I'm just here to quickly explain why I seem to have disappeared. The main computer in my house has a virus, so I can't use that, and the laptop I am currently on has a broken fan making it overheat every 10-15 minutes. Hopefully the virus will be gone soon and I can get back to blogging.

One of the birthday's at the end of this month is one of my friends who has now become kitchen manager at the Cafe she works in. I have made this card for her as a back-up. I have a stamp set on order which I want to make her card with, but if it doesn't get here on time she will receive this.

Volcano Birthday

This card was really quick and simple to make, but I really enjoyed colouring the lava. I just sized this Dustin Pike image to fit the card coloured it and stuck it on the card front.
Here is a closer shot to show the colours merging in the lava.

Sweet wishes

I recently received my last order from Elzybells, so I thought I should have a play with some of the stamps. Here is a CAS card made using the 'Hey Cupcake' set.

D2D Thank You

Here is my card using this weeks D2D freebie. I used my circle punches with the image to create the background for the card.

Record player

This is going to be my Dad's birthday card. His birthday is on Halloween, but I think he's probably had enough Halloween themed cards from me before. This record player is from Starry Night Studios

First birthday

Yesterday I mentioned I need to get a few birthday cards done for the end of this month, but for some reason I skipped ahead to the end of next month and made this card for James' cousin's daughter who will be turning one. I made the faux patchwork using papers from the 'Watercolours' and 'Rainbow' mat stacks by Sizzix. The adorable image is by Mo's Digital Pencil, I've seen her stamps on a few people's blogs but only just got around to getting myself some.

1 Year Anniversary

The end of this month is quite a busy time for birthday's so I'm trying to get ahead on the cards. This one is for James' sister and her husband who will be celebrating their first anniversary in a couple of weeks.
I used the same five papers to add a decorative strip on the inside.

Here is my card using this weeks D2D freebie. The image on the inside is from Guylou's Inimitability.

This pocket digi was the freebie with the colour challenge on CDAC, but I didn't use the right colours so I'm not entering it. I've sat Joszette from the 'Les Coquettes' set by Stamp Insanity on top of the pocket.

Birthday girl

This sweet image is a freebie from Stamp Insanity. She is a Valentine's day image, but she is only holding a Valentine's card which is fairly well hidden so she can be used for anything really.

Bass baby

This card is for two challenges. The challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Girlz was 'bling it on' so I have given her a glittery bass and earrings, and added some gems. The second challenge is this weeks CPS sketch.

Circle Paper

I had the idea for this paper in my head all day and made it straight after getting home from work. Usually things don't go exactly how I want them to look but this paper went pretty much perfect!

Halloween set

I've been using more Elzybells stamps today. I've made a set of five really simple Halloween cards. They were really quick to make, but I think they came out quite cute.

Nice board

After yesterday's post about not using digi stamps for a while I realised what stamps I needed to use. Elzybells is closed now :( so I used some Elzybells stamps for today's card.

The natural look

Other than my Christmas cards a few posts back most of my cards recently have been made using digi stamps so I have challenged myself not to use them for a couple of days. Here is my first non-digi card.


Here is my card for the Krafty Girls Challenge, using Download Diva.
Here is the inside.

Roxette easel

It's been a while since I did three posts in one day, but I've been busy today and I wanted to share everything. Roxette is from Make It Crafty, and I coloured her using a mixture of promarkers and sakura pens.


This image by Digi Stamps 4 Joy reminded me of one of my friends as she loves to try out different syles with her hair, so this will be going to her at some point.

Christmas in September part 2

Here are the second five of my ten Christmas cards for September. All of these were made using only the Nitwit Collections 'Still Jolly Hearts' activity pack which came with this months issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft.

CAS sympathy

I spent most of today finishing off an order so I just had time to make this CAS card using this weeks D2D freebie.

Sunday, 26 September 2010


Here is my card using one of the other Kenny K images I bought recently. I coloured him using pencils which is not something I do often, but I thought they would be the easiest way to get all the small parts like his tattoos.

Devilish Donna

Kenny K has so many great designs in his shop it was hard for me to limit myself to only buying three, but I managed it and Devilish Donna is one of the images I chose. I created the background using the 'Rock Star' set by Inkadinkado.

Glitter fairy

I used another image of the cute fairy from Beccy's Place for this card. Those glittery papers ended up getting glitter all over the place, but I think it was worth it!


Today's card is just a quick and simple one. Image and sentiment are both from Doodle Pantry.

Geeky gift set

Yesterday i went shopping and found a book called 'Night of the Living Trekkies'. I had to buy it since James is a fan of both Zombies and Star Trek. Then today I found this Zombie freebie on Make It Crafty, so I merged the two together to make this gift set for him.
Here is the card by itself.
And here is the bookmark by itself.

Cats and Pumpkins

I have a couple of cards to share today, both using similar images. The first uses this weeks DI freebie.
The inside:
The second card uses an image from Patties Creations, which was from a challenge on CDAC.

Both cards were finished using the 'Happy Haunting' set by Elzybells.

The Lord is good.

I am hoping by the time this post appears the card will have made it's way to it's recipient. This sentiment is from Doodle Pantry.

I recently printed off a lot of digi stamps, which is why all the last few (and the next few) posts are using digi stamps. This image was the Kenny K freebie a couple of months back. The papers are from the 'Just Chillin Girls' 6x6 pad by Making Memories. I added a pearl and a bit of embroidery thread to finish off.

You make me smile

I got my favourite sentiment set out again for this card. Those Kidz Quotes are just too cute! The image is this months freebie from Kenny K.
I added a strip of paper on the inside too, just to finish it off.

So tweet!

More digi freebies! Can you tell I've been collecting them? This time the two images come from Doodle Pantry and the sentiment is from Fire Cracker.
