Valentine Cards

Morning all,
I can now post pictures of the Valentine cards I made for my sons' partners.

Two very different commissions, one wanted something cute "'cos I'm cute!" The other wanted something that would suit the tastes of his girlfriend, suffice to say her likes are different to the normal 'lovey' images.
Can you guess which is which? ha ha!

Love and hugs to all those in need of them.

All Creatures Great and Small

Hi peeps,

Thought I'd enter this card for the Fab 'n' Funky challenge of 'All creatures Great and Small'. I actually made this a while back but never posted it and thought it fitted the bill.

The raven is actually made using the words from Poe's famous poem, how brilliant is that! Perfect for a certain lady who happens to be a massive Poe and Raven fan. I also used my cute Joy crafts 'Vintage Flourish Birds' die and  My Mind's Eye 'Lost and Found' papers on this.

Love and hugs to all those in need,

Cardmaking with Promarkers

Hi peeps,
Long time no see (I know, my bad!)
I just felt in the mood for some crafting, which is very unlike me recently so I thought I'd celebrate by entering a couple of challenges.

I'm entering this for:
Passion for ProMarkers - Show us your favourites.
Well these fabulous ladies from Artstamps are certainly my faves, I bought loads of these as they are perfect for girlfriend cards (for ladies of my age anyway)
I love ProMarkers Challenge - Anything goes.
I absolutely DO love ProMarkers. Colouring brilliant digis with these is half the joy of cardmaking for me.

I really seem to have lost my mojo for cardmaking since moving up here and it totally died once the Sketch N Stash challenge blog closed.  However, it seems there is a craft club starting up in our little village in March and I've signed up to it. I'm really hoping that joining in with fellow crafters will inspire me to start crafting again as I used to enjoy it so much. I'm also hoping to learn new skills and start scrapbooking properly. Who knows, I may even be able to blog regularly like I once used to.

Love and hugs to all those in need,
