baby cards

Martin has installed a new hardrive in the computer so i had to back everything up, upon reinstalling everything i came across some Baby cards i had made last year and never got around to sharing them, so no time like the present.
All cards were coloured using promarkers i cant remember papers etc as it was so long ago. I'm not feeling 100% at the minute but ill soon be back to it with more to share.

gone Fishin'

i coloured this image in ages ago and found it today amongst my images ready to colour draws. i thought it wood go perfect with the October afternoon pages I've had for ages, a lovely woodland theme to the card, this will go in my spares box ready for a last minute card for someone. The image (if i remember rightly) was coloured in promarkers and distress inks.
Ive got a day off tomorrow and i plan to spend it shopping, i have an afternoon hair appointment then im spending the whole evening crafting so i'll have more to share in a few days :)

Lili of the valley

Im not doing too bad at this blogging lark! twice in one week, i hope i can keep it up, LOL.
Today i have a card to share, the image is a lili of the valley stamp and i love this image, its gorgeous to colour in with promarkers or copics, but on this occasion I've coloured it in with Tim Holtz distress inks.
I've stamped it on pearlecent card so it already had a shimmer, the shimmer shows through the colouring too.
It is my mums birthday today so i set about making this at the weekend, and I'm sure I've made a very similar if not the same card in the past, I'll have to have a trawl through my blog and see if i can see it.
Ive had a long day at work today and Martin has a night off to watch the footie, so i think ill lock myself away in my craft area and create, I'm sure Martin will keep me supplied in tea and biscuits.

Another year!

It seems i'm not so good keeping up with my blog, i was toying with the idea of making it private so i can be my own online diary, but as I'm not a daily writer I've changed my mind I'm keeping it as a place to show and tell (so to speak)
I have still been crafting but I've been too busy (read that to say too lazy) to photograph and upload pics. it wasn't until i got an email asking when i was going to upload more cards that i thought why not, i honestly thought no one bothered to read my blog.
So on to the card, I had a request for a card for a lady who's sister who was off to New York for her birthday so she wanted something related to that, i thought hard and tried a few ideas and eventually came up with said card, i wasn't too sure but the customer loved it and couldn't wait to give it to her sister.
I drew the new york skyline onto an apple shape i had cut from the cricut give a hoot cartridge, the lady figure was an image from computer as were the district signs, i used an awful lot of stickles to add some bling. i hope you like. i will try to be less lazy in future and post more often.
