Luv a Latte

Have been meaning to blog this card for the last few days and finally got round to it. I coloured the image when I was visiting Susan. I took Louis over for a few hours to play with her two boys. She's called Luv A Latte and is a Simply Sassy stamp from Sugar Nellie.She's coloured with Copics (no surprises there)

The papers are MME.Sentiment is SU Oh So Many Sayings and is stamped inside the punched out area using the SU Word Window punch.The other punch is a Martha Stewart punch around the page.Buttons and pearls from stash.

Finally got the electrics fitted in the cabin.Was out today and chose the light fitting for it.Just need to get some flooring then it's off to Ikea to kit it out!

My Fair Lady

I was asked to make a 50th Birthday card and decided to use this digi image from Sassy Studio Designs. I've coloured her with my copic markers.The card is cut using a Go Kreate die and the white paper is actually embossed although it's not showing very well.It's by Doodlebug.The ribbon,maribou feathers and satin flowers are all from a local haberdashers. The sentiment I printed on the PC and cut out using a Spellbinders Fancy Tag die. The bling round it is made specifically for these dies and you just peel them and stick.

I still feel there's something missing from this card. Not sure what though.Probably the fact it's pretty plain and simple for me..lol

Sugar Bowl Challenge # 65

Wow I can't believe I've managed to make another challenge card. I've not posted this much for a while. Well at least it's a lot for me!...lol.
The challenge over at The Sugar Bowl was to follow Maria Therese's sketch and the option of blue.I've used the Simply Sassy image from Sugar Nellie called Team Spirit and coloured her with my Copic Markers in colours to match the gorgeous Bo Bunny Liberty papers.The pom poms I made using a strip of blue card and cutting a fringe all along it and scrunching it up. I
thought it looked quite effective. The star is a Sizzix die and the alphabet stamps are from Fiskars.I've dotted all around the blue cardstock with my white gel pen. The eyelets are just set in a line on a plain piece of white card.

Here's a close up picture of the hand made pom poms

Off to lie down in a dark room now....lol.
Only joking!

I've nearly finished another card so watch this space!

Sugar Bowl Challenge 64

We'd been having little challenges on the Sugar Nellie Facebook page and one had been funky hair colours. As usual I missed the deadline.although in all fairness I was only just back my holidays.So instead I used the image for the Sugar Bowl Challenge #64 Kiki's Sketch. The image is a Simply Sassy called Apple Of My Eye and is coloured with Copic Markers. Her hair is a funky green colour, and I've added some glossy accents to the apples. The papers are a mixture of Craft Creations,MME and BG. I love this sentiment as it reminds me of something my dad used to always say to me. It's by Unity Stamps.The sentiment is cut out with an X Cut set of nesties.Flowers and ribbons from stash.

As I mentioned I'm entering it into the Sugar Bowl Challenge

I also thought I'd share another picture with you.I moved house a few months ago and as the garden is pretty big and I don't have a craft room that I'd buy a log cabin to use as my craft studio.All my friends on Facebook have been getting kept up to date with the progress of it.It's not quite finished yet as I have to get the electrics installed,but I thought I'd show you a picture of it so far.
I can't wait to finally have it up and running and have my own little space.

Manga Rock Idol

I hate making cards for the male of the species but I bit the bullet and made this one for my friend's birthday using the Sugar Nellie Manga Rock Idol stamp. He's coloured with my trusty copic markers. The cardstock is Bazzill and I can't remember what the PP is.Possibly Crate.The star punch is by EK Success.Sentiment is by LOTV.Star is a Sizzix die and the gorgeous large button I got in Bee Crafty in Elgin.I hadn't finished this card when I went on holiday so got the chance to finish it when I went to The HOS in Elgin.

I had a wonderful time on holiday in Lossiemouth.Met Karen,Kate,Erika,Sharon,Kath and Debbi and also met an old school friend who now owns a golf course and tea room just outside Lossie.What a small world.
