Strawberries and Cream

 Hi there, this is my entry for this weeks
 "Papertake Challenge"

 The image is from "Mo's Digital Pencil", I really like her images they are very different. The frame is "Spellbinders" Floral Ovals, I applied adhesive paper before cutting the oval and then dipped it in micro glass beads, I cut the centre out to make the frame. The paper and sentiment are computer generated and the flowers are cut from a die that I can't remember who makes it, it's just a little set  of three dies. The strawberries and flourish are cut with the Craft Robo. I think that about all folks! Hope you like it.

Hi, this is my offering for "Willow Sketchie Challenge" this week. The little angel image is from "Saturated Canary", I'm not too pleased with the colouring of her, I wanted her to be a little paler but never mind.The papers are from Papermania "Christmas Past" CD, the baubles I cut with Craft Robo and coloured with Copics, I thought they turned out rather well, I also used "Spellbinder" Holly Border. Anyway, hope you like it.

Flight of Fancy

This is my entry for this weeks "Mojo Monday". The image is from "Saturated Canary", her name is "Fancy", the papers are from Docrafts CD, and of course Romantic Rectangles and Vintage Lace Border "Spellbinders". I coloured the image with Promarkers and Polychromas pencils, which I am not very good at, still practicing. The stick pin I made. Hope you like it.

Saturday Challenge

This is my card for "Saturday Challenge" the theme this week is Christmas which is why I have entered a card this week as I have just started to make a few Christmas cards. Hope you like it!
I used a Mica Mask that I cut about a bit for the embossing, the ornaments are cut with my Craft Robo I stuck some double sided adhesive onto white card and then added Sue Wilson's clear beads, I think the effect of these is lovely. The strings are Vintage Bakers Twine. I didn't have a holly leaf cut at the time so I used Spellbinder "Poinsettia" leaves they almost work and the berries are  red dew drops. The Merry Christmas is a clear stamp that I've had for a couple of years and just love it. Thanks for dropping by

Sparkle and Shine

Hi, here is my card for this weeks "Willow Sketchie Chalenge", I thought a little bit of Frosty the Snowman would cool me down from the extreme heat of Wednesday. Phew! it was too hot here to do anything but moan.....
The paper and image are from Docraft "Christmas Pastimes" CD. The Poinsettia is from guess who "Spellbinders". The little stick pin I made, thank you Linda for the know how...

Sorry the pictures are quite dark, I really am no Armstrong Jones when it comes to photography, but I will try harder!
Hope you like it.
