Hippy Chick

Hi All,

Thought I would pop on today to show you a card I made my niece for her birthday off the kids. I have had it made a while and I did follow a sketch from somewhere but not sure where now (sorry).

The image is from Sugar Nellie and is one of the first Sassy Girls, I brought the set when it was released and this if the first time any of them have seen ink (slaps hands lol). She reminds me of being young in the summer, sitting in the school field making daisy chains during lunch break lol!!!

The papers are from Crate Paper - Bliss collection pack and I thought the funky colours suited the image perfectly.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Fab N Funky - Summer Lovin

Anything Goes - Here comes Summer

Stampacular Sunday - Fun in the Sun

Thanks for popping by my blog today

Happy Anniversary

Hi all,

Today is my Wedding Anniversay, the hubby and I have been married for 9 years today although we have been together for 15 in total. I am at work this morning but finish at 1.30 then are off for a nice lunch at Cosmo, before picking the kids up from school.
This is the card I have made him, fairly simple with the embellies as he is not one to appreciate lots of girly stuff going on.

The image is from Ladybug Crafts Ink, Papers are MME, X-Cut punched hearts, Papermaina gems and a bit of string.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Ladybug Crafts Ink - Masuline

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Sweet Stamps - Wedding/Anniversary

The Stamping Boutique - Men Only

Cheerful Stamp Pad - Special Reason

I would also like to show you a card that has been published in this months Creative Cardmaking Magazine. I sell the mag in my shop and a couple of months ago was asked (along with some other craft shops) to submit 3 cards showing creative ways of using double sided paper. They were then going to pick one to appear in the mag, this is the one they picked.

Basically I created a folded frame from the double sided paper and made a lollipop flower alternating the side of the paper that showed. The other 2 cards I made featured a paper windmill and paper weaving (not sure whats going to happen to them, but I do have pics somewhere which I will pop on when I can find them.

Thanks for popping by the blog today.

Wedding Wishes

Hi all,

Well I have finally made a card, its been while and I have really struggled with my Mojo but had to get my backside in gear this last weekend and make my cousins wedding card.
As I was in the process (of trying to create a masterpiece) the latest issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft dropped through my letter box and there was a fab feature by the lovely Bev in there, I took inpsiration for this card from the one she did for the mag.

On the inside I made a little pocket on the LH side to hold an envelope of money (which was also decorated to match).

I was then feeling adventerous and so made a matching box

The image used was a LOTV Die Cut and I used MME Totally Girl papers (kindly brought me by a friend). Papermania Kraft cardstock and WOC flowers. The butterflies are a MS punch to which I added lots of stickles to make them sparkly.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges

Lilli of the Valley - Punch it up

C.R.A.F.T - Wedding/Love
