Hello Everyone,

It's starting to warm up here so I am very happy. I created this card for an Ebay customer who wanted a more personalised version of soldier card in my store. I used Priscilla's Midnight Madness Sketch #69to help create this card.
I used TGF soldier and change the wording on banner from the TGF three bunnies set. All paper is from Kaisercraft.

Mermaid colour challenge

Hello everyone,

I decided to give myself a challenge a colour one. Your welcome to try this combo yourself.
The combo is -

Black, Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry.

This is the card I create with the colours. I used Current Ebbtide from Sweet November Stamps and coloured her in with copics to match the colour combo. As Copics didn't have a Rich Razzleberry colour for her hair I used R59 and R29 to create the shades then went over it with V09. I added Glitter glue to her crown and around the borders. The sentiment and Designer Paper from Stampin' UP!.

I planned this card with several challenges in mind : the midnight maddness sketch #68, Speedy The Cat's Friend's challenge - Frienship, Wild Orchid - make it sparkle and Stampin' For the Weekend - Anything goes.

Thank you for Looking

Cards for men decoupage

Hello everyone,

Today's card is for the cards for men challenge decoupage. I have entered my card although you have to click on the picture to understand what I have done.

I layered the Peter Pan image from The Greeting Farm to create a 3d image. I was going to show you various angles so you can see the different layers but my memory card is mysteriously missing.
Thank you for looking,

So glad we're friends Mermaid

Hello Everyone,

I made this card for two challenges today.  The first challenge is Wild Orchid Lace challenge.  I thought I missed out on the challenge and I had no lace.  I found some lace and went to work into trying to fit into this week's Priscilla Midgnight madness sketch.    I fell in love with the little otter so I and as soon as I saw him I knew he'd fit this sketch.   I coloured Shimmer Redkelp with copics and coloured the jewelry with white gel to make them look like pearls then I added crystal effect to make them pop.  The bubbles and Sentiment is from SU's Best Yet and circle circus Stamp Sets.

I really love how it turned out.  Thank you for looking.

Pink, Orange and Saffron Thank you

Hello Everyone.   This was my first attempt at making my own flowers and using buttons on my card.  It was easy to make:  I just punched out three scallop circles, crushed them and put them through the SU Crimper several times until they were able to be peeled apart to make six.  I also tried an normal circle punched and it seemed to work fine.  I attached the button using Crystal Effects.
I layered the Rain Miss Anya image by stamping it twice and used dimensions to pop it up to create the 3d effect.
The colour scheme is for the Colour Create Challenge which we had to use Pink, orange and Saffron and over at Speedy Cat and Friends we were asked to make thank you cards which I did.

I better go as my little darling has a middle ear infection.

I made this card to celebrate their 2nd birthday. I participated in the last year and it was alot of fun. I decided to use Wendy stamp and I paper peiced the dress and hair ribbon. I have also added faux stitching. The Papers are from Stampin' Up! Vintage Vogue. I used copics to colour her in and if you look closely I have added things to the book to celebrate The Greeting Farm's birthday.

Can you see Marie???

Just so you don't think I'm a stalker or anything, this was the photo given on the blog after several TGF fans wanted to know what Marie looked like. Like most people I was surprised at how young she was. I can't believe I've been buying and playing with TGF stamps now for under two years, WOW.
Congrats on your success and I hope to be buying more TGF stamps in the future.

Please head back to the main blog list to find out who is next.
I will be part of the Blog Hop and at the end will give my TOP Five blogs/cards, maybe it will be yours.
Enjoy yourselves, thank you for looking

I'm Spotty for you!

Hello everyone,

I made this card with several challenges in mind. I used the beautiful sketch at MOJO Mondays, I'm almost too late to enter it but I will get it there on time. Over at Simon Says they want spots lots of spots. I haven't done Simon Says Challenge for a while so I though I better play along, so I used a Rich Razzleberry ribbon as my inspiration, which led my to the other challenge I haven't played for along time Anya Ink which was black and White plus another colour. So I knew I had to use the Rich Razzleberry. I found the closest Copic to use which was R59 and coloured in her dress and feather as I didn't want too much colour. Since it was going to be black and white I found some dotty black and white DP from Kaisercraft and followed the sketch. I added dots to the dress for more dottiness and around the borders.

I hope you like it.
