Hi there!
Here is a card that I made using my Wellington CD Rom:

I used a decoupage image:

I also used Glossy Accents and SU candy dots, ribbon and wooden embellishment.
The sentiment is Woodware 'make a wish' stamp set.


There are lots of lovely images on this CD so you will probably see it again soon!
Thanks for visiting.

Good evening.
Today's card is made using DigiStamp Boutique 'CUTE UNICORN' image which is only £0.42 for this weekend only:

I have a major problem with my digital images, since buying a new printer I can't use my Promarkers as the black outline ink smudges.......Nooooo! If anyone knows how to fix this I would be very grateful!

So I used pencils to colour the image, Pink Petticoat papers and Glossy Accents and glitter.
The sentiment is Woodware 'Make a Wish' and the tinsel and silver cord are from my stash.


Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend.

Good afternoon.
I had the urge (thanks to Jules) to ink up a Penny Black stamp:

I used:
Penny Black 'Bee Coustume' 2243K
Bee stamp is Stamp n' Stor 'Bee Line'
Sentiment is Little Claire Designs
Pink Petticoat paper
Glossy Accents
Lace, Ribbon and gems from stash
Flowers from The Ribbon Girl

I made the card base myself but please don't look too closely as it is not very even!!

As you like it challenge 'fur or feathers and why'  although I used to keep chickens I now have a dog so it would have to be fur for me - much more love and fun!

I thoroughly enjoyed colouring this card as it made a nice change!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there!
I have made another card using my Crafters Companion 'Dowton Abbey' CD Rom:

I also used a piece of Forever Friends dotty paper and Glossy Accents. The ribbon is from my stash.


This CD Rom has lots of beautiful images in it and lots of very quick cards can be made using the toppers.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Good evening.
I have made a card for this weeks LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE 'Perfect holiday':

I paper pieced the caravan:

When our boys were younger we used to stay in a caravan in Cornwall on holiday - happy times!
I had an idea in my head to create a card with a photo on it so this is what I came up with.

I used:
Stampin' Up! 'You're Sublime stamp set (without the sentiment), 'On Film' Framelits dies, dotty paper, punch for the clouds and flowers.
Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die,
Label maker for the sentiment.

Looking at it now perhaps I should have made the photo frame a different colour to make it stand out more - what do you think?

Back to the drawing board!
Thanks for stopping by.

I'm back with my second entry to the LESS IS MORE 'Vehicles' challenge:

This time I used Stampin' Up! Guy Greetings stamp set and Arrows embossing folder (retired). I sponged the embossed section to try and make it look like a tyre tread.

So there are my CAS cards for today - I know that I still have a long way to go to get it right but I will keep trying!
 Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great weekend.



Good afternoon!
Here is the first of two cards which I am going to enter the LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE 'Vehicles':

I used Stampin' Up! The Sky Is The Limit stamp set and World Traveler embossing folder (both retired). I only stamped up part of the planes 'contrails' - had to look this word up as I didn't know what to call it! Apparently.....Those white streaks planes leave behind are actually artificial clouds. They're called contrails, which is a shortened version of the phrase “condensation trail." Airplane engines produce exhaust, just like car engines do. As hot exhaust gases escape from a plane, the water vapor in the fumes hits the air. So there you go!!!
Anyway I digress - then I coloured in my contrails with a chalk marker and circled my sentiment with a Stampin' Write marker but felt that it was too bold so I tried to soften it slightly with the chalk marker. This probably ruined the card but I will be back with my second entry shortly.

Hi there!
I have a digital card today:

I used  'Ool La La Creations - The Shawn Jenkins Collection' CD rom, Pink Petticoat sentiment, ribbon and candy dots from SU.


Short and sweet again today - thanks for visiting!

Hello and happy Saturday to you!
Today's card is an attempt at a CAS card:

I used:
The Gruffies and Happy Hoppers CDROM image coloured with pencils and Glossy Accents for the melon. Pink Petticoat sentiment punched with SU punches. Papertrey Ink embossing folder and SU edgelits die.


I am still determined to conquer the CAS look but it is soooo difficult!! I won't tell you how many times I moved things around on this card! 

Anyway thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great weekend.
