Card catch up

Hello, it's lovely and sunny here today - and warm with it - which is great for my washing blowing happily on the line.
I have a few cards to show you today, which are birthday cards I have made recently for family and friends.
This first one as you can see, is for my brother, who loves his garden, so I thought this image suited him rather well. It is from digistampboutique, which is a site I am using more and more recently. I really love their images and still have lots to use.

This card is for a friend, who actually picked the papers she wanted for her card, cos she loved the colours so much! This is using the gorgeous 'Madelyn' stamp from The Greeting Farm. I had a lot of trouble sticking that bow on I can tell you!

This card was made using another Greeting Farm stamp called 'Princess Anya' and was made for a friends daughter.

And finally, this is for my cousin Sarah. This is a new stamp of mine from Whiff of Joy called 'Shopping Willow' and I love it. It's so lovely to colour and i'm sure I'll be using it a lot.

Thank you for looking.

Funky Munky!

I've had a proper crafting day today and have thoroughly enjoyed myself! I don't often get a whole day to myself, so have taken full advantage and have been sat on my backside all day! lol

So far, I've made this Funky Munky card, which is on the 'Paper Boutique' CD rom from Polkadoodles.

It was such a fun card to make. It's for Kevin's Godson, William, who is coming up to his 2nd birthday.

Thank you for looking.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Something different

I haven't made a card like this before, but enjoyed making it sooo much! It is just one of the fab templates on the Paper Boutique cd rom vol 1 from Polkadoodles.
I made this card for my Son to give his Girlfriend for her 18th Birthday and although I don't normally get much reaction from my Son about my cards, he absolutely loved this and so did his Girlfriend!

I don't normally do a lot of cutting out n stuff, I'm normally a stamper with an iddy bit of paper piecing now and then, but really enjoyed putting this card together, although I did run out of Glamour dust and had to have sparkly icing on every other layer instead of every layer, but I think it looks Ok for my first one!

Thank you for looking

It's about time!

Hello! I hope you are having a lovely Easter and have munched through tons of chocolate - or is that just me : )

It doesn't look that great outside today, gone really dark and gloomy and the wind is picking up a bit now aswell, so it doesn't look like I'll be going anywhere real soon. And anyway, it's been sooo long since I blogged I thought I would use this time on my own to upload a few pics of some of the cards I have made recently - the ones I remembered to photograph anyway!

This first one is a card I made for my daughter to give a friend at work. I really love this image and haven't used it much since I bought it, but am really pleased with how it turned out.

IMAGE: 'Primp' by Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers.
PAPERS: Kay & Co
SENTIMENTS: Papermania
I love this image, it's so cute. This is a card for my cousin's daughter who will be 6 tomorrow.

IMAGE: DigiStamp Boutique 'Fifi with present' coloured with promarkers
PAPERS: from scraps

love the colours on this card, which was made for Kozmik, a friend on DC.
I noticed when I took the pic that I had gone over the line slightly with my colouring, so obviously wasn't wearing my glasses, but apart from that, I really like this one.

IMAGE: was sent to me and if anyone knows the name of it I would love to know as I love it, but can't remember who sent it to me.
PAPERS: Basic Grey Nook & Pantry

I have 5 cards to make before Friday, so am going to make a start on those today.
Thank you for looking.
