All Of A Twitter



Here is my second card today.

I stamped this cute owl upside down and coloured it with promarkers.  This stamp was a freebie and stamps very well.  The little butterfly is a Debbi Moore stamp, also a freebie, while the sentiment is from Woodware.  A bit of ribbon finishes it off.

Scrap Card


The title of this card came about because everything used is from scraps or packaging.  I do like to see what I can make with "rubbish".

You might recognize the green card as the packaging the free die came from.  The bottom piece has the die printed on it whereas the top piece has the die cut out of scrap card on it.  I have embellished the top one with a few pearls.  The ric rac ribbon was an odd offcut lying around.  The stamps used are from Papermania and Hobby Art.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -

Whimsy Stamps (90) - With Love
A Gem Of A Challenge (161) - Pink

You Make Me Smile...



Wow!  Two cards in two days!  Please excuse wonky photo as I have had to go back to using a camera until I can get a new printer.

Today I have used a stamped image from Penny Black and added a touch of colour with pencils.  I have used a freebie embossing folder for the background which I fussy cut and mixed with paper from Pink Petticoat which is no longer available.  The stamped greeting is from Hero Arts and the ribbon bow from my stash.

I am keeping my designs nice and simple until I've got back into the swing of it all.  I must say though I enjoyed making this card.

Sneakin' Back In...

Hi there!  I can't believe that it is just over 2 years since I last posted anything....  It would have been sooner if Mr Mojo had not up and left the universe. 
 
You might notice a few changes to my sidebar as a lot of things have happened within the family etc.  The most important of course is that now I am a fully fledged grandmother to Billy and step-grandmother to Megan and Maryam.  There is even another on its way!  How lucky am I?
 
Anyway, onto my card....
 
As you can see it is for Billy's 2nd birthday on the 3rd March.  I used a new die from Presscut to cut the actual card out (talk about lazy).  The stamp was from Sugar Nellie but is no longer available and I coloured it with my promarkers.  The papers are from a "Me To You" pad.  All the buttons, pearls, stickers and greeting was from my stash.
 


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

The Sugar Bowl 132 - Anything Goes
Beccy's Place Jan - Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy - New To You (Die)
That Craft Place - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy - Tic Tac Toe (Pearl/Button/Diecut)
Cute Card Thursday 409 - Just Boys

Ok, let's hope I can remember how to do this.....

Time for a new challenge at Whoopsi Daisy and this week the theme is 'Ribbon And Bows'.

My sweet image is coloured with promarkers and I have added glitter.  Isn't she gorgeous?  I think she would look good on a Christmas card too, what do you think?
I covered my base card with silver mirri card and added some embossed panels that I inked with distress ink.  I then added two layers of ribbon up the centre (you can just about see them), and then added a bow.  Next I added some handmade ribbon flowers and punched leaves.  A few pearl gems finish the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
