Poinsettia Sparkle

Hi Everyone,
I'm finally here again, I can't believe we are nearly round to another weekend again !
I do have quite a few cards ready to blog it's just finding chance to sit down and actually write the post. One of the reasons I am short on time lately is that we got a new puppy a couple of months ago and oh my goodness I had forgotten how much work they are Lol

We sadly lost our beloved Jack Russell boy Max at the start of the summer, he collapsed in the garden and died in hubby's arms :( We had previously agreed that when Max was gone (not realising we would lose him yet as he was only 12) there would be no more as we have 3 house cats too but a few days later hubby comes home and announces he has bought a puppy ! To be totally honest I wasn't happy to start with but once they are there in your home you can't help but fall in love can you ;) He is a cutie, another Jack Russell and his name is Chester ! but as I said in the beginning a lot of work...he still hasn't quite got to grips with tiddling outside all the time yet...I will spend 15 mins outside in the garden with him and he comes back in and immediately pees on the floor grrrr so if anyone has any tips for that one they would be gratefully received !

Anyway enough waffle and onto my card...

I used a Woodware clear stamp set for this card, I stamped with Memento ink and coloured the image with Promarkers. I used diamond Stickles for the berries, they are really sparkly. The sentiment came with the image in the set. This is a 6x6 card so as you can see it is quite a large stamp and really enjoyable to colour. As I am way behind with my Christmas card count this year I made a few more of these matting them onto different colour card so they aren't identical.

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

HLS September Christmas Challenge - Sparkle

That's all for now,

Hydrangea Blooms

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend, I have managed to have a bit of time in my craft room so I will have a few cards to share with you over the next few days. The one I have to show you now is a Thinking of you/Sympathy card using a gorgeous Hydrangea image from DigiStamp Boutique. I printed the image quite large to fill the card...the sentiment comes with the image along with a few others.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, and added it to a slightly larger square of blue card. Finished it off with a couple of matching blue butterflies which were cut with a free gift die set from a recent magazine.

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

Butterfly Challenge #84
Aud Sentiments Challenge #187

Bye for now
Hugs, Kaz xxx
