Hi there,

This card is made for cutecard thursday who said "Make your card with a vacation, holiday or travel theme". Apology's for the photo still not got a new camera and couldn't scan it due to the large embellishments. The bikini is paper pieced but it doesn't show up to well. The blue shell is off a childs bracelet and picked up the flip flops at a craft show. Added a few raindrop gems as it's a UK holiday and I reckcon the image counts as cute because any bikini that small has got to be cute lol!

Hi there,

This card is for daringcardmakers challenge this week. Mel set the challenge inspired by the book by Graeme Base called 'Animalia' . This is also an animated series which my boys both love and is being rerun at the moment so I had to have a go. The image is by the talented Kerry Jo who just has a new line of stamps out. She gave this image away a while ago on her blog and this was the perfect oppourtunity to use it. The giraffe paper is by Marie Stones and is avaliable for free here. The flowers and accent sticker are papermania. I think this giraffe looks like he's enjoying his flowery lunch lol.

Penny black

HI There,

A very quick card today ( about 20 mins worth which is super quick for me) for the Penny Black S challenge over on Docrafts. The extra challenge was to use chalks so I stamped the image (strange brew) with a clear embossing ink and coloured it with chalks to make it pop. Spooky was cut on the cricut. Backing paper Mad about Cards.

In the Garden

Hi there
This card is for the cutecard thursday challenge in the garden. I used this tilda image that I recieved in a forum swap. Silly me though didn't think about the garland until I had already started cutting out the image so I cut out the flowers and drew the garland back in with a gel pen. The image is a bit blurred as I couldn't get it to scan straight so I resorted to my camera and all the pictures I take are blurred, thats why I make cards and don't scrap lol. You can't see it but the little message inside the shaker flower says 'garden' but not a chance I'd ever get that in focus.

Funky Fairy Meets Dottie!

Hi there,

Wow can't believe I haven't managed to blog for a week (a lot going on at home) but at last a day to call my own. I made this card for Funky fairies challenge where Han said:

"I decided to do something with Dots, hence the title "Going Dotty". Just use some kind of dots or spots on your projects."

Well what other image could I use for this than Dottie by Louise Brigden. I printed the sentiment arrows using word art and the green rings and dots are hole reinforcers . I doodled around the edge of the card and doodled dots onto the sentiment arrows. The spotty circles and frame are funky fairy Doodlementals . I toyed with the idea of putting get well soon on the front but decided to put get well soon on the inside instead.
