Friday Sketchers 80

This is my card for the challenge at Friday Sketchers . It is a lovely sketch this week and I hope I have done it justice. My image is a download from the The Greeting Farm and I have coloured it with Copic pens. This is the first time I have used these and I love them. Only have a few colours at the moment but I can see that changing. My base card is Bazzill Sea Breeze, BG papers are Magenta and SU. Flowers and ladybird were in a kit that I had from QVC several years ago. Ribbon is SU. Mock stitching around mat with Sakura pen. Thanks for looking and I welcome all comments.

The Sugar Bowl Challenge 24

This week over at The Sugar Bowl the challenge is a sketch by Marlene and also to include Zig Zag. I thoroughly enjoyed doing this card, fabulous sketch to work from. I have used Going for a Spin Sugar Nellie stamp. She is coloured with watercolour pencils and I have chalked around the image. Cut out with the Big Shot top note die. Background papers are all stampin up and ribbon and gems were from stash. I have used the sewing machine to zig zag around the edge. This is my first Easel card and I was thrilled at how simple they are to do. Butterfly charm from an old QVC kit. Having some problems with the camera but hope these are ok for now.
All comments are very much appreciated. Thanks for looking and have a great week.

Special Christmas Card

This is the Parchment card I have made for my parents this year. I was pleased with this one when I finished it. The flowers are actually from a sheet of Vellum which I have embossed and cut around, then attached to my base parchment card. Thanks for looking.

Friday Sketchers 76

Today I have attempted the sketch that Aud supplied for the challenge at the Friday Sketchers Blog
I have used Dovecraft Victorian Christmas papers, Image is A Stampin Up one from the set Snow Angels. I have used SU inks to colour, Ballet Blue, Bravo Burgundy and Night of Navy. Used my new Nestabilities Labels to mount the image on. Snowflake is from an old Christmas set from QVC.
Used dimensionals to raise text and main image.
Inside is quite plain, but then I don't normally bother. Trying different things. Enjoy
