All that glitters

Evening all!

I'm back as promised with another card, I put most of this together yesterday, but needed to wait for the glitter to dry before I could finish it off. I've spent this evening sourcing supplies for more wedding stationary, and inevitably a few things jumped into the basket for me....!!

Anyway, here is todays card:

I've used one of my favourite stamps "Sitting Chole" from Pink Gem and coloured her with Promarkers. The papers are from the Forever Friends Spring Time collection and the ribbon is papermania. I've used flowers from Wild Orchid and have used a liberal sprinkling of glamour dust!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - Buttons, Brads, Beads, Bows
I Love Promarkers- Stitching
Cute Card Thursday- Sketch

I probably wont be back again until Friday, when I have a DT card to share :)

Thanks for looking

One for the Boys!

Evening Bloggers!

I'm back at last! I mentioned on my last post that I wasn't very well- I'm still not 100% three weeks later! I've been poorly with a cough and a cold, then I started a new job and my carfting had to take a back seat for a while. Anyway, I'm back now and I have a card to share with you:

The stamp is from Pink Gem and is called Skateboard Andy- I've coloured him with Promarkers. The papers, brads and buttons are from Papermania and the ribbon is by Smirk.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday Sketch
Passion for Promarkers One for the boys
A Spoon Full of Sugar Birthday Wishes
Cards for Men Recipe

I'll be back tomorrow with another card (I'm waiting for the glitter to dry!)

Thanks for looking

Monday Blues

Morning everyone

I started to feel poorly last night, and now I feel dreadful! My throat has decided to close up and cause me imense pain if I dare to try and swallow.

Luckly I made this card yesterday and didn't get around to posting it:

I've made this card for the Passion for Promarkers inspirational photo challenge. I used papers from Papermania, the image is from Pink Gem, the sentiment is LOTV and the flowers are Wild Orchid. I'm also entering this into A Gem of a Challenge as I have used the challenge sketch.

I'm off to get back in bed and try to catch up on the sleep I missed out on last night.

Take Care

Spring Chloe

Hello friends

I've not been able to craft half as much as I would have liked today, as my Brother and his fiance came by to order their wedding stationary :) I've got evening invites, order of services and place cards coming out of my ears!! I'm going to be very very busy for the next few months!

But it hasn't stopped me having a play with my lovely new Pink Gem stamps:

The stamp is called "Spring Chloe" and I've coloured her with promarkers. The papers are from V&A, the ribbon is papermania, the flowers are from Wild Orchid and the sentiment is LOTV. I embossed the green paper with Cuttlebugs' 'Birds & Swirls' and created faux stitching with a white gel pen.

I'm entering this card into A Gem of a Challenge, where I have followed their sketch. I'll be back tomorrow as usual with some more cards.

Take care
