Cat and Jamie's wedding card

Sorry we are late again. It's been a busy weekend. 

We had a wonderful day at Catherine and Jamie's wedding yesterday. 

This is the card I made for them. 

The colours for the day were champagne and ivory with gold accents so I stayed close to this. 

The image is called You and Me from Tiddly Inks. 

It is such a fabulous wedding image. 

Hope you like it. TTFN Jude xx

The Wizard

Good afternoon all, sorry I am so late posting today, but it's been a bit manic around here with all the prep for today's wedding. 

But while I have a few minutes I thought I would put a card on that I made for Ian's birthday on Thursday. 

This one is using the Wizard digi stamp from Tiddly Inks.

I coloured him with Copics and Spectrum Noirs and then cut him out by hand. 

I used bits of paper from my scraps box with a piece of green paper with stars on, and backed them all with dark brown card. 

The 30 is chipboard numbers which I coloured with a marker pen. Then I added a couple of punched stars etc. to finish it off.

Hope you like it.

Take care and I'll see you soon.

Male birthday

This is one of the cards I made for Ian's birthday yesterday.

Isn't he a cutie?

I layered a few papers from my scrap box and used the offcuts to make the flags. 

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

Happy 30th Birthday Ian

Good morning all, today is my son-in-law's 30th birthday, and we haven't taken too much delight in keep telling him he's getting old! honestly ;o)) But the worst culprit for it is my daughter K, she thinks it's highly amusing to keep reminding him of how old he is today lol. So I decided to make her an amusing card to send to him too, this is what I came up with. 

The image is from The Stamping Chef, and was great fun to colour. I coloured her with Copics and Spectrum Noirs and then cut her out by hand. 

The papers are a mixture from a couple of different collections and the piece of backing card was in my scrap box. 

I found some coordinating ribbon in the stash and used this down one side and across the bottom.

I wrote up a couple of sentiments on the PC and printed them out on plain white card. Then I used a small tag die and Labels 29 to cut them out. 

I finished the card off with a few chunky black pearls.

Hope you (and Ian) like it, take care and I'll see you soon.

I thought I'd share a couple of challenge entries I've made this week.

The first card is being entered into Scribble and scrap crafts challenge 27 - anything goes.

This is my second entry and I may just do a third lol!

The image is Give Big from Saturated Canary.

The second is another Mojo Monday - this time number 362.  This is the sketch.

I chose a very simple stamp for this which I coloured with Distress Markers.

I also entered "In these shoes" into the Clear and Bright challenge at

That's all from me today.  I'm off to London again today and tomorrow, so not much time for crafting - boo!

Daisy Flowers

Good morning all, hope you are well. Today's card is one I made a while ago but totally forgot to blog.

It's a very simple card, but still pretty.

I used a 6 x 6 card blank and cut a piece of spotty tissue paper with some serrated edge scissors for the front. 

Then I used a small Tonic punch to punch three little daisy flowers from white card.

I added these to the front and then got some curly silver craft wire to make the stems. Then I added a little pink gem to the centre of each flower. 

I used one of my favourite stamps to stamp the sentiment and then used glue dots to secure it in place with a slight curve for a bit of interest. 

Like I said a very simple card, but hope you still like it. Take care and I'll see you soon.

Pirate Lovejoy

I'm taking part in more challenges.
I'm entering this one for a couple including over at (R#193 ~ Favourite colour combo)
Guess what mine is??

I love red and black.  It is such a strong combination but still fits with lots of my images.

This one is another Saturated Canary image called Pirate Lovejoy.

The papers are all from my stash and everything is layered on an 8 x 8 fluted blank.

I've even decorated the inside :0

Hope you like it.
