Another Rainy day Crafting

Well it's been another miserable weekend again weather wise.  Torrential rain yesterday and showers on and off all day today!  So as hubby is off fishing I thought a spell in the craft room seemed right.  I have been using the digital stamps from Crafts and Me and they are beautiful but I am so glad I bought some fine tips to go on my Promarkers.  They make colouring so much easier on these detailed stamps.

The first card is using Deevonne ....
and here she is in close up

The second card is a CHRISTMAS card.  Mean to be organised this year.  She is called Irish Christmas Fae
And in close up

I love Grown Up colouring in!

Thanks for looking. x

Rainy Day Crafting

Well, we have had an afternoon of torrential rain, thunder and lightning but it has cleared the air a little bit.  Might sleep a little better tonight!  So I made a couple of cards this afternoon for family birthdays. The first is for our Grand Nephew who will be one on Friday. A fabulous image from Mo Manning,
A real Biker Babe!

The second is for our Grand Niece

This is Sparkle the Unicorn from the Tiddlyinks Basement Store.  The paper is a freebie from Tiddlyinks blog.
Thanks for looking.x

Tiddly Inks Samples Show Off Challenge

No, I havn't dropped off the face of the earth but life and work seemed to take over and I'm afraid blogging took a back seat. But..... I was totally inspired by the Steampunk joint release from Tiddly Inks and MIC and just had to make a card.  This is the result with many more to come.  Hope you like it.

Baby Cards

A couple of cards I made today for my box at work using the 'bambino' digi stamp from Funky Kits and some downloaded background papers from Mad about Cards that I have had for ages!
Hope you like them and thanks for looking.

Teddy Bo Challenge 3

This is the card I have made for the challenge using Pink.  I have watercoloured the images using Aquamarkers
scribbled onto a tile and spritzed.  The card is quite flat as I will be posting it and charges for thicker cards are getting to be quite expensive!
Thanks for looking x

Another Adorable

Loved making this one and there are more images being released in March. Hooray!  I used my new Woodware Crafty edger punch with the ribbon cassette. Great once I worked out how to use it!!!!!
The images are available from Funky Kits.
Thanks for looking.

Special Thank You card

This is a card I have made for The Knit and Natter ladies who use our library.  They very kindly offered to knit some "In The Night Garden" characters for me to put in the children's library.  I have used a Teddy Bea image.  They are so nice to colour.

Teddy Bo Challenge 2

Teddy Bea looks like she is really chilling out at the end of a long day (the only thing missing is a glass of wine!)
The challenge was seeing double so two candles, two flowers two slippers!  The bath has been coated with glossy accents and the bubbles have a touch of sparkle.  I am really enjoying using these images and release day Tuesday is something to look forward too.
Thanks for looking.

Just had to make another card from these fab digital images from Funky kits.  This little girl is Joy and she really was a joy to colour!
I had plans to do so much today but felt a bit off this morning so did nothing.  Feeling a bit better now though
 just wish I could shake off this cold.  Fat chance of that though with everyone who comes into the library coughing and sneezing!!  Roll on Summer.

Some Sunday Afternoon Cards

In Between Washing, Ironing and making the Sunday Lunch I managed to make a couple of cards today!
The first is a Digi download from Funky kits called Grace and I must admit after making the card up I succumbed and bought more ........
Isn't she a little sweetheart.
The second card is from Tiddlyinks and I think I might add something else to it but not sure what yet!
I distressed the edges of the backing paper and map and I think it works quite well but it just needs a little extra something!
Thanks for looking.

Long Time No Blog

Things just got away from me over the last few weeks but I was inspired to make a card after buying some new digi stamps from TEDDY BO. I have made this one for a friend's Birthday and was really happy with the way it printed out so clearly. I am entering it in the first TEDDY BO Challenge.
