Kanban Lady..

Hi there..

I thought I would recreate a card I made ages ago...ideal to give to mum for her 'box' not too detailed!

I have used my Kanban lady stamps...the set is called 'Day at the Races'.



Coloured with ProMarkers.

Rogue Redhead!

Hi there..

I have been having a play with my Rogue Redhead stamps....sadly they are no longer in business :( 

I had the honour of guest designing for them a few years ago. 

I have used a couple of stamps from the 'Milliner Misses' set..

These stamps look great either coloured or just left Black....For these cards I have coloured with ProMarkers..........but I will be doing some Black and White cards soon.......



I have used papers from a huge pad I got off QVC ...more years ago than I care to remember! I am about half way through the pad now...never thought I would say that!

I have used DIs round the edges.Sentiments are from another huge pack from Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for looking..

Orchids...

Hi there...

Here is the card I made for my niece's 21st...


I have used 'Orchids' a gorgeous Digi stamp. She is coloured with ProMarkers. The background papers are from my never decreasing paper mountains! She didn't need much more...just a few Prima flowers and the die-cut sentiment.

Thanks for looking..

Anastasia.....

Hi there..

It seems ages since I made any cards...or played with my Unity stamps.

My niece's 21st birthday this week gave me the chance to do both!


This is the card I made for mum to send her.

I have used 'Anastasia'    I love her...  The card is quite a large one at 8" square.  She is coloured with ProMarkers. The background paper is by Craftwork Cards... I got it in a bargain pack..the colours are really lovely and soft. I didn't do too much, because I didn't want to hide them...The sentiment is from Tim Holtz 'Handwritten Celebrate' cut 3 times and layered.

Thanks for looking.

Play Time!!

Part 2!

Hi there...

I can't believe that this has taken me all day! I do love how it's turned out though...Another PaperArtsy stamp set slipped into my basket...I do love her..

Inspired by this Tag (thanks Helen) I came up with this...


I am using a Journal by 7Gypsies which is made up of Manilla card and is held together by 3 book rings.......Goodness only knows how long I have had it! 

The background is created with Distress Inks...still my 'go to' to create with! I have then sprayed water through an Alphabet stencil...this is the first time I have tried this and I really love how it turned out. A bit more stamping with some CI stamps and my 'washi tape' stamps again. I stamped her onto the card before doing the background and then stamped her again and coloured her with ProMarkers. I have used a Butterfly off a Finnabair set... I feel sure I have a tape measure stamp somewhere!! I then found these by Unity stamps which I thought would work quite well. A couple of words and I was done.

Thanks for looking.

Play Time!!

Part 1...

Hi there...

I haven't done any crafting for a while....Still feel drained and still coughing..but onwards and upwards...I've just started a weeks holiday, so hopefully that should sort me out!

I had a bit of time yesterday to play with my new Clare Lloyd stamp.. I love ♥ her..


I stamped her onto water colour paper and coloured her using my Derwent Inktense pencils and my water brush.  I created the background with sprays and then texture paste through a stencil. I've created the 'washi-tape' with a couple of the new stamps... I love how these look. Unfortunately the camera didn't like the glossy accents on her lips...that's why she looks a bit weird!

Thanks for looking..

All Dressed Up!!

Hi there ..

Here is a little card I made for mum's box..


She is a very old Penny Black wooden stamp...my very favourite kind!  I have coloured her with ProMarkers. The papers are from my seemingly never ending paper mountains!  I again took inspiration from the very talented Debby.

I am entering her into the following challenges...

'My Time To Craft'  where the theme is 'Girlie'.

'Creative Inspirations' where the theme is 'Anything Goes'

I'll hopefully be back soon..when the coughing subsides!!

Thanks for looking..
