Just a quick thanks

I just wanted to pop on and show you a couple of projects that we did in workshop, if I am honest I am not overly confident that people are going to like the projects that I do but the whole point of being a crafter is sharing what you love and I feel I have done this in bucket loads and I sincerely hope it came across.


Its a 4x4 box that can hold jewellery or pot pourri  or other special objects, I could think of loads of uses for it or you can just pop your pens in there, on your craft desk.


I want to say a special thanks to Jo for having the confidence in me to try a workshop for myself, and for the ladies for being so forgiving about my little mishaps, they are a wonderful bunch of ladies, and they are so much fun, and also a special thanks to Tracey, all your help was well appreciated and I was so glad to have it you would not believe nerves gets the better of me as I used to be a lone crafter and not socialise at all until I met Jo and the rest of the group you really have brought me out of my shell.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.

Something a little different

Well I have never done this before, I was halfway through this card when I decided to change my image to fit the theme at Make it colourful, the theme is colouring hair not normal hair colours, I thought this was great as it gets you thinking how you are going to make the hair colour fit in with the colour theme of the card.


I used a blend of Pro-markers and Prismas, and chose purple for my hair colour, but I think it has more of a look like a purple rinse, like what older ladies have, its made my Anya look older than her years. I think next time I should choose funky bright colours so she does not have that rinsed look.

And here is a close up,


I started out with Saffron pro-marker then went over with Lilac, and then Amethyst, and then I deepened the curls with violet blue prisma pencil, I also came across another blog called Just some Lines they also do some excellent digi’s you should go over and have a look, they are currently running a challenge and the theme is Easel cards,  so I would like my Sideways easel to be entered for this challenge also, my die cut blank is custom die cut by Which craft Doncaster, I shall give you a top side view as the extra panel comes in a pack with envelopes as well.


Well I hope you like it thanks for stopping by, see you soon

Here comes the boys

Just found this challenge blog that dedicates its challenges to men and boys cards, , so I'm entering my card in to Pink Gem Lets hear it for the boys, and also Here comes the boys challenge #6 where the theme is sporty, so on to my card,


I used a golfer image which was a free download from do crafts creativity and coloured him in pro-markers, again I used minimal embellishments due to it being a mans card but i figured gem and twine and also some cotton binding would work really well, and on to the close up


Thanks for stopping by

Connie the cow

I have always wanted to do this technique but never got around to it so last week I had a go, and this is what i came up with, a one layer card with Connie my favourite cow with a spot light on her gorgeous face, I used my pro-markers and also my prismas for the spot light and also I used my sketching pencils to shade the B+W areas I finished off with a birthday greeting, all in all the quickest card i have ever done, Top tip though always check on some scrap of the same king of card to see if it will take pro-markers without bleeding. I am entering this for the Cupcake craft challenge one of my favourite challenge blogs.


And the close up in more detail,


That’s all folks, thanks for stopping by

Mother and Baby

Its always good news when some one announces  that they are expecting,  being a mother of two myself it does not seem real unless you tell some one and that's when all the well wishes come in, and i know what it feels like to be broody especially seeing all the design team cards on Passion for pro-markers challenge 106 where the theme is babies, as Emma is expecting, congratulations Emma, so with all those thoughts of how i felt when i first told my family that i was expecting my second child, my daughter Holly, I made this card for the challenge using a stamp which was perfect, and here it is.


I used card blanks from Which craft in Doncaster the rectangle scallop has been scored to form an easel, an open scallop at the front holds the sentiment, and a square open  scallop on the front, papers are DCWV, and ribbon from stash buttons are Stampin up customised with itty bitty punch pack and co-coordinating stamps. And as always the close up of the embellishments,



These mock pearls i made by accident as my glue gun was left on and started to drip so i thought I would put some glitter over them while they were still warm and this is what it finished looking like. I am also entering this card in to some other challenges-:

Craft your Passion: Anything goes

Creative Stamp friends: Dots

Kaboodle doodles: Celebrations

And also Make it Monday: Anything goes, I wish everyone the best of luck with their challenges, and thanks so much for passing through. x
