A Couple Of Cards To Share

Just thought I'd share a couple of cards I made in the last couple of months, I've not done much crafting recently so there's not much to show. The first is an easel card using the Sugar Nellie stamp Flowers and the second is using a digi image from Phindy's Place called big Boots to Fill.
Both are coloured with Copic Markers.

Little Pram

I saw this gorgeous little pram on the very talented Jannhild's blog and thought it looked totally adorable so decided to give it a try. Jannhild got the original instructions HERE.It's made using circle nesties and scallops.I found it a bit fiddly but worth the effort.The little cover inside opens like a little card to write your greetings in.I'll probably stamp something on it to welcome a new baby.

I meant to post this the other day but I had an abcess under a tooth and had been in agony with it.There is no pain worse than toothache.Anyways it's all sorted now.Tooth had to be removed and a course of antiobiotics.
I bought the new Basic Grey Capella papers and absolutely love them,so couldn't wait to make a card with them.I've made the flowers out of the papers too using my circle nesties.

Pink,pink and more pink

Yes another card post from me.It's like a bus,nothing then they all come along at once,and it's NOT one of my cards for the demo weekend.This one I made yesterday.It's very pink and girly which is nothing like I used the gorgeous new Papermania Henbury Lane collection.They really are beautiful colours and lots of them are glittered. Both the papers I used were glittered so I went the whole road and glittered anything that sat still long enough,including round the image,the punched branches,the roses and the nestie frame and corner. Bling,bling,bling!!

I seen that the challenge on Papertake Weekly was for Shiny,Sparkly and Special so have decided to enter it.Not sure if that's allowed after I posted,but I'll take my chances.I've also had to allow commenting for that reason.

Summer Ice Cream

Well it's certainly not summer here yet,but I've used this adorable image from Sugar Nellie to make this card.It's another card I made for the demo weekend.Gorgeous MME Quite Contrary papers again.I saw this style of card a while back on a blog but can't remember where.The front of the card has been cut down to half size (not sure if it has a name). Anyway I thought I'd give it a go and was quite pleased with it. Unfortunately my sewing machine threw a hissy fit and I had to finish up hand sewing the card.Sorry about the photos,but it was a really sunny afternoon. Typical!...we moan when it's dull and moan when it's

First Of Demo Cards

Well I should have some cards to post over the next few days.I can finally post my demo day cards. I don't think I've ever made so many cards in such a short space of time.I'll be surprised if my mojo hasn't gone walkabout again.
I'll start with the most popular card from the weekend.It's the lovely Post Box stamp from Sugar Nellie and coloured with Copics and using the scrummy MME Quite Contrary papers.I love the bright fresh colours of this.I used the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis punch and tried the make it look like a little fence at the front of the easel card.I finally got round to using those cute little flower pots I'd bought ages ago and never knew what to use them for. I used distress inks around the outside of the image too.

The lovely embossed border the ribbon is threaded through is a Marianne Creatable.

Baby Boy Card

Another card I made this week to share with you. A baby boy card made using a Whiff of Joy image of Willow with baby. I've been busy finishing off the 10 projects I had for the demo weekend at Craft World but managed to squeeze this one in.

First Card In 3 Months

Well this is my first attempt at a card since early January. This was for a friends little girls birthday.One of my favourite Gorjuss girl images coloured with Copics and paper pieced. I've just realised I've forgotten to use my white highlighter pen....doooohhhh. The little buttons I also coloured with my copics to match as they were plain white.

I've finished 5 of my projects for the demo weekend and the other 5 are well on their way,so for once I shouldn't be faffing about at the last minute.

Hi folks,sorry for not being around for quite a while,but I'd been unwell for a while and I'd also just lost the enthusiasm for doing any crafting.My craft stuff has been packed up since Christmas and I'd only made one card in January.I only just made my first card in all that time last week.I probably won't be posting regularly but will when I have something to show.For that reason as the message above states,I've disabled commenting (at least I hope I have if it worked). I hope you'll still pop by now and again as i'll certainly be visiting and looking at your lovely work.I just felt before too much of my time was getting taken up commenting on blogs.
I've got a demo weekend next weekend at my local craft store Craft World (previously known as Craftology) so have had card samples to make up for that,so can hopefully share them after the demo. I've had 10 lovely Sugar Nellies to play with and colour and gorgeous papers from BoBunny and MME,so that gave me the kick up the backside to get crafting again.I'll be demoing copic markers so please pop by and say hello if you'll be going.
Thanks again
