Happy Bank Holiday Monday to all!! Hope you're having a crafty day. I have only managed one card so far as we've been out swimming with the kids and then to buy some new bits for the hamster - Cookie. He's such a cutie.
Anyway, here's the card ... my first using a Tilda. One of my lovely blog followers Debbie stamped some Tilda's and posted them to me. Thanks again Debbie. Let me know what you think of my 1st Tilda card.
This card is for an expectant mum (as if you hadn't guessed lol!!). This card is entered into Friday Sketchers sketch #104 as I followed their sketch.
The stamp is Lucy from In Style which you can purchase from Dies to Die For by clicking here. I coloured her with Promarkers and cut her out with a Nestie. The patterned papers used are from Basic Grey Bittersweet paper pad which I have had for a while now. The rest are from my stash. The sentiment was just typed up in word and printed onto card and then I finished off with a lovely flower and a few gems.
Well, this is my final post for today. As you can see I have been a busy buzzy bee again this week! I have a lot of friends at work that keep requesting cards from me! I still have another 9 cards to make, but I only have one more week at work and then I have a week off so I can catch up then!
I made this card yesterday, but decided to share it with you today as I had already posted quite a few yesterday! It's another baby girl card requested by another work friend, boy my friends keep me busy!!
Anyhow, I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and this is challenge #102.
I've been a busy buzzy bee today and done another 3 cards. These are all ones that friends have asked me to do so I hope they like them.
The first one, I am entering for Anyone for Anya 'dont be square' challenge.
The next two are for sisters. The 8 year old was a no no for any pink, although I did colour one of the shopping bags pink!
I would like this next card to be entered for Sketch and Stash challenge #35 as I followed their sketch. I used an Anya stamp, Promarkers to colour, ribbon from my local market and all the papers, gems, and the flower are from my ever growing stash! I printed the number 8 from my computer and die-cut it with a nestability.
This 6th birthday card was requested to be VERY pink - I think I've succeeded!
I saw a card layout like this somewhere but I can't remember where, so whoever designed this sketch - I thank you!
Well, thats me for today. Hope you enjoyed looking and thanks for buzzin by, Donna x
My friend Dina asked me to make a wedding card for her friends that are marrying next weekend. She gave me NO IDEA of what she wanted!! I hope she likes it! I'll let you know when I give it to her ... fingers crossed!!
I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and would like this card to be entered.
A close up of the babys breath flowers from Wild Orchid Craft which you can buy by clicking here. I typed the names in word (French Script), printed onto card and then stamped the heart over the top (luckily I had a clear stamp lol) and then cut round them freehand.
The printed paper with wedding words is from the Making Memories 'Wedding' stack.
I have loads more cards to make so hopefully there will be some more to post later today.
Hi all, as you may know by now Sunday is my main crafting day and today is no exception. Unfortunately I have been quite busy with other things so have only managed 2 cards today :((
My friend Tracey's step-daughter is expecting any day now but they don't know if they're having a boy or a girl so I made one of each. For the baby girl I have followed the sketch over on Friday Sketchers #101 and would like this card to be entered.
For the baby boy I followed a sketch on Simply Sketches which I found whilst blogging around. It's actually from July 2009 but hey, sketches don't go out of date do they?!!
Good evening - its 10.40pm and I've just finished another 40th card for my friend Angela to give to our friend Laura who is 40 tomorrow. I know if I had a craft room I would have been finished ages ago but I have to keep going back in my bedroom to get more bits and pieces that I need. At least my bedroom is downstairs so I'm not up and down disturbing the kids!
I followed the sketch and used a Forever Friends stamp coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from the Daisy & Dandelion Hawthorn & Bramble pack from docrafts which I bought from my local craft store. The holographic lace sticker is Anita's and the flowers are Prima. I didn't have a flower big enough to go behind the 40 so I cut some up and stuck the petals on individually. The gems are Bling from Hobbycraft.
I added some stickles on the flower and Laura's name on the tag on the parcel - cute huh!
The stamp is Chloe on swing from Pink Gem Designs and you can purchase her by clicking here. The papers I have used are from Papermania Henbury Lane collection and the daisy border is a Felt Floral Trim again from Papermania. I bought those in my local craft store yesterday.
I'm really getting into this competition business and I love the sketches that I am coming across - it really gives me inspiration.
Hi, my name is Donna and I started making cards around May 2009. I have 4 children, a loving husband and a full time job in a secondary school. Luckily I only work term time so get chance to make cards during the holidays! I had a craft room built (June/July 2011) so I can craft to my hearts content ... lucky me :))
