Hanna sketch

Hi everyone,

Today case has been inspired by a very talented teenager from Sweden called Hanna. I am a big fan of hers as she makes these incrediable cards, and projects. She is just amazing. If you are a big fan of Magnolia then you will know what I mean. I used the sketch she has designed. I used the JUST DANDY image from Mark's Finest Paper and I am entering this card into the Speedy Cat and Friends challenge make it sparkle.
I have added glitter to the edges of the border and onto the image itself. I have also added dimontes for extra sparkle.
Thank you for looking and please pop over to Hanna's blog to say hi from me.

xmas Cracker Teddy

Today's Card is for the Lily of the Valley sketch challenge designed by Donalda. I chose the Xmas cracker bear although I could chose any of the xmas bears from Lily of the valley as they are super cute. This image however suited my purpose as I wanted to do some paper piecing with the craker to tie into the background paper. I also wanted to start on my Christmas Cards before I leave it too late.

Thank you for looking,

Just for you southern nightscape

Hello everyone,

I made today's card for the Colour Q challenge. I used the colours as inspiration. Using my Kaleidacolor blue breeze I brayered onto photo paper, then stamped the image from the JUST FOR YOU stamp set with versa marker then embossed it in black to make it pop out from the background. I then put stars in the sky (including the southern cross) with white gel pen. The used faux brads/button using one of the stamps from CIRCLE CIRCUS stamp set.

Thank you for looking.

African Sunset elephants


I made these Sunset Cards as soon as I goodies from Mark's Finest Papers arrived. The stamp set in African Veldt . I brayers yoyo yellow on both circle all over, then using pumpkin patch Kaleidacolour stamp pad I brayers the orange/red onto the circle trying to make a setting sun in the middle. I then sponged brown around the edges and on the bottom.

I love the effect I hope you do too.

fabulous mojo 176

Well I had this rose image stamped for another card but I couldn't stop staring at it and I wanted to put it with the paper shown in the card. Then the Mojo sketch 176 came along and it was made for this rose. The Rose image is from SU a rose is a rose stamp set and the wonderful sentiment is from Mark's Finest Paper Just Dandy stamp set.

Thank you for looking,
Please leave a comment so I know you've been.

I have used the MoJO Monday's sketch 176 as inspiration this week. I had some left over DP from a previous card so I used that that the colour scheme. The Night of Navy didn't come into it until I had to put the card together, then it seemed out of place, so I added some dots however my pen part of the SU marker had dried up and the other end was kind of fuzzy from using it on stamps so it was a little over the top than I would've liked. If I had a new pen I would've put faux stitches around the sentiments.

Thanks for looking

Mojo 175 Mother' s day gebras

Hello everyone,

I have created todays' card using the sketch from Mojo Monday's #175 sketch. I love this sketch and will probably make many cards with it.

The colour scheme is actually inspired by a blush coloured gerbra that was in a bunch of flowers given to me by my husband for our wedding anniversary. We have been married now for 13 years... amazing.

I the gerbra's middle was burgundy but I chose Expresso as I had no DP in burgundy. Will rectify that I am sure by next month.. LOL.
I used the Flourishes Gebra set and cut it out as the main image. The sentiment is from SU and I stamped the blush card with expresso using the SU Circus Cirles stamp set.
