Art by Miran Guest spot

Hi Everyone, I am so thrilled and proud to say I have been chosen as
 Guest Designer at Art by Miran  

Here is my card for the challenge, I loved this image "Snowman Kissed" which I won for being chosen as a GD.  I don't know why, but the colours grey and pink came into my mind for this beautiful pair. 

I laid it all out in Photoshop, printed my papers and cut them into shape. I cut the sentiment out with a Tonic oval die and coloured my image with Spectrum Noir markers, I am still getting used to colouring by hand, and hope I have given Mi Ran's image justice. I cut the image out with a Tonic circle die and added snow effect to the little circles around the image.

I used this sketch as
I thought it unusua

Christmas Cross

Hi Everyone, here is a DT card for Deedee's Digis who is sponsoring a challenge at Crafting by Designs with the theme "Getting Ready For Christmas."

I have had this particular kit "Seasonal Crosses" from Deedee a little while but I haven't used it and I don't know why, it really is lovely and for all year around. I used the sentiment from the Wise Men kit.

The image makes a quick card if you want and I made it quick with a simple embossing background, a navy card layer, some glitter glue and a pearl drop, quick and easy, although I'm happy it's quite effective. Get Ready for Christmas

Polar Pals

Hi Everyone, I have a DT post for Deedee's Digis today, this is for the SSW2 Sketch Challenge that Deedee is sponsoring. However before we go to my card and the info, Deedee has a wonderful sale on, now is your chance to grab plenty of images, she is being VERY generous in her offer. 

Now onto my card, this was a great sketch to work with and I had great papers and images to work with from Deedee. I laid it out and coloured the bear and seal in PS, (I used the outline images in the kit) then saved it all as a png file and had my Cameo to print and cut the images. I then 3D'd the bear and seal. I am LOVING that feature. I think the most difficult thing I had to do on this card was get the 4 squares straight when glueing them down. LOL

Hi Everyone, after MANY MANY hours of changing so many settings on my blog I have now reverted to plain ole Blogger, This will mean that you will now be able to comment without joining any other site or blog.  Shame is I have lost ALL comments for the last 10 days. I can put up with that as long as you can all comment now.

Thank you for your patience. It's taken me a long while but I am there.

In case any of you have had the same trouble I am posting a "help" answer from the Google Help forum. I haven't included my replies as I thought this is the information most of you would want if you were in this position.

Hi +Daffodil Cards you need to sign in to Blogger, click your blog name, open the Google+ settings on the left menu, then de-select the option to "Use Google+ comments on this blog". If that doesn't work, the best place to get assistance is the official Blogger help forum:!forum/blogger

+Daffodil Cards you need to have a Google+ Profile connected to Blogger to be able to change that setting. So be sure you are using Google+ with your Blogger account. Once you have disabled Google+ comments, you can then delete your Google+ Profile.

Swinging Snowman

Hi Everyone a quick post of a quickly done card that I made for the Outlawz sketch challenge. I am always struggling to get this done, time goes so very quickly when your having fun doesn't it?

Anyhow, my card was mad with a ready coloured image from Dearie Dolls, I love her work, I don't use them enough. I made the bottom shape in my Cameo and shortened a part of a file from Shirley's Cards, even the photo was taken in a hurry at night, at least it shows the OTT sparkle.

Cardinal birds

Hi Everyone, I was lucky enough to have the digi of the Cardinal birds from Javacardlineart, it's a bird that doesn't come to the UK, so I'm afraid I didn't really have any real knowledge of its colours, I knew it was red and that's all. I looked it up on the web and copied the colours and this is my offering, I also saw that it eats berries and I had just the right paper from Paper Garden Projects.

I coloured the birds in PS and placed elements from PGP's Holiday Home Digital kit behind them, I added DP from the kit and the leaves and berries and circled them in the wreath also from the kit, then finished the sketch layout with DP's and more elements from the kit. I print and cut on the Cameo and layered it all on silver mirror card. I added Tonic Glitter on the berries and mirror gems. I made 3 of them at the same time, I'll send these to cousins in Ohio and Florida, who will know the birds.

Christmas card

Hi everyone, I am so glad to be back creating for Paper Garden Projects, Cathy has been out of designing for a little while and is now back with the most beautiful papers and elements for Christmas, I couldn't wait to get my hands on them, although they aren't just for Christmas! If you go to the link you can even get a wonderful freebie she has there.

Here is my card I laid it out in PS and print and cut on my Cameo, there is a choice in the kit of a border around the elements or not, depending on what you want it for. I used the flowers with the border, to use with the Cameo. I added gems to the berries and the flowers, even the sentiment is included. I am so excited about these papers and elements, they really are beautiful.
