Good morning & a very happy Saturday to you all!
I have a little card to share with you today!

This is a joy fold card which was made using the ever popular

This is Brickies, also available as a single Decoupage Sheet
The papers I have used are on the CD Rom too!

Here's a closer look at the cheeky chappies!

A little view of the card open, you can see the fold & the dimension
on the decoupage. I used pinflair glue for this one

I used the little leftover bits to make a little matching gift tag!
Thanks for popping in today!

Good Morning everyone!
It's Thursday once again & time to share another
Just Inklined card with you!
This one was made for my hubby's birthday!

It had to be quickly made as he kept following me around & was
there at every turn!  If I'd wanted him for something, he'd be
 nowhere to be seen! lol
I used a Craftwork Cards card blank for the base.
The design paper is from Southfield Stationers Craft Pad - Male.
I love this tartan paper.
Not sure why I decided on a Black & White theme but I did!

Here's a closer look at the image, it's called Speedway 
& is one of the fun exclusive images available on
which is still available for just $5 or £3.05.
I keep finding more & more on there!
I coloured up the image with my promarkers & matted on to
black cardstock. I added this to the card using foam tape for dimentsion.

A button threaded with a little twine was added  for embellishment,
 the sentiment was matted on to black cardstock, with brads added
 to each end & then attached to the card using foam tape.
Thanks for popping in!
I hope you like this little card!

All Things Bright & Beautiful

Happy Hump Day all!
I do love Wednesdays don't you?
 It's all downhill towards the weekend from here!
Today, sees the first challenge of 2014 over at 
The theme this time is "All Things Bright & Beautiful"
Here's my DT sample!

The image is a pre-coloured digi stamp, she's called Gypsy Dance from

who are sponsoring the challenge this time!
The card base & image were cut using a Grand Nestability Die
The paper is from the First Edition Hideaway Stack .
The ribbon, fibres & button are from my stash

A little side view to show you the fold,
I took a little slice off of the bottom at the back to stop it from rocking over.

The sentiment is from TLC Creations I did have a look for it over at
Create With TLC to add a link back but couldn't find it!
(I have a feeling that it may have been created for a DT I used to be on)
Thanks for popping in, I hope to see you over in the challenge!

Shabby Penny Pamper

Good Morning Bloggers!
I hope you're well!
I have this little card to share with you!
I have made a similar card in the past using this image & papers 
but this is the shabbier chic version!

Whenever I see her, I start singing "Splish Splash I was taking a bath!"
The proper colour is this

but, when I printed them out, my printer was playing games
& they looked a bit muddy. However, I quite liked the result,
 so decided to stick with it! The papers were printed on to matt photo paper. 
The Sentiment Ticket is from The Crafty Pad too!

The image was coloured with a combination of Promarkers & Flexmarkers
The edges were distressed with a pair of scissors then inked

The flowers were inked & layered with a brad to secure them.
(These have been in my stash forever)
The leaves & butterflies were punched & inked.
The ribbon I've used was plain white but it also received the ink treatment!

The sentiment ticket was distressed & inked too!
Thanks for looking at my creation!
I hope you like it!

I have candy on my blog here! Do play along!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Snowman Buddy Circles

Here's a final little look at Christmas 2013!
I promise! lol
This was the last card I made to send off.
I did have a similar card from a while back. 
A friend had admired it & I said I would send it to her.
However, when I went to a Christmas Fayre I somehow managed to sell it!
EEEKK! So, here's MKII

I'm sure you'll recognise Snowman Buddy from Just Inklined.
My favourite snowman of 2013!
Coloured with Promarkers

You can see the embossed circles & glittered edges.
The snowflakes were punched & glittered too!

A last little look as he wave goodbye for now!

Don't forget I have some candy on my blog!
