Afternoon All
Another Teddy Bo card ... can you guess that I am slightly obsessed with gorgeous little furry beauties LOL
They cover so many different occasions for both men and women
My brother has got himself a new job so I thought this image was perfect for a card

I've coloured him with Copics, used my favourite Martha Stewart button punch and added some BAKERS TWINE to the middle and finished off with one of my sentiments which is part of a set of 6 LINE SENTIMENTS - EVERYDAY 2

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by :)

Afternoon All
Well .. we made it back and forth from Gatwick last night and our daughter is safely home and looking very, very brown lol
Anyway .. thought I'd drop by and show you a card I made for my hubby to give to one of his colleagues who is leaving his team ...

Just love this Teddy Bea image, I've coloured her with Copics and mounted her on nesties tying a small piece of SEAM BINDING around the top, the DP's are from Nitwits ... THIMBLES and finished off with ADHESIVE PEARLS.  The sentiment is one of mine from a new set of 6 LINE SENTIMENTS - EVERYDAY 2

So this is my first DT card and this time around the theme is :
Use leaves of some kind on your creations .. and of course a Tilda!
Check out all the fabulous creations from my DT teamies :)

Morning Blogland .. it's a lovely day here in Essex .. hope it's lovely wherever you are too :)
Today I thought I'd show you one of the cards I made for the Magazine article I did in Complete Cardmaking ... this is the sort of card we all dislike making but I wanted to show you how it can be done by just using a sentiment ....

I absolutely love this poem .. we read it at both my Mum and Dad's funerals and I think it sums up exactly what you feel ... this sentiment is part of a set of 6 REMEMBRANCE sentiments which you can find at my shop CRAFTS 4 YOU - finished off with SEAM BINDING and CARD CANDY
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by ...

Good Morning All
I'm very excited this morning ... as you all know I was very proud to be part of the TOTALLY TILDA Design Team but stepped down a short while ago due to personal circumstances (believe me not through choice LOL) ... Well I am sponsoring the challenge this time around from my shop CRAFTS 4 YOU and I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer too - thank you so much ladies :) .... boy have I missed my Tildas!!!!!
Here's my card ....

I had so much fun making this card ... I've coloured with copics, cut her out and mounted her on foam pads, the DPs are from an Authentique Halloween collection, I've used the top left hand corner of a 12x12 sheet and added black stickles for extra effect on the spider's web, BAKERS TWINE from my shop and the sentiment is one of mine from a new HALLOWEEN COLLECTIONthat fit the Stampin Up oval punch perfectly :)
Thanks again ladies for having me this time around .. I've loved it!!!

Morning All
Well ... what a day I had yesterday ... got up to no internet!!! OMG what did we all do before the internet??? 
Anyway .. it's all fixed now and I'm back online - phew!! I was lost for a while there LOL
But the good part is I managed to get all my housework done so that leaves me free today and the weekend ... YAY!!!!!!
So I thought I'd share with you another one of my Lili of the Valley Christmas cards ...

I think this image is just too cute!!! I've coloured this time with Lyra polycolour pencils for a change, highlighted with stickles glitter and mounted on nesties, the flowers are Marianne poinsettia die cuts from last Christmas :)
I made this card with a challenge in mind ... using a Bingo Board

the idea is to use any line up, down or across and indeed a Full House ... I've used the left hand column
I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by :)
Catch up with you all soon

Another lovely day in Essex but a bit blustery ... still perfect weather for crafting (any weather is perfect for crafting LOL)
On Saturday we are going to our friend's son's 18th birthday party ... I can remember the day he was born LOL .... makes me feel very old ... so I thought I'd show you the card I've made for him

I've used a fab image from the digi downloads MIKEY COLLECTION at Charmed Cards and Crafts .. these images are so good for teenage boy cards ... and I've coloured him with copics / mounted him on nesties, the papers are from Nitwits ON A HIGH NOTE, the sentiment I've made to fit the occasion and die cut with nesties, and finished off with BAKERS TWINE, MUSICAL CHARM and CARD CANDY
I hope you like it :)
