Poppy Easel Card...............

Good evening hope you've all had a great weekend...I've been doing a bit of crafting and also getting ready for my sister and hubby's visit next week...I may be missing for a while whilst they're here...but just maybe whilst they're chilling in the sunshine I might just sneak off for half an hour and do something crafty...LOL

Well my main reason for this visit is to post the card I've made to enter in the Stamping Sensations September Challenge...haven't entered a challenge for an absolute age due to mojo going off the boil...but as Mr Mo is finally making an appearance once again I thought this is as good a time as any to start entering challenges again.  Hope you like my entry.....

The cutting file used is a design by Rae Carr...I used it in portrait mode to comply with the shape of the image.  The digi stamp is one by Teri Sherman...I do love her stamps...and as always I coloured the image with Promarkers.  The image and sentiment were backed with black card and then I added some faux gems and bakers twine to finish.  I also sponged green ink around the cutouts but it doesn't show up too well in the photo.

Well I'm afraid that's it for this visit...thank you for visiting...until next time take care.

Cheers !!...........

Hi I'm back again...not much of a time lapse this time though the latest card I've made to show you.  This image by Victoria Case has been used by me a few times of my favourite digi stamps I have to say...!!  Hope you enjoy looking........

As I said earlier the image is a digi stamp by Victoria Case and coloured with Promarkers...the chevron file was from Krafting Kelly on Silhouette Plus and after cutting it out I backed it with a piece of blue textured card.  I've also used the file in portrait mode...the wording I cut using a white smooth card and did an offset with black card.  The plaid background is a digi paper that was amongst my files...sorry I can't remember who I got it from I normally note the source of a file but this time I apparently didn't.  Maybe someone will put me right...!! 

Thank you for popping in and visiting my little part of blogland...I'll be back soon...until then take care...!!

Happy Birthday...... a lovely friend...!!
 I've been waiting a while to cut this file and the upcoming birthday of my friend gave me the chance to do so......I'm just hoping she likes it...!!


The file is from the Silhouette online store.  I resized the file for my's really pretty when completed and doesn't need much if any embellishing.  For my part all I used to embellish the card were flat-backed pearls...a sentiment that I embossed and has ended up looking more cream than white but it works and a small butterfly that was fluttering around in my craft stash for I don't know how long...LOL.  I also made the insert as a was only a plain one apart from the verse so I didn't bother to take a photo...but it did turn out well couldn't believe how easy it was to do.

Must go now but thank you for calling by...hope you've enjoyed visiting me...please call again...until next time...take care...!!
