Sketch N Stash #152

Morning all, time for another sketch from us here at Sketch N Stash where this time we are being sponsored by:

I have used A Day For Daisies 'Vintage Slip' image for my card  it was coloured with Promarkers and I designed the rest of it in 'Serif Craft Artist 2' to match our sketch.
I really need to find time to read up on this software package as I love using it but don't know how to do half the things properly. Why is it that I seemed to have masses more time when I was working than I do now I'm retired?

I hope you can make time to join in with us and take a look at the gorgeous creations from our DT on the challenge blog.

Sketch N Stash #151

Morning all, Sketch N Stash is back again for another challenge using sketches from our archive.
I think I may have taken a few liberties with this one, I moved the corners slightly and did away with one of the embellishments and the sentiment (I'll add that when I need to use the card) but hopefully you can still see the original sketch.

We have two sponsors again this fortnight and they are:
Sparkle N Sprinkle who are offering one winner 4 images of their choice and
Crafty Individuals and they are donating another gorgeous prize from their store to a second winner.

I used the gorgeous 'Pansy Ring' image from Sparkle N Sprinkle for my card, together with HOTP papers and Die-Namic corner and Spellbinder rectangle dies.

We'd love you to join in with us (and maybe win one of these prizes)
Pop over to the challenge blog and just take a look at the inspiration offered by our gorgeous DT cards.

Teenage Birthdays

Morning all, I thought I'd pop in and share a card that I made for a family birthday. Francesca is 14 and a really 'girly' girl so I thought this image from Mo Manning was just perfect for her birthday, it's called 'Roxy'
I really don't know how I'd survive making teenage cards if it wasn't for Mo's fabulous images, she captures this awkward age so well.

I've coloured this with Promarkers and also used the MS butterfly punch and Spellbinders ornate square die, together with lots of sparkle.

At the present time I'm busy trying to get some xmas cards made. Now, those of you who know me will realise what a big deal this is as I HATE making xmas cards, but this year I don't want to have my normal mad rush a week before the day!
I thought I'd try a modern, CAS style this year. We'll see how that goes as I'm not always successful at CAS despite loving the look of everyone else's cards. I'm using some more Mo Manning images for them so I'll pop them on to share once I've completed them.
