Ive had these stamps from Elzybells for quite a while and have been trying to think of a wow card. after a lot of thought i decided i wanted to make a castle card and here it is....... i have made these three cd folders for karla, my sister in law lisa and my mums friend lorraine. they each contain cd's that i have recorded for them off sky plus. The first 2 were made using stamps designed by Janet Roberts over on pink gem designes
I think janets designes are fantastic. she has just introdused Jack Mimies brother, go over to pink gem designes and check them out.

Crafty Muse

I am so naughty i forgot to upload these yesterday (slap on the wrists) I was so busy (working with darling hubby and going to a Paul Weller concert i totally Forgot) then this morning i went to my local craft shop for a demo by Amanda Bateman but she didnt show up. so at last i'm adding my contribution to the crafty muse challenge........

The challeng was to use the colour purple. I was out of my comfort zone on this one as i find purple hard to work with, So i hope you all like the results.
Go and check out crafty muse as Sammi has added a few more designs on there including som boys...

I went blog hopping the other day and came across a class set by crafts by caroline. I love the shape of this card.
The stamps are all sarah kay. The pp are from a case of papers that my darling husband bought me from costco. (i only used scraps)

completed college project

This was our project at college last week. It contains lots of techneques. This will be my parents christmas card this year as i know they will appreciate all the hard work that went into it.
The card was made using 5 A4 pieces of white card as the main structure.

Crafty Muse is now open

Crafty muse is now open. I was very pleased when Sammi asked if i would like to be on her design team. She has set a fortnightly challenge this weeks challenge is..............

"Our first challenge is to use Angelique with flowers ... So we are giving her away as a freebie image so that you can play!"

If you would like to take part hop on over to Crafty Muse and collect your free image.I thought i would give Angelique a little dimension. i took some silk flowers apart cut one of the layers in half and glued them together. i then got some glitter glue and added it to the petals.
I also decorated the inside of the card to match the front of the card.

Dottie black, white with a splash of colour challenge

This week on Dotties World Adele set the challenge

Black, white and a splash of .........COLOUR!!!
I want your creations this week to include one or more of the
Charmed Download images and to be only 3 main colours. Black, white and one colour of your choice. You can use as many tones of grey and of your chosen colour and you can obviously use a skintone and haircolour ( I am feeling generous! LOL )but that's it.

This is what i came up with. Sorry about the photo's i had to put the card together whilst out in dh van. I used the paisly cuttlebug embossing folder ( I did this bit at home) I used one of the fantastic new images designed by louise. you can find this lovely fellow over on charmed cards and crafts I used lots of different shades of grey. and the hint of lime green to colour him in. i used my prisma pencils and sansador.

I hope you like it
