Another quicky tonight as I have to get my stuff ready for tomorrows workshop at The Hobby House, with Bev Rochester, so looking forward to it well worth the forty mile drive.

Evening, I've done 3in1 tonight ABC wanted P for Pearls so I've used some pearl brads from Delish, in the middle of my flowers. The colour scheme is from Colour Create Lemon, Chocolate and Pink and also Shabby Chic was mentioned. Im not that good at shabby. The lovely sketch comes last weeks Simon Says I didn't get chance to use it last week but liked the look of it and thought I'd use it this week instead. Sarah Kay stamp just because I love it.
See you Friday


Hi, here's my card as guest designer for the Belli Challenge, Chris sent a download of some images for graduate, so I tiled the cap to make a baking paper and coloured it in, printed off the sentimate and made a scroll . Layered a couple of nesties to make a mat.
I really enjoyed being a guest designer on the Belli Challenge it was certainly an experience .lol.
well must get back to work now I'm on my tea break.

Two tonight

Evening, I've managed to do two challenges in one tonight.
I've used the lovely sketch from the Sketch Saturday Challenge and the colour scheme from Colour Create that uses sky blue, tan and ecru, they als wanted gloss, glitter or glaze I dont know if it counts as I've used pearlised paper for the gloss and pearls in the flowers, she is wearing a bit of sakura glaze pen on her lips aswell. WOJ stamp, K&Co papers, nesties rest from my stash.
Will have to miss tomorrow as we are off to the pictures.

Evening, didn't think I was going to get a card on today as my son and DIL have come home for the weekend, my sister had given me some paper racks and I had to dismantle some shelving in my bat cave and I'd dumped loads of stuff in my spare room, so I had to clear it all out so they had somewhere to sleep. Its great to see them . last time was back in February. Well enough waffling I've used the great sketch from sketch and stash, the stamp is a funstamp that i hadn't used for ages, it also fits the cupcake challenge for man or boy and the colour scheme from pink elephant which was light blue, with either mid or dark blue , green and white. The papers are from a pack of my minds eye.
hope to be back tomorrow.

Belli Challenge

Hello, I'm so excited, I'm the Guest Designer for the Belli Challenge Blog for all of May.

With so many talented artists on the design team I was so nervous to get it right, in the end I wickled it down to two cards but couldn't decide which one I liked best so sent them both to Chris and asked her to help and choose one for me.

The brief this week is to make a girly or spring card using the Stamping up colours Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery and Cameo Coral. If like me you don't own any Stamping Up colours you can choose anything you have closest to those colours. I've used a couple of stamps from the fantastic Stamptivity.
I've really enjoyed myself and can't wait for the next challenge.

Please pop over and take a look at the DT cards and have a go at this great challenge

See you soon
