Better togther

these cute cats are 'from the heart ' - the paper is a magazine freebie which I've had for a long time , it's very busy and I was sure it would end up in the trash . I used a couple of heart punches and some pearls.

Tuesday Morning Sketches -  335 - I flipped the sketch on its side.

From the Heart - this is a progressive challenge.I love this image but I am tempted to draw on some whiskers.

A little flirty

The image is from Rick St. Dennis and the stamp in the bottom corner is from  lil' stamps.I used  Aquamarkers  and a few sequins from Maria George..

Passion for ProMarkers - week 328 - Fantasy -

We had a visitor in the garden on Sunday  - this Echidna must have been looking for food - the weather has been so very dry for such a long time - we put out the water and he was happy to drink it. He spent all day just sniffing around and disturbing all the ants - he eventually found a dark shady place to sleep .I didn't see him yesterday so he must have gone on his travels.

a little love heart

After struggling with the hot weather for the past few days today is cool , very cool and very cloudy so my pics are taken with a flash and without- not sure which I prefer- the colour is wrong on them both.

The little cat is from Personal Impressions and the hearts are part of a set from Beccy's Place . When I've used kraft before I'm always tempted to use red but so many others colours are a perfect match.

Keeping it simple day 3

Apologies for the pic -the sun is very bright - the left hand side of the card is actually pearly grey.

This is the 3rd  card using the circle and flowers - still keeping it simple but this time a cute little cat from  Sami Designs - sentiment stamp from Stampit and some patterned paper.

SUYP - Cats Only challenge 2 -
Southern Girls -  One for the Girls- I think this would be perfect for a little girl.

Enjoy your weekend.

Keeping it simple day 2

When it comes to card making I'm not sure I will ever find my 'style' but I seem to lean towards the clean and simple . This card uses the same flower circle as yesterdays but this time I changed the sentiment for a butterfly -ribbon instead of twine and I used a different scissor design on the edge paper. I used water colour pencils for the flowers. You don't need a lot of supplies to make pretty cards just a little variation,

Butterfly challenge 45 - X is for Xanthine - a yellow colouring matter found in some plants - so a yellow butterfly plus a little yellow elsewhere.

It's your birthday

We have a new challenge at Let's Craft and Create - challenge 109 - Layers -I have 4 on top of my base card - the flowers have 3 layers.
Just before Christmas  I bought a pack of metallic permanent maker pens from my local supermarket -I used the blue pen instead of using ink on the stamps.I need to carefully go over the R in the word 'your'.

Incy Wincy - White with a splash of colour
Feeling Sketchy -  sketch 136 - It's very hard to see but in the bottom picture you can just see the scallop edging underneath the sentiment.
