Tattered Lace pindot and plain circle die 
All layered onto black paper
coloured digitally.

When I had my birthday my Brother & Sil came for a few days and as she and I are "into" cards and the Cameo, we "play" whenever they visit, SiL and I learn from each other and this time it was about the Cameo. We did quite a few things and I shall add them when I remember LOL.

Here is a votive candle holder that I etched with
 a vinyl stencil cut out on the Cameo and the effect when lit.

Party 'til the cows come home!

Hi Everyone, Yep! that's the theme of my card today, which is for my God Son, I know he'll appreciate it. It took ages to choose an image, in the end I chose an image that I had in 2007, talk about digging deep! I also made it for the Outlawz Sketch challenge.

Spring Window

Hi Everyone, My card today is for the Outlawz Progressive Challenge. Such a pretty image to work with.

I digitally coloured the image by Beccy with colours from -
DP's and beads scatter by NibblesScribbles
I'm owning up to the top DP torn digitally, but then cut by hand.
Brick overlay by DigiDewi, I saw a card
using similar, and thought I would case it.
I found the sentiment online.
Added Tonic Pearl Drops to each flower centre

Sweet as Honey

Hi Everyone, I am slowly getting back to normal, but it has meant a lot of things not done as I would want here, anyhow, I'll try and catch up with you soon.

My card today is for the Outlawz Challenge which ended March 14th! Why did I leave it 'til now to post it? Well I made it for thank you cards for gifts received for my birthday, so didn't want to blog it, as I know a few people who will receive one look at my blog and I didn't want them to see it before hand. I entered the sketch challenge without posting it, promising to do it ASAP and I was thrilled to be Showcased for it at The Outlawz Sketch Challenge.

Anyhow, here it is.
I followed the sketch
DP's and images PC Hugware, sadly no longer available.
All cut and layered with honey jars 3D
The font "Honey Bee" is one I have just added from
the font on the site had a honey effect and I thought, silly me, it would be like that when I wrote it, but it didn't.
 I didn't know how to make it that way so emailed the site, 
got a quick reply and instructions on how to make it look like honey, 
now that is what I call Customer Service.
The only thing is it took me rather a long time, especially as I hadn't done anything like it before, you "may" see it again somehow.
 I'm happy with the result though.

WOOD and vinyl!

Hi Everyone, I have really BIG apologies to say to everyone for not commenting or even blogging! It was all down to me celebrating 3 score years and 10 or in modern language my 70th birthday on the 9th. We had my Brother and SiL to visit and a LOT went on, I haven't had time to do anything, with visitors each day it seems, it has been lovely to see everyone. I'll let you know in another post what went on, as this is supposed to be a DT post, but it is late again. Shame on me.

Anyhow on to my make, NOT a card, but something I saw on the web, that made me think about my hubby and how clever he is. So my make for the

The theme is use stash and wood! So wood from hubby's stash, cut to size.
I made up the sign from tool images, I cut the vinyl with
 the Cameo and laid it onto the wood
 hubby screwed it to the side door of the garage.
Then sprayed with 3 layers of varnish, I think that should be enough! 
It was getting late so not a good photo as it was in the 
shade, with only the top right corner in the sun.
Glad to say he is thrilled with it.
