WOJ Heathers Sketch

Here is my interpretation of Heathers sketch which I adored using over on WOJ Challenge blog this week. I have used my distressed inks to colour in this lovely image of Melinda blowing kisses which I received as a RAK. I am going to add flock to the wings (once the delievery turns up- but I wanted to show you the card). The papers are basic grey sultry. I am trying to use up papers at the moment as I have lots of packs with just a few sheets left in them - Am I the only one whom doesn't like every sheet in the packs? I always end up with odd patterns I am not sure what to do with! Anyway I hope you like the card.

Friday Sketchers

Well I have tried a plain background to see if blogger is any better but I am still only getting codes for photos - grr.

Here is my entry for friday sketchers. I have rotated the sketch 180 degrees as the bottom edge was not very clean cut! The image is a RAK of a Sarah Kay I think from Cathy. The papers are basic grey Merakesh and the flowers are prima. The roses are hobbycraft and the gems are stash. I hope you like it, sorry for the poor photo quality but it really dark and raining here today and this was the best I could get.

ABC Design Team Card. T is for

Two tone.

I adore this image of Daisy from Sugar Nellie, yet I seem to have neglected her of late. She has been coloured up using distressed inks and then mounted using nesties label 3. The papers are 2 packs of K and Co - Daisy and the other is Mortifica. I have used a prima daisy and the other two layers I have punched out using the background papers. The ribbon and eyelet are stash. I hope you like, do check out the other design teams blog and Fiona, whom makes her last card for us as the gdt member for June.

Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog Design Team Call - Paper Piercing - and SSC

Hello All, I am back of holiday, did anyone miss me? As well as my design Team card, made using WOJ Melinda the helping Angel, I thought I would show you a picture of my boys on holiday.

My card was made using Basic Grey Papers from the Eva pad (plus a scrap of green I cannot remember which pad it is from in my scrap tray). I have used distressed inks on all that I have not paper pierced. I hope that you like my card as I really enjoyed making it.

eta just noticed Saturday secret crafter is green and pink so I am going to be cheeky and add this too.

Hope that everyone is well, hugs

ABC S is for

This is a scheduled post and as Blogger is still being funny fingers crossed it will work.

This week on ABC it is S is for Summer. So get out all your lovely summer stamps and papers and join us this week.

I have choosen to use this beautiful image from the Summer WOJ kit. I wanted to use vibrant citrus colours with her and as the image was so big after I masked her and added the orange tree (getting good at this and love the effect) I wanted the papers to be not too busy. I choose this loose sheet I think that is K and Co but not sure as it was part of a RAK and added to it plan card stock one of which I put through the cutterbug embossing folder bird and swirls.

I hope that you like it.

ABC R is for Roses

Helen kindly sorted out the ABC Challenge blog for me as all I can still see is codes when posting a post grr.

Here is R is for roses card. i have used one of my new WOJ Summer Willow stamps and coloured her in distressed inks. The papers are K and Co with roses on them which I felt was appropiate. The image and sentiment were cut out using my oval nesties.

CCT - punches

I already had this image painted up and tried to match the flower on the image with the flower on the card but I am not sure if I have succeeded or not, think I have gone OTT with the leaves. Not sure about the background sketch either I kinda just cut and stuck and hoped for the best. I may make another one though and re-enter if I am able - illness allowing.

Firstly a massive thank you to everyone whom left very lind messages. I am managing to do what I can when I can but I ache so much today and I am so tired, I have no energy but trying to do what I can for the boys sake. Ed is off nursery today for voting and so it is extra hard entertaining them, thank goodness it is sunny. We are also potty training oh the joys!

ABC Q is for Quilted

Hello all, so sorry I am awol at the moment. I hope this card loads properly I am having so many problems with blogger at the moment. All cards when loading are streams of http letters and numbers and everytime I try and leave comments I am getting stuck or thrown out completely. I am also struggling to make cards as my hands are aching in the joints, have tests coming up but it hurts to type and colour so please still visit me and I will try and visit you back as and when I am able.
This lovely image had been coloured in distressed inks and mounted onto two sheets of basic grey paper that has been cut into 3cm squares and then faux stitched in red. I hope you like it.
