Happy Valentines Day!

Good afternoon bloggers!
Here's my second post for today!
This is the CAS Valentines Day Card I made for my hubby!

He's watched me doing so many other Valentine cards with 
hearts & red & white papers, I decided to make something a
little bit different for him!I used an A4 sheet of CS 
folded in half & cut into two A6 cards.
I punched a border using a Tonic punch then
 inked the edges with my liquid chalk inkpad.
I added a double bow (which I had tied already for another
project & didn't use) a computer generated sentiment &
some little blue heart shaped buttons which I've had in my stash 
for ages.

The font I have used is Words Of Love & you can 
download it free from here! I reckon that's about as much as I can say 
about this little creation!
Thanks so much for popping in!

Hoedown At Desert Sands

Good Morning Lovely Bloggers!
Here I am again with a card this time! Yay!!!
This is for the Hoedown at Just Inklined!
Have you heard about their brand new wild Western digital stamps?

The image I have used is Desert Sands. I have also used Tickets from
Just Inklined. I used a blank ticket to which I added my own text.
The base card is Kraft to which I added a matt of checked card.

Here's a closer look!

We all know it's hot out there in the desert & things get burned, right?
My image was no exception!
I coloured it up with a mix of Promarkers & Flexmarkers then
I set fire to the edges, putting it out before the smoke detector went off! lol
The DP is from my stash. I've had it for absolutely ages. Not sure
 who it's by!All I can tell you about it is that it's travel related!
I also added a strip of faux leather which I studded with brads,
a length of twine a little star charm & two large brads which have
all been in my stash for ages! 
I'm trying to use lots of stuff up to make room for some new supplies!

Thanks for stopping by! I always enjoy your visits!

Happy New Year!
I just stopped by to share another Chinese New Year card with you!
Today is officially Chinese New Year!

I know, he's in a tree but he's suspended over water!
Check out the koi carp & the water lillies on the background paper!

I used the image Ringo from Just Inklined.

I coloured Ringo with Promarkers & Flexmarkers & a touch of liqiud chalk in the sky,
cut him out with a Circle Nestie then inked the edges with a liquid chalk inkpad.
I added a scalloped circle matt & some punched leaves which I embossed
to give some dimendsion.
The papers are from my stash, not sure who they are by as
they have been there for a very long time!
I added some twine & 3 orental coin charms!
The sentiment was made on my pc & attached with foam tape.

I decorted the inside just a little too! The punched border
was done using a Matha Stewart border punch.
Thanks for dropping by!
Have a great day!
