Hi peeps
Just a quick visit to display my latest card! I used a Sarah Kay image (adorable stamps!) and created this one last night for the challenge at Spectrum Noir. As always, their pens must be used in colouring (which I used and love using!) and I never go OTT with the bling on cards. As you must know by now I do prefer a more CAS style of card but when I do make a "fancy" one, it isn't OVER fancy!!! I love how other cardmakers can make really fussy cards! I just can not do it!

My cutie card!

Birthday Millie

Good afternoon all!
It's friday again and I believe its poets' day - well, it used to be when I was in work!!!
Had a lovely morning being pampered at the hairdressers with the son this morning - chop, chop and it looks soooo much better. My hair was getting to that point where it just won't do what it's told anymore except drive me mental! Anyway, all sorted now (and the son's had his done too!!!)

This card, which i started last night, is a cute image of Millie from Pink Gem Designs and I'm entering her into the challenges at Sketch n Stash. For the paper I used my brand new pad from First Edition - Love Letters by Mindy Terasawa. It's new to me as I bought it from another crafter online so it's kind of new/old if you see what I mean!

Here's the sketch :

Tick Tock

Morning peeps.
Had a brilliant meal at San Marco Trattoria last night for the daughters' 28th birthday.
I absolutely adore that restaurant! We've been several times now and it has not let us down in any way - hope that continues!

Onto this mornings project.
A little card I made initially for one challenge but realised it would fit in nicely in 3 others too!

This cutey is for :-

The Outlawz - Wednesday Sketch
Divas By Design - In the pink
Mod Squad challenge - non-traditional card
Stampotique Designers challenge - pink & orange background

My clockface and sentiment is from a cling stamp from InkyDoodles and I thought it suited this card.
The challenge at Mod Squad requires a masculine card with female elements and the clocks and cogs theme is usually aimed at men so i think the finished card works nicely into that idea.
I also liked the idea that the main colour focus of it is pink but the cute little flower print fits the orange requirement in the Stampotique challenge and of course mainly pink for the Divas and obviously the sketch for The Outlawz!
Phew!!! All in all a busy morning of creativity.
So now it must be time for a tea break!!!

Oh Happy Day!!!

Hello all, judging by the title of this post I guess you might all think that today is a special day.
Well, it is! 28 years ago today I gave birth to my firstborn so it truly is a happy day as I could not wish for a better daughter than the one I've got!!!
Plus, going out for dinner as a family later makes me smile too!!!

So, down to business.

Todays card is an image which I purchased from From the Heart Stamps and is called Whimsy Garden Fence and I love it! It's a really cute image and super easy to colour using the old faithful SN markers!

I'm entering it into the following challenges :-

From The Heart Stamps stamp of the month challenge
Penny's paper crafty challenge #176
Crafty Little Fairies - In the Garden
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes
