It's Snooze O'clock

Hello Friends, I hope you are all having a good weekend. I hope you are getting some crafting in? I'm having a crafting day with the Olympics on in the background. Anyway I've made a male card, not one of my favourites. I do like things to be girlie, but I was really pleased with the way it turned out. I've used another new die, Tim Holtz's 'Weathered Wood Clock die and as I didn't have the right colour for the design I coloured the paper using distress inks. So here it is.
Ingredients for Card
Fizzy Moon 'All About Him' Stamp
coloured with Promarkers
Papers are Papermania 'Bookprint and Portobello Road'
Tim Holtz Weathered Clock Die
Martha Stewart Punch
Card Candi

I thought I would give this card to the boyfriend for his birthday as this is how he looks when he's not working and especially when sport is on the TV!  Have a great week ahead and lets hope the sun comes back, it's blooming dull here in Southend.

Watering the Roses

Good Morning, you may have noticed I've given my blog a bit of a makeover. I found this background and thought it was apt, as I'm a Type 1 diabetic. You would think in this day and age that we would have a cure for this awful disease. Hopefully one day soon!
Anyway on to my card that I've made and isn't this image so cute? It's a Stampavie one by Penny Johnson - Little Tobi Watering the Roses. So here it is.

Penny Johnson Stamp
coloured with Promarkers
Paper is Magnolia
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sizzix Embossing Folder
Ribbon, Pin and Pearls from stash

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last card they were lovely to read and very much appreciated.

LOTV - Blossom

Hello Peeps,  I know it's been a while and I know I'm a useless blogger. I have lots of reasons for not posting, but it would take a lifetime to tell you and I think we would all rather make some cards.
Also I've heard a rumour that we are expecting some summer weather this weekend, what do you think, are those pigs flying yet?
Anyway now that my mojo is back I've managed to make some cards recently and I have one to show you today and here it is.

I so adore this image from Lili of the Valley and it's the first time I've inked her up. I treated myself to the Tim Holtz - on the edge doily die and I love it and think it works perfectly with this card.

Ingredients Used Are
 Lili of the Valley Image coloured
with Promarkers
Lucy Cromwell Papers from Papermania
Nesties and Memory Box Dies
Flowers and Ribbon Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls and Cute button from stash

I hope you all like the card and I have a new motto 'I must do better with blogging and try and blog more often'. Have a great weekend friends and thank you for sticking with me.

Hugs Debbie x
