Boys & Their Toys!

Happy Wednesday all!
Today, I'm sharing the card I made for the new challenge over at
This weeks Challenge is  "Boy's & Their Toys"
I think that's pretty clear, don't you???
Here's my card!

Oh no, I've done it again, another square card! Sorry!
This is Larry Lane & he loves to go bowling but, 
sometimes in life as we all know, Split Happens! lol
The sentiment is part of the Larry Lane Set

I coloured Larry with my trusty Promarkers then cut him out with a 
square nestie, I did a bit of shading with a flexmarker but I'm not sure 
if you can see it on the photo's.
The digital papers & embellishments are from the 
Ten Pin Kit at Peppermint Creative
I also added some little ribbon tags which I secured with brads 
which have been in my stash forever!

The inside of the card has a bit of decoration too!
The border punch is by Martha Stewart

Here's a side view!

It's Simple! Call Me.........

Hello all!
It's time to showcase the June New Releases from The Crafty Pad Designs!
These are in the form of Silhouettes this time!
These have a real vintage feel about them & could be used for cards for male or female
I was given the Table image to work with, but I loved all of these images
so much, I just had to get my hands on more!
In the end, I used the Table, the Telephone & the Chair
Here's my creation

I made a pretty simple Black & White card.
I merged the images in my graphics programme
then added some text. I then printed the image onto 
some linen embossed cardstock.
 I cut out the image using an inverted scalloped nestie
then matted onto a scalloped circle of black cardstock.
The A6 card blank was pre-embossed with spots!
I fixed the image to the card using foam pads to give a bit of dimension
then added a double bow & a stick pin.

A trio of black self adhesive pearls finishes off the card!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my little card!

Pretty In Pink

I thought I'd share this simple little card with you today!

The message is clear!
The card base is an A6 pre-printed Papermania Designer Card.

The image & sentiment are both Breast Cancer Awareness Freebies 
The image was coloured with promarkers & flexmarkers.
I added a matt of card which was punched down one side with a
Martha Stewart border punch.

The sentiment was rounded off on two corners with a corner punch.

I also added a couple of butterflies. 
The larger butterfly is a Tonic punch, the smaller is Martha Stewart.
A few self adhesive pearls just finish it off!

The image I have used is The Crafty Pad Designs
I've used this image several times & I just love it!
It's so versatile!
I took the inspiration for my colours from the photo's


I used Promarkers & Flexmarkers to colour it up then added 
a bit ofDiamond Sparkles glitter.
The image was cut out using a scalloped circle nestie then matted onto 
some plain cardstock.
The D is a piece of Oragami paper is from some blog candy which I won
and the buttons are from a Papermania Capsule Collection

I hand cut & rolled the little flowers & the double bow is a
