Need to be a bit quicker....

Entering the challenges as I keep missing the deadlines. The new challenge over at Lili of the Valley is for a summer themed card, here is my entry. Another outing for my fav Sarah Kay stamp and some lovely bright colours. I was very pleased with it as I made it late at night and my lighting is not good so was not sure all the colours went together!

I coloured the stamp with promarkers and finished it off with some Prima Pearls.

As I was saying I need to be a bit quicker posting as I also made this card.

For the last challenge, the stamp is one I bought from Lili of the Valley at Alexandra Palace, isn't she gorgeous! I used some Kate Knight papers I received free with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. Love these berry bright colours. I teamed them with black to make a bit of an impact The flowers were made with a Marianne Designs stencil, they emboss as well though you can't see that very well in the picture.

I Have Been Busy

Finally had time to play with some bits I bought at Ally Pally a few weeks ago. I had been itching to spend a bit of time card making but as usual real life (kids, housework, work, DH) kept getting in the way!
I used my new Distress inks to colour in this image from Magnolia and have entered it in their challenge, they are lovely to use and I love the effect they give.
I followed the sketch by Bev Rochester for the challenge.
I also made a matching gift bag (bag was 20P from my local cake supplies shop - what a bargain).

The papers are from the very gorgeous Rose Garden range from Papermania, you get tags and die cuts with it as well.

I have also managed to make a challenge card for Lilli of the Valley, will be back to upload this later.

Long Time No See

Apologies for the long break in posts, have had such a busy few months with Demos for Docrafts taking up time and family commitments.

Here is a card I am entering for the Promarker Challenge, my little man looks as though he has a bit of sunburn but he has been out fishing all day. It's not the best photo but I added so 3d gloss to his bucket and the fish which adds a nice accent.

I will get my camera out again and take some photo's of the cards I made for the last lot of Demo's as I had many requests to get them on my blog.

Back soon
