L7 ... Square!

Just a quick one today...

I have made this card to enter into a couple of challenges,

Allsorts Challenge - Sketch 57 (which has a few squares on it...)
Anyone for Anya? - Fabulous Flowers!

I love pink & turquoise.. I think they go together quite well :)

Ok.. so the papers, I honestly can't remember where they're from.. they were actually scraps that I found in one of my folders. I have used the scalloped square Nestabilities to cut all the squares out.
The image is of course from TGF, Wildsprout Megan, coloured with Promarkers. The 'Love' embellishment is from a pack that I got from Tesco, they are so pretty. I have put little jewelled brads in the middle of the flowers, which I got from Nutcrafters.

Thanks for looking!

Only Men Allowed

This weeks challenge over at Anyone for Anya? is Only Men Allowed. You have to "make a card for that special man in your life"
well.. I've already made my Fathers Day card, so I have decided to enter this card that I have made for my good friend James' birthday.

It's his birthday today, so.. Happy Birthday! :)

I have used the boy from TGF's Amazing Duo stamp set, along with the You're Super sentiment. Coloured in using Promarkers.
The starry paper is from a Paper Generations Stacker, and I cut out the skyline myself and used gold Stickles to make the windows, it's meant to look like the lights are on! Hehe.

Thanks for looking!

Lace, Buttons && Bows!

I am entering this card into TWO challenges :)

Allsorts Challenge - Lace & Buttons
Anya Ink - Buttons & Bows

It's another easel card.. I love making these!
I have used the gorgeous Savannah stamp from The Greetings Farm, (coloured using Promarkers). I have used some Lace on the background (unfortunately, you can't see it so well!) and I have also used my Martha Stewart - Half Daisy punch on the background.
The papers and ribbon are from my stash, and the buttons I have used are by Papermania.

Here's a close up to show the lace and MS punch!

I think Savannah suits green! :)

Sweet Music

The challenge over at Raise the Bar this week is Sweet Music.

I have made this easel card using Nutcrafters Drumming Cash stamp.

I always get stuck for what to put on cards for boys! And I think the boys Nutshell range is great!

I have coloured Cash using Promarkers. The 'Rock On' I have cut out using my Sizzix Alphabet, and the musical paper is from The Crafthouse Press. I have used a star shaped Gromlet as the prop on the base of the card, and I added a few star shaped sequins I found.

Thanks for looking!

Bloomin' Marvelous

I have made this card for my Dad for Fathers Day next weekend, and also to enter into the Bee Crafty challenge - Bloomin' Marvelous.

To enter the challenge you have to create a card/project using lots of flowers.
Instead of going for the usual girly, flowery card, my Dad enjoys gardening so I thought this brand new Digi image, In the Garden, from Nutcrafters was perfect!

I have coloured the image using Promarkers, and I have used My Minds Eye backing paper. The plants I got a few years ago in a garden embellishment set for about £1 and I had never opened it until today. And I think the little blue flowers are Prima.. they've got mixed in with others so not too sure! Hehe.

I'm sure my Dad will like this!
Thanks for looking!

Razzle Dazzle

Hello again! Told you I'd be back ;)

I have made this card for this weeks challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge blog.

For this challenge we had to use lots of sparkles, glitter and gems!

I have used the unicorn image from Nutcrafters Magical Mimi set, and coloured her using Promarkers and Stickles.
The Make a Wish sentiment is also by Nutcrafters, from the Luna Fairy Princess stamp set.

The gems are by Prima, and the papers are from my stash - I'm glad I have finally used this glittery paper! I love it.

Thanks for looking!

Well.. yet again, it's been almost a month since I last posted anything! Eeek.
I have been a busy bee!

Well I plan on making a few cards this weekend to catch up! So, firstly here's a card I made to enter into the Hot hot hot challenge over at Anyone For Anya?

We could make a card using "bright and zingy colours, or you could just have a summery theme", so I went for both!

I have used TGF's Audrey image, and coloured her using Promarkers, and the summer backing paper is by Imaginisce, which I bought from Nutcrafters. I have used my Nestabilities to cut out the circles and rectangles. I have also used Stickles to highlight areas!

Thanks for looking!
I'll hopefully post some more tomorrow!
