 1,2,3, Blush, Dusky Pink, Sunkissed Pink, Cool Grey 4, 5, Black, Blossom, Baby Pink and Rose Pink.

I have attached the "Tilda's" with foam pads for depth. The sentiment stamp is by "Penny Black" and the gems are from my stash.

I have also added some hand doodling to the card.

Thanks for looking.

Footabulous Birthday

Evening all,

Just a quick share today, another card that I was asked to make for my Uncle's birthday last week. He is a fan of football so that was the theme for this card.  I used my "Flippin Football" stamp and distressed him with crackle glaze.

The papers are old and I'm not sure of the names.

The footballer was coloured with my promarkers and attached to both the front and inside of the card with foam pads to add a little depth.

Sorry it's a short post, hope to be back tomorrow.

Thanks For looking :).

Afternoon all,
Sorry I've not blogged in a while, been super busy dot com . Anyway I was asked to make this card for my Uncle who is 70 on Wednesday. I used this gorgeous "Lili Of The Valley" stamp as it's so versatile.

The image was coloured with my promarkers: Shale, Umber, Cinnamon, Caramel, Tan, Cocoa, Olive Green, Marsh Green, Powder Blue, Blue Pearl, Aqua Blue, Satin, Blush, Dusky Pink, Duck Egg Blue, Cool Grey 1 and 2. The image was cut out with my "Oval Nesties" and the edges were distressed with scissors.

The design papers are quite old and are by "Crate Paper", the sentiment stamp is also by "Lili Of The Valley" and has been personalised slightly and attached with foam pads.

I made a gift box to match the card and lined this with tissue paper. The sentiment on the front of the box is also "Lili Of The Valley". Buttons, ribbon and glitter from my stash.

Thanks for looking.
