A True Classic

A card made for my neighbour. This gorgeous little chap (the rabbit not my neighbour, sorry Mick!) is called Horace & he's a digi from Polkadoodles, Cherry Blossom Lane. He's coloured with Graph'its (3230, 3245, 3250, 8280, 8290, 9201, 1210, 1230, 1250, 3255, 3270 + blender). The background was embossed using A Special Touch, Tartan mask and inked with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage & Tea Dye distress inks. A bit of raffia and a tag finishes the card off.

Happy Birthday Mick have a great day x

Spring Is In The Air

Don't we all love a bit of spring? Everything coming back to life after being asleep all winter you can't beat a bit of warm sunshine and a splash of colour!

Over at Polkadoodles today is the start of our new fortnightly challenge with 'Spring' being the subject. Here's my DT project this week. A cute little tag.......

It's made using the oh so versatile Sundae of Seasons CD Rom this is all printed out using one sheet. I mounted it onto a mini rocker card made from acetate this then gave me a little something to add my flowers too. it was a little bit fiddly layering up the flowers on such a diddy project but great fun and something a little different. All I added from my crafty stash was a button, a bit of sparkle and some raffia around the handle.

Feel free to leave me a comment & thanks for stopping by x

My Facebook Card Give Away

I've recently started doing the occasional card give away on my Facebook Page I had 33 in the cup and my friend, fellow crafter and Barry Manilow fan, Karen Wylam was the lucky recipient this time around and here is her card.

I loved it soooo much I didn't want to part with it Lol so if anyone reading this is ever stuck on a card to send me... Take note! The insert reads 'This One's For You'.

I've scheduled this blogpost for Tuesday as I'm hoping it will have arrived by then and I can share.....

Mum's The Word

Today is challenge day over at Polkadoodles and we're thinking about our Mum's. I so wish my Mum was still with us so I could share the day with her although I know she's never really far away.....

Anyway while I get all melancholy, here's this weeks DT project 

Two must haves for your CD collection this week. I used the Dolly Daydream Girl Talk for the backing paper, striped border and oval sentiment and Fredericka for the digi, I chose Billie who I then coloured with Graph'it Markers the colours used are skin, 4115, 4155, 4170, 4135 hair, 1210, 1230, 1250,1270, 1280, 3245, jeans, 9100, 9101, 9102, 9104, tshirt, blender, 9100, 9101, shoes, blender, 9500, 9502, 5110. The belt & lipstick are wink of stella glitter pens. I added the striped border to a piece of punched black card. The sentiment was attached to a 'Spellbinder Floral Oval' die cut I then added a couple of 'Tattered Lace' flowers and glittered up a flourish to make a very pretty mothers day card.

I do love to read your comment so feel free to pop by anytime.
