A Cherry On The Top

Well what a difference here today after all the rain yesterday, the sun is out and it is a lovely day.   The stamp for the main image on today's card is "A Cherry on Top" from SUGAR NELLIE  the plate of cakes was a freebie on a magazine.  I love cup cakes and think these ones look yummy.

It is nothing like Summer here infact it is pouring down.  Our challenge this week over at THE SUGAR NELLIE GROUP  on Facebook is to make a card inspired by Strawberries & Cream, they make me think of Summer so I have used this cutie called Summer Ice Cream I have coloured her with Promarkers.


Morning all from a very wet NE Scotland.  I have added two sweet images onto my side bar they are Digi stamps that will soon be available over at FUNKY KITS I can't wait to get my hands on them.  The art work is amazing on this range, mind you Karen always brings us amazing images be it in rubber or digi.

Morning all, the challenge over at SIMPLY LESS IS MORE this week is to make a one layer card where the sentiment is the focal point.  It has taken me all morning to work this one out, the images are from PAULETTE.  They are two seperate images I wanted to fade the Giraffe into the background with the sentiment on the top, after going through loads of copy paper I have printed it off onto 300gsm linen look cardstock and I hope I have acheived the desired effect.  I look forward to hearing what you all think of it.

Good afternoon, after a rather chilly start to our day the sun is now shining, I do hope it stays like this for the weekend.  The images used on todays card are from Woodware, the paper is called Up Up & Away from First Edition.  The flower is made using a punch and the cardstock I used for matting & Layering.  These are just some of the things I bought yesterday on my crafty shopping trip.  There are so many other things I should be doing but what the heck they will still be there tomorrow and who can resist playing with new stash lol.

I think this is such a sweet image it is from MO MANNING the sentiment is another one from PAULETTE  she has a sentiment for everything. I have had a lovely day today I went to visit the home of  SUGAR NELLIE  I bought some lovely crafting goodies - well I chose them and himself paid for them lol.  Hope you have all had a lovely day and the sun has been shining.

The challenge this week over at LESS IS MORE  was for a bit of red.  The image and sentiment I have used are both from PAULETTE  I printed them directly into some white linen cardstock and coloured with Promarkers.  I feel the beautiful image and sentiment are well suited to this type of card.

I just love this Digi image it was Friday Freebie over at Bugaboo Stamps  the sentiment which I think is just perfect is another freebie from the very generous and talented Paulette over at create with TLC.  I coloured the image with Prisma Pencils though I think a lot more practice is needed with these.

It has been a lovely warm sunny day here in the NE of Scotland - makes a nice change lol.  Hubby decided we should go out for the day and of course we ended up in one or two crafty places so I came home very happy.  I will spend this evening playing with my new goodies and who knows I may have something to show you tomorrow.

WOW card challenge on Facebook

Sorry I haven't been around for a while but ill health and family have kept me away.  The SUGAR NELLIE challenge on facebook this week was a white on white card.  I have had this image coloured for a while but couldn't decide what I wanted to do with it so decided to use it today.  She is called Fairy Tale from the Simply Sassy range and is available HERE.  I have coloured her with Promarkers.  Also used is a Cuttleubug embossed frame also some punched flowers and leaves.
