It's a gorgeous day!

Yep, that's right! It's a lovely day here in Manchester! The sun is out for once! And it has inspired me to make a summery card!

So here it is... I have used the "shine" stamp from the Miss Anya - Rain, Snow, Shine stamp set.

I am entering this card into a few challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Blooming Charming (Use blooms and charms)
Anyone For Anya? - Don't Be A Square (Make a card that ISN'T square)
Allsorts Challenge - Birthdays (Make a birthday card)
TGF's Farm Fresh Friday - Colour Challenge (Use the colours given)
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Cute and Girly.

I have coloured her using Promarkers & Stickles. I have used my Classic Oval and Scalloped Oval nestabilities for the back of the easel card.
I have used a FlipFlop charm that I got from Nutcrafters, I thought this went with Anya quite well.
And for my sentiment I have used my "Sunshine kisses and Birthday wishes" stamp. I think it's so pretty! (Sorry it's a little blurry!).

Thanks for looking!

Two Challenges!

Here's the other card I have made!

I have created this to enter into two challenges..

Raise The Bar - Yellow, Grey and White
Nutcrafters/Nutshells - A card for Mum

For the Raise The Bar challenge, you just had to follow the colour combo, and for the Nutshells challenge, you had to make a Mothers Day card or, (since Mothers Day is in March here in the UK), a card for Mum.

I love this stamp set, Me Time Anya. Wish I was relaxing right now! hehe.
Coloured using Promarkers, papers & flowers from stash.

Thanks for looking!

It's Thursday! ... on a Sunday!

I've not posted anything for a little while! Been rather busy at work etc and not had much chance to do anything :(
But this weekend I finally found some time to make a few cards.. yay!

First up.. it's Thursday!

I bought this stamp when I recently went to a craft show in Port Sunlight, Wirral.

I have made this card for the Saturday Sketch over at Club Anya & Friends. All you had to do was follow the sketch given, and obviously use a TGF image.

I have coloured her in using my Promarkers and Stickles. The papers are from my growing stash hehe, as are the flowers, and I have used a Dovecraft brad for the middle of the flower!

Thanks for looking!

Just a quick one today. I haven't posted anything for a little bit.
This is a card I have made using TGF's Gigi stamp and a Boutique stamp that I bought from The Paper Mill shop.
I bought the Boutique stamp a couple of months ago, and hadn't got round to using it. So I was desperate to make something with it. I came across Gigi and thought they went together so well. She's so in fashion! hehe.
I've coloured them using Pro Markers, and for the windows of the boutique, I have used 3D Clear Gloss to make them shiny! I added a little handbag charm too! The sentiment is from a Nutcrafters Cutie Pie set, "Shopping.. A necessity not a luxury!".

Sorry the picture isn't so great, I used my phone! I shall take a better one soon.

Thanks for looking.
