Playing the Guitar

Hi Everyone

Today I have for you a card I made for my dad's birthday. He loves playing the guitar, so this is very apt. Fabulous image to use and my dad loved his card.

I have used Copics, Walnut Distress Ink and lots of Stickles.

I would like to enter the following challenge:

LOTV Ideas to Inspire ~ Boy Oh Boy!

That's it for today. Thank for visiting my little blog and for any comments you leave.

Take care & have fun!

Hi  Everyone

I have been a bad blogger again, so sorry I haven't been to visit your blogs much recently. I will be about soon.

Sam's back is nearly back to normal after hurting his Coccyx over a month ago now. He has recently been able to play football and is nearly there with sitting down correctly, but is still having to use a cushion to sit on the rock hard chairs in school!

Today I have made a card using a digi from Digistamp Boutique. This is a fabulous image to use. I have used Copics and have added Stickles to various areas, lights, smoke and wheels but it doesn't show up in the photo.

I am entering this card into the following:

Digistamp Boutique ~ May Customer Competition

Well that's it for now.  Thank you for any comments you leave, I really appreciate them.

Take care and have fun!

Hello Everyone

Firstly I would like to say  a big 'Hello' to my new followers.

It has been a hectic week or so as my 11 year son Sam bruised his Coccyx at football training (he did a sliding tackle) He woke up the next day in floods of tears as he couldn't get out of bed, as he was in so much pain. Sam still can't sit down properly and has to use a cushion. I went into school and sorted out a teacher's chair for him to sit on in class as he was using two small plastic ones (having to sit on his side) and was very uncomfortable, coming home worse than when he went in.
The doctor said it will take a least a couple more weeks to get better. I can sympathise with him as I badly bruised mine many years ago and it took months to get better, in fact I couldn't even pick up my newborn baby at the time.

Anyhow onto my card, I have used a fabulous digi image from Mo Manning, I just love her work.

I am entering this into the following challenge:

Mo Manning ~ #181 Spring

Well that's it for now. The sun is shining and the washing is calling me! Will be back soon with another card.

Take care and have fun! And thank you for any comments you leave.

Something a little different!

Hello Everyone

Today I have something a little different for you.

I have used a couple of Inkylicious Stamps which I love. While I was at the 'Make it' show in Farnborough the lady on the Inkylicious stall showed me how to get this effect with these stamps, so I thought I would have a go. I have two ink pads from Impress that I haven't used in ages, so using my ink dusters I applied them to some card, very effective. I have also added some stickles to some of the leaves for a bit of bling.

Well that's it from me today. Thank you for visiting my little blog and for any comments you may leave.

Take care!

Shy Girl

Hi Everyone,

I am so sorry but I have been a very bad blogger by not posting for a while, so here goes:

Today's card has been made using a digi image from Mo Manning called 'Shy.' So cute! I have used Prima papers which I love, inked the edges in Tea Dye and added lots of Stickles (not showing up very well in the picture) I have also used Copics and Prisma Pencils to colour the image.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge:

Challenge #177 ~ For the Women in our Lives!

Well that's it, off to have a long soak in the bath! The children are on their half term this week and next, so Aimee is having a tooth brace fitted on Thursday at the hospital. She is really looking forward to it. Hopefully I will be able to post another card soon as we are having a quiet one this week. Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you leave.

Take care,

Big hugs,

Hello Everyone,

Hi Everyone

And a belated Happy New Year. Hope you had a lovely time over Christmas.

For this card I have used a Die Cut, I love this image and will probably invest in it as a digi, such gorgeous colours, not sure if I can make it look as good as this though!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge:
