Sailor Boy!

Hi There,

15th of the month means reminder time for the current challenge over at Besties International . The theme is still Nautical or anything goes. Here is my card.

I make cards to sell so I'm always looking for images that can be used to create simple cards for children with cute boys and girls on. Where best to look for them than Here in the Bestie Shop. This little guy is Sailor Boy there is a little girl too.
I've coloured him in with my Promarker pens. I've used alsorts of papers on this card as I can't throw anything out. The little metal tag I have had since I started crafting back in the early 1990's (I knew it would find a use one day lol).
Thanks for stopping by again today, I hope you have added your card if not still time to do so.
I'm joining in over at Noordesign-uk. August-challenge-anything-goes. with this card.

Nana's Darling!


Just wanted to share a card I made for a friend to give her Granddaughter

This is a first on two levels. The first is the fact that this card has no back and sits on this stand which I made for it. The second is this is the first time I have used an image by All Dressed Up Stamps I've only just found them and I adore them. I love the fact that they are so simple but so usable on every level. The image was a freebie given away a short while ago to help people get started and join in with her monthly challenges.

I used papers from a paper pad I picked up in the store so all the hard work has been done on that front. I used a stencil by Dutch Doobadoo Shape-Art-A5-Square. found here at NoorDesign! UK Shop/Crafteezee I have also used several different dies one of which is the scribble heart by Tim Holtz. I've added lace, glitter, ribbon and a metal charm.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:-

Thanks for stopping by, hope you'll leave a word or too.

Pitter Patter.

Here I am with another card to share. This time around it is for a friend who is expecting anyday now the arrival of their baby daughter.
I saw a card by Little Meg's Cards on Pinterest and I loved it using this pretty image and I fell in love with the way she had coloured in the dress so I copied it!

The card is a 6x6 bright white base and on to that I've added pink gingham paper which I have stitched around opposite corners. I added these white corners on top to which I dotted liquid pearls in baby pink and pearl colours.
I matted the silver foiled card on to the same pink the image is matted on to. I had to use the heart banner (it is my favorite) and the Pitter Patter from a Sue Wilson die set was added to a flag banner. A few hearts dotted around and we are done.
The image is by Stamping Bella - Uptown Girls and I have coloured her in with my Promarker pens and added glitter when dry.

I'm joining in with a few challenges,

Salty Kisses xxx

Hello There,

It's time again to share with you a card I have made for the new challenge over at Besties International . This month our challenge is as always anything goes but also we are using the theme Nautical. For this you could use anything found on, in or around the sea or seaside. I made this for my uncles birthday (he lives by the seaside).

Here is what I have made,

It's a 5x7 cream card base and on to that I've added a cream paper which I have first stamped a texture background stamp by Kaisercraft found Here then I brushed over it with Cosmic Shimmer Powder in pearl. I then added papers from Kaisercraft and DCWV all mounted on plane cardstock to match the colours used.
The image is _Img396 found here at My Bestie Shop she is cute don't you think? I've coloured her in with my Promarker pens and cut her using a Spellbinder die adding a small mat to her. A little foliage and a few sea type mini buttons give some balance to the card. To finish off a few drops of Perfect Pearls.

Now it's your turn to join in the fun. Remember the new rules we have to make it more fare for non-Dt's to win the most images for the month.

I'm joining in with other challenges too
