Shaping up @ MAWTT

Good Morning,

Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather we are having at the moment, I know I am. Can't wait to start cooking on the BBQ, well actually I sit and watch my Son Matthew do the cooking, he loves it.

The lovely Kelly is hosting the challenge this week at 
and she is wanting to see you shape up, so anything except squares

This is how I shaped up:

This is the card I made for Matthew's birthday that is coming up in May. He is a X box fan, not that he gets to play as often as he would like since Harvey (my gorgeous little Grandson) was born over a year ago now. How quick that time has gone. I used a free cut file from Birds cards which I cut on the cameo. The buttons were edged in a silver wax and mounted on foam to give a bit of dimension. The sentiment is computer generated and again cut to shape on the cameo.

I hope you will come and join in this week's challenge and visit all my teamies to see how they have shaped up!

Bye Bye Doc

Good Morning,

Something a little different from me this morning. 
I was asked by a friend to make her a card to give to her GP who is retiring. 

Not much to say about it really. All pieces were cut on the silhouette, image was printed and cut. The backing papers were printed from CC barkley CD. A mixture of brads, buttons & gems were added to the center of the stars for a bit of colour.

Ladybird, Ladybird

Good Afternoon,

I hope you had a good weekend and  have a great week ahead.
My weekend was very busy, family visiting Saturday and Harvey came to spend the day with us on Sunday while Mummy was working and Daddy was having a bit of me time.
It's a good job I had my DT card made for the new challenge starting today over at 
The theme this fortnight is
Lets Get Krafty
I cut my kraft card base on my Cameo using a file from Birds Cards

This fortnight Imagine That are kindly sponsoring the challenge and they gave the DT some digi's to use on their creations. I have used Ladybug Friends image & sentiment which I print & cut on the cameo then used watercolour pencils to colour the image in adding some stickles for a bit of glitz. The kraft card butterflies were also cut on the cameo and were covered with stickles & bodies added using cosmic shimmer gold coloured glue.

Hop on over to see what else has been created by my teamies with this and other images from this week's sponsor here. If you enjoy using kraft why not come and join in the challenge.

Good Evening,

Bit late with my post tonight because I've been having a new broadband modem installed. Hopefully it will now be faster and stay connected, I was fed up of turning the power off to reconnect. I am hoping that it will make visiting all your lovely blogs easier/quicker.

I'm here this evening to share my DT card with you for the new challenge starting over at 

This fortnights sponsor  is Zuri Artsy Craftsy

They are offering one lucky winner 3 digis from their shop!

Here is the sketch we have for you to use for this challenge

This is what I did using the sketch using an image from the sponsor

I decided to make an easel card, not sure why because I do find them difficult to photograph.
Image - Maia from Zuri Artsy Craftsy
Papers - Back to basics IV
Sentiment - Computer generated
The image and sentiment shape was glittered round the edge with Pee wee glitter.
The image was coloured with markers and frantage

Have a lovely weekend!

Wild Flowers

Good Morning,

When I was at the NEC recently I picked up a LOTV pre coloured pad of floral images.
I used one of the images to make today's card, how beautiful is this image!

I teamed it up with a digi printed paper from the Barkley CD. The sentiment is a stamp from Crafters Companion. All layers have been matted onto a bright pink card which is a card I've had for a long time but never been brave enough to use. However I must say I was quite pleased with the outcome and made another one using a different image which I sent to my blogging buddy and teamie Sue for her birthday.

Have a lovely day

Love Spring Time

Good Afternoon,

It's Monday which means there's a new challenge starting over at 
This week's challenge is being sponsored by the fabulous 
All Dressed up Challenge blog

I took the opportunity  to use this challenge to make a card for my Granddaughter's birthday which is on Easter Sunday and the challenge theme suits her to the ground:
Ribbon/Lace & Pearls
all things so girly which is Alisha

I used an image from this week's sponsor called 'Love Spring Time' and can be found here. I printed it and cut it using my Cameo, cutting out an extra bow for her hair. I used markers and a spot of chalk to colour the image, using the blender pen to bleach out the spots on the butterfly. I used all three items in this week's challenge theme, pleating the ribbon before adding over the lace. The digi papers are from Nit Wits and  the Barkley CD. 

Hop on over to the challenge blog to see what fab creations the talented team have made.

Thank you for visiting my blog today
Have a Great Day!
I would like to enter:

All dressed up challenge - Anything goes

Good Evening,

Pleased to report the plumber returned, fitted my taps but refused to change the radiator. However he did a quick clean up with a wire brush round the valve and sealed it with a bit of tape, job done without the big bill. Can you believe it? I couldn't I was expecting to get stung.

Onto the new challenge starting over at Friday Sketch Challenge with this super sketch to work with 

Here's what I did with the sketch:

I had a little play with my new digikit CD from Serif -Victoria Nelson's Occasions Collection
The backing papers were printed from the Crafters Companion Barkley CD and a piece of dainty dots embossed paper. The flowers are a mixture of punched, die cut and cameo cut.

Have a good evening!

With Love Mouse

Good Afternoon,

Just had the 4th plumber round to look at some work I need doing. They keep looking and say they'll get back to me with a price but it never happens, I never hear from them again. The chappie that's been today is coming back in the morning to do the most urgent job, a dripping kitchen tap that is driving me mad.

I thought I would share a card with you today that I made very quickly (as I nearly forgot) for a friends birthday. I had the Mouse with Love digi from Di's Digi's already coloured up using markers, it's well worth a look she has a great selection of fab images.

The backing paper was printed from the Camden Town CD.
The card was embossed with a cuttlebug folder.
The flowers and flousish were die cut/punched.

Have a great day in the sunshine!
