Apple Tree

i'm here to show you another card. this time I've used mostly Impression Obsession dies
from oysterstamps

this isn't a very good photo, i'll try to replace it when the light is better. (its raining again here)
the inspiration for this card came from my friend Abby, she sent me some lovely little white brads so I decided to colour them with pens to make them look like little apples.
(think i'll do cherries next time)
I used I.O dies Fence, bare tree and branch.
the cat is a poppystamps die.
I couldn't bare to through away the small length of fence that I had to snip off so I used it on the ribbon, hmmm is that 'bright' or just 'tight'? lol
right, im off to finish a scrapbook page now. oh I do love crafty days!
thanks for stopping by,

I'm here to show you the card I made today using a lovely JustRite stamp
the stamp is called Fleuriste Newsprint Background stamp.
I've coloured it with copic markers but it really is very easy to colour.
I've used blue and brown cardstock and a blue bow to finish it off. very quick and simple card.
thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday Izzy

Happy Birthday to a special little girl, Izzy.
she was 1 year old yesterday.
Her mummy is my good friend sarah (ss73 on docrafts)
sarah is doing a good job because Izzy is such a happy smiley little girl.
here is the card I made for her
poor photography again sorry.
how can I have such bad photo's when I have such a talented husband?
I really need to talk him into taking my blog photos for me in future. hmm like that's gonna happen! lol
anyway, back to my card,
I used a cute little hanglar image and coloured it with copics.
I also added some glitter to her wings
I love the JustRite banners and Buttons dies and I used the matching stamp set. both from oysterstamps
I was a little worried that this card was too pink but a friend told me there is no such think as 'too' pink.
Izzy had a lovely birthday and I know she will have a great party on Saturday.
Happy first Birthday Izzy!
thanks for stopping by blog.

photograhy card

hi all,
i'm here to show you a card ive made for our niece, she is doing a photography course at Uni so this image seemed perfect.
I used the sentiment dies I got from pink frog, I keep forgetting I've got these. lol
I also used my ms valentines punch, its one of my favorites.
I've used lots of grey copics to colour the image.
this image was in my files on my laptop but I cant remember what site I got it from. if anyone knows could you let me know so I can give the artist credit.
well i'm off now, I've got another card idea in my head that is bursting to get out so I better go and find some papers.
thanks for stopping by,

Another Butterfly

Hi, I'm back with another butterfly card. I got this idea while making the last card.
I have to admit, it was slightly fiddly but I like the finished effect.
I've used cream card again and cut with spellbinders Marvelous Squares, these were layered up using 3D foam.
here is the fiddly part...
I cut the couture creations butterfly twice, one in dark red card and one in script card.
then I used all the tiny pieces of script card into the red one.
I also added some fine glitter to the script card before cutting.
3 little pearls added the finishing touch.
this has to be my favourite butterfly die!

right, im off to finish a card for a very special little's girls 1st birthday.
