Card for a boy, makes a change.


Well been having a play again today, as the weather is terrible, not a lot else to do. Used the new digi's I purchased from,
 http://saturated-canary.myshopify.com/. Just have a few pro markers, so deciding just to use colours that go together at the moment, to get the best out of the card and backing papers I have. A few blogs have given me some inspiration today, so I will pop in and join there challenges. Thanks for looking and the lovely comments are spurring me on. xxx

Freebie from Saturated Canary. Love It x

The other day was flicking through the blogs and came across this freebie from http://www.saturatedcanary.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/xoxo.html . Fell in love with her so just had to have, but was very naughty and bought some more digi's from there site. So had a play and came up with this card, very happy with it, for a change.

Well what a weird day it has been, just not myself since lost me job.  Ryan me son had an exam today at university, he still lives at home, so with this weather got up early at six just to make sure he was up and ready. So I decided to have a crafting day to cheer myself up, began with some knitting in the morning, then once did daily chores, made some cards. Hunted out some of my papercraft cd roms and found Seraphina and Friends. Was a CD I loved on C&C but never got around to using it, so had some fun and here is the first, actually made inserts too xx  My cards don't seem to be to the standard of people on here, but I enjoy and have fun xx

Recyling Again!!

I am a bit hard up for pennies at the min, so my cards are going to have to be made using xmas cards or tags at the mo. I don't sell mine, its all just for fun. Found these tags in me stash, think I got them ages ago in a sale at W H Smith. So thought they would look nice paired up with the papers I purchased from

http://www.digistampboutique.co.uk/catalog/digital-papers-c-251.html. Used Spellbinders Eyelet circle set for the die cut. Not the best of pictures do to the weather. The weather has not helped much today, went out in car and brakes have bust with the cold, not what I need at min, but am getting used to this bad luck streak xxxxx Anyway lets see if my luck changes, will enter into some challenges xx

These have helped me get back into the swing of things, so will start of with my first of many cards. Not the best of pics, need to get used to new phone and comp. this was made following the sketch from The Cutie Pie Challenge. Made this card from very old paper stash, used cuttlebug to emboss and image is from http://pinkgem-janet.blogspot.co.uk/, such a happy gingerbread man, coloured with promarkers.

Getting back into card making!!

well getting back into card making, unfortunately its because I have been made redundant, so got time on me hands, but it helps to pass the time away. Also had a good tidy out of crafting stuff yesterday and found papers and stash I had forgotten about. So I have decided to join in a few challenges just for fun xx
