.. to the lovely ladies over at the MSE forum that I've not been chatting on for ages for the lovely birthday cards I received on Monday - just gorgeous, thanks for remembering. xxx

Ooh thought I'd got the hang of this new blogger dashboard - but now its not letting me put pictures where I want to???  (Or is it user error ??? lol)

Also have a couple more cards to blog so I'll do this one tonight:

Oh now its letting me - I have no idea what I'm doing!!

Okey doke this is a cute Wee stamp coloured with promarkers - matted on to pink card and using echo park papers that I won from Michelle. 

Thank you (pah now its continuing the link???) and I have added pearls from my stash.

A card making frenzy...

... blooming heck that hasn't happened in a  long time and I've got the new Blogger dashboard thingy to content with and being a bit of a technophobe I have no idea if this is going to work - oh god why do things have to change???

Things have been a bit quiet in the card making department for a little while, I had a serious case of self doubt and kept seeing such lovely cards on blogs and thought mine could be nowhere near as good as them.  (Plus my cross-stitch had sort of taken over!!)

Anyhoo, I've got a few big birthdays coming up, so I gave myself a kick up the @rs* and told myself not to be silly, and cracked on with them - who cares if my cards will not be fantabulous - I enjoy making them and faffing on plus buying stash is always enjoyable. I'll blog a couple now and a couple later as not to bore the pants off you all:

Here's no 1:

This is for a family frient who is coming up to the tender age of 75, the image is  LOTV that came free with a magazine coloured with promarkers, cut with one of my nesties and the edge distresses (as has the bottom of the card - from Craftwork Cards), the paper was from my stash which I think I won from Mina at Pink Puds with sentiment, pearls and lace from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:
Lilis little Fairies - anything goes.
Aud Sentiments - anything goes

No 2.

This is for one of my best friends daughters who is turning 18 soon, again another freebie Lotv image coloured with promarkers and stickles added.  The paper is from my stash and I've then added some punched card and butterfly and added a bit of bling!!

I would like to enter this into:

Lilis little Fairies - anything goes.
Fussy & Fancy, - Butterflies, ribbon & Punches
Aud Sentiments - anything goes
I love promarkers - fairies
No 3.
A mans card - just for a change!!  Although I have a couple more to follow.  The digistamp boutique have had some new releases and this was one of the new images - I thought it would be great for my father in law - I've pinched the idea of layering the seed packet from the image that was on the sites gallery image (hope that is ok).

Again the image has been coloured with my trusty promarkers the paper, card sentiment stamp all from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:
Crazy for challenges - gardening or the great outdoors.
Cute Card Thursday - one for the boys
My time to craft - gardening gems
Digi stamp boutique - card using one of their images 

Right I think that'll do for tonight - theres a glass of wine with my name on!!

Enjoy your weekend
