A birthday card for Kirsty x

Evening the devil are you?
Well, I haven't been very good at keeping my blog up-to-date, think I must have too much on my mind at the moment.  Busy filling out application forms and writing covering letters...oh what fun that is!  Never mind, me and a few hundred-thousand others too.

Anyway, enough of the self pity...tonights helping is another from Fizzy Moon, 'Thanks a Bunch'.  I must be honest and admit I have changed the design slightly since photographing it; I've since added '30' to the top right corner and some card candy to the opposite, bottom left corner.  I adapted it for my niece's 30th birthday which she will be celebrating happy birthday Kirsty, you're catching up :0)

So here it is....hope you like it?

Card recipe:
Plain card stock from Ann-Maria card (& templates)
Floral paper = Forever Friends, Pink Parfait
Butterfly stamp
Flowers from stash & self made paper roses
Self made decorative pins
Images coloured with water coloured pencils
Small amount of glitter, just for the finishing touch.

Just a quickie

Evening all, how are you all tonight?  I haven't made up any cards this weekend because I've been colouring in & playing nicely.  I must get my finger out and try to enter more blogs, as I now think I know how to do a link? (hopefully :0) )
Anyway, seeing as I haven't made any new cards this weekend I thought I'd show you a card that I made a while ago for a male's 21.  Please excuse the quality of the picture, but I took it on my phone...

Another Humphrey for your delight (I hope?)

Evening all, hope  you've had a good day? I have had better days...found out today I'm being made redundant, not good! So, if anyone would like to buy any cards or require a commission just let me know lol ;0)
Anyway, enough mopping...
Tonight's helping is another Humphrey stamp.  This one is quite plain and simple but I hope you like it?

A closer look..

This lovely little image is coloured using Promarkers and water colour pencils. The backing paper is by K&Co and the final finishing touches are a little netting, button brad & card candy from my stash.   I hope to enter this on CC challenge and competion blogs.  Please feel free to make a comment :0)
(PS can I thank all those who have joined my little, but growing, list of followers.  I do REALLY appreciate it...thank you x)

Another helping of Humphrey

Evening everyone..
Tonight's helping is another stamp from the house of Humphrey, from Crafters Companion. I think these stamps are so canny (cute/nice for my non Geordie speaking visitors) .  I've been experimenting and  have used water colour pencils & blended with Sansador.   I hope to enter them on CC challenge.
What do you think.....?

The little blossoms are made from parchment paper and also coloured using water colour pencils blended with Sansador.  I also used the small flower stamp that comes with the set to create the decorative edging.

Please feel free to leave a comment; I love to hear from you..:0)

Still Aliving & Kicking!

Morning folks, how ya all doing?
Yes I'm still alive & kicking, just not a very good blogger I guess (sorry!) Although in my defense I have been quiet busy.  Been trying to ensure all my jobs are completed at work before I'm made redundant (I think I'm on the hit list so to speak :( )
Well today's helping is my attempts at the new Humphrey stamps from Crafters' Companion.  These stamps are sooo cute & a joy to colour.  I'm hoping to enter their challenge, if I can do the linky thing correctly (thank you to all those who have left instructions, unfortunately I'm still doing something wrong....but what????) I'll keep trying & with a bit a luck will get there in the end.
Anyway, back to the pics.  These little darlings were coloured using my trusty Promarkers (although I have been experimenting with watercolour pencils, so stay tuned :0) ).

Card Recipe:
                  6x6 white card stock
                  Polka dot paper, Pink Parfait (Forever Friends)
                  Pearl pink card from Kanban
                  Flowery sentiment from Card Candy
                  Ribbon from Boyes
                  Paper roses & blossoms hand made by me
                  Crystals from my stash

Hope you like my efforts?  Please leave a comment & make my day

Another Fizzy Moon

Hi All, hope you are all well?
Sorry I haven't posted for a while, I've been really busy but also trying to fathom out how to do a 'direct link', I know I'm a bit dense when it comes to this blogging job! (so if anyone can tell me how, please let me know) I'd like to be able to join in some challenges but keep linking my full blog, then guess who gets disqualified :0(  Anyway, enough of the twisting...tonights helping is another from Fizzy Moon. I really hope you like it?
CS is from Kanban. Image is stamped with Promarkers.  Flowers are from my stash

Baby book

Evening all. I hope you are all surviving the exceptionally windy weather? Tonights helping is a baby book that I did a while ago. I'm sorry about the quality of the photograph but the lighting was not too good.   Anyway, I hope you like it and please feel free to leave a comment...
