A Card for the LOV Challenge "Anything Goes"

Good Afternoon Everyone, well its pouring of rain here in Gloucestershire and its not nice at all, at the moment it seems to have eased of thank goodness, but the poor pup has got soaked the last time we took her out and I hope it stays dry for the next time she needs to. Anyway todays card has been created for this weeeks LOV Challenge "Anything Goes" and Ive used this sweet image of all these children out posting cards, they can come and do mine if they like though they do need stamps first.
Anyway Ive coloured my image with my Copic pens then used Nestabilitie Die Labels 17 to cut it out then created the mount by drawing around the die and cut it out by hand out of blue card. The sentiment is yet another of the LOV stamps and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and one beautiful paper from the Maja Vintage Christmas Paper Pack, which my very special adopted daughter bought for me for my recent birthday, thank you sweetheart you know who you are. Ive then used a piece of butter muslin which I have pulled the edges of and laid it with a pleat in the middle down on top then wrapped a piece of binding ribbon around the middle and stuck it to the back of the first mount. I then positioned my mounted image towards the right and the sentiment at the bottom on the left.
I then created a triple bow with more of the same ribbon and stuck to the side of my image, and to finish of Ive used several Martha Stewart Snowflake punches to punch out a snowflake and then used some German Glass Glitter to sparkle it up and then positioned it at the top on the left hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Good Morning Everyone, well the sun is out and its quite warm outside, Ive just been into town to pick up my magazines and to give the pup a walk, this is the first time Ive done that for about a month so it was just nice to escape from four walls, and it certainly shattered the pup shes now whacked out asleep by the side of my computer desk.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Sugar Bowl Challenge "A Sketch" and Ive used this sweet digi image for my card and coloured it with my copics before cutting it out with my Nestabilitie Die No.1 and then drew around the die to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one of the Whimsey Christmas stamps from last year and Ive cut this out with a circle die and mounted it on a larger diecut.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of turquoise blue card and one of two papers from The First Edition "Christmas Joy" paper pack this first paper is a patterned one with snowmen and penquins on a blue background, on top is a stripped one in similar colour tones, across the card Ive then wrapped a film strip ribbon of snowmen and penquins to and attached it to the back of the first mount, The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.

Bearlymine Designs Challenge Twentyfour - "Your Favourite Things"

Good Morning Everyone, as you are probably aware our DT Leader and Owner hasn't been very well now for quite a few weeks and the news is still very sketchy, but we do want to wish her a speedy recovery and hope it wont be to long before shes back to her normal self, she works so hard and we do so miss her, Get Better Quickly Donna we need you. Anyway back to this fortnights Challenge for Bearlymine Designs and is all to do with using "Your Favourite Things" and if you anything like me you have certain things you just can't do without when making Cards and mine I will show you as we go along. This Challenge is being sponsored by the following people:-


 Wow there some awesome prizes there again and I know if would be just fabulous to win one of them I just wish is were possible for us to do so. Anyway Ive created this easel card as its one of my most favourite shapes to use.
And Im also led to believe its one of Donna's favourite shapes to, anyway I had the luck to be able use this gorgeous "Tickled Pink" image and her name is "Lolita Kellita" Ive printed her onto white card then used my copics and tria pens to colour her, then Ive used the large Rectangle Nestabilitie Die to cut her out and the they Deckle edged one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and I think its got a really lovely way of expressing the feeling of the season.
The base size of this card is a 6"x 6" and Ive used to mounts in red with one of two papers from Donna's Bearlymine Designs "Winters Swirl" digi set this first paper is a beautiful red background with holly leaves on, on top is a red green and white pattern paper which has been cut into a 5" square and Ive used the holly all around punch set from Martha Stewart, these where then layered up and Ive used a deep cream lace on both with a wide red satin ribbon which has then been attached to the back of this mount.
For the front of my card I then used the large heart die from Cherry Lynn on some red pearlescent card and this was then tucked into the back of the ribbon and lace and Ive then positioned my mounted image on top. For the inside I used my mounted sentiment as a stop this was positioned in the middle of the lace but before sticking it down Ive tucked a further heart shape behind it on the left hand side.
To finish of the front I have created a floral spray with two colours of hellebore's and some holly berries these were attached to the card on top of some punched out holly leaves on some silicone glue.
Ive got to say that this is one of my most favourite designs of cards I love the simplicity of the layering and the lace and ribbon which finishes it of, and the flower sprays brings the whole thing alive. I do hope you enjoy seeing this card and now you've seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Bearly Mine Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of a extremely talented team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this "Your Favourite Things" Challenge.

