Seaside fun.....

Good Morning Crafters,

Well today's card relates to the challenges on Fusion.

I wanted to do a card combining both challenges as I found them Both inspiring. 

Also the Catch the bugblog July Photo Inspiration challenge.

And finally Dream Valley Challenges Summer days see below link.

Hope I have succeeded!

I have no stamps for in relation to seasides, however just loved the theme so I had to go with it.

I looked on Google for any free vectors.  

I found a few images I wanted to use.  I found some stripy flip flops and starfish and sea urchin in a bright blue that matched, so I just had to use them and as I liked them so much I did a little decoupage at the front(standing out of the card)  

Unfortunately I do not have a oval die yet, however I love how my card turned out.

Afternoon Guys,

As I have not been able to post something everyday I needed to do a bit of catching up!!

So today I'm combining my challenges as they both gave me inspiration Less is more and Freshly made sketches.

I Loved making this card as the less is more theme was shoes and is all a girl wants so I had to go with it.

Unfortunately I do not have any stamps relating to shoes, however that why we have Google images!! LOL

I found this image and fell immediately in love with it and had to use it.  I also added font on the image I used Paint to add this and used the font Algerian as it went with the style I wanted to portray.

Here is the final product which I'm very pleased with.  My Card hope you like it as much as I do...

I have finally got round to entering this week's challenge at
Less Is More! I made the card at the weekend, however this is the first chance I have had to show you all it.


I have gone for a simple look using a new Martha Stewart punch and tried to keep it clean and simple

Here I have stamped the flower and then stamped it again using the same ink to give this two toned effect, it took a little time to cut the flowers out however the effect I wanted made it worth it.

To add a little details i have added the butterflys

Shades of Grey....


Today I thought I'd show you my little card for the challenge on Less is more Shades of Grey.

Being new to crafting i was struggling with this one as I needed some inspiration. Anyhow here is my card..

For the butterfly it was the first time I had used silver embossing powder which was very fiddly to use however with a bit of pink glitter i think it turned out.

Ben's Birthday Surprise....


Well today i attended my best friend for 31 years, little boys 1st birthday party. Obviously I had to make a lovely card for him so here goes...

Because he is a boy I went for blue animal theme and within this as I was at Jen's crafting with Lizy they suggested I enter a challenge to give me ideas.

The challenge I decided to join was from Freshly Made Sketches which fitted in nicely with my theme.

I love this Image from stampin up and decided to give it a bit of difference to by making the elephant and Lions stand out of the card and I love this effect.
