Leaves are cut on my Cougar and coloured with ProMarkers.

George the Chef

Needed to do a birthday card for my Brother in Law as my Sister ordered one from me. He is a great chef so thought this would fit the bill. I also noticed that Charmed Cards and Crafts were running a few competitions and that this card would qualify for two of them so decided to enter it. The first one is in the form of Blog Candy with a twist ..... and the second is one of a few competition catagories and I am entering this in the Birthday Card one.

Papers are Pink Petticoat, Image is from the George At Work collection from Charmed Cards and Craft, coloured with ProMarkers. Corners made using a Cuttlebug die and sentiment was computer generated. Ribbon and gems from stash.

Engagement card for my Son

I made this a week or so ago but couldn't post it as they hadn't received it, lol.

They were delighted with it I am pleased to say. It took me a long time to get my head around it as I wanted it to look special.
Papers are Papermania but can't remember the name of the collection now.
Image coloured with Promarkers but it looked brighter than my photo shows, don't know why.
Border cut on my Cougar out of dark brown Bazzil card.
Lace and pins from Tabbycrafts.
Sentiments done on computer.
Flowers, leaves etc from stash.

A new Flower Bowl Card

This is a new version of the Flower Bowl card. I have used the same flowers etc obviously in different colours, lol, but have added a lace lattice to the front of the card. I have made the bowl edge as part of a lining instead of part of the card to enable the lattice to show up.

I am going to perfect the files and convert them and they will then be put on my website. Will probably be over the weekend now as it is my birthday tomorrow and don't know if I will have the time to do much crafting, lol. Of course it will all depend on what I get for my birthday as I may get something to play with, ha ha.

Flower Bowl Card

Made this today after designing the file for my Cougar Black Cat. For those who do not know what the Cougar is , you can find all the details here.

The base card was cut from white linen card. All flowers were cut from Pink Petticoat papers and stardream papers. Shaped the petals layered up and put a gem in the centre of each of them. Peel off for the sentiment and that is about it. The ribbon is an aid to pulling the flowers out of the bowl as they are attached to a message card.

Another card for Mum.

Made this from another of my files on the website. Card including aperture was cut on my Cougar Black cat. papaer is a foiled purple that I found in my stash. Edged using a punch and used on frony and on inside of card. I added an acetate wrapper shortened at front and edged with peel offs and a border and flowers which were all from my stash.
Think I need some more Mums, lol. Only have the one as my dear MIL is no longer with us so mine is getting spoilt now.

2 cards from last week.

This is one of the cards that I couldn't post until they had been sent and received. I cut this card from one of my files that will be added to my website later. It was cut from tapestry card then folded. Lined with pink stardream paper, I then added a ribbon to left side and 3 roses in the bottom corner, along with a cuttlebug corner to complete.

This is another of last weeks cards. This time I used a topper from my website, cut in red pearlised paper then glittered with crystal glitter. I then mounted it onto gold mirri card. A few more layers and then onto the card. Rose, charm and gems from my stash.

Been having a play.

Not sure about this. I designed my own birdhouse template for my cougar cutter. Ok with the design but not too sure about the card I made, lol.

I received a gift from my friend the other day. It was a selection of Promarkers, wow. Never used these before so thought I would have a bit of a play, so this is my very first attempt at colouring in an image using promarkers. Think I need a bit more practice, lol.