Cards for Men - Challenge 24 - "Fancy Folds"

Good Morning Everyone, yes another fortnight has flown by and we have now reached our twenty fourth Challenge for Cards for Men, and this time we want to see your "Fancy Folds" and there are certainly a lot to choose from so I will leave your choice up to you.
This time we are being sponsored by a new company and that is "Whimsie Doodles"
And here is what Melyssa says about her Company :-

Whimsie Doodles is so excited to be sponsoring the new challenge! In March of 2009 Melyssa Connolly, artist and owner, began turning her whimsical hand-drawn images into digital files for sale online. Whimsie Doodles' digital stamp line features images that range from cute little boys and girls, to punny stuff, and everything in-between. We enjoy sharing lots of samples on our company blog, where we also post challenges and tutorials.

And they are offering as a prize a $10 Gift Certificate to spend on their Website.

We were lucky enough to be given several gorgeous images to play with and I chose these ones for my DT Card.
The little lad is called "Hoodie Jayson" and I thought that the sentiment went quite well with him so I chose to use that to, the acutal card shape is one that I invented myself its a sort of triple fold and its based around a 6"x 6" card base, the papers I used are Papermania's "For Him" paper pad.
The main image was printed onto white card and I then coloured him with my copics and tria pens, then I used the large Rectangle Nestabilitie Die to cut him out, and then drew around the die onto blue card to create the mount for him.  The sentiment was done in the same way. The last flourish is the computer button that was attached to the middle fold.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop across to the Cards for Men Blogspot and see what the rest of my fellow Design Team Members have created with this "Fancy Folds" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

A Card for Just Magnolia "Ribbons" Challenge

Good Afternoon Everyone, well I thought I would for a change made another Xmas Card and I think this one will probably go to my Mother in Law as she seems to be the only one I havent made a card for yet. Anyway Ive used one of the new Sweet Christmas images of Tilda, isnt she cute, Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a oval Nestabilitie Die to cut her out, and the beaded oval for the mount out of red card. The sentiment is one of my stash stamps that I have stamped onto a piece of white card and mounted it also on some red card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, the one and only paper Ive used is a Memory Box paper its a cream background with a spray of roses down the left side, Ive stuck on top and wrapped around the right hand side a piece of lace and red satin ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the image with the sentiment on the left hand side at the bottom. To finish of I have created a spray of roses in several sizes and stuck them in the top left hand corner on some punched out rose leaves with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

My Birthday and Bloganniversary

This is a stickie and will stay at the top until the 19th November. Please scroll down to find the new posts.

Three years ago on the 19th of November a very dear friend of mine introduced me to blogging, it started in a small way but has steadily over the years got bigger, involving joining many Challenges to start of with then being asked to join Design Teams, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it and would like now to offer some blog candy as a very big thank you to you all, but firstly I have some stipulations, this is for my real followers and not for those who only add their names because they want something for nothing, so I would advise you if thats what you intend to do please dont, because if your not a regular visitor that I know of you wont be eligible to win either one of my two "Surprise Parcels" one is for my "Great Britain" followers and the other for my "Overseas" ones. I will be screening those that join the list suddenly out of the blue and if Im not happy with that entrant they will not win my candy, sorry about that but in the past I have had lots of "fair weather Followers" who only join in the hope of winning something for nothing and then suddenly dissappear as quickly as they appear, Ive even had blogs that only have Blog Candy as their posts and its not fair to those very faithful followers who regularly visit and leave such lovely comments. As its my birthday on the 26th I felt it would be right to combine the two and give the two prizes instead of the usual one, Im not going to tell you whats in them it will be a complete surprise to the winners.

