A simple card

Continuing my theme of blue - really don't know where that came from....

Another simple, straightforward card....

Of course a butterfly and a few gems have to make an appearance!  Have a good weekend everyone....

I used photo paper to make the background with distress ink and water.  I then used Stampin' Up stamps and ink to make the background, a few gems and butterflies and here we have another birthday card.

Bank Holiday

Busy weekend making cards - this is a lili of the valley stamp using some of my new papers I purchased at the weekend.  Pink and orange, not normally two of my 'natural' colours.

Take a peek -

Updates - recent cards

Whilst I may not have been online much, I have been working away on some cards, - take a look

I love the Dandelions, and this is a Hero Arts stamp, where I embossed the dandelions, and used stickles to brighten up the heads, and a gem in each of the centres.  I lightly coloured the ribbon with a promarker, and used Papermania papers.

This next one......

is just a quick card using distress inks for the background and a Stampin' Up flower design, as is the 'celebrate stamp'.  Few gems, and voila - a quick card!

June's entry into the Skipton Craft Challenge

I have a busy month ahead of me, so thought that I would make good use of a bank holiday Monday and complete the June challenge which was to be patriotic, either in colour or to include in design such as crowns ect.

Have a look at my entry - am the first to complete this month, which makes a change as I am normally one of the last!!

A lilli of the valley stamp - making tea which I thought was quick patriotic as well.  Papers from Craft work cards sale at the weekend.  Ribbon I bought on Clitheroe market (the one day that we worked there!!) and the gems from my stash.  Have not put a greeting on it yet, as have a couple of possible options so will keep it open for now.

Other entries should be uploaded soon, - take a look.!/groups/335407343156265/425357197494612/?notif_t=group_comment_reply

May's Skipton Monthly Craft Challenge

I forgot to post this last month.  On facebook I am part of a monthly challenge, and this was entry for May.  We had to use swirls, flowers and gems -

The winner is drawn randomly, - and it was my sparring buddy Pam Miller.  Watch this space for June's entry which is to do with red, white or blue - patriotic theme.
