Floral Fantasy

My card for today fills the challenge set by Tanda Teaser this week, which is Floral Fantasy. When I saw the topic I looked out my Joanna Sheen CD of the same name. I decided to go with this image of butterflies (yet again!) and daisies and it's co-ordinated bp. I matted the bp onto a piece of card which I had printed using a Funky Fairys download. I Cuttlebugged a piece of this card and added some ribbon and adhesive gems from my stash and used this to offset the main image. Thank you for visiting my blog and also for leaving me such wonderful comments. They really make my day. Beryl x

A different butterfly

Hi folks, well things must be looking up cos this is my fourth post in five days!! I've got another butterfly today and my colours are very similar to yesterdays too. The card is for my best customer, his niece is going to be 21 next month. I have followed the sketch from Papertake Weekly for this card. The papers are from my Graphicus Guild set and the stamp is from Elusive Images. I stamped and embossed onto a piece of card that I had coloured with alcohol inks during a play session a while back, it was sitting in my off cuts box and I noticed it matched with a section of my paper. The ribbon and mounting cardstock are from my craft box. Many thanks for visiting my blog. Beryl x

Blue and Green should ne'er be seen

Hello, my card today is for the challenge over at Cute Daisy May which is Blue and Green, once upon a time it was said that these two colours "should ne'er be seen without a colour in between" I have always loved the combination. I have used one of the CDM digi Stamps and coloured with Promarkers. I have used offcuts of Lapiz Stardream to mount the image and the papers are from Funky Fairys. Everything is mounted onto silver mirror board. The ribbon came from my stash and I finished off by adding a Flora Doodle. Many thanks for continuing to support my blog, it means a lot to me as do all of the comments you leave. Beryl x
I have just realised that my cards fits the bill over at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp, where the colour combo is Blue, Green and White or Cream. This my first entry for this challenge. B x

Strawberry Tea

Hello again I've managed to fill another challenge with a card for one of my customers. This card follows the sketch for Sketch Saturday, Sketch No.65. The image is a Sugar Nellie Stamp coloured with Promarkers. The cardstock is all from Funky Fairys and I have had the backing paper for so long that I can't remember where it came from. The ribbon was a magazine freebe ages ago and the flowers are punched from the same cardstock and I added sticky back gems to the centres. As you can see I finally got my Martha Stewart Lace Doily punch. I hope you like my card and once again thank you for visiting and leaving me such great comments. I appeciate every single one.

At Last!

Hi Folks, not been around lately as I haven't been able to get going again for some reason. My card is for this week's Tanda Teaser which is for a gatefold card. My neighbour asked me to make her an Anniversary card for her hubby. The image and backing paper are from Joanna Sheen's Cottage Gardens CD, I have had this set since it's launch and this is the first time I have used it. I printed the image onto inkjet canvas and matted with gold mirror board, the heart embellishment came from my craft box. I hope you like my card and many thanks you for visiting my blog, especially as I haven't been posting or blog hopping for a while. Beryl x

Bethany's Fairies

Hi, I have been crafting with my eldest grand-daughter - she is the one in the pic with red hair and glasses. She wanted to try some Encaustic Art so I gave her the wax and irons to play with. This is one of her pieces, we then got the stamps out and she stamped and coloured these Elusive Images Fairies and we thought they would look really good on her wax picture. Thank you for visiting and could you please take the time to leave a comment, because she will be thrilled if you do. Beryl x
