Cant believe it's been a week since I last posted!! I have had a busy week :0) Last weekend was my cardmaking demo at a local craft shop, it went very well and everyone seemed to enjoy it! and then Sunday we had a fun day together visiting the Blair Atholl Highland Games and walking around the beautiful castle gardens. DS loved the adventure playground too!! (So did Daddy)
You can see the Atholl Highlanders marching around the arena for the opening ceremony, Europe's only private army! To the right of the photo you can just see the cannon which gave an almighty bang!!!!
I have uploaded a few photos for you :0) Click on them for a better view!

Onto my card!! A 2 in 1 challenge card, I have used the yummy colour combo of lemon, pink and chocolate from the Colour Create blog along with the fab sketch #8 from Stamp With Fun.

This gorgeous Sugar Nellie image I received from Eva, thanks Eva!! and I coloured her with promarkers. The papers are BG 2 Scoops. I punched the flowers and butterflies to finish :0)

Animal Antics!!

Two cards for this week's challenge from PapertakeWeekly! The challenge is 'Animal Antics' use a animal somewhere on your creation! I have used this very cute Daisy Mouse from Funstamps.

The papers are for the autumn colours one - Bo Bunny and the purple card - Papermania Spring Burst. Both images have been coloured with promarkers and I have used Martha Stewart punches on both too!

I have made these cards for my local craft shop in Keith, Moray where I will be doing an all day demo using this cute stamp from Funstamps amongst others. If you are in the Moray area why not pop in to MitchBish Crafts, Keith on Saturday 23rd May. Be gentle with me though as this will be my 1st ever demonstration and I'm quite nervous!!!

Sketch and Stash #9...

My card for this fortnight's Sketch and Stash challenge. There's a new one tomorrow!!

I have used a new Sugar Nellie stamp called 'Fragile Beauty'. I have coloured with promarkers and the papers are K & Co. Great sketch, very versatile x

I have also received an award (see sidebar) from friend and fellow blogger Andie - thanks Andie x

Andie always leaves me lovely comments which I really appreciate :0) Check out Andie's blog HERE, she has some gorgeous cards to browse through.

And lastly expect to see some stitching on future cards soon! I picked up a Janome Sew Mini machine yesterday at a car boot sale for £4!!! Bargain!! It's a great little machine, perfect size for using on my cards and wont take up too much room! I'll have to practise 1st though :)

Hope everyone's having a lovely weekend, thanks for looking x

Country Garden...

A card for 2 challenges that were made for each other!! I have used sketch #50 by Bea from the Friday Sketchers blog, just in time I hope! along with this week's challenge from the 'Stamp with Fun' blog which is to use a tall card :0)

I have'nt made a tall card for ages so it was good to dig out the card from the bottom of the box!

I have used a new Sugar Nellie stamp from the Country Cousins range at Funkykits coloured with promarkers. Papers are from a K & Co pad and SU ribbon. The sentiment is part of a Cosmo Cricket QVC TSV.

Colour Create & Sunday Sketch and Stamp...

A combined challenge card from me again today :0) I was asked to make a card for a 9 year old who loves reading so had to go for this Whiff Of Joy image. I have used the colour combo from Colour Create of chocolate, red and cream along with sketch #1 from Sunday Sketch & Stamp, a new challenge blog which has friend and fellow blogger Ger on the DT :0)

The sketch uses an oval but as I dont have any ovals I used my new nestie label dies instead. The image is coloured with prisma's and the papers are a mix of BoBunny and SU. I added the buttons instead of flowers as they were the perfect colours for the challenge :0)

I have even managed to personalise the card and keep to the sketch, so I am pleased with the card and I hope Fiona likes it too!!

Hi There Tilda....

I have used this gorgeous Tilda again!! for a magnolia challenge over on the Docrafts forum. The challenge was to use a lilac/lime colour combo and to include a sentiment, 3 buttons and some bling! I think I covered it all :0)

I have coloured Tilda with promarkers and the papers are a mix of Making Memories and K & Co. The sentiment is a self adhesive woven label from MM I have had for years!!

I have used a Woodware butterfly punch and added stickles and gems for the bling.
