Quiet moments

Hi Everyone, a nice restful card today, I made it for my Niece's husband as he is working in China and I thought he should enjoy the peaceful moments before my Niece and their daughter join him LOL. That's why I chose this sentiment, I am wicked!

Deedee's digis is sponsoring the challenge over at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge  "Add a Sentiment" The image is from the Deedee's Digi kit Lazy Days. For this card instead of using Deedee's ready coloured image I decided to colour it myself in PS (of course.) I'm not clever like you ladies who use such things as pencils or pens LOL. I paper pieced the hammock with the DP included in the kit, which I also used below the image. I used my new Tonic rectangle dies to cut the image and the blue card behind the image. Inspiration for the sketch is, with many thanks, from Cotnob Oh! yes the garden twine represents the hammock rope - I know I'm a bit of an eccentric!

I made the image bigger for the insert and added a verse found on a verse blog, but can't remember where - sorry.

13th birthday card

Hi Everyone, I have a 13th birthday card for you today, I made it for my Great Niece. I got this image a long time ago from Colouring Pages, it's a fab image by Precious Moments.  I decided to go all out with colour, wouldn't you say? LOL.

I laid it all out and coloured it in PS , then printed it out and fussy cut around the image, bunting and butterfly, then cut the 13 and it's background with my Cricut. The digi paper and elements are by Dream4EverDesigns at PixelScrapper

It's time for a new challenge at

 Digitally Sweet Challenges

the Theme is 

Anything Goes

sponsored by  Limited Runs

Today for my card I am using Fence - Butterfly by Limited Runs by our Sponsor this week.

It seems like I am doing lots of different things recently and using "stuff" I haven't used before, today I am using 2 cut files by Krewella Kreations. the first is the gate and the second is the flower included in a card file, both cut on my Cricut. Coloured in PS. I added a freebie tree PS "brush" to write the sentiment on.

I haven't a clue how this came about, but it just did!  Sorry about the photos, with the breeze and the light they just happened, like the card I suppose LOL.

Belated birthday card.

Hi Everyone, I missed a birthday last week so had to make a belated one, I have had this image,  Nell on a Bike, from Beccy for quite a while, I can't remember using it before, but it seemed somehow right for this, me thinking she looks like me LOL. I used the ready coloured image as it matched some digi paper I had downloaded a few days earlier - meant to be or what - I used a sketch to get me going and added "I'm Late" as I thought it better than Belated to suit this image, don't you love her?

The Digi papers are by Haj Designs  Any Beccy's images

Pearl Anniversary card & box

Hi Everyone, my elder brother and his wife have just celebrated their Pearl (30th) Wedding Anniversary.

I wanted to make something completely different to what I usually make, to do this I started by looking through my files and saw a digi rosette and realised I had cut files, never used. That's a start, look for paper and saw this - a card made LOL.

I used Pink Petticoat Elegance digi paper, the rosette is a file by Lettering Delights, the silver is embossed with a Tattered Lace border die, the pearls are from The Range, the sentiment was done in PS. I couldn't think of how else to place it, without retracting from the rosette, but think it looks OK. I cut a heart with 30 in the middle, placed a pearl for the inside. Sometime in the past I saw some cards where the "empty space" had been filled with embossed lines so did it on this one. some pearls on top of them voila!

 For the box I placed the PP paper and added the pearls to the flowers as for the card, I made a tag in PS with a flower which to me matched the paper.
