Another one from me today. I'm on a roll!!

One of my new stamps from Lili of the Valley - did I mention that I love them??? I have coloured him with ProMarkers and a little bit of KindyGlitz on the headlights.

Good morning everyone!! Sorry I haven't done any posts recently - I have just closed down my hairdressing business.  I was having major issues with the owner/agent and very undesirable people living above my shop and the shops next door. I just had to get out. I am now looking for a job but am going to go back to office work which is what I did before hairdressing. Fingers crossed that I get something soon!!

Anyway, I have done a couple of cards. The first one is made with one of the squares from Lili of the Valley (oh, I love that company!!!). No colouring in for this one - just a bit of embossing and stuck together and there we go! Easy peasy, lemon squeezie!!

Whoo's Birthday?

Hi. This is my third post for today. This is another card for a customer. It is for her friend back in the UK who loves owls.

I haven't got the tags from the stamps so I don't know who they are made by - sorry. I coloured with ProMarkers. The DP is from a local store in a sale (I do love my crafty bargains!!) for 29c.

I also made this cute little bookmark for one of the Representative netball players that I umpire for.

Madison's Card

This is my second post for today. This card was made for one of my customers. It is for her niece, Madison, who turns 10 next week.

The stamp and sentiment are both by LOTV coloured with ProMarkers. The papers are from the same pad as the first post.

Teddy Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone. This is the first of three posts for me today (I have been busy!!!). They are all cards I have been asked to make for my customers.

The stamp is by LOTV. This was my first attempt at an "out of the box" die cut (thanks to the Quick Flick Video by Bev Rochester - Bev is awesome!!!). I love how it turned out. I coloured him in with my ProMarkers. 

The papers from a stash I got from Spotlight the other day. They very kindly sent me a $10 gift voucher for my birthday (which is next Friday!!!) and I managed to get a 12" x 12" pad of 148 sheets of pastel basics down from $20 to $14 to $10 so it didn't cost me anything!!! Don't you love a bargain??

Deckchair Dreaming

I hope you all had a great Easter. We had a really busy weekend. I enjoyed the time off and spending time with my hubby. He does get neglected while the netball season is on!!

Lost my mojo a little bit over the last couple of weeks but did manage to make this card. Wasn't too happy with it when I first did it, but it is growing on me! Hope you like it!

The image stamp is Deckchair Dreaming by LOTV. The sentiment is from TLC. I used my Big Shot for the background and the DP is from my stash. I coloured the image with my ProMarkers.

Birthday Bunny!

Hello everyone.

I've been a bit sick this last week with a vertigo/inner ear thingymajigy!  Better now though!

Have made a couple of cards this week.  Been looking on Pinterest a fair bit and found some inspiration on there. If you haven't joined the Pinterest world yet, what are you waiting for???

Well anyway, this is the first one.  I have a new Big Shot machine and I LOVE IT!!!

My stamp is by LOTV and the embossing is done with the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder.  Coloured with my ProMarkers of course!  The rest of the stuff was from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp : Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays : PTT#61 Anything Goes
Passion For ProMarkers : Ribbons & Buttons

This is the second one, inspired by Pinterest.

Used my Big Shot again and also my new border punch. The flowers, button and twine are from my stash.

And the last one was also inspired by Pinterest. A friend gave me a few doilies. They are smaller than the picture I saw on Pinterest so I just made my card a bit smaller. I stamped and cut out a butterfly. It looked a bit blank with nothing on it, so I stamped a few more. A couple went a bit wonky but I am fairly happy with the end result.
