for Alice's first day at school

This card is for the little girl next door who is starting school on wednesday, i made her sister a note book and her a card. Lovely image by Mo Manning, colored with promarkers, all the embellishments were off a pack i got from the £1 shop. The card is from craftwork cards. I will probably not be entering many cards at moment, have just come out of hospital after major surgery but was determined to get the card and notebook done for the girls starting school.

Bee Happy






A sweet image again from Sherri Baldy at Besties, i am not sure what she is called as all i could find was a image number. The background is actually vellum which i found in my hidden stash. Teamed up with squares cut from Nestabilities, i used one piece of cut which was already embossed, i thought it would add texture. Colored with promarkers, grass and fence die cuts, edges distressed with distress ink and to finish off two little wooden bugs.

Besties wedding


This image is one of Sherri Baldy,s Besties wedding images. I have made this card for a friend's daughter who is getting married in October. I have tried all ways but could not get any better a photograph, it just does not show all the true colors. I used distress inks around edges of layers and on the hearts. The image i colored with promarkers then cut out so i could put some shaping into her dress. . The flowers and pearls i bought from Dainty supplies at washington tyne and wear.

Wendy and Waggs




Another lovely image by Sherri Baldy the Besties range, they are all so cute you just want them all. I cannot believe how cardmaking has progressed over the years, i have been cardmaking and crafting at least 37 years. I always did decoupage but as my eyes deteriorated cutting out impossible and the ever rising prices for mailing. So having moved away from layers it all seems to have turned around an we all seem to be adding gorgeous flowers plus a quick course on how to make boxes to put them in. Well the gorgeous flowers i picked up from Hobbycraft, the papers are by Nancy Watt, sentiment and card from craftwork cards, lace butterfly and pearls from Dainty supplies washington tyne and wear. colored in with my beloved promarkers, i cannot believe i had them over 6 months and couldn't pluck up courage to use them, i mightn't be that good but i find it really relaxing. I followed a sketch from passion for promarkers. i love using pearls
