Cheeky Bubbles Chester

I've had this card 80% finished for the last week or so and finally got it finished.Mainly because I started another 2 male cards and was still in male mode.This'll be the 4th male card.....go me!!
I've used the Little Miss Muffet digi called Bubbles Chester who I just love.He's such a cute wee chap.

Sugar Bowl GD

A few weeks ago I won The Sugar Bowl challenge and the lovely Fiona asked if I'd like to be Guest Designer for this challenge. I was delighted to take part as I've been a Sugar Nellie fan practically since they started.I'm using the Diane Duda image To The Moon which is available from the shop. Usually I steer clear of male cards,but I really loved this image and really enjoyed making this card. I've went overboard with my Wink Of Stella glitter pen which is my new favourite.You can't make much of it out but I used it round the edge of the card,on the punched stars and on the rocket. As always the Sugar Bowl Sweeties have done a fantastic job.

Martini Anyone?

Today I'm using another fab image from Simply Betty Stamps called Martini Melissa. I adore these stamps as it lets me practise my hair colouring,which tends to be a bit hit and miss.I've teamed her up with these gorgeous MME papers called Cambridge Court.As always I've blinged her up with my Wink Of Stella pen.

Princess And A Cat

That was the brief I was given for making this 21st birthday card.She likes princesses and cats,so this image from Saturated Canary was perfect. I decorated the inside and made a matching box. I embossed the white card with the embossing folder,then cut up squares of patterned paper and stuck them down and then ran it through the embossing folder again to get the patchwork effect. It was quite easy to line up again as it has a stitched effect.

Sneaky Peeks......

This Saturday and Sunday I'll be demonstrating at Craftworld in Hillington.It's their twice yearly Craft Extravaganza.Ten demonstrators demoing lots of different products.This time I'll be showcasing Tattered Lace dies.

 Now I'm more of a coloured image type of card maker,so making cards using just dies was really taking me out my comfort zone.I did manage to sneak in a couple with Hobby House pre coloured toppers. (phewwww).
So I thought I'd show a couple of sneaky peeks of 4 of the cards I've made.
