Hi Everyone, the Male Room challenge today is

What a vast subject of things I could have done with the theme of Music. I always search my files before searching anywhere else and I found just the the image and sentiment I could use. They are both from Create with TLC and fit so well together, I thought.

I coloured the image faces only, in PS, then printed the image and sentiment out with the papers, the art deco background, I thought I knew where it was from, then found I hadn't identified it, so if anyone knows I'll add the info. I embossed it with a Die'sire music EF, the striped paper is from a Debbie Moore Art Deco CD. I layered them with black paper and added black Dovecraft 3D drops. Can you feel the music?

Thought I would show you the sunsets we had the other night after a miserable dark wet day, certainly didn't expect colour and it was only at the end of the mountain, nowhere else, Spooky?

and this was the night before on the 24th August, much better.

A Daffodil card

Hi Everyone. Yes! a Daffodil card, wrong season. Why? because I saw this card by Darcy and it is linked to an Outlawz challenge. Well I HAD to join didn't I?

I used a "quick page! for the background and 2 half doily dies to place the Cameo cut daffodil on to. I have had the daffodil file for a long while and hadn't got around to using it, you know how it is. I then added a gold Uniball gold glitter pen around part of the petals.

Now to this Season on the 27th Aug, this sky appeared to us, I have never seen a sky around here like this so had to take photos of it, Yep! I know I am mad for skies, love the effects so different all the time. The last 3 are closeups of the cloud formation. The last one includes some collard doves cuddling up together Aw!

Hi Everyone, I have an engagement card for you today, my next door neighbour asked if I would do another 2 engagement cards, for another of her Grandson's, this time they were getting engaged in Corfu, Greece. She wanted on of them exactly like the last one I made for her other Grandson, but without the New York theme here. Which I did no problem, won't show it as it's near enough the same!

The card had to represent Greece and she brought me a tea towel from Greece, to show me what she wanted. It had black olives and the Greek Keys pattern. So that is what I went with and I also went with a Greek looking font "Achilles" for this one and put the Corfu map behind the images. I fussy cut the olives and leaves, for some reason Cameo was offsetting the cut, so had to do it the hard way! I'm glad to say she loved them both.

This is the insert before printing.

Christmas card

Hi Everyone, YEP! a Christmas card, but first I have to welcome my new followers, I hope you enjoy your stay with me, thank you for your interest in my work.

Now onto my card, I followed the Outlawz Sketch Challenge and after another search of my files to see what I had to fit in, I came across these papers and images from Aveziur on the Sept2012BlogHop at Digital Scrapbook Studio Designs and as I haven't done many Christmas cards, in fact I think it's 3 so far, I decided to do this card.

I laid it out in PS and printed the layers adding the check paper to black paper. I 3D'd the bunting and the Santa, added 2 die cut snowflakes by Die'sire, and added Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels.

Wild Roses

Hi Everyone my offering today is the August FB group freebie at Morgan's Art World. Makes me think of the hedgerows where they are about to offer their Autumn fruit and the wild rose being one of them. It's also available HERE

I coloured it in PS then sent it over to the Cameo to cut it out in an oval, it was the wrong shape for my dies! I layered it onto card which had been embossed with Memory Keepers flower dies, they were stuck onto the background layer, a couple of gems and some Uniball gold pen into the centre of the flowers and it was done. Oh! yeah! it was that simple! apart from the colouring LOL.

Shaped card

Hi Everyone, my post today is of a shaped card, I had from Shirley's Cards HERE she gives lots of freebies away, but I bought this, I thought it so lovely and a nice size too 175mm  x 120 mm or 7 x 5ish inches closed. It was VERY easy to cut out, even for me with my very old mat and blade LOL. I decided to make it in white and add a little bling. It came with a birthday sentiment, but I added a 2 layer die cut, a sparkly net ribbon and mirror mosaic tiles.

So a simple card for me today, but I am pleased with it, next time a little colour as Shirley has done me thinks.

Bike thanks

Hi Everyone, well I think I am getting back to normal now after all that happened last week! who would think a few days away would cause so much upheaval in time?

My card today is for the Digistamps4joy FB progressive challenge. A really great image, that would have been wonderful for a scrapbook page IF! I had taken photos of all those wonderful wheat fields last week. Anyhow, I decided to make a tag card. I laid it out and coloured it in PS and sent it to the Cameo to cut. Then added a die cut bike free from a magazine last month which I coloured with SN markers, and a Die'sire thank you die. I added the bike, as I could see someone riding through the countryside alongside the fields, I'm such a romantic LOL.
