Good morning lovelies,
It's Thursday again which means it's time for my
 Just Inklined card for this week.

I used the wonderful Albert to make an Anniversary card this time!
He's such a sweetie but I can see him as a bit of a Hell's Angel
in his younger days!
I opted for a Monochromatic theme for this card.
The papers I've used are from the Male Craft Pad from

This sketch from The Sketch File 
was the inspiration for the layout of my card

I coloured Albert with my Flexmarkers, cut with a round Spellbinders Die
then inked with Old Photo Distress ink, whilst still in the die.

The sentiment is from LOTV, I stamped it with clear ink then
heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.
The ribbon is upcycled from a top & the buttons are from my stash.
Thanks for popping in today, I love it when you do!

Fall Colours

Good Morning all!
I've finally managed to sort out all the wobbling about on my blog &get 
all my little friends & followers faces back to the top!
I do so love seeing everyone when I go to my page, 

The card I have to share today is my second GDT card for

I have truly enjoyed being a Step Sister this month! 
Thank you all so much for inviting me!

The theme for this challenge is 
Here's my card!

I used a Kraft CS 6x6in base.
I embossed a mat of Ivory paper with the Creative Expressions
 Leaves Mask then added Vintage Photo & Tea Dye Distress Inks.
The burlap/hessian was part of a fabulous blog candy I won earlier this year.
The felt flowers are from my stash as is the leaf trim.
The sentiment stamp is from a Do Crafts See D's set.
I stamped it with clear ink then heat embossed with 
Papermania copper embossing powder
This card was inspired by the photo over at 

On the inside of the card, I added another mat of the 
embossed ivory paper. Whilst embossing,I tried to block of the middle section 
with a piece of CS to leave a plain panel to write on but
 it didn't work quite as well as I planned so I had to add
another little mat of plain cs.

I really enjoyed making this card, I hope you like it!

Think Pink

Hi all, here I am with my DT Inspiration card for this months
Think Pink 
challenge at The Crafting Cafe.
Here's my card

I've used  the pretty Happy Little Mermaid Stamp from our sponsor
To make my little Shaker Step Card.
The paper I have used is by Papermania.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers, Flexmarkers & a Sakura
Glitter Gel pen. The little beads & hearts are from my stash 
as are the little padded hearts on the front.
The sentiment was done on my pc using a free font called
Seaweed Script, you can find it here.

I hope you will take the Breast Cancer Awareness message behind

changes or abnormalities. Not sure how? Look here for more information
