Not Sugar Nellie ;)

I've been going through my xmas stamps and papers - some of my old stamps and craft material is going on ebay.

But I used two of my stamps and some old paper to make this card. Both the pussycat stamp and the tag are coloured using copic markers and the tag is distressed.

Card Challenge No. 3

This is my card for Scrapbook Sisters 3rd card challenge - over the edge. I love this stamp and enjoy making this card its so simple and yet I think its very effective.

On a card blank i've stamped my cat stamp (stamp-it cat's meow) near the edge them cut around the right hand side of the cat.

the happy birthday is a black rub on.

I do use other stamps!

Here is a card I made for a friend. I love this stamp which is again Sugar Nellie, I do use other stamps!! it seems recently my cards have used Sugar Nellie images.

I coloured her in with Copic markers and then the chipboard lettering in the same colour as her paint brush so it looks like she has painted them.

Card Challenge number 2

Scrapbook Sisters have their second card challenge - scalloped circles. Here's my card for the challenge.

The reindeer stamp and xmas writing are papermania. the writing is stamped on black I then used my scalloped punch the circles.

The reindeer are glittered using glitter dust with the bow in gold glitter, the stamp is scalloped shaped so I cut it out before mounting it using 3d pads. I added red velvet ribbon and brad on red reindeer papers matted onto black and then the white card blank.

Scrapbook Sisters Birthday book

A while ago I spent the day at scrapbook sisters for their 5th birthday bash we made a book amougst other great things. This is the finished book I decided to complete it for my mum's birthday. Some of the pics are scanned pics of my mum and dad when they first met and ones of me and my brother. I also made a box to store the box with the papers.


this is where most of my crafting takes place :) (although I do have lots of boxes of papers else were. I occasionally have a little helper.

Thought I would download a photo. I took this pic in Cornwall when we were down that way in June. We caught the bus from St Ives to Zennor then walked the coast path back to St Ives. Was a great walk and we had fantastic weather no dolphins today but we did see seals :).
