Snow Kisses

Good morning all!
As some of you already know, I was lucky enough to be chosen
as a Guest Designer for Scribbles Designs.
They have some great images which you can check out here!
There are lots of Friday Freebies too, which gives you another great reason to visit!

I'm a sucker for snowmen & I had to get started on my Christmas cards, 
so, I made a little White On White Christmas card using -

The card base is 6"x6" Centura Pearl cardstock & I've used this 
for all of the elements. The image was coloured using Promarkers, 
then cut using a spellbinders circle die.
I added four embossed panels,which were popped up on foam pads for dimension.
I placed a memory box die cut, behind the image, & added a
 Marianne Creatables die cut snowflake,
To finish the card off, I threaded some sheer ribbon through the sentiment 
which was die cut with a spellbinders die.
Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you like my little card! Don't forget to check out the challenge

around the outside to create a frame.

Space Man.......

Good afternoon all!
 I have a card to share with you today!
I was planning to post this on the recipients birthday but....
I forgot to post the actual card to the recipient so I had to wait! lol
So Sorry Aryan!

This is a fairly simple card, made using a La Pashe decoupage sheet from
The Best Of La Pashe 2014 CD Rom.
All the time I was making it, I was singing the brilliant
 Babylon Zoo - SpaceMan to myself! I love that song!

The base card is 6"x6". I simply cut & layered the decoupage using
foam pads, then did a bit of matting & layering with silver mirror card.
I found a clock face in my die cut box, which I thought looked a bit
space-like. I cut it in half & tucked it behind the image.
A sprinkling of various sizes of punched stars were dotted around in the 
night sky to finish it off.
The sentiment was from the sheet too!
Thanks for popping in! I hope you like my little card!

Feminine Card (forMom)

Good Morning all!
It's time for the new challenge at Eureka Stamps!
The theme this week is
Here's what I made

I've used my favourite digi 20601 Most Special Day
I've used this one several times, as I just love it!
I never tire of finding new ways to use it!
I've used the sketch #191 from Paper Craft Crew for the design.
Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 191 #papercraftcrew #pcccs191
I've messed about with a little bit but I thought the layout 
was perfect for a vintage/shabby chic style card. 
The papers, frame & other embellishments are all from Trimcraft!
I used a liquid chalk inkpad on all the edges.

I do hope you can play along in this weeks Challenge & I 
look forward to seeing your creations!

I'd like to enter this card in a few other challenges

80 Years Young!

Good morning all! Hope you are all well!
( I must apologise for not being up to date on my blog commments.
I've not been feeling so great this past week but I am trying to catch up, 
so please just bear with me!)

The card I have to share with you was made for my lovely  Dad
who celebrated his 80th birthday yesterday!
Happy Birthday again Dad!

I know he likes these colours & he likes Marilyn Munro
The card base is 8"x8" I do enjoy working with this size of card!
The papers are from my minds eye.
The fantastic image is from Marilyn from Ike's Art. I've used her several times now!
I coloured her lightly with flexmarkers the cut out with a Spellbinders circle die!
I used the layout from Paper Play Sketches & would like to enter their challenge!
Isn't it fantastic!
I changed it to a square & instead of adding further embellishments,
I used Tea Dye distress ink with a film strip die & some sequin waste
as stencils. I used a bit of Kraft CS for matting & layering!
The fish tails were created using a square punch.
The sentiment button was done in my graphics programme.
If anyone would like it, please just ask!
The ribbon & lace are from my stash! I do love adding a bit of lace to cards
for men, as long as it's not too flowery or sparkly!
Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!

I made a cute little Monochromatic annivesary card using the
Lol, I have two rescue cats who love each other most of the time,
 but regularly beat up on each other just for fun!
I have to say I was singing the song Love Cats in my head,
all the time I was making this
I started with an A6 Kraft base then added a brick embossed panel,
which I brushed over with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
The image was lightly coloured using prisma pencils,
then cut with an Xcut heart die & inked with the Tea Dye DI.
The sentiment was brushed with ink then, image & sentiment were
popped up on some foam tape to add a little dimension.
My added bling is a few little sequins.

Carl's New Pad

Hi everyone!
How's your weekend going? Good I hope!
As you may know, I am currently a Guest Scribbler over at
Here's my latest card for them!

I made a New Home card for a guy who's just moved in to his first flat!
The cool image I have used is #321 Carl's Pad
(gotta love a cute frog in a pond lol )
The sentiment is my own!
My card base is the usual 6"x6".
I used a mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers to colour up the image.
The image & sentiment were die cut using spellbinders dies,
then inked with some liquid chalk ink.
The patterened paper is from a book of papers I picked up at Lidl.
The fish tail was created using a square punch on an angle!
I was going to add a couple of buttons but the little bit of trim appeared
 from nowhere & was the right size, so I stuck it on instead.
Thi card is flat which means it can easily be posted.
