Forever Friends Simple...

This week at Forever Friends the theme is to show a quick make for a card in a hurry...

This card was made using a scrap of digi gingham paper that I have been saving because its such a lovely shade of blue and the image was Quickly nested up onto a matching scalloped circle the sentiment was printed straight on from the pc and the font is LD going nuts....

I love this card and although it was simple to make this does not mean it took any less effort but it was quick and long overdue posting as it was for a DT buddy who had a baby in the new year!

Allsorts Week 35

This week at Allsorts it is Kirstens turn to choose the challenge and she chose the theme brown and pink.

I used this sweet Greeting Farm Image and the sketch over at Papertake weekly the papers are basic grey with a few flowers and to jazz them up a little i stamped over them with a flourish stamp the sentiment is from craftwork cards but to start off with this was white and silver so I coloured it with my promarkers and tada a matching sentiment...

Its been a while!!

Well its been ages since I posted and unfortunately with good reason as my other half is being made redundant and I just havnt had the urge to craft.( or to comment especially sorry for the wonderful crafters who join in the Allsorts and Forever friends challenges who I DT on normal commenting will resume a.s.a.p)...I was putting all my efforts into having a great family Christmas so we would remember it as a happy time and not one tainted with the unfortunate news!!

But we had a fantastic Christmas and I am now looking forward to get right back into the crafty stuff....

New Years resolution to always look on the brighter side ( as the diet I started yesterday didnt seem to agree with the baileys I have just had lol!!)

So to start my crafty new year off I decided to join in with the always fab challenge at Papertake weekly which was a fab sketch from Dawny P

I used a fab coco image from Digistampboutique so pretty and lovely to colour, papers are from my minds eye and flowers are from my stash

The next card is for the challenge at Anyone for Anya and the theme this week is anything goes so I made thsi card for my sil she loves pink so thought she would like this,

The image was given to me by the lovely Tasha thanks hun
