Happy Birthday

I made this card for my friend Laura whose birthday is today.
Happy Birthday Laura!

I made this when I thought i had lost my mojo but I was quite happy with it  when I had finished even though it's quite plain.

I used my new 'me to you bear' stamp but thought that Promarkers would be to 'heavy' to colour him with so I just lightly went over him with a grey pencil colour. I'm not great at colouring with pencils so don't look too close!! The sentiment is from a 'me to you' set that came in a lucky bag that I just couldn't resist!
I used my Fiskars ribbon punch which I've not used in forever and put some teeny gems in the gaps between the ribbon to finish off.

Thanks for looking.

Sketch Saturday

This masculine card was made for a lovely lady at work who asked for a 60th card for a good friend. I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday - no.153.

I used various bits n pieces from my stash for this - I have sooooo much to use up I really shouldn't buy any more but there are just sooooo many nice things out there lol !!

Thanks for looking.

Less is More week 13

I went back to work last Tuesday after a 2 week break hence my lack of posts! I was only back for 3 days and then off for the long weekend - lucky me! I set about making some cards yesterday - some of you may know I don't have a craft room (yet!) so I have to drag out loads of stash into my living room - but I couldn't find my mojo :((

I made this one pitiful card for the Less is More challenge which this week is Thanks or Congratulations.

I made this card for my sister who had her driving test today. Unfortunately she failed so not only do I not really like this card that much, I now feel like I jinxed her! Sorry sis xx

Today is a new day however and my mojo returned - hurrah!! and I made the following card for the same challenge

This was my first attempt at making rolled roses and I'm really happy how they turned out. I added a little glitter glue along the top edges for a bit of sparkle.

Bit of a long post for me, so thanks (if you made it to the end!) for looking and also a BIG thank you to all the lovely LIMettes who leave such lovely and encouraging comments each week.
