With Love






Good afternoon all.
We have had a sunny couple of days, lovely just in time for my lad Brandon to be on half term.  We are off to the park in a mo with some friends, but first wanted to show this card.

This is a digi image from La Pashe that was on a CD that came with Complete Cardmaking magazine and I have coloured it in with pro-markers.  I did black hair, because I am practicing this.  I used black and Cool Grey 3.

The backing papers are Basic Grey and Rasberry road and the embellishments are from my stash.

Thank you for looking, I appreciate it :0) Michelle

Cool and Blue Goth Girl






Good afternoon all - a lovely sunny day here and no snow (yeah!!!).

This card was made with a Sugar Nellie Goth Girl stamp and is more or less my first attempt at doing black hair with pro-markers.  It didn't quite turn out the way I imagined it too but the final result suits the image.

The backing paper is a mixture of Basic Grey Picadilly and Papermania British papers.  The roses are from WOC and the sentiment is a Whimsy stamp.  Card and pearls are just from my stash.

I have glittered the rose and around the image too.  I adhered the glue on the flowers and edge of image with blue acrylic paint.  I've never done this before and it was fun.

Thank you so much for looking - I appreciate it and have a great day - :0) Michelle

Butter Wouldn't Melt in Her Mouth

Good morning all.  We have snow!!  My Nephew is staying with us at the moment, all the way from Liverpool, I don't think there is any snow there, just here in Buxton lol.
Yes, butter wouldn't melt in this girls mouth lol.  She is a Di's digi image coloured in pro-markers and the papers are Kay Miller Spring collection.  I got these from a CD Rom that came with the magazine Complete Cardmaking.  Really good value for money and this issue is still on sale.

The sketch I used is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  A great sketch to work with don't you think.  The sentiment is from a rubber stamp from Cuddly Buddly.  The rest of the items are just from my stash.

Apologies, for just one image to look at.  I had done a close up photo (2 actually), but they were horribly blurred and just not worth showing :0(

Have a Hoot on your Birthday


Good morning all.  Well it's my second day not smoking :0)  I have two 7mg patches on again, 'cos I don't have any 14mg patches lol, but some are coming today in my shopping.  Brandon went to the dentist yesterday.  He didn't need anything done but they wanted to put a flouride paste on his teeth to strengthen them, but boy he wasn't letting the Dentist do that easily !
My card for today was created using free Woodware stamps and free papers from a papercrafting magazine.  Such a nice free gift it is too.  I stamped the owl onto different pieces of paper and pieced it all together, really enjoyed it too lol.   I like this card a lot.  The pearls are from my stash.  Thank you so much for looking - appreciate it and have a great day :0) Michelle

Birthday Monkey for Dad


Good afternoon all.  Hope your day has been good.  I've been a bit busy.  Went into town to try and get my fella some trainers for his birthday on Monday but they just didn't have his size in any of the styles I picked.  I don't know what to get him now :0(
Anyhow, this card is for his birthday.  The digi Monkey is a Dustin Pike freebie I found on Pinterest.  I love this monkey and can see me using it loads.  He is coloured in with pro-markers.  The papers are Nitwit (I think.)  I stamped the sentiment with Dovecraft stamps and the buttons are a selection from my stash.  Thanks so much for looking - I appreciate it:0)
