I got my scrap box out for this card, and all the papers used came from there. I've seen a few people working through their scraps lately, and it made me realise how full my scrap box has got.

CYDI? Challenge #34 - It's Sketchy

It's time for a new challenge at Can You Digi It? This time we are following a sketch (which can be found at the bottom of this post). For my card I used Heart Ears Pup by KiniArt. I coloured the image to look like Cassie, my Auntie's new puppy. For the rest of the card I used supplies which I haven't had out in a long time. The paw print is from a set I bought at Poundland, and the sentiment is a peel-off sticker.

Steampunk Birthday

I tend to stick to CAS designs, but I had lots of fun playing around to make this card. The card base is bronze shimmery card. The next layer is a textured light brown paper from my stash, which was inked around the edges with a red ink pad. After that is a paper from the Persimmon Collection by Papermania, which has a strip from a page in an old book down one side and was inked around the edges using a bronze ink pad. The top layer is Key Background by LilyPink Designs, which I printed two of so that I could cut the clock from one of them. The head is a freebie from Beyond The Fringe and the hat is Top Hat, another LilyPink Designs image. All the images were coloured using a combination of pencils and sponging from ink pads. The gold embossed sentiment is from the Worth Repeating set by Stampology. To finish I added some brads. I didn't have brads in the colour I wanted to I filed some silver ones and inked them using a bronze ink pad.

Happy Birthday Richard!

Today is my cousin's boyfriends birthday. Whenever we go to Rossnowlagh while we are in Ireland he will spend most of his time searching the rock's for fossils. I took inspiration from that for his card. I went with lots of grey to imitate the rock colours and used a Doodle Dragon Studios sentiment which has dinosaur bones around it. The papers are from the Black and White Colossal Paper Pack by Papermania.

I also used the paper to decorate the inside of the card.

This is Lulu Framed by Dilly Beans. I have backed Lulu on a paper from the Lost and Found pack by My Mind's eye. For embellishment I added some bakers twine.

Bee Happy

For today's card I printed Bee Happy by Lilypink Designs four times and then coloured and cut out each hexagon. They were then stuck onto a piece of white card, with the sentiment raised using foam pads. The white card was trimmed and layered on black card which was then stuck to the card base. Really CAS, but really fun to do. I stuck the last bee on the inside to finish.

Pictures of Ireland

I have a few pictures from Ireland to share. As I said yesterday it was nice to do a mixture of new things, things we haven't done for years and things which have become traditions.

One of the things which I hadn't done before was visit Belfast Zoo. It is a very impressive zoo, with a great variety of animals and a few which I have never seen before. That was the day I took most pictures. Here are a few of my favourites.

I have been to Giant's Causeway before. It was really nice to go back there now that I'm older and can appreciate it more. It was a shame we went when it was so wet and windy, but it is still a beautiful place. There was also a great view from the top of the difficult path, which we chose to walk. The first picture is the rocks which form Giant's Causeway and the second is the view from the top of the difficult path.

The beach at Rossnowlagh is a must do for us. It is such a beautiful beach. Usually while I'm there I will spend most of my time in the sea, but this time I went exploring on the rocks.

I always like to go for a walk up my uncle's hill while we are there too. It's so peaceful up there, with the only sound being the sheep.

Thinking of You

I am back from my week in Ireland. It was a lovely, relaxing trip. As we visit almost every year it is hard to find new things to do. This time we managed to do a mixture of new things, things we haven't done in years and the things that we have to do every time we go. I will post some pictures tomorrow.

On to my card...I started by spraying a scrap piece of watercolour paper in Maple Creative Colour Spray, then stamped over that using the Flounce set from Papermania's Persimmon Collection. I tied some bakers twine around the watercolour paper. The sentiment is from a Studio G set, that was stamped onto a separate paper and is raised up using foam pads.

Happy Birthday Hollie!

Today is James' cousins birthday. I have used Sweet Birthday by Birds Cards for her card. The cupcake was covered in stickles, and then the image was backed on a paper from the Designstax pad by Papermania. I added a pink gem to each corner to finish.

CYDI? Challenge #33 - Butterflies

It is time for challenge number 33 from Can You Digi It? This time we want to see designs using butterflies. For my card I used Butterfly Kisses by Carla's Creatures. I think that dog has such a cute expression on his face. He is backed on a paper from the Lost and Found pad by My Mind's Eye.

Back soon...

I'm just posting to let people know that I will be gone for a while. I will be in Ireland from Sunday 7th to Sunday 14th, and I will have no internet where I am staying. I do however have two posts scheduled for while I am away.

That is me the last time I was in Ireland walking up the path which leads to my Uncle's house.
