Fairy Princess

This cutie image is from Polly craft who i have just discovered, their images are just so cute, i thought as October is for breast cancer i would go with the theme of pink, my granddaughters favorite color.. I have colored with promarkers, used cosmic shimmer glitter on her wings, socks frill of her dress and wand. The cut out border is a Martha Stewart one and the fern is a punch. The roses are from Dainty supplies as was the heart buckle on the bow. Gems from hobby-craft. Backing papers are from Nancy Watt and hunkydory. The little frog is actually off a whimsy digi stamp. Finally finished off with a princess crown charm. The sketch i followed is from sketchy colors

Game on

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend, the weather has been lovely, foggy to start with then glorious sunshine, long may it last.
The image on the card is by Mo Manning called game on 2. I have tried to keep very simple and not to much fuss as the card is for my oldest son from his brother. I decided to give the sewing machine an airing only to get frustrated when the spool ran out which i had to re load then problems trying to thread the needle, now i know why it doesn't come out very often. The backing papers are from Nancy Watt but the striped card is a Dawn Bibby design from Kanban. Coloured with promarkers. Buttons from craftroom stash. Nailheads are from Mark Richards. And finally i followed a sketch from Sweet Sunday.

Patchwork Pattie tag





This is my first tag . Took me longer to make this than a card, wanted it really girly as i am going to put it on my granddaughters present, she loves flowers and is a really girly 5 yr old. Like everything else there is no right and wrong its how we all inter prate things we see.
I have used a Sherri Baldy image called patchwork pattie from the besties range. I never get sick of using these gorgeous images. Coloured with promarkers. There are die cuts from memory box,
cheerylynn, and Marianne designs and a couple i have taken out of packets and put into a magnetic folder and of course forgot who they are by, wonder if its just me that does that.
Teamed up with flowers from wild orchid, gems, lace and feathers from dainty supplies and sentiment from craftwork cards.

Bride and groom dancing


A great image from Mo Manning called bride and groom dancing, i have made the card for a friends daughter who is getting married soon, i have included the pink as that is the theme at the wedding, i wanted it to have a romantic feel to it. I distressed around the image with antique linen and the heart as the dress is ivory. The gorgeous lace and bead work was a piece i bought to go on a dress for a wedding, the wedding didn't take place so it was never used just waiting for the right opportunity to use it. All the backing papers were out of an old issue of making cards. I used an open wild rose and two tea roses from wild orchid crafts. The 3 tiny closed pink roses from hobbycraft and all the other bits from dainty supplies.

Pearl sea kissed mermaid

A sweet digi image from Lacy Sunshine, i'm not usually into mermaids much but i think she is rather sweet. The two background sheets are from a set i had from hunkydory, which i though worked well as one had sand and shells on and the other waves. I colors with promarkers. I cut her out into an oval distressed the edges with broken china distress ink and added her to the frame, i also distressed the edges of the frame with antique linen. I used a clear glitter glue with gorgeous iridescent glitter in to paint on her hair and her tail but it does not really show up on the photo. the weeds are painted with sakura glitter pens. I added heart jewels on the  heart to give a bit of bling and pearl and shells to go with the theme.

Banana Pie


Another one of Sherri Baldy images called Banana Pie. The little girl i have made it for is mad on handbags so was asked if it could have one somewhere on the card. I have colored the berries in the basket with glitter pens to make them look like blackberry's which are lovely and ripe at the moment in out part of the world. . The heart doily is from ribbon box but all the rest are oddments from mixed bags i bought off ebay, i would dearly love to own some more myself but they are so expensive and crafting on a budget does not allow I'm afraid. The flowers are from Hobbycraft the feather i have left over from when i used to decorate cakes. The ribbon is out of a christmas paper set i bought many years ago.

chloe christmas card


The two images i have used are from pink gem, Chloe with reindeer and winter fence, i think they really work great together. I coloured both images then cut out chloe and the reindeer plus an extra head of the reindeer so i could 3d them. Added flower soft snow and glitter to the two images. I coloured with promarkers. I decided i wanted some of the pine trees showing green instead of all snow. The backing papers are by dove craft, finished off with brads and a lovely ribbon which came with christmas paper pack years ago. The large snow flake was a kit i got at a craft fair from diane's die cuts.

Happy Birthday


The image is from the Molly Bloom Birthday Parade set, i think he is a cutie. Kept the card really plain and simple, followed a sketch from 4 Krafty chicks. I used my Woodware craft cutter to cut the border, coloured the image with promarkers. The ribbon around the image is from create and craft and the pearls from dove craft.
I lady asked me to do a very plain card for a little boys birthday, she wanted no fuss on the card and something flat which would post easily so this is what i came up with. A lot of people have said the past few weeks well i would have bought that card but it is too bulky to post, hears me thinking i have finally given in and done cards lately with flowers on that stick out and need to be in boxes, never mind you carn't please everybody.

Elisha's 8th Birthday


I have made this card for my great niece who will be 8 next month, she is a very girly girl. I cannot believe it has taken me all day to put together, but it is only a week since i had surgery so finding being sore and not being able to lift or stretch was taking its toll a bit, Anyway back to the card the image is no 726 from the Besties range by Sherri Baldy, i just think these images are just so cute. Coloured with Promarkers. The backing sheet was from a princess pad i had but down to last couple of sheets. The white card i embossed with my cuttlebug, the parasol i think could be marianne designs, the pink border is a martha stewart as is the heart. Sentiment from craftwork cards, Pearls are by dove craft. The rose's from Hobby craft. The sketch i followed is by Marie from sunday sketch and stamp.
