Using Ribbon

This ribbon has been at the bottom of my stash for a while now and thought I could use it with this card. Also used a Daisy and Dandylion stamp coloured with promarkers (again!)

I've entered this card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge - Ribbons and Pearls

First Sketch

This is my first sketch challenge, really enjoyed doing this and looking forward to having a go at another one in the future.

I have entered this card into the Polka Doodles Challenge - Red, White and Blue + sketch.


I recieved my stamps from Polka Doodles this week and can't stop playing with them. I've used masking techniques for this card and coloured in using my ever favourite Promarkers.

I am sure that I will be putting more of my creations on here using Polka Doodles products.

This card has been entered into the Alphabet Challenge K for Keys.


I love this stamp from LeLo Designs drawn by Nancy Hain. Looks like he has found a quiet corner of the garden to think and also found a little friend to talk to.

Coloured in using Promarkers and matching backing papers, couldn't put a bow on a little boys card so opted for some blue paper string and a red brad to go with the papers and his top and trouser.

I have entered this card into:

Raise The Bar - "oh to be a kid again"
Pear Tree Designs - Challenge 32 Free For All
One Stop Craft Challenge - Week 114 Card For A Male.

Bon Voyage!

This card was created for the Alphabet Challenge - J for Journey.
I thought an old map would be a great background paper. Found out my travel stamps (really glad I had that sort out) and tried to create a postcard effect.

So Cute

I've been wanting to use this paper from LLB for a long time but couldn't match it up with anything, when I got this little girl stamp I could just see her sat under the pink flowers having a quiet little conversation with her best friend. She reminds me of a little girl I used to know many moons ago.

This card was made for the Pear Tree Designs Challenge 31 with the theme of Circles.
I've use Papermania products and thought that the colours were a bit different for a baby card and the Forever Friends bear stickers fitted the circles just right.

A Wish For The New Year

Finally I am back to it. The last couple of weeks I have sorted and re-organised my craft area, hopefully to make things a bit more efficient and perhaps easier to tidy-up when I've finished a good messy session.

My first blog challenge of the year is for Polka Doodles and what a very apt title. A Wish For The New Year. My wish is happiness and I hope that all of you can squeeze out as much as you can in 2011.

My plans for this year are to use as much of my bits and pieces and scraps as I can and try as many new techniques as possible.
