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

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