Wedding card

April 20, 2011

Ok so it’s time again for the new challenge at Fab ‘n’ Funky Challenges and this weeks theme is:

‘Here Comes The Bride’

Well this week this challenge was just perfect for me as my cousin is getting married in June and i needed to get a card made for her and her future husband.  Now I won’t be in a rush like i usually am at the last minute.

Ok so here is my card:


The silver card I have had a long time and i love this card so tend to use it sparingly as not sure when i will get anything like it again.

It’s time again for the challenge at Creative Card Crew and this we the challenge is:


Well I think the title says it all.  We have to make our project recycling something.

And our sponsor this week is:

Paper Pretties is a full-service online crafting store, and home to Sophia and Cooper – the cutest kid stamps around! (At least we think so). We have many exclusive stamp lines, from elegant to whimsical, sweet to clever; there is something for every stamper in our Prettie Boutique!  The prize is a stamp set!

Ok so here is my creation.

I decided to recycle bits from a card i received a long while ago now.  I always save my cards and sometimes use bit off of them at a lot later date after i have enjoyed them for a while.

I decided not to make too much of a fussy card this time as i wanted to enjoy the elements that i had chosen from my source.  I hope you like it

Ok so here is  my creation for this week


I’m not entirely happy with the way this card came out, but it’s definitely better than some of the attempts I made.  I seem to be lacking a bit of mojo this week.

But here we go with this weeks challenge.

Make it Girly

March 9, 2011

It’s time again for the challenge at Fab ‘n’ Funky challenges and this weeks challenge is:

"Make it Girly"

Our sponsor this week is Pink Cat Studios

For this weeks card I decided I was going to have a play at making a Drawer easel card, something i have seen blog hopping but wasn’t sure how to go about it.

So as a challenge to myself I sat down and had a play with making my own.  This took many attempts at trying to get the measurements right but finally I think I managed to do it.

Here is the finished drawer card I made.



Hopefully when I get the chance this week I will try and do a tutorial for this card with my measurements.

LIM Pastels #2

March 7, 2011

Well I wasn’t really happy with the last card so I decided to have another play and see what else i could do with pastels and here is my second try


I found some nice white embossed paper in my stash and coloured in the flowers and leaves with versa color.  I decided to try and colour match the ribbon by using copic marker to change the colour of the white ribbon
