The Workbench

Hi Everyone,

I have another male card to share today, I seem to have been making mainly male cards recently.
This one is using an LOTV digi 'The Workbench' which I coloured with Promarkers.

I used magazine freebie papers matted onto buff card and the sentiment is from a DSB set.
I used a simple layout which I think works well for male cards especially,

Bye for now,

Just a Note


I have a little notecard to share today that I made with the latest Butterfly Challenge in mind where the theme is V for Vertical and/or D for Damson.
I used a Clearly Besotted set - Butterfly Additions and VersaColor ink cubes to stamp the butterflies, I have got the matching dies for the set but as my Ebosser has gone to die cutter heaven ;) and I'm waiting for a replacement I fussy cut them instead.

I added a couple of clear gems to the 3D butterflies and the sentiment is from a freebies sentiment set. The panel was adhered to a little A6 card blank. I'm planning on making a couple of sets of these in different colours to give as stocking fillers.

Bye for now

Girl with Trike

Hi Everyone,

I realised I hadn't shared the card I made for our gorgeous granddaughter Freya's recent birthday, I can't believe she is 4 already and will be starting school next year...where has the time gone ?! With my daughter being a single parent she relies on us for childcare so that she can work which means that we get to spend loads of time with Freya and she is the apple of our eye...she makes us laugh constantly with her antics even when she is being a little monster ;)

When I saw this Elisabeth Bell stamp (unfortunately the package doesn't have a name on it) I knew I had to get it for her card as we bought her a traditional trike last year which she absolutely loves

I used Birthday Script card from Anna Marie designs, the 4 is from a Stampin Up die and for the flowers I used a Tonic punch. The sentiment is from the Simply Teddy Birthdays set from DSB and I just ran around the edge with a pink marker.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
In the Pink Challenge #126 - Ribbons & Bows
The Cutie Pie Challenge #116 - Think Pink 

And before I go I thought I would share a photo of the little monkey herself :)

Bye for now,

Alf's Back !

Hi Everyone,

Alf is back from his little break ;) so I have another couple of cards to share with you

This is 'Dad's Shed - Alf' I coloured him with Promarkers and matted onto brown card, the paper is from The Works and so is the wooden lettering.

This is 'Sports Car Alf' again coloured with Promarkers, matted onto black card. The sentiment is also from DSB from the 'Large Family Sentiments' set.

I'm off to spend the morning in my craft room now before our grandaughter comes at lunchtime, she is spending the night with us tonight as her mum is having a night out :)

Thats all for now,

Sketchy Snowman

Hi Everyone,

I'm back with a couple of Christmas cards both made using 'Sketchy Snowman' from Digistamp Boutique.

On this one I left it CAS by printing it to fit the whole front of the card, the sentiment comes with the image. I love the font. He is coloured with Promarkers and I have added Stickles to their hats and the snow.

For this version I used papers from a Dovecraft paper stack 'Merry and Bright' which I bought at least 2 yrs ago for my Christmas cards and then never even opened it. I coloured the image to match and matted onto bright blue and pink card from Papermill. Added stickles as on the previous card and some Clearly Besotted snowflakes with some pink gems from my stash.
I'm pleased with both versions of this card, I can't decide which I prefer but I think probably the CAS one.

Thats all for now,

Hugs, Kaz xxx

Tennis Ralph

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well, I am getting to spend lots of time crafting lately so it's all good :)

While Alf is off on his little break hehe his cousin Ralph has come to visit ;)

The card I'm sharing today uses 'Tennis Ralph' from Digistamp Boutique

I found a little piece of cloud paper in my snippets box which I thought would be ideal to go with this image, I have coloured him with Promarkers. The scrim mesh is from my stash and the sentiment comes with the fab image.

That's all for now, I will be back later with a couple of  Xmas cards

Hugs, Kaz xxx
