So hot...

... so I've come in for a cool down!!  While I'm here I'll just blog my brothers birthday card.  As I type he is in France doing one of the stages of the Tour de France before the professionals come through - hope he is doing well - apparently if you dont keep up a bus comes and pick you up - lol - oh the shame!!!

One of the perks of card making is you can adapt the card to make it so individual to the recipient (although that isnt always appreciated (rolls eyes)), lets hope this one is:

The image is from just inklined (you'll see it again soon for my nephews card!), I have coloured it with promarkers then matted it onto red and black card.  I have then printed a map of France - roughly showing the area he is at - again matted onto red card then added a little Eiffel tower charm (would it be rude to ask for this back when he is finished with the card lol), that I received from the lovely Steph.  Lastly the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards

Oooh the tennis is about to start!!  Must dash!!

Wow!! The Sun is shining...

...but I havent taken advantage of it today, as Janine at Crafting Crackers kindly organised another crafty sessions - where I was able to get lots of colouring done for teachers thank you cards - so I'll be able to get the cards made quickly :-) - Thanks Janine for organising it - look forward to the next session - although I am very jealous of your colouring in skills - lol.  Dont forget if you are in the Teesside Area and fancy popping in contact Janine through her blog where she will be able to help you.

I also got some of Janeys new images coloured as well - so that is some more cards in the pipeline :-).
The sun must have gone to Janeys head too - because if you are quick there is 20% off her images here until the 8th of July.

Okey doke - here are a couple of cards I have recently made as July is a bit mental for birthdays and anniversarys - this one I have used an image that I coloured at last months crafty session:

The image is from funky kits that I have coloured with promarkers and matted onto pink dp.  Then matted again onto I think Basic Grey papers - I have then die cut the heart & bow and adapted it slightly.

I would like to enter this into:

The sugar bowl challenge - anything goes.
papertake weekly - anything goes.

My next card is for my bestfriends little boy:

The image is from a collection from Dustin Pike of superheros and they are sooo cute - however I did struggle trying to get any depth/shading with my colouring, however I sort of got there in the end.  The image was coloured with promarkers and matted onto blue card then black the papers where free from a magazine.
