Latte Anyone?

I love the sketch over at Sketch Saturday this week...

so I rotated it and here is the card I came up with! Papers, stamps and boarder punch are all the result of Ally Pally at the weekend!


This week's challenge over at Charisma Cardz was 'Getting Sporty' so I got my golf stamps out again! I based it on a sketch by A Spoon Full of Sugar but was a bit to late to enter the challenge!

Christmas Box in a bag

This week's project over at Project Tuesday was to make a box in a bag. I chose Christmas themed papers as I'm starting to think about what Christmas gifts I can make this year - I really like this one (plus it was easy to make too! Always a bonus!)

Thanks for looking!

A very quick make...

...while I was supposed to me peeling potatoes, card making is sooooo much more fun. Anyway, this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch...

...and this is my card. Must dash as currently being shouted at as we're going out in 10 mins and I'm not ready!

Birthday Beer!

I needed some male cards for my card basket so I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch...

...and came up with this. For some reason I struggled a bit with this sketch, clearly I should have looked at the DT cards first!

70 & 80 years young!

I had a card commission to make two cards, one for a male turning 80 and one for a lady turning 70. I thought I would use this week's Papertake Weekly sketch...

...and these are the two cards I came up with.

This one is obviously right on the sketch

whereas I rotated the sketch for this one and didn't quite follow it. The card was inspired by it though! I've used the new Itty Bitty Buds hostess set from the new catalogue for this one

Thanks for looking!

My Favourite Colours

Yet another card combining 2 challenges in one! This week Our Creative Corner had a yummy colour combo challenge of light pink, hot pink, white & chocolate chip, which as you can tell from the title are my favourite colours, so I mixed it with this week's Sketch Saturday sketch...

...and this was my creation! I used my favourite stamp set 'Crazy for Cupcakes' so it was a card made with many favourites!

Thanks for looking x

2 Sketches 4 You

This week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch...

...and a wedding card, for our friends who are getting married next week. The photos don't really do it justice as the soft colours haven't come out that well and neither has the vellum background, but trust me it's lovely!

Friday Sketchers

A bit of a different sketch this week over at Friday Sketchers...

...and this is what I came up with! It is a bit out of my comfort zone but I actually quite like it! What do you think?

Two challenges in one (again!)

I used this week's Papertake Weekly sketch...

...and mixed it with Charisma Cardz' challenge which this week is...can anybody guess? Patchwork! I used the most patchworky background paper I could find and also used my most patchworky stamp and this is what I came up with...

The paper was so busy I didn't want to add any extra embellishments to the card for fearing it would be too busy but kinda wishing I had now!

Sketch Saturday DT Call

Well after a few fabulous days in Portugal I am back all refreshed and to top it all off Sketch Saturday have a DT call which I am hoping to be considered for! Sketch Saturday is my absolutely favourite sketch challenge out there in blogland and it would be really fab to be considered. Here is the sketch...

...and here is my card! I just hope it is good enough!

Wish me luck everyone!

This week's sketch...
...and my card!

Monday, 7 September 2009


I have been looking for an excuse to use my new Fairy Princess stamp and the challenge over at Papertake Weekly gave me just the opportunity! I used the sketch over at Truly Scrumptious for inspiration. Here is the sketch...

...and here is my card! Very girly and I know just the little girl to give it too, shame her birthday isn't until January!

Close up of all the pretty bits...

...and (very exciting) Truly Scrumptious have a Guest Designer slot which I'm hoping to be considered for! Fingers crossed!

Well I feel that I have been a bit of a bad blogger recently...I've had sooooooo much on, work is a bit mad, and then there was my class this weekend to prepare for and if that wasn't enough I hosted a shoe box swap this weekend too! (photos to follow) A LOT of preparation was needed for those two things so there has been little time for anything else but I am back today with a vengeance! I have made about 10 cards today!

Here is the Sketch and Stash challenge sketch...

...combined with the 'Sunflowers' challenge over on Daring Cardmakers. Sunflowers? I wasn't sure where to start with that one so I raided my stash for some goodies and here is what I came up with...

My neglected stash item is pretty much everything on this card! The flowers for one but most especially the glittery yellow flowers background paper which I have had for years but never found a use for!
