Use Washi tape The Male Room

Hi Everyone, the challenge at

now that made things a little difficult for me, I had one roll, I had used the other couple, I bought, in holding my dies to be cut! Well - it has been said that washi didn't stick to paper as much as other sticky tapes! - it does! so I found out, I took care when sticking my dies to card, just to use it up, THEN this challenge came along and I had a small amount on one roll left! What the heck was I to do? Look up my sketches and see what had one line across that I could use with the washi, Yipee! I found one.

Bath Congratulations

Hi Everyone, my card is one I sent to my Great Niece on her Wedding Day, last October, I saw a card on the web similar, looking for ideas, but haven't got a link sorry, as it one of 3 I liked. There is another Bridesmaid card I haven't posted too, maybe in another couple or so of days. Catching up on a few that I would like to share.

the image is from Paulette at Create with TLC 
the image was coloured to match the card, in PS
dies are Tattered Lace
I cut the Congratulations 4 times to add weight.
the border was cut once from gold and once from Kraft,
with the gold being the "shadow"
I layered the image onto gold card
cut a narrow strip of gold 
added a dimensional to hold the strip 
and placed 2 gems on the end
this allowed the towelling to hold,
name strips were done in PS
2 hearts were placed in the bottom corners, of Kraft card.

Bird Beak-ause

Hi Everyone, I have a card for the Outlawz sketch challenge today, using papers and image not used before. I wanted to send a card today, to someone who has a few problems. I have so many digi files, that I decided to start at the bottom! of my files instead of the top, for a change, and came across freebie papers and images and sentiment from Tattered Lace, -  my card was born. The sketch was ideal for my card, so putting together papers and images and a few ribbon images, I had my card quite quickly, no colouring in and quite pretty I think. I hope it cheers her up.

50th Birthday card

Hi Everyone, the front of my card today was cut out on the Cameo, the first time I used my new sketch pens on a card. I also cut the 50 after I had used them, the sentiment maybe a little big, BUT, I am thrilled with the result, the pens even have a shimmer in them. I forgot to adjust the design, so that the cut was just outside the square line it drew. Another lesson learned, I hope.

I first used the pens, then cut the 50 out, I cut the papers, (Sweet Paris, by Trimcraft) to size and used a corner punch on the spotted paper, (I forgot to add a curved corner to the design cut!) The butterfly was added to the design for the background paper and cut 4 times, 2 layers on each layer of the wings - if that makes sense? to add a little weight. I laid the cut onto the rose paper, added a ribbon and a flat bow and the butterfly. I wanted it as flat as possible to post to Belgium for my Niece. I hope she liked it.

Morgan's Artworld new images

Hi Everyone, these are the new images this month from Morgan's Artworld, such beautiful images, they are available at the shop HERE.

Here is my make with Fae 12, the image is coloured in PS, 
I printed on cross hatched card and decided I loved her 
too much to make into a card, so I have framed her and
 she will live in my craft room, OR the hallway,
 not sure yet which one, at the moment I have
 her sitting in front of me in her frame.

Backgrounds by Designs by Brigit
front ivy Hugware no longer available
coloured in PS CS6

This is her before printing onto cross hatched card, 
to make it look painted onto canvas.

50th Anniversary

Hi Everyone, my card today follows the Outlawz sketch challenge. I had another in mind until I saw the freebie this week at Create with TLC I fell in love with the image and made it straght away, it's perfect for the couple as she collects plates and as the image reminds me of Delphware pottery, I went with the blue and white.
coloured in PS with an added 
gradient effect on the background.
