Spring is on it's way


I am such a slow blogger and really behind with my posts. This is my card for the current
The theme is Spring Or Greens or put them both together if you like.


I've used a Unicorn image from Polkadoodles Octavia. I love Unicorns and he is really easy to colour. I have layered him up on die cuts using a nice bright green for a background.


I have decorated the card with Prima flowers and some die cut leaves. some ribbon and a matching bow finish it off. I had to make it with limited stash available, it's really difficult without all your stuff I hope you all still like the finished card.

Christmas Post


It's time for a new challenge over at the Crafting Cafe and the them is 
Use your Favourite Technique.


I have lots of favourite techniques, there are so many out there how could you choose just one. But this is one I like and that is one layer or clean and simple. The image has been put directly onto the card and coloured in.


I have coloured it in using Polychromo pencils and I have added a little 3d snow effect.
I did die cut the greeting because I wanted a fairly big greeting and I hadn't got a stamp big enough.
I hope you like it and please join in our challenge you may win a lovely prize.

Lilac's in Spring


Hi it's challenge time at Graph'It markers and this is my inspiration. 

A simple card design which I was inspired to do watching my friend make a card the other day and this just popped into my head. Thanks for the help.


I have coloured the image with my Graph'it markers, I have also put a black and white version in the bottom right corner of the background for a contrast. I have layered it all on lilac and purple card.


Then just a nice big bow and a small round greeting in the left corner. I hope you gives you all some ideas and you pop over to the blog and join in the challenge.

Snail Mail


My very late DT card for this Months challenge at The Crafting Cafe. The theme this month is

Lots of layers.

This is one of our sponsors, Bugaboo, images and I have coloured it with Graph'It Markers. I have made the pale green panel down the back using Alcohol Inks.


I have cut an aperture out of the brown card using a Spellbinders Die and the added the pink frame also cut with Spellbinders dies. I have decorated the frame with some clear gems.


For this side panel I have used several Stampin'Up products.The fern leaf is stamped in Brown Sugar ink, Punch out 3 tags and the flowers and added coloured candy to the centres. Finally metal decorative corners and 3 butterfly charms. I hope you like it.

White Right


I have not put anything on here for a few weeks as I have been on a lovely holiday, but it's time to get back to my cards.

Welcome back to the current challenge from Graph'It Markers. The theme this time is
Crisp and White.

I have used a lovely image from Aurora Wings and of 
course it has been coloured with my Graph'It Markers. I have kept quite a lot of the image white and the background and flowers too.


I have just added a little colour of blue highlights and carried that on with the feathers and embossed layer. I hope you like this and pop over for some more lovely inspiration from my team members and possibly join in to have a chance at winning a lovely prize.

Christmas Past


This was a card I made just before Christmas but I went away for Christmas this year so I will share it with you now. It was sadly my last card as part of the DT for Through the Craft Room Door, a short lived membership due to changes than have taken a lot of my spare time.


I've coloured him with Polychromos pencils and added some 3d snow past.


It also includes a sheet of Kanban Patterned card, die cut snowflakes and a dotty ribbon and bow.
A very cute image from The Stamping Boutique.

Holly Fairy


It's the last challenge of 2014 at the Graph'it Markers challenge and we have a nice easy theme of
Winter Wishes.
I have used an Aurora Wings image Holly Fairy, so cute and I have coloured her in with my Graph'it Markers. All the layers have been cut out using my Woodware paper trimmer, that can use different blades, using the scalloped blade some cut with the scallop in and some out. I think that makes it a bit more interesting to use.


I have die cut the holly leaves and used gems for the berries. The Happy Christmas greeting is die cut. Then a bit of 3D snow added to the fur trim on her jacket. 

Happy Christmas to you all x x
