Patterned Paper

 My card today is stamped with a very old Penny Black wooden stamp. It’s called Good Friends, and we all need those. I’ve coloured the image with Promarkers. I’ve used two different backing patterned paper and matched some pre cut flowers with gems in the centre.

Add a Sentiment

 Over at Passion for Markers the theme is ‘Add a Sentiment’. 

For my card I’ve used a stamp from Art Impressions called ‘In the Tub’. I have coloured the image with Promarker pens, added a suitable sentiment, some gems and an embellishment. Backing paper is from my stash.

Bye for now.


Stencils & Stamping

Over at Stamping Sensation the theme is stencils and stamping.

For my card I used two stencils. The green stencil background is from Lavinia stamps and the orange flower background stencil was gifted to me without any makers mark. The little girl stamp is from Wildrose Studio and called Mia with Teddy. I’ve coloured the image with Promarkers, added a sentiment and layered up some pre cut paper flowers.

That’s all for now.

 Over at the House-Mouse & Friends challenge the theme is Here Comes Summer. Finally in the UK we have had some sunshine although the wind has a slight chill to it still. 

My image is from Summer Drinks JSHM013. I’ve smooshed some ink for the sky and sand but then used pencils to colour the image. I’ve added the sentiment from the same set and turned it into a sunshine. I’ve also added a few matching pearls, a little starfish and Stickles Star Dust glitter for some drink bubbles.

That’s it for now.



 Yep, 2nd posting in one day, but when I’ve got the time, I have to cram it in.

Over at Country View Challenge for May the theme is ‘Vehicles’ http://countryviewchallenges.blogspot.com/2023/05/may-2023-vehicles.html

I for one do not make enough men cards so this was a good chance to get one completed. I stamped the image onto thick card stock and coloured it with Promarkers. Added a suitable sentiment and added a flag embellishment.

Not sure, but I could be back for another posting……who knows.


May The Force Be With You

 I’m a massive Star Wars fan, right from the very beginning and my daughter was born on May the 4th (many moons ago). Little did I know then it would become ‘a thing’, that special day Star Wars day and of course my daughters birthday.

Over at Dragonfly Dreams Challenge the theme is May The Force Be With You

Not one to miss the opportunity, I got out my digital images to create a card. I used ink pads and sponges to create a moon scape and the Death Star was painted with water colours. The images were printed on thick card stock, coloured, fussy cut and applied to the card.

Bye for now.

Christmas Sheep

 Another Christmas card! I think this image maybe from Bugaboo from many moons ago but I can’t be sure. I memory is what it used to be :)

I’ve coloured this image with Promarkers, added glossy accents to the eyes, red Stickles to the Christmas tree, a sentiment and a gold star.

For my card I used Brusho’s to colour the image, a stencil around the edge of the card, and a few die cut wild flowers added.

Christmas Sleigh

 It’s great to be back blogging. I especially like the Christmas challenges. Having an extra early start on Christmas cards is a great advantage and being given a theme keeps me focused.

For my card I used an old wooden stamp from Whipper Snapper called Santa, Horse and Pup. I coloured the image with Brusho’s.
