Time For Wine!

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope you are all well.

Checking my calendar this morning I realised I needed a card for my neighbour's Birthday on Saturday.

 I am not good at creating at the last minute so had a hunt through blogland for a sketch to me-he likes red wine so I knew I wanted to use this stamp set from Visible Image .

Just Add Ink's Sketch inspired me and I created this:

The wine bottle I actually stamped and fussy cut out first and have popped it up for some dimension.

I think he will like this....along with a real bottle of red!

Have a good day x

For Mum's!

 Hi All

I hope you are all well.

I needed a Mother's Day card for my Mother-in Law and was stuck for a design until I saw the sketch at CAS Colour and Sketches.

I loved it and knew I had some flowers in my stash that I could use to make a card.

And done!
The flowers are from my crafty friend Joyce-she sent them to me a while ago and I loved how they came together here and worked with the sketch-thank you Joyce x

Just for You!

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Here is a card I made this morning for some challenges.....and I actually did some colouring....blending and all!!

The colours I got from this week's challenge at Just Us Girls-sage green was a bit tough as I don't have any ink like that, so I blended some copics as close to it as I could. Plus added that touch of DP for a touch more.

Have a good day x

The flower is from CAS-ual Friday Stamps

I will enter into:
Just Us Girls-ivory, soft pink, sage green
Less is More-a bit of bling-spot my tiny sparkle pink gem??

Across The Miles!

 Hi Crafty Friends,

Made one of my fav kind of cards today-CAS, one layer, stamping only and a few gems/enamel dots!

Here it is:

The little bird is from Funky Fossil Designs. The other stamps are from 

A number of challenges went into creating this card:

AAA Cards-gave me the sketch

Color Throwdown-the colours

CAS on Friday-one layer Birthday-good for sending abroad

Less is More-a bit of bling-the card needed something and when I saw this challenge I decided to add the 3 little gems

Inkspirational-curve-gave me the idea to add the curly cloud and curve off the edge of the card.

Thanks you to all these challenges for the inspiration.

Have a good day x

You are Incredible!

 Hi All

I am here, a little late, to celebrate Woman's Day, which was on the 8th.

There is a hop going on here on Instagram to celebrate and I wanted to join in.

A few challenges caught my eye and helped inspire me to create this card:

Yes, all you Woman out there are incredible in your own precious way!

It was the 'curve' challenge at Inkspirational that I got me thinking first. I liked this idea and I knew I wanted to use this Hummingbird stamp from Penny Black as it curls so much. I wanted to carry on the curl to add more movement and it was the sketch at AAA Cards that gave me the idea of using the grey swirl you see here-this is actually the wine swirl from Visible Image!

And the colours are from the latest challenge at Color Throwdown.

A lot of challenges helped inspire me to make this card and I enjoyed making it especially I was making it for all you incredible Woman!

Have a good day x

Meet Bubbles!

 Hello Friends,

I have been wanting to join in the challenge at AAA Cards-use 1/9th option-fav animal plus the one layer with one word challenge at Less is More but was a bit stuck for ideas. Until I saw the photo at Just Us Girls (see below). The bunny surrounded by flowers reminded me of a very old stamp-a cat surrounded by flowers!

So, using my cat, Bubbles as my model, I made this super CAS card:

Bubbles is a Ragdoll cat and is all white except the areas I have coloured-have a look at him here having a little lazy time at Christmas:

I did actually colour the white areas of the cat with a white gel pen then added some sparkle!

Bubbles is a sweetie but only when he wants to be!!

Cats will be cats!

Have a good day x

CASology #401 HAT

 Hi All

We have a new challenge at CASology and our cue word is 'HAT'.

This stumped me as I don't have any 'hat' stamps until I remembered that I needed a Birthday card for one of my Family who are all lovers of the show 'Peaky Blinders'. If you don't know this show, the guys in it all wear peaked caps, like the one I have used on my card. I have to admit hubby helped me here by doing some digi work and printing this off for me. I just had to do the design and some fussy cutting. I chose the font for the sentiment as it is very close to the font used for the show!

So here we are:

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Tracy-pop on over to her blog here to see all her wonderful cards-welcome Tracy x

Our Design Team all have some super inspiration for you-so pop on over to our blog here to take a look and then join in the fun!
