Chocolate box

Hi everyone,
How are you all?
I have been off work this week and typically have got a cold! Isn't that always the way, you have time off and get ill so you don't feel like doing anything! 
Luckily I still have the energy to make a card!

I have made this card using 'chocolate box' by Lili of the Valley. I stamped and coloured the image last year but never got round to putting it on to a card so have made this 5x5 number to add to the box!

I used snippets of card to make this card. The spotty paper is pink petticoat.

I added hobby craft flowers, a purple brad and some pink pearls.

Rudolph Day Challenge

Hi All!

Woohoo! I have made my first entry for Sarn's Rudolph Day Challenge, the first of the year!

I got some lovely coloured gems and wooden snowflakes for Christmas and this is their first outing. I used a LOTV cute square and added stickles and some red cord. Papers are from Pink Petticoat. I also used a new Distress Ink Pad I got for Christmas too, it is 'Antique Linen' and is the first time I have ever used distress inks! You can't really see the result in the photo but I am really pleased with the way it turned out in RL.

As I used snippets up (red papers) I would like to enter this card in to Di's Snippet Challenge.

Another one to add to the box! This year it is my resolution to try and build up my 'pink box', the box I hold all of my cards in. Last year I had the most cards I had ever made, then sold them all on a stall so now don't have too many :-( 

I get very envious when I see other people's card stashes! I need to build mine up so hopefully you will see lots more cards from me, trying to fill up my box! What do you keep your cards in and do you have many?

Monkeying around part 2!

Hi all,
here is monkey number 2! I am not so keen on monkey number 2, I was disappointed with my promarkers, one had dried out and I didn't realise until I started colouring monkeys mouth hence the random line! (Hopefully you can't see too much) does anyone have any tips for dried out promarkers? Or is it a case of say bye bye and throw in the bin?

I would like to enter this card in to Pixies crafty snippets challenge as all of the papers used snippets, slowly trying to get through my pile!

I would also like to enter this card into bugaboos bingo challenge!

Monkeying around

Hi everyone, hope you are well and keeping warm in this chilly weather! 
Today I will be sharing a card I made for a little boy. I also made this in blue but a slightly different version. I definitely prefer the green monkey as the papers are slightly embossed and I think the sentiment gives it a nice touch.

Silver anniversary card

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around for a week or so, I've been very busy making a project for my Mum and Dad's Silver Anniversary. I will share this with you another day as they have not received it yet, however they have received their card so I can share that today!

I made this card with the intention of it being quite CAS as I wanted it to be quite special for them.
I added Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and some punches from hobbycraft. I used pearlised card and was searching for hours looking for the right textured paper to go with it and voila I found a snippet of cream textured card in my snippets box!! I used it for the frame behind the sentiment and some of the flowers.

I topped it off with ribbons and pearls (the ribbon was straight by the way, I think it is the angle I took the photo from)!

My Mum and Dad went to Las Vegas for their Anniversary and saw Celine Dion live at Caesars Palace, I was very jealous as I am a big fan of hers! So glad they had an amazing time though. They took the card with them to Las Vegas (which I also made a box for on my hougie board so it didn't get squashed in their case!) and we video called each other when they opened it, they loved it so I was really pleased!

Fab and forty!

Hi everyone, how are you all?
Have you all gotten over the Christmas illnesses that have been floating about!

I made this card for my Aunty for her 40th birthday last week. I'm sorry this photo is really blurry, I took it in a rush before I sent it off in the post! 

I used the lovely Bugaboo image, a sentiment by TLC and some  papers by Pink Petticoat. The flowers were from my stash, ribbon using up some snippets, along with the pink backing card. I put stickles on the image for the  bubbles to add some glamour!
