Bearly Mine

Hi there, well my son & DIL have just left and I'm missing them already :'''(
I shan't see them again untill December, so I had a little colour to take my mind off things, this cool dude is brill, and the papers are from Bearly Mine Designs they are a freebie, Bearly Mine are looking for some DT's pop on over and take a look but be quick you only have untill Nov 2nd to apply. There is also some gorgeous Christmas papers aswell I'm half way through that card, look out tomorrow. I thought this rocker went really well with the brick wall, I tried to put some graffiti on it but it didn't look right, I found an old necklace that belonged to my eldest's and popped that on instead.

Hi there, I've had a right lazy day to day, and now I regret it, my son phoned a bit back and said him and Leanne (his wife) are coming to stay next weekend, goodness knows how long it will take me to tdy the spare room, I've taken to using it as a dumping ground. That'll teach me to be a scruffy mare. lol.
But I did manage to get a few cards made :0)
This one is for the lady that works in the Spar shop Judy, her daughter lives in America and she needed an Anniversary card for them, I'm always a bit worried when I make cards for Judy's daughter as she is a big crafter herself and makes gorgeous cards.
I've used some of my new stash, Memory box paper and Sarah Kay first kiss stamp, I coloured it with my copics and used a bit of my Prisma's aswell, netting and ribbon slider from old stash.
Have a good week,

Hiya, here is a card I made for my Hubby it was our Anniversary yesterday, not sure where I got the digi from, it was a freebie, but I saved it to my computer before I was more organised and labeled everything, doh,

Really awfull weather here today, so I ended up working for most of the day, trying to catch up for having yesterday afternoon off. We had a delivery in Grimsby, so my Hubby droped me off at The Hobby House for an hour, you can't beat a bit of crafty retail :0)

Stampavie Blue and Brown

I've coloured it with copics, used K & Co paper with Bazill and distress inked the edges.
Enjoy whats left of the weekend, hope your having better weather than me.

This is a card for my friend, I've used a Sugar Nellie stamp, coloured with copics and glamour dust, papers are papermania, sympathy stamp from Personal impressions, gems from stash.

ICS No 88

Hi there, can't believe its Tuesday again, how the weeks are flying by. We have had two customers in the workshop this week asking for furniture to be reupholstered before Christmas, It amazes me why folks would want their furniture all clean and new just for Aunty Ethel to spill her red wine over, but hey its work and if thats what they want, then who am I to turn them down.

A great sketch from Dawn at ICS this week, she totally amazes me how she keeps coming up with these sketches. Remember you can do what you like with the sketch as long as we can still see it.
We are being sponsored by Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs the lucky winner gets to choose 3 fee digi's.
I'e used a set of snowmen from Stamptivity, cooured with copics and lashings of gitter, the paper is from papermania, ticket stamp from Whimsy, ribbon and gems from stash.

Holly Halloween

Hiya, this is a first for me, I've never made a Halloween card before, we don't celebrate it in England so I've never had the need, I have a friend who's got two Grandaughters that live in America and she couldn't find anything in the shops so I made her a couple, they were fun to make I must say, she didn't want anything too scary as they are only young. This one is for Holly the image is from Pollycraft, thank you very much, the background is a little bat stamp I found silver embossed, ribbon from stash, I coloured the image with copics.
