Haven't posted in a while, haven't had chance to make a card for a while though! Keep starting them and haven't finished not one! On the other hand been having a go with my new Promarkers. Not very good but getting better. Here is my attempt at colouring the freebie Humphrey stamp from Papercraft Essentials.

I'm quite proud of it really, it doesn't look too bad lol! Just had a bit of a mistake at the bottom of his coat which ruined the whole thing. Arrrrrggggghhhhh!!! Start again :)

On a different note, I was having a nosy over at Creative Craft Challenges at their current challenge. It is a sketch, the first one they have done apparently. I love following sketches as I usually mess about for ages trying to decide on the best layout!! Makes it easier if someone else has decided that part, just have to debate over what papers to use lol! The DT member Sandra mentioned she has some candy over on her blog Sandra's Crafty Corner so I popped on over to have a look. It is a fantastic opportunity as she even has some sponsors. Have entered and popped her pic on my sidebar for everyone else to have a look!

Hopefully back soon with a card lol xx

Digi My World Blog Candy

Been following a fab blog called Digi My World for a while now and only just realised they do a weekly blog candy lol! They do a weekly freebie digital stamp following each letter of the alphabet and there are loads of things to chose from in their store.

New Job Card

Wow, how fast has the last week flew by? Come to think of it, the last few months has flew past like you wouldn't believe. Before we know it, it will be christmas. Yay, my favourite time of the year! :)

Having a browse round blog land this morning, (something that I have not been doing for a while) and saw the new challenge blog has begun over at Cutie Pie Challenge Blog. I was even lucky enough to be chosen for some of their lovely blog candy! This will be a blog I will visit very often I think :)

My dad recently got offered a new job so I made a card for him as I've never done a new job card before. I have only finished it today but he started this morning lol! Don't think he will mind anyway :) Here it is

The bear is from the xmas kit free with Papercraft Inspirations this month. The backing papers are Forever Friends too but came with a decoupage set I had ages ago. Some peel offs and card candi and I think it looks very cute. I always have problems with cards for men as I seem to make them a bit too cute but I think it works here. I would like to enter my card into the foloowing challenges;

Starting school

Well its been a while since I last posted, my blog was feeling a bit neglected lol! I actually finished making a card for my big girlie who started school this morning. She looked soooo grown up in her uniform! Can't believe she is 4 in a couple of months, amazing how fast time flies! Here she is looking very smart
all she was worried about is that she had new shoes! Showed them to everyone on the way to the school, then showed them to us as she came with the front all scuffed! The card I made had to be very pretty and colourful which sums Phoebe up lol! This is what I came up with
I have used the Honey and Hugs papers I bought recently from a friend on Facebook. I used the same Honey and Hugs character as the decoupage but printed it from the Docrafts Favourites CD I bought a few weeks ago. Used a border punch to cut out the stars pattern down the sides of the yellow card and added some card candi to each corner. Had to start using some of the new stuff I have bought recently as I couldn't justify to hubbie buying anymore til I used some up lol! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
