Hellooo...

...hubby has gone fishing I've got the kitchen floor washed, so going to sneak on here for a little card blogging and get back to some bits and pieces in the house.  Wish I was more organised around when to do my crafting/blogging in my 2 days off - I just seem to flit from one thing to another and never feel I have achieved anything - how do you structure days???

Anyhoo, here is a card I made for my mums friend:
Just a quick make with a LOTV image coloured with promarkers (I coloured this the other weekend at Janines new crafty club that I mentioned on my previous post).  The image has been matted onto baby blue bazzill and with the same card I have die cut the swirly bow and added a little pink gem.  The paper is Pink Petticoat which was a freebie in a magazine ages ago.

I would like to enter this into:

I love promarkers - pink/blue

The next card is one I've made just to have in (although really I need more emergency mens cards lol):


The image is a gorgeous wee stamp coloured with promarkers, matted onto a doily.  The backing papers are papermania matted onto black paper (I hope the black isnt too harsh - I wanted something striking - let me know what you think).  The sentiment is Craftwork cards.

I would like to enter this into:

Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Stampin for the weekend - anything goes.

Oh just to let you know I finished my male card from yesterday and also my little mouse cross-stitch - yay!!

Thanks for looking

Ali

  4. Hey, Ali! Glad you enjoyed your trip and I hope you're back refreshed and ready to go (especially as you have so many cards to make this month!) As for structuring days, I tend to just put craft at the top of the list and everything else can wait!! ;) Only kidding, TBH, I really don't know how people manage a full time job, kids, house AND blogging everyday!
    Fab cards that you've made, love the simple design and sweet images! Hugs, Lisa x

  12. Sending card is the sweetest way to get in touch with persons we dearly remember. The card designs here are so lovely and heart-warming …reflecting that these are created with very light and refreshing feeling. The use of matte paper and pastel colours enhances the creativity of the cards.
