Friday 10 February 2012


Hi all, 
I hope your Friday has been good!
I have to say it's my favourite day of the week, all the promise of the weekend ahead!

I just wanted to share this little CAS card with you

It was made using the scraps from another card I made 
which I will share with you in a bit!
The base card is an ivory linen textured A6 card blank.
I made the sentiment on my PC & printed on to some core'dinations 
card stock using Cutie Pop font which you can find free here.
I cut it out with an oval nestie, then I cut out a scalloped oval matt of brown card 
& some punched leaves.
The flower was recycled from another project & had 
been layered with a little glittered brad as the centre.
I hope you like it!
I'd like to put this card forward for a couple of challenges

Happy Friday!
Just a quick share with you today!

it's about
 Raising Awareness of Breast Cancer.
I'm sure many of your lives have been touched by breast cancer in one way 
or another& I'm sure raising awareness 
can only be a good thing
Now this little group has moved home & are now resident in the Crafter's Cafe.

super sweet candy to entice you in!

A Freebie & A GDT Spot at Dude Time Doodles

Good Morning blog land! 
Happy Hump Day!! 
I do love Wednesday's, not only is it half way through the week 
but it's challenge time at Dude Time Doodles!
Woo Hoo it's that time of the month again!

This weeks image, Zeke Zoro has already been in the store 
but for this week only you can grab him for free & bring him to life!
Here's my card!

 As I was making it up I kept humming the tune from The Mask Of Zorro,
"I want to Spend My Lifetime Loving You". I love that song, sooo romantic!
I loved the movie too!
I used the Simple Sketch from Midnight Madness 

for the layout of my card.!
The papers are new, a fab bargain from Hobbycraft.
Greatly reduced because the front cover was torn!
They are Hopscotch from K & Co.
I also added some Card Candi!

Zeke has been coloured up with Promarkers!
He's one handsome Dude with the most piercing 
blue eyes behind that mask! 
I distressed the edges & rounded with a corner punch!

I decorated the inside of the card with the same design & papers!
So, you have a week to grab the freebie, create a card for a Dude 
using the image, upload to the Challenge Blog

It's A Girl!

Morning all!
I have a card to share!
I was asked to make a card for a new baby!
I couldn't blog about it before as the person it was
 intended for may have seen it!

The image is from Pink Gem Designs
She's so yummy you could just eat her!!!
The layout for my card was a sketch

The challenge is now closed but I thought I'd share the sketch anyway!
The papers I used are from Lidl!
They get some fab craft stuff in occasionally!

I coloured up the image with promarkers & added some 
Anita's 3D Glaze to the bubbles!
I distressed all my edges with a pair of scissors & an ink pad!

The sentiment was made on my PC.
Embellishment wise, I added some brads, ribbon bows,
& layered Papermania flowers with brads at the centre.

Finally, a few little buttons from my stash!
I do hope you like it!
Thanks so much for dropping in!
I'm off to look for some challenges as most I had in mind
