Hugs and Snugs

More Bearly Mine Designs papers again, lol. Only using Vol I so far, don't think I will ever tire of these cds.
I am entering this card into two challenges, First one is the new Anyone For Anya challenge where the theme is sugar and Spice and all things nice. The second one is Passion for ProMarkers and their theme is to use at least two of four shades of purple Promarkers. I hope it fits the bill for both challenges.

Flower, ribbon etc from my stash.

A couple of cards at last.

Been ages since I managed to get some time together to make some cards it seems. Sorry I haven't posted for so long. I have lots on the go at the moment and of course crafting always seems to get put on to the back burner, lol.

Anyway had an order to do so managed to get two cards made at the same time as I have received my order from Bearly Mine Designs and lurrrrvvv the papers on the cds to bits.

This is for an order for a 40th card for a man. I always find it soooo difficult to make men's cards, just get bogged down with the pretty pretty cards and find it hard to leave off all the gorgeous flowers etc.

This is using papers from Designer Extreme Vol I from Bearly Mine Designs and I thought they looked perfect for a man's card.
Image is one I found somewhere on the internet ages and ages ago and coloured with copic markers.

The 40 is cut using a cuttlebug die and then mounted on to card and trimmed.

The second one I made using some more of the Bearly Mine Designs Vol I papers as I printed a few off to see which I wanted to use.
The gorgeous image is WoJ party Animals, cut with cuttle bug dies and coloured again with copics.
Just an added ribbon and some brads was all I needed to finish it.

Hope it isn't ages and ages again before I post and so sorry to all the wonderful bloggers who's blogs I have failed to visit recently, I will try and get back on track as soon as I can.

PfP Challenge #12

This weeks Passion for ProMarkers Challenge is to use Rose Pink and Cocoa. Took me a while to choose the stamp to use but thought that pink and brown were perfect for the cupcake image so decided on using this one, he is such a cheeky character.

I have also decided to enter the Whiff of Joy Challenge too as the challenge calls for Pink and Brown. Not entered this challenge before but sseing as I used one of their stamps AND it was a joy to make, well what the heck, lol.

Paper is Papermania
Stamp is Whiff of Joy Party Animals
Border is a border punch
Sentiment is computer generated
Leaves were cut on my Cougar Black Cat
Flowers, ribbon, pearls etc from my stash.

Anniversary Card

This was an order from my daughter to give to friends. She wanted something rather modern and not too flowery and didn't want a character stamp on it, boo hoo. So it took some time to get my brain working away from my beloved stamps, lol.

Papers are Pink Petticoat
Corner embellishment is cuttlebug
Hearts were cut on my Cougar Black Cat
All other embellishments were from my stash.

Challenge winner

I made this card for my Brother in Law's birthday and used it in the Passion for ProMarkers FaceBook Launch Challenge ( phew that was a mouthful, lol). The lovely people of PfP chose my card as the winning one. Wooo Hooo, never won a challenge before that could be because I haven't entered them though, ha ha. I was thrilled to bits and recieved 2 stamps from Greeting Farm and a bar of chocolate with a gorgeous wrapper around it. Thank you Ladies ( Gina and Ida ) for my lovely prizes.

Anyway couldn't show it before now as my Brother in Law's birthday was on Friday and didn't want it seen by him before then.

Papers are by Pink Petticoat
Image, sorry, can't remember, it is a week or so since I used it and my memory at the moment is not good. Will update later when I remember. It was coloured with ProMarkers.
Sentiment was computer generated
Stars and circles were cut on my Cougar Black Cat.
