Frosty the Snowman

Todays card is for the challenge over at The Pink Elephant, this week it's a brilliant sketch. The image is 'Frosty' from Judikins and coloured with Copics, the bp is from last years DCWV Glitter Stack and the blue card is Cordinations. The snow flakes were cut with a Cuttlebug Die out of some old glitter paper that I had in my craft box. I'm afraid you will have to bear with me over the quality of the pic, as I said OH has our camera. I did try to scan this to see if I could get a clearer image, but the blues didn't look co-ordinated on the scan so I went back to faffing around with my camera phone.

Dancing Hedgie for Christmas

My card today is for Papertake Weekly, this week it is another brilliant sketch - No26. The backing paper is DCWV, left over from last year, the image is from Penny Black's Twelve Days of Christmas Collection and coloured with Copics. Everything else came from my stash - think I've had the stars since I started making cards. Sorry it's not a very sharp pic, but OH has taken the camera on his golf trip, so I had to take it on my phone. Although it is a 5 meg camera it takes about six attempts to get a clear image for some reason or other, this was the best of the bunch today.

I hope you like my card and many thanks for visiting my blog today and for any comments you may wish to make, I appreciate every single one. Beryl

A card for my Mum

My card today is for my daughter to give to my Mum for her 85th birthday next month. As Mum suffers from AMD and Glaucoma I have made the card tactile for her by using feathers and a tassel!, still she is rather special. The backing papers are from Funky Fairys, and the fan is from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD. I printed off the two small sizes and then layered them on top of each other with foam pads before adding a pearl brad and the tassel.

When I started out with my card I tried to make the fan out of patterned paper from Funky Fairys so that I could enter their challenge of 'No Image', but this idea didn't work and so I resorted to the CD. My card does fit the challenge over at Creative Inspirations, however, which is 'Family' this week.

3 into 1 does go

Hello, my card today is hopefully going to fill three challenges. I have followed Sketch21 from Sketch and Stash, used the colours required for Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Orange, Yellow, Black or White (I've used both) and finally the challenge over at Ooh-la-la-Creations is to use three shapes on your card. I have used rectangles, circles on the bp and a diamond border punch. The bp is from Funky Fairys and Artylicious, the image is from Charmed Cards and has been coloured with Copics, the gems, flower and mirror card all come from my stash.

Thank you for dropping by and for the wonderful comments you leave, I appreciate every one.

It's been a while again

Well, it's been a while again but here we go with a card today for the Tanda Teaser this week, which is Just for Men. The image on my card comes from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Companion, there are some great images for men's cards on this CD and it has helped me out quite a lot. The backing paper is Funky Fairys, the offset card is Cordination, the silver mirror and brads come from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated. Sorry the pic is a bit off, but I had to take it from above because of the silver mirror board. I hope you like my card and thank you for visiting and for any comments you may wish to leave. Beryl x

Christmas is Coming

Today my card is for two challenges, firstly I have followed Sketch72 for Fridays Sketchers and I have added some stars which qualifies my card for Rainbow Lady's Challenge which is for Christmas with the Stars. The image is from Daisy and Dandelion coloured with Copics, the bp's are Daisy and Dandelion and Papermania, text is from a set of clear stamps that I bought from my local craft shop and cannot remember the manufacturer, sorry. The red mirri silk card and stars come from my craft box. Many thanks for stopping by and for any comments which you may wish to make. I really appreciate them thanks.

Messy Rabbit & Friend

Hello again, my card for today fits two challenges. This weeks challenge at My Time to Craft which is Snow Buddies, and I have followed Sketch No20 for Sketch and Stash. The image is from Joanna Sheen's Messy Rabbit Christmas Collection for this year and the sentiment is from a set of messages that I bought from my local craft shop and have thrown the packaging away and cannot remember the make. The bp is Daisy and Dandelion and the ribbon, peeloff borders and silver mirror matting all come from my craft box. I have coloured the image with my new Copics, still getting used to them. Thank you for visiting today and for any comments you may wish to make. Beryl x
