All dressed up challenge card

This is the first time I have used the blog in a long time, not sure what Im doing yet, but hopefully it will post ok..  I need to link a couple of things and will have to find out how! But at least Ive managed to get the photo up.  I have used Spectrum Noir Pens to colour the image, the papers, Ive no idea about.. theyve been in the box for so long.  The Challenge was Autum Colours/Thank you. and the image is Party Girl from all dressed up. I just love these images, and I want them all... they are available from here..  I have also used Marianne dies for the leaves, and a Martha Stewart punch for the flowers which I also coloured, to compliment the papers.

Christmas Card

Inspired by Sue Wilsons (Creative Expressions) use of Rangers Antique Linen Ink. I love the subtleness of this colour (although my naff camera skills dont do the pic any justice at all).

The elements on this card were all made with Nellie Snellen dies and Punches.

The last one

This is the last card for a month or so, as Im on hols.... Ive used a Kanban stamp set for this card... Viv, and Pam brought me this in Farnborough Make it show earlier in the year.. I think you will agree a very versatile set it is too... Coloured the image with promarkers and spectrum noir.. then added a light gold glitter around the shapes. Quite effective... and very glitzy.

Ive used that stamp again, and coloured it in Aqua colours, n painted over the dress with H2o's metalic paint. The papers are from Papermania, Color Capsule blue. Spellbinders Parisian die, and added ribbon by threading it around the card.

Just Because

Just because this purple piece of paper has been looking at me for the last week. I thought Id have a play... and just for once Im quite pleased with the result... Spellbinder Parisian die, and circle die, Marriane die, sonic punch for the flowers. The sentiment was printing set New Times Roman. and the 2in Just Rite holder



I was inspired by Sue Wilson's use of Yellow, I have quite a lot of yellow card in my stash, and rarely use it. Its a Kanban stamp, coloured with Promarkers, Spellbinder dies, and some of Brenda's roses. plus a little yellow glitter. (I used some glitter from one of those little file's, as I was taking the lid of the file shot out of my hand... glitter everywhere........... including me. Dont yer just hate it when that happens.



I think Ive finaly sorted out the problem with this blog. So hopefully no more rougue emails. I just gotta figure out why it wont let me upload, Its probably the settings.

But at least I can post messages to my Favourite blogs

Watch this space

Sir Stampalot March Challenge

Hi all

Its been a long time since Ive been on here Ive forgotten how to do stuff.. My friend Rosie (next door) passed away in January, and for a number of weeks I was helping her out. At least where I could. She had been suffering with congenital heart disease for a number of years. And for the last few years with Heart failure. But she battled on bravely. I miss her though, as I saw her daily, even if she was out with her Daughter during the day, it would always end with a cuppa and a laugh at mine.

I saw the Sir Stampalot challenge, n thought Id have a go, as I love to use my punches. I have used my all time favourite stamp. Duet by Inkadinkado, Nellie Snellen dies. Dps Sissix and Prima. Small flower punch, tiny sun punch, and to very small leaf punches. The sentiment is inside.

Ive managed to load the photo, now all that remains, is do I remember how to do the link...
