Todays card is a stair fold card which I will be entering into this weeks challenge at The Next Level. Each week their projects look so great but I just have not had a chance to enter yet. All the instructions for this card are found on their site.
I coloured 2 summery hAnglar girls with my usual prismas and cut them out and pop dotted them on the card. The gorgeous polka dot paper is from 'Little Yellow Bicycle' and I am very sad as I only have a few scraps left. Each panel is machine stitched onto the card.
I made the tag, (which is not perfect, but I will stick with for now!) by embossing the sentiment with white embossing powder and then using distress inks, blended the colours to make the background. The distress inks resist the embossed sentiment so the sentiment stands out. I stamped some brown flowers from Hero Arts onto the tag.
Thanks for popping by. Hope the sun is shining with you and have a wonderful day!

And thank you to Janny for this fabulous award. Her blog is a joy to visit and so much inspiration! I love to pop by and see what she has made :)Before I go I just want to say 'Hi' to the girls I met on Saturday at Simply Create. Hi Debbie and Jenny *waves* ! It was great to put faces to your blogs!! I had a really great time demo-ing, with such lovely ladies coming to watch. You all made not half as nerve -wracking as I thought it might be. Have a great day,

Inside the acetate layer I have added a layer of pale blue card. I stamped my cartwheeling girl direcly onto the cardstock and coloured with copics. The pencils didn't work so well on the textured cardstock.

Todays card is for hubbys birthday tomorrow. I didn't have any male images grown up enough for him so decided to go on the hunt for digi images. I found this fabulous Mikey from Carmed Crafts andI think he fits the bill perfectly. He kinda reminds me of hubby when we first met..he had bleached blond floppy hair! Nowadays it is the more traditional short back and sides!
He is coloured with prismas. He originally had grey trainers which blended in quite well and in a spur of the moment decision I decided the image needed a flash of colour so changed his trainers to red. I just wish I had kept them gey!! Too late now!
The papers are from Basic Grey 'Granola' collection and the screw brads are from e-bay. That fab jute is from Nikki's new on-line shop, Bunny- Zoe Crafts. Fab servive Nikki! Thank you!!
Have a great day...whatever you are up to..

Medium: prismas, white ink pen, Hero Arts shadow ink (for edges)
Papers: Basic Grey 'Granola'
Tools: distressing tool, circle punches

I made this card using this weeks Friday Sketchers. I had Tilda all coloured just ready to go on a card. I want to thank Rach for the clear and simple explanation of how make Tilda pop out of her nestie frame. The first time I did it I lopped off her head but after checking out Rach's tutorial I got it right! Thanks so much!!
I wanted a vintagey feel to this card so I sewed the edges and then distressed them. The flowers are all distressed with Distress Ink. I also wanted to thank Janny for the insipiration for my sentiment. I saw her using the Tim Holtz tickets in this way a wee while ago and loved it. So thanks so much for the inspiration!! So not much on this card I can claim for my own eh??
What is a girl meant to do with all this fantastic talent out in blogland???..can't ignore it. I think we all bounce ideas off each other in the end! Off to cook tea and have a quiet Sat evening...hope the telly is good!

The wonderful weather has made it really hard to drag myself indoors and when I have managed to create I have been making for a mag deadline. Whoooo hooooo!!
Then to add to my troubles my PC has utterly and completely died so off we were down Pc Woeld looking for a bargain. Anyway I am back online..but I have lost ALL my e-mail addresses.
So to all of you who contact me by e-mail can just drop me a line to say 'Hi' and I will then have your address again. Thanks a bunch!!
I have also lost all my photos of my life and cards..so thankfully my best ones are also on facebook and my cards are on my blog! So not such an emergency.
Anyway, mag stuff will be finished tonight and then I hope normal services will resume :)
