My First Candle

I was so impressed with Maria's candles when I visited her blog that I had to have a go myself. I have tried one or two and thought I would show this one. My daughter loved this project too and she has made a lovely candle in a gift bag. I will try and add a photo tomorrow

Friday Sketchers Challenge 23

This is my entry for Friday Sketchers Challenge 23. I loved the sketch and will use it again and again. I have used a double sided paper from Imaginisce. Its called Baby Powder - Oopsie Daisy. I have covered the square base card with one side of the paper and cut 2 half circle shapes from the other side. The Sarah Kay image is coloured with Sakura Glaze pens and inktense pencils. I have used an Anita's sticky ribbon along the bottom. The oval is cut from Nesties with Cuttlebug and I have stamped Happy Day on it with a mini greeting from Inkadinkado clear stamp set - Lots o' Pots. This is the first Sarah Kay image I have done and I am quite pleased with the way the card has turned out.

This is a card I have made for my friends daughters 1st birthday and also as my entry to Challenge #20 on A Spoonful of Sugar. The challenge this week is 'Pink and Green'. This is the first girly card I have made, usually it is blues and greens, and I am quite pleased with the way it has turned out, apart from when I got carried away with the glitter! Still not sure if I am going to add a number 1 to it yet. We'll see.

I covered a square base card with DCWV Nanas Kids paper and then I added some pink stickles to the centre of each flower on the paper. Next, I stamped the forever friends image and coloured with my usual inktense pencils. I layered this onto pink then green card and added to side of base card with foam pads. The flower and banner are from a K&Co sticker pack. The flower has been outlined in pink and green stickles and I have printed 'Happy Birthday' message on banner. The corners of the image are stickers also and the dots on them have been stickled too. I have added a pink ribbon with bow to finish.

Hello everyone. This card was one I made for Cute Card Thursday challenge but I never got round to taking the photo. Anyway, never mind, I have stamped, once again, Elzybells little mouse and coloured with inktense pencils. I added crystal stickles to the fur on his santa hat and I mounted him onto red card and rounded the corners off. The 'Night before Chrismas' was stamped in black and mounted the same way. I put forever friends holly paper on base cardand added image. Next, I tied some green ribbon in a bow at the top and placed the verse on foam pads to look like it was hanging from the bow.

I am hoping to take part in some challenges but that will depend on how long Steven, 2, decides to sleep for.



Nikki has some lovely blog candy. Great cards to look at too so pop over for a peek and your chance to win.

Tilda & co Challenge

This card is for the Tilda & Co challenge 38 which is a sketch challenge. Since I didn't have a lot of time, this is a very quick card. Covered base card with some blue snowflake/star paper (not sure which). Coloured tilda image with inktense pencils and mounted onto blue card and paper which were cut with oval nesties in my cuttlebug. Tied some blue organza ribbon down the side to finish off.

Challenge Combo


I am at last adding some of my own cards and taking part in a couple of challenges. Ive been meaning to do this for a long time but I am either too busy with the kids or too busy being nosy at everybodys blogs.

This card is for the Sketch Saturday Challenge #18 and also for the Stamp Something Challenge.
You will have to try and ignore my terrible photography skills. I covered my base card with Holiday Joy Mini Dots by Paper Adventures. I used Elzybells stamped mouse in hat image (not sure of proper name for this one) and coloured in with inktense pencils and water brushed. I added some crystal stickles and them layered onto red card. I then done the same for the small images at the bottom which are a mini Christmas pud and an Anitas greeting. I finished of with some red organza ribbon.
