Elzybells Challenge - Polka Dots

Well this is a first for me - posting a card before I go off to work! Started it last night and have just finished it off. Using my new mini messages again and my new Sizzix flourish die which I've chopped into bits because it's rather on the large side. It looks a bit bare at the bottom but I think less is more in this case - in other words I can't think of anything to put there that wouldn't spoil it!! Thanks for looking.

New Home Card with New Stamps

Well I've been on holiday this week and the weather has been superb. Haven't done a lot of crafting but I was itching to use my new Elzybells stamps which I've treated myself to. So today I got my bum in gear and made this. It was a bit of an experiment for me as I've never made an aperture card before but I'm right pleased with how it's turned out.

Card stock is SU - paper is Zoe Pearns Cottage Garden which I love - stamp is one of the lovely new mini messages - 'a little hello' as is the sentiment. There are oodles of great little stamps and sentiments on the one sheet and something for every occasion. I shall be using these a lot.

Thanks for looking.

Elzybells Sketch Challenge

I can't remember the last time I managed to make a challenge card but when I saw this great sketch by Michelle on the Elzybells blog I thought I'd give it a go. This is the first time I've used the little dog and he stamped beautifully. Papers are a Kay Miller download and sentiment is Elzybells of course.

Oh no.......another one!

Actually did make this today - just one of the cards from my fairy kit which was embossed so I chalked it - added a few buttons here and there and one of the little diecut fairies decoupaged. Teeny bit of glamour dust and now trying to decide where I can put a sentiment but that can wait.

More Fairies

Good Sunday afternoon just to you all. Lovely sunny day but golly what a strong wind - glad to be inside. Made this little card over the week and finished it off yesterday - I have Donna to thank for the inspiration for this card. I saw one on her blog and knew as soon as I got my Nesties that I must have a go at making one. It turned out ok but even with the biggest nestie it's still a tiny card so I just used one of my fairy stickers in the middle - the edges are chalked but so pale you can't tell and just some liquid pearls around the centre. Two bows as I couldn't tie one between the holes I'd punched - much easier going through one hole!!

Thanks for looking.

Fairy and Forever Friends Birthday Card

Can't resist a bargain and when I saw this kit on C&C I treated myself. Easy peasy quick cards as it's all diecut decoupage and preprinted cards so if I need one in a hurry my problem is solved. Just added a bit of glamour dust on the fairy's dress and wings and one more little butterfly sticker. Couldn't get over the amount of stuff in the kit - excellent value considering what it cost originally. Very pleased with this even if it is cheating a

Golly it's been a long time coming but I had to make a card for a friend at work who's birthday it is this week. Until now I hadn't been able to afford any Nesties but now I've finally got some and I'm really pleased with how they enhance the images. FF stamped image was coloured with Promarkers and Sakura glaze on the crown. Papers are from a FF paper pad, sentiment I think is Elzybells and little pearlescent punched daisies.

Thanks for looking.
