Diddy Notecards and Box

I'm always short of a little notecard when I need one so thought I'd make a few teeny ones and a little box to keep them in. These are 3x3 and I did start off with 8 but ended up with 6! Just very simple - some are embossed with various CB folders, others are textured card and one I just put some patterned paper on cos I felt like it! Elzybells stamps used for everything. The box lid just slips behind the flower and stays put nicely. Oh the patterned paper on the box is SU.

Many thanks to my friend Mandy who very kindly sent me some diddy envies so I didn't have to muck about making them. Much appreciated.

Thanks for visiting.

Digital Tuesday Challenge card

Afternoon to you. We have lovely sun but it's a tad chilly in the shade - all in all it's been a great week to be on holiday. I bought a few of the new cute images from CC Designs - you can purchase them here - and couldn't resist this one although I don't make Halloween cards normally. The Challenge from Digital Tuesday this week is 'All about the kids' so I think he fits the bill perfectly.

Kept it as simple as me! - black card which has been embossed down the side but doesn't show up. Image is coloured with PMs, spiders were a wide ribbon I had so cut out 2 circles and stuck them on and the Boo is cut from an old Sizzlets alpha set I have.

Thanks for visiting.

Birthday/Friday Sketchers Challenge card

Evening - well it's turned out to be a scorcher today but cooling down nicely now. Made this the other day for my lovely Italian friend at work and didn't want to post it until I was sure she had received it.

Nice, straightforward sketch to follow on Friday Sketchers although I have twisted it as the image was larger than I had intended making it. Hippy Chic is another great image from Sassy Studio Designs - cut her out which was a little fiddly round the hands and hair but at least I could put her onto a background dark enough to show her off. Coloured with promarkers and the papers are K&Co Sparkly Sweet. A few punched flowers and some glamour dust sprinked hither and thither and Happy Birthday in Italian.

Thanks for visiting.

Birthday/Challenge card

Well it's the first day of my weeks holiday and I have 3 cards I need to make so I am trying to incorporate them into some of the challenges on the go. This one is for my sister who I know won't see it so that's ok. I'd like to enter this for the Stampin for the Weekend Challenge which is to use the colours pink, orange and teal.

Image is a digi download from Sassy Studio Designs - I thought she was so serene and peaceful that it would make my sister laugh as she definately is not! Cardstock is SU in teal, papers are Basic Grey and image coloured with Pros. Photo makes the teal look very dark but it's much lighter in real life.

Now onwards and upwards to get the other 2 I need to send off this week made.
