Passion for Promarkers and Sketch Saturday

Hi Guys,

I have decided to combine one card for 2 challenges. For Passion for Promarkers the theme was "Sweet Treats" So the cupcake theme was used. Sketch Saturday was a lovely sketch so I have used this to make an easel card.
I have used the following:
Pink card from the crop box. I really think that box is getting fuller and fuller every time I go near it.
Square and Dahlia nesties.
Daisy and Dandelion The Secret Woodlands clear stamps featuring Daisy.
The patterned paper is from the Dovecraft Birthday Designer pack.
Ribbon from stash

I have also been brave again and used the sewing machine. I have to admit I do like this technique.

I used another of the stamps from the Daisy and Dandelion which is from the Daisy selection. I have also used the Martha Stewart cupcake border punch. I do love this punch!
I used my Dahlia nesteis for the little cute cupcake.
Once again thank you so much for looking.

C.R.A.F.T. Dog challenge

Hi guys,

Over at C.R.A.F.T Challenge the theme is Dogs so here is my card.
It's my Dad's Birthday tomorrow so I made a deal with Jennifer that she did her homework and I would make the card.
The surprising thing is.......that this worked and she did her homework...........I am in shock!
I used red pattered paper that I have had since day one of crafting. Label three nesties. Some red ribbon I had in the stash. It's a simple card as my Dad is not a fussy person.
Thanks for looking

Flutter By Wednesday Challenge

Hi guys,

On the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge blog it was follow a sketch and this is what I made. I used:

Blossoms nesties
Paper from crop box that was collecting dust
Ribbon from stash
Card candy and a sticker
Can not forget the lovely stamp from Lili of the Valley called Rose Fairy

To make this flower I cut 8 smallest blossom nesties and then just screwed them all up. Added a brad into the middle and then unfurled the edges a little bit until I was happy.
Thanks for looking

Another 4 in 1 card

Hi guys,

I made this card for 4 challenges.......I am getting good.......I wish!
First challenge is for the ABC challenge which is C for charm. This is new to me as I don't ever use charms. I have a few but not many....actually I think I have 5 left.
I crochet the flower myself with wool that I have in a box and used my 3mm hook. Because of the wool flower I am going to add this to the Cute Card Thursday challenge. The theme for this is material girl and material had to be used on the card so I think my flower will work for this.
Third challenge is I love Pormarkers, I coloured my lovely image in with Pormarkers and this image is a Lelo Design........he is so sweet. The theme at I love Promarkers is Myth and Magic and I associate Dragons with Myth even is he is so cute.
And the fourth challenge is Inspiration card Sketch challenge using they very nice sketch.
Well I think I have covered everything here.....so thank you for looking and please leave me a comment even if it to say Hi.

Duncan's card from me.Dad and Jennifer

Hi guys,

These are the cards that I made for Duncan's Birthday (Dingusdee).
This is the card from Dad. Well there is a little story on this......Dad is a Leeds Utd fan and Duncan is a Scunthorpe fan and now they are in the same league. So the fighting in the house as started. Dad asked for a card in Leeds Utd colours as he knew Duncan would love it........NOT. It is a good thing that Duncan as a sense of humour.

This is the card from Jennifer. Daddy like's his baking so I stamped a few cupcakes on the background and embossed them in different coloured powders. I then made a 3d larger cupcake.

This card is from me. It was my first attempt at a step card. I am not quite happy with it but Duncan loved it.
I hope you like and thanks for looking.

Spyder's Challenge

Hi guys,

I have been having a look into the blogging world and I had to pop over to see Lyn (Spyder). Her blog is ace and she has a challenge to use one of her digi images. All you have to do is e-mail her for the image and then.......just crafting and add to her blog. So here is my go at using this lovel image.....................

I saw the image and had to drag the pencils out to colour the image in. I used my Martha Stewart punch and card that was in my crop box. I tried to use my sewing machine and if you have a couple of glasses of wine I am sure the sewing will become very straight.........ok maybe a bottle of wine to make them look straight. I also used my oval nesties.

I hope you like.

Cards for Cancer Research UK

Hi guys,

I have been quiet for a little while so i hope you have not missed me too much....LOL.

These are cards that I have made for the local Cancer Research UK. They are so many charities it is so hard to keep up and so hard to afford them all so I saw the empty bags at the local shop and thought that I could do this. I have made a few and I don't think my cards have lasted long in the shop. So I need to make more.

Hope you like them.
