We're The Perfect Blend

A wonderful friend of mine, who knows my coffee addiction well sent me this awesome Latte Love set from Fiskars a few months ago and this is to my eternal shame, the first time it's seen ink!

I cut a card base in brown and used paper from My Minds Eye. Coloured the stamps in with my promarkers and added a little heart button, some twine and a couple of little gems. It literally took me longer to decide which of the coffee stamps to use first, than to make the whole card, lol!

Summer Step Card

Summer has actually come to N.Ireland for once (as well as the rest of the UK) and so going with the theme, I picked this stamp from Pollycraft and coloured her with my promarkers.

The card base was cut on my cameo, in stampin up daffodil delight card. The sentiment, deck chair and sun were also cut on my cameo.

The papers (except for the sun which was just a random bit out of my scraps box) came from the My Minds Eye Lost and Found 3 pack. And yes, there are gems, because gems are important, lol!

Have A Heroic Birthday

So in a confession that will shock exactly no-one who knows me, I'm like a major geek. And the moment I saw this stamp I knew I had to have it. It's just a pity I don't know more people who would appreciate it, because Superheroes are awesome and Captain America is my favourite and yeah, I'm a geek, I don't even hide it (I really don't, in a twist of irony, I am even wearing a Captain America t-shirt today, although I didn't think about that when I started making this card, lol!)

I used of course, Captain Colin, from Digital Delights, coloured with my promarkers. The sentiment is computer generated and the little shield inside was found through google images but it linked to pinterest and I could not find a source!

I used papers from The Paper Stack Magazine, Volume 4, layered on red and blue card, on a blue card base. My cameo of course cut the stars and borders for the image/sentiment and yes, gems, because, gems are awesome.

Don't Let Life Ruffle Your Feathers!

This was the other card I got made yesterday afternoon, not for any particular challenge this time, but I've been wanting to use the feather stamp since I got it and finally got around to it!

I feel like this should be my advice to myself this last year or so! It's been one thing after another and i've let things get in the way of things I really enjoy, or make things I enjoy feel not so enjoyable! I'm trying to do better on that front - it's an on going thing! - but maybe I shall make this my new motto!

The feathers and sentiment were freebies from a Hot of the Press set I got in a magazine, that I've been dying to use!

I used some freebie paper from another magazine and popped it on some dimension pads to give it a little depth. The humming bird was cut of course on my cameo and I added just a hint of the same blue I used to stamp the feathers to the edge of his wings and finally of course, gems to finish, because we all know I can't resist gems or pearls!

Flying Roxter, Birthday Card

Look a card, yay! I spent yesterday afternoon in my craft room and (all being well!) plan to spend most of the weekend in there too! So there should be more soon!

This card uses Flying Roxter, from Digital Delights, coloured with my promarkers. The papers are from Pebbles Inc, Love You More/Boy Pack, layered on chocolate brown card. Cut the clouds - including the computer generated sentiment - on my silhouette and added a few little gems to finish.

It's been so long since I've submitted to any challenges, hopefully I still remember how this goes!

Wow It's Been Forever!

So yeah, this year has vanished fast! Probably no one even checks here anymore, but maybe a few of my followers are still around!

This hasn't been a great year - hence the lack of cards posted - with my health being not so great and then in May my grandmother passed away and it's just been one thing after another the last month and a half.

I have made a few cards but not as many as I'd have liked and none of them have made them on here, but I've just finished setting up a proper 'craft room' and am raring to go on some card making again! Hopefully there will be something new up in the next few days!

On the good side of this year, my sister had a little boy in April, so I now have two gorgeous nephews to spoil! And I'm in the process of learning to drive, so hopefully I'll have my licence before the summer is out! I can't wait to be able to get a car and get out and see and do stuff, that I've been putting off because getting places on public transport is a major pain!

Hope all my followers are well! Can't wait to share some crafty designs with you again!
