Well tomorrow is my mom's birthday, and i will be traveling to London to meet some friend's. So today my hubby and me took my mom and dad out for dinner, and i gave her her present, and have started her in the Kipling handbag club, she opened her card and loved it.

I have used Lili of the Valley Mom stamp, coloured in with Promarkers ( as normal at the moment), paper are from DCWV, but i can't remember which stack, ribbon, flowers and banner from craft stash.

Hope you like it as much as my mom.

New challenge and blog candy

I can not believe it been over a week since my last post, where does the time go. It only a quick post today as I'm off out on a girlie night to see the new sex and the city movie, anyway to my card. A friend asked me to make her sister a card for her birthday, and she said anything goes, which is great for me as that's the name of this weeks Passion for Promarks challenge.

I have used Lili of the valley's stamp, coloured in using promarkers, Papermania Amethyst Infusion paper, lilac sticky ribbon and flower and brad from my craft stash, the happy birthday banner was a stamp from Little Claire.

I love Lili of the valley products and i love blog candy, so when the two are combined it's great. They are giving away a full set of 12 stamps, check out there blog here lili of the Valley.

i said it was a quick one tonight, hope you like the card.

Blue for a change

Well i have enjoyed the first of my two days off making lots of cards and blog hopping, i have found a couple of new blogs that i like the look of, and some new challenge blogs, one i have decided to enter today. Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge. There challenge is a sketch challenge, and here is my entry

die cut but I like sketch challenge's as they make think, i have to use more colours, papers and any else i can find in my craft stash. So for today card i have used Daisy the camper van stamp from Little Claire Designs, coloured in using promarkers and again in my new favour it colour of the moment blue, and cut out with nestabilities - classic scalloped circles large, the paper is DCWV, flowers, card stock from my craft stash, brads are from Papermania Glitter brads and the swirls the top right corner and bottom left, i used a Sizzixdon't know what it's called as i have had it for so long, but cut them out in blue glitter card

I do have a top tip for you today. I have been making a card for a friend, she loves glitter and i had finished making the my stamped image kept falling off. A couple of weeks ago i went to the Secret Crafter shop as it's only 10 minuets away from me, and told me about Collall Photoglue, they said it will stick anything - and there were right. I used it on the card (after it had fell off 3 times) and it works (it hasn't fell off all afternoon). So now I'm really happy and thought I'd should pass the information on to fellow crafter.

Hope you like the new card until next time

A new challenge

I have finally made my new challenge card for the Secret Crafter - Saturday blog challenge 82 - 3 embellishments, 2 papers, 1 image. I have been finding it hard the last couple of weeks to have any crafty mojo, but i hope it back this week. I have a real blue theme going on, i really love the duckegg blue promarker and i have found some really great papers that i had tucked away in the cupboard.

so for this weeks challenge i have used Pollycraft's shorbet - daydream stamp, coloured in using promorker(duckegg blue), papers are from Docarfts Big one (over 200 papers) silver mirror card, flower, ribbon and gems from my craft stash. Hope you like it, i will be back later in the week with some new cards as i have booked a couple of days off, so I'm planning on card making.

New Baby

I can not believe that a week has gone by and i haven't posted a new card, i feel like my creativeness had gone on a walk this week, this is the first week that i haven't entered a challenge. I have made lots of cards but nothing i would enter, my card that i made for the Pollycraft challenge - make your own flowers was going really well until i stared having problems with the ribbon, so i decided to leave it for this week. I have made a new baby card from my friend, this is her third boy, she was hoping for a girl.

I have used the Pollycraft Freebie Willie, coloured in using promarkers, background paper from buzzcraft, buttons, banner and ribbon from my craft stash. I do like this card it is one of my better cards made this weekend. Here is another card that i think worked out ok.

I have used Pollycraft's Sherbet - Seeds of Love, (one of the many new stamps i have purchased this week), coloured in using promarkers, DCWV butterfly background paper and the butterfly punch from Docrafts. Hope you like them.
