Today is my birthday, I am 41 today.......I'm lucky to share my birthday with two special people. Firstly my friend Lisa who I went everywhere with thorough school with so we have known each other for about 26 years. Next its my handsome friend Mark's 50th birthday..... today's cheeky card was made for him. 

I have to be honest, I'm not sure where I purchased this image from......if anyone can help please as I would to leave a link here for it.

Well I'm going out for lunch today with my friend and mum, then poo I'm off to work at 3pm for a short shift.

Hope everyone has a great day, got more cards to share soon.

deconstructed sketch #39

I'm so glad its the weekend.
 This weekend I'm promising myself so time out, as I'm shattered. Mum popped over yesterday while I was at work and did the housework, so only got the ironing to do this weekend......although I hate ironing, I'm glad Ive only got the one chore to do this weekend

Well onto my card for Jen's sketch challenge, such a lovely sketch

The card features an image from Saturated Canary. I love the card but wish I had made the broad vertical piece behind the circle a little wider as its has sort of disappeared behind the ribbon, rose, circle and sentiment. This card contains lots of hand sewing too its quite effective but took so long to do. I also distressed the edges of the papers with the edge of my scissors so thought I would enter it also in the Passion for Promarkers Challenge, which is distressing, its the first time I've entered this challenge.

thanks for all the lovely comments

Hope you all have a fab weekend

sweet and simply

Todays card is very simple card, just a bit stamping, colouring and doodling. The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and I have coloured with Promarker, with a little sparkle added. 

I'm so tired at the moment, but I'm off work in two weeks looking forward to getting more crafting done and to join in more challenges. 
Have a good Wednesday, be careful out there

A relaxing Sunday

Well Its Sunday, day of rest and all that. Its very chilly here on the coast in the North East, so after a quick coffee I'll wrap up warm and take the hound for a brisk walk. Then when I get back going to spend day in the house, tidying, cooking and hopefully start on a massive card order of 30 cards.

Todays card features a freebie image from Krista at Saturated Canary, she sooo cute. Krista has some new images out on Monday........might have to sit on my hands.

Too late

Poo!!! made up a card with the coloured image that was on my desk yesterday, together using the patterned papers too. Also I used Jens sketch # 37 from Deconstructed sketches, but when I looked to upload I had missed the deadline......anyway thought I would post it anyway. It features Wryn, find it here, shes coloured with Promarkers, added a few scraps of patterned papers from my scrap box, the sentiment is from Lilli of the Valley, also added string, roses and a bit of bling. Viola!!
