Summer's Here

Okay that maybe a slight exaggeration but I'm warmer than I've been for a few weeks and with the delivery of the Bonbon Belles CD Rom its brightened my last few days up. Here are a couple of cards I've made using the afore mentioned disc.

You can't have a beach scene without beach huts can you? I printed out all the elements from the cd to create this DL easel card and added a couple of starfish I had in my crafty stash. I would like to enter this card into Celebrate Summer over at Jellypark

There is such variety of both coloured and bw digis as well as papers, cutting files & sentiments. Real value for money!

My First DT Piece 'Summer Birthday'

Well here it is! My first DT piece for Polkadoodles. The challenge this week is 'Summer Birthday' and the thought going through my head was a lovely long cycle ride in the country. Everything I used on my creation came from the fabulous Cherry blossom Lane

Happy Fathers Day

La Pashe Wrinklies never fail to make me laugh. I normally have a smile on my face from deciding what image to use right until my project is completed. This was no exception lol. when I saw this image I knew exactly 'who' I could use it for!

Happy Fathers Day Dad!

I hope you like your card!

I started off with an 8x8" white, card blank on to which I matted and layered some stripey blue paper onto some grey card and wrapped some blue ribbon around it. I did a print and cut of the 'Grandad Style' digi stamp on my silhouette cameo and also cut a mat slightly bigger in the grey card which I then embossed. I coloured the 'old boy' in with my alcohol markers and inked the edges and added a few gemstones as disco lights. To finish off I cut out the word dad on my silhouette cameo in the grey card and went around the edges with faux stitching added a few foam pads and stuck them too the card.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope all you dads out there are enjoying your day.

I'd like to enter this in card in the following challenge Jelly Park Challenge Masculine

Design Team News

Recently I sent this card as part of an application to be part of the Graph'it design team. The characters name is Billie and she is a digi on the Fredericka cd by Polkadoodles. Currently I only own a few Gi pens so its only her skin and tshirt that is coloured with those, the rest of the image is coloured with pro markers. The backing papers came from a Polkadoodles Paper Pick Pack (try saying that with a mouthful of marbles!) I added a couple of spellbinder borders and coloured my ribbon to match my design. I finished it off with 'Birthday Diva' lettering using Tattered Lace Retro Alphabet die and a few gemstones.

Well unfortunately my application for the Graph'it  DT wasn't successful however there was good news as Nikky Hall of Polkadoodles fame asked me to join her design team! How cool is that?

I need to blog more so thought I'd start by sharing this post with you all. Thanks for stopping by.
