Sketch saturday

This is not quite following the sketch as i got a bit distracted at a crucial moment and stuck snowy on the wrong side! but over all quite pleased with this card! Image is PB, coloured with PMs, not sure what the paper is, maybe doodlebug? embossed the white bit the snowflakes embossing folder through the bug and of course lots of stickles. The sentiment is done on the pooter.

Papertake and passion for PMs.

Not so keen on this card, think it looks a bit unfinished, but i was fed up of faffing around with it! The layout is from Papertake, and the colour scheme is from passion for PMs. think the image is PB, not too sure tho. the paper is DCVW, and the ribbon i found in me stash.


Loved the layout on ASOS this week, wasnt so good at making sure everything was equal, but hey ho! it just makes it look handmade when its wonky! lol. image is PB snowy (thanks angie!) coloured with PMs. the paper is DCVW pink xmas stack and the glitter is stickles. Sentiment was done on the pooter.

just magnolia

well i havent made a tilda card for ages, so thought i would take a peek at the just magnolia challenge. I rotated the sketch. the papers are DCVW and i coloured her in with promarkers . sorry about the naff pics today, have fiddled with camera and done soemthing to it! lol. will have to wait until the man of the house comes home to sort it out (**update** think i have fixed the camera all by myself, have changed pic)

Colour create

Ok, ok , i know its not neon green but its the closest i had! made this card for Rob, my step father in laws birthday! well he would be that if i was married, but after 5 years i figure hes as good as my FIL! lol. think the image is from inkadinkadoo, the sentiment is the one that comes with it, but i typed it up instead!

this is for the DT call over on the ABC challenge, which you can find here!

LOL) The image is Penny black, the paper is some old DCWV that i found, and the flowery bit on the top half was stamped with some random lil stamps that i found.

Spoonful of sugar challenge

Well heres my take on the sketch from spoonful of sugar. I quite like this card. I used papermania sweet nothings papers, as i hadnt used them for a while, and i really must use them more as they are lovely. Cherry tilda is coloured with my watercolour pencils. I got the image from incy on docrafts. Flowers are prima from the bitty bag, gems from my stash. And the word was done with my bug in a rug alphabet in my cuttlebug. xx

Friday sketchers and charizma cards

I used the layout from friday sketchers and the recipe from charizma cards. you had to use 3 papers, 2 flowers and a ribbon. I cant remember who the papers are by as i got them out of my scrap box, and the ribbon was free from a mag last year some time. I coloured tilda with my whispers pens. I got the tilda image from incy over on do crafts. xx

PennyBlack sat challenge

The challenge this week was love, i actually made this card yesterday, before the challenge was set, so it worked out quite well! This was an order from somebody at work. Im not sure what the name of the stamp is as i got in a swap, but its really cute. I used my nesties to do the circle and swiss dots embossing folder on the black strip, then i used my bug in a rug alphabet for the letters. x
