Fall Time

Well it is that time again over at Design Team member Marge has asked us to make a card or project including our colours of Fall.

Here is my card using a 5x7 black card blank

I used a lovely russet apple red for the back ground and then after running a sheet of HOTP paper through my GC I matted that on to black.
The image again is a free one off the PC so thank you for that. I coloured her in using my Promarkers and used a SB die to cut her out and mat her. I used some antique lace at the bottom to tie it all together. The sentiment I printed out too. I have used a fair amount of foam pads to give each layer a lift.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you link up with us this time.

National S'Mores day !

Now I know we don't do this one but over in the US it was National S'mores day on 10th August so design team member Raquel has asked us to come up with a card or project with either chocolate or marshmallows on it.

Please pop over to to see what beauties the other girls have come up with.

This is my take on the challenge....

I made this card for my darling hubby for our anniversary this year. I chose to do a double twisted easel card. The card is 8inch long. I covered the base using damask paper by Kanban Crafts and the toppers are theirs too.

He loves his coffee and a slice of chocolate cake too but he is the cream in my cup lol.

Thanks for looking in today, now make your own card using chocolate or marshmallow and link it up for a chance to win.

Thanks,  Sue

Wedding Card

Well here is a card I have been making all day! This is the third attempt.

I used Kaisercraft papers from the Porcelain Rose Collection, along with some of the collectables and a little bit of ribbon from my stash. I 3d the bird and rose in the bottom left. The corner stamp is from Clarity Stamps and to finish off I added some gems.

I have no idea of the age of the bride and groom so I hope this will be to the givers taste or I will have to set to again tomorrow lol.

Thanks for stopping by

Back to school

Hello again,
This week over at Design Team member Glenda has asked us to make a card or project to do with going back to school.
Now as my DS has just finished school for good I have no one to make one for but he dose love Harry Potter (as we all 3 do) so when I saw this free image on the PC I knew I had to use it. He thinks she looks quite cute!!

Now Glenda wanted us to include a house or bus in our project oops I sure hope she won't mind this time But if you are going to link up your design do try to add one to stand a chance of winning a DT slot.

Well enough waffling here is my card.
The card is a 6x6 and I have used a HOTP paper for the back ground and then cut out a frame using Cricut. The leaf is a birthday gift from my BF this year. As I said I found the image on the PC so can't give credit at this time but thanks. I coloured her in using Promarkers and using a SB die I matted her up. Adding the flower to match her headband.
Here is what I can imagine Ron saying when he sees her arrive lol
 Thanks for looking in, hope to see your craftiness soon
