Sweet Sarah Kay... and summers nearly here!

Hello! The weather has been fantastic recently and i only have 2 more weeks of school left until the holidays!!!! ;) I can't believe it's been a whole year since i started High School!

Todays card features a pretty Sarah Kay with my new Paper Mania "Sumer Bloom" Pad. I've coloured this cutie and her little dog with promarkers. I made up a simple sketch and tada!! The card is done. I'm hoping to sell a few cards in my friends sweet shop soon and i was wondering what prices i should charge...any ideas??

  1. Quixotic Challenges- Pretty Pearls
  2. ABC- You and Me, i thought the girl and her dog were quite fitting!

The gorgeous cherry blossom blooms, small pink roses, pearl pins, papers, image, card and medium to colour are all avalible from Lyndseys fabulous shop in Ashmore Park, Wolverhampton- LORA CRAFTS. I made the little leave smyself from some green paper and a bit of ink and i'm quite pleased with how they turned out!

Well that's all from me for now i'm off to the cinema to see Eclipse- the third in the Twilight Saga... i can't wait!! :)

Crafty Calender Challenge! July! ;)

Hello, well it's the frist friday of the month so time for another Crafty Calender Challenge! This month we have the theme of summer with the added option of yellow as the upcoming summer holidays are not far away, and the weather seemed to be brightening up... before yesterday :( For my card i have used 2 stamps that the lovely Christine sent me... xxx thankyou.

They're both WOJ and i used a new technique- masking! It was a lot easier than i thought but the first time i got them the wrong way round and the stool ended up on top of the girl... ;)

I used some beautiful Basic Grey papers from the Sugar Rush collection, and lot's of beautiful little pearls i bought of Ebay! And the little flat flowers aswell as the gorgeous rose are from Wild Orchid Crafts. A few butterflies to finish it off and it's done!
Thanks for dropping by, don't forget to check out my fellow DT's creations and enter this month challenge! :)

Stampavie- I'm Back x

Hello everyone! Gosh i can't believ how long it's been scince my last post! :( Sorry but i've been really busy at the moment. As some of you know i also play golf and at the moment i need to train really hard to achieve the goals i'm aiming for. This summer is going to be a big year for me!

I made this card as an order, but i also wanted to try out me new stamp i bought from Lyndsey at Lora Crafts. She's by Stampavie... isn't she cute? I used the out-of-the-box technique, (thanks Christine!) and coloured her with copics and promarkers. The goregous papers are of course by Basic Grey! I think my card fits into a few challenges too, Totally Gorgjuss: Sugar and Spice, and Simon Says Challenge; You gotta have friends!

Thanks for visiting me today, i appreciate your feedback x

Pretty Pink Anya x

I've been having a play with some of my craft stash that's been pushed to one side.... i've been so into my Magnolia i've forgotten about my gorgeous Anya's!!! I'm in a K+Co mood too- i've used my Madeline pad again as i adore the soft colours!
Of course no card is complete without some roses, pins and pearls!! Anya has been coloured with promarkers. ( which i am slowly getting better at colouring with... i just need more! ) All the edges have been inked with pink chalk for a softer edge too, and i added a strip of gorgeous organzer ribbon.

I've got a few challenges to enter as usual too:

  1. Anyone For Anya? HOT HOT HOT
  2. A Spoon Full Of Sugar: Floral Delight

Thankyou so much for popping along and taking a look at my cards, please leave a comment if you have the time... all feedback is appreciated x
