Valentines Day Card

I have made a valentines card for my hubby which I am also entering into Cardmaking & Papercraft manazine's sketch challenge. 

I have used Papermania papers and some embelishments I had, the image is Cuddly Buddly and I have coloured it with my trusty ProMarkers!

Hope you like it xxx

Cards, Cards, Cards

Well, something clicked in tonight.  I have made three cards lol

The first two are for Nathan's friends, he has two birthdays within 3 days of each other, so I went for the same KennyK image and coloured them with ProMarkers in different colours.  I used coredination card which I embossed and lightly sanded, then mounted the lot on a 5 x 5 card.

The next one is for one of the mums at school.  I used a craftworks card blank, and the spotty paper is from a freebie stack from Quick Cards magazine, I used my Martha Stewart punch around the page on this and also on the sentiment, which I also used a little silver ink round the edges.  Again I used ProMarkers and some glitter and coloured some gems to match the bows on the shoes which is from Bugaboo.  I then used some lilac flowers from my stash and wound some silver ribbon around the stem before attaching to the card.

Thanks for looking.  I need to go to bed now and I am nodding off at the keyboard lol xxx

Good morning, I would like to say hello to my newest follower ...  thanks for spending some time with me.

I have been a bit, stuck in a rut, lately, but think I am starting to get out of it.  I was having a "block", loads of cards to make and absolutely no ideas lol

However, I managed a card last night for a lady on DoCarafts for her son's 18th birthday.  I used a Mo Manning digi stamp which I coloured with ProMarkers and then some coredinations card which was run through the cuttlebug with Spots and Dots and finally sanded.  I used a 6x6 card base and added '18' peel offs and a sentiment.

I have also done some colouring to try and get the creative juices flowing, so lets hope this works!

My new Open University course starts this week as well, so need to get my head stuck into those books lol
