grandad card

Morning, Its a bit chilly here in the North East this week. So hopefully will get a few challenges and a bit of crafting done while weather is cold. Nothing better than keeping toastie and a constant supply of coffee, when its bitter cold outside.

Today's card is a commission, a friend of a friend requested a card for her grandad who's 80 years young, apparently loves gardening and especially his rose garden. So after a bit of a search for a digi stamp, as did have anything suitable I can across this image from Mo's digital pencil shop. I coloured it with Promarkers, the papers come from "October afternoon", added kraft, roses, seam binding, lots of stitching, mini alphas and some thicker numbers........its a bit chunky so it has to go in a box. 

Hope she likes it........I'm quite pleased with it.

Found Chance

WHOOP WHOOP!!! I've eventually found my camera, guess where it was?................would you believe it was buried in my scraps box, which was put away nicely under the bed, until I needed some orangish paper tonight.

So now I can upload my card for the ribbon girl challenge "pink and blue" and the sketch from CPS  . I've used a Saturated Canary image, lots of stitching, roses, pearls and seam binding. Was a bit chunky to scan so glad I found my camera, although cable did go missing briefly......well wasn't where I thought I'd left it.

thanks for looking, be back soon with some Valentines cards.......promise

I have been kind of busy lately ptting together a few Valentines cards, will share them later in week.......yikes It's Thursday already. Today's card features "rainy day" from Saturated Canary....find it here. I cant stop colouring these images and been tempted to buy more....tut tut. Thought I would enter this in the Saturated Canary Challenge, as I've used punched out butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch. Also a piece of gingham paper, a dollie from Sarahs Cards, and some seam binding from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

I seem to have misplaced my camera, had place upside down looking for it, so had to scan my image.

Saturated Canary......Would be rude not too

While catching up on my blog hopping, I found a few peeps had been using these fab images from Saturated Canary these are design by Krista Smith and can be found on her Esty site HERE. Also there is a blog challenge site to go along with images. So this weekend I purchased my first image.....after I printed out image I was  bit scared of colouring it as other peeps had done a fab job. I'm quite pleased with my 1st result although I think the hair needs a bit practice. I also checked out the challenge blog......and found a design team call, so thought why not so entering this card.

Ive used an image from Saturated Canary, papers from "echo park and crate", pink gems, seam binding and bit stickles to add sparkle. Image coloured with Promarkers.

and again

Twice in one day....
This blogging malarky is like buses, no posts for months then two come at once...haha

Now for sketch 3 on Lucy's blog, I know i do hear you say where is sketch 2.......thats on its way!!!

I've used in addition to Crate papers, stickers from the same range, some foam thickers, Martha Stewart butterfly punch and a bit of bling.............along with great sketch.



Heres my first card of the year. Sketch has come from Lucy's blog, HERE.......I simply adore her clean and simple approach to card making, she is sharing a sketch daily. I'm going to try and do each sketch using the same papers from Crate. Heres the first one, added some stitching, seam binding, die cut from paper range and a journalling stamp from "stamps away" which has been stamp in versamark and embossed in white. 

be back later with sketch 3.......just going to attempt sketch 2 and maybe the four sketch too.
