Penny Black Zig Zag Card

This is my sample for craft club's project in April.

Simple but effective zig zag card using two card blanks.

Penny Black Transparent Stamps "Purfect Day" coloured with Prisma's

Papermania Capsule Collection - Papers, ribbon, flowers, buttons

American Crafts Cardstock

MS Lace Doily border punch

Challenge Between Friends

My turn to set the challenge again, how the week's fly.

I decided that Acetate had to be used somewhere or somehow.

I used mine as the front of my card, simply scored it and attached to the back of the cardstock, covering join with nice backing paper with fancy border.

Matted glitter card which was embossed with Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder inside.

Penny Black "Crossing Bridges" stamped on to nestie coloured with Prisma's and another nestie stuck on reverse inside to hide tape and somewhere to write.

Finally - some cards

I think I've broken my new year resolution to be a better a blogger. Not made any new cards recently, despite all my new stash. Which is partly to blame. I decided to organise my stamps and spent two evenings peeling EZ mount off them. I have since discovered Tack and Peel it's brilliant, saves space and lots of messing. My stamps are now neatly stored in albums on my shelves.

So on to my latest cards both for challenges over on Docrafts

Challenge between Friends

Suzanne2's turn to set this challenge. We had to make an almost white card with one other colour. Image and embellishments had to be same colours.

I used 8 x 8 pearl card from Craftwork cards
Black Linen card from Papermill, Pearl squares embossed with Swiss Dots and Divine Swirls.
Sentiment computer generated using Engraved and Scriptina fonts
Finnished with ribbon and flower.

Penny Black challenge with an African theme

Options were an African animal, safari colours/patterns or Kenyan flag colours red, black and green

Luckily one of my Buddy's sent me this image "Roar" in my Birthday card, coloured with Promarkers, Papermania papers, sentiment from old stash and raffia from garden section in Poundland.

Happy Birthday to me!

It was my birthday on Thursday and I've had a lovely week, stretched it out. Last Saturday I went to the Leigh Craft show with a friend and spent a small fortune. It was guilt free though as I was spending birthday money. I've been out for a meal with hubby, lunch with Mum and Auntie and had a lovely girly meal last night.

Got lots and lots of lovely handmade cards from my Craft Club and Docraft buddies and some gorgeous flowers, wine and chocs off my friends.

Whisper's DoCraft Penny Black Challenge

Can't believe my first challenge card in ages and I can't upload it to DC - it says something about request length too long???

Will post it here and hope it's okay.

This image was from a Docrafter, coloured with Prisma's - after I blew the dust off them, not used them in ages.

Totally Gorjuss DT card

Finally got my PC back, I completely forgot to upload my DT card last week, can't cope with using the laptop, so normal service should be resumed now, well at least it will be when the decorating's finnished.

This week at Totally Gorjuss we've got a fab sketch by Net, it's a nice simple layout but you can make it as fancy as you like.

I've used good old Kay and Co papers and coloured my Gorjuss Girl with Copics then cut her legs out so they stick out of the nestie.

Mother's Day Gift

Sorry I've not been about lately, busy decorating the bathroom and wish it would end so I can get back to crafting.

I have managed to alter some Cd's to make a Gift for Mother's Day which was a challenge I set a couple of friends over on Docrafts.

The papers are My Mind's Eye and were freebies in a mag, one of the best freebies I've had. Inked the edges and stamped flourishes on them along with sentiments. The flowers are made using the Blossom nestie and the chipboard letters on the back are again MME.


I wasn't sure about this when I was making it but as it came together I started to like it and was tempted to keep it. I quickly put the MUM on the back and put pay to that!
