A Passion for Papertrey Challenge

Here is a card a made for a Passion for Papertrey's first challenge, Steph and Kate have set up a blog for all papertrey lovers in the UK and Europe, the challenge is to make an A6 card using papertrey products and the winner gets some yummy papertrey goodies. Now I only have some sentiments (wish I had lots more), but Steph said it is still ok to enter :), so I have used all SU papers and CS, the Baby sentiment is PTI and the other image is SU.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend, thank you for looking

2nd Attempt WOJ Challenge

If at first you don't succeed try again, so that is what I have done and at least this time I have got the sketch correct. This is for the WOJ challenge which is a gorgeous sketch. I have coloured my new WOJ charlotte with proMarkers, the spotty paper is papermania (scrumptious) and all of the CS and punches are SU, is it me or do the colours remind me of some sweets??? :)

Thank you for looking xxx

Chocolate box

I have made another box from Jules tutorial, but this time I have added some yummy chocs...well I say yummy but I have been ultra good and not even eat one of them....I am quite proud of myself with my diet this time and have lost 10lb so far, I saw Jules made one yesterday and she put posh M&S chocs in while mine are cheapo Lidl (99p a bag), I had the idea the cheaper the eggs the less likely I am to want one, but Dave eat one and said how nice they are :) the egg image is from the easter see Ds and the egg paper is DCWV, the ribbons are from my stash

This card was meant to be for the WOJ challenge but I messed up the sketch, so I am not going to enter it, I also saw that it was for a guest designer, so I decided I would not embarrass myself by entering, everyone else has stunning cards (yes I have such an inferior complex) oh well, I did get to use my new WOJ image that I had for valentines, she was a lot harder to colour than I had anticipated and this was my 4th attempt, the papers and CS are K&Co and SU

Thank you for looking xxx

All SU Box

This is my creation using the goodies Jules sent down with my SU order, I have added a few other bits and choped a few bits up but the whole of the box is used with SU papers and CS, ribbon and punches, it is meant to have chocolates inside but I am a diet and no chocolate is allowed in the house because it would end up in my belly :). The box template is here Jules has done a great tutorial and there are also other lovely creations made with SU products

Happy Birthday Emma

I made this card for Emma who's birthday it was yesterday, Happy Birthday Emma xx

I used an image given to me by Lynsey, I just love these images, I have decided instead of flowers and chocolates from Dave on Saturday (yeah in my dreams), I will let him buy me some of these or the new whiff of joy stamps which are out on Saturday. The papers and CS are all SU, the hodgepodge hardware is also from SU and the flowers are from my stash
Thank you for looking and all of your comments xx

Here is my card for Sketch Saturday, I have used an alota stamp coloured with proMarkers, the papers are papermania and the small butterflies are from my stash, I don't know if I am happy with this, there seems to be something missing, and you can not really tell that I have added a few butterflies to the net she is carrying, oh well, I am having a beat myself up day :)

Thank you for looking xxx

Friday Sketchers #38

Here is my card for Friday Sketchers with a few added bits :)
I was meant to be cleaning my craft room today but got that engrossed looking at blogs that the time just flew by.
I have used papermania (spring burst) papers, penny black image coloured with proMarkers and I have been brave and got my SU hodgepodge hardware out, it is so pretty in its own little box that it is such a shame to use any :)

Saturday, 7 February 2009

Can you believe it, I am actually in time for something, I thought I would get Dave's card done last night so here it is, I have used my lovely changito image and coloured with proMarkers and glaze pens, the papers are DCWV and the red cardstock is SU, the ribbon is from my stash

I have seen everyone decorating the insides of their cards so thought I would give it a go, I have used the same CS as in the front and used some DCWV stickers

Hope you enjoying your weekend so far, I am having a day in my craft room tomorrow, but it may be mainly to tidy it than make cards :)

Here is my card for Friday sketchers, this weeks sketch is hosted by Carole it is a lovely sketch. I have used some SU card for the card and K&Co papers, the image is alota and coloured with proMarkers and the rest is from my stash.
I hope you have all had a good weekend and are ready for the big freeze this week, take care everyone and don't forget to check on any eldery neighbours. Our snow has already started and I can see it being quite bad in the morning, luckily Dave is working from home tomorrow.
