A bit different for me!!

My first ever coloured stamped image!!!! (Jackie I hope you're proud of me lol!) and not my usual style of card at all but quite enjoyed doing it.
I've used colouring pencils from WH Smiths that Samantha bought me for my birthday .. just can't get to grips with watercolouring at all!!
The colouring leaves a lot to be desired but as they say "practice makes perfect" so hopefully in the not too distant future I'll be as good as Jackie and BevR .. yeah right .. and pigs might fly!! lol!
Enjoy your evening xx

Forever Friends

Just a very simple card using a Forever Friends sticker.
I've got loads of them but don't particularly like them just as stickers ... so I stuck it onto plain white card and then cut round him and popped it on the card with foam pads to give it a bit of dimension. I've not put a sentiment on it yet cos not sure who it's going to be sent to and for what occasion.
Have a nice evening xx

And finally ...

the last one I'm showcasing is Flippin' Miss Molly.

Bye for now

And a couple more ....

Here's another couple made up with the Flippin Kids new sheets.
Just added a contrasting backing sheet on each one, coloured the peel offs to match round the oval aperture and stuck a few embellishments on to finish them off.

I'll be back later with the final one. Have a nice evening xx

Columbine Fairy

I love these fairies. This was a freebie from a magazine along with six of her friends. I've only used one of them before so two down four to go!! I've put some stickles on her wings but as per usual the photo doesn't pick it up very well.
Check my blog tomorrow as I will be showing a few cards from the new "Flippin" range.
Have a lovely weekend xx

My Beautiful 50th Birthday Cards

It was my 50th Birthday last Friday and I had a fantastic weekend. I received loads of gifts, flowers, choccies etc. and lots of beautiful cards. Here are some that I received from my friends on the imag-e-nation forum .. all handmade of course and each one as beautiful as the last.
Thanks again everyone xx

From Jackie

From Lynn

From Toni

From Liz C

From Jak

From Louise Emma
and last but not least ... from Samantha (my daughter)
who doesn't do any cardmaking or craft of any description (too boring!!) but I think it's gorgeous and what a lovely surprise it was too.
and finally I'd just like to show you the beautiful Willow Tree figurine I received from Jackie. It's called "Friendship" and it has pride of place on my mantlepiece. Thanks again Jackie .. I love it!!

Have a nice evening everyone and hopefully I'll be back shortly with a card I've made myself!!

Fred's Spots!!

New flowers from Tracey at Fred, She Said. I love spots as you can probably tell by the amount of cards I've made recently with spots on!!!
Not been around much lately ... been busy with various card orders but most of them were duplicates of ones I've already made so no point showing them again!!
Hope you all had a lovely Easter.

The same ... but different!!

Almost identical to my Mum's mothers day card, just changed the picture and the verse inside. This is for my cousin Lynda's 50th birthday in a couple of weeks time. She was born on the same day as me (8 hours older!) and it caused quite a bit of interest in the hospital where we were born cos it's not every day sisters give birth on the same day!!!
Hope you had a nice weekend.
