On a roll

Evening again...or at this time in the early hours its a good morning ...wish this awful flu thing would go and leave me alone now...not fun...especially when trying to sleep so gave it up as a bad job...just popped on to enter another challenge...this time over at

Challenge 88...I have used a Mo Manning image...."bunches" (I think) which is so cute and used a 6x6 which is new for me (usually work with 8x8)....dug out my backing paper from a drawer I hadnt been in for a while (ashamed to admit!) and am so glad I did the colours of this one....punch used is from the EK range and gem strips from my stash..sentiment from craftwork card messages.  Quite pleased with this one using the lovely sketch and stash certain will be using this design again! off again to try and catch some snoozes...busy day tomorrow and weekend so no time for hoo!
bye for now

2 challenges in 1 night!

Evening again from me....think the heat as got to me abit because thought I would enter another challenge...and thats not like me at all....but saw another challenge that I fancied entering so thought...heck why not !
So heres my second blog for tonight ....this card I made for my own niece whose birthday it was ...shes a football fanatic so this image fitted in perfectly for her...coloured in with my pro-markers with her favourite love nor money though I cannot remeber where I bought the image from ...think I had got it from the Etsy shop but cant remember the name of the artist (and thats not the heat affecting me memory ...just me age!)...background papers are from Kanban and just a couple of gems on as she isnt the blingy sparkly type of girl like me! So I would like to enter this into

"No Flowers allowed"
Right am off make some more cards....happy crafting xxx

Phew...what a scorcher!

Evening all....well what a beautiful day .....couldnt ask for a nicer day and I bet you are all having a lovely time catching these glorious rays...wish I could have but being at work til 8pm prevents me from doing hoo...ah well thank the lord for air conditioning to keep me cool :0)
Thought I would share this card with you made for another one of my work colleagues little girls birthday, which I would like to enter into "Lets here it for the girls" challenge over at

The gorgeous image is from The Paper Shelter....Rapunzel is the name of this one...I used the backing papers from this lovely image that I bought as it was specifically what my friend had asked for as her daughter is mad on Rapunzel....I used the digi image and put that on the other side of the card so that she had her own colour-me-in image to do when she opened her card (wish I had taken photo of inside now) and according to my friend her little girl loved it, which pleased me no end.  Didnt want to go mad with this one so kept it very low key with just a few gems inside and out to give it a bit og bling and sparkle!
Anyhows am signing off for the mo...back to work I go !

The image is a Saturated Canary one "PartyHardy"...coloured in with Promarkers...still cant quite master this shading business...ah well practice makes day eh? card is an A4 size so bigger than I normally do and is a Kanban card already patterned so didnt feel the need to add too much as would have spoilt it....butterfly martha stewart punch...and image cut out using grand scalloped from my is the gems I added all over!  Cant have enough sparkle!   Anyhows its very late so am logging off for now to catch some zzzzzz's before long shift tomorrow.
