Hello everyone and today I would like to share with you a clean and simple card for the challenge over at
which is black and white  and one other colour which was orange for me.
This was a quick card to put together once I had decided which stamps I was going to use which are Recollections Bird Set and PaperArtsy Flora and Fauna 6.
To add some colour I used Sakura Glaze pen in orange and a Gelly Roll pen also in orange and then to finish off a couple of jewels for the  dots of the i's.
It is refreshing to do a clean and simple card now and again just using one or two products to give a lovely card.
Take care friends

Hello and here we are again with another one stop craft challenge and this week we have a sketch for our inspiration.Our sponsor is Kenny  K Downloads as well as some candy kindly donated by fellow design team member Andreja.
I could not resist this cute kitty digi stamp as I know there are many of you out there who just love your cats.I have kept the card pretty simple using the sketch for the background elements.

The sentiment means this card could be for a get well card or just saying hello and getting in touch with a long lost friend.
Once again I have used my Promarkers for colouring the image and then added a few flower embellishments around the edge of the image.
I do hope you can join us for this week's challenge and look forward to seeing your creations.

Until the next time take care

Love is in the air this week with Valentine's day on Thursday and the theme for this week's challenge over at one stop craft challenge.
Our sponsor for this week is "saturated canary"run by the lovely Krista and her images are adorable so for my card I picked this digi image called "Canary Love".

The background is Spellbinders Heart Square cut from pink fun foam and then cut in half across the diagonal and placed at opposite corners.The wonderful image was coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment was stamped using Waltzingmouse "Compact Family" and "Fancy Phrases".

To finish off the card I added a few of the little left over hearts from the die cutting and now I will be putting in an envelope ready to give hubby on Valentine's Day so till the next time take care and enjoy your weekend.

Hello and it is time for another challenge over at one stop craft challenge and this week the theme is "Anything Goes".
Our wonderful sponsors for this week's challenge are "Floppy Latte Designs" and for my card I used this lovely digi image "Artsy Flower Design"which I printed off in two sizes using the larger print behind the topper and then again the flower head to add some dimention.
The image was coloured with Promarkers and then added some glitter in the centre and on the edges of the petals.

The edge of the topper was achieved by running a silver marker pen around to form a fine border. A little sentiment stamped on a tag and secured with a blue ribbon finishes the card off nicely.
Hope you get a chance to pop over to one stop craft challenge and join in the fun so until the next time take care as always
