Flag bear

Hi Everyone, another quick post from me. I hope to be back in a little while to full time blogging? Apologies again for lack of commenting.

I just had to make this wonderful bear into a card. He looked like he was holding something, so, after colouring him with Distress Inks, I slit open just enough of his paw to hold the flag pole, which had been paper pieced and printed from Photoshop with the Welsh flag on it. I hope he gives you a smile. I just noticed it looks like I added the topper at a slant? It certainly didn't look like that when I made it! Perhaps my eyes need checking?

The bear is a progressive freebie from Limited Runs Digital Stamps for just a dollar you can join in.

All that Jazz

Hi everyone, I can't believe it's more than two weeks since I was here last. I've also been remiss with comments, so sorry. I won't be able to catch up, I hope you'll forgive me. We have had a few issues, so crafting has been the last thing on my mind. BUT, my commitment to The Male Room meant I had to get something done, so here is my DT card for

I couldn't think of anything, although this is the easiest challenge to do, my files are the first to go to, to find if I have anything. I found this perfect card, especially for a GodDaughter son's birthday, who loves his music. Shame you can't see the sparkle on the music and letters, it's lovely. I added a couple more notes, (an accident required them!) The saxophone is 3D with the centre of it flat. I also decided to add a  music embossing background to the card instead of leaving it in its shape.

Flowers and black lines

Hi Everyone, my card today is me playing with a big stamp and just using half of it, I coloured it and die cut it, but was lost for a background, then I saw a card by Sarah Warren on the Outlawz. I don't have a link I'm sorry, but the background of black card seemed just what was needed for my card, so thank you Sarah, sorry I can't link you. Maybe you can see it here. I went into my Silhouette and made the background and decided to foil inside the lines, using the WRMK foiling pen.

Autumn sweater

Hi Everyone my second post today a little later than intended is my DT card for

I don't know what went wrong with me, but I forgot all about today's post, so a VERY quick second card today was done and I even know who it is going to, someone who is always cold LOL. As of today, here, jumpers are needed with temperatures down and a strong wind, so thought the stamps relevant.

Hi Everyone, my card today is for the Outlawz challenge which asks as it's theme hobbies. Of course it's easy - until I started to make the card and thought of the other things I like to do, so I included them on the card, well some of them!
Digital / hybrid card making, colouring, stamping, die cutting. Too little! so if I have time  I'll make another at least. The beautiful papers by "We are 3" I won in an Outlawz challenge the other week.

Morgans DT

Hi Everyone my DT post today is for 
the image I have used today can be bought

she is named as Ivy Greenleaf

which made me go searching for Ivy in my files, yep! got a few, but not that would be suitable, or so I thought, so off to the Silhouette Design Store and found a background that I thought would work. The image is actually on Morgans header, so it meant a lot to live up to. I have recently bought, (I am late to the party) some Ranger Distress Inks, I know you are all onto the oxide ones now! LOL. Anyway, I decided to use one pack of 4 and base my colours on those for my card.

I'm not sure it worked and I may not have done my best for this image and card. I think I will have to revisit it at some time. The image although it looks so detailed and it would be difficult to colour, was surprisingly easy.
