I haven't managed to take part in the Papertake Challange for a few weeks now so I really enjoyed making this card. I always like to work with the sketches that Dawny P does. I hope you like the card please leave a comment if you visit. Best wishes, Lesley.
The backing paper I used was was from the Pixie Dreams CD, the embossed paper was washed damask from Pink Petticoat and the image I googled "fairies", and this one came up. How nice is that.

Cute Card Thursday

This was such a nice sketch to work from, I really enjoyed putting this card together. It was the first time I have used any of my Holly & Madison images, I also found some hologram card that I think was about one of the first things that I bought off of a Craft Channel and have never really found any great use for, but I think it looks OK on this card. Hope you like it, Happy Mothers Day, Lesley

Cakes and Corners

The weather has been so glorious that I felt guilty being indoors crafting, so I had to take the time and mow the lawns for the first time. I hate it when it looks so unkept, anyway now it's really pretty outside and I am happy to be inside looking out as the sun has now gone behind the clouds. This is my small effort for two challanges, Sketch Saturday with the rounded corners, I'm sorry to say that I only have a small corner punch, I was looking at a larger on the other day, wish now I had bought it. The second challange for this card is The Secret Crafters Have your cake and eat it. Can't seem to get away from pink at the moment. I used Pink petticoat papers from the Sweet Cupcake set my ucttlebug embossing folder, sorry dont know the name and the fairy is from Joanna Sheen's Wild Rose collection. Please leave a comment if you like the card. Best wishes for mothers day, Lesley

Two In One

At last I have managed to make one card for two challanges, Friday Sketchers and Stamp Something. I had great fun making them, I used my new Peerless Design CD "Pixie Dreams" I'm never really sure of CDs as to how much good content there is in them, but I must say that there is loads in this one; can't wait to get the Fairy one.

I have even done an insert and envelope, that was soooo easy. Hope you like the card, please leave a comment, it's always nice to hear from all of you out there. Best wishes Lesley.

Sketch Saturday

I have had such fun today making this card. I have wanted to use a background for some while but couldn't really get my head around it, well finally I have. I hope you like it.
I choose the colouring from the ribbon; the picture doesn't really do it any justice it is such a delicate blend of pink and mocha.

I used the coloured in image from Girl About Town for the background, but I coloured Juliet in myself using some pencils. The shooes in the window are from Pink Petticoat, Lola's Boudoir and the paper are also from. PP and of course Swiss Dots Cittlebug

Please leave a comment, I really love to hear what you have to say. Best wishes, Lesley

Saturday Challange

Oh lucky me! I just thought I would check out Saturday's Challange and the theme was masking, so the card that I had made for Geoff'f 64th birthday was just right as I had to mask away the little bear around the 6. Sorry it's a bit of a naff picture but I think you get the jist of it. Please leave a comment, I really appreciate them. Best wishes, Lesley

no time no time

I'm really upset that I have had no time to blog for the past week or so. My poor old man has been in hospital for a replacement, replacement hip; so I have been running to and fro from Medway. At last he is home andnoe I'm running to and fro from kitchen to bedroom to lounge etc. Can't wait for things to get back to normal so I have some time to make cards, I think I'm going into some kind of remission or whatever it;'s called. Determine to do a couple of challanges this week thoug.
