Kenny K - Being Square

Oh my goodness, completely forgot to do this post, had a busy few days again and I am actually in the middle of cooking dinner but thought I had best quickly post my card for this weeks Kenny K challenge which this week is Being Square

Love this image and have had him for a while but this is his first time out.  Used him to make my brother a card for his birthday.

Sorry for the short post but will be back later to finish this off and enter him into some challanges.

Happy Easter and have a fab day whatever you are up to :)

Less is More - Use Beads

What is with this crazy weather, been snowing pretty much all day again today and it's set to snow all day cool means I can spend all day crafting :)

And look at all my lovely new things
Anyway on to this weeks Less is More challenge which this week is use beads.  Took me a while to decide what to do  but new I wanted to use one of my new stamps so used Make a Wish from Inkylicious.  Stamped it with versamark and embossed with WOW powder on Kraft card.

 I then glued small clear beads onto the stamped image.  Bit difficult to photograph mind so hope you can see them.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend and stay warm and safe.

Thank you for stopping by :)

Mo Manning - One for the girls

Well I have had a lovely couple of days off spent a fabulous day at the NEC yesterday and with all this snow, locked myself in my craft room and played with my new stash all day :)

This card is for one of my girlfriends at work and I love that Mo Manning creates her images in different ethnic versions and as my friend is black I went with colouring her with dark skin which I haven't done before and I am pretty pleased with how she turned out.  Not used much of my new stash on this card apart from my new red WOW embossing powder.  The label is a new d-lites which also came yesterday from create and craft.

Hope everyone has had a fab Friday and looking forward to a relaxing weekend :)

Less is More - Frame It

Well I have pondered long and hard over this one and really didn't know what to do for this weeks Less is More challange.

I had a play with a Kanban stamp I brought forever ago but was not very keen on my first attempt.
Actually doesn't look to bad in the photo but still I made another one........................
First one is coloured with inks and copics and second one with a prisma pencil.

Will leave it down to you guys to decide.

Really excited, off to the NEC tomorrow with a girlfriend from work, got my christmas pennies to spend and a nice long shopping list hehe :)

Joanna Sheen - Mum's the Word

Came across this lovely Joanna Sheen blog when looking for challanges to enter for Kenny K and thought I would enter with something completely different for me.

I was inspired by another card that I had seen on pinterest and have a few of Joanna's cd's and have printed out all the projects but have never made anything with any of them!  So after seeing Karin's card I thought why the heck am I not using these beautiful images!!!  I started making this card for my mothers 70th last weekend (went with something else in the end which I will hopefully show another time) but this card is now going to a lovely lady at work for her birthday.

These images are so beautiful they don't need much else to show them off, paper is from DCWV and flowers from WOC.  I saw a great idea again on pinterest using cheery lyn corner die which I used for the one flower.

Definitely different for me not having to colour an image in, mind you takes just as long to cut out all the pieces hehe but really enjoyed making this am looking forward to making the next one :)

Thank you for stopping by :)

Less is More - Colour Challenge

Managed to miss the Less is More challenge last week so really wanted to make sure I didn't miss this week, which is a colour challenge.
Hopefully I have got the colours right was a little unsure if they would work but seeing both the images together now I don't think I did to bad.
Used one of my favourite Clarity stamps, which brings me to the other challange I am going to enter with this card.  BARBARA GRAY has started a CHALLENGE BLOG WOOHOOOO!!! and as a lot of my less is more cards use her stamps this is fab news.

Thank you for stopping by, hope you are having a fab weekend and the sun has been shining where you are, actually managed to do some gardening today although I now have back ache so off to have a long soak in the bath :)
