Winter Birthday Card

I have made this card for my God Daughters Birthday, hope she likes it

The image is a Greetings Farm stamp from the Rain, Snow, Shine set I coloured her with Promarkers and added Flower Soft Polar White flakes as the fur on her coat trim, muffler and ear muffs . The papers are Paper Mania Henbury Lane from the perfect summer day collection (well I found some wintery ones lol) they are glittery but I don't think the camera has picked up the glimmer too well, the colours are more vibrant than the camera has shown too. I made the flowers from punching out onto co-ordinating paper and adding some glittered flowers, the ticket is a freeby download, sorry can't remember whos I printed them ages ago before I lost a lot of my downloads from my lap top, I just coloured to match the colour scheme. Ribbon is Anitas and gems from stash, wooh think that covers everything :0)
THink I just have time to enter this card into the Moving Along With The Times Challenge -  Anything Goes!

Have a Fab New Year xx

A few cards I made recently for orders

Hello Bloggers,
I am still not doing much card or jewellery making but have made some cards for my regulars who have asked for bespoke personalised cards. I actually enjoyed taking my time making these cards instead of rushing to get cards finished for deadlines.
Wedding Easel Card

Side View

The matching box

I just love this Freeby Digi from the Whiff Of Joy Blog
I coloured him with Promarkers 

I wanted to have a rocking horse that moved so I Googled and found this site Make it Crafty
So I sorta copied her idea and added my own touches lol The hardest part was how to make it rock but I sorta figured it and here is the result!
the horse is a colouring book image coloured with Promarkers

This is a simple 3d card for a friends Hubby

I love this castle card it is so sweet I got the template from A Path Of Paper Unfortunately my camera died on me and this is the best shot I got

Long post ?
 lol hope you made it to the end


Taking a break

I will be taking a break from card making and blogging for a while.
 My mum has just passed away, cancer took her so quickly, I have no will to make cards at the moment.
Thank you to all of the people who have taken time in the past to comment on my cards xxxx


DU2DS Friday Challenge 35 - Metal

This weeks DU2DS Friday Challenge is Metal.........

I was not sure how I was going to approach this challenge but knew I wanted to use this adorable Chibi Mermaid drawn by the very talented artist Cyname. She uploads her drawings on the Deviant Art website and allows you to colour her art as you wish. I had a shell charm that I thought would look fab on the card and would  also be my "metal" for the theme. I also used some metalic board for the swirls.
I have coloured the mermaid with Promarkers with added stickles glitter. The Dp's are Making Memories ( I think) Ribbon and cardstock from stash.
I haven't yet put a sentiment on as I feel it could be used for a number of occaisions so I left a space above the ribbon to add a small greeting if required.
Have fun this week and I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you come up with for this weeks Dare

DU2DS Challenge 33 - No patterned paper!

DU2DS Challenge 33 - No patterned paper!
This is a challenge and a half as I love designer papers lol but I dug out my embossing folders and got to work! Not sure who's these digis are but will try and find out and put a link on as I love this cheeky monkey.
As usual I have coloured the image with Promarkers. I inked up the Birthday embossing folder with white ink before embossing the blue paper. It just gived the embossing a bit more definition.

We're looking forward to seeing what you'll come up with to create your background. Please include a digital image on your card or project and link your blog post for the challenge directly into Mr. Linky so that we can find your entry easily. Have fun and here's what we came up with:
