I only have one week to go until my next craft show at the red cone. It is there spring craft weekend and as well as entering challenges for Just cute bears challenge and pollycraft i have been busy making cards for the show. I have been having a go at some newtechniques like making waterfall cards and using watercolours, here are some of my new additions, hope you like them.
This is my first attempt at a waterfall card.
One of my mothers day cards and a card for my hubby's friend's mom's 50th from her dad, that she asked me to make for her.
I have decided to have a go at the next Just Cute Bears Challenge no 6 Mint and Brown combo. I really enjoyed the last weeks challenge lilac, but i only have one bear stamp, as i have only just into rubber stamping. I have used the same stamp as last time the forever friends stamp from docafts, also from docrafts i have used mint ribbon, paper is from DCWV's Sweet range, flowers from bee crafty in bloom and nestabilitiesclassic scalloped circles large. I have had great fun this morning make the card, hope you like it.
I have decided to have a go at doing the Just Cute Bears Challenge no 5 lilac, this is my first time at entering there challenge. i liked this challenge as it has done in lilac, and that's my favour it colour. I have used Forever friends Stamp that came with the November/December issue of Docrafts Creativity magazine, paper from docrafts spring burst range, lilac card stock, flowers and ribbon from my local craft shop. Hope you like it.
I thought I'd have a go at the Pollycraft challenge again, this time it's called double up. I decided to use Albert and Wilbur, i purchased this for my friends son's birthday and thought it was really cute. I have used paper from the Docrafts new range called Honey and Hugs, Nestabilities labels three, pink ribbon from my local craft shop, flowers from Bee Crafty's blooms range. hope you like it.
Just thought I'd share with you the card my hubby made for valentines day for me, he is still new to card making but he has a go on every occasion like Christmas, my birthday, valentines etc...... and i think he has done a really good job, hope you like it to. x
I am doing the craft show at the Red cone again this year, and i only have 3 weeks to go, and with all the birthday card i and making at the moment, i am running a bit behind, but i am having lot of fun making the birthday card for friends and family. I am still in to Pollycraft and i have brought some water colour pencils, here is a card i have made from my mom's friend's birthday this week.
I have used Cherry Kiss - remembering frames and paper from the forever friends range with a flower from, the bee crafty ranger.
i have also made a card for my friend's son who is 4 this week, boys and men are really hard to make for so i brought Woof from the pollycraft range. I also used paper from Lilli of the valley's pets range with frames from nestabilities.
my final card that i made this week end was my hubby's valentines card, i used Cherry Kiss - frames adore, with red glitter card, forever friends backing paper and a valentines banner. I hope you like my new cards, see you soon.
As promised i have a picture from Edinburgh, i took with me my Bee crafty bag and got my hubby to take pictures of me with it. I have entered to Bee crafty competition, here i am out side Edinburgh castle.
As promised i have a picture of some of my latest cards, i have gone a bit pollycraft mad at the moment, and have used jenson who is one of Pollycrafts newest arrivals, and this card was made for my friends son who was 6 last week. I then decided to use cherry Kiss - frames remembering, for my sister in law who's birthday it was in the last couple of days. l liked the idea of doing a winter themed card due to the snow we had this week.I will hopefully be able to bring you a picture of my time in Edinburgh with my beecrafty bag, and some more card pictures in the come days. Hope you like my latest cards.
Well it was my birthday on Thursday, and i decided to spend it on holiday in Edinburgh with my lovely hubby. We had a great time going to the zoo and the castle and we spent lots of time walking around (shopping) no crafts unfortunately. I haven't got any pictures at the moment but i will try and put some tomorrow, i took my Beecrafty bag with me so i am going to try and enter there bag competition. I have also had some more birthdays while i have been away so i will post some new card pictures tomorrow also.
