Another male card!

As you may remember i was asked to make a few cards for a friend, she has given me a list of all her upcoming birthdays :-)

Well this was next on the list.  A boys birthday card.
I really struggle with boy cards, so this one took me forever!
The image is from Stamp Fairy and is coloured with promarkers, the balloons have glossy accents on them,
The papers were in my stash, i think the green one is from Dovecraft Back to Basics, i'm not too sure on the other 2!
The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and that's it!

Thanks for looking x

Clean, simple and effective!

They are readymade toppers i have had in my stash for ages!

Thanks for looking

I have had this image for ages and not used it, so when i was asked to make a baby card i knew this would be the ideal image! It is called Bambino from Sugar Nellie.
The lady had asked for a sepia card, the image is coloured in sepia colours but when it came to doing the entire card in sepia i just felt totally out of my comfort zone! So after some toing and froing with the lady we agreed on this one.
The papers are Cart US baby range, the card is Kraft.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Dottie 4 Crafts. The leaves are punched from a Martha Stewart punch.
The poem is one i found on the internet.

I was quite pleased with this card and think my mojo is well and truly back! Next order is for some male cards so lets see if Mr mojo wants to stick around!

I'm Baaaack!

Hi everyone, 

Long time since i last blogged. So where have i been?
Well i stopped making cards for about a year and went onto Jewellery making, but then about 3 weeks ago someone asked me to make her some cards, so i thought OK i will give it a go and see how i feel.  I think i might have my mojo back! (touch wood)

I won't be making them religiously or putting myself under pressure to do them but i will do some for fun and a couple of orders i have.
Entries into challenges are below

Well anyway here are what i made:

First up is an Easter card, made using this Wee Stamps cutie, coloured with promarkers.
The paper is from Forever Friends Spring collection.

Next is a Mother's day card which here in the UK is on Sunday 10th March.
I used one of my favourite companies, Teddy Bo, I'm not too happy with my colouring but it is done using Promarkers.
The papers are Me To You and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Another Easter card here using this sweet image from Grandma Pearls blog ages ago.  Coloured with promarkers .
I'm not sure where the papers are from.

Clean and simple for the next one using this freebie from Stamp Fairy, coloured with promarkers.

And last but not least is this cutie from Di's Digis. Coloured with promarkers.  The paper is Forever Friends (i think) and Boofle (i think)

Well i hope you like my newest cards and it would be great to have some feedback.
