Male birthday cards!

The image is a free digi and I have coloured it with copic markers. I have stenciled in some clouds and a sun with versa color inks. I have embossed the green card with the swiss dots folder and used twine on the top of the card.

Wee stamp again....

I have made this card for the sketch saturday but am not sure if I have made the time line or not, oh well I will enter it anyway.

For this card I used the digi from Wee stamps called Suzie with bunny and coloured her with copics. For the papers I have used the Earth Love paper pack from cosmo cricket, oooh love these papers! I used a blue pearlised cardstock for the back.I have cut my image out with the clossic scalloped ovels in large and used distress ink antique linen around the edge. The lace is from my stash along with the heart shapes. I used the SU punch for the flowers and added some pearls to the center. 
I am also entering this into use at least 3 different dp.
Have a great weekend!

Oh a new Christmas challenge!

I just love Christmas and was excited when I found this new challenge that requires you to follow the sketch at and this is the card that I am entering.
I got this stamp last year from Lily of the valley and think he is so cute. I have coloured him with my copics and added sparkle fluff to the hat and pom pom. I have cut out the images with spellbinders labels eleven and also used this for the sentiment. I added a snow flake from my stash.. I sponged some distressed ink in peeled paint around the edge of the papers. I hope everyone can get along and look at this new challenge site and stock up on cards for Christmas early!
Hope you have a great weekend!

I got the tutorial for the bag from  and was so well done and easy to follow.Thank you!

A first for me....

I have looked at many blogs where stitching is used and have always wanted to give it a go and so I finally got around to it and although I think I need a bit more practice I will try again. This is the card I have done, once again using the super cute teddy bee image....

I printed this one out on Kraft card, another first me and used prismacolor pencils to colour it in.
I used my new Fleur De Lis Rectangles nestabilities to cut the image out and also a crochet flower with a Kaisercraft pearl brad in pink ice.
I would like to enter this into 
that wants girls birthday
anything goes.
Hope you have a great weekend!

The teddy bo challenge

Well I know that we are over easter now, but I could not resist this oh so cute teddy bo in rabbit costume to put into the that wants to see easel cards.

I have used the SU scalloped die to make the card and then cut another out in the ice cream paper that I got as free in a magazine. I have then cut another one out in the blue pearlised sheet and used a pattern paper that I got from the local spotlight store cut out with the large circles nestabilities. 
The bottom sentiment is from the sweet 'n sassy stamp set and that is on a labels 14.
I have colored the teddy bo in with copics and used some sparkle fluff on the pom pom and the tail.
I cut the image out and put it onto foam pads to lift it up.
Well I hope you have a very Happy Mothers day wherever you are!

Happy Mother's Day

I made a card for my mum for Mothers day that is on Sunday and thought that I might enter it into a few challenges that I have seen when visiting blogs...This is what I made
I have used another Teddy Bea digi image and also the accessories. I have colored them with copics and cut out the robe, fluffy slippers, mat and the mirror. I put my own sentiment into the mirror and added some glitter. I have used some dimensional paint for the bubbles and also a little more glitter.
I am not sure what the top paper is and the bottom is just card stock. I have used a stampin up punch for the middle.
And this is the front of the card
I had this paper that looked like wood grain so was perfect for the doors. I have put some gold stickers around the edges and added gold sticker balls for the handles.
I used the spellbinders nesties labels 14 for the front and some valcro strip on one side to keep the doors closed.
The sentiment is computer generated and I doodled around the edge with a glitter pen.
I would like to enter this into: mothers day and/or flowers

Hope you all have a great Mother's Day whenever you celebrate it!
