Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Blog Challenge June 2012

Morning peeps....well yet again another blog challenge lol, seriously I love
 making the cards for these challenges as it gives me something to focus on
that is different than making a card to order or for one of the family members.
This weeks Kraftin Kimmies challenge is to make a card to the same or very
simular layout to the sketch that they have set using one of their stamps.
As I have a few of their stamps, which are all lovely and cute so I had trouble
deciding which one to use!! I decided on using "Friends are for Hugging" and
then coloured her in using my pro & flexmarkers. I then cut around her image
and slightly curved the whole of her image to give a feeling of depth to the image.
She was then glued into place using Pinflairs glue gel. The 2 different types of
lace was added to the card and all was securely fixed on place. The sentiment and
flowers were the last things to be glued into place.

I have entered this card into the following blog challenge:

Polkadoodles Blog Challenge Summer Scene Theme Wk 24

Challenge time over at, this time for a Summer Scene theme....

Ive chosen to use the Candy Doodles cdrom from for the image and used both Flexmarkers & Promarkers for the colouring and all the papers and the sentiment circles are from the Pen & Circle mini cdrom collection(again from but not available at all anymore as it is a limited edition mini cdrom and magazine). Ive added a few faux pearls, along the front in 2 different shades of red to compliment the strawberries on the papers. The overal effect of this triple twisted easel is well complimented with the lime green pinks and reds of the papers.
I have entered this card into the following challenge:

Long time no blog!!

My apologies for not blogging for a few weeks again, Ive just not had time!! 
Well Ive been busy getting ready for my last craft fair as Im giving up driving
and selling my car. Its a case of having to due to my failing health.
Looking on the bright side, that will enable me to concentrate on my commission
orders and the blog challenges I take part in, that is to either be a guest or full time
designer for that blog or to win prizes .
I thought I would share two of the cards that Ive busy making (that is inbetween
falling alseep whilst crafting or on the laptop thinking of the verses that were needed)

A competition entry for a blog,
to win sets of stamps, entry requirements
were to use Teal, White and Black
