I Love Promarkers Challenge Card

While hopping about on Blogger and Facebook I found this new challenge blog - I love Promarkers - well as I do love them I thought I'd attempt another card and here it is. There is a sketch to follow and very nice it is too. Image is the very lovely Olive from Digistamp Boutique, papers are called Soda Shop by Mechelle Conrad, sentiment is Elzybells and of course coloured with the fandabby Promarkers.

Photo is a tad pale - sorry once more.
Thanks for visiting and now I must have a lie down having made my quota of cards for the month in 2

Sketch Saturday Challenge Card - whoo hoo!!

Well I don't know how long it's been since I made a challenge card but I saw the sketch on and thought I would give it a try. Lovely sketch to follow and gave me a chance to use my new paper download bought this morning from Sweet Shoppe Designs. These are called Sweetness and are by Christy Lyle - very pretty I thought.

Gorjuss was stamped and cut out - coloured with Promarkers and then layered onto the paper. The fabric leaf ribbon has been lurking in my stash for ages just waiting for an airing so with the punched flowers it looks just about right. Pearls for the centres, Elzybells sentiment and that's about it I think.

Thanks for coming to visit.

Flowers and mistakes!

Hi there. Another weekend nearly over but at least I've managed one card at last. I was surfing about this morning and one thing leads to another and these lovely freebies popped up here. Lovely web site with a great range of downloads which I shall be looking at shortly. It's been ages since I did any cutting out and it shows but it passed the time quite nicely. The flowers were already coloured so I just used a Stardust clear pen to add some sparkle in the centres and round the edges of the petals. The lovely paper is just punched with an SU scalloped border punch. The centre of the flowers are just dollops of liquid pearls which were wet when the photo was taken. My usual crappy photo taking doesn't show it at it's best!

Mistake was the embossed centre panel which I put through my Sizzix back to front and as it was the only piece of cream pearl card I had I decided to leave it debossed Not decided on a sentiment yet - just have to see what occasion comes along first.

Thanks for looking and hope you've all had a good weekend.

My first bag

Hi - I've had a hankering to make a bag after seeing so many lovely ones around on various blogs and this is my first. Thanks so much to Mandy who has been so helpful with her advice. Please visit her blog for lots of wonderful inspiration and fab creations. Sorry about the terrible photo at the bottom - the light was rubbish but I wanted to get them on here tonight.

I'm sitting here munching my way through a packet of jelly babies which were supposed to go inside the bag!......oh well - there's always time to get something else to go in it.

Thanks for visiting.
