Snow Friends

Good morning crafty friends.

It's a really nice day today and tonight Brandon is in his Shakespeare play.  He's not much into being up on stage but I'm sure he will have fun all the same.

Yesterday evening we went to Brandon's Senior School for an introduction meet up and to pick up his School tie.  I can't believe this is happening so fast.  I feel like he was only in Junior School yesterday!

At long last I can now enter another number on my Christmas card counter with this card...


Aern't these two just adorable.  They are from Pink Gem Designs and are called Snow Friends.  I have used a sketch from Sketch Saturday to create this card and coloured them in with ProMarkers.

Emergency Services

Good morning crafty friends.

Apologies for MIA.  Brandon is leaving Primary School this month and going to Seniors in September so visits and events at the two Schools have left me little time for crafting or visiting blogs so I do apologise.

I have a card to share and this one was a commission for a lady who wanted a congratulations card for a friend who had past his test in the ambulance service....



This image was a freebie I found on the internet and I have coloured it in with Promarkers.  Did take me ages to find a suitable image lol.

A Little Princess

Good afternoon crafty friends.  We have drizzly weather today so I am spending the day indoors catching up with boring chores (and blogging too lol).

Here is a card....


A little different for me, and inspired by a sketch over at Passion for ProMarkers.  The image is from Digi Stamp Boutiqe and is called Freya Cupcake.  I have coloured her in with ProMarkers.  The papers are Galleria from the Ribbon Girl and the twine and crown charm I have had in my stash forever.

Spring Flowers

Good sunny morning crafty friends.  I really hope you have nice weather like we have here in Buxton today.  It's gorgeous.

I fell down the stairs 2 nights ago and I can't believe I'm still walking around.  I went from top to bottom.  Luckily it didn't seem to damage my already sore back but I am covered in the worse bruising ever!  Really need to be more careful in future.

I have a card to share.....


This pretty image is from the Digi Stamp Boutique and I have coloured it in with ProMarkers.  My flowers and ribbon are from the Ribbon Girl.  The sentiment is computer generated and the papers are Dovecraft Back to Basics.
