Swinging Deana

This is one of the images donated by Just Inklined for the Help for Katie cause.

To make it look like Deana was actually swinging I made a tent card using a rectangle nestie and some backing paper from the Woodland Fold paper pack. I used Promarkers to colour her in but once again can't remember which colours I used!!

Hope you've all had a good weekend xx

Bertha Bedtime

What a sight!!! No wonder she sleeps in a single bed on her own, could you imagine waking up to this every morning!! lol

Brilliant Bertha Bedtime from Just Inklined and available here from La Pashe.
I used some co-ordinating card stock and the backing paper is from an old Hot off the Press book I found the other day. Can't remember the colour of the Promarkers I used, although I do know Duck Egg and Cool Aqua were in there somewhere!! lol

Hope you're all having a good weekend whatever you're doing xx

Rose Build a Blossom

Another beautiful flower from the Build a Blossom range by La Pashe.

Made a lattice card similar to the one I made here, and the inspiration came from this fabulous blog of Valita's here. I just know that once you've logged on her blog, you'll be there for hours just marvelling at the gorgeous creations she makes. Thanks Valita xx

Have a nice evening whatever you're doing xx

Build a Blossom Iris

La Pashe have just released another set from the gorgeous "Build a Blossom" range. This is the Iris and rather than make a card, I went with a box.

It was only after I'd taken the photo and sent the box off that I realised the pearl had disappeared from the bottom right hand corner!! Oh well, perhaps no-one will notice, although now I've told the world, there's not much chance of that!! lol

Have a nice day whatever you're doing xx

Ted and Agnes

Meet Ted and Agnes, the loved up newlyweds from Just Inklined.
Just the ticket for an older couple that are getting married, or even for a young couple with a sense of humour!!

Ted and Agnes were coloured with Promarkers and are available from La Pashe for an amazing £1!!!
The gorgeous grey floral backing paper is one of Jak's own (I think!!) and I couldn't find a suitable shade of pink in my cardstock so I made my own using Greeting Card Factory.

Hope you all had a good weekend and see you soon xx

Flowers for Mags

I was asked to make a card by a gentleman for his partner of 10 years but he couldn't find anything suitable in the shops. The only instructions I got were "She likes purple flowers and I call her sweetheart"!!

Fred's Flowers to the rescue. I love these flowers so much, and I'm sure Mags will love them as well.

Hope you're all having a good weekend whatever you're doing xx

Red Roses

These beautiful red roses and matching backing paper are from Joanna Sheen's "The Cardmaker's Year", just one of the many, many CD's I have and never use.

This is a large 8" x 8" card and it made a lovely change from all the wedding stationery I've been doing.
See you soon xx

Just Inklined Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's blog hop from Just Inklined
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, the theme is "LOVE" and was chosen by Cathy.

For my card I chose Audrey and Aubery who may not be your typical love birds, but they look very happy together!! They were coloured with Promarkers. the heart border is a Martha Stewart punch, and the gorgeous heart backing paper is courtesy of our very own Jak. The sentiment was computer generated and I hope you get the intended pun!! Audrey and Aubery can be purchased here.

If you're on the right track you should have arrived here from Toni and from here you should pop over to see Jeni and see what fantastic creation she's come up with. We also have Meesh with us this month as Guest Designer. Lovely to have you with us Meesh.

Enjoy the hop and in case you get lost, here's the list in the correct order:

Wishing You Well

This is for someone who is not feeling too good at the moment, but rather than send a typical "Get Well" card, I thought I'd do something different. This wishing well from Just Inklined was just what I was after, and the sentiment says it all. The image can be purchased here.

I used my new Woodgrain embossing folder and the backing paper is from the Woodland Folk A4 paper pack. I used my Promarkers to colour it in, and the colours used are: Warm Grey 1, Tan, Satin, Walnut, Cinnamon, Sandstone, Pear Green and Lime Zest.

See you soon xx
