Sorry It's Late!

I got this awesome freebie stamp ages ago from MayzyArt and have been intending to do this card ever since, but it never seemed to come together! Finally it has!

I used papers from the Paper Stack magazine, Vol. 4 layered on navy card from the papermill. I cut the clock on my cameo and of course used my promarkers to colour the T.A.R.D.I.S and Doctor. And added some twine and two buttons.

This is inside of the card!

Herzlichen Gl├╝ckwunsch zum 40. Geburtstag

I made this card for a friend of a friend - the image is from Kenny K, coloured with my Promarkers and the sentiment is computer generated.

The papers were from a new pack I got a couple of weeks ago but hadn't used yet, American Crafts Crate Paper Route 66. I cut the paper and image on my silhouette using 'stitched' square/circle files, layered it all up on black card and cut the stars on my silhouette too.

Sailor Bear

This card is for a friends Dad, who's birthday is next month, but since I'm going to see her in a week, I thought I'd take it with me now and save myself the postage (and remembering it!) later, lol!

I used an image from KaDoodleBug Designs, coloured with my ProMarkers and a computer generated sentiment. The papers are from Jen Hadfield's Pebbles pack, layered on grey card from the papermill. The Anchor border and the rope frame were cut on my cameo and I finished with a few little grey pearls, because we know I can't resist.

Thank You For Your Hospitality

It's really a good job I had such a productive weekend because the last couple of days have been very unproductive - on all fronts, not just the craft front, oops!

The rest of the week is going to be fairly busy, we're going on holiday next week and I have a lot of stuff to sort out for that, hopefully I will still find time to get something done, but I wanted to get something done today even if I don't for the rest of the week (month really, because we're away for two weeks)

I used an image from Digi Darla, coloured with my promarkers and popped it behind the window. The window, curtain and sentiment banner were all cut on my cameo. The papers are from My Minds Eye, with a bit of ribbon from my stash.

I is feeling very productive today, three cards!

I used a Pollycraft image for this card, coloured with my promarkers. The papers are from Jillibean Soup, the Apple Cheddar Soup pack, on a red card base. The sentiment and apples were cut on my cameo and I used a few little pearls to embellish.

Perfect Pear

It's not often that I look at a sketch and go 'ooh that' but this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch came together in my mind pretty quickly! And then I got distracted with other things and nearly forgot to make it in time, oops!

I used papers from Recollections Charming pack, layered on a brown card base. I cut one of the papers with a note pad cutting file on my cameo and cut the circle frame on there too. The sentiment and adorable pear stamps are from Birdie Brown and I coloured the pears with my promarkers and added three little brown pearls as the only embellishment.

Friends Don't Let Friends Wine Alone

After fairly nice weather yesterday morning, last night we got more rain and today is as dull as dishwater. Meh. On the plus side, I started the day with a skype chat with my sister and my two gorgeous nephews!

I used a Bugaboo image and sentiment for this card, coloured with my trusty promarkers. The papers are from The Blackcurrant Stack, layered on card from the papermill. And I added a couple of flowers (I had despaired of not having purple flowers actually, but it tuns out these were tucked at the back of my flower drawer! I should really check out what else is hiding in their some day, lol!) and some gems, to finish.

I love the metallic flowers on the paper, unfortunate, it's a pain to photograph without it reflecting the light, lol! But it came out alright, I think!
