Owls card.

Hi Everyone, a little late with my post, it's for World Card Making Day, but I scheduled another instead funnily also by TLC, so here is another post today. It's an Owl image given by Paulette at Create with TLC I think these are really strong owls and had to be for a masculine card, I decided to use Autumn colours, it's the phase I'm in LOL. I designed and coloured in PS, printed out, layered and added mini leaves from Papermania punches. (again), the sentiment jumped out of my mind while I was colouring the owls.

Acorn Fairy

 Hi Everyone, an Autumn card today, which I made with freebies from Create with TLC, Paulette is very generous with her images there are also many available to buy.

The Acorn Fairy was a freebie from last week, the ready coloured print background (acorns and leaves) "Autumn Colours in Nature" was from last year. It was lovely to be able to combine the two images. I  designed the card and coloured the fairy in PS, 3D'd the Fairy image, added lots of glitter, 3D gloss for the acorns in the image, I used Papermania punches for the leaves and coloured them with my Spectrum Noirs. I added the leaves to the left side of the card so that they would mix with the falling leaves on the paper.

This is one of those cards I am thrilled with, so much so, I have put it into a box frame for my craft room, especially for the Autumn Season. The photo taken in the evening sun, even has an Autumn cast to it. The framed photo was taken in a North room so in a way the colour is more realistic.

I went for a walk the other morning in this Indian Summer we have been having and decided to take a few early Autumn images.

DSC October

It's time for the Monthly challenge at

the Theme is 

Feeling Fruity

sponsored by  Lacy Sunshine

Here is my "Feeling Fruity", I felt I needed to do a recipe with "Apple Cider" by Lacy Sunshine, so I looked up a recipe which included both and here it is, the web page it comes from is on the left of the recipe. The note pad is for me, as hubby does 90% of the cooking LOL. I designed and coloured it all in PS. It's the first time I have done a nose that I am pleased with! I'm quite pleased with my apple too, I spent quite a long time on it, as it looked so dreadful to start. Hope you can make the recipe, I haven't - YET! so can't tell you how it tastes, but it sounds scrumptious.

Autumn Colours

Hello Everyone, my DT project today, is for Deedee's Digis sponsored challenge at Creative Moments, with the theme being Fall Colours. Here is my offering, the fabulous scarecrow from Deedee's Pumpkin Patch kit. I printed the image, to which I had added sky and clouds, cut it to fit the bag, which I had cut on the Cameo, the leaves are punched out. With the obligatory choccies inside the bag yum yum!

Christmas Card

Hi Everyone, I had forgotten it was Tuesday and I hadn't posted my Outlawz Challenge sketch this week, so here it is a bit OTT, but that's what some Christmas cards are, aren't they? The DP and elements's are from the Audrey J Roberts "Holly" kit. I added 3D gloss to the bells, glitter to the drop ornaments inside the frames and red pearl drops to the red berries on the corner embellishment, and added to gold paper.

Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone, my DT card for Deedee's Digis today is for the sponsored challenge at Clear it Out. The theme for the challenge is Sympathy with embossing. My card has a butterfly from the "Fluttering By " kit by Deedee, I used a freebie embossing folder which was on a magazine, which I haven't used and have had for an absolute age. The orange ribbon is something I don't use often either. I decided to use the colours of the butterfly for the background paper and ribbon.

Bottle box

Hi Everyone, I have something slightly different today, Hubby's cousin was celebrating their 50th Anniversary. I made a card similar to one I made recently Here, then decided to look for a package for a bottle, I found it on  My SVG HUT what was great is that you can go to her Blog and see full instruction and easy to follow too, IF you follow each step, of course me being me missed one step of doing the hinge on the lid, it still worked though, so no cutting out more card, which was just as well as we were visiting them the next day and I had used All the card - whew!

I used DP from the same digi kit as the card, which matched up well, used some dies to finish off. I was really quite pleased. The ribbon is also included in the file and is used as a band around the box, but in my rush I glued it to the lid, in the front, so had to open it to photo, no problem though, as it is easy to open and close. I added a pearl heart, coloured gold with my Spectrum Noir marker. The 50 was cut on my Cameo. I loved the fact the papers fitted so perfectly, it's something I haven't done a lot of. The papers were cut for the inside too, but as I had missed a step, it would have made it too messy to glue them inside. All in all, I shall be making more of these, NOT missing the step and not in so much of a rush. At the end of all that they were impressed with it and thrilled I had made it for them, so all in all a good result. Enough waffle I hear you cry, here it is - at last!
