Darling Buds


Today's card features three of the Darling Buds images from polka doodles. 
I've had these images for a while but haven't used them all that much, so I had an idea to use three of them on one.
I like using multiple images in my cards as I think it showcases them nicely.
I coloured them with spectrum noirs and Promarkers and die cut into circles.
I matched them with nitwit collections hydrangea range papers and green card.
I finished with a sentiment and pearls.

Hedgehogs in pots


I'm back again. I seem to have had so many cards to share this week!
This card I made a couple of weeks ago, one of my step cards. I used an hedgehog image from Di's digi downloads, coloured with spectrum noirs.
I used papers that I got free in a magazine, matted on lilac. 
I kept it simple, adding flowers and a sentiment.


CWTC: Blue and White


We have a new challenge over at Christmas with the cuties and this months theme is blue and white.
For my card I used one of our sponsors images, not the one I was originally using as my old desktop was being picky about downloads.
I embossed a folder in white and matted on blue and added ribbon and a sentiment. I coloured my image with spectrum noirs and fussy cut.

The Paper Shelter: Going digital


The challenge over at The Paper Shelter this week is going digital, so we would like to see digital elements on your makes.
Whenever we have this theme I always choose to use one of the toppers and backing paper from an image. 
This time I have used the image Lady with wings.
I matted both the paper and image on black card and added golden ribbon and some orange enamel dots.

We look forward to seeing your creations!

Seaside Fun


I hope everyone has been enjoying the nice weather. I've been in the garden with the blow up pool playing with my dog, he certainly enjoyed it!
I have this summer themed card to share which features a range of the summer seaside Tilda images from magnolia.
I made a similar card with Easter stamps earlier on in the year.
I coloured them all with Promarkers and spectrum noirs and created a double step card.
Instead of a scene I printed a summery verse and embellished with flowers and a doily.
The papers came from the seaside themed range from Nitwit collections.


Dinosaur Dude

This is one of the last little dudes I made a few weeks ago. I seemed to create a batch of dude cards so I'm taking a break from them now. I coloured this dinosaur image with Promarkers, making a whole scene.
I used papers from my 12x12 let's play paper pad, double matted. I finished with one of the sentiments.

Parents Cards

The title of this post may be a little confusing but let me explain. Last week I had a couple of occasions, fathers day , my dogs second birthday and my mum's birthday.
The two cards here are what I made for them.

My first card is my mum's birthday card. Her favourite cards are measles so I made this one using a cute whimsy penguin image, coloured with spectrum noirs and Promarkers. I thought this one went perfectly.
I used Nitwit collections Cherish papers, matted on white. I die cut the border along the top, printed a sentiment and verse and added flowers, ribbon, lace and pearls.


This card I made for my dad on fathers day. It features images and papers from polka doodles Horace and Boo range. It's a stepper card and I matted the paper on black. I printed a sentiment ans added buttons to finish.


Koala-ty Friend


I have a card to share today that features an image from a stamp set I got from Creative stamping magazine while on holiday last month. 
It's not very often I use magazine freebies, but I loved the wild animal set that was featured in that issue. 
Koalas are one of my favourite animals and I'd love too see them but unfortunately, I don't go overseas.
I coloured this sweet koala with Promarkers and die cut into a circle.
I used first edition Moroccan papers, matted on black.
I also used the sentiment that came from the stamp set. I finished by adding some ribbon.

Wedding Couple

I have made a wedding card using my favourite fold of the moment.
I decided to use the Mr and Mrs magnolia image from the Your invited range, from Swedish house crafts.
I die cut my image and coloured with Promarkers.
I matched it with crafts and me my wedding papers, matted on white. I added lace, pearl trim, flowers, die cut swirls and a sentiment.

Come back soon for another wedding card with a hidden surprise!


Little dudes: Tech dude

At the moment, this is my favourite fold of card. I'm not sure what it is called, but its my favourite!
For this card, I used one of the polka doodles little dudes, coloured with spectrum noirs.
I used papers from my 12x12 let's play paper pad, perfect for kids, and double matted on green and white.
I die cut stars and added those as embellishments and included one of the little dude sentiments.

I'd like to enter this into:
I think this is one of my favourites because compared to my usual fussy and fancy style, I can make this quite simple and only use two papers rather than four or five. Plus I think it highlights the image nicely.
