Recycled Allsorts

Good morning
This week we have a recycling theme for you at Allsorts
Helene would like you to have a recycled element on your creation

This card I made for one of Jacks friends who had an accident yesterday and is in hospital  :(  ....
The ribbon tabs were on a box of chocs from christmas they were quite frayed when I removed them but look ok after a bit of manouvering,
this is a 4.5"x4.5" card and the image is one of those tiny hanglers and its so cute dont you think?

We look forward to seeing your recycling this week :)

A few cards to share....

Well I cant remember the last time I posted cards that wern't DT ones but I thought i'd share these commission cards with you They are for a work collegue of my mums and she is going to be the goddmother of three children over the next 2 months!
Here are her cards

This card is for the brother of one of the babys being christened as they are both being christened together but as he is 9 I thought a traditional card wouldnt be suitable...

Right i'm off to have a boiled egg for my supper and choose an outfit for tommorrow, off on a rare night out with the OH and some fab friends for a meal at our local Italian tommorrow and i'm treating myself to a hair cut!

Have a great evening and i'll see you all Saturday for the next installement of Allsorts....

Allsorts week 86!!! Teal and Brown.....

Good morning well the weeks are flying by it doesnt seem two minutes since Christmas and here we are half way through January!

This week at Allsorts its the lovely Kirstens turn to set the theme and she has gone with the colour combo of
Teal and Brown
and this week we are sponsored by
 Stitchy Stamps

I wanted to give it a distressed and aged feel as the papers were already pretty distressed looking so tried to complement it with some distressed embelishments,
 the strip across the bottom has been embossed sanded inked ripped scrunched and re inked to give it some texture then the ribbon was added to reflect this , the ribbon is only taped down oneside this allowed me to twist and place it where I wanted it to go the flowers were inked round the edges although sometimes when I look at it it just looks grubby but maybe thats the effect? 

I hope you will join us this week at Allsorts and look forward to visiting your entries

Allsorts Fancy folds

This week at Allsorts its my turn to choose the theme and I have chosen
Fancy Folds
I'd like to see different folds in your card base rather than the normal folded in half card...

I made my crad blank by cutting the front half off a 6x6 and the middle card is a 4.5x4.5 card which has been put in the opposite way round the fairy image is quite new havn't managed to ink her up till now and I went for water colour pencils for a change this time and I'm really pleased with how the colouring turned out I highlighted her with a purple sakura stardust pen some I watered down to brush over her wings to give them a gentle shimmer...
here is a blurry close up (which quite defeats the object)

The papers are from a free My Minds Eye pack I got in a mag which are from the Quite contrary collection and they are soooooo lovely!!!
A few gems and flowers from my stash and a bit of sakura stardust doodling at the corners to finish off....

I hope you can join us at Allsortsthis week
