Male card

Another commission for a boy this time, as with most of us I think..... I really don't like making male cards!!! I think this one turned out ok though, reasonably happy with it. I've used Stampin' Up cardstock for the base card, also the motif is from the Baroque Set, I stamped with Versamark and clear embossing powder then cut out, added it on with a brad, Basic Grey papers, Cuttlebug corner die, Quickutz nameplate die, K&Co chipboard letters and finished with a little doodling with my fabby new white gel pen!! Hope you like and have a great weekend all!!!

My cat

I just had to show you this photo of my beautiful cat Honey, she's a ginger female which I am told is quite rare..... she is 15 now, so quite an old girl, but she's still my baby!! She walks with a bit of limp now and struggles to jump up onto the window sill!!! Poor thing, just thought I'd post her photos.....

Bath-time & Question

Hi everyone, this is a card I made for a commission, I've used Imaginisce papers & brad, Hero Arts greetings stamp, Bazzill Gerbera, all from Crafts U Love. Stampin Up ribbon, Fiskars border punch, Cuttlebug corner die, Quikutz mini metro alphabet. The image is from a set of stamped images I bought from a lovely lady on ebay, much cheaper than buying stamps all the time, I coloured her with copics also bought from Crafts U Love.

My question is: can anyone recommend a qood make for a white gel pen? As you can see from the photo, i have used a Sakura one (on the pink scallop border and around the bath) and to me it just looks like I got the Tipex out!!!

Hope you all have a great day and wrap up warm!!

Hi everyone, I just picked up the latest Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine and they have put one of my cards in the Readers Gallery.....

Bye for now...

new year.... new card

Hi Everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Just thought I'd show you all this little Get Well card, I used an image from Rubber Romance stamps, paper is Imaginisce, used the Fiskars lace border punch and even managed to incorporate the off cut bits of the punch out too! Not sure if it shows on the photo, but used white flock on her dressing gown and slippers, coloured her with a mixture of Promarkers and Prismas.... rather an appropriate card for this time of year, I too have had the dreaded lurgy !! much better now though... Bye for now.
