commissioned mens cards



Hi all well I have been super busy cleaning,de-cluttering,job interviews,gardening,cooking,crafting and reading lots of crafting books and magazines for inspiration! time is flying by and the weather is set to change again! the Olympics have started yippee and the holidays are here phew! I have just finished a huge wedding commission which took me 6 weeks to complete and now I am starting to get asked for Christmas cards! no rest for me LOL so I will be flying in and out of my Blog the next 4 weeks with commissioned cards as I don't think I am going to have time for many challenges boo-hoo! thanks for popping by and I hope you are having a lovely summertime and enjoying the sunshine whilst you can LOL.

Paper Smooches cards


I have fallen in love with Paper Smooches stamps they are way too cute so I purchased the' my guy' set and made these two cards very quickly . The images are so easy to colour no fussy bits to worry about and you know at Christmas when you get those silly little toys inside the cheapy crackers well I kept mine and now I use them as embellishments on my cards. I have used a wooden golf tee on my golf cart card and I think it looks fab! so hunt around for all those little pieces and use them on your cards.
thanks for popping by,
happy crafting

A WEE WHIMSY CARD

Here is a little wee whimsy stamp and isn't she adorable!
I got here free with my craft magazine so I couldn't wait to stamp her out and colour her up with copics and lots of glitter!
I used MME Miss Caroline 'dolled up'collection which I love along with Prima flowers and American Crafts glitter brads.
A few W.O.C pearls and a butterfly from my stash and ta-da
I have been having a great time playing with images and colouring so not many completed cards of late to share but I have started the xmas ones LOL
