If you guessed another 18th Birthday you would be correct. Sorry there will be a few more before the year is out.

This one is for Emma. This time the request was for blue and elegant.


I have used a Prima Mixed Media Stamp stamped in Memento tuxedo black and coloured with Kaisercraft Fusion and Spectrum Noir markers. I outlined my image with a soft grey. I added some wink of stella to her skirt ruffle and the bottom of her jacket and sleeves – you can’t see it in the pic, but it is there. I layered her onto La Carte Blue passion cardstock.  The card was finished off with CC designs leafy branch and MFT rolled roses with pearl centres.  No sentiment and the inside is blank as Miss E has taken to writing essays in her cards this days.  Maybe she is practising for her upcoming English exam.


Hope you have a great weekend planned. Enjoy.

Thanks for looking.




Ahoy me hearties…

Sorry couldn’t help that.

This weeks challenge at the Lollipop Ladies is Pirate Lollipops and water.


I made this card using a digi image from coloured with markers along with stamps from Hero Arts and My Cute Stamps. Plus Heidi Grace patterned paper,  cardstock from my stash and Sizzix Woodgrain embossing folder.


I tore the cardstock and layered before stamping my images onto the underwater scene. I stamped the shells and star fish onto scraps and cut out before adding to the water. The Pirate is standing on a piece of embossed woodgrain cardstock – like a part of a ship or a jetty. The sun is stamped and a punched circle added for the centre.

I was having fun so I made a second card.


Using PTI Tremendous  Treats, My Cute Stamps – Fishy Fun and AnnaBelle Stamps Boy’s Party images. I have coloured the pirate with alcohol markers and Tim Holtz black soot.  I added some sparkle to my pirate with some glitter on his skull and cross.  I layered by using circle punches and popped up with foam tabs. The little boats are coloured with SU markers before being hand cut.

Pink Spots…

I fully intended to have these cards made over our recent long weekend – however other things got in the way of my crafting time.

I made this for a couple of challenges this week.


I used ABSC033 for the layout. I have used cardstock from my stash. The image is from ABS Tomorrows Dream paper pierced with bits again from my stash. I coloured her scarf and hat band with markers before adding glossy accents. I used an alcohol marker to colour her face. I die cut her using a circle die before mounting to a scallop circle.  I replaced the kite with a felt balloon cut from PTI die and added twine from the twinery (blossom). The card front is embossed using swiss dots. The sentiment is from ABS Party Animals 1. Before finishing off I added some  punched flowers with rhinestone centres.

I then decided to make a second card.


In this card I used ABSC031 sketch with ABS digi paper in spots with some ABS ribbon. The sentiment is again from ABS Party Animals 1. I added a Kaisercraft pre cut flower, Basic grey button tied in the centre with blossom twine and finished with a row of rhinestones.

These cards were my post for the Lollipop Ladies this week and I am linking them up to the challenge at Annabelle Stamps.

Thanks for stopping bye for a peek.

If you are any where near where I live I hope you are staying warm and dry!

Hope to be back again soon.



Simple Bloom…

I made this card using a free digi from Uniko Studio.

I first printed 3 copies of the flower image and coloured with some Spectrum Noir makers – this is my first time colouring using alcohol markers. I might need a bit more practising and more than one set – Oh boy that wish list! Any how once coloured I cut the images out, coloured the edges and fixed to my card front panel. I also stamped the sentiment from Uniko Flower Power #1. Once all this was done I fixed to the card front using foam tape.


Hope you are having a great week.
