Tea Cozy

Hi guys, what a week it has been.... feel really down and stressed at the moment so I've been trying to shut myself in my craft room and forget about everything by throwing myself into making my cards. Anyway I made a birthday card for one of my friends. Here it is....

I used ....

Papers: Papermania 'sweet nothings' paper pack

Image: Penny Black 'Tea Cozy' coloured with ProMarkers

Flowers: Prima

Sentiment and dots: from my stash

I have entered this card into the following challenges 'Pretty in Pink' 'Something Sweet'

It's the first time i've ever entered any challenges, so I'm quite excited to finally give it a go!

Get well soon Gorjuss!

Me again! Wow what a week it's been.. snow everywhere although apparently everyone in the whole country had a damn sight more than we had! Think pretty much every UK school was closed apart from those in Peterborough lol... Ain't that just the way eh?
Anyway this week my friend from work was taken into hospital with gall stones, she's been there since thursday so I thought I'd make her a little card to cheer her up. I used this beautiful Gorjuss girl with the bear and decided I'd use my new promarkers to colour her in.

I think the card looks really cheery and bright so hopefully it should do the trick and cheer her up!

Card recipe: papers: papermania creative tones and forever friends paper packs.
Image: Gorjuss girl coloured with promarkers and mounted on mirri board.
Flowers: All prima with gems from stash
Sentiment: from own stash.

Thanks for looking, hope everyone stays safe in the snow, take care x

Happy Anniversary

Hello! Finally got round to posting something new... at last! Christmas and New Year were just so busy that i just had no time to craft at all... I was so jealous looking at all your blogs that you guys had found time to craft.... obviously just much more organized than me.

Anyway here is an anniversary card that I made for my Grandparents. I had run out of Happy Anniversary sentiments and rather than make my own on the computer or something, I decided to go through my book of vellum quotes that I haven't used for ages and find something appropriate, so I was quite pleased with this one as my grandparents have been together for over 50 years. I found this lovely Tilda as well which i thought just finished the card beautifully.

Anyway enough yapping, here is the card.....

I was so pleased with how this card turned out, as it isn't in my usual style but I thought everything came together really well.

Card Recipe

Papers: Papermania Sweet Nothings and some pink and purple vellum from a Create and Craft set.
Image: Tilda sent to me by Mandy and coloured with watercolour pencils.
Flowers: Prima
Vellum Quote from own stash
Leaves from a woodware punch.

Thanks for stopping by.
