Friday Sketchers 40

It's Challenge 40 at Friday Sketchers this week. I had fun following the sketch by Jacqueline, and decided to go for a Spring theme. The stamp is a gorgeous Sugar Nellie by Elisabeth Bell, coloured with pro-markers and mounted on bazzill. Papers are HOTP and another from stash, punched with the Martha Stewart doiley punch. Prima flowers, HOTP brads, a die cut swirl and a fabric birthday sentiment finish it off.

Guest Designer for Creative Inspirations

Jude at Creative Inspirations invited me to be a guest designer for her new challenge blog this week. It's challenge 3 and the theme is numbers. She has a lovely prize(see pic above), so please join in and give her your support if you can. You have a fortnight from today (23rd Feb)to get your projects in.
I've made an 18th card using an Edwin stamp on a chipboard key. On the inside I've made a pop-out 18. Papers used are DCWV All Dressed Up matstack. The image and chipboard have been coloured using pro-markers.

Jasmine - Chat stamp

This is another of my new stamps from Lili of the Valley. She's called Jasmine - Chat. I'm really pleased with these stamps.
I'm entering this card into 2 challenges. Firstly there's Just Christmas and Birthday cards. The challenge is a sketch by Amanda, which I really liked and will use again at some time. The other challenge is The Pink Elephant. It's their first challenge and it's a colour challenge of pink, black and white.
I coloured Jasmine with pro-markers and added some pink gems- she's even sitting on a pink wall! The backing papers are from HOTP. I've added white lace and a pink K & Co. flower with a die cut swirl. I've cut scallops into the base of the card. Lastly, the sentiment is a sticker mounted on black card.

Lili of the Valley Challenge 17 - MEN

The challenge this week at Lili of the Valley is to make creations for men. This gave me a perfect chance to use my new Oliver Cool stamp. The backing papers are from DCWV, stippled with sepia versafine round edges, matted and layered together on DCWV blue pearlescent metallic stack cardstock. Image, Lili of the Valley Oliver - Cool coloured with promarkers. Birthday sentiment stamped with sky blue Brilliance, brad added. Faux stitching drawn around edges.


Thanks to Pinky for this award, if you get a chance go and check out her lovely blog. I have to pass it on to 6 bloggers, so if anyone new to visiting my blog would like it, then it's for you.

Happy Birthday to ME!!

It's my birthday, today, Saturday 7th Feb, and it's still snowing. I suppose it makes a change from the usual rain on my birthday, there's still plenty of time for that though. I'm just going to my parents' house for tea to celebrate, and hopefully hubby will take me out for a drink after.
I should be on sometime later to upload a couple of new cards.
Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me..........

I've been Tagged!

Sorry it's taken me so long to get round to posting this, but I've been tagged by the lovely May and Sandra. The rules are to go to your pictures on your pc, select the 6th album and the 6th picture, upload it to your blog and explain what its about, then select 5 people to do the same. The picture is of my beautiful little springer spaniel called Casey when she was a little puppy. She's now 21 months old and we wouldn't be without her.
As I'm so late posting this, I'm not going to tag anyone, as most of you have already been tagged by now anyway.
