Good Evening!!
Well .... I wasn't going to post anymore tonight and then I had a little look on my friend Sharon's blog and found this challenge Creative Inspiratons - Easel Card and have the perfect card to enter.  I made this card for my daughter's birthday from ... wait for it ..... our dog!! I know I'm mad :o).  The easel card is made using a scallop circle nestability and, once again, I can thank Sharon for this technique as she did it in a class and I thought what a great idea - so all credit to her.
I thought it would also be perfect for the challenge at Creative Cottage - Circles - I hope scallop circles count.
Thanks for looking :o) xx


Just a quick post before I go make tea.  I set myself a "challenge" with this card ... there were five challenges I wanted to enter so I had to make sure the card matched all the themes - after some playing around I was really pleased with the outcome.  The images are stamped from a clear stamp set from Kars, I cut the biggest scallop circle nestie and embossed it added some faux stitching and also highlighted the text (you don't realise how much you rely on design papers until you can't use them!!).  All in all think I achieved it.
Hope you like it :o) xx


Hello everyone.  Well ... I finally feel a bit better today after not being well for a few days so i've made some cards to get my fix of challenges and it feels like ages since I was in my crafting corner and posted any but it was only Sunday!  This card was made with 3 challenges in mind:

I dont know how it happened but I sort of gravitated towards a yellow theme, which is a colour I rarely use, but it seem to come together well.  The DP is K&Co - Dollshouse and some spotty Bazzill, and i've made the flowers from an old "originals" Sizzix die I found in my drawer - Build a Flower.  The greeting was printed straight onto the Bazzill using Wordart and then punched out with a circle punch.  The Magnolia stamp is "sweet Tilda" and is, of course, coloured in with Promarkers!!
Thanks for looking :o) xx

I promise this is my last blog of the day !!!!

I'm still sifting through my digital images and digital image challenges and found the challenge blog for some digi images I downloaded a few weeks ago from Mo Manning and i'm so glad I did because they are great images and I had great fun colouring them in with my trusty promarkers.
Go find the challenge at

Hope you like it :o)
The mood i'm in i'll probably see you all again tomorrow .... think I might start Christmas ;)


Well..... its my second post of the day and I can't promise it's going to be my last lol - I've found all these great challenges and just want to make more and  more cards!!  I've had loads of digi images for ages but forget they are there - but have discovered lots of challenges involving them so I thought .. great .. I can finally use them - digi images are great because you can print them again and again and in any size you want.
For this card I have use a Charmed Cards and Crafts Digital Download along with pulling out my trusty Cuttlebug which, I have to admit, I haven't used to make textured backgrounds for ages so that was different.
The challenges I am entering are:

Thanks for Looking :o) xx


Its been another funny old day, sitting chillin' in my conservatory making cards, hubby is not well and asleep on the sofa .... so all is quiet.  Anyway The Penny Black Saturday Challenge is a favourite of mine mainly because I love Penny Black stamps and is always a good excuse to get the Promarkers out!!  I really enjoyed this challenge Three Flowers, Two Buttons and a Bow and here is my card

Hope you like it :o) xx

Still sitting in my conservatory, still enjoying the peace and quiet and still cruising blogland, once again found a great challenge from my friend Sharon and thought this card would be great to enter,  I made this card for a demo I did at In2Crafting on colouring techniques.  I used a Tulip brass stencil I had and ran it through the Cuttlebug to emboss it and then simply coloured the raised image with chalks - simple technique but very effective.
I'm entering into

Hope you like it :)

Had a strange day today, been to the hospital .... again .... and just turned on my laptop and couldn't resist a quick look in blogland and come across this challenge By The Cute and Girly - Fairytales and thought about this card I made for a Cricut demo I did at In2Crafting and realised it would be perfect.  Tinkerbell is my absolute favourite so thoroughly enjoyed making this card

Hope you like it :o)

I promise this is my last blog today lol!!! I just don't seem to be able to stop making cards today.  I have found some great digi stamps recently and this one is from Cuddly Buddly - i've coloured her in with my new lyra polycolours pencils and had great fun!!  I'm entering this card in The Craft Garden - pastel colours challenge.
Thanks for looking :o) xx

I really don't know what's got into me today I must be making up for lost time but here's another entry for a challenge - this is the card I made for my son to give to my daughter today and it fits the challenge perfectly at Crafty Catz - Red & Green and use a punch 

Hope you like it :o)

Well I'm on a roll today - just popped over to A Spoonful of Sugar challenge - Happy Birthday - and thought I must enter this card as its the card I made for my daugther's birthday today - Happy Birthday Hannah!! Hope you like it .... she did :o) xx


Well I was just sitting here waiting for my online shopping to arrive and thought while I'm waiting i'll make a card ..... as you do!  I found some great challenge blogs and decided to enter this card into two of them - the colour challenge was DEFINITELY a challenge because I was way out of my comfort zone and not a colour scheme I would usually choose but ... hey .... it really works!!  The image is a digi stamp from Craft Planet coloured, as usual, with my trusty promarkers :)
Hope you like it xx
The two challenges I have entered are:

Well, yet another sunny day and I have got all my housework and ironing up to date so I thought I'd have a little look in blogland and see what challenges were around - as usual my friend Sharon has led me to this challenge from Polka Doodles - Animal Magic - I know you will all think i'm mad but I always make cards from my dog Skye to family members - (it just gives me an excuse to make another card really lol) and this one was for my hubbie - I used a Little Claires stamp of a westie and coloured it in using my fave promarkers.

Hope you like it :o)

Just cruising blogland challenges and came across this challenge - Crafty Angels - My Favourite Things - and two of my favourite things are magnolia stamps and promarkers so I thought I'd enter this challenge using a card I made for a friend of mine using both those things (the added bonus for me is that Tilda is holding a ladybug which I love !!)
Hope you like it :D


Hello Blogland!!
What a gorgeous day - I've been sitting in the garden and gone a little bit pink so decided to come inside and made a card (as you do :)).
A colleague of my hubbies has just had a baby girl so he needed me to make him a card and I decided to combine this by doing a tutorial on my other blog Lynne is In2Crafting (pop over and have a look).
Easel cards are so "in" at the moment and so easy to achieve - I used some new goodies we got in at the shop this week from Kanban
Thanks for looking - hope you like it :)

As usual my friend Sharon's blog is a source of inspiration and links to challenges! While I was having a look at all her lovely cards I came across the Crafty Pad Challenge - Orange, yellow and Green and thought this card would be perfect.  I made this for my daughter's friend for her birthday as she loves yellow! :)
