Have a lovely day

Yep its another play from me  for Sketch Saturday and the sponsor for them this week is Simon Says Stamp and they will be the lucky winner a $25 voucher to use on their site.

At the moment I am so in very love with the Meadow bears from crafters companion so they are appearing on a lot of my cards .
So to make my card I used some core'dations , card stock and topper oh and the message all from the Hunkdoray Meadow Bears kits from crafters companion I also used my E-craft which is from them to cut everything out on and finally some lace from my stash and some flowers from docrafts.

A bit of a flourish

Well its all about the flourish at Less Is More but Mandi and Chrissie nearly had me thinking I could nt take part as they wanted it one layer , knew I had lots of flourish die cuts but no stamps for the one layer , but then I remember I had a embossing folder with a flourish on it , so Yay I could join in .

Sorry for a Xmas one but it just spoke it to me
I used my Darcie embossing folder from crafters companion , highlighted it with some Pm's and then uses a Hero Arts stamp inked with Tim Holtz Peeled paint distress ink , I have to admit I did smudge the image so did some doodling round it to cover it up and think it turned out OK.

And you be pleased to see another card with no Xmas to it lol
But this time I kept the embossing free from colour well expect from some bling which is from docrafts and yet again another Hero Arts stamp and Tim Holtz Walnut stain distress ink .

Thank you for looking x

sunshine puppy

Well it would be nice if we could see some sunshine but I guess having it as the theme from Totally Gorjuss will have to do unless I win the lottery and go for a nice hot holiday lol.
They also have a very hot sponsor for the week well I think their hot as always seem to be spending money with them and its the great Crafters Companion who will give the winner a £10 voucher.

Well for my card I got the idea of using yellow on my card for the sunshine and also the puppy lazing in the sun spoke to me .

To make my card I used
backing paper from my stash , some core'dations , e-craft and large scalloped dies for the cutting out all from crafters companion and finally my topper which is from a old b day card also cut using the spellbinder die.

icy blues

So its another picture theme for us from Winter Wonderland so we could chose colours from it or anything else from it that gave us ideas. And the sponsor for the week is Crimson Cloud who will give the winner this great stamp
For my card I went with the blues , sliver and white from the picture or icy blues as my title says lol
Mind you with how the weather has been its feels rather icy in the air , even had the heating on yesterday so much for flaming June lol.
To make my card
I used a topper from Kanban which I have had yonks so don;t think the kit is done any more, some peel off's from my stash and some pearls from the craft barn .

The top of the box I used a lace Dollie from the local Charity shop and a flower I made with the help of a spellbinder die , core'dations yet again from crafters companion and a flower from WOC in the middle and finally some Tim Holtz Distress ink to give a shabby look to it all.

The rest of the pictures are to show things off better. Oh forgot to say the paper is from my stash and everything was glued on to the box using a glue gun.

Popcorn in love

So this time we had a choice of 2 themes at Crafty Creations Challenge and that was to have a wedding or Anniversary on our cards. I went with the Anniversary part of the theme as work is running low on them.

To make my card I used a 8x8 card base , then some paper and topper from the popcorn romance Cd from crafters companion , so mirri card from do craft and some red card from the paper mill , the message was done on my lappy and finally some ribbon down the side which as from fantastic ribbon.

Bear with pearls

This month at CC Monthly Challenge they wanted us to go all out on our embellishments , so of course I though Whooo Hoo as so love using pretty things on cards , before I go off and bore you I will get on and say that the wonderful Sara will give the lucky winner a £30 voucher to use on her site .

I am so in love with the Meadow bears at the moment they seem to be on every other card I do.

Well my card was made using the card from the every day Humphrey card kit which I cut on my GC using a large scalloped die , then I added the decoupage from Meadow bears kit all from crafters companion , then for my embellishments I used a message from my stash which I coloured with a pro marker to blend in with blue them , a border die yet again from crafters companion cut on some card from the paper mill and some pearls to finish which were from the craft barn and yet again coloured to go with my blue theme.
