Charisma Cardz 1 Image, 1 Paper, 1 Embellishment

Morning All,

I hope everyone had a good bank holiday weekend, it was my birthday over the weekend so we had a family BBQ & it was the first time we have had the family over to the house since we've moved it. Thankfully the weather was OK with only a few light showers & everyone said how lovely the house is etc.

Right onto this weeks challenge at Charisma Cardz, this week we have a recipe & it is 1 paper, 1 image & 1 embellishment. My card has been made using one of our fab sponsors for this week Time for Tea's Princess digi. I have coloured her hair with my new Copic Markers that my lovely hubby bought me for my birthday ;-) I have added some glamour dust to her dress & tiara to make it nice & sparkly.

Golf anyone?

Afternoon Everyone,
Just thought I would pop this little fellow onto here as I think he is so cute. I made this card for my Mums friend as she had given me a list of cards that she wanted. I have used Bugaboo Stamps Gus Golf & have coloured him with Pro Markers. I freehand drew the golf club in the corner as I thought it needed a little something in that corner to even up the card.

I would like to enter this card in the Cards for Men - Funny Birthday

Molly again

Well i meant to post this card yesterday but i managed to completely forget, typical me. This is the first non square card i have done so i am rather pleased that it doesn't look completely awful. I have used the brilliant Visible Image Molly Rules set again but this time I've also used some of the extras that come with the set.
I have made the background myself using the technique that Mark from Visible image showed us on there last stint on Create & Craft TV but i can't remember what it's called lol

Molly Rules

Hello Everyone,
I have finally got around to having a play with my Visible Image Molly Rules stamp set that I've had for a while now but just hadn't got around to using. I am so glad i did decided to have a play as I've managed to do 2 completely different cards using the set.
Below is the first one i have done & i have only used the Molly stamp & the Naughty & Nice sentiment. I have coloured her up with my pro markers & i am so pleased with the result, i have been experimenting with hair at the moment so watch this space to see what else i come up with.
The papers are from The Works & i really hope i can get them again as i just love this card so much that i want to make a few more (this one is already Sold)

I will be back later with my second Molly Rules card

My first Tiddly Inks

Happy Friday Everyone,

Wow the weeks seem to be flying by at the moment, soon the schools will be back & I'll be busy again at work (i work for an educational company).
Today i thought i would finally colour up one of my Tiddly Inks images as I've bought quite a few but haven't had time to colour them up. This cute little girl is called Summer sweet Wryn and i have coloured her using Pro Markers. I have covered the lolly pops with glossy accents to make the lollies look more realistic.

Happy Anniversary

Through the looking glass

Afternoon everyone,

Things are pretty quiet in my little world at the moment which I'm not complaining about. I do have a rather long list of cards that people have asked for so i need to get a wiggle on with them but apart from that all is calm.
I did buy the complete set of Distressed Markers a few weeks ago so have been playing with them & today's card has the lovely Lili of the Valley Looking Glass coloured with them.
I will say that it has taken me a few attempts to get this right & i am really pleased with how it turned out in the end.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts & the sentiment is Lili of the Valley. I have distressed the edges of the papers with a pair of scissors & Tim Holtz distressed ink but i can't remember which one lol

Charisma - Up in the Clouds

Good Morning,

What a lovely morning it is as well, i think for one day only we are having a hot sunny day & then it's back to showers again. We've had some fab thunder storms recently, thunder, lightening & heavy heavy rain.

OK today is Challenge day over at Charisma Cardz & this weeks theme is Up in the Clouds so we want to see some clouds in your creations this week.
My card is a bit different this week & i was asked if i could make a card with a Lancaster Bomber on it as it was for her Fathers 70th & he loves Lancs so this is what I came up with & she loved it.
I have distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distressed ink pad & some scissors, the papers are from my Wellington Bear paper pad.

Very simple card & i was really quite pleased with how it came out as i was only given 1 days notice to do it :-)

Our wonderful sponsors this week are

Pink Cat Studio
Winner will receive 5 digis of their choose

Bugaboo Stamps

So pop on over to Charisma Cardz & see what the rest of the DT have come up with & i can't wait to see all your cards.