A Christmas Card for Cuddly Buddly

Good Afternoon Everyone, well this is my last card for Cuddly Buddly, as there are no more Challenges I thought Id make it as a thank you to Kim and Ive even used her own digi images and papers. I printed it onto white card before using my copics to colour it. Then cut it out with a Nestabilitie Circle Die, and used one of the Tear Drop Circle die for the mount, I also used a smaller one for the sentiment which is another of Kims own designs.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and the first of two papers from Cuddly Buddly, a very pretty red background with holly pattern, on top of this I have used the second paper a white background with green stripes and another holly pattern on, this was then folded into a smaller strip and cut into four then stuck it across the card and a wide tartan ribbon was then positioned on top and attached to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, and to finish of I have used a large poinsetta and punched out holly leaves and holly berries stuck to the top left hand corner on some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

A Big Thank You to you All

Good Afternoon, well the sun is out and Im gradually making some progress into getting better, Im still coughing well and my voice is still sounding like something resembling someone from Star Wars but now Im on some Antibiotics Im keeping my fingers crossed it wont be long before I start to feel a 100% better. I really dont want to go back down the road Ive just been on as it really did knock me for six, but I want to thank you all so very much for the really lovely comments and good wishes so many of you have left for me. And now that I have managed to create a card its to show my thanks in our usual way "Bless you All". Ive also got some sad news to announce to you all "Cuddly Buddly" Challenges are finishing this Friday as Kim is finding it a struggle to not only cope with the dwindling entrants but also trying to run a shop as well, its just to much like hitting your head against a brick wall, so I also want to thank her for inviting me to be part of one of her teams even though as it turned out for a very short time, I do so hope that it wont stop you all going and visiting her regualarly and seeing what stunning things she has for sale.
And as it is I have used the "Bits of Ivory" digi image and papers from Cuddly Buddly to create my card, isnt she a sweetie, I do hope you like the results. Today Im not going to write out a long post for this but I suspect you will be able to give it a good shot at working out the receipe for it for yourself.

Thank you all for the Lovely Comments

Good Morning Everyone, its a good job that its not this week that all my blog scheduling is needed as Im still struggling to recoup my energy, I have never felt so tired and exhausted, it doesnt take much to sap me of any energy I might have. My throat is still extremely sore and my voice sounds more masculine than female, and I have one nasty raspy cough with now a chest infection, my ears feel as if Ive been in a diving bell, not sure who they belong to, the only good thing so far is it hasnt gone to my sinus as I know from last year it would be fatal, it causes no end of problems with my teeth. Anyway I will try in a few days to get around and visit more of you, at the moment Im just doing my DT comment work and that alone is tiring me, so please forgive me for not coming by yours. I suspect I will be spending this afternoon sleeping this energy burst, so forgive me for leaving this a bit short, and thank you again for all your lovely wishes.

Cuddly Buddly's Challenge 19 - "A Receipe" 3 Flowers, 2 Buttons and 1 Ribbon

Good Morning Everyone, I cannot believe that I have now been with the Cuddly Buddly team for 12 weeks and this is my 6th Challenge Card for them, what a lovely person Kim is thank you so much for choosing me for the Cuddly Team I do so enjoy being part of it. Anyway todays challenge is "A Receipe" and we want you to use 3 Flowers, 2 Buttons and 1 Ribbon on your card, and Im sure that wont be a difficult task as most of us use these on all our cards. This time I  am using the gorgeous Kim Sponaugle's "Picture Kitchen Studio" images and papers and if you would like to visit Kim's Cuddly Buddly Webshop you will be able to see the whole range of stunning images and papers she has created, heres the link for you, I would also like to let you know that not only does Kim sell digi products but also anything a crafter could desire and she also has a lot of freebies to give away, please do go and visit her shop and see for yourself.
And here is my card for this weeks Challenge.
For my card I have used the "Cupcake Fairy" and you will find it here I have printed her onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.22 to cut her out then used the die itself to draw around to create the mount for her. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was just stamped onto white card ready for me to mould around the cupcake die cut.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, on top of this is my first paper of three that I have used these are again "Picture Kitchen Studio's Multi Fairy Fun"digi papers and you will find there here, I used a white background paper with pink swirls on for the first one, then on top is a large spotted one on which I have used a cupcake border punch from Martha Stewart on the edge, and the third paper a small spotted one and Ive done the same to that edge to, these were layered up on top of one another. Then on top of these I have used a piece of the same pink card as the mount to run through my cuttlebug with a cupcake embossing folder, this was then stuck down on top of the two other papers.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle and I then cut out from a bit more pink card a cupcake case and for the top I used a piece of white pearlescent card, and of course for the candle a smaller piece of the pink again. I then moulded the sentiment around the case and used some stickles on the topping to create hundreds and thousands. To finish off I used a lace ribbon flower with beads in for my ribbon embellishment in the top left hand corner, and with a couple of cupcake buttons I finished of the card in the two opposite corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Cuddly Buddly Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of a extremely talented team have created to inspire you hopefully to take part in this weeks Challenge.
