Dragons Birthday

Hiya, I've finally managed to get my first card made using my Paper Shelter images, this one is called Dragons Birthday, not sure why I just felt like it was a girly dragon, must be the try a boy dragon next. I coloured her with copics, then I didn't like the way the icing looked so I smothered it in glitter, much more yummy now. Used Doodlebug papers, EK border punch, had these flowers for ages, and nesties. Not sure if I like the Happy Birthday sentiment, might pull that off

I thought I'd have a break from Valentines cards I made this last night ,I'd been thinking of Summer all day so I chose some summer colours to cheer me up, January is such a grey month, but at least the nights are getting a bit brighter now.

This image is Taking care of flowers from Soft Pencil Digi's I coloured it with copics and plenty of glamour dust, the papers are Memory Box, McGill fern punch, Prima flowers, yellow brads and ribbon from stash.
Had my Mother in law over for tea tonight, lovely night but I kept thinking about my new Digi's I have recieved from The Paper Shelter I was lucky enough to have been chosen to be on their new DT Team, yahoo , you should pop over and take a look at the wonderful images, hoping to get my first card up on Sat.

Be Mine

Hi there, hope your having a great weekend, afraid I've got to work all weekend so not much crafting getting done, I made this card last week, just havn't had time to post it, most of the challenges I did it for have ended, but a few more have come up that it will fit in with.
Still working on my Valentines cards, it will be Mothers Day before we know where we are, the years seem to go so quick at the moment, just when I'd like them to slow down.
Penny black stamp, coloured with copics, V&A papers ,ribbon,black pearls and sentiment from stash.

Hi there, another easel card from me again, this card is for Kelly she isgoing to be 18 on Monday,can you remember when you was 18 ********** no me neither seems like a hundred years ago

I've used a gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp that I havn't used for ages, and I don't know why I've not used it cause its one of my favorites. I coloured it with copics covered the moon with glamour dust then stuck little tiny clear gems where the stars are. Mounted it onto mdnight blue card embossed with a dots cuttlebug, then all round the edge I've used dark blue and clear gems. A girl can never have too much bling on her 18th.
I've used Paper Artsy papers, the ribbon, slider and brads from stash

Hi there, I've managed another calendar today, if I dont get a move on January will soon be gone if it goes as quick as last year.
My last day off work today, been shopping this morning looking for a swimsuit, I'm on a keep fit drive, years ago I had one with a skirt attatched and I fancied one like that, maybe sleeves to cover my arm wings, oh and legs to cover the cellulite, oh and maybe a girdle to pull my bum and tum in a bit (lot), I think I might be looking for a long while. Dave says I need one of those Victorian ones, hes not far wrong actually.

This is a Sarah Kay stamp coloured with copics, Papermania papers, primaflowers, a new die cut buttefly by CraftsToo I got for Chrissie, wooden beads and orange roses from stash.
