gah! time has ran away with me again - honestly where does it go to - while I have a spare few minutes I thought I'd blog some recent makes and pop them in some challenges:

First up is hubbys valentines card:

Its one of Mo's great images that she recent had as a freebie download - thank you Mo.  Great image for a man -  I had some other images lined up but was a bit worried they were a bit girlie.  I have coloured him with promarkers and matted him on to red card then black card.  I have added some twine that was free with a magazine and added the sentiment that was again part of a freebie with a magazine a while ago.

I would like to enter this into:

Mo's challenge - anthing goes with a mo image
Cards for Men - all my love

The next card is for the little lad over the road - who plays with Tom:

The digi image is the Stamping Boutique, again coloured with promarkers.  The papers are Kaisercraft - the image and centre papers have been matted onto red card. Think I need to add some pennant dies to a shopping list - I cut that one myself - I even measured it and everything - check me out - normally I just cut and hope for the best lol.

In my amazement at creating my first Mothers Day card I forgot about my m-i-l's birthday next week - oops - no panic!!!  I set too and made this one:

The image is a LOTV freebie image from a magazine - coloured again with trusty promarkers.  The papers are Basic grey and I have matted onto pearlised card.  The memory box die has been cut from the same card then added some bling to the flowers and the corner of the card.  The sentiment is from Craftwork cards.

I would like to enter this into:
I love promarkers - Happy Birthday
Crafty sentiments - anything goes
Papertake weekly - anything goes. 
Moving along with the times - only girls allowed.

Lastly a card I made for my other sister in law (two s-i-l's both with birthdays in Feb!!)

I have coloured the gorgeous sugar nellie image with promarkers and matted onto pink card - the papers are Basic Grey again all matted onto pink card.  Then added flowers and pearl from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:
The Sugar Bowl - anything with a Sugar Nellie image.

Phew think thats me nearly caught up - off to print out some images for colouring and then do a bit of sewing - I've finished a cross stitch project - so just need to get it made into something.

Thanks for looking

  14. Hi Ali, me again :) thanks first of all for hopping by today and your nice comment. You asked me about the embossed border of my card. To do that I just used my hougie board, doing one line at a time, turning around my white card each time. Very easy. Hope you try it out and I was very happy to know that I was an inspiration to you :) hugs xxx
