Great cards by the design team as usual

Yellow Tuesdays!!

I remembered this morning that I still have to make a birthday card for my fiance's sister! So I cracked on with this as soon as we'd finished dinner.

The image is a stamp from 'The Woodland Folk' coloured with Promarkers and the papers, flowers and ribbon are from Papermania Sunshine Capsule Collection.

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! It also makes a change to get out my normal kit and leave the Christmas stuff alone for a change :)
I'm entering this card into the Passion for Promarkers challenge which has an 'old and new' theme. The stamp is new and the papers are old.

Thanks for looking

Pink Mondays

I made another card today, and it gave me the opportunity to use those lovely pink papers I had in my stash :)

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

The sketch and non traditional colours: A gem of a challenge
The distressed edges and sticthing: Passion for Promarkers
The image and theme: Penny Black at Allsorts

Thats probably it for Christmas cards for a while as my best friend has just anounced shes bringing her wedding forward a year and she needs invites quick!!

Thanks for looking!

Stampin for the weekend- Challenge 51 Winter

This is my entry for the Stampin' for the weekend challenge. The theme is Winter:

The image is Penny Black and the papers are from Papermainia. I coloured the mouse with Promarkers.

I love this stamp and have to remember that I can't use it for all of my cards!!

Thats it from me for now, thanks for looking!

Bah Humbug Challenge 45 'Lovely in Lilac'

This is my card for the Lovely in Lilac challenge from Bah! Humbug

I've only just found this challenge, so I was a little disapointed to find that it has nearly finished for this year! Never mind, I'll just have to start following them next year :)

Thanks for looking!!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Wk 128

This is my card for this weeks sketch challenge.  Which can be found here:

I love sketch challenges as they take the hard part out of making a card- deciding where everything should go! I chose one of my favourite hedgies stamps from Penny Black (of course) and the papers were from Papermania's Christmas Henbury Lane collection. I made the poinsettas myself with a template and red glitter (which is now everywhere I might add). The image was coloured with Promarkers.

New to Blogging!

Hi, My name is Berni and welcome to my blog :)

I decided that I needed a blog to display my work, I've been a crafter for the past two years. I love making my own cards, gifts and keepsakes. There is nothing more satisfying than saying 'yes' when people ask me "Did you make this?!"

I'm currently working on my Christmas cards for this year, which I seem to be making loads of! then in the new year I need to move onto making my brothers wedding stationary, as he's getting married in August. I also hope to enter some challenges on the way, but I'm quite new to that.

Please feel free to comment on my work, I need to know what I'm doing well, and when I've made a right cock-up!!

Thanks and keep smiling
