Thank You Card!

Hi Friends and passers by!

Well what can I say about the weather it's just gorgeous here in Southend so I'm off to take a stroll down to the beach! Anyway before I go I thought I would share with you a card I made late last night. I was very lucky that part of my birthday presents from the lovely Lorraine were some gorgeous stamped images. I have used one of these to make a thank you card. You can find the lovely Lorraines stunning work on her blog here.

The image is Gorjuss Girl bear hug and I coloured her with Promarkers, the checked paper is from Papermania Capsule Collection and the lovely dark pink paper is also Papermania and from the Forever Friendes Pink Parfait collection. The lace and pins is Wild Orchid Crafts, the flowers are Pink Gem and Joanna Sheen, the sentiment is Wild Rose Studio and the pearls are from stash.

I am also entering the card in to the Papertake Weekly Challenge which this week is to use flowers.

So I hope you all like this and thank you for taking the time to look at my blog and any comments you leave would be lovely.
Have a lovely sunny day!

Friendship Card Swap (May)

Hi Friends

This is my card I made for the May friendship card swap over on the Docrafts forum. My swap partner is the very talented Natalie (NGCARDS) you can find her blog here. The card I received from Natalie was gorgeous and I struggled on what sort of card to send her back. In the end I purchased a new stamp from LOTV. I'm so pleased with it and really enjoyed making this card. The image is coloured with Promarkers. I used lilac paper, papers from the Henbury Lane range from Papermania, these are just gorgeous papers, sentiment stamp is from Pink Gem. flowers, card candy and ribbon are from stash..

Thank you for looking and any comments are much appreciated.

My First Whiff of Joy Stamp!

Hi Friends and those just passing by.

Ok who took away the sun? I was off to a garden show today, the lovely Leigh (charity crafter) gave me a couple of free tickets to the spring show in Southend this Bank Holiday weekend. Thank you Leigh and Steve. Hope the weather is better tomorrow!

Anyway I thought I would share with you a card I made a few days ago, with my very first Whiff of Joy stamp. I do like a nice girly stamp and this one I love. To make this, I stamped the image and coloured her with Promarkers. The papers are Papermania (forever friends pink parfait), pale pink Bazzill card stock, flowers are Wild Orchid and Prima, the sentiment is Wild Rose Studio, ribbon, pearls and bling are from stash. I scalloped the edges with the Xcut punch. I'm really pleased with the way it's turned out.
Any comments you wish to leave are much appreciated and thank you for taking the time to look at my blog.

Hope the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend improves! take care all.
