Yes my little cow is back this time he's dress up with somewhere to go. I am really pleased with how this turned out. I think the sentiment really dress up this card. Card colours are Basic black, Blush Blossom and Whisper White. The cow is coloured with copics. the images can be found at The greeting Farm.
Good morning everyone. I had a late night last night creating this little card. The image is from the greeting farm Miss Anyas and have coloured her using copics and stampin Up! markers. I have put glitter on her headband and little hair bobbles. I then added the flowers using brads. The ribbon is actually pink but my scanner hates pink ribbons. The card is Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip and Kraft. The DP paper is from the Raspberry Tart.

The card layout is from the card sketch challenge held over in SCS.
The sketch was sc225 and it was very good to work with. I enjoy the challenges because they can make you think in a different way.

Entered the naming competition over at the The Greeting Farm to name the three new girl stamps set. Hope my suggestions get chosen. How kewl will that be.

I created the card below due to an accident. I was cuting out 11 by 11cm cards for another project but realised to late that I had the wrong card stock. So I need to use up these "wrong" card bases so I created below. I was surprised how it came together and how each and simple it was to make and how elegent it looks. Now I am knocking up these babies to create a card box set and hopefully sell them in my store.The ribbon on the horitzontal border is actually pink. My scanner doesn't like pink ribbons for some reason.

Well I hope you had a great Easter. I got lots of chocolates so I was happy.

I have been busy creating cards to keep up with my ebay store demands LOL.
I have really been enjoying the SCS card sketch 214 and have man several cards with it. Below is one I have created as a Mother's Day/Valentines Day card.

I made my parents 40th wedding memory book, using envelopes and the day went really well. My mother started crying (with happiness) as read the messages we wrote her.

Hi Everyone

I was inspired by Joey's Rock the Farm layout that I decided to case it.
I absolutely love the cow stamp from the Mcsplendid Farm set. I also know that black and white cards are very popular in my store, so I wanted to create another black and white card for the cow.
I guessed the measurements for 11.3 by 11.3 cm card and put it together. I used signo white gel pen to add dots to the flower.

Hope you like. Have a good Easter everyone.

Well March- April is such a hectic couple of months for me, with birthdays, wedding anniversaries and Easter.

I haven't been able to blog as I have had my eldest daughter's 6th birthday to get ready for. It was her first Kiddy party so I was alittle stressed out about it. I have taken it apon myself to do a beautiful memory booklet for my parents so I will be posting photos of than shortly. In the mean time it will be Easter and then my youngest Daughter will turn 4 at the end of April... so busy busy busy!

But I have been creating new cards here are a sample of them.
This card is for the SCS card sketch challenge SC221.
